So, after all these years MSE has had the same icon and logo. I personally love flat style and I think MSE should adapt and change its logo. I suggest we modernize MSE's logo and change the font to Segoe UI Light and the icon to this one I created. Not only the logo, but maybe even the forums could have Segoe UI Light as the title font. It looks much more modern IMO.

Thoughts?

The problem with changing the font used in the program is that it would require a full rehash of the whole program, as far as I believe, and there are still only efforts to do just that. Consequently, changing our logo without having changed MSE's would be illogical.

I didn't suggest changing the font used in the program, I just suggested changing the icon of the program and the font of the forums.

Both of these changes seem relatively unnecessary in my opinion. They're just small things that have little impact on either the use of MSE or its forums.

Ok.

Changing the logo is hardly unnecessary; it should match the current MTG card face, which it hasn't done in 12 years.

If it hasn't matched in 12 years, why start now?

Online dictionaries abound. It's time to start using them.

Because Magic cards no longer use that frame and it could mislead users potential or otherwise as to MSE's capabilities.

Why should it stay stuck in the past?

It doesn't matter enough to change, IMHO.

Well, the thing is, the icon literally does nothing when it comes to the actual program.

There's still some difficulty in that the program can't have a different logo at the minute, meaning a new one could only be implemented on the forum and website, which means they'd be mismatched, and could be confusing.
