Although we haven’t made much progress on the domain name discussion, I don’t think it necessarily too soon to start talking about site design and logo ideas. Does anyone have any strong ideas about what visual elements our site about English Language and Usage should have?
Just to throw some ideas out there, a few possible theme directions — I don't necessarily even like these ideas as-is (as-are?), but maybe they will get the ball rolling and lead to better ideas:
dictionary-ish style, e.g. a classic serif font for the title and menus (probably serif everywhere would be overkill), maybe some IPA, part-of-speech, definition stuff sprinkled here and there
etymology theme, e.g. Germanic branch of the language tree, Old English/Middle English
revision theme, e.g. stuff like this
I am trying to think of more abstract visual themes, but we're talking about language, so nothing obvious comes to mind.
Note: these have been split into individual entries in case people want to vote on them.
