Logo Alternatives

Cunt has another logo for us to think about. I decided to make a thread for discussing logos.

Here is the current logo.



Here is an icy version

We're also going to need a favicon. Any thoughts on something recognizable at 16x16 px? "MR" on a solid background is probably the most legible. Or maybe a stylized M of some sort.

I like his art. The water comes closest to rompy. I think the favicon should be the M from the main logo or maybe the MR.

Thanks, but I don't know what 'favicon' means...

it's the tiny image representing the website that you see on browser tabs, that help you easily identify the site. They should be kinda striking, like the colorful lower case g for google, and the facebook-font f for facebook, etc.

If I had the design specs (please more input from everyone!) then I could have a whack at it...do you know what size/format they are usually in?

Will you lazy fuckers please dream out loud here as if I could create your fancy, in photoshop?

I will happily make something up with the colours, shape or other characteristics you think perfect.

For instance, the water one - I am a fair pixel-tech, but don't have 'art'. Someone who knew design/drawing could have finished it much better. (finishing being the placement/size of the drops and the 'bloating' of certain parts of the letters)

Come on and try it out! Dare me - I fucking dare you!

I like the water one. It doesn't look great on the grey background of the vanilla skin... can the vanilla skin be changed in any way shape or form to better show the title?

The icy one and the Goodies one I'm not so keen on.

I would prefer to leave the vanilla skin mostly alone for people who are used to it from other sites.

but I don't want it to be our default skin.

What do you think of these TR skins, not so much the specific colors, but the contrasts. These skins do away with the white rectangle, and the dark colors are in place of the grey background in this skin.

shades of grey: http://talkrational.org/index.php?styleid=21

Light on dark: http://talkrational.org/index.php?styleid=18 (this is my "migraine" template)

The TR logo/heading retains good contrast no matter the colour of the background. So I guess cunt's heading ideally needs tweaking so it too retains good contrast.

As an aside, and maybe this is an embodiment of me being an accountant, but I personally like the vanilla skin in comparison to all those skins [and jeebus christ on a xmas candy cane I just burnt my eyes on the bling skin there!!] So you can have different headers for each skin? Maybe that's the answer if we stick with the water heading

Yes I did just admit to that.

Heh I just tried to edit my post, because the "yes I did just admit to that" was in relation to my admission of liking the vanilla skins.

It let me jump through the hoops but then told me I only had 1 minute to edit. With the speed of my internet here, I'd possibly NEVER get an edit in quick enough.

Is there any point to 1 minute?

^ do the admins get special privileges wrt this? I appreciate they need to sometimes edit others' posts, but should they be allowed to edit their own beyond the forum-specified time frame?

it's all or nothing for admins. I personally would prefer the members are able to edit their posts for a reasonable time. I will have to turn off edits at the individual forum level. boardwide 1 minute is th minimum.

Offhand, I would say ABSOLUTELY NOT. Admins are members except when they are adminning.

But I have been wrong before.

Edited in by Adenosine: Checking we can edit other people's posts.

I just missed oblivions post. At phpbb, when someone had posted before my post, there was a warning. With this quick reply thingy there wasn't.

If admins have the luxury of being able to edit their posts, then I think ordinary members will get pissed off if they notice admins being able to something to their own posts.

1 minute is of no practical purpose. It needs to be reconsidered IMO.
