Let's vote on a different temporary logo (also known as "favicon" or "icon"). Please keep discussion at this post: Change the Islam.SE favicon (currently "Is") to something Islamic? This post is for voting.
- Please only upvote one candidate; we have no real way to verify this (I trust you),
- Downvotes indicate strong disagreement, e.g., "hold on, you've missed something important".
Chinese.SE experience: I plan to organize this as at Chinese.SE. We mostly reached a consensus there, and nobody raised major objections, so the winner 漢 is now proposed (and hopefully it's in the works).
I select the candidates that I think have a chance of winning.
I present them completely without context (as they would appear in the "Hot Network Questions" etc.).
The currently logo is "Is" or "IS" depending on where you look. Noone thus far has indicated a preference for "Is" over any of the candidates. Other examples: Chess.SE uses a rook ♜, Poker.SE uses a club ♣.
(If we don't reach a consensus, hopefully we can at least eliminate most candidates, then maybe have a second round of voting with two remaining candidates.)
What we need to consider:
The logo is mostly going to look very small, and needs to fit into a square. It'll likely look slightly different than the characters below.
It'll almost certainly be plain white text on a blue background (like all the others).
The logo would be able to be seen by everyone (so there's potential for mistreatment).
Islam.SE does not favor a particular denomination.
I'd argue it's sensible to minimize controversy.
If you can't vote for religious reasons (e.g., I could imagine someone not wanting to downvote certain icons), then perhaps leave a comment. But we are just voting on the use of an icon for an Internet site.
