Straw Poll – ABC logos

JD114 27 April 2008 29

I would like to condust a quick straw poll of Canberra viewers who watch the ABC regularly. (Please if you don’t watch the ABC regularly, pass by this topic and refrain from leaving comments)

Basically the questions are:

1. Do the new ABC logos lessen your viewing pleasure?

2. If yes, by how much, ie a little, somewhat, or a lot.

3. If yes, would you say you’ve reduced the amount of viewing of the ABC, or do you just put up with the annoyance?

As you can probably guess, my answers are:

1. Yes
2. A lot
3. I’ve probably cut my viewing by about a half.

What's Your Opinion?

Apologies for not responding in the way that you would’ve liked, JD114.

Sheesh! (You did ask.)

Dalek voices are easy.

Just talk into a fan.

At school, a kid made their own full-size dalek. he made the domed head-thing with an elaborate plaster mould, and a lot of shiny silver cardboard for the body. Couldn’t get the voice though. And now anything I watch on ten sounds like that! Tinny. Although now Big Bother is coming back, I figure I won’t be watching much on Ten anyway.

I like the way that nobody’s criticised them for flogging 1 and 2, by their cunning method of planting smoke and mirror people to do a bit of spin doctoring to change the topic.

dalek “cheap”, ant??

f’god’s sake, don’t tell the bbc props dept that – it cost about half the dr who budget!! (most of the other half went on leila’s short leather skirt…)

I find those silly little logos quite handy, for knowing what channel i’m looking at! The ABC one is a bit big and unneccessary, but I think they’ve shrunk it a bit.

What’s worse is how Ten’s sound has gone weird lately (I don’t have digital yet), sounding like a cheap robot (like a dalek or something).

hmmmm, no wonder the ABC management thinks it doesn’t need to listen to its forums about the logos, if this is the attitude of msot people. Looks like we’re stuck with logos, mainly through apathy I imagine. Thanks to those who enlightened me…

Sorry, I thought you were interested in the views of Canberrans who watch the ABC regularly. If I’d known you only wanted to hear from people who agree with you I wouldn’t have bothered!

Um, sorry – I have to say

As for you being retarded – I don’t know. Maybe that lower right hand side of your eye is a touch sensitive? Coming from a hifi sales perspective though (I have to have a rant here), those peice of s**t logos piss me off! I don’t know who started the untruthful rumour (from what I’ve seen) that the logos will “burn in” to your plasma screen, but they’re full of it. ABC was my last remaining hope to sell any plasma panels.. Now it’s all ruined. Ruined…!

Must be an autistic genius or something, realityskin.

are you retarded ?

1. No
2. No
3. No

IT’s a tiny somewhat transparent logo in the corner ffs! Though I think they should keep the emblem and add a 1/2 at the end. We all know that the emblem belongs to the ABC so I don’t hink they really need to get rid of it. But i’m willing to call the chinese embassy to have them organise a whole heap of rent a crowd thugs to come support my point of view, they could then rename it the CBC (chinese broadcasting corporation). WIN’s logo during sporting events to completely hide the channel 9 one is annoying though, normally when the cricket is on and it covers things you wish to see.

I’ve always wondered….

Do green frogs really go pop?

Nickamc Nickamc 6:44 pm 27 Apr 08

I’m all no’s, if I think you mean the monologues different presenters have every now and then. It’s just an attempt to attract a younger audience to the ABC, which they’ve done every year I’ve been watching, and when it doesn’t affect the general programming of ABC1 and 2, I can’t see a problem with it.

1. No.
2. ..No.
3. Yes, ever since the chaser’s stopped. But thats a different story.
