Most aspects seem very nice to me, and many thanks to the team for the work! But is there any chance of getting the Φ in the masthead “PHILΦSOPHY” changed?
This is the one criticism which was mentioned as feedback on the draft, by Wrzlprmft in comments (albeit rather politely, which I fear led to its getting overlooked). It’s really jarring for anyone who reads Greek — Φ isn’t some kind of decorative O, it’s a totally different letter, roughly equivalent to English PH. (Which is why the standalone Φ/φ is a great logo: to a broad audience it evokes classical Greek, but for those in the know, it’s also the initial letter of philosophy.) This is like if Russian Language stackexchange had ЯUSSIAИ in its masthead.
To most people seriously interested in philosophy, this pretty clearly stands out as designed/chosen by people who don’t know the field well or care about getting things right. It’s not a great first impression for the site to give.
[I realise I’m a little late here, and I’m not a power user on this site by any means. But these posts seem to have had very little visibility — currently just 189 views on this announcement and 210 on the draft feedback post — so I hope the admins aren’t considering the feedback window totally closed.]
