# Cryptography's favicon is inconsistent with larger icons

Crypto's larger icons show Cr but the favicon is CR. I suspect this is unintended (especially as the current favicon is identical with Code Review's).

• I guess it's because Cr is hard to read when using such a small font. Apr 7, 2013 at 8:25

I have updated the favicon(both for Main site and Meta). I used Ilmari Karonen's version, and made the "r" one pixel taller per Paŭlo Ebermann's suggestion.

The changes will go live after the next production build(within 24 hours). You may still have to do a hard refresh to see the changes after that.

• Let me humbly say what I think: "thank you"… (love your reading personal site btw.) Sep 8, 2013 at 5:16
• I still get CR icons (crypto.stackexchange.com/favicon.ico and meta.crypto.stackexchange.com/favicon.ico), dated 2013-09-04 15:04 and 2013-09-05 15:17 respectively. European CDN (190.93.*). Sep 10, 2013 at 11:50
• @Gilles it's cached on the server side I believe. you can see the new one if you use cache breaker url. We'll be flushing cache soon.

Generally, as CodesInChaos notes, readability is an issue for lowercase letters at such small sizes. That said, I just tried it, and it is possible to make a fairly readable "Cr" icon at that size:

(The image above is in .png format because imgur won't let me upload an .ico file.)

Anyway, let me hereby relinquish any copyright claims I might have to this image. I suppose the original copyright belongs to Stack Exchange, so if they want to use it in any way (like, say, as the new favicon for this site... hint, hint) they're welcome to do so.

• I would try to make the r even one pixel higher. But thanks for the initiative. Aug 30, 2013 at 16:01
