Well I am sure you are a professional 'waiter' by now after the wait here and must be pretty blue in the face by now ... promise, just a little bit longer. And not a month, days. Promise :D

Thanks DB, understood; but i am rather sad that it is no longer a Forum Logo as I think more people would have used it than use the yellow ribbons.

Thing is a lot of the facebook community are actually registered here, and use yellow ribbons too. I have stopped and greeted many in Kruger myself and found them feeling that they are in fact part of the forums too.

There are a great many folk who read but do not post - for various reasons. Some are just shy. And I do understand that. We cannot exclude them.

And the way social media is expanding, and the speed that it is, it is drawing the various mediums closer into 'one'. It is so easy to toggle between them now on either a pc, a smartphone or tablet.

There will be nothing stopping anyone from a facebook group joining the forums to buy a forum only logo article anyway - so we might as well make it one for online fans. We cannot prescribe who is going to buy the items.

Thanks DinkyBird! Looking forward to see what the logo looks like with the Kudu kop! :dance: :dance:

Thanks DB for the update. Increasing the scope makes sense, as we really do enjoy a false sense of exclusivity. The more the merrier. :)

Some feedback from my side...........

I've asked for the final changes to the logo and as soon as I receive it I'll let you know!! :thumbs_up:

Having one logo for all the online fans I think is a great idea. As DB said with technology moving so fast!!

Hi ruud,

We have a few 'mites and SANParks PR that took leave and only wait for them to be back in the saddle before the final touches to the logo will be done :thumbs_up:.

Any chance that this will be finalised before we leave for |Kruger (End May)?

Forum logo approved

Rome wasn't built in a day.
something that you say which means that it takes a long time to do an important job 'Sometimes it feels like we've spent all our lives decorating this house.' 'Well, Rome wasn't built in a day.'

It feels like we have spent years and years (and we have) working on this logo. This has been a long, long process and it has taken a lot of work. I have no doubt we will reap the rewards of the effort and consideration and time that has gone into the process.

We have come a very long way. Posts dating back to 2008, and even before, illustrate the journey to a forum logo, and today, we can proudly boast a logo that includes the Kudu Kop.

Lion Queen - you have put in so much work, and no matter what you have been asked to do, and no matter how busy you have been, you have excuted the request with a smile and efficiently.

Leopard Paws - this is your 'baby'. Thank you for sharing your talent and input along the way.

Super Mongoose - I think you must have redrawn this logo at least 100 times. Thank you for your patience with us, and all your hard work and advice.

To the rest of the team, all as important, who have assisted us get to where we are, deep gratitude for your enthusiasm, work and input:

Bush Baptist

Moderators

And to SANParks, to all those involved along the way, thank you.

Now for the next stage - deciding what merchandise to sell that will display the logo - ideas most welcome :D

I can actually vouch that Rome wasn't build in one day!! :lol: :lol: Neither in one year!!! :whistle:

I'm so extremely proud that the logo has been approved and that we can now enter the next phase! :dance:

To all the team members that helped out so much and to all those who initially send in logos a huge huge thank you :gflower:

Dinky Bird doesn't mention herself, but she had to cope with my numerous calls day and night! Thank you for never getting impatient and that you kept faith that we'll get the logo finalized! :gflower:
