While I could eventually figure out that I was in Meta and not Parent, I found myself wondering for a few seconds....I think that the design should specifically include the word meta.

I hereby suggest paying our homage to Knuth by using META with the METAFONT font: alt text

  • I like that idea, although METATEX might be clearer from a site-name perspective, especially for people who don't already know what Metafont is. – Antal Spector-Zabusky Nov 12 '10 at 23:21

    I was thinking of adding the word META as a emblem like they did in other sites, only use the METAFONT font.... – Yossi Farjoun Nov 12 '10 at 23:31
  • Aha, I misunderstood. Carry on, then :-) – Antal Spector-Zabusky Nov 12 '10 at 23:39

    +1, I'm convinced. Either META or METATEX would be fine with me. – Charles Stewart Nov 13 '10 at 8:54

I have updated the Meta header, the change will be in the next deployment.

Here's what it's supposed to look like, in case you get a cached old version

I decided to put it in the same position as Parent site's fleuron, this way when you switch between the parent and meta, the {TEX} logo stays at the same location.

    Nice: subtle enough not to jar, but clear enough to make the point – Joseph Wright Nov 15 '10 at 21:36
  • I like it...Thanks Jin!! – Yossi Farjoun Nov 15 '10 at 22:26

Ah, good idea -- we usually do update the logo to include the word "meta" so we can use whatever font you like!
