General comments[edit]

  1. Yes, it is a nice-looking logo. The brackets doubling as book pages are very cool. But more importantly, I don't understand the symbolism of the circle and arrows in the center. Perhaps if we replaced the circle/arrows with a different-colored version of proposal v instead, it would have a more apparent symbolism. Νεοπτόλεμος 09:07, 28 April 2008 (UTC)
  2. I'm afraid I dislike this one quite a lot! (sorry) To me it seems kind of non-unified, scatty, and the dotted lines don't help with this. --Mcld 17:21, 28 April 2008 (UTC)
  3. I don't like these, there all over the place with things randomly thrown together. The quality is poor and it also seems to be trying to copy the MediaWiki logo. --darklama 21:02, 28 April 2008 (UTC)
  4. quoting Darkalama, no; morover, as I said before, Wikibooks is not only wikilinks (in fact there are very fewer links than on wikipedia). --Ramac 16:48, 2 May 2008 (UTC)
  5. I don't like this. I think that this logo is too hard to understand for non-wikibookians. --Pietrodn · talk with me 12:48, 3 May 2008 (UTC)
  6. I'd be happy with any of these except z2 and z3. – Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 20:11, 8 May 2008 (UTC)
  7. I like this set the best, good job 205.234.140.219 07:13, 19 May 2008 (UTC)
  8. These are impressive! I like the symbolism, we should use these 207.157.239.252 16:53, 28 May 2008 (UTC)
  9. I don't think these logos reflect Wikibooks at all. They overall either remind me of Wikimedia Commons (with the arrows and such) or Wikipedia with the puzzle piece. Not the greatest logos. I wouldn't go for any of 'em. Tkgd2007 00:28, 31 May 2008 (UTC)
    The orange one doesn't resemble commons too much, if at all, but I do see how the WMF colors +arrows do resemble commons--penubag 08:02, 11 June 2008 (UTC)
  10. Will somebody please answer the question: What does the center of (y) and (z1) supposedly symbolize??? I've edited quite a bit on Wikibooks, and it means absolutely nothing to me. It looks like something you would find in Alice in Wonderland when you are lost and can't find your way (i.e., no help at all). Yes, it also looks like the logo at Commons (see below), which is totally abstract to me, and we don't need another one like that). (z2) has nice colors, but it looks more like a Wikipedia logo. As I said below, (z3) is the only one that I like out of this set, and it looks more like a drawing program than a textbook you would read. --Willscrlt (Talk) 12:16, 16 June 2008 (UTC)
  11. Unlike the other logos that depend heavily on an attempt at poorly representing a book, this logo shifts the focus to the ubiquitous wikilinks. While perhaps more abstract, these series of logos make this up with their elegant simplicity and flexibility in image size. I favor z2 because y pushes forth a jarring orange color scheme, z1's color scheme (red, green, and blue) lacks any unity, and z3's pen is much too complex. I would recommend a change in typeface. In contrast the luxurious space within the logo, the "Wikibooks / in English" is cramped. The serif text and unnecessary drop shadow only worsens the overall effect. --Shadytrees 03:04, 22 June 2008 (UTC)
  12. oppose. Very hard to understood at first sight what it is. This logo doesn't represent the multiplicity of books in wikibook. --Gdgourou 10:53, 21 July 2008 (UTC)
  13. Why not turn the thing the other way round: new proposal?--Hans Dunkelberg 19:48, 24 October 2008 (UTC)


(y)

Version (y)[edit]

  1. Again, I love this one. It is my favorite of all logos ever proposed for wikibooks. I especially like the first orange one. I like the circle and arrows symbolizing expansion rather than puzzle pieces because they are already used by Wikipedia. --penubag 05:39, 6 May 2008 (UTC)
  2. This doesn't look like a book to me. Rocket000 03:04, 20 June 2008 (UTC)
  3. I'd also voice my support for this one. 207.233.110.65 21:05, 3 July 2008 (UTC)
  4. Sure!  — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 03:58, 24 October 2008 (UTC)
  5. It doesn`t look very much like a book, but this shows, how the Wikibooks come into being on computer screens.--Hans Dunkelberg 19:29, 24 October 2008 (UTC)


(z1)

Version (z1)[edit]


(z2)

Support Support (weak) Suits well to the other wiki logos, but the icon inside the braces should be replaced (although I have no idea what the replacement should be). --Rwirth 15:24, 28 September 2008 (UTC)

Sure.  — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 03:58, 24 October 2008 (UTC)

Version (z2)[edit]


(z3)

Version (z3)[edit]

  1. I think z3 would be decent if the dashed-line part was changed to a solid line. With the middle brackets lowered it looks more like a book and less like mediawiki's logo, but finishing that transition would help differentiate and make the imagery clear. The center content is also good because it shows the book being written, which is something worth conveying, while the arrows aren't really used in wikibooks and the puzzle piece is too wikipedia.--superflyguy 04:32, 16 May 2008 (UTC)
  2. Don't like any of these, but z3 is the least offensive and (of the choices) the most representative (to me) of a wikibook textbook written by users. --Willscrlt (Talk) 19:44, 13 June 2008 (UTC)
  3. Oppose all, neutral to z3: quote Willscrlt. -- RaminusFalcon «…» («it.wikipedia») 07:31, 19 June 2008 (UTC)
  4. Support Support – I especially like this one. The brackets symbolize MediaWiki’s features and the writing symbolize writing of books. It blends perfectly into all the other logos of Wikimedia. However, I’d love if localization of the logo was possible (e.g. translate the word “books”). The “in English” text under should not be there. It should be replaced with “Think free, learn free” (or the localized taglines). — H92 (t · c · no) 13:43, 19 June 2008 (UTC)
  5. The detail of the pen clashes with the solid color of the pages. Not sure about the dotted lines in any of them. Rocket000 03:06, 20 June 2008 (UTC) strongly agree. the pen needs to be in 2D not 3D--41.234.9.157 08:02, 4 September 2008 (UTC)
