I like the idea of a bird dropping a coin, instead of an "O" (and agree both bird and coin could benefit from more experimentation).  Two suggestions, though:

1.  Have the "O" that is being replaced be in "com," not in "donationcoder," because it is hard to tell what the word is (for those unfortunates who aren't already familiar with the word).

oops.  Sad   Here's the second point.  Coin should be generic (but still recognizable as a coin Wink, not just a dollar sign, don't you think?

Right, *I* read DONATIONS @ DER.com, too.

Maybe, if it must be lik this, the coin could stand for the DOT <?>

No, that's the reason why I said it should say DonationCoder instead of DONATIONCODER.

i like the top one (thought i worry the lines are two thin for good printing on a tshirt,etc.)

an idea: what if a bird was sitting on the bottom upward curve of the C, holding a coin and looking down?

How about a screen saver (you may be able to click on it or right click and save it - it depends on your browser).

To try it out, download the file, right click on it and choose install. The screensaver dialogue in Display Properties should appear with the screen saver selected just click OK. In not put you mouse on a blank area of the desktop, right click and choose Properties and select the screen saver tab. You should find it in the list under DCScreenSaver. These instructions are for Windows XP other versions should work similarly.

Note if you change screensaver it disappears form the list again, if you want it permanently available copy the file to the C:\Windows\System32 folder, right click install from there, and then it should be permanently available.

If you just want to preview it just double click the file.

just a few quick ideas.

if anyone wants to see them done properly with vector graphics then i'll do them later (maybe tomorrow).

any suggestions for variations or improvements?

top one is a stash of cash morfing into binary code.

middle one is a bird holding a coin with a cat coding in front of a monitor - monitor can have something more appropriate on the screen.

bottom one is sort of like a bird holding a coin hovering above binary code.

of course, i've mostly just added to the ideas that were already mentioned above.

So far I must say I like mouser's idea of the bird on the lower part of the C in DC.  That would look pretty cool.  You could make the letters thicker for printing.

I like the last one - just a bit afraid, as mentioned earlier, the lines are a bit too thin...

Btw, for the banner on the site, I think it would be a lovely idea to use the "code morphin into cash" sketch for something - it has a real nice look to it, as well as being a pretty decent idea.

Here are a couple of stabs at the animated money/binary strip ...

I perhaps need fewer, larger coins and slow it down a bit. Trouble is slowing it down needs more frames which means bigger filesize.

I also though as the Money wiped along it could generate DonationCoder.com behind it ???

Not trying to nick people's ideas just thought I'd have a quick stab - if anyone wants the PhotoShop PSD file to play with I can let them have it. The animation was made in Adobe ImageReady 7.

i think that nudone's bird with a coin would make a good donationcoder.com mascot/logo.

(note the idea for a bird with a coin came from the picture skrommel found here: http://www.donationcoders.com, i'm not sure where he found that clipart from).
