    The BL Banner Poll

    CLARIFICATION

    A text-only banner: What it says
    An image-and-text-banner: Something like we have now, but with TM characters. Probably rotating
    A new BL-tan: Something like we have now, but with a new character designed by a volunteering fanartist
    Old BL-tan but different picture: Something like we have now with a better drawn BL-tan
    Keep the current one: Duh.

    The old one's gone. I don't want more useless debates and bitching, the poll was created to prevent that.

    This... Isn't what I was trying to make happen though D:

    For the record, this is the post I was going to post:
    I was the one saying you should embrace it and make it your own. A redesign sums that up well.


    But no, god no, don't make another thread.

    I'd just like to put forward that if the combined votes of the two BL-tan options outweight the remaining options then that implies the majority wants some form of BL-tan, and we might want to take that into account
    I was hoping to put forward that the votes for a BL-tan shouldn't be spread out over multiple options, but rather that after it is decided wether to have a BL-tan or not, it be decided if it should be the same one or a redesigned one.
    Now we have even more BL-tan alternatives, oderp.

    Neco Shinji wouldn't even count as a "new BL-tan". It would just be Neco Shinji. ^^;;;

    It represents BL (BL) and is cute (-tan)

    Thus it is BL-tan.

    More of this... and wait, don't they all fall under "text and image banner"?

    New BL-tan is undefined.

    now I'm uncertain. A redesigned BL-tan would keep the same basic look but have a more, ah, refined, appearance, right?

    Yeah.

    Edit: Clarification though, it seems some want to argue that new BL-tan won't be a redesign, but will be an entirely different character called BL-tan.
    If you want BL-tan but more refined then Old BL-tan but new picture is probably it.

    There is no "redesign" option, it's the old one drawn better, or a new one that may not look anything like the old one.

    The problem with this poll is that it narrowly tries to shoehorn stuff into a few categories.

    I'll abstain from voting since admittedly what I planned isn't on there, but also because even if we did do new banners, I would want BL-tan to be one of them. Ergo, none of them really fits what my choice is.

    So, the OP is changed for people that didn't get it the first time even though I thought it was perfectly clear.

    So then if we want one that's the same BL-tan, but redesigned, we vote for old one drawn better? That's pretty unclear by itself.

    If anything, if you make an entirely new mascot-character then I'd argue it shouldn't even be called BL-tan, since BL-tan would be the old mascot, but that doesn't really need to change the poll alternative names as long as it's made clear to the people voting.

    I actually liked the idea of a new design based on the old one though... But hey, as long as we get more BL-tan I suppose I'm good.

    The narrowly shoehorned categories are taken DIRECTLY from the thread.

    Hey i3uster could you clarify in the OP that "image and text" is also going to be fanart? It's like you're saying only the "new mascot" will be original content.

    Anyway I should probably clarify my stance:

    I would originally have been sort of okay with the idea of "updating the old mascot", but its designer showed up here earlier for the sole purpose of trolling and insulting the forum as a whole. So I'm really uncomfortable with the idea of having that character represent the forum.

    Making a new mascot is slightly better, but I'm not sure we'd be able to agree on one, and I doubt we'd do much with such a character anyway (short of making some sort of Mary Sue TM OC).

    Text-only would be okay but a little bland.

    So I prefer the image-and-text option.
