NEW Official Forum Logo

Unread post by SANParks »

Dear Forumites,

Right on the 8th Birthday of the forums, it gives me an immense pleasure to announce the winner of the Forum Logo competition!

The winning design is Design 3 and the designer of the logo is Leopard Paws. Congratulations! :clap:

Image

It has been a forum dream for many years to have our very own forum logo and this dream has finally come true!

Choosing the logo was a challenging task due to the amount and quality of the entries received and we would like to thank each and everyone who submitted a design; all who took the trouble to review and comment on the designs; and to all that voted for the final 5 designs!

Tremendous amount of work was done by the Dyna'mites team lead by Lion Queen in this process:

Heksie
Picnic
Cheetah2111
PetraJ

To each and everyone of you - THANK YOU from SANParks! :k :gflower:

Many people said it would never happen ...
Is Rooies still alive and well? :twisted: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Much credit must go to Dinkybird. She believed in the potential for a team of Mites to make a success out of something which was a failure in the past :clap: She put together the DynaMites, gave us some reading on previous logo project attempt, and gave us the freedom to decide how best to go about this fresh start. Dinks a Links gave us lots of freedom, yet she was there to provide much needed advice 8) Dinks was a behind the scenes legend! As is almost always the case. We can't nominate you for Kudu horns or forum awards :lol: But I say thanks for facilitating the project and softly guiding it towards success :clap: Sorry for my fiery tongue a couple of times :redface: Thanks to Bert for taking over the Sanparks side when Dinks was out of town :thumbs_up:

Thanks to Lion Queen! :clap: :clap: :clap: Without your skill of administration it would never have gotten anywhere further than the exploseives pub :lol:

Thanks to Heksie who essentially kicked the whole thing off :clap: And to Petra for a cool head to the planning :clap: Thanks Picnic for your dedication and enthusiasm :clap: And we do not forget P@m. She loved the forums, and I'm sure she will be proud upstairs to know we saw this one through to completion :clap:

Well done to Leopard Paws for a stunning logo :clap:

Thanks to all the Mites! Submitting logos, suggestions, and comments :clap:

Please forgive me for such a long post :lol:
