Re: [jox] Logo

i would prefer a black star, if only to avoid the connotations evoked by the red 
star as stefan says. seriously now, though i appreciate the time and energy that 
mathieu put into this (as well as his doing it, rather than just commenting like 
i do now), i find it kinda boring. i mean, unless we're looking for funding from 
the communist party of russia, we could do without the red star.    

as for the three-line frame, i like it, though there are things i would change. 
i'd simplify the lines by removing the zig-zag effect and instead of three 
colours, i'd use just two (for example, two lines black and one red). and a 
question: is it meant to expand in accord with the size of the text (the length 
of the page)?

Do you like it?

Well, what I definitely don't like is the red  star. This is a symbol
strongly related to classical (authoritarian)  socialism and at best
this symbol is misleading in this context. Also IMHO  for a scientific
journal it is the wrong sign becauses it conveys too much  political

What about a red " " instead? That would nicely  merge things...

Otherwise it's ok though I don't find it really  great.
