That's called "stylized". Either that or "you get what you pay for". I think he's got a skin condition that makes the right side of his cephalo-face swell up.

The new logo looks great in Black Pearl. Classy, inasmuch as that word encompasses an octopus rampage.

is it possible to lower the logo so it's touching the lower red border, or to 'uncrop' it (if more of the image exists)? that expanse of space underneath ruins the effect.

What theme? Not sure what you mean -- the logo is a transparent PNG and doesn't have a border.

Yea, I think it is just that the gap (put in by phpbb I would think) beneath the logo is just excessive.

You don't notice it on logos that don't have a flat bottom.

Still looks good but would be even better if the blank area beneath it were 10-25% of what it is.

Is there a high resolution version of the new logo?

That would look awesome as a lithograph.

Looks like New York. The Octopus seems to be getting intimate with the Chrysler building. That would have been a sight to see from my balcony when I lived in NYC. Before jumping off the balcony in madness, of course.
From a recent interview with Pope Francis: “I have a dogmatic certainty: God is in every person’s life. God is in everyone’s life…Even if the life of a person has been a disaster, even if it is destroyed by vices, drugs or anything else—God is in this person’s life. You can, you must try to seek God in every human life.”

Is there no way to write a simple script to rotate through the best 4/5 logo images once a week/month or so? That might make everyone happy and keep things from getting stale.

I didn't realize that was Santa. I thought it was an ode to our most recently published member.

I suspect that might actually have been an attempt to un-holidaze the logo but the wrong image is selected.
wot?

To be fair, adolescent power fantasy tripe is way easier to write than absurd existential horror, and every community has got to start somewhere... right?

Unless one loses a precious thing, he will never know its true value. A little light finally scratches the darkness; it lets the exhausted one face his shattered dream and realize his path cannot be walked. Can man live happily without embracing his wounded heart?
