I can confirm that - none of the editors of the Polish Wiktionary like the new logo or the
idea of changing it.
Also, who can tell, perhaps in half a year someone else will start another vote on meta
and we'll have to change the logo again... and again...

Another thing that was really special was that people were told that
during the vote people were told that the logo would be implemented

this. Nobody has, apparently nobody cares. It was also my impression was
that it was not something that was popular among the Wiktionary communities.
I do not think the best logo won so I have yet another reason why I do
not bother about the implementation of this logo.

the Wiktionary communities who decide, isn't it?
