I'm reducing this to a simple binary vote. Poll closes in 48 hrs. Candidates are:
+1Where is Enzwell's submission? Are these really the only options we have? I remember seeing a variant with a keyhole for instance. Also, is it too late to have the original designer submit more variants? I must agree with patrolman - this seems rushed. Keep in mind that we are in different time zones as well.
I think we should allow more of the DRK community to catch up and get on this forum. Only 242 registered members so far. Let's not rush this so people start rebel against the winner at a later date.
Now I'm confused I think he posted those variations because you said that there was only the blue one. It's an idea, the designer of the logo can easily make those changes. Moreover, I don't talk about an elimination tournament on the contrary I'm telling you to keep all the color variations, they can be great e.g. for t-shirts.@Kai
Reason 1: I seriously doubt anyone wants an elimination tournament, which is the only fair way to conduct such a vote. It would take 1-2 weeks just to complete the polls, and in all likelihood the final would end up with these two up against each other.
Reason 2: A number of those colour schemes you linked to are not worth putting to vote. I'm not interested in adding noise to the discussion at this point.
If the majority of people disagree on point 1., I'm open to conducting an elimination tournament.
I think it's important to keep an official color scheme in order to keep the branding consistent and professional. You don't want the website blue, Reddit red and darkcointalk orange, for example. That not to say that people can't create unofficial color variations for t-shirts or whatever, but I don't think that's really the focus here.Now I'm confused I think he posted those variations because you said that there was only the blue one.

Well that's a reasonable argument. I just don't like cyan much.Personally I really like the lighter shade in the OP. The other kinds of blue are over-represented in the market, and this one looks fresh & modern to me.
Yeah, I mean I figured discussion of the full colour palette for the branding guide would come after logo selection. But there's no reason in principle why we can't talk about it now. I'll have a play with palettes and see what might look good with this particular blue.Well that's a reasonable argument. I just don't like cyan much.
But also... wrt voting on colors being a little premature, one color plus b&w isn't really much of a color scheme, as far as making a palette for websites and such.
What other colors or shades-of might go with "this blue? ..or this other blue?".
Anyway, just a thought. It would take some time to really work up some good palette sets. And I'm by no means a color theory expert.
