Okay, I'm gonna bring it up...

This community should select a logo, its part of the essential meta questions.

So I propose we put ideas/examples for logos here, and vote for the one we want.

Ok this community already had a logo. The Electropus, may be some robotics element should be added to it.

Edit: Here he is without the text, in high-res glory:

  • \$\begingroup\$ I think we should remove the chiphacker text. I'd do it myself, but my gimp-ery skills aren't super great. \$\endgroup\$ – J. Polfer Oct 7 '10 at 17:14

    \$\begingroup\$ I would like to think about how to add some robotics component to it as we are now Electronics & Robotics (as much as I don't like it) \$\endgroup\$ – Rick_2047 Oct 8 '10 at 4:31

    \$\begingroup\$ robotics is still electronics in my mind. If you think this really needs to be added I understand, but I think putting E&R underneath(short form or typed out) would be a good addition. \$\endgroup\$ – Kortuk Oct 8 '10 at 15:03

  • \$\begingroup\$ @Kortuk, robotics is quite more than electronics (one of the many reasons I didn't like the single robotics and electronics community concept). You have mechanical components, you have computer science components and some other components which do not have a clear domain space. \$\endgroup\$ – Rick_2047 Oct 9 '10 at 11:07
  • \$\begingroup\$ Controls, which is a boundary problem between mechanical, electrical and chemical fall into it. This community seems to be more geared towards the electrical approach to solving the problems, not saying I would ever turn away a good question. you have a lot of computer science, but with a heavy hardware aspect, in many places the domain of a computer engineer. Not saying these are set in stone, especially not the CS part, just saying, they fall in the domain of electronics in my mind. I understand your point though. \$\endgroup\$ – Kortuk Oct 11 '10 at 2:47

       Electropus as a robot?

    \$\begingroup\$ Well - your not supposed to shine them in people's eyes! I'm sure he's got one, it's probably just turned off :) \$\endgroup\$ – Jim Oct 9 '10 at 19:59

Here's the alternative Electropus from the original logo question

Here's the old Electronics Exchange logo, in case anyone likes that. I can't find a bigger version:
