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

I was signing up for Software Recommendations and realized that a unicorn stole their logo! We need to get it back! Really, the logo is missing when you sign up on SR, and I don't know if this is a universal bug or just here. Also, I did get an error a few seconds later (it should be recorded), so it might be related to that. Edit: It is on all betas; it isn't just my problem.

Note to SE team: if needed I can give the URL that has problems... it should show things like what I was trying to sign up with/verification codes, etc. if you want that.

This is on all beta sites - not sure why. – hichris123 Apr 2 '14 at 0:14
@hichris Has it been documented before? – Anonymous Penguin Apr 2 '14 at 0:15
Not that I know of, just from personal experience. – hichris123 Apr 2 '14 at 0:16
How dare you blame unicorns! They are pure, innocent creatures! – Blue Ice Apr 2 '14 at 1:26
@BlueIce I never said they were wrong in doing so! They had the right to do so! :) However, I think we should at least create another one... – Anonymous Penguin Apr 2 '14 at 2:03
Appears to be same bug reported here, was fixed for user profiles and site lists but not in that specific location. Good catch! :) – Shadow Wizard Apr 3 '14 at 22:43

AFAICT, this issue no longer applies, since the site logo is no longer shown on the confirmation page at all. – Ilmari Karonen Jul 16 '15 at 21:09

The recently released Stack Overflow Unofficial Patch v1.14 includes a client-side fix for this issue. For the curious, here's the code that implements it:

if ( !/^\/users\/(login|signup)\b/.test( location.pathname ) ) return;
    'src', '//' + location.hostname.split('.')[0] + '/img/icon-48.png'

(Yes, I'm aware that location.hostname.split('.')[0]would not yield the correct site name on per-site metas. Fortunately, you can't actually log in on a per-site meta; if you try, you get redirected to the main site login page.)
