Logo discussions & votes


  • Logo (current logos, guidelines, localisation)

Welcome to the process for finding a logo for Wikiversity!

Phase 1 of the logo contest has been finished (archive); we have our three finalists! The finalists were determined by taking the logo group with the most votes and eliminating all logo groups which didn't have more than half of that amount. I arranged the various designs from the winning logo groups by similarity; if you disagree with my classification, please say so on the talk page.

In phase 2, which lasted from 22 September until 30 September, there was an opportunity to refine the existing designs and propose new ones which had to be based on the basic design of the finalist logos.

The current round of voting is phase 3, during which we will determine which logos from each logo group will go to the final round. This current round will go on until 15 October and will use approval voting -- vote for as many logo variants as you like! The logos with the most votes from each group will go to a final run-off round to determine the logo.

If you have any questions, suggestions or complaints, please contact me on this page's or my own talk page. Thanks for participating!

  13. --Marbot 16:37, 2 October 2006 (UTC) WIKIMEDIA colours red, blue and green should somehow be introduced to this logo.
    It's probably too late to make a change like that, since we're already in Phase 3 of the vote. – Minh Nguyễn (talk, contribs) 19:29, 3 October 2006 (UTC)
    Should this logo win the final vote, we will naturally improve upon it until it's got a supermajority support, just like it happened with the Wikipedia logo. —Nightstallion (?) 14:36, 4 October 2006 (UTC)
