I am an administrator on Logopedia who has been engaged with it since 2010 back when it first started, however I have only joined 9 years later. I am passionate for logos, and this wiki has been useful to me for a long time.
My area of wiki expertise is grammar, and I regularly correct SPaG errors on Logopedia and Wikipedia.
I also blog on this thing.
If you'd like to chat, please don't be afraid to leave a message on my talk page. I'll get back to you as soon as possible.

How I found this place out
In case you have any doubts on my claim of being here since 2010, I encourage you to read this short paragraph in order to squeeze any inch of doubt you may have.
Having seen logos for a long time, whether that was through watching TV (my family moved to 16:9 digital relatively early, so I was used to seeing DOGs) or just seeing them as I walked around (when I was around 1 year old, the house number 87 in Times New Roman was a simple design I liked), I went to try and find a logo for a little PowerPoint I was doing for no reason (as I did when I was young). In doing so, I happened to stumble across Logopedia. It seemed as if it had only been set up recently. So I just grabbed a few logos. I remembered the name and over the next few weeks and then months I came back to it. I saw it grow. I remember it hitting 10,000 pages extremely well. People wanted to work on this project. I did as an anonymous editor for a while (as I was using my mother's computer and I was only about six at the time, I was a little wary about creating accounts, etc). I kept checking back on it and saw it grow steadily. I was quite proud of this little wiki. I finally did sign up in 2019 and, as they say, the rest is history.
My favourite logos
I prefer logos with cold colours.
Powergen 1989 logo
I do find this logo aesthetically pleasing. The lady in the logo seems understanding and puts one's mind very much at ease.
Logopedia 2010 Wikia logo
This is the logo I used to see when I was around in Logopedia's earliest days. It reminds me of the wiki's good old days. I first became involved in June 2010, you see, when I started editing anonymously.
Football League 1988–2004 logo
One of my all-time favourite logos. The simplicity of this modern design and all its meaning strikes a chord with me.
Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? 1998–2004 logo
This logo was created masterfully. Intertwining the pound signs with the question marks was the mark of a true logo genius.
Language Studies Institute 1997 logo
I don't quite know why I like this logo but I do. I think it's for the same reason as the Powergen logo.
My least favourite logos
Avon County Council 1974–1996 unofficial logo
What is this logo even supposed to be?!? Poorly-designed, typical Friday afternoon stuff. Tragedy of a logo.
Leeds United 2018 logo (unused)
I can see why their fans hated it.
Albertville 1992 mascot "Magique"
It's not exactly a logo, but it still needs pointing out just how bad this mascot is.
No. Just NO.
Atlanta 1996 mascot "Izzy"
Again not exactly a logo but when you decide to stop showcasing your culture in your Olympic mascot, this is unfortunately what happens.
More to come :-)
