Rebranding the MantisBT favicon with FreeCAD

Postby Kunda1 » Wed Oct 24, 2018 11:14 am

I know this is superficial but maybe someone would have the time and wants an opportunity to express their creativity ?
When I'm going through the FC bugtracker and I have many tabs open it shows the mantisbt favicon Image
I was wondering if first the community was OK with this and if anyone wanted to rebrand the favicon to some cool fusion of the Mantis and FreeCAD logo?

The fact that it was showing the MantisBT favicon was a bug because I forgot to re-upload the favicon from the last update. Still, it'd be nice to have some sort of fusion so that the forum, wiki, and tracker can be differentiated.
Like my FreeCAD work? I'd appreciate any level of support via Patreon, Liberapay, or PayPal! Read more about what I do at my blog.

16x16? With my eyesight?

On a more serious note, if the desired end result is a series of different sized png images, then there is probably a better workflow than the one I used (mantis bitmap -> svg, (mantis svg + FC svg) -> png). The mantis logo loses a bit of detail in the conversion.

Then again, this isn't going to hang in the Louvre any time soon.
