Does Librivox "own" their Twitter account? And if so, has anyone thought about changing the avatar to a more Librivox-ian logo (the actual LV logo)? It looks like...a hallway in the dark?
Hello everyone,
I am currently somewhat MIA due to classes, but I will be back during breaks. I'll check up when I can, and I am slowly making my way through my DRs! Thank you for your patience.

Don't have twitter to check - but its probably the original logo - the one that was on the catalogue for years. Like everything , it's a matter of personal taste. Some liked it, some hated it :D . And of course it depends on what you use to view it and your settings.

Have we thought about updating it to match the site and it's current logo?

Yes, we "own" the Twitter account. The avatar doesn't look like much - you're right. :lol:

We don't really have a logo/icon for LV, other than the name. I'm not sure what we'd replace it with.

What about the image on the homepage? or the one for the LV account on Internet Archive?

What image - the name, "LibriVox"? Boring! :lol:

I always liked the poster:
http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Promotional_Material

We could square it, change the writing to a simple LIBRIVOX...
It's close enough to the current "logo" without being boring.

What do you think?
Cheers,
Ava.

We can have a header photo and a profile photo, apparently.

Header photo (recommended dimensions are 1500x500 pixels)
Profile photo (recommended dimensions are 400x400 pixels)
Photos can be in any of the following formats: JPG, GIF, or PNG.

I can upload 'em. You make 'em :).

I will make them from the poster (or come up with something based on it). I'm a bit busy today trying to recover data from a dead harddisk, but I'll probably get to it in a day or two. Although, we've been twittering for ages from a "dark hallway", so I guess it's not super urgent :wink:
Cheers,
Ava.

If you're too busy, I could make it for you. :)

Actually, come to think of this a bit more...

I have alerted Kathryn - of cover fame - to this thread. Her ideas are always amazing and professional, much better than what I (and probably you too :wink:) could come up with.

Let's see if she has time to do it.
Cheers,
Ava.

That sounds a really good idea Ava - and it isn't a hallway , it's a bookshelf :D

Have you looked at the image on twitter? It seems like a very tiny, rather pixely part of our old bookshelf to me...? Mostly it's green. And black. :lol:

Anyway, I have heard back from Kathryn. She's very interested, but will be travelling for two weeks starting tomorrow. My personal and totally unhumble opinion about this is: The image can wait. It has been like this for 8 years now, so it can wait another couple of weeks.
Cheers,
Ava.
