    These are the five images that have been submitted to become CFC's official G&K icon (we didn't include Mercade's and General Olaf's because they're too tall, but Boundless' was based on that). If anyone wants to submit a new icon, we can have it as a late entry, but the competition will have had a head start!
    1. Boundless
    2. hoplitejoe
    3. Dark_Jedi06
    4. Camikaze
    5. Zyxpsilon
    The top 3 will go through to the next round of voting! Note the closing date of the poll.

    I've voted for the 1st one, as adapted from my first shot and Olaf's updated version.

    I Voted for the first one.

    1st: It's simple, and it's concise.
    2nd: my second choice though it's not clear that the sword icon is suppose to be an "&" sign.
    3rd &4th: Work but the "&" doesn't appear on the box art so doesn't really fit to well.
    5th: I give you props for creativity but it's to artsy for me and not everyone will get what it is.

    You should amend your rule so that if an entry reaches 50% in the first round, there's no need for a 2nd round.

    Well yeah, we'll probably do that if the lead is maintained.

    1) Boundless:






    2) hoplitejoe:






    3) Dark_Jedi06:






    4) Camikaze:






    5) Zyxpsilon:







    When I looked at the OP, I thought #1. But after I did this comparison with the current other icons, I'd rather say #4 (Camikaze) or #2 (hoplitejoe). Not sure yet ;)

    I like the 3rd one. The orange shaped like letters make this icon particular. Other icons are almost all white shaped. The 4th one is not bad too. But i had to vote.

    #4. Probably doesn't matter now, but to me it seems much cleaner and easier to read.

    I must say that you did an excellent job, Boundless. Very nice looking.

    Got my vote. :goodjob:

    Well done to Boundless and well done to Olaf.

    I think Mercade requires the most credit for designing the letters and the dagger/cross, if it were not for the fact that I submitted one I would have voted for yours :)

    Irrelevant.
    Is there still going to be a second round if option 1 wins with the clear majority?

    Maybe I´m getting blind but to me nr. 3 and 4 are almost the same. Their votes should be combined. Nr. 1 logo would not get that many votes if nr. 2 was it´s clone :mischief:

    ;) I vote(d) for me... not that it matters much anymore! My K is shifted at 90° to mimic the V - at least.

    It does look stylish and cool, but is probably too different to the existing ones. I also like how due to the K = V thing it looks like GV, which is also a common abbreviation of "Geschlechtsverkehr" :D

    1st one with the colours flipped: gold G and K, white +

    But otherwise, I still vote 1st one :)

    So, can we conclude that with almost 60% of the popular vote, Boundless, based on General Olaf's, based on mine, is the winner? Seems rather pointless to have a 2nd round if one already got a simple majority.
