Some managers display pictures, badges or even animations which show girls with nearly nothing on them. In the community, Sexy logos has been in the past a topic for threads and forum contests for the best Sexy girls logo. Some managers even change their logo twice a week. The interest then gradually faded also following the introduction of the logo rating feature.
Each user can upload his own logo on the Hattrick server. When Hattrick itself hosted only pictures up to a filesize of 50 KB, it was also possible to place an external link to a picture on the Internet.
The picture has to be in .gif-, .png- or .jpeg-format and should have a maximum size of 210x260 pixels. While these extents are not mandatory, larger logos will be rescaled.
The name and logo policy states that:
no offensive, insulting, derogatory or discriminating names/logos (to group or other), including racist, fascist and terror org. symbols and similar are allowed. Also sexually explicit content, including nudity, semi-nudity or sexually provocative posesis forbidden. People should be decently dressed. And no promotion of criminal activities or use of illegal goods or substances.
While nudity is not allowed in hattrick, sexy pictures (hiding the important parts) will be tolerated.
Managers may use the services of logo designers, the logomakers. This voluntaries can work alone or in team, through dedicated federations.
The logo tread on the Global (English) forum might be usefull for anyone looking for a logo.
Several styles of logos exist in hattrick. The main are:
- Special design
- most people use logos made for them by designers of the various logo design federations. There exist all kinds of logos, round or shield shaped, any colour, with almost any type of graphic included. Designers tend to have personal type of style, and some have made a large number of supporters because of that.
- Real world football badges
- Some name their club after real world football clubs, thus wanting to show their supportership. Consequently, most make use of the real world club badge, or (slight) variations of it.
- Handdrawn pictures
- In protest against logomakers, or just because it is funny, some people have decided to show a graphic drawn with Microsoft Paint, which can be done in a few seconds and needs no graphical skills.
