So the competition for the logo completely fell through and I'm really getting annoyed with my horrible work up there at the top of the page, So I'm starting over from scratch with the intent to make a new logo for gamethreat, I am only aiming for compatibility for the Simple Black Theme(for now)

I will post here updates, and any ideas i have for the banner.

Anything anyone can provide such as Custom Fonts, Textures, Animations(transparent background) and drawings would be greatly helpful, Anything submitted must have been created by you 100% or you must have full rights to give said item to me.

Anyone who contributes will be credited properly.

I would like this thread to stay on topic, No flaming please, And do not complain about something vaguely, Highlight the area if necessary and post the image, If you have an idea or suggestion give a clear explanation, or example of your idea.

This will be progressing slow as i have several projects going right now.

I'll post an image as soon as something is worth posting.

Do you have any ideas as to which direction you will go with it? Like maybe a certain color scheme your are looking into. I know you said which theme your working with but I was just curious.

IMHO I suggest either the Diablo font (AvQuest (http://www.fontoo.com/Free-Fonts-A/Avquest-free-font-454.html)) or Dark Garden (http://darkgarden.sourceforge.net/). Also, it must be compatible with DarkVision :/ You can't even see links in SimpleBlack for ****s sakes.

I've been thinking Industrial, This is a site more or less based on the creation and distribution of hacks, Something involving coding would be nice, but has been way overdone in the past on a lot of sites.

I have the color scheme to work with so it's probably going to involve metal of some sort so i don't completely destroy the feel, But I'm going to try to get away from metal if i can on this one.

Personally i would prefer some Green or Blue, DT seems to like Red but I'm not just making this for him, I would not worry a great deal about anything past white to black right now as colors can be easily changed later on without disturbing the gray scale, as long as its one color.

So if anyone contributes anything that's more than one color try to make it white>color or black>color not red>blue yellow>green etc, It isn't hard to modify, but it is annoying.

Edit: Transparent>color also would be preferred.

PSD, PDN, GIF, PNG, formats preferred I'll update other formats i can use later.

Edit2: Any .GIF would be preferred if a working animated version and a layered version(or archive of layers) was included in their original format.

I'm probably going to create the letters on my own but I'm not above using a font if i find something that sparks an idea.

As far as the other skin, Technically it will be compatible, And perhaps if i complete something for simple-black i can most likely make some easy modifications for DarkVision so it fits with the color scheme.

If you guys were really serious you would hire (read: grovel/bribe) a couple of the guys from the Google logo team to contribute something. Those guys are ****ing amazing. The Pac-Man thing is ****ing godly.
