Logo?

It’s a little pixelated, but I thought I would see if people like this logo in general first before working on a nicer one. This is the logo ICE used in the 90s for their Middle-earth products. I can try my hand at something more generic, if that is preferred.

Looks nice! I think Ashtagon is also working on one. In either case I hope we get a logo up for this place as soon as possible. :)

Before they had that logo, they used their special font to distinguish their products. How about this one? I can actually read it at 90x30, even with my terrible eyesight!

The original font for the "Middle-Earth" logo (before the "eye of fire" one, when it was just a fancy font at the top of the cover of the module) is called Scotford Uncial, in case anyone wants to play around with it.

Thanks for providing that information. I think that might help Ashtagon. :)

Not to keen on this shade of blue. Perhaps the covers of the MERP books could help?

Or Red:

Your earlier Black version works too IMHO.

Although I generally prefer a variant with the eye.

Just trying out different scaling algorithms. I like 1 and 8, with a slight preference for 1 (it looks more pixellated, but you get more detail).

I guess the sort of text-based logo AlHazred suggests would be my second favorite, however, I think a logoish logo like this is preferable because it’s more distinctive. Since the forum currently sits between Lankhmar and Call of Cthulhu (both of which have simple text-based logos), it would stand out more.

I prefer your logo on my books, but my old eyes have a hard time reading the text in your logo (but the text is there, so they always try...) :)

Anyway, here you go:
Light Blue:

I'm fine with either, but Falconer's option 1 seems the best.

BTW, was not agreed to put it up Falconer's option 1?
Maybe it just that the mods didn't have time to do it yet?
The Star Wars and Chtulhu forums too are without logos but they too were both decided, afaik..

Moderators can not do this. Only Ashtagon can do it. It's something to do with the way that phpBB works. It can't be uploaded like user account avatars. It has to be manually hacked into the forum. Otherwise I'd have put some of the logos on the forum myself.

I'll have a chat with her, to see if she has time to check out this topic.

I told her, but we were not able to get the logo up, at that time.

Chimpman has helped Ashtagon to get your logo up.

Thanks for all the help. :cool:

Current license uses a logo with ME and a circle around it.

I don't know if that means someone wants to change the logo here. The new one is kinda plain in comparison.
