hello eric,
thank you. i'm glad you like it. i'll look at these smaller icons. they need some adjustments when resized down. then i'll update this upload.
speaking about the other icons and wizard images i'm not sure when i'll get some time to play with it so i'm not promising anything... :) - Oct 22 2003

i liked much more when the left_ptr(?) was animated. It was good improvement because it was very easy to find the cursor on the screen. i know someone told you it's distracting to have the cursor animated but not for me ;)
couldn't it be possible to have there two versions maintained? animated and not animated cursor? - Jul 02 2003

why should i create and post new logotype, when i like the current one by root66? isn't it nonsense? ;)
ok, now this is obsolete after reading your reply at kde-www list and posts at the end of the comments here... - Apr 16 2003
this logo contest. really. what's wrong with the actual logotype which is the part of new kde.org layout by root66? i like it as it is. you didn't get the (xcf?) sources?

btw i must say, all these entries i've seen until now are worse than the actual logo. - Apr 14 2003

i've simply changed the line with default kde font setting in ~/.kderc to font=-*-tahoma-*-*-*-*-11-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-2
(it means to use tahoma font at 11 pixel size and i'm czech, so i use iso8859-2)
change it to yours (hint: see e.g. xfontsel) and it works great with both KDE and Geramik too! - Nov 18 2002

you (and matthias) are maybe right about the tradition how icon should look (consistent shape, no holes in it, etc.) but if i would change it the whole original idea would gone and the icon will have no symbolisation as i created it:
my explanation of the icon (why it looks how it looks) is:
- four marbles represents four different IM systems (no matter which ones) = Kopete is multiprotocol chat klient
- these marbles also represents four users/heads "sitting" together (but still not so close in fact) and chatting about something = Kopete is multiuser chat client
- one marble (user head) says something (we know what ;)) in typo inside the comic bubble = Kopete uses text to chat/send messages and emoticons
- in addition to that all: when you look on the whole icon forgetting what it really shows (close your eyes a bit) you can find this:
when you connect these marbles by a virtual line (upperleft->bottomleft, then following the direction of bottom bubble shape right up to upperright red and one line from the center by the bubble-tail to bottomright blue, imagine they compose a letter "K" = stands for Kopete

i hope this explains why i don't want to destroy the composition...

hi,
i don't understand. didn't you read the description?
click the third thumbnail. it's 16x16 icon and it's readable imho.
there's no need for smaller icon afaik...
but i accept it can be still adjusted to fit the upcoming crystal icons (soften shadows, etc.) - Sep 24 2002

>I don't think so. The Idea of a >Logo is the main part not a >'original' Font. The Font must >only fit to the rest of the page, >so that all together gives one >whole thing.

good logo doesn't need the textual information at all or it mustn't be so big in size as yours.
smaller "artist.kde.org" made with good loooking font would be better...

>Okay yes too expected, whats >bad with that? I think you >better have a Logo that is >expected how you'd say, a >Logo that is understandable >for the user, then having no >Logo.

again, good logotype should be original, match the idea of "business" and be rememberable at first sight ;)

>Where is a Logo in Your >Design?

it's the "K" made of connected dots concept with pencil on it. these dots resembles together a "star constellation". still thinking about the final look and feel. i was thinking about filling each/some dot of the logo with a color (palette-like) or made one more line connecting dots to add "A" for Artist
anyway i think each theme can have different logotype as seen on various skinning sites... kde artist is no trade mark (it's the KDE logo or KDE mascot for this here) so we don't worry about it... ;)

>And if it really exists, is it >really (well) founded?

maybe yes, maybe not, but nobody asked about this except you... :o)

>These colouredshapes are >pixels, that show that kdeartists >are bit different from normal >artists, because they work only >with pixels ( and vectors :P).

i don't think so. kde artist can work today with whatever he/she wants...

>You have two different >navigation Bars in you design, >and that is what you call a >logical structure?

i think yes, my concept is different. the top bar is to reach quick and easy the main section you want (maybe i forgot some). the left menu is a submenu of the main section you choosed.
the whole layout is optimized for size and for any browser and still good looking...
there should be no barriers for anyone at kde sites, anyone can be "KDE artist" even he/she is blind.

>I have one section for New >Things News Featured artist >and new tools, and i have the >other things in another section.

yes, you have got another concept of menus which i respect :)

>different Layers of photos with >low opacity. That is very >difficult to do in html and it >needs much bandwidth for the >user.

it's just a subject of layout u choose to prefer. of course i will optimize the graphics (e.g. cca 3KB for the background is acceptable) as much as possible and i know how to do it in html too, don't worry ;)
if it'll be so high for bandwidth i can simply switch it off in css and the layout can live without it on... no problem :p

cheers, luci - Sep 24 2002
looks more finished now... :)
still don't like the font in logo (imho worse choice than the previous verdana) and these "pixels" really don't fit to the palette, don't you feel it so? - Sep 24 2002
hi,
here's my opinion...
what i like:
- the paintbrush shape (can i use it for something at artist.kde.org?)
- the colours

what i don't like:
- the textual logo "artist" (verdana is too common to be an original logotype)
- palette or paintbrush is so common/expected for an artist site logo
- the cubical coloured shapes really don't fit the oval palette shape (these "drawed by hand" are better)
- the webpage layout is just "glued by eye", no logical structure, elements don't fit together - Sep 23 2002

yes, u are right about this. thank you.
personally i like the grayscale theme most (and the orange/red-grey one if there should be some color) but i wanted to listen and hear the users/visitors opinion and i see someone does need it colourful...
we'll see in few days the results but i'm almost sure it'll be the grayscale one as default and the others as optional choices... - Sep 23 2002

could u point me to that one u liked most?
btw: there will be the color chooser option i mentioned above and don't worry, orange will be there too ;)
how i see, now we have to vote which colour scheme should be the default. what do u think about it? is it possible to make a poll here at kde-look.org?
options could be:
- grayscale
- yellow
- red
- orange
- blue
- green
- other
- i don't care
- Sep 20 2002
yes, i expected someone will ask such a question :)
i made it in b&w shades only, because there was almost a flame war in kde-artists mailing list about the "which colors we like to have in default design each other" ;) so i decided to let user choose his/her favorite color scheme. maybe the whole site could use various themes or be themeable, but this is a secondary case...
now we speak about the default look and feel. - Sep 20 2002
