New Favicon?
« on: August 19, 2013, 09:48:01 pm »
So I was thinking.  Now that we're divorced from FSTDT, shouldn't we have a new favicon to go with it?  After all, we went through the trouble of choosing a new board name and a new url, so why no further sever ties by changing the favicon?

Now, I don't have any partiular ideas at the moment, particularly because I'm not even sure how popular this idea is, but I was hoping this thread could be used to foster discussion on the matter.  What do you guys think?

Also, as I type this I realize that this could potentially go in another forum, although this didn't occur to me until I was through most of my post.  Also, I have to run and take a shower here as I'm going to have dinner with my family soon, so i don't have too much time to muse.  Anyway, I just want to see how much traction this idea has, hence this thread.

Yeah, a favicon would be nice.

I guess. I'm sort of attached to the old one, but if this takes off I kinda feel like if we don't, Distind will try to sue out of spite (even though I'm not exactly sure if FSTDT's usage was legal anyways). So, brainstorming time?

* FQA with the Q having devil horns, mocking our status as heretics and sinners.
* FQA tattooed or branded on the forehead of a smiley face that has devil horns for the same reason.
* Bland FQA
* Zombie Jesus

It needs to be something that is still recogniseable when it's small. So any of those more complicated things are not going to work.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

Yeah, our current one violates that unless you've seen the original. I don't like the bland one (it's bland) but the horns on the Q one would work.

For some reason, whenever I think of the term "Frequently questioned answers", an image of that photo with Einstein sticking his tongue out always pops into my head... I'm not sure why...

But the Q/Horns one sounds cool too.

Here's an extremely rough sketch of what the favicon might look like if we go with the devil horns over the Q (Arial font, 10pt)

And that's a bad thing?
Quote from: William Lyon Mackenzie King
There are few men in this Parliament for whom I have greater respect than the leader of the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation. I admire him in my heart, because time and again he has had the courage to say what lays on his conscience, regardless of what the world might think of him. A man of that calibre is an ornament to any Parliament.
