You know how on Wikimedia projects they have those little button icons at the bottoms of the wikis saying 'a wikimidia project'? We should totally do that too, link back here, bring folks together, yadda yadda etc I don't even know.

I made two buttons, though (and the term 'uncyclomedia' is way too long, for the record):

Uncyclomedia not 88x31.png Uncyclomedia 88x31.png

Any project could potentially use either, or different versions (say, in the proper languages, which is something, I might add, that the high and mighty Wikimedia are apparently above doing themselves). Un-en is using the not currently, although it might be funnier to put it the other way, now that I think about it. Make that one say that it is, and UnMeta say that it isn't... that could give the few folks who notice an interesting double-take, at least. ~ Pointy.png 00:52, 4 February 2012

Aaaand I just noticed these wikis are still using the old icons... although that's easier to change than what's there, just update the file in the skins/common/... not that adding new ones is difficult, either, fpr instance just add the imaage and put something like this to the settings file:

$wgFooterIcons['copyright']['uncyclomedia'] = array(
        "src" => "$wgStylePath/common/images/uncyclomedia_88x31.png.png",
        "url" => "http://meta.uncyclomedia.org/",
        "alt" => "An Uncyclomedia project",
);
Or something. ~ Pointy.png 00:57, 4 February 2012
I like idea of using button. Recently, I found this image in UnCommons and decided to use it (see uk:) by adding it to MediaWiki code (but it does not have "alt" and "url"). --This user is administrator of Ukrainian Uncyclopedia. Vox 17:56, 4 February 2012 (UTC)
This was proposed earlier. See Forum:Seal_for_Uncyclomedia. I also like the idea, but each wiki should decide for its own or may custmise the button.
But how can this be integrated in the #p-footer in Vector? Cartoonist | Spit it out (talk) | E-mail | UnMeta | 19:34, 5 February 2012 (UTC)
