TopAnswers needs an icon to represent itself on the Internet. It is necessary to have more than some word "TopAnswers" in the header, in my opinion.


Similarly, each community needs one such icon.

The current icon, which is used throughout the site across every community is the [favicon]( of the site, which looks like this

![auxiliary.ico](/image?hash=71e10e45ba6c3f43b333bfab3a8eb6cf855eaf51b795f22028b2288f85720411) (16 × 16)

I can't find a larger version.

Do you think this icon will be a good representative of TopAnswers, or do you think a different one will do better? What is your opinion on this?

Another "T" and an "A" overlaid:

Answer #2
How about a "T" and an "A" overlaid:

It incorporates the name, while also showing an up-arrow to the top bar.
Answer #3
### The TA Triangle Revised

Just an attempt to spruce up the current favicon:


I have no investment in the colour choice! Just thinking out loud...


*commentary*: I have some half-baked ideas about icon/logo alternatives for TA. I will post them here, thus exposing my creative deficit and lack of skills with graphics tools. The ones I will post here have been created in Inkscape, fwiw.

Consider these as the roughest of concept mock-ups....

Answer #4
### The TA "Interrobang"

I feel that the TA concept is well captured in this crafty little [punctuation mark][1]:


The colours are traffic-light red-gold-green, with some hazy metaphor of getting a "green light"... I dunno.

But the `!` + `?` mashup I thought made a good representation for a Q&A site. The character I've used here (bold and tweaked, not only for colour) comes from the lovely [Vollkorn][v] font, btw.

Answer #5
The last couple of months, I thought the current TopAnswers logo would be an homage at some traffic sign. Only after reading I realised that the blue triangle used to be the voting symbol.

Long story short, this made me think if maybe a combination of a question mark with the current voting icon, a star, would work:

(in whatever colour you like)
Answer #6
### `@` Backwards is TA


The `@` symbol is sometimes pronounced "at". "at" backwards is TA. The triangle motif sitting atop it is meant to reflect the answer's trajectory, rising to the top. This horizontally flipped and doctored `@` comes from [Andika New Basic][a].

No investment in colours, but they're in the neighbourhood of what Jack has for the current favicon.
