The wiki needs a logo.
Here's what I came up with, after a couple of hours of dinking with inkscape:
... and here are the original vector drawings, if you'd like to tweak them:
Of course, the wiki already has an unofficial mascot.
Just as a sense of style, wcwiki.org doesn't seem to say much about the contents of the wiki. I'd want something that said the full name of what it's about — i.e. Walnut Creek Wiki or something like that. Most places on the internet don't include the .com or .org in their logos, and even the odd ones that do (http://www.latimes.com/ ) include the full name. —Users/BrentLaabs
Good point, Brent. More ideas below.
(yes, it looks the same, but the black area is actually transparent w/ a black background, which means we change change the rest of the wiki style w/o hosing the logo)
