Yes, the situation is confusing and I guess we would like to have a
uniform logo but as already stated in many further discussions (please see
http://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wiktionary-l/ 01/02/03 2007) people of _Wiktionary_ did not very much like the new logo and therefore most communities did not change anything.
Furthermore there is still this copyright problem (scrabble is a copyrighted trademark), please read
and also the not yet solved questions about which characters to choose in the logo.
It is a total chaos, imho.
