Hey, I wonder if you have any good ideas for what the default logo for new MediaWiki installs could look like. Currently we use https://github.com/wikimedia/mediawiki/blob/master/resources/assets/change-your-logo.svg which is both garish and wrong (since $wgLogo is deprecated). I think we should get rid of the text, and make the logo a variant of the MediaWiki logo you designed.
Default logo for new installs?
Congrats on having the winning design: it's beautiful.
Hey, It seems your proposal is the clear frontrunner for mediawiki logo. Thank you! Do you mind creating more variants (like lower number of petals, different wordmarks like "MediaWiki" (and combinations of these variants). I know it would be a lot of variants but maybe we can avoid Black and white to reduce cases. Looking forward to seeing it in the next round!
Hi, thanks ) Yes, of course, I will do it within a couple of days.
I created a page with new variants of wordmarks - User:Serhio Magpie/Logo proposal. Number of petals dependents of type, smaller logo has less. Let me know if there's anything else needed.
Thanks. I will build a voting tool for that next weekend. Thanks.
You can test the voting gadget in https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/User:Ladsgroup/Round_2?withJS=MediaWiki:Gadget-logo-voting.js (on desktop).
Cool, works very well.
Okay, the second variant has won \o/ You probably need to transfer its copyright to WMF so we would be able to use it as the logo (also we need to wait for a month for legal clearance before proceeding)
Hi, thanks. Yes of course, what should I do?
I assume @CRoslof (WMF) knows.
I make sure the copyright is transferred (by pinging people :D). In the mean time, if you're not that busy, can you write down a document on the design decisions (like what does it mean, what it stands for, etc.) and some some sort of guideline for derivative logos (wikitech, technical wishes team, etc.) so they stay consistent in the future (if possible) would be great! Thanks.
Hello! Can you please tell me how the rights to the logo will be transferred? :)
Or @CRoslof (WMF) can help with it? :)
Sorry, i've been busy at these weeks and each day postponed work on document on tomorrow, oops. I'll try to do something this weekend.
@Serhio Magpie: Thank you for contributing your proposal to the logo selection process! Please send me an email (my address is on my user page) so that we can sort out the necessary transfer of rights.
