Some people see "PCMR" as annoying and off-putting, please use original art instead.

I'm no artist. I used an icon that was provided to me by the community. And it kind of matches. But if you can do a better one, by all means, don't hesitate.

Personally, I see that as a plus. If something that trivial can set someone's mind boiling, where would they find the patience to use Reshade? It's its own warning label.

If a simple icon can annoy you, you got bigger problems...

The only people who would find a PCMR icon annoying are console peasants...

I don't mind the icon, I'm thinking about other people who consider PCMR as a "toxic" community. It doesn't give a professional first impression, ReShade isn't related to the Reddit's /r/pcmasterrace subreddit where the ideology originated from.

No one complained before, so who cares...
Feel free to make a different icon though.

To be honest, I never even reflected over this. Maybe because I am console peasant with a PC. Yes there is actually people like me.

I think icon is silly looking. But a new one is cool too. But if learnt something about how Internet communities work. There will be people disappointed when you change something =)

I was actually delighted to see the PCMR logo being used! After all, ReShade is exactly what PCMR is about. Getting most out of gaming. Personalizing your experience. Working together. Some PCMR users may have crossed a line, but that happens in any community. Boycotting PCMR in general would amout to dumping the idea altogether, which would be throwing the baby out with the bathwater. I'm also using the PCMR logo and trying to be nice, so that people learn PCMR is not all bad. Some people just don't seem to get that PCMR is meant IRONICALLY and LIGHTHEARTEDLY, reacting with negativity that wasn't supposed to be there in the first place. In my opinion, a good way to react to things you dislike would be to make fun of them yourself. I've seen some funny parody cartoons and videos about PC gamers and have enjoyed them as well.
