Hi Joey, all,
replying to both of your mails, so please scroll down until the end...

to gather some more opinions I thought it would be a good idea to have a
poll somewhere else, so I asked people in a forum to cast their vote.
Although I don't know whether this was a good idea (not really
representative, game design forum, so people might be programmers) I thought
you might be interested in the results:
It's impossible to see the different alternatives, because at my
computer the background is nearly black.
Ii updated the image with a slightly lighter grey background, so you can
see the different alternatives, but keep the white text of the poll results.
Apparently noone likes the
too fancy ligatures. Most people also complained about the logo in general,
so I tried to explain why this is (and remains, for now) the logo of LibO.
If you're interested in the comments, too, I'll send you the link.
So... in the next days I'll make some final drafts and put up a voting page.
If you have some final ideas please tell me.
People seem to like the last alternative (with "f" bow bent towards the
"i" dot) as much as the original.
Even if this is far from being representative, I'd like to see a
finalized version of this proposal.
Could you improve this by moving the "i" nearer to the "f"? I don't
think that equal spacing for the dot between "f" and "i" looks best...
Perhaps a combination of your third an my proposal?

In your reply to my last mail I understood you in a way that you wanted to
work on a new proposal.
I added a third alternative (which I don't like very much). The logos on my
page are only drafts; if we decide on one of them, I'll spend more time on
it. At the moment I don't have another idea how to deal with the ligature -
do you? I'd be more than glad to try another one.
Like your poll members I like this proposal best, but it needs some more
tweaking (I mentioned above).
I don't think that there are so many alternatives to modify the two "f"
and the "i", so I don't have any other reliable alternative in mind.
But what we need to keep in mind: Changes being recognized by the average
user / viewer will more likely be postponed until a new major or minor
than modifications leading "only" to a more balanced, professional and
consistent visual impression.
+1, I agree.
In my eyes proposals (c) and (d) might fall in the "balanced" category,
while (a) and (b) would be more recognizable as modified details.
Who has the final word on that?
The SC, but they probably support a decision by the Design Team.
