    Got a new forum logo I see, was that changed today?

    [edit]

    Hmmm, looked at some cached forum pages from end of August and it was the same logo as the current one, for some reason it looks diferent :confused:

    Yes 10 mins ago, does it show OK? (glad to see you noticed)

    Its a refreshed version of the old one thanks to a forum member providing it to me FOC.

    Smoother rounded edges, better gradients

    Good, thought I was seeing things :)

    Yeah, I like it, looks much cleaner than the old one.

    Noticed that this morning too - looks very nice, like the gradient and more modern look, appealing. :)

    Admin removed the 'posh' theme some time ago...

    I like the new logo though, looks much better... How about sprucing up the acorn to match? :p

    Ah right - you would think that acorn would have grown into a tree by now ;)

    Does need to be bolder, with a lot more colour.

    I cant say that I notice a lot of change from the old one.

    I think that is a good idea, maybe you could have a contest and perhaps the winner gets to promote a domain (featured domain)

    Think this quote is relevant with the new logo.

    When I first joined AD, I thought the Acorn had relevance in the collecting of domain names, like a squirrel would collect acorns, so I've never been 'nuts' about the 'nuts about domains' tagline, but just my personal opinion.

    I see your views, it was referring to people being "nuts" in terms of being domain addicts not simpletons or stupid.

    I would just like to "big up" Synapsys for raising this in the first place and proving me with the new logo as is.

    Nice one.

    Just logged on, thought the logo was new, then looked for a thread about it to make sure I wasn't going 'nuts'.

    It's a lot sharper - nice job. :)
