Why not the old R/F logo, but rising from the Flames.  Flames licking at the shield but not burning.  I think it shows the resiliancey(sp) of us rennies.

What do you think??  A bit of the old to go with the new?

DB,

I love it.  I wonder if it is possible to make the limited edition pins slightly larger than the normal ones?  Or would that be too difficult?  Perhaps a half inch taller and then whatever increase in width required to keep the relative proportions the same.

I think the key is keeping it clearly recognizable a RF.com pin.

Regards,

CB

Sorry we got kinda sidetracked on logos when this thread was specifically about the actual look of the forum itself, hence the voting poll.  Any further discussion about R/F pins will be in the dedicated thread.

I like number 2. Dark forums are hard on the eye most times. And, just so you know "I didn't do it!!!" LOL....

I vote against the black/dark colors as well.  Too hard to read, and kinda depressing.  :D

Thanks for letting us give input!

That's why I missed this forum so much.  Talented and creative people with a sense of humor.

It's also interesting that all these people chime in about not liking the dark background but number 3 is getting the most votes.  I'm sure DB will set it up so you can choose which ever you like.  I prefer the dark background because the white screen is what is harsh and hard on the eyes.  Depressing should be determined by the content, not the look.

I do miss seeing the faces of friends on top.  Even though they are seen over and over, I still smile when someone I know shows up.  I hope someday we can have that feature back.

Oh, and how about a spel chek?

God, yes.  Larger and bold like Max and Kate's post.  I haven't seen anybody mention that but some did say their eyes were not what they used to be so they didn't like the black background.  White on black helps a bit but the font is so small that it's a strain to read.

I know you can change the font size but you have to do it on every post.  A larger font should be the default.
