From WinCustomize Wiki
Winky the chameleon is the official site mascot for WinCustomize.com and related sites.
Smiling, green chameleon with a yellow belly. He often carries a paintbrush and is usually giving a thumbs up.
In 2001, Winky was first conceived during a contest on WinCustomize in which users could design or choose a site logo or mascot. The chameleon that was ultimately chosen as site mascot, was originally designed by Alexandrie of Pixtudio. It was among a few different versions the artist submitted as seen here.
From his debut to the present date, there have been 2 versions of the chameleon. The latest version was designed by Boogiebac and is currently still in use.
Winky is mostly used to brand all things WinCustomize; everything from awards and medals to articles and site representatives.
