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.
+1 :cool:

Is the shape too big? Or it's just about the colors?
There's an infinity of possibilities... Just look at this, took less than two minutes to do. :P

I don't think it's about the size or the colours, it's simply that it is just too reminiscent of the Nike swish and there's not a lot you can do about that without changing the fundamental idea.

I gotta say that the Nike logo came to mind long before you mentioned Amazon - I can see the similarity but it's still more Nike than Amazon.

So if i changed it to an Amazon logo ripoff that'd be better? :P

Not really :P

Seriously, I'm not saying it would be better or worse, just that as it stands I'm reminded strongly of Nike, and vaguely (when prompted) of Amazon, not of anything forum related.

It's not supposed to make you think of a forum, rather of a wedge... Don't lose it :whistle:

Just in case, I've added the latest option to the poll, you can still vote for 3 items or less, but I doubt the current leader will be any different in a few days... So I guess we're staying with the uppercase version for now ;)

Nao,

Figured I'd throw my hat in the ring > Had some spare time on my hands and came up with this...

Nice logo! The font not my cup of tea though.

Nevertheless, I doubt this will gather enough interest compared to the consensual current default so I won't add it to the poll.

No matter, I'm quite fond of it though.

If you look closely @ the letter "E" it kind of resembled a fork to me so thought it would be appropriate. If anything the logo colouring slots in nicely with the rest of the site > Quite striking I thought. The emblem in the logo was derived from one of the other fonts I toyed with. After some nifty manoeuvres the "W" emerged.

Ho hum back to the drawing board.

Nao, if you don't mind giving me a couple of the fonts you've used on the above logos so I can try working on a few myself.

@Oracle> I also played with the fact that 'W' and 'E' are similar in shape, but the results weren't particularly interesting. Well, I've made plenty of logos I find better than the current one, but that's the thing, it's something so frontal, it needs to be liked by most.

@agent47> Aller Display, Segoe UI, Helvetica (various types, such as LT or Neue...), and Sansation. I think these are all the ones used in the logos in the poll. Lato, Lobster, Meta, TheSans, Tin Doghouse, theeeese are a few of my faaaaavorite thiiiings... Errr, a few of my 'sanctioned' fonts, for attempts at doing a Wedge logo.
Not that you can't use another font... It's just that I've always wanted a 'professional' looking font.

I haven't worked on the logo for the last few months though. I lost interest, I guess, mostly after everyone else did the same... ;)

Design might be kinda neat on a shirt.
Thank you,
