I didn't like the old logo for this and replaced it with the girl in robotux, I hope that's ok. I think it sends a nicer message :) [[User:Piawaugh|Piawaugh]] 21:22, 9 February 2009 (UTC)

:: Uh, as far as I am aware, that logo is (a) copyright Valerie Aurora Henson and (b) only licenced by Val for use in LinuxChix circumstances, see http://www.linuxchix.org/linuxchix-logo.html I don't see that we can use it here without her express permission. And even if we did I am not sure LinuxChix would be thrilled (it's their logo after all, not a multipurpose women-geek logo), although their displeasure doesn't have legal force that I'm aware of. I'll check in with Val. [[User:Thayvian|Thayvian]] 06:21, 10 February 2009 (UTC)
 
:: For reference the old logo was [[:Image:Whack.gif]] [[User:Thayvian|Thayvian]] 06:27, 10 February 2009 (UTC)
 
:: I've checked with Val, and she has released it CC BY-SA. So that angle is sorted. I will update the image upload. [[User:Thayvian|Thayvian]] 03:26, 11 February 2009 (UTC)

Maybe we need some kind of Village Pump (Wikipedia equivalent) for general site discussions? Meanwhile, I'll stick a potential topic here: the old "I don't see gender"/"aren't you the sexists here, saying women want different things from men?" etc etc angle. Or is that too Feminism 101? Can we come up with a geek specific aspect to it? (FLOSSPOLS did describe the geek mindset as particularly individualistic and skeptical of claims that individuals are influenced by culture.)

*"Cleaning up the Gaming Section" was moved to [[Talk:Meta:Community Portal/Cleaning up the Gaming section]]
: Re: a forum, yes, I think the time has come. Wikia has some facilities for setting up forums here. I'll see to it. One of the things I think we need to do in relation to that is change the "welcome" message that comes out, laying out guidelines etc. I'll see what I can come up with and let you know. Re: common myths, yeah, maybe a [[Myths]] page? I don't think it's too 101 at all, though I do think that links to the "finally, a feminism 101 blog" would be appropriate. It would be easy to give geek examples for the most common myths. --[[User:Skud|Skud]] 19:09, 18 June 2009 (UTC)

*"Concerns" was moved to [[User talk:84.74.106.21]]
:: Forums: IMHO, having tried them out a bit, the forums are a PITA and I don't like them. I vote we use the Community Portal's "Talk" page for general discussions. We can archive off threads onto their own pages as they need it. --[[User:Skud|Skud]] 19:57, 18 June 2009 (UTC)

== Concerns ==
 
 
''The discussion here (excerpt: "... the geek feminism wiki ... feels like someone is tying a rope to the past and present to make it harder to move forward.") is a [[Feminism 101 discussions|101 discussion]] and has been moved to [[User talk:84.74.106.21]]'' [[User:Thayvian|Thayvian]] 10:16, 19 August 2009 (UTC)
 
 
== Cleaning up the Gaming Section ==
 
Question. Should I sit down and make a cleaner Gaming section? Stick a larger gaming splash page and then link to the existing other pages? [[User:Koipond|Koipond]] 05:33, 19 August 2009 (UTC)
 
:Not sure what you mean by a splash page (in this context)? Do you mean a big image somehow? Or something else? [[User:Thayvian|Thayvian]] 10:31, 19 August 2009 (UTC)
 
:: Just a page where you can find gaming in general and then go off into the various areas like Video Gaming, Roleplaying, etc. [[User:Koipond|Koipond]] 09:04, 22 August 2009 (UTC)
