Hi, I know that it may seem to be irelevant now, but with some terrible mistakes against nature in mind (like Java mascot Duke) I want to ask if nim has some mascot? I thought that something like for example Veigar Final Boss (dark mage .. linked to old school but in modern style) would be perfect ツ 2017-03-16 20:27:25
We have played around with the idea of a honey badger as the mascot, we even have a prototype: https://github.com/nim-lang/assets/blob/master/Art/mascot.svg. We have decided that this one is too violent looking though

By the way, the "simplified logo" in the experimental directory is much nicer and modern than the currect one. But anyway, it isn't very important.

Yes, we are working on a new website design incorporating that logo. 2017-03-16 22:54:39
Holy smokes, I don't think I'd want to program in Nim if I saw that honey badger! I'd run away as fast as possible!

I actually like him, but I think a little friendlier-looking would not be amiss. That badger looks like he wants to devour me if I don't get my bounds checking right.

Honeybadgers are awesome. But this one reminds me more Godzilla or Grizly. 2017-03-17 07:31:58
That's some nightmare fuel over there

That's great news! Any chance to see the work in progress?

Sure. You can run it locally, grab the source here: https://github.com/nim-lang/website (btw PRs are always welcome in case you want to help :))
