1 [[File:Custom wiki.png]] Used for the Heroes theme. Created by [[w:c:fr.runescape:Utilisateur:Cigimo0|Cigimo0]] of [[w:c:fr.runescape|RuneScape Wiki FR]], adapted by Manyman and Mark Hunter cape (t).png Sentra246Blue hallowe'en mask.png 07:25, August 24, 2010 (UTC)
2 th_Wiki_Logo2-1.png X mark.svg This is a starting design, I haven't added a banner to it which i plan to do, I think this basically represents some parts of the wiki, Did i mention i suck at photoshop? I pull out, CBF to finish it and everyone else made really cool ones [Pharos] 11:07, August 24, 2010 (UTC)
3 http://img688.imageshack.us/img688/4637/rswlogo2.png S' logo followed by the RuneScape-themed font stating 'Wiki' in the RuneScape 'plaque' style used in the real logo.

There is also a favicon I could make. I also think it'd work well with the suggested new theme for the Wiki, it was brown and RuneScape styled, similar to the SD and FO wiki. I hope it changes soon. I could even try and create a mockup. I planned to make no similarity to any other entries, and if allowed I may try to come up with a different concept.


I will update this to have a transparent background.

<--- great logo...

4 http://img507.imageshack.us/img507/7733/rslogo.png The Smelting Pot - A tribute to the current RSWiki and RuneScape logos. This logo will probably change before the deadline. Transparent background so will fit different colour themes. jHoyle 10:45, 2010 August 25 (UTC)
5 http://img163.imageshack.us/img163/4641/wikiicon.png An Icon similar to the one we already have, but there's a wizard in the center with full wizard (g).

10 http://img840.imageshack.us/img840/6363/rsw.png Runic:

Like the favourites above, however slightly different to the FR one (so we're not stealing) and it's a lot cleaner all over the place. The background for the 'Wiki' part is also part of the official R|S logo, and the text has been similar too. Hopefully this completes everyone's suggestions and everyone likes it! :)

33 http://img824.imageshack.us/img824/7539/logoglobe.png Another globe one. Inspired by 29, but not based upon it. Used a RS world map, added a jigsaw effect, then mapped to a sphere (in GIMP if anyone wants to replicate). Also has my previous Runescape Wiki logo. No god symbols, as they made it too crowded. Updated: New version improved the shadows. Also, an alternative version made to fit within the 155x155 limits of Monobook can be found here.

43 http://img822.imageshack.us/img822/9274/rswikilogo.png Map of Entrana / Catherby / Ardounge in the globe, with a jigsaw puzzle effect. Took the dragon and flags from official RuneFest logo, and took the actual RS logo and took out the second half of the letters, and took out the last stone. Will put WIKI in the blank stones, and may remove jigsaw effect. UPDATE: I have taken out the top right piece of the globe and removed the flags. I have also colored dragon head again. Removed the silvery-fade from the back of the globe. Added the god icons on the sides. Update 2 - I have removed the globe and replaced it with the combat triangle. I have also crossed a staff of light and armadyl godsword in the corners. Changed the logo from the official one to the RuneFest logo as the colors would not make the logo look good at all. Update 3 - I have removed the SoL and AGS. Added reflection to the logo, moving the original up. Also removed the combat triangle and put in a person with full Tier 11 in the form of the combat triangle.

Based on #11 but with runefest logos on left and right. It is not 100% perfect but i dont got the software to enhance it any further. If anyone can improve in photoshop or something similair it could look even nicer. alos some transparancy would be cool as well

Ideas & Comments

If posting an idea, describe the design followed by your signature (~~~~).

'Comment' - what do you guys think of number 65? I thought it was pretty well done, but do you think I should superimpose it on top of a globe of RuneScape or remobe the blue glow? 24.127.101.129 20:41, September 6, 2010 (UTC)

Notice - I wish that people do not use the RuneFest dragon idea from my logo in theirs. It was an original idea, just like everything else in my entry. (The globe is being changed, just not uploaded yet) Runeman54 14:20, September 2, 2010 (UTC)


A suitable rune which would be representing the wiki, is partly morphed into something mind making a similar to the Wikipedia's Jigsaw Globe logo, with the puzzle pieces with Letters in languages. This had been put into practice at WikiSimpsons where Homer's head morphs into the globe at the top, and in Uncyclopedia where the Globe is changed into a potato, Times New Roman font will form the Wiki's name below the logo.

