Wikipedia logo v2 rollout[edit]

I see that lots of logos are still missing. When those wikis are switched to Vector+logo-v2, will the logo default back to the English version or to Wiki.png? I suppose the former, given that also local wiki.png should be updated automatically by some staffer before re-pointing logos to them as it's supposed to happen per cary on bugzilla. --Nemo 09:13, 17 August 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

This should probably be asked on commons:Talk:Wikipedia/2.0. I'm just trying to cleanup things and get all of the information down in one place, that's the place for coordinating the actual Wikipedia logo v2.0 roll-out. Cbrown1023 talk 16:26, 17 August 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank you (although it's quite weird to use Commons instead of Meta for similar things :-p). --Nemo 18:24, 17 August 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Standard titles[edit]

Are we going to move logos to the standard title as soon as possible, or should we wait for something? For instance, if the wiki logo points to a Commons image will it still work after the image has been moved? And, do we know what logo we should move to the standard title where there are more (e.g. Wiktionary)? Should the link to the current logo position be added to the table? Finally, who is going to move images (do we have some willful sysop on Commons, or will we have to request local sysop/movefile right)? --Nemo 09:13, 17 August 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I think we're going to wait for the table to get mostly complete and then see about moving them. I'd probably talk to Cary first to make sure that I have his backing, and then move them myself and possibly get other Commons admins to help. I'm taking things one step at a time, so I haven't worked out all of those details yet. Cbrown1023 talk 16:25, 17 August 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Ok, let me know if you need help on Commons in case you can't find anyone to move files. --Nemo 18:24, 17 August 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]


I see that the slogan is still inconsistent. There's been a long discussion on that and we might want to check it again, but at least for currently missing translations we should try to be sure that they're consistent. --Nemo 09:13, 17 August 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Where is it inconsistent? Pretty much all of the translations except cs (which is allowed to have a different one) and sq (which hasn't been updated yet are using the new slogan). They're not all exact translations because that really doesn't make sense for a slogan... it should be mostly home-grown but follow the spirit. (For example, I've been telling people that they should feel free to translate it as "free" instead of "open", if it doesn't make as much sense.) Cbrown1023 talk 16:23, 17 August 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
There's also b-de ("Die freie Bibliothek"); with regard to open/free, I agree on flexibility, and I can't speak about other languages, but e.g. in Italian a literal translation would have worked. I was just noting this to remember that I have to re-check that discussion when I have more time. --Nemo 18:24, 17 August 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Why isn't the Wikisource slogan striked out? It's not supposed to be added to the logo, but please note that some Wikisources have recently added it, starting with fr.wikisource (which has suggested to do so to several other Wikisource communities, even without a central discussion/decision). --Nemo 09:13, 17 August 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Although it's not on the logo, the slogan is translated for every Wikisource, so it's definitely something we want to keep note of. Cbrown1023 talk 16:11, 17 August 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Does this apply to Wikiquote, Wikinews and Wikiversity, too (copying MediaWiki:Tagline might be enough)? For Wikisource, though, I think that we should keep an eye on those diverging logos... --Nemo 18:24, 17 August 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I think just Wikisource, because that's the only project with a standard slogan like that that's not on the logo. Though if it becomes an issue and other projects object to not being on the list, I guess we could hide the Wikisource slogan from the page. Cbrown1023 talk 00:16, 24 August 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Serbocroatioan wikipedia[edit]

uses two scripts, Latin and Cyrillic. Cyrilic text is Википедија (Wikipedia), Слободна енциклопедија (The Free Encyclopedia) -- Bojan  Talk  02:36, 18 April 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I am aware that the interface of the Serbo-Croatian Wikipedia uses both scripts, but since 99% of its main namespace articles are written in the Latin script (or, at least, I have not once stumbled upon an article written in the Cyrillic script while randomly clicking through this wiki), I decided to suggest a version of the logo that only uses the former. odder (talk) 19:55, 18 April 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Incorrect. Majority namespace articles were written in the Cyrillic script, but the sysop OC Ripper is against Cyrillic and he selfwillingly changes the text into Latin script, no consensus, no discussing it with original author. He disables the revert to the original Cyrillic text by creating Cyrillic name that redirects to Latin script name. That is how the Cyrillic texts disappeared. Gusskie (talk) 20:07, 13 May 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
As  Bojan  written uses two scripts, Latin and Cyrillic. Cyrilic text is Википедија (Wikipedia), Слободна енциклопедија (The Free Encyclopedia). Please do not discriminate Cyrilic script. Serbo Croatian wikipedia plans using both scripts same as on Serbian wikipedia, having tabs for transliteration. So reducing logo is not natural. --Prado (talk) 13:51, 19 May 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
It appears that TheStefan12345 created a logo written in both scripts, so I'll go ahead and replace the current one with his version. odder (talk) 13:20, 4 June 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Need some help ...[edit]

