He's ugly. Too much saturated red and heavy blackness:

Who wants to hold a contest for a new logo thing in the media section?

Human, your opinion is hurtful. I cannot help being red any more than you can help being pink.

Also, please read the board guidelines regarding images in signature blocks.

That logo is actually not that old, it was revamped not all that long ago and it does look alot better now.

I like this logo, it depicts "Gaming" "History" "Modernization" "Idea" and "Basics" really nicely, and I love saturated red! :D

Nooooo! You please read my rhetorical statement regarding rhetorical statements: You have a rhetorical statement there.

So? It doesn't become uglier over time.

Why must it depict those?

Yes it does, our taste of 'good graphics' shifts in time.

False. We can redraw you or even get rid of you. :evil

Also, the Pie Man is capable of chromomorphism.

So you want to keep Endian? I think he's fine as long as you change the blueness of the entire site. He really puts a lot of dissonance into the site's theme:

That and Endian as close as they are. Horrific.

I suggest we at least recolor him.

I don't know about that, It surely is a contrast element, but from a design perspective, you want logo to standout, not blend with the background. It's true that you don't want the logo to be attracting more attention then the content but that is mostly handled by the nature of how "Forum" works, so once you scroll down its not disturbing anymore.

But to be fair, i can't say its the best possibly designed logo there, i can imagine it being something else or look a little different, but personally i would stick with the red color

You like the dissonant red? That's my main problem, Sir.

I have no problem with the logo standing out, but it's beating up the blueness with a red fist of tyranny.

So it's decided then. Lil Endian shall remain as he ever was. Ruber ad rubeum in the ancient tongue. His glorious red tyranny shall bask lovingly upon the pages of GPWiki until the final electron fizzles through the ruined husk of what people will suppose must once have been a proud and mighty Internet.

This is how things tend to be resolved once you get magenta involved.

That makes me feel funny. Do you ever plan on making anything else in the theme complement endian in some way? He bugs me.

It's not magenta... It's cyan/blue, like the forum.

Here's some real magenta for your poor sacks called eyes to feast on: :evil
