Hi all,

the Haiku admins have talked a bit on the subject of the HAIKU COMPATIBLE badge logos. We think that a full blown vote like the one for the Haiku icon set style, is bit overkill. From the feedback given here, it looks like everybody would be ok if we made the logos which I designed (3c, 5c, 5d <http://www.yellowbites.com/stuff/index.html>) the official HAIKU COMPATIBLE badge logos. So we would have a colored one, a dark on light one and a light on dark one. I am only aware of Austin, Meanwhile and Thom having designed other logo propositions. At least Austin expressed that he liked my logos as well. It would be nice to know from Meanwhile and Thom what they tink/feel.

So how should we proceed? Like I said, we think a vote is a bit too much for this, since we appear to have logos which everyone would be fine with. But I don't want to rule out a vote if that is what you want. Plus I don't want to rule out other people presenting nicer logos yet. So I propose to do the

We set a deadline (Wednesday June 13th), so that you have two weeks to:

* design more logos


* write to either this list (or to me in private if you like) that you
  would really like to see a vote on all known logos.

So in two weeks, if people expressed that they would really like a vote, then we have one. If we have more logos by then, two things should happen: Either these logos are clearly (judging by the feedback here) nicer then what we have (then we take those instead), or we think a vote makes sense.

Otherwise we just take what we have.

Please note that I am perfectly aware that it is a bit flaky that I am the one writing this email, seeing I designed the logos which would be used
without a vote. On the other side, I think we should get a healthier
athomsphere into our open discussions (based on the trust that what people argue is with the best intentions for the project), and, like that Google Tech Talk showed, if something can be decided without a vote, then that's an
indicator of a healthier system. From my perspective, I'm basing this
proposition on the feedback for all the presented logos.

Lastly, please keep in mind that it isn't impossible to update our logos after we have an "official" one (many companies/projects have done this, or created additional ones). And the design of such logos is not such a huge
task as the design of the entire icon set.

If you still think we should simply have a vote, then please speak up and
that's no problem!
