My picks in order :)

154) Cerberus ftw :)
166) Has that FF title screen vibe (character silhouette by the title)
182) Just doesn't do it for me

Opened your save. My computer wept. Switched to the ST planet and ship icons filled my screen, so I zoomed out. Game told me that it _was_ totally zoomed out. You could seriously walk from one end of the inner grav well to the other without getting your feet cold.

Bear in mind you need to use the actual art numbers for it to be clear -- you're referring to these by the current rank they were in terms of people voting, and that changes. :)

Anyhow, I really like all of these quite a bit, and have been undecided on them.  Other logos are still coming in as well, so the final logo may be none of these three, or might be an altered version of one of these three.  Another 1 day and 18 hours to go before the contest finishes and I have to decide on one.  As a general comment I'm really happy with the quality here, though.

Edited in the numbers above. 

Just throwing general feedback about the titles themselves :)

In a literal sense, yes it has. ;)

Check out #189 in the private part of the contest.  I don't think it's quite there yet, but it has the sword moved up and as the downstroke of the K as someone suggested.  The Cerberus will also get some attention.

I'm still waiting for the other designers to get back to me some more, and then I'll post a new poll with the revised versions.

Honestly, I think I like that one a bit less. But, I'm not really able to articulate why....

It's not done yet.  Right now the colors clash and it's not integrated quite well enough.  #191 is much better in several ways, but still not there.

Is there a reason #166 is so much smaller than the others? Or should we assume it would be scaled up to the same size as them?

It would be scaled up the same as the others, yeah.  You can click through and see it a bigger size if you like.
