Hello fellow nixers,

This thread is about creating an internet badge that can be inserted in signatures or on websites all around the interwebs to show your nixers affiliation.

Let's open the brainstorm session with those links:

Did this ever take on.
May I propose re-using the hacker's emblem, a glider.

No, we never settled for any "badge", this is still an open question.

I've already added some reference links in the first post, I mentioned the glider too.

I like z3bra's idea, just to use the forum's logo. The glider is too generic.

lol, do you mean that this looks like an anus or that the persons on the forum are assholes?
(I don't want to sound rude, sorry if it's against the rules)

then why not create something that is a mix between a glider (GoL) and that star, they both use the same colors (at least).

It's not the first time we have brainstorms. It's easy to throw ideas around but once it's time to implement them there's not much content.
We're open for ideas, we submit and vote.

It's been dubbed "the butthole logo" long ago for a reason. "E Pluribus Anus".

How would they be combined? Replace the dots with the star?

I think he meant a GoL setup that would generate a star, which could be interesting.
EDIT: I've tried a bit (now I realize it looks like a snowflake):

Somehow like what I had in mind.

Not bad, but not perfect.

bumping -- I'm wanting to link the list of nixers sites as a form of webring on my site and looking for an image to use on the link.

The list: https://github.com/nixers-projects/sites...user-sites

Some potential "internet badges":

- 1 https://i.imgur.com/MrGcxzY.png
- 2 https://nixers.net/conf/2020/nixers_conf..._white.png
- 3 https://nixers.net/nixers_icon.png

All of these look pretty OK, and 3 is probably the most recognizable as it's the favicon and the default profile pic. Maybe we could scale up 3 a little with like waifu2x or something. Or get a proper svg goin

I like the idea, many of us already have a "friends" list on our website linking to each others and this could be a step forward.
As for the internet badge, I'm personally still undecided. Maybe we could offer light/dark/transparent alternatives so that it fits any web designs. I'll try to contact a friend of mine who's a graphic designer to get their idea, that might help as I'm clueless on this topic. Otherwise, we can settle it within the community by majority vote.

We still need to gather ideas and brainstorm though, so keep them coming.

brainstorming

what if the "*" oriented logo had a little circle with a color at each end -- then for example we could give it 8 arms and make the colors map to the ascii colors black through white references here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ANSI_escape_code#Colors -- that might be too messy. we could pastelize them or make them more gray as well.
