Subject Re: [BLOG Post Proposal] Logo Contest Update
Date Fri, 27 Jan 2012 17:27:38 GMT
Here's an updated proposal. All links will be direct links within the
post rather than the [1][2][...] format. I will post shortly if I get
enough lazy consensus.

- Doug

The logo contest was a major milestone for our project. The community
and PPMC members came together and voted on a logo, and were in-sync
for the entire ride. The community and PPMC members both chose
Adrian's (#42)[1], via Tomasz Maciag with Fuse Collective, and
Julien's (#49)[2] design as the top choices in the first round. This
was a clear sign that the community and PPMC are in-sync. This contest
has shown how thriving and active this community is, and suggests it
will continue to be. Not only has this contest been evidence of the
cohesion of the community as a unit, but the sheer amount of topics
and active community members engaging in these discussions have made
this a great project to be a part of.

There a lot of awesome discussions going on, and some of those
discussions are even a little bit difficult, but they are still
incredibly productive. You can view the discussions on the flex-dev
mailing list archives[3]. While Adrian's[1] design came out on top in
the final round, Julien's[2] took the number one spot with the
community for the first round. A very good accomplishment, I must say.

The total number of submissions we received was astonishing. The
contest received a total of 52 submissions. While some designers
submitted multiple logo's, most of the submissions were from unique

In the first round of voting we, received a total of 129 unique votes,
with 22 of those from PPMC members. The voting process was to
distribute up to 5 points between at least 2 logos. In the first
round, Julien's[2] design received a total of 106.5 points, and
Adrian's[1] design received a total of 99.5 points, with third place
taken by Alberto Garcia Ruiz (#40)[4] with 65 points. The PPMC members
gave 31 points to Adrian's[1], and 23 points to Julien's[2]. The
complete stats for the first round can be found here[5].

In the second round of voting, we received a total of 126 unique
votes, with 21 of those from PPMC members. In this round, it was a
simple +1 vote for the logo of choice. Adrian's[1] design came out on
top in the second round with a total of 77 votes, while Julien's[2]
design had 49 votes. The PPMC members also favored Adrian's design[1]
with 16 votes, while Julien's[2] design received 5 votes from PPMC
members. The complete stats for the second, and final, round of voting
can be found here[6]. You can also find this on the contest page

Now that the contest has wrapped up, the next step is to potentially
make some small tweaks to the logo. Some discussion has been made
regarding the color of the logo, and even the placement of the word
"apache" in the logo. If you subscribe to the flex-dev mailing
list[3], you can follow along as these developments unfold.

These are some exciting times for Apache Flex, and I look forward to
being a part of this project. In addition, everyone involved should be
proud and excited to be part of this project and its future.
