Point taken. Site being taken down now.

Just thought I'd try and make it a little funkier
If people rather the current design, then there's no point trying to change

Thanks for your honesty!

Subject: Re: [Firebird-general] Logo work continues

ok, here's my take on it:

1. i thought we already have a logo/mascot (the "bird")? so i assume
nig's project is about creating the small banner/button to be placed on
websites (the "Powered By" button).

2. i'd prefer having these elements in the button: a) the
red/orange/yellow colors; b) the logo/the bird itself; c) the official
typeface/font, since they are all associative of the logo/mascot itself.
nig's array of buttons don't seem to have any of these. what are the
reasoning behind blue-grayish background color, a different font, and no
mascot/logo anyway?

3. i personally don't like the words "Enterprise RDMBS" and "Storage
By". the second sounds kind of... sorry, silly to me. if i were the one
to make the button, i'd just say "Powered By Firebird".
