So here's a bunch of variations. From the top down...

First row left has an extended "D". First row right is inversed and I forgot to extend the "D".

Second row is without the bubble outline. I prefer this "tail" shape to the one above, but it does not conform to the angles of the text nor the curve of the "S".

The first two rows have my experimental "S". I like that it's different and is echoed in the shape of the tail of the bubble - but I am not thrilled with it. I suspect that it could be improved if my font were bolder like in my sketch. The two existing fonts IMHO are too thin and too bold, leaving me lots of room between those extremes to play with. Another note about the "S" is that it might go nicely in a bubble, alone without the "I" and exclamation mark, like in the examples lower to the right.

The first and second row "tails" are in the center, coming from the left but could potentially come from any direction, including from above. All the bubble have the same rounded corners but can be increased decreased, or a different bubble shape all together could be made. For example, I like pill shapes. It could be a subtle/subliminal red pill reference should we choose to pursue that course.

The first and second rows are very similar but you can see what a difference an outline can make. I'm not expecting you to really choose between having an outline or not, so much as bringing to your attention that we may land upon branding options including several versions, all valid, but within usage guidelines for different purposes.

I'm not thrilled about the "dot net", but it works better when small. Needs work.

Third row left, features and extended "D". The bubble has a straight "tail" and the angle of the tail "cuts" through the "I" and the "D". The bubble overlaps the fourth row. There is potential for interesting tiling.

Fourth row left, inverses the overlapping example above, but with the truncated "D". Personally, I like that "D" best because it echoes the "tail" as well as with the "I" and the "A" creates a downward negative space triangle, though granted I already addressed the dominant "A" of the current logo to minimize any pyramid-like imagery (especially with the bottom 45 degree angles on the "A"). Further, SaidIt doesn't downvote so the negative space downward arrow is not as topically relevant. Also, it is not a wide 45 degree "A" so the downward triangle is lop sided. Still I like the truncated "D" for one final reason - it slices the word equally in half - like a fair dialectic, yet not still remains a whole word unit. I aligned the point of the tail above to hit a mark lined up to the "I" and "D" not letting the bubbles overlap. Now I see it would have made more sense to tile it better so the "slice" were continuous.

The straight "tail" is almost too mathematically sterile, without humanity. Maybe that's just me. Maybe I'm a robot.

Fourth row right, all forward slash angles were changed to back slash angles. There are pros and cons that speak for themselves. It's a little jarring compared to what we're familiar with. It's also unusual in type as most calligraphy hold the ink nib at a forward-slash-like angle. The "S" has a different character as does the "D" and the slice. I don't know what to think about it.

Third row right, are two variations on an icon. I don't like either - yet. I don't like the "I" in either and the exclamation point is stupid for several reasons. SaidIt not YelledIt. The dot net had a purpose of clarifying the address. And it just clutters it up. I also made the icon bubble smaller so it feels more crowded. Whether you go for the upper or lower "S" I think it may actually work well alone.

Aside from tiling the SaidIt bubble much much more (like for a bold banner or subtle background) I don't recommend doing the overlapping bubble thing too much. There are ways it could be fun, though. For example, if "SaidIt" text only had an empty bubble, perhaps in different proportions, coming from it. This image is black and white so colours may be used to avoid the masonic checkerboard tiling - unless you wish to embrace that - assuming you even like the tiling idea. Tiling is just a bonus whimsical design idea.

Also, I just noticed they are all lopsided. All have less space beside the "S" than the "dot net". Duh.

So that's my own initial self criticism.

I thought I'd pitch it by you to see what you thought before I do a dozen more variations on these variations. Don't be afraid to tell me what you don't like, even if it's all of them. If you can't tell me why you don't like them, that too is okay, but the more you share with me the better I can deliver something we all like.

I'd rather you don't use any of these designs as they are not final and have issues. Feel free to post it for a survey and/or copy paste any of my words you like. Or don't and keep it between us for now. It's up to you.

P.S. I have some new ideas I didn't mention.

Not just Polish. Every ethnicity had it's neighbourhoods with pros and cons, but as a people they were far stronger. By moving in other groups they forced them out, banksters helped by offering loans in the suburbs you couldn't refuse. There were no ethic communities out there - just "whites". It wasn't just Catholics or Baptists or - just "whites" with nothing but a consumerist culture.

I was a huge fan of the New Wave as a teen in the 80s. Max Headroom was my favourite. Check it out. It's SOOOO underrated and ahead of its time.

Like a portmanteau of vaporware and new wave.

We used to play Cyberpunk in college, like Dungeons & Dragons oldskool role playing games.

