Site logo?

Post by Jacob Rhoden » February 20th, 2015, 11:10 pm

Can I propose we have some sort of logo competition or something? (: Or am I the only person who gets confused by distinct lack of branding, possibly the "phpBB" logo up the top? :D

We actually do have/have had a B-Greek logo that was conjured up ages ago by Jonathan Robie - a neat little corner of what looks like the upper left-hand page of papyrus with uncial script letters spelling out "ΕΝΑΡΧΗΗΝΟΛ" for "ἐν ἀρχῇ ἦν ὁ λ[όγος]". Ιt used to be up there where now you see only the "phpBB" logo up at the top; it disappeared after some software upgrade. You can view it (and some ancient history!) on a surviving page displaying information from the old B-Greek mailing list: http://www.ibiblio.org/bgreek/index.html. I wonder if there's any reason in the world why that logo couldn't be restored to its rightful place.

The logo looks like this:

I just tried (and failed) to restore it from the Montreal airport. I'll give it another try in the next few days.

I concur with Jacob about branding. Having the logo in the header for every page of this forum would be great!
