Anarchopedia's new logo is:

New logo

(Guanaco, may you upload our new logo because I don't know how to do it :) Also, I think that new logo can be uploaded to eng:, too, because Meta and Eng community is the same. If someone who voted for logo or someone who didn't vote thinks different, let us know. --Milos Rancic 13:27, 9 Feb 2005 (CST))

What about the idea of using the new logo for (and all other Language specific "pedias") but keeping the current logo for META? (or vice-versa) Even though "Meta and Eng community is the same" you need a way for users to tell that they are in the "meta" site instead of the "pedia" site (in addition to the URL). Otherwise you'll get users creating "encyclopedia" entries in the Meta area. lyberty 19:29, 17 Feb 2005 (CST)

The end of voting is (the end of) Sunday, 2005-02-06.

Proposed logo
Current logo

See also a banner version which includes the text "Anarchopedia" and blurb text on Christiaan's user page.


  1. --Milos Rancic 23:40, 20 Jan 2005 (CST) I would like black color, not red-orange. Also, I think that we would have two logos. The first for left up corner (just star with circled A) and the second as banner (with text). Also, I think we should decide what would be written as text.
  2. --Anni 03:20, 21 Jan 2005 (CST) Ditto
  3. --Christiaan - 10:18, 23 Jan 2005 (CST)
  4. --Che y Marijuana 00:54, 26 Jan 2005 (CST) We can deal with the banner and what it says later I suppose, I agree with that idea though. But as for this logo, cool :)
  5. --proteus 22:28, 19 Apr 2005 (CDT) Nice and simple - what are you waiting for?? You could use the one above for all languages, and for meta, invert colour of inner circle/A and superimpose "meta" on top in blue or red so it can be seen...


  1. -- :lyberty While I don't dislike your design, I _like_ the simplicity of the black star. An advantage of the current logo is that it is not too obvious.
User:orderfromchaos Check out the wikipedia logo - it's quite complex but pretty good. I think simplicity is better for smaller icons but we need something more appealing.

From Anarchopedia talk:English:


I designed a t-shirt (with a definition of 'anarchism') a while back and I was pretty stoked with the outcome. It uses a star like the current Anarchopedia logo but is a little more sophisticated. I'm happy to upload it if people like it and want to use it as the Anarchopedia logo. It's got an 'A' in it too, which I imagine could be played on no end. It could be any colour (the example below is a dark red) and I could cut it down to the just the symbol for the main logo and add "Anarchopedia" instead of "Anarchism" for a larger version. See example here --Christiaan 00:24, 13 Jan 2005 (CDT)

You are welcome :) I would like (your) black star (not dark red), but we can make some voting about that. What do you think? --Milos Rancic 13:47, 13 Jan 2005 (CST)
One more thing: Ask people from deu: if they want your logo, too. --Milos Rancic 13:55, 13 Jan 2005 (CST)
can you tell something more about the t-shirt action - how had people reacted, where do you live (which country / environment etc.)? it sounds like really a good idea...
No action, just a graphic I designed for a t-shirt. I'm from New Zealand. --Christiaan 18:32, 13 Jan 2005 (CST)

Our German friends don't have much to say. How about I crop the image as mentioned and we have some kind of vote? First question though, what sort of copyright or lack thereof do you think we should use? Should we use GNU Free as for the rest of the site, or should a logo be treated differently (as Wikipedia does)? —Christiaan - 23:50, 18 Jan 2005

Yes, they are very quiet :) But, I said to you that you should ask them just for deu:, not for Meta. Contributors to Meta should decide what should be Meta logo. We can vote here. I'll announce it on the main page. --Milos Rancic 23:31, 20 Jan 2005 (CST)
I did, see deu:Diskussion:Hauptseite#Logo. —Christiaan - 10:15, 23 Jan 2005 (CST)

Any response to my comments above about copyright? —Christiaan - 10:20, 23 Jan 2005 (CST)

I think GNU FDL would be fine. What do you think? --Milos Rancic 11:23, 24 Jan 2005 (CST)

Yeah I agree. —Christiaan - 13:51, 25 Jan 2005 (CST)

Idea for Meta Logo

Even more important, I suggest, then voting on the new logo would be establishing a different logo (or logo version) to distinguish the META site from the multi-language CONTENT sites. (Compare to I can attest, as a new user of Anarchopedia, that it was not originally clear to me that meta.arachopedia was a separate site from ararchopedia. A difference of logos would be a visual clue that there are two entities. Maybe something like this?

OR we could go with the current logo for the Anarachopedia language sites (including default) and use Christiaan's logo for the Meta site! How about that idea?

- lyberty 00:59, 3 Feb 2005 (CST)

I agree, I think it's a good idea to differentiate meta from the rest, however I'd suggest a more subtle variation than the proposal to the right. While "A" is a latin character Anarchy is Order is a universally known symbol so I think using "meta" to try and differentiate would be too anglo-centric. I would be more tempted to run a thin continuous line around the star or something similar. I'll have a go when I have the original Freehand file at hand.
While I agree with you on this I don't think this precludes us from voting on a logo now. We'll just choose another one later which we can use for meta or vice versa. —Christiaan 16:07, 4 Feb 2005 (CST)

Idea for meta or site-wide logo
Maybe something along the lines of this to the right. —Christiaan 11:04, 5 Feb 2005 (CST)
New proposal is nice, but we voted for the old proposal. Maybe it is good idea that you make some page like Anarchopedia:proposals for Anarchopedia's logo and to talk about possible new logo some time in the future. (I don't think that we should talk all time only about logo :) ) --Milos Rancic 13:27, 9 Feb 2005 (CST)

hmm what happens to the logo? I can't see it. I think it would be nice to have an different logo for the meta wiki (maybe the blackstar with the word meta in it) --blackredisbeautiful 06:22, 14 Aug 2005 (UTC)
