We are officially required to have a common seal for society use, and maybe ceremonial use
What should this look like?
A picture of a seal (as in sea life)? Looking common?
We need like symbols of hackness and community? Wires in place of the typical olive branches or something.
1) just what sort of ceremonies?
2) qr code that just says the name?
3) a seal looking common is a+ dadhumor
I will personally donate a plushy seal mascot
Something that is open source and easily replicable (we should put the design on thinigverse) - maybe something along the lines of these embossers for business cards (then we could use the seal for business cards as well) https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:323561)
Or it's not replicable at all - we could just make a potatoe stamp and it changes as it shrivels away <.<
I like the QR looking thing thing. Can we have a qr that's an image? because of the way they work I think you can create a qr that still works with part replaced by cool stuff... Or a thing like you drew but with the design elements made of electronics, paintbrushes, pipes, saws, etc? That would be very emblematic?
qr codes can totally include images.
I believe the seal thing is a one of a kind that shouldn't change, so official documents applications to do this and that can be stamped and other dodgy people can't apply to do dodgyness in the name of Hackland. :sweat_smile:
See tool using seal below. Hur hur.
But we are peace. Why all this violence?
It is right that the Seal is a part of our graphic identity that we won't be able to update easily. If we choose something we could want to change later it would be regretful.
Note the Hur Hur..... = Just kidding.
Besides the humans have had their turn at clubbing baby seals, it might be evolution that the seals figure out it's their turn to smack someone. Mind you they wouldn't need clubs, just bite a few Seal hunters who are out swimming, cheaper and more effective.
The Common Seal could be updated on a yearly basis is my guess when we review any changes and have to submit society accounts and any updates.
But I might be wrong.
Here you go- The Common Hydroponic Garden Variety Seal
I like the QR codes
So peeps like the seal seal? Seals are a bit violent sometimes.... but we can have a peaceful one. @helena16 Would you like to do the design maybe? I'm happy to help but I like your first draft.
