Okay, I have added a runoff poll for all of the options in the other poll that got over 25% of the vote, which means the three above. This topic will serve two purposes, first and obviously to show popular opinion. Since the previous poll allowed you to vote for three options, it wasn't as accurate of an indicator than this poll, which requires you to pick the one you like the best. The second purpose is discussion of implementation. For instance there has been small debate on where the burger pips should be placed should they be implemented and also whether the lego pips should be as doppleganger presented them or horizontal like has had in his custom title. Some people have also touched on other ideas such as stacking them next to avatars. Obviously there are pros and cons to all of these ideas, so it would be good to reinterate and discuss them here. You may change your vote in the poll at any time, so if you are dead set on having a certain one of the options, attempt to convince people.

I will note, as you should already know, that popular is only a factor in this process and just because one wins by one or two votes, doesn't mean that is the end-all be-all of the decision. The admins will use all of the ideas and opinions presented here to make our judgement. If there is a clear winner, perhaps by more than 30% above the other choices, then we will obviously consider it much more heavily.

This is your last chance to have a say in the pips issue as when this poll is over we will make our decision rather quickly and that will be that.

The legos. They must be.
It is our future.
Besides, the hamburger thing just seems weird.

The legos, if for no other reason than simplicity.  I like goldenratio's idea of using the hamburgers as a means to differentiate between different user groups.  Also, maybe your burger could change as you get a certain number of posts.

That's if the burgers are used for anything at all.  It's sort of a weird idea and doesn't seem to fit well with any other aspect of the forum design.  Maybe make them emotes instead?

A question: would the hamburger be vegetarian for Doktormartini?

Emergency swing vote!  I read this, gazed thoughtfully at the legos, imagined them positioned somewhere near my avatar and threw up in my mouth a little.

no pips

if they're going to be stacked next to avatars they should look like tetris instead, btw

at first I was going to agree with panda about it not looking good in practice, but then i decided to try and photoshop it in and it doesn't look half bad!

i'm not convinced yellow is the correct color to use for regular members, but other than that I think it's fine! Hamburgers are COOL and everything and it would be nice to be unique in being able to distinguish levels of members that way, but I'm not convinced they will fit.

However, like I said before, I don't really care what anyone does. If you guys want to do hamburgers and pips together or NO PIPS it's all good....

Hmm... I like the look of the legos... But... hamburgers. I'm debating changing my vote to legos, but I demand the hamburgers be used in one way or another, even if its just random hamburger week.

(p.s. I just realized usernames look better without the underline, like goldenratio's)

No, the burgers look terrible now that I've seen GZ's post.
The lego ones actually look pretty good, and I wouldn't mind seeing them being used for a bit. They aren't too bad, so I would give them a shot.

I am growing accustomed to the no pips thing, though.

No pips but if the burgers are going to be there they need to be on the other side.

Wow, the lego pips look awful and the burger pips look halfway decent.

My vote: no pips.

man this is pretty good w/o the lego pips

i think we should have burgers to designate usergroups and no pips, that would be stylin imo.

both together is like WE ARE GW WE ARE WACKY LMAO

of course the burgers alone would be redundant since, the colors are what designate usergroups...

this is a conundrum but im voting for the least "supergay" option which is no pips.

i'm a robot is what the deal is

I voted for burgers since it's pretty obvious if they win they aren't going to be regular old pips and the lego pieces look shit as far as I'm concerned!

The old pips were better than the lego pieces by a good margin, why would we move from fine to bad?

I mean no offence Doppleganger you are an excellent spriter but they are just not good for pips!


Unless... we change the entire theme of GW to a lego-based one! lego world forever
