Why? If there are things you have to criticize... it's just about the logo smile! I personally like it, but I like the original one also wink.

Looks better now but I have still a problem with the long straight line.
Perhaps it is a question of the taste. smile

The pattern inside of the logo is random or should be a wave like on the UME logo?
Maybe the position is too high?

I like the long straight line, it gives the impression that MESS runnnns, which it actually does wink!

I have no idea, must wait for JacKc's answer... but I think it's not "random" at least smile.

And an alternate version specifically made to convince Anna smile :



EDIT: Oh, and the answer to the question above is this:

Personally, I like more Anna´s special version. smile
Another alternative would be to connect ME, cut, connect SS.
However, we need more feedback from the community here.

I'm happy with both.

I prefer the "anna's version" too (not that anybody asked). It seems more readable.
also, curious about a ME[Space]SS version.

EDIT : after fiddling with the logo, I think I'd like to see a "ME[space]S[space]S" version

EDIT 2 : a quick mockup (It's just a roughly tweaked version of JacKc's logo) of a M[Slanted space]E[space]S[space]S, with breaked sub-text. Not to be used as-is, it's just to see how it goes.
I like the look from JacKc but I have some doubt about monoblock readability (same goes for the old logo). But don't get me wrong, it's just my very own personal opinion.

Yeah, the Gregoire version just proves my point about the original UME logo with the spaces in it - it looks dreadful.

Can someone point me to an instance of the current Micko logo? I recall it looks way, way better than either JackC's or Gregoire's versions but I need it in front of me to verify smile

WRT UME, I think if you eliminated the "U" from JackC's version you'd have something. Starts with the M from MESS, ends with the E from MAME, so it's both symbolic and would look better.

is it this one, on the mess' wikipedia page :
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multi_Emulator_Super_System

By the way there is no "Gregoire version" it's just some test to prove my point, all the hard work was performed by JackC smile
