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 The Vaccinated 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', '//cdn.sstatic.net/' + 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.)
