Can't understand what it says.

morning  Wink hmm if you're referring to the red part, it says Java Gaming; As you have pointed out it could be a tiny little bit difficult at first to recognize. Yet if I changed it in an attempt to depict clearer letters the logo looses its style - I mean its supposed to look as one whole graphic as opposed to a graphic with typed text near it. Cool Nyways, your logo looks good:) simple and clear with colors that match the style of the forum.

Great effort, but unusable for several reasons.

1. Oracle won't allow us to use the coffee cup in that manner.

2. Extremely difficult to read.

3. It won't scale.

A logo needs to be as recognizable at 30px as well as 300px.  Unfortunately, the logo you made won't work.  This is the principle reason we changed the original Java logo to the current version.  It scales and retains all of it's detail, making it consistent from use to use.

I do like Appel's logo and the GhostDuke from pjt33.  How to combine the two?

What about letting the O from JGO resemble a pacman hunting the GhostDuke?

Neat ideas coming up!

Maybe this is to be assumed, but before finalizing something like the logo from Appel, there should be a bit of kerning applied so it doesn't look like it reads: JAV-AGAMING.
[I see the kerning has been fixed above. Cool.]

DukeMan! Maybe the logo is chasing him? Maybe the logo (for animation) is made up of edible dots (==drinkable cups of coffee?).

I thought so too, so I've tweaking the kerning and re-uploaded.

Agree with Mickelukas. The above logo is by far my favourite.

why not the blue logo with the red nose ? Everything the same color looks very dull , specially the blue one . The blue one looks like you took the red one and clicked "Invert colors" in Ms Paint

There's no end to the variations that can be produced. "Red nose", "Black nose", "Smaller duke", "Different font". etc. I think I'll leave the drafts at their current state until it's decided we will use this, otherwise it's just going to be confusing to have 100 suggestions of the essentially same logo.

I think my drafts work nicely in print, t-shirts, etc. However, they are cartoonish, so I'm not sure if it fits for the look n' feel of these forums. Maybe drop shadow works best Smiley

The one with the text underneath might look better but to not take up too much space on the height when loading the page while still keeping the logo at a decent size this one will be better.

Maybe make the nose red but, as Appel said, there is no need to start discussing details before many people had their say. What about a poll?

Nice work! I have a mild preference for the gradients, though, in the original sketch. I understand this is a stylization. I just like gradients. (My contribution to the upcoming hundred suggestions.)

This family of logos is the best I've seen so far.  It captures the Java-ey feel and gamingness of this site.  Maybe if we used the blue and orange of the old logo it would be even better (instead of the pure red).

I love the logos on this page.  However, please make sure that you use JGO and not JavaGaming in the title.  Oracle is signing the domain backover to me but, because we are no longer an Oracle/Sun site, we can't use JavaGaming in the masthead.  Which, in my opinion, is better as we get to brand "JGO" for us in this community.  W00T!

Mine too. The lack of highlight makes it more HAL 9000 eye and less clown's nose - so a big win.
