Hi All,

With the launch and success of Sims2Community a few weeks ago, and in preparation for upcoming changes to MTS2 in the future, we tend to review all aspects of the site. One of these is the logo itself. Originally designed by Aobh, it's been sitting up there quietly since the site's inception over a year ago.

Our question to you is simple: should MTS2 have a new logo?

Vote and comment if you like.

Regards,
Delphy

It would be cool to see some change. Maybe have a contest for a new logo. I don't know what the winner would get. Brownie points? LOL!

I agree with lobstergirl, we should have a contest to design it and whoever wins maybe gets some special downloads from the creators or something like that, I dunno. But I think it'd be cool if we could have a contest to design it, it'd give me something to do instead of sitting around in the live chat all day...

By the way, Delphy.... that "I'd rather thump-a-Delphy instead" option is way too tempting for someone like me... hehehehe.

Delphy,

I think a contest would be great considering the immense talent level that resides within this site. I dont know what a free website could give away but i'd do it for free myself. Maybe you can think about getting shirts made with the logo on it and the winner gets a hat or shirt of their choice? Just tossing it out there. I'll await a contest announcement

Oooh, he's on to something up there ^^. I like that idea about having a t-shirt and hat with the logo for the winner, that's cool.

Maybe a logo contest would be a good idea, but then there would be thousands of entries for one simple thing. Maybe it would be better if moderators all attempted and the rest vote, otherwise a contest would be way time consuming

narlakins thats smart of you. I didn't even think of that. There are probably more then 1000 members to MTS2 some of which are wonderful creators. It would take a long time to view all the logos... and decide between them...

We thought about a contest but we didn't know if there would be sufficient interest in changing it to warrent the time put in.

And yes, we'd thought of prizes too. How about lifetime free downloading privilages?

How about the prize being that your logo is going to represent a site with 90k members
If Delphy goes along with the contest, I could contribute a recolor set or something.

As far as the original question, CHanging logos has good sides and bad- the old one is kind of our trademark so it will be odd to see it go.... but the s2c logo is more modern and it might be nice to see something more modern as well... whatever everyone decides im cool with.

Hmmmmm.... I am quite attached to the old logo.

What is history but a fable agreed upon?

I think a new logo would be a great idea, although if you do have a contest I'd be sad if it was just moderators.
Maybe some of the people who run pay sites or have donation packs could allow the winner a short time to have access to those things. I know I'd love to attempt making one, I've never been too good at skinning or modding the sims 2 but I can make graphics.

I agree that is a very good prize just having it seen by 90 k people!

Thump-a-Delphy... :bricks: Hmmm, never mind.... LOL

Seriously, change is allways refreshing, so a new logo is in order... I think the idea brought on of a contest would be a great idea. It would represent a lot of what this site is about, "creating". I am sure the folks here would display some very appetizing logo's...

Hi to all, I just became a member today. The first time I even looked at the logo was when I stumbled across to poll. I voted to change it on that alone. Seems to me that should be one of the first things to catch your eye.

Well, that prize would be pointless seeing as MTS2 is a free site. Lol!

NEW! LESS SUCKS SIGNATURE!

COLOR TAGS ACTUALLY REMOVED!

I'd hire someone to design a logo just so I could win that!

I think anyone who wants to should be able to enter. Limit 1 logo per person. This site has always been open and supportive to everyone, and there's plenty of talent here who are not mods.

Still, that leaves a voting dilemma if there are hundreds of entries.

I think the mods (poor mods) should then pick the their fav (10?) logos.
Then there could be a site poll/vote to pick the new logo from that set.

I think it should stay the same. It is a trademark of the greatest free sims2 site!

the present logo says it all: cracking open the Sims2

it shows exactly what modding the sims is all about in a simple picture

why a new one is needed escapes me....as the saying goes: if it aint broke, dont fix it