Dear Cbrown,

I am working on the catalan version of the Wikiversity ("Viquiversitat"), it is still a beta version, but it would be very useful to have the official logo with the name translated into catalan. I have been searching around and could not find the font of the English (and other) versions to do it myself, and I'm still not sure if I am allowed to modify it or not since it is copyrighted. At the moment I am using the Spanish version for the templates and so on (see: Projecte d'aprenentatge for instance), but it would be much better to have it in catalan. Any help will do.

Logo for yiwiki[edit]

Can someone please explain what is wrong with the current wiki logo for yiwiki and why it needs to be changed? --Redaktor (talk) 16:41, 27 May 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The current logo does not have a vector version (SVG), which means that it isn't usable except for the top-left corner of your Wikipedia. I have a new logo entirely from scratch upon comments from Amir E. Aharoni, the author of the original logo, who told me it's even better than his version. odder (talk) 19:55, 27 May 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
But why have you changed the layout of the text? --Redaktor (talk) 19:34, 28 May 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Because I had to re-draw it from scratch? If you don't like it, just say so, I'll leave you in peace with your unusable PNG logo. odder (talk) 20:07, 28 May 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
????? I do understand the need for a vector version of the logo. But the new text does not conform to Yiddish orthography. It should use the ligature which appears in the current version. --Redaktor (talk) 13:11, 31 May 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I asked Amir to have a say in this discussion, let's wait for his opinion. odder (talk) 17:54, 1 June 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Redaktor, what ligature are you talking about? Unless I'm missing something, it says די פֿרײַע ענציקלאָפּעדיע, which is the same text as on the main page of yi.wikipedia. Do you want the pasekh under the yudn to be higher? Or is it something else? --Amir E. Aharoni (talk) 17:58, 1 June 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yes, the two yudn with a pasekh is a single character. Thanks. --Redaktor (talk) 11:48, 3 June 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I would appreciate if someone translated this into regular English. Thanks :) odder (talk) 13:05, 3 June 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Not really, because I don't know all the relevant Unicode codes. Perhaps you could tell us how you constructed the text, because it seems to differ from the text in the current logo. --Redaktor (talk) 22:03, 16 June 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I just copied the text from this very page and inserted it into Inkscape, and then coverted that text to path. If my Inkscape isn't broken, then perhaps the text is incorrect? odder (talk) 22:25, 16 June 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Logo for crwiki[edit]

We would like that you wait before updating crwiki's logo (unless there is something urgently wrong with the current one ?). We will need a discussion to how better reflect all dialects of the language in the logo, since now it is written in only one dialect. So please wait for the result of our discussion before updating the logo, thanks. Amqui (talk) 16:52, 27 May 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I'm flabbergasted. The new logo does not differ from the current one in any way except for the fact that it uses the new (v2) globe. Why do you need to discuss it now? I suggest we go ahead, replace the old globe with the new one, and in case you decide to have the text written differently, simply change the text in the new logo directly on Commons (I can do this myself). odder (talk) 18:06, 27 May 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
There are differences in the text, unless you can point me to a discussion where the differences in the text have been discussed, we would need to wait for the on-wiki discussion. Not all dialects use the syllabics used in the logo, not mentioning the differences in the wording, I don't see the point of updating for something that isn't correct.

Nous utilisons présentement "ᐗᑭᐱᑎᔭ" pour "Wikipedia", au lieu de "ᐧᐃᑭᐱᑎᔭ" comme le logo utilise. Cependant, il faut quand même noter que ce terme n'est pas valide dans tous les dialectes, je ne sais pas quelle est la solution. Amqui (talk) 23:20, 27 May 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi; many thanks. Yes it is as written: WICIDESTUN.
