We now have access to animated discord icons so I was asked if I could do something (wikifest vlogs wink). Thanks to a high-ranked person on my list :Wowee: man that doesn't fit the entirety of Iiii_I_I_I's house, I decided to learn After Effects and do some stuff.
Some people thought that the first (currently in use as a result of excitement) didn't look great so I made another one that seems to be liked by more people.

Option 200px 50px
  • Works well as an intro for something, not as well as the discord icon as this only plays when hovered. This means that when hovered, the icon disappears first to make the animation.
  • Was mostly experimenting with the program as I was just learning it.
  • Works fine and is more subtle. No sudden change when hovered.
  • I know it might look like it bounces too much on the big version, but it really looks fine as the Discord icon.
  • Check my discord icon to see how it looks without the big image to the left.
  • P.S. - I can tweak the bounce if requested but that's about it for this one.

EDIT: I dropped down the bounce a bit cuz some ppl still think it was too much, which is the opposite of the subtle bounce I wanted. Hopefully, it looks more static and less of an eyesore and those who prefer a static image don't mind it as much (See small version for discord size). (Basically moving up the one I put down there in a comment.) Meeeeerds msg 02:01, 15 June 2019 (UTC)



B - as the creator of this art piece :Kappa: Meeeeerds msg 20:28, 5 June 2019 (UTC)

A - nice sword but also b is nice too Star Talk ayy lmao ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) 20:30, 5 June 2019 (UTC)

B - i change to b after spending more time on mobile - sword is still nice tho Star Talk ayy lmao ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) 22:20, 12 June 2019 (UTC)

Whatever - really could not care any less and I'm not sure why it's worth a thread jayden 20:31, 5 June 2019 (UTC)

B -- Recent uploads SpineTalkGuest book 20:41, 5 June 2019 (UTC)

A but slower - I don’t really see the point in having one if we go with B; too subtle. Christine (talk) 20:47, 5 June 2019 (UTC)

A - B is far too subtle to even notice. Talk to Kelsey 20:47, 5 June 2019 (UTC)

A - reminds me of artisanal cheese. Also jayden is a party pooper. Badassiel (talk) 20:50, 5 June 2019 (UTC)

B - It's subtle but I think it would be nice :) BigDiesel2m (talk) 20:51, 5 June 2019 (UTC)

A/Either - Good work on both Merds! I like A the most, but they're both good, happy with either ^^ - Rawny (talk) 20:54, 5 June 2019 (UTC)

whatever v2.0 - they look great, but an animated icon is completely unnecessary imo -Towelcat (talk) 21:30, 5 June 2019 (UTC)

Right, but the point is that we can have one, so why not? Unnecessary, yes, but might as well flex the boost thing. Badassiel (talk) 21:49, 5 June 2019 (UTC)

Neither/Static image - I'm not trying to disparage the quality of Merds's work - As he creates very nice work in his free time for the wiki. However, I do not think that either of these look better than the static image we are currently using. dDbvitC.pngScuzzy Betahib8CAd.png 21:56, 5 June 2019 (UTC)

Also this should have been on the meta wiki. dDbvitC.pngScuzzy Betahib8CAd.png 21:57, 5 June 2019 (UTC)

Neither (or B) — I agree with Scuzzy. I don't personally really like animated profile pictures, so I don't really like animated server icons either. I think it looks better without animation, but if one must be had, the subtleness of B suits it better considering A doesn't loop smoothly and starts over whenever you hover your mouse over it. Credit where it's due though, they are indeed well made. --laagone talk 22:02, 5 June 2019 (UTC)

Strong neither - Just because an option now exists, doesn't mean we need or necessarily want it. Animated server icons are tacky and just further bloats the list of annoyances on Discord. iN008talk 22:13, 5 June 2019 (UTC)

This is why I made the 2nd version. So that you don't get spooked when you hover it. It's a nice thing if you notice it, but it is not in your face. Meeeeerds msg 22:43, 5 June 2019 (UTC)

(Neither/Meh B)/Static - Our icon is fine as it is but I agree if we have the feature we may as well use it. "A" is too long, too convoluted, and it really gets irritating on mobile every time you open the side bar. I don't like how we have to wait a good couple of seconds to see what the actual icon for the server is. I'd prefer a gif that keeps the icon consistent as it is and it's not a construction of the logo, but B just looks like something I'd hate after a while (the bounciness is too much). Unless we can figure out a good gif, let's keep it static for now. There's no rush: I don't see this program leaving Discord.

