From Homestar Runner Wiki

"Quit rubbing that plastic bar of soap on the desk!"
See the original, very long discussion.

In late 2006, the decision was made to redesign the wiki logo. In the end, a modified version of the original logo was chosen: Homestar Runner grinning in front of an Old New Intro-style background and blinking once every twenty-five seconds. More information about this process is available at HRWiki:A History#Logo. An archive of the completed discussion is available here.

Below are some of the logo designs that were created and considered in this process.
