Here at Coffee Stack Exchange, we reached public beta about three days ago! This is exciting as we're slowly moving towards being a non-beta site! Graduated Stack Exchange sites have their own themes, including different icons for stuff like badges. Let's start thinking about what we'd like our site to look like: please answer this question with ideas about stuff like badge icons, downvote/upvote buttons, color themes, even the background! All ideas are appreciated!
My recommendation is that instead of the plain colored circles, there should be coffee cups. This would work great since who doesn't want a cup of coffee? This is like awarding cups of coffee to people. :-)
Downvote and Upvote Buttons
I would like to keep them just the way they are for some SE originality and it is easier to know what you are doing. If comfortable enough, there might be a green thumbs up for the upvote button and a red thumbs down for the downvote button.
I would like to be optional will variety of colors. I'm think of chocolate brown, black, brown, light brown, and all sorts of brown and coffee related colors!
Just like Area 51's alien themed background, I hope we have a coffee themed background. There would be coffee cups, coffee machines, coffee beans, steam, and a light brown paint underneath all the decorations.
Well I got nothing else. I hope this gets chosen for the new Coffee SE site stlye (if this question survives and there are multiple answers...)! Good Luck to future answers and consider the other meta question about the logo!
