Over the years, MacRumors has grown into a pop icon and I thought what better way to symbolize this than to pay an homage to another great pop icon. Imitation, surely, is the sincerest form of flattery. I got this idea as soon as Doctor Q released the stats a few days ago. Alright, here goes nothing. Hope you like.:)

Really clever,I like it a lot
However, and this is just my opinion, it kinda offends me just because I don't like McDonalds as a resturaunt or a company
Other than that... Nice

It's very nice.

Isn't it missing the mac/apple factor...?

What toy comes with the McRumors Happy Meal?

^^Glad you folks liked it!

I kinda figured everybody else would be doing that heavy so I wanted to go in a little different direction, something a little more subtle. I thought about using the MR apple and question mark halves as the arches, but it just became too unrecognizable to make the instant connection.

Ha! Well of course it's PRSI action figures for all the opinionated boys and girls!

Like your tar. Creative and clever. Very nice. :)

BTW, for some reason, your tar makes me hungry. :p :D

I saw the avatar the other day, and it's definitely my favorite. :)

This is (by far) my favourite avatar, bar none! This is such a clear idea and very well executed! Awesome job OP!

I agree, well done. McDonalds should be paying you for ad space ;)

It kind of offends you because you don't like McDonalds? Dude we all know McDonalds is trash and caters their swill to the lowest common denominator, but that's no reason to get offended by their logo... just don't eat there like everyone else. :D

I dig the avatar, but I do think that using a font with a bit more panache would give it more dazzle. What is that, arial? Maybe try Myriad Pro or something instead...

Don't panic

nice 'tar.
you could make a variant 'kinking' the third 'leg' inward so that it looks a bit like an R to make it read MR

I love both equally. McRotten holds a special place in my heart, especially when the McRib is back. Macrumors is a lot healthier.
