While we'd prefer seeing every project on Ohloh have its own unique logo, sometimes a project just doesn't have one yet. That's why we've added default logos to choose from.
We realize the current choices are incomplete. This is where you fit in: please suggest or consider contributing your own. Use this thread to discuss/post ideas on this feature. Thanks!
As with the existing generic console app logo, I'd suggest a generic GUI app logo as well; it seems like the most obvious missing choice. For the image, how about something like scalable/apps/preferences-system-windows.svg from gnome-icon-theme, found at http://svn.gnome.org/svn/gnome-icon-theme/trunk/scalable/apps/preferences-system-windows.svg ?
Hmmm, come to think of it, the GPL that applies to this image actually does come into play, since you'll distribute a PNG rather than the original SVG source.
You might want a "generic server application" icon. For instance, something like http://svn.gnome.org/svn/gnome-icon-theme/trunk/scalable/places/network-workgroup.svg .
I suggest something for generic LaTeX package.
I'd like to put in my vote for a Perl module/project default icon.
The plug style looks great, so options for images to put into the plug include:
Using the camel or onion marks may require permission from O'Reilly or The Perl Foundation respectively, but in my experience the chance of them refusing is vanishingly small.
@bollwyvl: Thanks for the submission - I added it right away.
@pjf: Thanks for the options. I went with the Onion logo (and sent mail to the perl foundation). Here's what it looks like .
@anmaster: Care to submit an example of what LaTeX plugin would look like?
Oh Jason, you are wonderful. ;) If you need help with The Perl Foundation, do let me know.
How about a logo for a game?
I'd like to have a default image for Chicken Scheme eggs (extension libraries). I think the generic egg image used in the Chicken eggdoc output is a good choice. The "plug" icon is starting to look boring already (lots of projects using it), so just use the egg on its own :)
hi, maybe a logo to php software ?
My vote is for C# or .Net whichever.
Another vote for a C# logo.
Greetings y'all! I added:
Happy to add more - but please try to be as specific as possible (ie: link to what to use, and for what use).
There isn't one for regular PHP applications, so I add my vote for PHP.
Can you add https://s3.amazonaws.com/bits.ohloh.net/attachments/17882/mw-ohloh_med.png for MediaWiki extensions?
Also, do you have SVN version of the plug?
Hi, could you add https://s3.amazonaws.com/bits.ohloh.net/attachments/33038/Hippo--Component--Logo-and-Text-64pxmedmed_med.gif for Hippo extensions/addons, like: https://www.ohloh.net/p/hippo-plugin-contentblocks or https://www.ohloh.net/p/hippo-plugin-relateddocs kind regards, Mathijs Brand
I think it would be really used to have a generic 'X' plugin for XML, XSLT, XQuery and related XML technologies
how about defaulting to an icon for the primary language of the project
ie php,python,ruby etc
