I noticed that the Arqade Meta doesn't have "Meta" in its logo. Was this purposeful or accidental?

Not a top priority, but I suggest that Arqade Meta has the Meta text in its logo.

    There is a usability issue here: to someone completely colour-blind (Wikipedia says 1/30,000 people) main and meta are indistinguishable.

    @fredley Colour-blind users can still read URLs

    Looks like this was changed using the accepted answer's design, so I'm tagging as status-completed. Commented Sep 8, 2020 at 19:05

I took the liberty of creating a new vector graphic with the 'meta' included. I'm not a vector graphics pro, but using Inkscape and copying and manipulating the existing objects I was able to create something reasonable:

New Meta graphic at 200%

And a screenshot of how that will look (the vague horizontal line in the 't' has been fixed):

The SVG can be found here.

Alternatively (in response to JMac's comment):

The corresponding SVG can be found here.

    The only thing I would suggest different would be having the word meta be smaller than Arqade. I find it makes it look closer to the main site, while still making the differences obvious. This also seems to be how most sites with designs handle it.

  • Nice. I was just thinking making the word smaller, but that red box looks like a good touch to me.

  • @JMac Yeah, I think I know what you were referring to, but looking for an svg file, I found this on StackOverflow Meta, and thought it would add a nice accent.
