Description Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason 2005-04-02 18:32:03 UTC
MediaWiki doesn't have a default favicon.ico currently, something with the
MediaWiki flower should probably be made, I tried but that image doesn't scale
very well down to 16x16 px.
Comment 1 Michael Keppler 2005-04-05 21:26:18 UTC
There is a favicon with the MediaWiki flower available on the MediaWiki
sourceforge site, but I don't know anything about the copyright of it:
Comment 2 Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason 2005-04-05 21:34:16 UTC
Brion appears to be responsible for putting it there:

Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2005-04-05 22:02:00 UTC
People should always provide their own logos and icons, unless they're running MediaWiki's own web site.
Comment 4 Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason 2005-04-06 18:17:35 UTC
I disagree, we already provide a the MonoBook logo as the default wiki.png,
unless you're proposing that we replace that with a transparent PNG of the same
size this would only be an extension of the current interface which provides
some sane defaults which can be replaced later.

Furthermore even if this doesn't make it into the default user interface we
should still replace the current skins/common/images/favicon.ico which is the
favicon used on Wikimedia websites (see with something more
Comment 5 Brion Vibber 2005-04-06 21:42:43 UTC
skins/common/images/favicon.ico isn't used for anything, I have no idea why it was there.
