Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Well, one possible solution is giving background color to the parent div when oneboxing site logo, e.g. with blue background the result is: – Shadow Wizard Aug 19 '15 at 11:10
@ShadowWizard But then what about blue logos? :-P The best solution, as far as I can tell, is to use a colour from the api, or just use the icon_url and text name instead. – fredley Aug 19 '15 at 11:15
Good point @fredley, was just looking for a quick and not-so-elegant fix that might be implemented faster. – Shadow Wizard Aug 19 '15 at 11:19
