I looked through the major SE sites and their logos and noticed they're quite minimalistic. So I grabbed my sketch blog and a pen. This is what I came up with: Update 1 No more beta-blue Better angles for the breaks, so people actually figure out what the letters may be. :~) Update 2 Based retailcoder's T-Shirt question Update 3 Another T-Shirt ...

status-completed It's now fixed. I like it, it's clean, unique, the blockiness is oddly satisfying, and relevant. +1 Thanks for the attention to detail. I was wondering aobut the "badge" Icon - it does not seem to have any particular significance....: Is there some way to incorporate something more code-like, a variation on {} for example? Hmm.... for ...

Excellent design, hands down. I admit I was a bit nervous as it was hard visualizing something that captured the essence of this site, but I think you've done it beautifully. Definitely worth the wait, thank you.

All lines numbers To clarify, as the question surfaced a few times, line numbers do not affect copy & paste, in other words, line numbers are not stored in the clipboard when you select the code. DRAWBACKS After some experimentation, it appears the line numbers do carry over using IE 11, but not on other browsers tested. This would make the copied ...

status-completed It's now fixed. I like this design.... well almost. What I don't like about it is the UPPERCASE LETTERS of the statistics about the question like VIEWED 123456 TIMES because it is the only occurance in the whole design where capital letters are used and it is considered as shouting what I see as a no go because we are a very friendly and ...

status-bydesign Logo has been updated to slightly different version. I think the reason why most are seeing a capital "Q" in the logo is because the leg (or the magnifying glass' handle) is too short. Here's a quick sample with a longer handle for comparison: Pretty clear what it depicts now. Anyhow, very nice job, looking forward to see it live!

Part I: "RTFM" It's bluntly obvious what the issue is, but out of nowhere, your question has 6 downvotes, is put on hold, and you're banned from asking questions. All because you asked a question on a site called Code Review. What's bluntly obvious to anyone that bothered spending 35 seconds of their lives reading the /on-topic page, is that the question ...

I actually kinda like the new site name...

First of all I really like kleinfreund's magnifying glass idea. However I think, that as programmers.SE has a logo that is not that serious, even a little funny, the coffee mug, the same could apply to codereview.SE. So what do you think about the famous code reviewing rubber duck? I am by no means a graphics designer, so please evaluate this only as an ...

I'm thinking of a more sober design, something like this:

Time was, every prompt started with a lower-case character. Life was good. Then people started complaining about specific instances. "We're a site for people studying proper English" they said, "It's important we set a good example", they claimed. Fine. The title prompt here now starts with an upper-case character.

status-completed It's now fixed. I quite like it. Will the duck be a limited series for the first two pages of https://codereview.stackexchange.com/users?tab=Reputation&filter=all, or will lesser users have a way to get one? A minor annoyance: can we please have a little more contrast on tags? I'm fine with the font shape, thickness and size but I ...

The upper-case version of a word is still the same, it's simply styling. Additionally, the following SE sites have the same style of 'shoutcase' titling: Programmers Physics Gaming Academia Area51 Chemistry Christianity Electrical Engineering English Language & Usage Graphic Design Information Security Mathematics Movies & TV Network Engineering ...

Recently, since our logo change, I've noticed an abnormal amount of down voted questions. All of these questions seem to have something to do with either code needing to be rewritten, or a bug in their code. Saying that without data (for example SEDE) to back that up, is highly speculative. While we're speculating, let me add my alternative theory. I feel ...

All because you asked a question on a site called Code Review. People seem to have different ideas about what a Code Review is. This is nothing new, and not directly related to our logo. It seems like some people just think that a "Code Review" includes answering "Why does my code not produce the errors that I want?". From wikipedia: Code review is ...

Update This problem has been submitted to Meta.StackExchange. At the time of this edit, it has not yet been resolved. Cause I done some testing on my machine, and found that I have a broken Open Sans font located in C:\Windows\Fonts. However even when I deleted this broken font it was re-acquired at some point. I'm unsure if this was due to Windows, or ...

status-completed It's now fixed and will be live after our next production build. It looks like the moderator flag queue is missing a white background:

Code block formatting @JeroenVannevel posted in The 2nd Monitor a screen capture from someone's IDE and code that I think looks really sharp and sexy, and makes code reading easier on the eyes: Or maybe at least make it look like one of the popular IDEs (Visual Studio shown): Compare to our current code blocks: That brown-turquoise-on-grey just isn't ...

Colors I may get lynched for this, but "beta blue" has become part of our identity after being in beta for so long. I personally like the the idea of keeping just a splash of it around. It shouldn't be the primary color, but it would be a nice accent. I really like some of the logos kleinfreund came up with, but gray and orange are StackOverflow's colors. ...

status-declined We have to stay consistent with arrows shape across whole network. I suggest using ++ and - - for up and down voting of questions and answers, as that is a pretty common idiom for incrementing and decrementing in code.

A quickly thrown together list of what changed, please expand as you find things that changed: Overall The Logo (and site name) got larger The top bar got smaller and the horizontal links were moved to the left-nav Site section headings lost their bold, their teal color and got quite a bit larger Grey font colors were replaced with black across the board, ...

The asymmetric bottom margin is an unfortunate combination of these CSS rules: pre { margin-bottom: 1em; } blockquote { padding: 10px; } so it could be fixed with: blockquote > pre:last-child { margin-bottom: 0; } with the following result: I note that the style sheet already has a similar rule for p elements, presumably for the same reason: ...

status-bydesign Logo has been updated to slightly different version. In the change log of the original design, it says: Better angles for the breaks, so people actually figure out what the letters may be. :~) I think that in this design, the "C" should be made to look more like a "C" by moving the breaks farther into the "R". It may just be me, but I ...

I think we make code more than slightly less wrong...

I had some free time (No actually it's 2:56 AM, way past my bed time). So I whipped this up (Not a logo,but a wallpaper). btw I'm not a graphic designer. But I know how to Google. :D Download PSD and 1920x1080 PNGs Preview Version 1 Version 2 Version 3 PS : See if you can find your username in there.

status-deferred We will consider this update probably slightly later. Code Blocks Many will remember we had discussed some potential syntax-highlighting schemes some time back, the primary post being: Code Prettify - Choose your favorite or make your own!

Code Review's gargantuan tiles were inherited from the following style rule in the site's theme: body { background-size: 280px 503px; } I guess it's technically fixed now but we won't fix it and we can't reproduce it so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Could you please look into whether this is something which might be corrected The bold, is a problem with the font. There is no CSS change that makes the text larger. And if you change the font-weight to normal, it's exactly the same as the text around it. The only fix I know for this would be to use a new typeface. However the MathJax is potentially due ...
