This is just a newbie idea, but I think the Forum Logo could be tweaked to be 'sharper', yet still be simple (for a near-nothing load time). What'd think? A little better? :)

Probably a bad idea...actually, I should be writing right now. Darn my idle distractions. :Huh:

I like shadows over flatness :P

Actually, I just wanted to leave more or less like it was...and just sharpen the edges...just 'cause.

Hi, TT.

A year or two ago, there was a "logo redesign contest", and the current one won. I'm pretty sure Mac and Jenna will appreciate your efforts, but it's probably too early to change the logo again. Frankly, I'm not too crazy about the current one myself, but everyone got a chance to vote at the time and that's the one selected, so there's not much to complain about.

You have a good idea, just maybe at the wrong time.

I'm thinking maybe screen resolutions have gotten better and sharper since the contest. :)

Nice idea tho', Travis. Now go get some writing done. :D

Why doesn't that Nike-like swoosh have a drop shadow? It makes it look too different from the lettering.

I'm only up to 1600x1200 on this CRT, but whatever...

Is it true in graphic arts that your first million logos are crap?:)

If you right click and 'view image' on the current logo it is actually a lot sharper. Seems in resizing it it has lost a bit of its clarity like the OP noted.

Too much time on my hands, its ticking away with my sanity
Ive got too much time on my hands, its hard to believe such a calamity
Ive got too much time on my hands and its ticking away from me
Too much time on my hands, too much time on my hands
Too much time on my hands
