We don't really have any style guidelines. Regarding design, we're all amateurs here.

Simon Lord (who also designed the current Geeklog logo) was our "house artist" for a long time. This position has been vacant since Simon moved on.

I don't really see the need for an entirely new logo - unless someone comes up with something fresh and convincing, of course. The current logo may need some retouching to better fit with whatever comes out of the efforts for a new site design.

That's because one of those amateurs (read: me) did that at one point and nobody has ever bothered to provide a better version. A higher-res version of the Geeklog logo is available here:
