Yay - months of process and what do we get? The worst
result - the
logo that has the biggest technical problems in terms of reproduction
in other media. Its greyscale version is incredibly unclear because it
is far too busy.
You just doubled or tripled the cost of Wikimedia letterhead, folks,
so everyone who voted for it had better donate extra.
Plus it's horrible. No offence to anyone, the thing already won, so it's
not a matter of offending the author anymore, but that logo stinks big
time. If this is democracy in action, imagine running a country this way.
(Before y'all start with me, yes, I had a few logos in the competition
myself, and mine was obviously not chosen, but I would've been happy if
we chose the first runner-up, which is not mine either. That would've
been a logo, and a good one at that IMNSHO. The one we chose is neither
good, and not even a real logo. It's a coloured puzzle ball for Chrissake!)
