Looks like we have a clear favourite; here are the aggregated votes from the forum and the group:

Rocket: 5
Roundel: 7
Slate: 13

So congratulations to Paul Marshall (author of Dibley) who submitted the Slate design.

I admit it's probably not the choice I would have made (I didn't vote) because green text on a black background reminds me too much of old VDUs from the pre-BBC Micro era - not exactly the impression of a 21st Century product I might have preferred!

But what do I know? I will go along with the 'will of the majority' as seems to be the trend these days - at least it's not an irreversible decision that will have an adverse effect lasting for decades..... grin

For what it's worth, so did I! Still, I'm getting used to the one that came top in the poll, and anyway on my fast phone it's only displayed for a second. smiley

Perhaps the originator of Roundel (David Marples) might choose to use something similar for his own Android app(s) so we may get to see it again.
