Fade to white?
Why does the Wiki logo fade to white at the edge, when it is usually displayed against a pale grey background? This gives a white glow especially around the bottom edge of the logo. Why not use transparency? Does IE's limited support not allow this? Would it impose unreasonable bandwith or client-side processing overheads? Alternatively, why not truncate the fade early at a pale grey level? PhilHibbs 09:01, 2 Sep 2004 (UTC)

Can someone enlighten me as to how the transparency is done on the logo? I am using Paint Shop Pro 6.02, and it sets transparency by selecting a pallette index to be the transparent colour. However, the Wiki logo loads with a white background and also has some white pixels within the image. So, if I set white to be the transparent colour, and then show the logo against a non-grey background, I get background pixels showing through the image.
I now realise that this is because PSP is replacing the white pixels at Pallet index 6 with white pixels from Pallet index 0 (which is the transparent colour). Any ideas how I set pixels to be a particular pallet index in PSP6? I have PSP8 on my laptop, so I will try that instead later. PhilHibbs 10:18, 2 Sep 2004 (UTC)
How to protect an image?
When will it be switched?
I put up a request for changing the swedish Wiktionary-logo a couple of days ago. Does someone now when or how the logo will be switched? Väsk 19:51, 30 Nov 2004 (UTC)
- If you want to speed the process up, consider sending a request to a mailing list (probably wikitech-l ?), it is possible, that not many developers watch this page. --Mormegil 09:01, 2 Dec 2004 (UTC)
We had a discussion on fr to ask if it would be possible to translate the two logos - "powered by mediawiki" and "a wikimedia project". We even have made projects fr:Image:Wikimedia-button1-sfrancois.png and fr:Image:Poweredby_mediawiki_88x31-sfrancois.png, but we think it would be better to use the templates for the actual banners. Anybody here can help and also couldn't it be done for all wikis ? p-e 13:24, 8 Feb 2005 (UTC)
¿Why don't just to put the code of the wiki and some specifications? It'll be more eficient. --Huhsunqu 22:28, 27 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Does the logo on a local wiki automatically change when the Wiki.png images is changed ?--Cradel 21:12, 5 June 2008 (UTC)
- If it had already been set by a server admin to the local Wiki.png (after the first switch), yes, every change to this image is then shown in the upper left corner, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| ∇ 21:17, 5 June 2008 (UTC)
- Err, can you tell me if the Wiki.png image on sq.wikiquote is used as the logo? because I recently changed it and the logo didn't change, thanks --Cradel 21:21, 5 June 2008 (UTC)
