Vote for GTF's new logo!

Unread postby Anonymous Boy » 20th March, 2017, 6:45 am

Update: Results now available here.

Dear members,

You can now vote for the site's new logo, which will be used in Quarto, the responsive theme which will be replacing AeroBlue as the default. Out of close to 50 logos that were posted as part of the logo design competition on GTF and GFO, 16 have been put forward to take part in the vote. Since this is way too many to take part in a normal poll and we also want to gather data about people's second and third choices, I've created a dedicated voting system for situations like this:

--> Click here to vote! <--

Please read the instructions on the screen and follow them carefully.

Most crucially, please be sure to keep clicking the logo you like least. This will result in your top 3 being determined and submitted automatically.

I wrote the voting system from scratch; it's been tested quite thoroughly, but if you do come across any bugs, please let me know! Also if you have any questions or comments, please feel free to post or message me.

The voting system was designed to make it easy to compare the logos and figure out which ones you like most, while encouraging you to really consider all of them rather than just the ones that you already know you like and avoiding bias by presenting logos in random order.

Voting will close on Sunday the 26th, and the results will be announced the next day.

Quarto will then become the default theme with the new logo, which should result in Google sending us more new visitors in the future, since the site will be considered mobile-friendly and we will gain Google's favour in search results on mobile devices (which already constitute 65% of our visitors).

Sorry this has taken so long! I would have liked to get it done much sooner, but I've had about as much work to do in the past 2 months as I usually get in 6-7 months, meaning I haven't really got around to much else.

-René

P.S. Logo creators: I hope you're all happy with the way your logos have turned out in the screenshots, but if there's anything you'd like to tweak, or if a logo you submitted seems to be missing, feel free to PM or email me!

Firstly, I love the voting system and the fact that we're doing this


Secondly: When will this be implemented? And what is the progress on the theme?

I'm glad you like it :keke:

There is some polishing left to be done, but nothing to delay the introduction of Quarto as the main theme once the new logo is known. Both the implementation of the logo and the switch to Quarto as the default will take place within a few days after voting ends.

I figured I wouldn't start them both at the same time in case there were any problems, but 27 people have voted so far and everything seems to be working as expected.

The vote on GFO is now up as well.

Voting system is amazing, you never cease to amaze René!

Looking forward to the implementation. I hope my #1 wins bahaha. Guess I'm finally going to have to switch from Aero Blue. :weep:
