My opinion

I don’t like any logo of the suggested.

This is not as bad as the rest: VictorPorton 18:51, 28 April 2011 (UTC)

Here is a simple proposal:


I particularly like the first logo to use the "Sigma" idea. It's simple and direct, but the Sigma conveys an interesting double message. I would perhaps like something a bit brighter, though.

How about something simple, involving mathematical characters? For example: I just whipped this up in word so it's more of an idea that someone with photoshop skills may wish to take further

I like this new suggestion from Russell: Not sure the black background works, but the bright and varied colours are great. It suggests variation, but with an ultimate cohesiveness. --WikiSysop 18:46, 13 May 2011 (UTC)

Maybe combine the bright colours of with the "Sigma" idea from --WikiSysop 18:48, 13 May 2011 (UTC)

Re "Maybe combine..."; That could work... perhaps send out a hi-rez 'sigma' image, to whomever is interested, for trying out various color schemes. -- Russell

I like Russell's latest design a lot: It's a simple, clean design, that still conveys the idea of many contributions. --WikiSysop 10:53, 14 May 2011 (UTC)

Author of "simple sigma" logo here. Sorry - didn't notice the discussion on here. I'll post a link to a vector version of the simple sigma logo and a brighter version in a bit. --IgorKofman

@IgorKofman - great, look forward to seeing it. --WikiSysop 14:14, 20 May 2011 (UTC)

I propose going with I'll wait a couple of days more for objections / alternate suggestions, and if none are made, I'll make that the logo. --WikiSysop 19:14, 24 May 2011 (UTC)

I'm also not wild about any of them, but I find it hard to say why. I think the best explanation I can think of is that they are insufficiently compact — they look more like words than logos. Maybe one could make a logo just out of a [math]\pi[/math] and a [math]\mu[/math]. -- Gowers

@gowers – The \pi-\mu idea sounds like it might work well, if anyone’s willing to put something together. My favourite at present is – do you strongly dislike the suggestion? --WikiSysop 17:32, 25 May 2011 (UTC)
