Nobody reacted to this logo stuff... Probably because people here are more 
interested in programming stuff than in graphic design :-)

I don't like it much :-(

The yellow Lua doesn't seems to fit, perhaps because I am used to the 
previous version. But it stands out too much.
And I don't see the use of these stars, except as a placeholder for text. 
But then, this placeholder wasn't needed before, and text was successfully 
placed on the orbit before.

What sport events? ;-) National (Brazil) or international? Perhaps you are 
thinking about the world marbles on sand championship 
<>? :-)

I just hope this is a temporary logo. At least, it is not yet on the Web 
pages... Otherwise, well, I can live with it...
