we need a mascot.

but instead of having some little gopher with a stick up his ass, how about we choose something more suited for this community?

something simple that doesn't look fuzzy and make us look like we're a college sports team.

my ideas;
- not an animal
- related to our interests
- doesn't need to be recognized by anyone outside of our community (e.g. not some ascii art of stallman eating his toenails)
- simple

I think something simple with a slight hint about our love for *nixes would be the best option.

I like the Mass Effect franchise and to make an homage to it, I propose `toilet --gay -f mono12 n*` as the logo/mascot.

It's got an n in there, it's lowercase, a wildcard and some rainbow colours. Anything goes so long as it's *nix.

EDIT:
Here is an artist's representation of it:

The artist was my computer :3

i like the n* idea from irc:
Code:
┏┓╻╻ ╻

I'm ok with the `n*` idea. The hick is that it should look good as an icon first, if it's too detailed it won't be scalable.

don't worry bro, I don't think two ascii characters will be "too detailed"

This n* idea is cool, nice one dami!
But this is not a mascot... A mascot is usually something animated with life (as I see it at least). We should definitely keep the n* idea. But we still need a mascot I think. Here are a few ideas I had (I suck at drawing, but it might give inspiration to some other people) : http://i.imgur.com/ZPd0VLp.jpg

Wow, that drawing is hilarious.

n* is cool. But as said from z3bra, for me a mascot is also something more than just a symbol.
