[We have the opportunity](https://topanswers.xyz/transcript?room=347&id=19710#c19710) to choose our own icon for community wiki posts at TopTeX. It will be used for post like [About TopTeX](https://topanswers.xyz/tex?q=716).

I think this calls for a little contest :)

Please add your answers until Feb, 29th

P.S. We just need an image, so LaTeX sources are not necessary (but I don't think anybody will complain, if they are included in an answer :) )

We could use the same icon as for your chat room. The tophat in the code below looks a bit nicer than the one from the chatroom, but I'm sure we can ask to unify both


\documentclass[margin=0.3mm]{standalone}
\usepackage{tikz}
\definecolor{dred}{RGB}{159,57,61}
\pagecolor{white}

\begin{document}
\begin{tikzpicture}
\begin{scope}[transform shape,rotate=-17.5,font=\sffamily]

% brim
\fill[black] (0.62, 0.66) .. controls (0.62, 0.52) and (0.34, 0.37) .. (0, 0.37) .. controls (-0.34, 0.37) and (-0.62, 0.52) .. (-0.62, 0.66) .. controls (-0.62, 0.8) and (-0.34, 0.7) .. (0, 0.7) .. controls (0.34, 0.7) and (0.62, 0.8) .. (0.62, 0.66) -- cycle;

% top ellipse
\fill[black] (0,1.13) ellipse (0.42 and 0.1);
\fill[black] (-0.37,0.61) -- (0.37,0.61) -- (0.42,1.13) -- (-0.42,1.13) -- cycle;

% bottom ellipse
\fill[dred] (0,0.61) ellipse (0.37 and 0.1);
\fill[dred] (-0.37,0.61) -- (0.37,0.61) -- (0.38,0.73) -- (-0.38,0.73) -- cycle;

% cutout
\fill[black] (0,0.73) ellipse (0.38 and 0.1);

% text
\node[white] at (-0.2,0.92) {T};
\node[white] at (-0.04,0.84) {E};
\node[white] at (0.16,0.92) {X};

\end{scope}
\end{tikzpicture}
\end{document}


The result would then look like https://topanswers.xyz/tex?q=606

Does it have to be drawn in something \*TeX-ish? If not, here's a thought...

![tex-ta-logo0.png](/image?hash=fa3d43a1999b8321ac24769a81baf0baf0391bdc76f285f5b68b58e0afb44dda)

That's just the TA "logo" with three question marks placed to suggest the TeX identity. I thought I chose the ? strategically (is it from "erewhon"?) but it doesn't scale down so well. Here's 24x24px:

Oh well! Just for the banter in any case! :grin: It was "drawn" in Inkscape, so there is an SVG ... not that anyone would want it.

No special symbol for TopTeX community wiki, instead use the global symbol (which is currently shown as Earth)

Enter question or answer id or url (and optionally further answer ids/urls from the same question) from

Separate each id/url with a space. No need to list your own answers; they will be imported automatically.
