    SS stands for shamshe shamadarak

    Hi all,

    Not sure this is the right place for this post but I come to you with a question and possible debate.

    I was looking into making a logo for myself and possible making it my avatar on the forum and entropialife aswell. I wanted it to involve my name and SS seemed like a good start. Now I think you know where this is going :p
    So I went looking online and I noticed the Shutzstaffel emblem and I tought well this looks realy nice I can do something with this. I'm a verry open minded person and well I just think the 2 s'es in the form of a lightning works and looks realy nice. I don't mean just copy paste a nazi symbol What I mean is taking the concept and turning it into my own symbol. Will it be banable If I just make this into a symbol? Is it a smart Idea? what I just stick with it or go with a hole other idea? any sugestions?
    To be clear I'm not a nazi sympathisant nor will I ever be I just like the look of the symbol and how it corelates to my name. after all isn't this the same way Hitler took the swastika? cause it looked nice to him? It was already an ancient symbol. In my opinion the moment we link these symbols to the nazi cruelty doesn't that mean they won? and all the lives lost in WWII where in vane if u can't even choose something that looks nice and that you don't link to something in any way but people will give you a slap on your wrist or worse just cause they do?
    any opinions?

    Why would you want your name associated with something like that?

    This rings a bell, my avatar is called Slupor Slupor Slupor and I took part of the route you took for creating a graphic representation for my avatar. Realizing 2 or 3 letters "S" in whatever style will always be associated with the atrocities in WWII, I ended up with the imho epic and instantly recognizable Ego picure that represents the alter ego Slupor is for myself.

    So my recommendation is, stay away from the letter S, there is more to you than just first letter of your avatar's name. Be creative and you will find something that fits you!

    I don't I just like the idea of two s'es in lightning form and I want tot ake that concept and turn it into my own. What I don't wan't to do in any way Is just copy a nazi symbol right of the internet. the last thing is against ToS but what about the first?

    I just like the look of it I don't care what others think if they ask my about it I'll just say it looks nice :p and I choose it for the looks and nit for the past behind it

    I actualy like a lot fo other nazi stuff Like I like the look of their uniforms (lets face it theyr where much neather then the allied ones, even designed by Hugo boss I believe), I dig the look fo the Tiger I and II tanks and the Messerschmid 262 plane. Does that mean I sympatizise with these ideas? No I just think this stuff looks nice :p

    Anyone's opinion on freedom of expression aside, imagery resembling Nazi symbolisms is forbidden in some jurisdictions, especially the ones close to this part of history. How this is handled by media with international reach is just as different. But whichever the environment, you'll be answering questions forever. Choose wisely.

    People today will always put the double S lightning symbol together with the wwII and the cruel, inhuman actions performed by the former users of that symbols. Its inevitable that the majority of people will assume you sympatizing with this group and their actions when you use their symbols even if you dont.

    Imho this will cause more trouble than its worth having over a logo but its up to you.

    I mean we could open it up to some other people's creative skill.Forexample he could make it silly shithead and instead of a lightening bolt he could just use a piece of dung does anybody else have any suggestions ?
