: I like them, esp. [[Image:FC3.png|75px]] -- but I'd prefer them to be more visually distinct from the Debian logo: http://www.us.debian.org/logos/openlogo-nd-50.png --[[User:Erik Möller|Erik Möller]] 11:43, 21 May 2006 (CEST)

:: Ok, I understand. I will modify that image. --[[User:Bob4|Bob4]] 12:18, 21 May 2006 (CEST)
 
 
:::Erik, what about this? [[Image:FC10.png|75px]] --[[User:Bob4|Bob4]] 16:48, 21 May 2006 (CEST)
 
 
:::: Interesting - nice pastel colors, but will that approach work in grayscale? I might prefer the "petals" to flow into each other, using transparency and perhaps turning off the gray border. I have to admit I don't like the bounding box very much in this version. The black lines on the lower left look like a barcode, making the whole picture look a bit like a package ready to be sold. Perhaps try some radical variations here (circles instead of rectangles etc.)? I think the logo still would need a certain whoomp, something to make it stand out -- perspective perhaps, or color (the fact that you use pastels would let some high saturaton color stand out).--[[User:Erik Möller|Erik Möller]] 00:55, 22 May 2006 (CEST)
 
:::::A logo must be simple, because you see a little logo: I'll think to a more simple logo. --[[User:Bob4|Bob4]] 01:22, 22 May 2006 (CEST)
 
 
You can see well this logo also when it's little. [[Image:Free.png|75px]]--[[User:Bob4|Bob4]] 22:06, 22 May 2006 (CEST)
 
 
: Nice, just a tad sharp -- can it be made to look less aggressive?--[[User:Erik Möller|Erik Möller]] 22:54, 22 May 2006 (CEST)
 
 
::[[Image:Free2.png|75px]]
 
 
::: Hmm, interesting. Evokes toy/circus connotations for me. Would need to see a couple of variations to know if this is the right way to go. I think the colored blades should be a bit smaller, perhaps, and shades of the same color.--[[User:Erik Möller|Erik Möller]] 23:42, 22 May 2006 (CEST)
 
 
 
:::: [[Image:Free3.png|75px]] [[Image:Freex.png|75px]]--[[User:Bob4|Bob4]] 10:31, 23 May 2006 (CEST)
 
 
 
New type. [[Image:glob.png|75px]] --[[User:Bob4|Bob4]] 10:58, 23 May 2006 (CEST)
 
 
Excuse me, but what exactly do you mean by "This logo is not original." ? --[[User:Mfalzon|Mfalzon]] 21:43, 26 July 2006 (CEST)
 
 
:It was added by an unregistered user. I've asked them at [[User talk:87.3.20.163]] what they meant. [[User:Angela Beesley|Angela Beesley]] 19:45, 26 July 2006 (CEST)
 
 
::I hate to seem assuming bad faith, but this smells like FUD on the part of 87.3.20.163. --[[User:Lemi4|Lemi4]] 15:54, 15 September 2006 (CEST)
 
 
Any comments on variations in other languages? - perhaps avoid text in the logos/emblems, or allow alternative text within them? - e.g. in Chinese: 自由, Spanish, Italian, Arabic, French, Finnish, Swedish, German, kiSwahili, Zulu, Amaric, ... ?
