Haha, it's only temporary!

But even so, you might notice a teeny weeny gap between the neck and the top of the dress that I only spotted after I uploaded. It's driving me nuts too, but I've been to lazy to find the file again and fix it up.

Actually, where is that damn file...

Not necessarily: Image vs Image
I think, both do still look ok. More so in the 32x32 versions: Image vs Image

And you can just use notable sections of a logo for a favicon, such as:

Cheers Emergence; it's a nice font - crisp, clean and stylish.

With a new logo (or, more accurately, a logo) will there be a new banner? I'm not very fond of the current one now. That's one thing that you'll learn about me; anything I design, a few months down the line I'll notice every problem there is and more and, consequently, I'll end up hating my design!

Judging by the quality of your logo designs, Emergence, I would love to see a banner design from you! You're extremely creative, original and talented, and I've loved your design inputs thus far! :)

That's normal I'd say. I design stuff myself and it's similar if not the same.
Btw, we will have new site altogether, I'll see if I can make the site's look and feel go with the logo.

@ Life.

Are you going to give the top three a second vote or just run off of this one?

"New site altogether"? Why do these words fill me with unease? :?


Should we all be very excited?

Seems as if #5 will take it then. Personally I think it's rather childlike - like a child's toy racetrack. Not very classy.
So the reason why God created the universe, including millions of years of human and animal suffering, and the extinction of entire species, is so that some humans who have passed his test can be with him forever. I see.

You are right Mym. thinking #5 is a race track is not very classy. NGTFOML.

14 looks extremely like Scientology to me.

I'm glad to see 9 is hangin on. I think it's underappreciated. Though I think the life preserver is too much of an "inside joke". I think the top half would make a good icon. Just enough to get all of his arms.
