Hi Tachikoma, FYI:

Tachikoma was kind enough to upgrade the electrum.bytesized-hosting.com server already, could you try to connect to that one?

it looks like that server's working Smiley

Awesome, thanks for the update!

Amir recently changed the bitcoin logo used in Electrum with a 'noface' logo:

old logo : new logo :


I have previously announced that I will no longer take part in development, but I believe that such a change should involve a prior discussion with the community.

I find the new logo ugly and meaningless. what do you guys think?

I concur. Maybe we can design something specific for Electrum.

What the hell??  It's also an obvious reference to the japanese cineast Miyazaki:



I really wonder what genjix was thinking about, as this has no relation to bitcoin whatsoever.  I suspect it is a joke.

I think it's much better and more appropriate than a Guy Fawkes mask, but the context it's used still doesn't seem very relevant.

I will definitely NOT use the client with the new (awful) logo!

The word "electrum" describes an allow of gold and silver.

Then, why not start with the generic bitcoin logo, and give it a yellow-gray bicolor?

Maybe we can design something specific for Electrum.

my initial plan was to have a logo that would look like this:



 - this represents electrons orbiting atom nucleus
 - symbolizes the client-server architecture of Electrum
 - the nucleus could be replaced with a bitcoin coin (current logo).
 - colors: lightning, maybe pale blue or green like in the Tron movie.


(I never did it because I suck at drawing)

I put it back. Didn't realise no face would get so much hate.

Anyone curious about the reason:

http://spiritedaway.wikia.com/wiki/No-Face_%28Kaonashi%29

As a lonely creature who seeks attention from Chihiro after having developed an obsession for her kind heart, No-Face first appeared a very timid and soft-spoken spirit whose vocabulary consisted of grunts and moans as opposed to understandable words. Not knowing much about The Bathhouse or about other spirits in general, No-Face learned by example. Exposed to the crooked thoughts and greed of the workers, he quickly grew to encompass their personalities, hoping that his endeavor to be like those around Chihiro would eventually garner her affection for him, but ultimately bringing about the opposite effect.

...

With his assumed large amount of wealth No-Face became a sensation with the workers who constantly begged for tips from him. After witnessing Chihiro reject his offering of gold, No-Face sadly drops the gold onto the ground, forcing greedy workers to fight for a piece. Angered in assuming that a worker insulted him, No-Face swallows two more people as his true face is revealed to the fearful workers.

It's not hate (on my part), just a desire for it to have a unique and identifying symbol. when I think of Electrum, I think more in line with the image  Thomas describes than a reused cartoon character. I would be happy to donate some bitcoin to an artist that came up with something unique and "atomicly bitcoinish".

By the way Spirited Away is fantastic.

Fore a logo what about the same Bitcoin logo but with an E instead of a B?

The logo should really have a least some reference directly with Bitcoin, as it is a Bitcoin wallet.

The new Electrum team is very creative and enthusiastic but with ThomasV the project seemed a bit more "down-to-earth" to me.

The cartoon logo makes the client look like a kiddy game software.

As I said electrum is an allow of silver and gold, so I thought about something like that:



I'm not very good in image processing so I guess someone could make it look better, but you get the idea.

If you drop the B it's tough to get the link with bitcoins.

I suck at graphics, but hopefully this will serve as some inspiration for someone more graphically capable than me.