Reminds me of /s/Movies/comments/afk/kung_fury_official_movie/

Also, I just posted a bunch of music here that vaporheads might like. /s/music/comments/ans/morgan_willis_the_grid_of_death_some_breathy/

Are you fucking kidding me? I think I worked on that shampoo spot. Or one so close my memory fails me. Too many to count or remember circa 96-98. YouTube took down several of my ancient videos, but there are still a few left. My old embarrassing Wicked Sunshine Montage 2002 has a Loreal hair demo in it. https://www.youtube.com/user/JasonCarswell/videos

I love/d My Bloody Valentine https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=My+Bloody+Valentine

Magnora7 said he didn't like my pixel version (I don't blame him but think it'd be fun to do dorky gif animations with) and didn't want to go back so much as forwards (my words).

I had three designs pretty much finished, and was tweaking the last one when Illustrator crashed. :( I'm doing 4 more now, but taking a break.

Beyond that I don't know about help. Just trying to contribute.

Reminds me of JULIAN ASSANGE is a deep state LIMITED HANGOUT lifetime actor & in 'The Family' cult - watch 'WIKILEAKS MADE BY THE NSA' a mini-series expose on YouTube. https://duckduckgo.com/?q=YouTube+WIKILEAKS+MADE+BY+THE+NSA&t=h_&atb=v148-6a_&ia=videos

Why Libertarian? I'd certainly prefer them to the status quo but I've always had reservations. Further someone had it down to a pithy sentence what wrong with Libertarians. Something about the free markets, freedom to smoke dope, and ignorance about the dangers of central government and their foreign policies. Reminds me a lot of Marc Emery's sad tale... "Marc And Jodie Emery Arrested - What You Need to Know" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ditjXX1xgo

The Green Party isn't innocent either. Elizabeth May, the Canadian version of Jill Stein, who actually got a seat, still buys into the Climate Change propaganda.

Cortez is getting nitpicked apart, but over trivial matters so I wonder if she's actually legit, even if not my cup of anything either. Unless she's got big money she's not going to influence anyone.

My worst easily defined fear now is a Bernie repeat. PEOPLE ARE SOOOO FUCKING STUPID I'm sure it can happen again if they want it to. His rebellion (and likely inevitable assassination) would have done faaaar more good than what he did, legitimizing and bowing to the corrupt system.

How do you mean animate that up? MOAR! I can be compelled to.

X candidate = [insert name] candidate

I'm guessing the top 5 or less of the two wings of the same party.

Maybe the top 4 of alternatives, if there's enough dirt to bother with.

You're jumping to supremacy when a lot of racism is not about supremacy. And often there are very valid reasons for racism, even if I don't agree with them. There's also valid reasons to fight harmful racism - like the prison industrial complex fueled by the racist judicial system in the USA.

I'm Canadian too, now in Windsor. We have a lot of stupid laws.

I used to live in Brampton which has a HUGE Indian population. I liked it a lot for a lot of reasons. I don't care if they want their kids to only marry other Indians or if they express that. But I have a problem with hypocrisy and if white folks who express their wish for a "pure bloodline" whatever that may mean, get demonized then that's bullshit. Power to them and their freedom to have preferences and expressions - even if I think they're retarded.

Google and Patreon are tools of the establishment which is manufacturing half the problems to keep us divided rather than focused on the exploitative elite puppet masters who intentionally create their order out of our chaos.

If "they" stop bombing or exploiting and oppressing those countries then those people will not flee their country as refugees thus creating a lot of turmoil at their destinations. The elites are stirring the pots to intentionally shit disturb so we will demand more authoritarian power be given to them. It's their cycle.

It may start legit but they'll steer it towards their own ends.

Not rear ends. Well, maybe...

Maybe we should do a TT20 series on top 20 ways X candidate is corrupted.

Awesome!

I can't wait to throw this up in the weekly Saturday Jimmy Dore live chat! I'll be posting:

Tulsi GABBARD RED FLAGS search SAIDIT.NET for "Investigative Series on the Science of Identity Sect and Tulsi Gabbard"

Tulsi is hella cute but always seemed like a measured calculating robot from the military industrial complex.

Makes me sad though. I wanna root for someone. Jill Stein and all alternatives will be marginalized of course. Bernie's epic fail when it really counted lost me forever and profoundly failed the world.

Expressing racist ideas is not a crime. I don't advise it. But there are valid perspectives on all sides if you don't close yourself off to it, and whether you agree or not is up to you. If for no other reason that to understand their perspective to better argue against it rather than just repeat the same talking points they've already heard to no effect.

How would you argue against a Hindu family who only wants their child to marry another Hindu?
