    the quality of the favicon is very poor imo.


    I want to pin the website to my taskbar, shelf or what ever. the quality is so pixelated it just wouldnt do.


    so can we please please get a better favicon?

    I like the one we have now, it looks very retro

    on a modern apps it just doesnt work tho.


    like on mobile chrome or if you add it to unity in ubuntu. etc etc. looks bad.



    if you find the right graphic designer s/he can make it look good small or big.... atm it looks bad big.

    I had a go at making a favicon out of Tempy v3 yesterday, but I never got the chance to post it, so... here you go.

    Tempy v3 - white border outline

    Tempy v3 - black border outline without shadows ("simple" design)

    I personally prefer the first one, but then again, both of these might not be liked much. :P

    I would prefer a Tempy v1 in a slightly higher quality (maybe even pixel-style as the current one, just enlarged to look good in other "resolutions").
    My second choice would be Tempy v3, black outline (but still transparent inside).

    I vote for a pixel art Tempy V1, in high resolution.
