Why the name

This name seems pretty lame. Skulltag was way cooler. Also the staff looks even worse than on Skulltag

Things are going way better than they could with SkullTag, and sadly we can't use that name. Everything hopefully will go along smoothly. What brings you here? If you would like to make any suggestions we're open to listening.

The name was chosen as the end-all by Torr because we were tired of throwing around discussions about the name. We've been talking about it for well over a week now. As for your second concern, I have no idea what that means.

Maybe it's just the fact that he wasn't in the group of people that were supposed to be testing the forum.

Be glad you're part of that group or I'd disappear you.

Oh yes.

i'm the only one here who thinks that Zandronum logo has an amazingly awfull look ever possible? That perspective volume, font, gradient...
I'm so rellying that you will allow the community contest on best logo or something.

Right now, the logo depends on the theme. The default theme is currently "Smoky Tokyo", and has the jagged scifi/fantasy/80s logo, but you can switch your theme to another one such as Space Green/Blue, and they show a different logo.
I like the Alternate Translucent variants of Green/Blue, they are similar to the default theme's look without making everything too flat, and you might like them because they have a different logo.

Here's the thread about the logos/banners, as well as a poll: http://zandronum.com/forum/showthread.php?tid=54

To change themes you can go to your User Control Panel, the Edit Options area has it near the bottom of the page: http://zandronum.com/forum/usercp.php?action=options

We might also be getting a new logo in the near future, a few different staff members have shown interest in doing a more professional logo.

I did not mean to hurt anyone, just our tastes are different.

S'cool.

Technically this thread was supposed to be closed/archived after the forum went public(thread starter was not part of the private forum test team), so I'll take care of that now.

Discussion of the logo/banner can be directed to the banner thread, and staff discussion of the name can be found in the name thoughts thread, though know that the name is sticking for the time being.
