I prefered the old one, but it's not like it looks bad or anything. Strange, I had a nom forums page open, refresh and get this. First thing I checked was the News Announcement :P

Cool beans! awesome we have a sandvich logo. And I'll probably stick with the light version. The dark one makes me feel like I'm in a dark room. alone.

Hehe.. yeah, I just kind of traced over it with a pencil tool. I'm no graphic artist.

I'll play with it a little, see if I can't get that jagginess to be a little more subtle. You can't expect too much smoothness to come from a 75x55 sandvich.

The smilie thing bothers me a bit too, but that's a problem that IPB gave us. Lazy people didn't set their alpha channels properly.

Meh, it's okay in my opinion. It's just going to be really hard to get used to this. I loved IP-Duo so much. :wacko:

Why not use the sandvich from the front page? That was just from the heavy update page.

That's the source image I used, but I wanted it to be a simple two-tone representation, so the logo wouldn't be too busy and match the rest of the design. I've finished cleaning it up too.

This will be an adjustment, but I like change. I'll poke around the new features sometime.

I love the two tone sammich. It's just too blocky and needs to be smoothed.

Also, we should have little sandviches instead of tf2 symbols for our rating thingy.

I was playing around the Thoreau light skin, since I agree it's a little too bright, and gave it a bluish tinge and/or darkened some bg elements.
Try out Thoreau - Mod, and post feedback in the feedback forum.

Just a thought. Why not copy the image and do it yourself, then submit it here?

I'm sure Neh wouldn't mind you taking a stab at it.

Each rank is its own image, so you'd have to line them up for each rank.
If you want to try, go right ahead. Here's a png.

I'll try my hand at smoothing the logo.

edit:Derp, goombac beat me to the punch.

If you try to fail and succeed, which did you actually do?

Wow. very nice, and much better than my hand-traced version. No time right now but expect that to show up in the logo image soon.

Click the "Click To Attach Files" button, then select your file in the dialog. You can add more than one at a time by selecting them all at once, or just add them individually. If you're having browser issues, make sure you have scripts enabled here, and if you're STILL having trouble, switch the basic uploader by clicking the "Try switching to our basic uploader" link.

note that all of this is only available in the full editor, the quick reply box won't do any of this.
