    While Zam will always have a home here at TDH and Zam fans will always be welcome, our new logo, which is much more simplistic in design and scope, will focus primarily on Boba's helmet as it falls in line with and best represents our board name. We hope this doesn't offend the dedicated fans of Zam and we hope you will continue to use TDH to make your amazing costumes.
    No offense at all... just a moment of concern, that's all.

    Guess we just have to wait for the unveiling now!

    Hmm, lemme guess.. I assume there won't be Jango's dent, just Boba's dent... LOL. Cause technically, Zam has an indented helmet So, I take it most of us will all be equally unrepresented 'cept for boba, mebbe, just like the old boards used to be? I haven't seen it yet, so I am wondering how correct my assumtion may be.

    It is important that our members understand that the new logo represents the board as a whole, not a specific group, much like the three circled mouse head silhouette represents Disney as a whole. There is not a silhouette of Goofy and Pluto and Donald and Minnie... all fall under the single mickey-shaped logo. Saying that "most of us will be equally unrepresented" is, not only incorrect, but a gross misunderstanding of the purpose of the logo. No, there will not be anything specifically representing Zam, or Jodo Kast, Durge, or the Dented Variants on the logo. In regard to Jango, we have added a slight twist to give him some representation, but that is not the point. While the logo is strongly boba based, it is the logo for the board and site as a whole. It doesn't mean that Zam or any of the dented variants are not welcome. Quite frankly, we are moving away from a logo that directly depicts each of the character because there may be room in TDH's future for MORE forums and MORE characters. However, we will not rebrand each time that happens and add the new character to the logo. We want a single logo that is timeless and unchanging. Something that is simple, scalable, easily recognizable, like the Nike swoosh or the McDonald's arches, and something that compliments the site name "The Dented Helmet." While the logo has yet to be finalized, I am extremely pleased with the progress that has been made and believe that most will be happy with it as well. Change is always uncomfortable and you can't please everyone, but once the new logo is in place, I believe most will see that it gives the board and site a much more professional look and feel and gives us a single image under which we can rally.

    WOW, a new change, and I still remember all the changes since I joined this boards on December 2002 (?), and completing my Boba v.1.0 in July 2003.

    I can't wait to see the new logo, and I have faith and believe "THE DENT" when he says about making the board live it's name properly for this boards.

    Of the recent changes, I like the chest display effect above the "thread" display.

    I thought the small bold graphic of the "dent" above the title was the logo (unless I'm mistaken. Apologies, but I don't log in much anymore due to hectic schedules). I personally think that is a great logo. Simple, bold and very unique. If this isn't the logo, I'm curious to see what the actual logo will be. Great website, too!!

    It was indeed a hard trigger to pull, especially knowing how much many of our members have come to love the angels logo. I can't tell you how pleased we are with the overwhelmingly positive response!

    Been a lurker on the forum for a while before joining and I have to say I love the new look.
    It really stands out from the other forums out there in that it has an entirely custom look, no prefab forum junk here!
    As for the logo I do like the angels logo but that isn't really unique, the new logo is and is easily identifiable as TDH.
    Ps. love the photowork on the frontpage!
