According to the Top 7, we need to select a CAPTCHA image, which is the image that gets shown over most in-site CAPTCHA prompts.

So please submit your proposals as answers to this question.

    Reading that page, I don't see any mention of a CAPTCHA. Could you clarify where it says we need this and exactly what it is? Commented Aug 1, 2010 at 13:32

    @mac9416 I think it is the image that shows up when the website asks us to solve a captcha. There is the "Captcha image" on the top and the captcha right below it.

  • There is advice on selecting a logo and absolutely nothing about CATCHA at this time in the Top 7 post.

  • Please keep the Ubuntu Brand Guidelines in mind when using the Ubuntu logo.

Have a look at the proposed design, making use of our pictogram artwork.

Hopefully, in a bit of a playful way :)

Looking forward to your comments.

Please leave some comments too and it's just a prototype

  • Maybe we should change Robots to either Machines or Computers.

    The exclamation point seems a little aggressive. I think a regular period would be better.

    Now have the circle of people (ubuntu logi-ish) except one is being pulled out by a cop for being a robot (an obvious robot). LARP style too, no drawings here, I want photos! Commented Sep 30, 2010 at 19:39
  • This is okay, but it's a bit boring really... I mean it's just text... (although it is a bit funny)

I though using something from Cowsay would offer a little bit of humor!


Here is a little something I started with the model I got here:

Maybe we can put a funny phrase on the sign like "Penguins Only" or something... ideas are welcome.

  • I like it! the gunny phrase could be: "Hello fellow penguin, please identify yourself as a penguin" or something like it.

  • @txwikinger: Hmmm. That's a good idea, except the sign is kind-of small and couldn't have a large phrase on it. Commented Aug 3, 2010 at 23:56
  • What about: "Fellow pinguin, please identify!"

    Ugh. Remember the goal: More people using the system. This feels like the geekiest joke imaginable to me.
