Hello codeforces!

I'm sure you all noticed the new logo by now. Not that this one is bad, but I think that the old logo was better. It just doesn't feel the same anymore. Is this a temporary change? I really wish to see the old one back!

      Yeah, it seems that they can't decide which one is better. We should really have an option to vote for the logo, though I really like both of them and wouldn't know which one to choose

        Old one suits the whole website better. In order to fit the new logo better we should rebuild the whole brand and make it more 'modern' and 'simplistic' with a completely different color scheme and what not.

        A similar example would be old Reddit vs new Reddit design. But that can make the whole page much more unusable, just like what happened to TopCoder eith the redesign.

        In my opinion stick with the current one or make minor changes (colors, corners, fonts) but don't overdo it in order to fit the new logo.

At least they should have had some sort of voting or something that lets the community have their say in the change, it is years that CodeForces had that branding, and changing it all of a sudden does not seem appropriate. Also, the new logo should be somewhat catchy and colorful rather than those unamusing colors:p
