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

The icon is exactly the same as It's a problem when multiple tabs are open--it is not easy distinguish between SO and CSO. Merely a different shade than the SO orange would do the trick.

Grey, of course is out, seemingly being the official MSO color.

Brown, the color of both waffles and ponies (conspiracy?) is too close to grey.

Green. I like green. It's my favorite color.

Pink, as it's also for people who have been pink-slipped? (bad pun, but someone had to make it)

What about blue? There are not enough blue logos in the computer industry.

Breaking news! IBM just bought SO!

This just in! Google and Microsoft might be pulling their checks out to but SO out of IBM!

Blue is Super User, though. Do you really want two SO family sites to have a blue logo? – Thomas Owens Oct 8 '09 at 0:09
When did IBM buy SO? :-) – Michael Stum Oct 8 '09 at 0:19
You got the color order wrong for your Google joke. – Super Long Names are Hilarious Oct 8 '09 at 1:23
It could have been a Microsoft joke :) I missed one blue, that I frankly didn't know how to cramp in there. – perbert Oct 8 '09 at 1:37

I thought about this, but I'm not sure how to distinguish it. While I (cough) appreciate (cough) voyager's design skills, I need to come up with a concept.

Remember it is a subdomain:

so you could argue that it's tightly related to SO, with the acct association, and all, and should have the same favico.

But, is a subdomain, uses the same OpenID and has a different favicon. – Henri Watson Oct 8 '09 at 3:05
Just a different shade is all, me thinks. Like MSO. I'm not suggesting a totally different logo, just tweak the color of the favicon.ico so that CSO tabs are visibly different from SO tabs. – Stu Thompson Oct 8 '09 at 9:12
Can we also consider this for chat? With rooms, meta questions, rooms about meta questions and browser tabs, its getting a little difficult to navigate :) – Tim Post Aug 4 '10 at 10:12
