I have the artistic skills of Hellen Keller, but if I had a lick of talent, I'd make a mascot who was a bum in front of a keyboard and monitor, holding out his hat begging for pocket change.  [evil laugh].

what about something like a framed square of Matrix code (only with real code), and barring that, I tend to like GoDaddy.com's approach or the Budweiser Girls. They have nothing to do with coding, unless you count excellent genetic coding, and if nothing else, looks great on a cup. ;-)

I can see it now.  A TV commercial--mouser with a budweiser girl on each arm, each wearing a donationcoder.com babydoll t-shirt.  "So, ladies, what's your favorite website?"  and then, in unison, "donationcoder.com!"

My kinda commercial. mrgreen

if so don't think you'd get around the copyright.

i was thinking that it would be fun to have a new award logo that was like picture of cat holding up his paw - like showing 5 fingers for a 5 star award.  maybe a cats paw holding a globe smiley

it's not for me to blow my own trumpet but i'll do a few things in illustrator after the graphics review is done if no one submits anything in the meantime.

it might provide a jump start if nothing else.

if anyone wants to scribble some ideas down, scan them in, then upload them; i'll happily tidy them up in illustrator if they need it - if they're chosen for the mascot.

Why a cat?  It's supposed to be a DonationCoder.com mascot, not a mouser mascot.  I have zero artistic talent, but I know what makes sense, and something that goes along with coding seems to make sense.  An image of a keyboard with some coins scattered across it makes more sense to me than a cat.

I have always been impressed with the principles behind and the name and logo of the American Society for Quality progamme for schools, Koalaty Kids.  To my non American ears the US pronounciation of quality always sounded like koalaty.  I think it is a very clever name and a good mascot for this organisation.  Maybe we could dream up something similar.

maybe we need a pic of a cat hunched over the keyboard typing furiously smiley

in all seriousness - your point is valid wrt a LOGO - we could use a new one of those too,
but i was talking here about a mascot for fun stuff.

having the mascot part of the logo might be the best combo though, so you're point is not out of line.
im not at all fixed on the idea of a cat.. could be like a little robot.

anyone ever see the pictures in david ahl's famous "Basic Computer Games" (either new or old) - something like that might be fun, a happy computer on wheels or robot.

regarding logo, it would be nice if it captured the spirit of community idea - and not be so centered around the programmer.

Yeah, you're right--WTF was I thinking?  A keyboard for a mascot...

Let this be a warning to others:  Don't post if you've had less than 10 hours of sleep over the past 4 days.

But I still think the KB/coins would be a nifty logo.  smiley
