You're tempting me to delete my vote for the old logo..........I think i'm gonna, yes i am.
Alright. I think a fresh, new logo is exactly what TamaTalk needs - to be quite honest. The update on the entry page is attracting the right audience. Tamagotchi's are created for younger children. Ages 7 / 8 +. The logo we have now, while appealing, doesn't exactly define the cuteness, the energy, or the enthusiasm that Tamagotchi's have come to portray. Logo's are the first impression of a site, and most people looking for Tamagotchi information are probably ranging around 9 - 15 years old. Since that is the around the age where Tamagotchi's are more popular. Sure, we have younger children and older adults looking up information on Tamagotchi's, but the age range mentioned earlier is what Tamagotchi's are more geared towards. Therefor, by using the new logo, it shows people that we are a fun, cute, upbeat site. Which is what we are! Children may be put off by the logo, assuming that it's for older people - and won't even come to glance at TamaTalk, I remember that's what I did when I was younger. I had come across TamaTalk when I was in fourth or third grade, and I had seen the logo and assumed that it was for older people. However, I eventually went into the forums (when I was looking for information on Tamagotchi's a few months later) and was surprised to find such an age range of people ranging from 10 to 30! Seeing as how my initial assumption was that the site was more teenage +. So, I guess my point is that the newer logo wouldn't be attracting the wrong audience at all! In fact, we'd be bringing in the ages that the Tamagotchi's were intended for! Plus, many people are attracted to sites that not only are informative, but have a more updated logo, look, feel / layout. (:
That's just my two cents into the pool of opinions! haha (:
Im starting to agree with haleyhashats-children look at the lovely bright logo and say "wow" and when they actually come on they look at the real normal logo and they think its for older kids
