Do we want an update for our logo?

"Why an update?" you might ask. The current logo looks nice, but there are a couple of problems which could be solved with an updated logo:

I doodeled around a bit and came up with some suggestions for logos we could use instead:

  • they all add an "S" at the end so that the new logo will match the site name as it is written in the url etc

  • they all use a stylised mouse icon instead of the cursor/mouse pointer to avoid confusion with the actual mouse pointer of the user

  • versions 1. to 4. are a variation of the existing logo. They retain the window decorations at the top and I only made the background a tiny bit lighter so that the dark top bar is easier to see

  • version 5. deviates from the existing design and removes the dark background.

5 suggestions for a new logo which add an S to the name and replace the cursor with a mouse icon

What do you think? Should we update the logo or do you prefer to keep the current one? And if yes, which logo to choose? Do you have any suggestions of your own?

Not a logo professional or active member of this community, so take all these with a grain of salt, but some ideas I see are:

  • Get rid of the "button" icons, they aren't very easy to see and add virtually nothing to the logo. Simpler is better anyway.
  • To keep in line with the existing logo suggesting command prompts, perhaps something like _> POWER USERS or $ POWER USERS.
  • Maybe drop the mouse/cursor thing? Maybe move it to the left side of the logo and use it as a "short" logo (such as might be used in the favicon)?
