Is there a way we can change the "favorite" button across the entire site (there should be one directly to the left of this question)? I find it somewhat ironic to have a pentagram incorporated into a site about Judaism, given its symbolisms http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pentagram.

  • I think all the beta sites have that picture. (But that doesn't answer your question.)

    Perhaps we should just think of it as a star (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star_polygon) instead (which I assume it is in this case). At least for me the shape doesn't conjure (no pun) any religious ideas.

    As a doodler who spent some part of high school drawing stars with as many different numbers of points as possible, I agree with WAF. It's just a doodle.

    @Isaac, I agree - but this is something to keep in mind, for when the site goes live and we can get a specific design. A magen david would be great to replace it with...

  • @AviD By all means. I hope there's a great deal of discussion of all the design elements, leading eventually to an awesome, distinctly Jewish, site design.

  • @AviD - While we're at it, how about a little pointing hand? fileformat.info/info/unicode/char/261b/index.htm

It seems in the new beta design, this issue is solved as the star doesn't have the inside lines.


It's worth discussing alternatives for this glyph that could be part of the site design when we launch, eventually. However, I think the consensus is generally that the sketchy five-pointed start we have now is just an inoffensive doodle and not worth trying to change ahead of time.
