I was wondering about this too. A few days ago, I considered making my own new BLF logo and using a CSS override to display it.

Hmm, do we really include special deals that only last a short time? I think something that’s worth getting on the front page should be a permanent good-value-for-the-money. This thread isn’t about short term deals.


Hate to be that guy, but this ^

Er, the winning lights were decided quite a while ago… SK-68, SRK, and the SF L2p. I still think the C8 should have been #3 (since the two C8 entries had a higher total vote than the L2p), but it was a close call between P60 host and C8 anyway.

And a year and a half later, the three (or four) lights chosen still seem like they do a good job representing the spirit of BLF. They are iconic budget lights, and thus a good choice for our, uh, icons. Smile

this page went dormant suddenly after 2013.
Maybe the 3 lights need to be rethought of again ? Silly

I think the SK68 and SRK is still a good choice, but maybe the L2P be swapped out for a classic C8 or 502b were all familiar with.

What about a new flashlight - one of the OL built contest - maybe one of the best three, if it is ok for the builders?
BLF is a unique forum and one unique flashlight would fits well.

Light up the darkness.

+1

P60`s are not that popular anymore (in comparison to when we did the vote). Various Convoy lights seems to have replaced them.
