Other graphic?[edit]

Thanks for creating this, DASonnenfeld. I'm wondering if another graphic might be better, however. My concern is that the graphic is the symbol for the World citizen badge and that it might be interpreted by some as advocating a specific worldview of or stance on globalization. Can we find something a bit less POV oriented? Regards, Meclee (talk) 20:05, 19 June 2013 (UTC)

Sure... I agree, there may be a better one, for the reason you state. Kind regards, DA Sonnenfeld (talk) 20:08, 19 June 2013 (UTC)

Two possibilities:

Globe Atlantic
Mercator Globe 1541 SA

I like the more abstract 'Mercator Globe', but the other may be more recognizable. What do you think? Meclee (talk) 16:18, 20 June 2013 (UTC)

Yes, I like the transparency of that globe so that all the continents are visible. Let's go with it! Regards, Meclee (talk) 23:03, 20 June 2013 (UTC)

Okay, let's give it a try... Kind regards, DA Sonnenfeld (talk) 00:37, 21 June 2013 (UTC)
Looks good! Meclee (talk) 00:41, 21 June 2013 (UTC)

Getting cluttered[edit]

Hi, I would suggest removing both the Commons and WikiProject links from this sidebar. Neither are necessary in my opinion, and both detract from the sidebar's elegant simplicity. "Tangential information should be kept out of sidebars" (WP:NAV). Thanks, DA Sonnenfeld (talk) 01:22, 20 August 2013 (UTC)

Fixed. Better? Thanks, DA Sonnenfeld (talk) 10:05, 28 August 2013 (UTC)
