Proposed designs:

Proposal 1

Event Timeline

I'd suggest not making anything on the current logo.. But also, gotta be careful as the new logo isn't fully (legally in terms of transfer of ownership) approved...

So if you want to create one based on the proposed new MW logo, it should be fine, but you probably don't want to roll it out just yet!

yeah, we are waiting for wmf legal to clear it (and transfer copyright and file it for trademark registration) and it's been going on for four months already... Waiting for it to be finished first.

Can you clarify just in case, these are different logos for docker and for default logo (https://github.com/wikimedia/mediawiki/blob/master/resources/assets/wiki.png)? Or is it the same thing? :)

I am proposing a logo to be used for developers who set up MediaWiki-Docker (https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/MediaWiki-Docker), not the default logo for MediaWiki (T268230). MediaWiki-Vagrant does something similar with setting a logo for the site(s) it creates.

Is the logo on commons? I want to use it as a good example in https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:MediaWiki_logo_guidelines

It's not; @RHo would it be OK put on Commons? (Or maybe that's something you have to do as the creator of the image, not sure)

No worries, I've added 2 proposed logos to Commons:

Wonderful, thank you! 🙏

Added to the guideline. Thanks!

It can move forward now, the logo has changed.

Update the logo of mediawiki at wikipedia.org homepage. I created a new task T279398

Is use of the Docker name and trademark icon/wordmark in this way something we can legally do?

It might be simpler to instead replace our default logo file that currently says "Please set wgLogos", with a decent image that is sufficiently presentable and prefessional-looking to leave as is on a public wiki (the current one looks pretty unprofessional if left that way by a site admin), which we can then also use during MediaWiki development. It would naturally apply to mediawiki-docker, mediawiki-docker-dev, as well as any other local web server one might use without needing a dedicated logo for each.

Perhaps the "installer" logo is suitable for adopting more broadly as a "development" logo?

Good point. From https://www.docker.com/legal/trademark-guidelines seems to say "no":

The Docker’s registered, unregistered and pending logos, including the Docker “Moby Dock” whale logo, as well as other design elements such as characters and container images, may be taken only from Docker’s product sheet or from Docker’s service screen shot following authorization from us. Do not create imitations, facsimiles or reproductions of these design elements on your own. The design elements may only appear with the words, logotype, graphic elements and spacing which Docker has previously approved for use and may not be modified, recombined or displayed in modified scenes, images or other artwork.

That sounds good to me.

I like the idea of having a general logo that basically doesn't scream "CHANGE ME" but the installer logo is very similar to the wikitech one (T279087: Update the logo for wikitech.wikimedia.org to mirror the new MediaWiki logo) and it might create confusion.

Maybe the first proposal of the wikitech logo (that won't likely be chosen and it's quite different?)

Yeah, the all-empty outlines seems clearer to me. I'd propose that for both default and installer.

I think that we have as installer-logo now is too similar to the official MediaWiki logo, which might be problematic also if we want to protect that as a trademark when we are encouraging everyone to use it by default. So making it more difficult/transparent overall seems useful to me.

MediaWiki logoCurrent installer logo"Empty leafs" (aka Wikitech variant 1)

Okay, so some ideas:

  1. Use "Empty leafs" as default/local logo, incl in the installer.
  2. Use "Empty leafs" as default/local logo, and show the official proper MediaWiki logo in the installer (instead of the current hybrid).
  3. Use "Empty leafs" as default/local logo, and show the current hybrid in the installer.

Use "Empty leafs" as default/local logo, and show the current hybrid in the installer.

Yeah, i thought of something similar, when i was drawing the wireframe version of a logo.