B - I like both, but I get the reasoning that an icon should visible at all times, A is a nice intro for a video or presentation or something though. ;) Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 17:01, 7 June 2019 (UTC)

Oh no a giant B! Also where the fuck is Liquid to comment on the thread title? 7kyt1iT.gif --WINE OF GOOD HEALTH (Actually Stinko) 18:41, 8 June 2019 (UTC)

Comment - I've reduced the bounce a bit to make it more subtle to try and accommodate some player's preference of it looking static (?) (currently my discord icon, but in black). Meeeeerds msg 03:16, 9 June 2019 (UTC)

I'm really loving the creative titles recently - It seems people are finally coming up with cool titles for otherwise dry discussions. And I'll take A. --LiquidTalk 04:51, 9 June 2019 (UTC)

A - Or what if the scroll parts was like a flag flapping in the wind, or the whole logo as a flag flapping, the bounce seems so random. Seers headband 2 chathead.png Elessar2 (talk) 08:43, 9 June 2019 (UTC)

That is beyond what I know :/ The bounce was what I figured for a simple subtle animation that has the logo up 100% of the time, as opposed to the first where every time you hover it disappears. Meeeeerds msg 12:53, 9 June 2019 (UTC)

Comment - It's so subtle at this point that I ask why we even have it. Useless feature. -Towelcat (talk) 13:52, 10 June 2019 (UTC)

That version you sent has less bounce than the proposed. It is useless but if we can have it why not? Meeeeerds msg 01:14, 11 June 2019 (UTC)
"It is useless but if we can have it why not?" As the old saying goes, "concise over superfluous". -Towelcat (talk) 03:14, 11 June 2019 (UTC)
Why not? Because it's dowdy and unnecessary, "because we can" is a poor argument for having it. Regardless, it just gives y'all more work when the holidays come around. "concise over superfluous" wise words, who could've come up with that I wonder :zil:. iN008talk 13:07, 11 June 2019 (UTC)

Comment - What about a gif of some rsw related meme? :) Otherwise A Icy Glacies Talk page 18:52, 10 June 2019 (UTC)

Horrific iN008talk 13:07, 11 June 2019 (UTC)

Oppose - both are kinda eyesores 2hlOGcD.pngWinicrowhib8CAd.png 15:53, 11 June 2019 (UTC)

Oppose - I prefer a static image. - WhNddzk.pngPascalhib8CAd.png 15:55, 11 June 2019 (UTC)

Neither - If the fuss is about distractibility and subtlety, then why go with an animated icon to begin with? How does it benefit us if people are going to be annoyed or unhappy with it? Achievements Coelacanth0794 Talk Contribs 19:59, 11 June 2019 (UTC)

A is cool But B gives me motion sickness. Didn't think I had that. Degenret01 (talk)

B2 - A beautiful and vibrant community deserves a beautiful and vibrant logo, but enough about Fandom, let's get ourselves a fancy logo! - Sahima (Talk) 19:30, 15 June 2019 (UTC)

B - animated icons shouldn't be too distracting imo. I prefer a static image, but the subtlety of B could still be nice. Nericat (talk) 19:49, 19 June 2019 (UTC)

Closed - The community is basically split three ways on this one between A, B, and neither. There isn't really a consensus to find. It may be more prudent to propose a single icon next time. --LiquidTalk 16:22, 1 July 2019 (UTC)

Discussion (2)

Unclosed - So it seems that option B has actually been used for a while now. Do people want to change back to the static image or are they okay with keeping option B? --LiquidTalk 16:38, 1 July 2019 (UTC)

Back to Static - never settled with me, I'd prefer if it were returned to normal. iN008talk 18:07, 1 July 2019 (UTC) / stubborn man

B (B2) - I never would have thought that something subtle like this, that moves ONLY when you hover it (which is only when you switch server and if you hover over it for long enough to even notice it) could create so much discussion. I think it's a good upgrade that we could have up when we can (when we have enough nitro boosters). I took the flaws that we had on A and made a different, smoother version so that when you hover it you don't get any surprises. Legit nothing bad comes from this. Meeeeerds msg 19:06, 1 July 2019 (UTC)

My endless complaining will be the something bad. iN008talk 02:05, 2 July 2019 (UTC) / stubborn man

B/B2 - I've come to terms with it Talk to Kelsey 19:07, 1 July 2019 (UTC)

Static - I still stand by it being pointless & unnecessary. Why was it changed before consensus in the first place anyway? Why is this thread on rsw and not meta? -Towelcat (talk) 01:52, 2 July 2019 (UTC)

Runescape:Consensus "the root of "consensus" is "consent"", "no consensus on the proposal, the current status quo prevails.",What was the status quo before thread? Static 👏. iN008talk 02:05, 2 July 2019 (UTC) / stubborn man

Don't care - But if we can flex the nitro boost, why not? HaidroH rune.pngEagle feather 3.pngCandle (blood red).png 1XqyDNM.png Crystal triskelion fragment 3.pngHazelmere's signet ring.png 01:58, 2 July 2019 (UTC)

Keep B - I like it and don't see what the problem is. Merds has put some work in to make an option which makes use of the feature and accounted for some people's dislike by making a very subtle animation. Magic logs detail.pngIsobelJTalk page 06:22, 2 July 2019 (UTC)

Comment - Happy for B/B2 to be kept. If it's distressing folks to the extent that we're genuinely at risk of losing editors then, sure, return to being static. - Rawny (talk) 21:03, 2 July 2019 (UTC)

Imagine being scared of gifs. Meeeeerds msg 21:10, 2 July 2019 (UTC)
