Pour une transclusion de l'image, l'URL du logo est :
C'est l'URL du logo dans le coin en haut à droite de la page.
Le logo de Meatball [source] est disponbile en SVG. Différentes autres versions du logo ont la source disponible comme listé en-dessous. Pour faciliter la réutilisation, les fichiers GIF ont été produits. Tous les GIFS ont du blanc (palette entrée 255) tant pour la couleur d'arrière-plan que la couleur de transparence.
Tous les tags ont des marges.
Bien qu'il n'y ait pas d'accord sur le nom, voici un logo pour le SiteSoeur. Soyez averti que le logo peut changer à tout moment dans un futur proche.
Le logo original stimulé par Sunir sur une suggestion de Cliff pour jeter simplement ensemble quelque texte et vivre sa vie.
Le suivant fût 2 ans de discussions ayant abouti sur le logo en cours.
Pour le poster (compte tenu du fait que vous ayez le bitmap) :

Si vous postez un logo, vos efforts seront vraiment très appréciés !
WardCunningham a écrit sur la liste de diffusion :
Please can the new logo not have a mouse cursor in it? Sometimes I lose my mouse, and I keep thinking I've found it in the logo. It is as annoying as TV/Radio progr ammes with ringing telephones/doorbells that cause one to answer one's own phone/door. -- DaveHarris
That reminds me of radio commercials that have a siren in them. Everytime I hear one of those I start looking around for the fire truck. Besides being anoying, it seems downright dangerous to put siren sounds in a radio commercial.
The old NASA logo is referred to as the "NASA 'meatball' logo." [cf. http://history.nasa.gov/meatball.htm]
GE also has a 'meatball' logo.
I suppose this is out of the question - -- JerryMuelver. You could give him brown, lumpy texture...
though maybe a little smaller would be better. Play with fonts.... Idea would be to fill the circle with the circle-ized word, drop the box background. JerryMuelver
Now improved -- smaller, transparent background -- JerryMuelver
I like the ornament around it. I'd be nice if the MB part an Art Nouvea font. -- AlexSchroeder
Hey! The font is Culrz MT, stolen from PaintShop Pro! Come to think of it, the ornament looks vaguely familiar, too....Maybe we should go like this -- (it would really be nice if it would squirt) -- JerryMuelver
Can I suggest a different slogan? Hypermedia with Sauce is not an accurate summation of the goals of MeatballWiki, which (as I understand them) are BarnRaising Online Communities and the tools you might use to do so. (OnlineCommunity) --DaveJacoby
Yes, please do. -- SunirShah
How about, No island is an island.
Perhaps something inspired from the [Barnstar Subterfuge]
The more I think about it, the more I like the barnstar. Not only does it look nice, but its purpose is to strengthen the support of a barn, three concepts important to Meatball. However, I also like Alex's clasping hands idea. I am also visually illiterate. Maybe you should have picked someone else to be Editor. ;) -- SunirShah
I don't like the barnstar. When I look at it I think crude, mechanical, physical, old, strong, cruel, industrial. When I think of Meatball, however, I think delicate, frail, elegant, discurse, technology, internet, community, people, talk, help. -- AlexSchroeder
True. I'm leaning towards either the middle (meatball3) or rightmost (meatball4) of the ones you presented. Thicker has advantages, thinness has advantages.
The trouble with me is that I can't draw, so naturally I assume my input is valuable like a Wiki:PointyHairedBoss. I'm thinking about what would happen if:
But this is the same stupidity that's been causing me to drag my heels making a decision. Obviously the first two thoughts would make it complex, which is the opposite of what MeatballWiki is meant to be. And the third is unnecessary as the logo already is "imperfect" by not being perfectly symmetrical.
Maybe someone else has something actually useful to say. If not, what would you prefer, Alex? The only caveats I have is that the topmost head on meatball3 seems like it's been bashed in so that should be fixed, and that the name "Meatball" (or "meatball", "MB", "mb") ought to appear somewhere on the thing.
I don't like meatball4 because it looks scanned in, which makes it ugly. It's not the same as the woodblock printing of WikiWiki which looks like a woodblock printing filtered through MacDraw?. I definitely do not like Times New Roman because I'm a font bigot. In fact, there's this retailer down on South Bank here in Ottawa that used for their sign Chicago, the default Mac font from days of yore. My friends make fun of how I always have to point that out and exclaim how stupid it is. ;) Nonetheless, Times is too formal. -- SunirShah
Have we ever eliminated the idea of using an honest-to-goodness meatball? See, for example, .
I was also toying around drawing some dots, with lines connecting to themselves and lines connecting to each other (representing individual communities, and links between communities). Some of my scribbles reminded me of drawings of magnetic fields, like, say, the earth's Van Allen belts. If I have time I might laboriously map out something digital along those lines, but don't expect it really soon. ;-)
How about a protozoan like , only more spherical? Then it's a community, a ball, something at least genetically akin to meat, delicate and frail but with great potential. The only disadvantage I can see is that it would make a terrible logo. Hey - more ideas never hurt. :)
Something more colourful and abstract, building off of Alex's design (and Jerry's GE parody, of all things!):
Which can be turned into a tag as
Or (for those with fewer pixels)
And whose source is http://sunir.org/meatball/MeatballLogo/mb-70s.svg
I tried to make the colours not suck when mixed with the standard blue and purple. http://sunir.org/apps/mb.pl (currently) uses it as the logo.
I don't like a lot of ostentation, personally. I kind of liked the idea of just the circle by itself, no text, as that has a certain power to it. But it didn't seem complete either. Black/charcoal/light grey doesn't work though. It's too steep a difference; it makes the text jump out at you like the KuleshovEffect. --ss
Problem with both SVGs on this page: SodiPodi? doesn't like them. It only shows the "meatball" text for logo1.svg. What I meant in IRC, sunir, was what font did you use to make the curly braces? - t
Read the SVG. I used a <path/>, which I handrolled. They aren't curly braces, but abstract forms of people holding hands. -- SunirShah
Ah! I always took them to be spaghetti made out of curly perl-style braces... Sorry :( You've defined the path once and then applied it, I'd guess that SodiPodi? isn't smart enough to understand that. - t
I need to make business cards. How's this look? Please criticize thoroughly.
you already fixed what i was gonna suggest after i saw the first version. :) it looks overall fine to me, really nice, actually. something kept bothering me all the while though, and i finally grabbed it and measured it in photoshop. yup. the division between the red and white parts is just slightly off the golden mean. :) i don't know whether anyone cares, but if it were my card, i would enlarge the red part just a wee bit (and adjust other things accordingly). -- AlixPiranha
Good point! Thanks for going above and beyond the call to measure it! Here's my fixed version:
looking good. always amazes me how much of a difference those proportions make to my eye. i also like how the stylized person's arm comes back into the red now instead of lining up with the partition. that's one pretty business card. -- AlixPiranha
Just playing some more
I still like the first version (red/white one) much better than these. -- DavidSchmitt
