So here's the now-retired logo, from thirteen years ago. One last comment, and I'll let it go. The old logo was pretty tacky, and the new one is just plain embarrassing. But what really needs to change is the name of the whole place. Deviant Art sounds like a place where deviants (perverts, pedophiles, sadists, etc) show off pictures of depravity. I remember thinking that when I first came here. In conversation, I refer to it at "DA", since I find the full name silly.
Change the name to something less goofy, get a real designer in to create your new look (not just a logo, but a whole image make over - it should all be done as one, not adhoc). And allow a selection, in the user's profile, of a half-dozen color schemes. After all, this is an art site. Why does it have a locked-in, fascist UI? Hate that color of green.
Enough! I'm done. We now return you to your social network, already in progress, without any need for suits dicking around.
I bet they would change the name but once you change the name of a site you also have to change the URL and there's always those people that don't realize its changing the name so they cant access the site at all. Besides that I honestly agree with you and I think most people just call it DA
