    There's a lot of quality choices here. This was a tough decision as I really liked all of them. I voted #8, because I like the sleek but simple look. Any of these would make for a fine logo though.

    Number 6 is great as far as im concerned.

    Also, number 1 as well.

    Are you just going to be replacing the logo or redoing the color schemes on the forum as well.

    I am partial to #1. Simple, clean, and to the point. Kudos to all of the graphic designers who submitted their work. You all did a remarkable job!

    I'm going to give my blunt opinion on them, I also want to appreciate everyone entering the contest.

    BHW isn't only about CS or CL phone verifying, so #3 (good design though) and #11 are out. #8 is made in Arial, that's out for me. #9 could be better without the strokes, #10 is a little bit too simplistic and associating with women although I can understand the sexy combination. #4, #5, #6 and #7 have some branding, but it's poor. Out of those though, I'd pick #6 with different lettering.

    Now to the ones I'd choose. I would align to right the sub-title in #2 and make it 1 or 2 points bigger.

    As for the 3 versions in #1, the first 2 are nice but don't work as well as the 3rd. This one has the title and the sub-title clearly visible and aligned to left. Most people will read from left to right and as they end the title their eyes will be directed to the sub-title. The hat could be a tiny little bit smaller so as to occupy a little bit less space from the "R" in "WORLD". Maybe try putting a space between "BLACKHAT" and "WORLD.

    Another thing I notice here is how "BLACKHAT" is white, when it has nothing to do with that side of SEO. With a couple of these small edits to see if it could improve its look, I would choose #1:

    I voted for #9. It does have some nice bling to it.

    I like #1 (3rd) as well, but the font needs to be bigger and the tag line needs to be moved to the right hand side. It's a pretty basic logo, though.

    Anything with yellow in it would be good, so we wont have to change the entire color scheme of the forum.

    All the logos here look pretty neat, but I gotta tell u that u should pick the logo that looks more noticeable and attracts human eyes the most, Most of the logos I checked out here so far look alike except for #3, it looks the most unique but I think that "blackhat world" sentence should be written more clearly in the picture & add .com at the end so people know its a site. I like #3 also cuz letters are written in bold and big font which makes it very noticeable as well.

    They are all brilliant imo. Im gonna choose 6, but 1 is close as it suits the color scheme, and is more modern than 6. But, 6 has character ;) it shows whose boss, <3 the mafia theme.

    '...Well I would love to advise on the shortcomings and mistakes of all the designs as PauloPT has. He knows what he is taking about , however, as I didn't even make the shortlist it will look like sour grapes, so congrats to all.

    I'd like #1 if the orientation of the hat would be left to right.
    And I like #9 although it doesn't represent any hat in the graphics, because it seems to be like a smooth upgrade of the present logo. I voted for #9.

    Without the strokes #9 has improved. I agree with artswerdstone and that has also reminded me of something. Try to flip the hat in the image below so it is pointing to the left, and down. By pointing left it helps the eye come back to the sub-title (blackhat seo forum) after finishing reading the title. You just need to select the had and flip it horizontally in PS if you have it in a layer. Watchout with the "W" though.

    I definitely dig the #1 group. The third variation is my favorite of the three.

    I wish someone would photoshop some pics of the forum with each logo in use, and then paste the thumbnail links here (imageshack.us multi-uploader). That way, we could get a good look at them "in use".
