I guess it should be some whacky robot. Here is the funny one I found:

For the front page (main project site - not this forum) I thought of a robot on a bulldozer unloading question marks.

I do like this. I could try and make a few suggestions both hand-drawn (which might add a nice human touch to it) and as vector graphics if still interested? Or is the bot visible right now already a new one?

Thanks! Sure let's try different designs. I've just drawn something quickly in illustrator to replace the plain text logo. I'm not a big graphic artist :).

Great idea.. :-) Like the crazy bot concept. I'll talk to a designer friend.

I think it would be cool if it danced. An animated PNG file could do this. GIMP or Blender could create it. Artists love a blank canvas with lots of eyeballs.

dancing, maybe only occasionally :). It will be distracting most of the time.

Yes, like a mouseover javascript action. :-). So when the mouse is over the logo it kicks off the dance animation, and when it leaves, it reverts to the static image.

sure, why not. Do you have energy to create it :)?

Maybe, I had enough energy to d/l the logo. ;) I seem to be idea abundant, and code averse at the moment, but anything's possible. ;)

No promises, but a friend of mine (artist/web designer) might be willing to do a dancing robot for free. =) I might have to bribe him with a beer or coffee.

Here's an animated/interactive SVG file.

Not a robot, but interesting. =)

Why is SVG not allowed as an upload file type? I'm guessing it just runs javascript?

No SVG a Django limitation, partly for that reason. I opened a Django bug on this, and the response was that it was a reasonable request but not a priority. I think it would not be difficult to fix, and the Django devs would accept a reasonable patch. It is just not high enough up my list of priorities either. The workaround is to use FileField instead of ImageField.

actually SVG does not have 100% browser support, so any graphic components must be done using a cross-browser library, it is not a problem to make file of any format uploadable, but SVG just won't display correctly in every browser, at least at this time.

just to add, I have used FileField for uploading icons because I wanted to avoid using PIL (Python Imaging Library) - not sure if PIL is an easy to deal with dependency on all platforms. PIL is called in the ImageField of Django.

My mistake. I should have looked at the source before commenting. It is not difficult to make a browser that understands SVG show an SVG image and other browsers fall back to an alternative (I have done it before). Of course you would have too upload two logos, and its not that important IMO.

Depends on the target market, old computers, new computers, or both....web design has always had this problem. What's the point of writing a new framework for old browsers only? Just saying.

Very best idea! Have you looked at logaster.com? There already have preconceived ideas as well as where you can free yourself to create a logo. I kind of like patterns seen there.
