I would like to propose some additions for the current Template:Updates. For the "Latest Game Content" section, wouldn't it be nice if an image is added next to it, similar to the AoTM? I've also added colour to the section headings.

Any comments?   az talk   04:22, 18 August 2008 (UTC)

The design is already good. But i prefer the style of the header to be inscribed by a css class so that users using different skins can manipulate that into their very own favourite. XDRAGONAITE +Saradomin's Book of Wisdom.png 12:22, 18 August 2008 (UTC)
Um, I couldn't do that. That requires modifying the [[MediaWiki:Monaco.css]] and [[Mediawiki:Monobook.css]], something which I am not entitled to do (only admins can modify files in the Mediawiki namespace). Anyways, if this design is accepted, I hope that any admin could incorporate the style for the sub-header into the css files.   az talk   13:59, 18 August 2008 (UTC)

It looks much better than plain old text. Pics are almost always FTW, and certainly are in this case.--Degenret01 15:01, 18 August 2008 (UTC)

I'm with Degenret on this one, pics are always (1,000 words) FTW even for people with lysdexia, ~kytti khat 03:48, 19 August 2008 (UTC)
I think it's totally hot - Lol, I stole that from Paris Hilton. I like that style, but if we put that on quartz skin, it'll mess up. Derilith 21:47, 19 August 2008 (UTC)
Would it be better if we did our own captures from in game rather than clone from the RuneScape website? Even the many of the sites Game Guide imagery has been copied here (e.g., Magic which is using [[:Image:Magic the basics.png|this image]]). This just creates more needless blind dog following of whatever the official site's current style happens to be which is likely to be updated anytime. ~kytti khat 21:24, 22 August 2008 (UTC)

I've replaced the "cloned" image with a screen capture from the Air altar. Now that you mention it, the Game Guide icons appear in many pages, including Bank, and LootShare. But, that's a different issue.   az talk   02:42, 23 August 2008 (UTC)

Sorry about that, I wasn't trying to confuse issues, however now I'm curious if there is or should be a policy about images cloned from the Game Guide, etc. By the way, the new image looks great. ~kytti khat 03:07, 25 August 2008 (UTC)
