Other software / Re: "Paid for" shit & shame on the SMF team

Interesteding how it isn't allowed to discussing the upcoming Wedge when the up and coming xenForo was all the right over there?
XenForo was allowed because it is considered Premium (Paid) software and everyone now a days wants everything for free.  99% of SMF users are either low budget or perfectly content with free. SMF is not threatened by XenForo since it costs money, therefore allowing it to be included in discussion. If XenForo was free software it would have surly been removed from discussion the second Illori stumbled upon it, guaranteed.

I am actually liking that last one CJ Jackson. Only on the lighter background though. I don't think it looks very impressive on a dark background.

As I stated, those are just examples. I was not suggesting that you consider using one of them.   :eheh:
A wedge is an object that forces one section into two sections or separates two sections from each other. My point here is that if one wants to use a wedge as a symbol then it should be shown as a wedge and not just a simple, out of skew triangle.
If you ask me I would put the actual wedge image to the side for a wile and try some alternate options to go along with the text. I mean, does the logo object really need to be an actual wedge?

What I am saying is that the wedge symbol does not need to be the majority of the background. You can have a basic logo next to the text. The text does not necessarily need to be overlaying the logo. The logo itself can be something as simple as one of these.
Of course these are just examples. The colors can be anything you want.

@ARG> Err... Please :P
Lol. Of course a logo should be simple, clean and uncluttered with minimal colors and a standard font. My huge, overbearing 2 minute doodle was a sarcastic attempt to break the tension on what seems to be the tedious chore of creating a logo because so far I have not seen anything that is very impressive, in my opinion.
My real opinion on a Wedge logo would include a remake of the SMF logo. Not only would it piss them off but probably be trademark infringement as well.
Personally I think the wedge symbol itself should not be too overbearing but instead a small part of the logo. It is not really necessary for the wedge symbol to be a large part of the logo background.

Although removing all of your posts will throw a lot of conversations off course and deem them pretty much meaningless,
Isn't that the point of your site? :P
In a sense yes but having broken up conversations everywhere would just make everything look more like standard jibberish instead of meaningless jibberish.   :lol:

As for my leaving places, it's not just any one place in particular; I actively feel tainted pretty much everywhere, so I've removed my account from Bryan's site, closed my account as best as I am able on Meaningles, stated the situation as far as SD is concerned (I'm going to finish what I've started, which is one converter, the plugins that I've started so far, and issue the release build of SD itself) then remove my account there.
Arantor, I can delete your account at Meaning Les if you wish but I would appreciate a reason as to why you would like to do so. If it is because of a certain member that seems to know all, I wouldn't take anything they say with a grain of salt as they are running on thin ice as it is.
You have contributed many interesting opinions and I wouldn't want to see that end. Just let me know if you truly want to remove your account. Although removing all of your posts will throw a lot of conversations off course and deem them pretty much meaningless,  I will oblige if requested.

but taking a guess when the issue is right in your face isnt something that is right
Agreed. Basic Support can maybe get away with starting off by saying "This may be just a guess but..." 
But, when they have the word "Specialist" in their title then one would expect them not only to know all aspects of the product that they are supporting but also to read every support request possible and understand them completely before offering their solutions.

Not reading a support request thoroughly before offering support has always been an issue. I myself have done this on occasion but then again, I don't carry a "Support Specialist" badge either.

This is just a wild guess but I take it that the main page is not supposed to look like this in a 1024x768 resolution with Firefox?  :D
Not sure why the attachment doesn't show full size but you get the idea.

Here is a link to full size

All you really need to do is surf the SMF sites support topics. You will sooner or later get the overall feel of dictatorship and experience censorship at it's finest. It will be very easy to distinguish the good from the power hungry.
