Feedback for the new community icon

I’ve tentatively decided to use a stylized copyleft logo for /c/libre_culture, which you can see here:

I went with something simple so it’s still recognizable even if it’s small. I chose a green one because Libre culture is also partly an environmentalist ideology, as it promotes repairing instead of replacing. It’s also a similar colour to the Open Source Initiative logo, as the two ideologies are related and overlap. Plus, the green logo provides good contrast with almost any theme, whereas a darker colour would be harder to see in dark mode, and a lighter colour would be harder to see in light mode.

Here are some runner-ups that I considered:

What do you think? Do you like it, do you like one of the runner-ups better, or do you think I should have went with something else entirely?

I really like the green, I think it’s much more fitting for the movement even if I think the yellow looks a little cooler.

I like all of these, but the green one works for the community the best, I would say.

What is libre culture?

Libre culture is all about empowering people. While the general philosophy stems greatly from the free software movement, libre culture is much broader and encompasses other aspects of culture such as music, movies, food, technology, etc.

Some beliefs include but aren’t limited to:

  • That copyright should expire after a certain period of time.
  • That knowledge should be available to people, not locked away.
  • That no entity should have unjust control or possession of others.
  • That mass surveillance is about mass control, not justice.
  • That we can all band together to help liberate each other.

Rules

I’ve looked into the ways other forums handle rules, and I’ve distilled their policies down into two simple ideas.

  • Please show common courtesy: Let’s make this community one that people want to be a part of.

  • Please keep posts generally on topic

  • No NSFW content

  • When sharing a Libre project, please include the name of its license in the title. For example: “Project name and summary (GPL-3.0)”

Libre culture is a very very broad topic, and while it’s perfectly okay for a conversation to stray, I do ask that we keep things generally on topic.
