Where "we contemplate our own navels" to decide how this forum should evolve. What features do we need? Who decides what we need?

My vote is the for the blue.jpg but would it be possible to have the colours a little bit brighter please when it is used as a logo.

Thanks for your efforts on this.

Not sure if this will work (inserting a picture) but I think these are the colours you need Chris for the blue.jpg. I can match any colour and give it a rgb value so that it can be reproduced.

on this screen/to my eyes that 'orange' one isn't anything like orange enough, it's too peach/pink. blue and orange are colour opposites and as such compliment each other well. (complement? i always get that wrong) I'd suggest ( if others agree) making that one more orangey
:P

Blue and Orange are indeed complementary colours:

Tried again with a different orange. AS you can see, possibly, I am using old fashioned methods of cut up bits of paper to make this. I have spent many hours trying with the two basic diagramming programmes I have, and have not achieved anything with technology. Would love to be able to, but cannot justify the cost of a good package.So once I have chosen my bits of coloured paper, scanned it all in, the complete thing becomes a jpg and I can't modify it.
Teiana, I have changed the orange, a really bright orange, but it still seems to be coming out rather pinky when I scan it.
I don't think I can justify spending anymore time on it, so I am afraid the attached must be my last offering. :)

i didn't even edit the colour to do this i just put it in a photo editing program and hit 'auto colour balance correct' and something else similarly, i forget what now.

anyway, not sure the backgrounds gone a bit dark but the orange looks better.

Thanks Chris!
It was a long and stony path I know but I think it was worth the effort.
I am out tonight but tomorrow I hope to have the logo on line (assuming you will let us use it :-) )
Have fun!

Want a £m for the copyright :lol: I wish. Yes of course you can use it, it's a privilege to this that I have made an impact in graphic design, 8-) even if it is only on something as 'insignificant' (only in the great big system of things) as The Systems Place.
