Whoever made it, thanks. It adds a little bit of color to an otherwise muted and understated color scheme here at AI.

The color scheme is just fine here. Bright colors and flashy graphics get real old real fast. Your right though, the new years graphic is a nice one, but things like that should be limited. Long live grey AI!

Besides the new years eve AI pick, which I like, the only other thing that sticks out from the gray to whch we type is the ads. I am starting to get sick of them.

Someone managed to guess it - of the top of my head, a ??marmat?? I just remember it was an animal I had never heard of before, and the answer even got down to the specific ??breed??.

I am sure if you go looking all will be revealed...

Someone did get it right, it's an Altai Marmot. The thread can be found here.

I have no idea who changed the logo. I was actually about to ask the same question. Jonathan?

Nope. Guess again.

As for the sound, it was a marmot. Browse the threads in the Suggestions forum and you'll find one about krispy kreme that should explain it all.

True. It was a bit surprising to run across the new - but albeit short-lived - logo.

Was this inspired by Google perhaps?

EDIT: Spelling.

There should be others like it in the future. Maybe a...20th Anniversary of the Mac one? I don't know.
