1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Posting again because the original disappeared.

    Canadian National Rail. The logo is nearly 50 years old now and looks just as fresh.

    I don't approve of arms that weren't issued by a monarch. Or at least a head of state.

    Agreed. Super cliche. Seals are better.

    I like the second one, but I wish they'd done without the apron.

    It's ironic that the most aesthetically pleasing flags are those of our enemies. It's not as if the Nazis can take credit for designing that emblem, as we all know its an ancient Buddhist symbol, but regardless the flag is incredibly well-designed.

    Actually, the buddhists didn't invent it. I've seen it on sealings dated to EH II found at the site of Lerna. EH (early helladic) II is about halfway between 2000-3000BC, though we don't know precise dates. It's been found in other areas as well, but i haven't studied those.

    Reebok's are terrible. They need to start from scratch.

    ^ I cannot understand companies who find it "hip" and "cool" to abbreviate their own name.

    I like Alfa Romeo's. I don't see anything wrong with Forbes and Playstation 3.

    Playstation 3.

    It's too generic. It looks like the Spiderman 3 font. You also have to size it up with it's predecessors, which were excellent.

    Worst in my opinion..

    It looks like you mislabeled your categories, because your "Best" logos are mostly a potpourri of ugly polychromatic names on white backgrounds while your "Worst" logos are clean, exudes luxury and aesthetically pleasing. In general, anyway.

    Though I'm going to totally contradict myself and say I like the palm logo:

    It's a happy orange!
