Re: [jox] Logo

[Converted from multipart/alternative]

[1 text/plain]
Hi all

I am not wedded to the logo at all. it is supposed to be much bigger, as I said before, and looks kind of lost right now. I can see how the red star might evoke bad memories, though we can also reclaim misused symbols or words and reinvest them with a positive energy! ;-) In response to George below, yes I was hoping the three lines would move up and finish horizontally into the title "cspp". Obviously this would only work if we lose the green and black title and toolbar boxes: something I am personally very much in favor of.

@StefanMn: It was my understanding that you were seeking my feedback as editor regarding the journal website. I do not find the journal website great yet and outlined a number of ways to (in my view) improve it on the tech list last week. 

So far there has been no response to these suggestions so it is hard for me to figure out what your thoughts and intentions are. You might find it is not your role to take my recommendations on board. Or you might be busy on other stuff, I don't know. If you do not feel it is your role then we should have a dialogue on the tech list about how I can have a go… I can manage editing text and adding or removing pages but am not sure about skins and layout. In particular, I am worried about how to segregate changes to the journal site from other Oekonux sites; if you want to keep them the way they are. As I said in my mail last week, I don't think its a bad thing for the journal to have its own identity.

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 

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