liamdawePersonally I think the 404 should remain plain as it's such a simple page (apart from your awesome new icon for it!).
Could You move text and graphics into the center, left side looks a bit overcrowded(and is to close to the border of the screen).

Yeah it does look better in the middle, done.

liamdawe...instead of him holding a mouse maybe he could be grabbing the G in the Gaming On Linux text?
Yeah, I was thinking that but wrote "L" instead by accident. I guess it all comes down to the size of the fontwork. It'll be either that or simply start the text below his elbow. As far as the name goes, I already chose to let others decide on that.

sobkashow do You feel about changeable accessories in Your logo. Mr. Xut(or Mrs, it's a penguin) might be holding different thing depending on the date(bodypillow with Linus Torvalds on his birthday or something)
This is a good idea actually. The logo would be always the same (static) however we could have small variations on specific dates. Kind of like what Google does with their logo: with a little hint about what's happening on an interesting day. Might be a cool idea, and since it'll always be the same bushy-eyebrows tech-sunglasses wearing blue penguin I believe it will only expand the 'brand'. I can even (in due time) upload an easy-to-edit SVG file for other users to download and make their own little alterations, so we can hold design competitions for certain events too.

Well try a few font sizes with him grabbing the G in Gaming On Linux and pop them up here? We can judge the best font size then.

For now I would rather we focus on getting the main bases completed so we can push ahead with the new design and work on other season/people focused additions to GOLLUM later.

So it will really be named GOLLUM?

Liam Dawe 27 May 2013 at 9:45 am UTC

Sure why not

Tolkien Estate might send a nasty letter?

We drop the second L, then.
