The project's not on time for anything.  It'll just get finished when it's finished.  I never did put a finish date on the project; too much stress.  I just fit in the work as and when I have the time.  Might be nice to do the MCC Scatter Rally 2020 on it, but that's in June so that seems pretty close.

I believe it's all on hold for the moment, but no doubt members opinions will be taken into account.

But seriously, if the badge does have to change, is there any reason why the club couldn't put up a few alternatives and just let the membership vote?

You know, a bit like an election...

My understanding of the requirement for a new logo, and I could be totally/partially wrong is that the existing logo is unsuitable for the smaller screens of smart phones and tablets.  The existing logo is degraded on small screens, whereas the proposed logo appears sharp and defined.  A case of horses for courses.  You can try this yourself on your smart phone, assuming you have one, and compare the two images.

Technology is constantly moving forward, for better or worse, and we have to take into account the medium that Club members (and potential entrants) use to stay in contact with the Club.  Therefore, if we're going to accommodate members with the latest (for the moment) technology, we have to ensure that what we provide is presenting the MCC to our advantage.

The logo has changed over the years; the existing logo is the current incarnation.

The proposed logo may not appeal to everyone, but there are other designs that can be proposed until we find one that does the job and appeals to most of us.  In a few years time, we could be looking at another logo because whatever logo we are using at the time is incompatible with the MCC micro-chip that's planted inside your skull :D.  Technology will have moved on.

I would have thought that any image can be digitised

I sincerely hope this isn't change for change's sake because I really do prefer the original logo.

I would also point out that with the ACU licence comes insurance cover for road use on a trial will the MSUK licence do that?
It seems to me that car enthusiasts will have to lean to do what motorcyclists have been doing for decades, stand up and fight for their rights.

A new Logo!
No No No
in this day and age when computers can supposedly soon be able to drive a car better than us it smacks of IT incompetence to make a lame excuse that a logo needs to be changed for computer use. Its more probable that the web site software is not self adjusting to the viewing platform types.

I dont see a green spot on the new Nortons or a Consignia logo on the royal Mail, and any one seen a bottle of 'New Coke' anywhere lately?