I'm afraid the community won't like that, see RS:NOT#WIKIPEDIA. Mark (talk) 17:30, August 24, 2010 (UTC)
I fail to understand how that rule applys here, this concerns a logo, and if anything, shouldn't the wikis I mentioned change the logos if such a rule also concerns the design for the logo? Explorer's ring 3.pngBtzkillerv has entered the building! Cape (blue).png 20:16, August 24, 2010 (UTC)

this is a rough idea of what my idea for the logo is: [1], considering others used the WP logo, I don't see why mine won't stand a chance. Explorer's ring 3.pngBtzkillerv has entered the building! Cape (blue).png 18:51, August 29, 2010 (UTC)

What if you had a Staff of Light, Rune Longsword, and Rune Arrow all crossing each other (similar to the runebound behemoth's prayer).

Then at the lower left, have high level rune(s) like soul, blood, and air overlapping; at the lower right have a high level bow (maybe a dark bow?); and at the top center have a rune helmet (mid-helm, I am thinking). Then under this combat triangle, have "Runscape Wiki" like in the current logo (only a different color and no reflection).

Let me know what you all think about this.

i was thinking if we had a rune chic on the other side like:

that would be cool... and we should probably throw some sapphire in there to go with the theme ( I am working on something right now and i will delete all this junk i just added when i post it) Glow3scroll 03:37, 2010 August 26 (UTC)

Hmm, I really don't think we should be having black backgrounds... Or really any backgrounds. The photo's must be PNG, and 32bit PNG supports full-alpha (Do NOT use 8-bit, as that is only one alpha channel). Transparency looks much better than black backgrounds, ESPECIALLY with the sapphire theme. I'll see what I can mix up tomorrow. --Hofmic-- 04:49, August 26, 2010 (UTC)

Suggestion - Could we take the "RS" part of number 4 and add it to the wiki part of 2 or 8, this could be dificult as some of it has been covered up.   Swizz Talk   Events!   09:13, August 26, 2010 (UTC)

My favourite has to be the R|S wiki logo (below) it looks fresh and new. I hope you pick this (not made by me) as the winner. PLEASE: make a page for people to vote or some sort of Poll QUESTION: why does your wiki use the RS:DDD, I hate it! Please delete this feature...

P.S I accidently changed something in the letter below... So sorry. Italay90 15:40, August 26, 2010 (UTC)

Now, why would you hate "Don't Delete Discussions"??? It has no cons, other than a slightly messy discussion, which can be handled, and is worth the ability to see the discussion as it is (or was) rather than a modified version because someone decided they wanted to delete a bunch of stuff. Anway, I uploaded four logo designs. Nothing perfect, because MinyRS beat me to the punch of creating that runic one. ;D

Observation - A lot of very good submissions here; the envy of Photoshop nubs like me. The choices are already starting to get difficult. Also, the list of "insert logo here"s only go down to twenty, does that mean there is a maximum of twenty submissions, as it may confuse some people. 222 talk 06:26, August 27, 2010 (UTC)

No there is no maximum just that way people can add there's without having to add coding. Hunter cape (t).png Sentra246Blue hallowe'en mask.png 06:37, August 27, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - On number 9, maybe change the wikipedia symbols for runes symbols Because I'm a Master. Dead evil84 Talk[Myface]Because I like mysteries.

Comment - Can somebody try using the runes on logo 16 and swap them out with the runes on the current logo? There should be an svg image for each type of rune somewhere on the wiki. Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 11:35, August 27, 2010 (UTC)

Nope :s Not all of them have them Twig Talk 772kZGs.png 00:24, August 28, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - I like #17 (and agree that maybe the rune images should be "Wikified" a little), but what about adding god-logos around the edges of the globe, to fill up some of the empty space there? The gods should be those that have God-books, to make the list short and easy. --Sw0rd1914 13:43, August 27, 2010 (UTC)

Comment I like both #17 and #9. Nice and clean. What is slightly better, I think, could be a combination of 17's map and 9's runes, because I think 9's map is hard to discern, while 17's runes are dull and boring. ( no offense :P ).--Agamemnus 19:18, August 27, 2010 (UTC)

Image Creation Tips: Just to help any potential logo makers who wish to try their hand at creating a logo, here's a few general image creating tips:

