Thank you.

I think all the logos are expressing a vision for the site I don't really understand. The stuff that attracted me to AA in the first place was the focus on classic gaming. You guys know old school like almost nobody I know. (There's maybe one other guy. He wrote a port of Astrosmash for the Amiga.) I loved the chiptunes article Matt wrote. I think that's what brought me to the site in the first place. That forum thread where people were guessing tunes from Sinclair games was just amazing. I probably listened to the Gleylancer music for days after that guy with the power glove icon posted it. Imagine that, jamming to music from a Mega Drive game I'd never heard of. Brilliant!

I suppose I should have said more at the time, huh? :P Regardless, thank you for both the classic and the obscure. That's what I love about AA.

I asked Dragon to do a third variation of Logo 1 with a one pixel white border around the yellow version of the logo, which I personally prefer. I believe the third variation would now work best on backgrounds of ALL colors. Hopefully, problem solved. In any case, here is the updated voting, which will be ending in a few days:

Number 1: 5 Votes (Bill Loguidice, Forcefield58, Fighter17, Catatonic, Dragon57)

Number 2: 2 Votes (Heyspider, Mike Gupta)

Number 3: 4 Votes (Seb, Megaperfect, Mark Vergeer, Spin)

Number 4: 0 Votes (new entry)

Close, voting, but...

It appears that Number 1 wins by a hare. Thanks to everyone who took the time to participate. Congrats, Dragon57!

I vote for entry 3 on the

I vote for entry 3 on the white.
Though to truly represent it should have through hole technology not the surface mount shown.
Not that I am pickey though.
I like rotating logos better never stay the same for too long.
