    @Mark Mason given the importance and engagement on all of this, would it not be worth you guys doing an interview with both O+M and T&C? Let each of them put their case and their work forward. I think it will help the community understand how they arrived at their logos and what their respective thoughts/perspectives are on brand development as a whole. IMO it should come straight from the creators mouths themselves. This would give MNO's valuable information from which they can make a more informed decision.

    Update of my slight tweak to the current logo... (advocating staying with what we have)
    Refined, cleaned up, slightly more rounded, very slightly thinner, rounded corners all matched.

    Q: Because it's already paid for, the DAO will own the O&M logo even if it loses, right?
    So we could still use it as an option/secondary?

    Am I the only one that sees O&M's version as being a D on top and what could be a C on the bottom (though the one on the bottom could be rounded out more to be clearly a C)? It also screams blockchain. (everyone will soon know what a blockchain is)
    It's an actual logo and not just a letter or word. Imo a logo should stand out and have clever details that nod towards what it is (not explicitly)
    Our current logo has this with its play on the - and the D looking like a C if it were flipped.

    I Like the D but it just doesn't scream logo to me. I don't see a reason why O&M can't use our current D in the name under the logo.

    That said, I don't think we should "settle" for something we don't like (we already like what we have).. It's either a clear winner or nothing imo..

    Dear masternodes owners,

    Dash is now the 13th coin in coinmarketcap. Some time ago @amanda_b_johnson said that she only cares for the first 12 coins. So, what are you going to do now, Amanda? Despite this downfall, the masternodes keep talking for the unimportant subject of the visual identity...Vanity! Not only they talk, but even worst they also vote ([1], [2]), as if they have voted for all the rest important governance questions, and only the visual identity is left. The ultimate stupidity of the dash masternode owners, revealed.

    Could you please reduce or extinguish the masternode's collateral fee, in hope that the new masternodes that will arrive will be smarter than the current ones?

    Yours truly,​
    Demo, the infidel DASH slave.​

    P.S.
    Dont take coinmarketcap seriously! They denominate in USD and, as everybody knows, USD is a scam coin similar to PTR. So I tried to denominate in BTC and I discovered that coinmarketcap reports wrong! They report that the whole cryptocurrency market capitalization (denominated in BTC) overflows the total number of bitcoins!!!!

    There are only 17 millions BTC, but the total market Cap is reported to exceed 38 millions BTC!!!
    If BTC is my base measure, how is that ever possible?:mad:

    Interesting, reading through all these reactions. I can hardly add anything to it, most things that I wanted to say have been said by others, sometimes even in the exact words!
    I quite like the current logo, but that is my personal nerdy crypto opinion. We have to look at what would convince average Joe, and the O&M logo seems to be doing that best.
    Seeing the T&C logo was a slap in the face for me and it has not gotten much better over time. It is the current logo, but castrated. It has lost its strength, it is neither a he a she or an it, or perhaps a combination, a s-he-it. It is what the Thai here refer to as ktoey. If you really want to keep that D, keep the current one, the strong one, the fast one, the one that makes a statement.
    I also like some of the designs of the people here, though not the Hillary-one... too much illuminati for my taste. (sorry Mark ;) )

    Just to add some creativity. I Like what GrandMasterDash has done, it is just that the D and C 'hang around' there. Why not straighten it out, make it look like they know where to go....

    Goes to show there's only so much you can do with link-type logos. I think we need a new direction and avoid these link-type logos.

    @TanteStefana Oh... we can do everything we want :)
    But I think as soon as we are going back to that one, mainstream adoption is going bye bye :)

    @ JOL Isn't that just a on/off button?
    The video that Triptolemoose posted helped me in my acceptance process of the T&C logo.
    But.... both have been rejected, so what happens now?
    Back to the drawing board? Or just continue using what we have?

    This was a special case. This vote didn't require a supermajority to win. It was a simple preference vote, which ever logo wins with more Yes vs No votes, as long as the network had 20% participation (~960 MN).

    Unless some votes change in the next 10 minutes, Tharp & Clark have won the vote by a 250+ lead and satisfied the 20% MN participation requirement.

    Congratulations Tharp & Clark, and thanks to the all the community members who took the time to participate in discussions and vote.

    Degratulations for getting paid when the no votes for both proposals were ignored.

    No votes were not ignored. They helped make up the 20% minimum participation requirement.

    Well said, My Fair Lady! Thank you for providing leadership in this crucial matter.


    Please don't make this into an emotional/nationalistic Brexit debate. Let's stay calm and let the Masternode votes (in accordance with Core Group guidance) decide.

    You should disclose your preference being the result of obsessively shopping the old, outdated Dash logo onto a million pieces of clip art, something nobody told/asked/wanted you to do.

    @GrandMasterDash you need to calm the hell down and get a grip. Nobody wants to watch your negativity and hysteria melt down into a full blown tantrum complete with threats to rage quit.

    Amanda has provided the thought leadership we needed to rally around our new T&C logo.

    All you have to do is follow her lead, or shut up and get out of our way. Pick one and stop your bitching and pouting ASAP.

    Dash used to be Darkcoin until Evan decided it would be rebranded, so you can't really use the excuse that you didn't know another rebranding was likely to follow the Xcoin/Darkcoin precedents.

    You signed up for Dash's DGBB and are free to leave at anytime if the Masternode votes and Core Group governance hurt your precious little feelings.

    Don't stick around here loitering while spreading FUD and making our community toxic; just leave if you don't like the way our DAO and Core Group are running things.

    I originally leaned toward the O&M logo. But I didn't dislike the T&C logo. Upon further reflection, and reading T&C's thought process, I will happily embrace it.