  • First of all, don't even TRY to use a program like Microsoft paint. It doesn't support alpha, and frankly, is just not good enough. Free alternatives include the GIMP and Paint.NET, both which I use for my image design (Paint.NET is easier to use, but the GIMP has FAR more features and is overall compatible with more files). Commercial software would be best off with Photoshop, though in my opinion, the GIMP is just as powerful without costing a bundle.
  • Hard edges looks bad generally, unless purposely intended so. Even if your logo is rectangular, you should smooth the edges, such as how the current logo does. This is done with Alpha (transparency).
  • Likewise, you should avoid having backgrounds. While a white background may appear unnoticeable on the sapphire theme, users using a different theme or if the site's theme were to be changed, would make the background quite noticeable. Since Anti-Aliasing (smooth edging, rather than jagged edges) depends on blurring the edges with the background, its important to have alpha BEFORE you create anything else.

I must admit, the logos are looking very good in here! Hofmic Talk 00:54, August 28, 2010 (UTC)


Comment- Guys stop making so many good ones it's hard to choose lol Death will follow you...but you can survive 03:32, August 28, 2010 (UTC)

Comment- Number 18 isn't to good because there are a lot more people here than Americans and British. Hunter cape (t).png Sentra246Blue hallowe'en mask.png 08:20, August 28, 2010 (UTC)

Suggestion - What would be nice is if we could replace the map of No. 17 with No. 9's. Also, add no. 11 to the bottom, but possibly smaller or on one line. This should make a wikipedia globe with a vaguer runescape map at the bottom as well as grey rune symbols with the words "RuneScape Wiki" at the bottom. I am too fail at photoshop to do this myself. 222 talk

Personally i like the map on no. 17 much better than that of No. 9. Hunter cape (t).png Sentra246Blue hallowe'en mask.png 09:02, August 28, 2010 (UTC)

I like nr. 22, but then you should add some runes in the center of the main circle. Thats awesome Buzz (Talk#P ) 11:20, August 28, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - Really like #29 thus far, think it might be better though if in between each god symbol was a symbol indicating each style of combat. Like a rune, a sword, a bow, and a summoning creature. Can anyone make that happen? --Lgm123990 20:27, August 28, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - Hmm, #35 is too large... It has a height of 184px, over the 155px max. Hofmic Talk 23:37, August 28, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - Woah, #33 looks great, and it's simple with no backgrounds diverting attention.

Comment - I think the RuneScape Wiki part in No. 35 is just too big. Also, what happened to the grey bits at the bottom of the wording. I've been meaning to make something like this, but I can't crop anything in Photoshop for some reason; everything just goes tiny and grey. 222 talk 02:10, August 29, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - I liked Felipebrs's Simple 28, and thus I added it to my Monobook.css because it stands out among the previous additions from Logo and Theme design forums, it can easily fit Monobook and look fantastic, and made a minor change (width to fit properly in Monobook). Thank you all very much for the logos. On another note, I have yet to see a logo submitted with the previous font used in the RSC logo (Choc D if I'm not mistaken, sadly it's a commercial font), it would be interesting to see what we will come up with. Ryan PM 04:43, August 29, 2010 (UTC)

I stand corrected on the Choc D now. Now if it could use a less compressed one, it would be nice to use. But I'm still adamant about using candidate 31 (Simple 28), although 38 would be a tough customer if changed ever so slightly. Ryan PM 11:28, August 29, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - Well, I improved #33 so the shadows are smoother, as well, based on other's suggestions, added an alternative version that fits the 155x155 requirement for Monobook. Hofmic Talk 17:14, August 29, 2010 (UTC)

Excellent. I'm glad to see someone is thinking about the wiki users that prefer Monobook =) ~kytti khat 00:24, August 30, 2010 (UTC)

Suggestion - In my opinion a combination of the font from 25 and the image from 33 would make a nice logo! Duke Risto, the Dukest of Dukes 08:59, August 30, 2010 (UTC)

Hmm, what is that font? I'm not familar with it? Hofmic Talk 00:40, August 31, 2010 (UTC)
I think it's the same font as 26. ~kytti khat 09:31, September 1, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - Number 23 should be the winner. It's clean, simple, and the most aesthetically pleasing and it's well edited. Minimingle 20:34, August 30, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - Number 35 looks great. It's clear and stands out. Number 24 is also VERY good, with all the god symbols around the world, and the colour of that god. Hunter cape (t).png Zylus Blue partyhat.png 08:43, August 31, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - # 44. It was clearly done in paint as transparency was turned black, as well as it JUST taking parts from other people's submissions. It took the RS WIKI logo from #22 I believe and the RuneFest logo from #43.

