NB: I've reset the poll. Let's focus on the font right now. I'd post larger thumbnails for your convenience, but that's precisely it -- I'm looking for opinions on the font when it's really downsized a lot.
I'm allowing for 2 votes out of 3 options, in case you really don't know which one you like best, and just want to eliminate the one you like the least. If you have a favorite, of course just vote for it and only for it ;)

Ah, don't get me started on that...

So... A bit of an update.

- After about a week, results were 8/11/5, so I've removed the last font which had 'only' 5 votes. The only person who voted only for the last one is Alanthar, so I'm inviting you to choose between the two remaining fonts now.

- I've replaced the small fonts with bigger versions. I tend to see the second font as the better one in small format because it's more readable, and the first font as the better one in large format because it's more lively. Votes aren't reset, you're free to keep your current vote as it is!

- I've added two more fonts that are of the 'very common' kind. I like common fonts because they feel natural to people :P You can vote for up to 3 fonts, I'll reduce the number afterwards. Hopefully faster than in the first batch. Say, in a couple of days.

- And you're also free to suggest any font I could have missed!

PS: And you're free not to participate in these polls if you don't care. :whistle:

Bump, fishing for more votes as this topic is now hidden in the mass. ;)

Bloc, I think you did vote at some point. Did you remove your vote or is it a bug due to my modifying the poll midway through it? (there IS a bug at least when it comes to positioning poll items.)

I did, but it vanished so it might be a bug there. Can't remember what I voted before lol,, but I like the current number 3. It just feels more balanced than the others, although there are little difference between them - save the font/style.

I'm really upset about that bug.

Although maybe last time you voted for the 3rd one, the one I removed in the meantime and replaced with the new #3 and #4...? In which case it'd make sense that your vote got removed.

The font/style is supposed to be the only difference between all these choices. Basically, the logo, square, colors etc. are pretty much final at this point, at least for the footer logo. I'm keeping my options open when it comes to the homepage logo...

Looks like the 2nd logo font is still the popular one, doesn't it?
Well, at least it looks good in small sizes ;)

It does.

I like the "wamer" feeling of lowercase here..if that makes sense. Could be that when I first saw the logo last year(?) it was using lower-case and it just felt right for wedge when i dabbled with it too. Uppercase seemed so bombastic and still does I guess.

It totally makes sense...
Which reminds me, I had a logo under the hand which I liked, but felt it was too barebones... I had a quick look at it again, and thought, 'barebones? well that isn't a bad thing now is it..?'

So, you decide :) I'm not a huge fan, but I like it enough to think there might be potential once it's tweaked enough. If you're interested, I can also attach the original logo file for you to play with.

Watching it again also made me realize it looks a bit like the amazon logo, but it doesn't have the same history at all, so it's just a coincidence. :P

Bump for the logo above... Right or wrong track?

The lettering is fine, if a bit bland; the tail of the g is nice, but I'm not entirely sure about it.

I personally like it because it's a throw back to the old logos... And it's simple enough to warrant not having to bother too much about details.

Here are a couple of variations... Different fonts, different colors. Second one isn't too good, was looking for a color replacement, but the font may be too light. As for the first... It's actually my original idea, which I then later tried to simplify even more. Works best when shown with a large border on its left, of course...

Posting smaller version... with a border.

I like the original, and the red-on-black one. The thing you've done with the g is nice however to me it looks a bit like the nike tick.

The Nike tick is not something that comes to mind.... It's thinner than my own tick, to begin with. And my 'tick' is actually a wedge, mind you :P They don't own the 'deformed triangle' shape, do they? ;)

Here's another test with a larger wedge and a small solid white halo around the logo...
