Please, change your logo. It hurts my eyes. Thank you.

Perhaps your logo was good enough when your website was less popular, but now that you have all the google reader expatriates, you might want to give it another go.

The logo is fine. I'd rather have Samuel devote his time into the product right now.

Unless you're volunteering to help Samuel out with the logo?

I kinda want to agree. The logo used on here is absolutely fine, but the blurred variation on dev.newsblur is kinda painful. Swapping it out would be fine.

I really like the logo. (There are a couple of fonts, on the other hand, that could do with some tinkering ... :-) )

I find it's perfect on my phone. It really stands out in my app drawer.

Harsh! It's not the best logo ever, but it's things like the sunburst logo that remind me that it's the work of an individual. It gives the app personality, and draws a sharper line between tools and platforms.

To clarify, the logo I'm referring to is the blurred "Newsblur" at the bottom of the website, not the sun. Judging by the OP's point about it hurting their eyes, that's probably what they're referring to too.

Specifically:

One guy being crushed by a 15 fold increase in his userbase overnight and that guy asks for a logo redo.

That just made my day.

In the tech industry, we call this a "minor change" that can be applied in "very little amounts of time."

In the tech industry, I usually call things like this a "waste of my time" which I'm "not going to implement right now can't you people tell important things are broken".
