I'd like to see a clean logo of some kind. That said, I'm horrible with that sort of thing, so I can't offer much help.

All things considered, I'm fine with the site as is. A nice graphic would merely be an improvement to an already good thing :)

I like the way it is now (all text the same size) less than I liked it before (when "discussing..." was smaller than "awakenetwork")

Huh? The "same size" was just a blip for a minute or two while I messed with the CSS a bit. Are you still seeing it, because the "discussing..." bit is definitely smaller but now on the same line as the main title.

Also, because you and Colin stated a preference, I have done a simple tweak to change the colour of "awake". The colours won't be perfect, but they are free with my template so I just picked something. I agree with this, BTW, because remember when we were picking the name there was a brief discussion about "awaken" vs. "awake", and whether the "n" should serve double-duty so that it was pronounced "awaken-network".

Personally, I like this.

Yeah. It's good enough. We could make the N a third color, so it belongs to both words, if your color palette allows (picking a color halfway between the other two on the palette):

AWAKENETWORK

I like this idea. Can we try it, just to see what it looks like?

I don't think we want to entertain changing the name of the site. We have been using "awake", and if any of us were to, say, be interviewed by Vince for our enlightenment prowess and were constantly saying "awaken-network", then nobody would get the URL right. Based on the feedback and poll thus far, I think we are close and merely need to tweak the colour of the "discussing..." to make it more readable. Or, I might just nudge it up in size a bit.

I didn't even notice the spelling difference!

I like the idea of shading the "n" in the middle of the title, so as to tie the two words together in a way that flows.

I agree that changing the name of the site is not in our best interests.

Don't take this the wrong way but we just spent a few hundred bucks securing the .com version of our site name so no, we're not changing the name ;-)

I didn't suggest changing the name, only coloring the letter N, as a sort of play on "Awake/Awaken" -anyway.

My current preference is for the vampiric blood-dripping font please. LOL

No really, the last one, the neat and tidy italic script, is pleasant, professional and balanced.

The last one is the "I like it the way it is" version.

Um, that would be the previous last one ;-)

No, I think the previous (original) font was a slightly cartoony, soft italic. The one I liked was a crisper, less handwriting looking one. Small difference.

We could use Comic Sans! comicsansproject.tumblr.com/

Hi, just so you have a vote for almost every typeface, mine is for the top one.

I like it because it reminds me of a calligraphy brush strokes with its little whisps; not too formal, yet clear and crisp (and easily read), and not overused elsewhere. IMHO

:-)

The top one was what we had for the last few days, with a slightly lighter weight. The bottom one is a slightly more "fun" font (called "Bubblegum"), which I liked until Ona jinxed it with her "Comic Sans" comment.

We shouldn't take ourselves so seriously! Comic Sans in rainbow colors! Weeee!

But seriously, either one is fine with me, though I somewhat prefer the top one, being a serious sort of person. :P

I like the top graphic. It's looks clear and open to me, while the bottom one seems small and cramped.
