What if every theme had its own logo?

... Is a question I had earlier, so I answered it.

Here are the logos, using each theme's colors (somewhat) appropriately.

If you wanna view or download any of the individual logos (as SVG or PNG) without the text, they're available in this repository on GitLab.

    Huh, neat idea. Works as a really quick reference guide. I'd say it's worth the cost of themes having one more step to submit, because it looks so good.

      It wouldn't even really have to be a required step, the regular logo used now could be used as a fallback in case the person submitting a new theme didn't make a logo.

        Aha. I might have misunderstood the purpose then. I was thinking this would be a very useful quick reference in the theme picker for seeing what they look like. But replacing the actual site logo...

          Oh, haha. That could be a good purpose too, although @deing has been working on an actual theme preview which will be a lot better than this I think. :P

    This is actually really nice, it'd add a cool little touch when you switch themes. Any chance this could be merged into the official site with the themes?

      It would be fairly trivial to add, it's just a matter of creating the appropriate 32x32 files (which would be very simple since I made the logos as SVGs) and adding the rule to the theming system....

        I'll think about it some. I'm not necessarily opposed to it (and I'm not particularly attached to the current logo overall), but I think I'd feel a little weird changing from the site having one...

        I'll think about it some. I'm not necessarily opposed to it (and I'm not particularly attached to the current logo overall), but I think I'd feel a little weird changing from the site having one specific logo into the "logo" basically just being a zig-zag of 8 varying colors.

        Thanks for doing it either way - interesting to see what it looks like in all the different color schemes regardless.
