I would definitively prefer a design related to real robotics rather than science fiction robotics, because the page is about real robotics and therefore we should make that impression and appearance. Moreover, I agree with the point that real robotics often do not look that esthetic. Therefore I suggest an abstract design, where typical parts of robots are ...

Generally, sites with the beta theme get their initials in a cartoon question bubble. The primary reason is that we create several sites a month so we need an easy-to-produce design icon consistent with the beta theme and the other sites on the network. If you look through the list of sites, you'll notice the occasional beta favicon that's not in the Latin ...

1) I think Sci-fi, done with elegance, could be inspiring and non-invasive. Real robots at the moment tend to be overly complicated (visually) and SE generally does a good job of getting the site design 'out of the way' 2) Personally, I'd like to avoid military imagery 3) I think specific logos should be avoided where possible. 4) Kit pieces and ...

We shouldn't be closing questions which are on-topic here, just because they are drone questions, but if Drones Stack Exchange takes off, we may find people prefer it even for questions which are on-topic here. For details of what our current policy on which drone questions are considered on-topic here, have a look at the info page for any of the uav auv ...

I think that the real question is, are there enough on-topic questions to support a drone site? The problem I've seen with drone questions in general are that they're generally off-topic. The bulk of the questions I've seen about drones are people looking for design questions. If it starts, "How do I..." then the question is probably off topic. Person A ...

My understanding is that we would need to be a substantially more active site for it to be worth Stack Exchange spending the time and effort to graduate us. See the When Will My Site Graduate? blog post and the Be clearer on what a beta site needs to graduate question over on meta. For the moment we should probably just be grateful that we haven't been ...

The reality is the majority of work benches for robotics are not the most glamorous of things, usually a computer and a soldering iron surrounded by various parts in a garage somewhere, probably try and defer from that :P I'd say using Sci-Fi robots is fine. I'm assuming we are going to go for a professional style. Personally I'm actually a big fan of the ...

There is now the Drones Stack Exchange.

I was thinking of a sidebar featuring: Latest jobs in Robotics (similar to stackoverflow) Interesting news from around the world in the field of Robotics A list of upcoming conferences like ICRA, CVPR, etc. As for the layout, I agree that something uncluttered yet elite, with some art featuring robots in the background would be just great. EDIT: For the ...