Comment - RE: #46. I think we need to get permission from Microsoft if we're going to use paint to create our logo. 78.144.126.234 15:47, September 2, 2010 (UTC)

Copyright reasons. You can't use features of an image program without permission 78.144.126.234 16:00, September 2, 2010 (UTC)
That's stupid and you know it. I understand your desire to use RuneScape imagery in the logo, but unfortunately that likely to be copyright infringement. I guess you'll just have to be... oh I don't know... imaginative or creative or something. Instead of spending an hour with photoshop, shuffling things around that someone else has created. kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 16:59, September 2, 2010 (UTC)
To make a point, you CAN use an image program such as Microsoft Paint to create a logo and it doesn't belong to microsoft. It's your image now and even though it was created with paint, it's no copyright infringement to use that image. Of course, I strongly protest against ever using Microsoft Paint (easily the worst image editing program out there). Using the RS Logo could be considered copyright infrigment, but since the Wiki is a silver level fan site and one of the big three, I'm sure Jagex wouldn't mind. After all, technically, the name "Runescape" is copyrighted, but that doesn't mean we can't call the wiki the "Runescape Wiki". Hofmic Talk 20:49, September 2, 2010 (UTC)

Strong oppose - We can't disqualify logos because we think they were made as a joke. How will you draw the line between joke and serious logo? If someone wants to enter a joke logo, let him or her do it. If it's a bad logo, no one will actually vote for it. If you disqualify logos without a very good reason, people will start to complain that the process is unfair. --LiquidTalk 17:40, September 2, 2010 (UTC)
My Two Bits - I agree with liquidhelium, disqualifying the joke ones isn't a good idea. Of course, Dave Lopo above had a good suggestion of what to do with one... =D. In all honesty, the "finals" will filter out the joke and poor quality logos. Hofmic Talk 20:49, September 2, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - Can you guys stop taking the *** with these crappy logos?   Swizz Talk   Events!   19:16, September 2, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - I think the perfect logo is somewhere between 35 and 36. They both contain the RuneScape logo (which tells new users that this is definitely  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 97.92.89.244 (talk).the RuneScape wiki), and the map and the rune symbols in the globe make a nice touch. However, as for design, I think in 35 the text is too big, in 36 it's too small; 35 should have a puzzle design on the map but in 36 it's too dark and conspicuous (should be lighter). Finally, the transparency effect in 36 is a must for fitting into any theme. Abyssal whip (white).png MoscowModder Talk AL Helm of neitiznot.png 21:04, September 2, 2010 (UTC)

I thought id have the flags there so I could have the meaning of there being the english rs wiki seeing that americans AND english people use the wiki.

Comment - Number 7 is by far the BEST.

Comment - I think that the original logo is by far the best and most pleasing to the eye, but if I had to choose another, I think that #3 is clean, simple, and well done. #33 is also very well done. I like what you did with the globe, great work. (LordGigamesh 18:12, September 6, 2010 (UTC))

Technically Wikia owns us, but they're not going to make the decision. 16:57, September 6, 2010 (UTC)

Idea - In keeping with the evolution of the Web, an SVG image would be quite beneficial. I volunteer my services to convert any "winning" image into an SVG. SVG content is much more versatile and scales without pixelation. However, the final logo that we display on the site should be a PNG, as MSIE <9 lacks support for SVG (even MSIE 9 is far from optimal). All other major browsers support it. Publishing two versions would combine the extensibility of SVG and the compatibility of PNG. We can display the PNG, then make any modifications in the future within the SVG. SVG files are just XML: if you want to change the text from "RuneScape Wiki" to, say, "Wikia: RuneScape," it would be as simple as opening the file and running a find/replace. From there, simply save the file as a PNG in any image editor, and you have your logo. Want to turn it into a desktop background? It enlarges without pixelation.

The wiki will automatically convert a svg to a png for non-supportive browsers, so a separate version would be unnecessary. However, since the raster images already have a set size, they won't really benefit from SVG much, except with the simplified ones that don't need detail. Here's an example.
