For myself, i tend to like more stylized logos. Like this. If we had a stylized logo/badge/emblem of the one C_A submitted, i would vote for it.


I'm with Greenman on this one. The X and O may be a bit too simple. He kind of looks like he's holding a piece of tubing.

G-man, do another one!

Hey, even though I'm new I thought I might weigh in if that's alright with everyone. I like the idea of coming together under an organization or club name. Though I think "International Slinging Federation" might be a bit grandiose unless it's for an organized competitive sport (which I'm all for, coming from a competitive shooting background, but I know not everyone would agree) - and maybe should be reserved for such a case.  Just my thought.

But I've attached a few roughs for iconography - inspired by the Olympic pictographs.  These wouldn't be suitable for an official organization logo, but might work for a sport icon.  Maybe (probably) I will work on an idea for a more official logo a little later.

Please keep in mind that I'm currently at work and only had five minutes to get these roughs out - so they are basic and rough  Smiley

Let me know what you think!  Smiley



The more I look at these the better I like them and the concept. They'd look very cool on a shirt or hat or slinger's pouch or backpack. Gold lapel pins, tatoo, letterhead, key ring... you could incorporate them into any number of items. This is iconic and I'd like to see you whip up some other ideas along this line feldmac.

I'll fix up the image tomorrow night. However, for the meantime we definitely should decide if we are the INTERNATIONAL SLINGING FEDERATION or INTERNATIONAL SLINGING COMMUNITY.

I like the later. Perhaps a poll is needed.

I like the International Slinging Federation, aka ISF.

"ISF" is the acronym for "Impôt de Solidarité sur la Fortune" in France, it roughly translate as... Solidarity Tax on [over]Wealth.
If you earn a lot more than "way too much for it to stay decent" money, you have an additional tax, for "social justice" in theory Wink
(Now, most of our North American friends won't vote for this acronym Tongue)

Probably wouldn't hurt at all to do a poll on this one.  However I think I would be way overextending my Demi-Mod powers to launch it here.  I think that since C_A is the overall admin, he should have the honor of controlling a poll that impacts us all like this does..

ISF - sounds very grand, but

Federation
• an organization or group within which smaller divisions have some degree of internal autonomy : [in names ] the best tag team in the World Wrestling Federation.

You might form a federation from organisations, but not from individuals. Currently there don't seem to be these smaller organisations to federate.

Sorry I've been out of it for the last little while - I'm under some tight deadlines at work and will be up through next week. But I'm glad you like the icons Smiley once I get through this crunch I'll work on refinement and more drafts for icons. And once we come under one official banner I'll have a hand at an official type logo as well.

As for the name, I DO think a poll would be a good idea. I agree with wanderers' post- Federation sounds nice but I don't think it's accurate for what the group is. Legacy sounds cool, but I think Association or Community is most accurate for what this group is at this point.

But I'm just one of the new guys, so take it for what it's worth  Wink

I agree with Wanderer, Federation isn't really fitting considering we only have a few members on the site who belong to different slinging organizations or hobbyists. And that doesn't exactly mean we are federated with them by any means. However:

International Slinging Community -
Slinging.org is a community, whether a user logs in once a day, once a month, or once every few years. I like the associated meanings behind the word 'community' as it includes all of us, has a positive warmth and brings us all together as friends and family.
