New MediaWiki logo: Second round of voting started

By |September 28th, 2020|0 Comments

The decision for a new MediaWiki logo is now entering the decisive round. There are different variants of the winner of the first round to choose from: Should it appear in a completely new colour, continue in the Wikimedia colours or the existing yellow of the sunflower? In addition, it is also about a new spelling of MediaWiki. The choice is between keeping the traditional CamelCase spelling or a more modern lowercase spelling.

Votes can be cast until 24 October 2020. Click here to go to the project page and vote.
