I think variants with the sign would be perfect to randomly appear as logos :)

I find your lack of stylized SGA disturbing...

BRILLIANT. Both of you! The elder and sign with different scripts is inspired, and I love your letting and sign design, kvee!

I'll send a message to the admins (I'm just a global moderator) off-platform to kick start action of getting these up. We have a few new options since happy yorp - which is our priority until I put the random selection code together?

These are great! Only the foot is kind of... meh. Disgusting and disturbing in a way. Don't add it.

Maybe Keen can pet a yorp? That would be great.

Awesome! :love I'd really like to see a Keenish colour scheme instead of the default one again. There could be multiple skins so that anyone who prefers the prosilver theme could still select it in the board preferences. I recall that there are also members who would like to have a dark mode. :mort

Oh, and what about a logo for the Keen: Modding forum? While it never had a custom skin (and apparently doesn't need one), it did have its own logo before the move.

Stumbled on an ancient logo discussion thread (legit by chance - wasn't looking for logo stuff at all) just now and found the yorp on a sign design has a precedent in this delightful piece from Spleen:

Could do with some cleaning up, but it'll do for now.
viewtopic.php?p=524#p524

Just thought it was a nice coincidence :) Nisaba's take works better for a modern forum. (And is just as delightful!)

I've messaged one of the admins about getting a new logo up, and they're going to look into whether they can do it. If they can't, I'll bother Fleex. The gargshow later in the thread linked above suggests changing the logo in older phpBB versions required direct server access, so here's hoping things have improved in the last 12 years.

:old

Yeah, we should definitely go with something brighter and more concise like those ones Nisaba posted.

Ahhh, I can't decide between the Keen reading Kant, the how to read SGA, or the happy Yorp. Dangit Nisaba, you're just too good. :D

We should be able to use them all, with one showing up at random each time the page is loaded.

I liked the old Green Bay packers colour scheme. This one feels too defaulty.
A script to rotate the logo would be neat, too.

If you can manage a script to randomize it between all of the above (and more as they come) that'd be truly Keen. :)
