I am incredibly pleased to announce that our forum now has a logo of its own, courtesy of Blanko. Everyone owes Blanko a drink, or something. Truly this is a milestone for our forum!

Post by: Thork on December 04, 2013, 09:55:38 PM
I like it but we also need a simple version of it so we can use it on things that need to be small.

For example, the site hasn't yet got a favicon.

Blanko is truly talented.  However, it does look a lot like the old logo, just rearranged.  I am not saying that I don't like it, though.

I think it fits really well with the current theme. Well done.

I agree, I'm gonna make a small simple version for read/unread icons and favicon. Also, there's gonna be an alternate version for the Wiki.

We might be able to incorporate some of the colours (the brown/cream colour) into a new theme, if we ever need one. Just pondering.

Could you post a screenshot? I thought I had fixed that.

I'm on my phone at the moment and I haven't figured out how to screenshot on a Galaxy Xpress. I'll check it on my computer tonight.  It could just be a size issue on my phone.

We can make it smaller if we don't get it otherwise sorted out, or if people think it looks too large now. I made it bigger because I expected it to scale down poorly, but that didn't end up being the case at all.
Title: Re: New logo!
Post by: spoon on December 04, 2013, 10:36:14 PM
Yeah, I love the logo. I just think the edges of it are too close to the edge of the blue box it's in. I know it's nitpicky. Others might disagree.

When different grammatical and spelling nuances appear in EJ's annoying shitposting, it's pretty obvious he's doing it on purpose. I know he's not hurting anybody, but I don't see why he's allowed to post in the upper fora. The user behind the computer is almost certainly capable of forming sensible responses, but chooses to post crap instead. I think it is intentional annoyance, in other words "being a dick".

EJ, do you get off to people telling you that you're stupid? This is a serious question. And if the answer to that question is no, then I'm afraid you are indeed stupid. Either way, you should consider improving your life in some way.

The new site is about making improvements. I was just making it known that I consider EJ a detriment, even if just a small one.

But yes. I love the logo. The color of the water and the creamy background complement the theme excellently.

Yeah, they do work well. PizzaPlanet already did board icons as you may have noticed, and I just redid them with edited levels and borders.

I know. I already tried something else for a favicon, but it may be better just to use a scaled down logo. I'll maybe edit its levels as well; the colors on the smaller versions seem to look too faded out.

Yeah, we'll end up using a simplified/small logo on all kinds of things. Maybe keyrings/pens/membership medals etc in the future. Something easy to see when its small would be usefu.

I dicked around with favicons a bit today and I can't figure out why they won't work. I don't see this as a priority issue, and I am a little bit busy until the 10th, so I'm not going to focus on it right now. I will give it a go every now and then, though, and assuming Parsifal doesn't beat me to fixing it, I'll give it a more serious attempt then.

into the header?

Hey kids! It occurs to me that some (Tintagel) are interested in using the logo for their own creations. This is perfectly fine, but the larger logo on the first page is a horrible version with no anti-aliasing. So, for your convenience, I fixed it up a bit in case anyone wants to use it:
