I don't know what the Math Stack Exchange logo is and was wondering if we (the users) could post ideas on a new one and have users vote for the best one... Is that a possibility or no?

    $\begingroup$ Shouldn't you first figure out what the current one is? Hint: It's to the left of the big "MATHEMATICS". $\endgroup$ Jul 1, 2013 at 19:03

    $\begingroup$ @Michael: I read it as "I see the current logo, and I don't know what that symbol or object is". $\endgroup$ Jul 1, 2013 at 19:11

    $\begingroup$ @Zev Now I feel stupid. $\endgroup$ Jul 1, 2013 at 19:13
  • $\begingroup$ Ok ok guys, so what does the current logo represent/mean? $\endgroup$ Jul 1, 2013 at 19:15

    $\begingroup$ See the "logo" section in this thread, from when the design of the site was in development. $\endgroup$ Jul 1, 2013 at 19:19

    $\begingroup$ For what it's worth, I don't really like it either. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Back in the days, users posted their ideas for site logo and name. If you think the logo is bad, consider what it could have been... $\endgroup$ Jul 2, 2013 at 0:01
  • $\begingroup$ So it seems like it was a bit of an off-the-cuff design... Searching Google Images for "math logo" shows that it's a hard problem in general. I only like the wireframe heart with the axes through it. The mathematics community seems to be either notoriously unenthusiastic or to have abysmally poor taste when it comes to logo design (but usually very enthusiastic about complaining that the subject is such a hard sell to students :) $\endgroup$ Aug 14, 2014 at 2:38

The logo is a set of $6$ red cubes arranged as shown below.

    $\begingroup$ It seems to me that the cubes are arranged in a way that couldn't actually occur in three dimensions. I wonder if this was intentional. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Actually this logo looks like many rules of this site: a little unclear ;) $\endgroup$
