Speaking of Font Awesome. It looks like their process is influenced by a "leaderboard" which is sorted by reactions to the issue that requests the icon.

So everyone should go cast a vote on this issue which has been sitting around for a while:

Add new branded icon for Dev.to #12589

dev.to is a great platform which I have been using more frequently in the last couple of months. It has great articles and great discussions.

Add all the reactions so they know how much the DEV community cares to be includes. 😄

Excellent, thanks @ben ! I just did it, and I noticed that also adding a comment impacts on our listing. After I added votes and 1 comment, the issue jumped up a couple positions on their leaderboard here: fontawesome.com/community/leaderbo...

Thanks! PS, the DEV font is "Joystick" which we bought a license for, therefore anyone could use it to recreate our logo. I don't think it's the end of the world that yours is a bit off in this sense, but just an FYI. 🙂

Hey @ben with yours and the dev community support we just went from 30th place to 8th on the leaderboard: fontawesome.com/community/leaderbo...

So we definitely became way more relevant for their upcoming releases!

What an awesome and engaged community to be part of :)
