The logo should be simple, scalable, easy to remember, and it should remind of something related to the Raspberry Pi (small computers, raspberries, easy hacking ...). How about this mashup with the USB trident symbol (which can be used freely in contrast to the trademarked USB logos)? The symbol should be know to mean "easy pluggable computer device" also ...

Wow, was beginning to think this might never happen. I would like to congratulate the community on reaching this milestone. I like some of the subtle design cues like the circuit board traces that make up the up/down vote buttons. Given the recent meta post regarding phased graduation Can we get a tenative timeline and complete list of changes (will ...

Nano, an intelligent assistant for Raspberry Pi. The project was formerly named Echo, but it was brought to my attention that Amazon Echo had the same name. Nano is an intelligent assistant for the Raspberry Pi, similar to Jasper or Siri, but fully customizable. It uses pocketsphinx and sphinxbase for speech recognition, but it's brain is built in Python. ...

Here's another rough concept: And a more π-like version: Playing off the π idea, but with no pie.

Thank you for bringing this topic up. You are absolutely right that the tone of posts and especially comments to new users' questions sets the spirit for the whole site. We would like to be a welcoming community to those who join and seek help here. It is therefore important address this problematic behavior. The be nice policy of StackExchange is a Non-...

A slice of pie with a raspberry next to it. The location is negotiable.

I've just noticed a couple of problems with the blog: Inline code (and possibly code blocks) do not have any styling, and hence show up as normal text. It would probably be a good idea to implement this styling, given our subject. Level 3 headings (<h3>) and possibly smaller headings format as normal text Also, I may be nitpicking a bit, but would it ...

In a word, no. If the answer is not a good one, it should be downvoted. Questions can be on- or off-topic for the site, but ultimately as long as an answer addresses the question, it shouldn't be removed or disallowed. This site focuses on Raspberry Pi usage, but it wouldn't be constructive if we artificially enforced pigeon-holing solutions. A good ...

Beta status is not a matter of features, like software, rather it is a measure of developing a healthy and sustainable community. To measure this stackexchange has some statistical factors that they use to decide when to promote a site out of beta status. These factors are designed to ensure that they promote only healthy and sustainable sites. Some of the ...

YES we should, this would be useful! Not sure but we may need examples to prove we need this, plz comment or something if u spot em!

You are right and I'm as guilty as anyone of doing this. I think this comes down to the fact that ultimately, while the S.E. system is important since it is what structures the site and helps to make it as useful as possible, that form is nothing without content and hence people's priority is naturally the latter. Put another way, if someone has a quick ...

The main reason why there is a 6 (not 10) character minimum on suggested edits is because we don't want to be wasting reviewer's time. Every edit you make with <2k rep requires the time of 2 reviewers to be approved. However, when you can edit posts without approval at 2k rep, your edits are no longer reviewed by 2 people. And hence you are not wasting ...

Yes! Please do. There's no problem with that whatsoever, provided that both the question and the answer meet all the usual prerequisites. I'd perhaps add the caveat that you should be open to the possibility that someone else has an even better answer, and to keep an open mind on whose is best when it comes time to choose which is 'most right'.

Accepting an answer is a nice way to close the loop in site interaction but its much less important than you might think. This is an understandable thing to be confused about, so allow me to explain. Our engine registers a question as answered when an answer receives upvotes...not when the original poster clicks the “accept” button. Accepting an answer is ...

Steve (our other active mod, no offence to Jivings) and I were discussing this yesterday because of the failure of the Embedded proposal, and you've actually beat me to the punch on putting up a question about expanding our scope. Not exactly this question, however. I mention this because I may still put that up later this weekend, and I don't want you to ...

How to submit an article to the blog If you haven't already, go to Github and create an account Download Github Desktop from here and install it. Follow all on-screen instructions to sign in etc. Keep it open in the background. Go to the repository here and click the 'fork' button in the top right: When the repository is 'forked' to your account, click the ...

DISCLAIMER: Not sure there is a good answer to this one, but I'll take a stab at it. Also, I'm not attempting to defend the practice, merely explain it. Like you, I think its annoying that people can't put the posts where they belong, but I digress. RPi is at its heart a tinkerers paradise, halfway between a solid Linux box and micro-controller for all ...

Yes please, give us hats! I support Winter Bash 2013.
