which circle a?

:anarchy: vs :anarchopunk:

please boost for maximum votes. :boostRequest:

I must admit the results of this poll surprised me.

@avad i'm also realizing the emoji i used has the cross-bar of the A going right though, when the real dichotomy is the punk circle A vs just an A in a circle. but i think the spirit of these two styles is there, forgoing various minutae

@mart0 the sans serif circle A gives off "person in a business suit" vibes idk how else to describe it

@mart0 like it's Too clean, where did all the anger and distaste for the oppressive structures of our current society go? not into the logo that's for sure

@keith @mart0 clean circle is all of those things, but trying not to stand out.

Clean circle A is the direct activist who puts on a beanie, high viz vest and carries a clipboard when they take a grinder to the anti-homeless spikes.

Clean circle A gets shit done, and doesn't get caught

@keith @mart0 overdrawn circle A is important too! Overdrawn circle A is the authentic, passionate, rageful side. Focused on inspiring and activating others.

Both are valuable

@rgegriff @mart0 This was never intended as a judgement of the people who prefer either logo, just my personal taste and thoughts on the logo design. And yeah, both sides are definitely valuable.

@keith @mart0 for sure! Didn't mean it to come across that way if it did. I was just jumping in on the idea of personifying the logos.

@keith
To me it looks like a logo of Katniss Everdeen Disposal, Inc.
@mart0

@elilla yeah i actually thought this was the emoji i was using but now it's too late lol!

@mart0 On here the shortcode for this one :the_good_circle_a: is ”the_good_circle_a”

@mart0 K: I have a very soft spot for :anarchopunk:, but I typically find myself using :anarchy: more often than not.

@mart0 anarchopunk because it’s actually visible on dark theme

@mart0 anarchopunk for spraying and the regular circle-a with the regular A crossbar inside the circle and not outside the A for drawings/flags imo

@mart0 voted overdrawn purely as a self-description without imputing value judgment

the value judgments ignored in the decision:

- the red one is the one that works on both dark and light themes

- the overdrawn one is the one that's most easily recognized and thus most heavily assimilated

- in this current environment the geometric one may be easier to draw and require fewer bits to transmit over limited or improvised infrastructure, making it more punk than overdrawn

- what @rgegriff said

@mart0 What context? Because the punk anarchist symbol looks better, but has poor readability in emoji form.

@Vordus just in general. Not a poll on which emoji, but which geberal version of the circle A symbol.

@mart0 i am in dark mode on my app and could not see the first option so, while i think i would have preferred it, i went with the visible
