Moved from Forum:Propose a new theme --Aburnett(Talk) 20:52, December 28, 2010 (UTC)

Looking at the new skin the current logo doesn't quite fit in with it, so i propose we replace it with this version made by 9the Enigma9

The new skin with the current logo can be found here and with the proposed logo here. Also it would be good if we can get consensus, yes or no, on this before the new skin is officially released, which would mean this would be less than 7 days. It would just make it look a little more professional. Hunter cape (t).png Sentra246Blue hallowe'en mask.png 03:21, December 28, 2010 (UTC)

Discussion[edit source]

Strong Oppose - First, the words are not very clear once they mingle with the runes. "RuneScape Wiki" should stand out. I like older loge--the one similiar to the one we have now, with 14 runes forming a circle and "RuneScape Wiki" in the middle. The proposed one has a terrible colour mix... And only five runes? Why five? And these particular runes? Is there a reason to this? Unless there is, it would be far more sensible to use the "circle" logo. --Atheist723 11:38, December 29, 2010 (UTC) Strong support - Looks much better. If later on we aren't satisfied, we can hold another logo comp, which will be destroyed by another skin release Wink 222 talk 09:10, December 28, 2010 (UTC) Pending - If we (Me and Cook) can't think up of a better idea I'll return my support. 222 talk 10:29, December 28, 2010 (UTC)

Support (kinda) - I'll support that for now, as it does look better, but eventually, at some point after this theme is implimented, we should have a contest for the logo. This was just for the skin, with no emphasis on the logo, and a separate contest should try and find a suitable logo for the new theme. Of course, because it should be compatible with the new theme, it'd be best to wait until the new theme is actually implemented before we hold a similar poll for logos... Hofmic Talk 12:39, December 28, 2010 (UTC)

I agree but i think there should be a logo released with the new skin that doesn't look terrible like the current one. Hunter cape (t).png Sentra246Blue hallowe'en mask.png 12:46, December 28, 2010 (UTC)

Support - While I love the old logo, it doesn't quite fit the current theme. Unless someone comes with a better design, this is great. bad_fetustalk 14:04, December 28, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - The logo used in my design which was voted in was this one: The new theme should use that logo and then if you want to propose a new one then that will need to be the basis of a new thread. --Gold ore.png Mercifull UK serv.svg (Talk) 18:47, December 28, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - What is up with the font in the screenshot?

Comment - I think we should start a new submission process like what we had at Forum:Changing the logo/Submissions. While I agree that the current logo does not fit as well as it should, we should stick with it until we have consensus on a new one. It's honestly not that bad with the new skin. Also, keep in mind that we probably wont roll the skin out till the end of January. --Aburnett(Talk) 20:52, December 28, 2010 (UTC)

Question: What is wrong with this code?

Oppose - I'm all for changing the logo, but not to the one proposed. The text on the logo is almost space age, whereas the background is an old-style map. The two of them together look completely wrong. Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 21:46, December 28, 2010 (UTC)

New Proposal[edit source]

Since Aburnett has said the skin won't be released until the end of Jan, we should be able to new a new submissions thing again. So submissions would be open until 10th of January, then on the 11th a kwik survey would be run until the 24th of January, then we will get consensus on the most popular logo. Since there were a few problems with only being able to choose 1 logo there will be 3 questions, favourite, 2nd favourite and 3rd favourite. To submit your work go to Forum:Changing_the_logo_(again)/Submissions.Hunter cape (t).png Sentra246Blue hallowe'en mask.png 00:48, December 29, 2010 (UTC)

Perfect. --Aburnett(Talk) 01:52, December 29, 2010 (UTC)

Not perfect - If I recall correctly, the new theme most likely to pass looks quite different from the default Oasis theme as well as the strange dragons that IP's seem to see. Furthermore, I seem to remember someone mentioning that the skin chosen in the new theme thread will have its whole package passed, including the logo. That means that people will be judging the submitted logos against the current theme, not the new one. I don't see too big a problem with this, since the discussion step occurs after the new skin is released, and since a frontrunner is likely to win against either skin. However, I'd be a little happier if the survey was held after the new skin is launched. --LiquidTalk 04:15, December 29, 2010 (UTC)

And why won't the new skin be out until the end of January and why is 1/24 picked as the end date instead of, say, 1/23 or 1/25? --LiquidTalk 04:17, December 29, 2010 (UTC)
Because me need time to modify the hundreds of aspects of the wiki that look terrible with the new colors. --Aburnett(Talk) 04:19, December 29, 2010 (UTC)
And me. I hate this skin's overcomplicated CSS framework. 05:33, December 29, 2010 (UTC)
I chose the 24th because it means we have 1 week to make sure there is nothing wrong with it. Yes the logo suggested by Mercifull is one of the ones in the list. Also if you want you can choose to view the logo with the new theme via css. Also they will be judging it against every logo proposed not just one. And why do you want a new logo added about a week after the theme is released, that looks really unprofessional and like we decided to change it at the last minute, we should have everything released at once not in 2 separate changes.

Comment As a professional researcher (It's my day job) I strongly recommend AGAINST the ranking the logos. It's a pain in the arse to analyse unless you got some special software like SPSS to pull anything meaningful out of it. I would do either of the following:

Please vote on the logo which is your favourite (You may select only one)
This is a simple poll where people can choose only one option which is their definite favourite. The same as the previous survey.
Which logos do you like the most? (tick no more than three)
Then you can so a multi coded frequency based on the number of ticks. This is the version that I think the wiki should use.

If you do not know how to do a multi code frequency in excel then I can do it in SPSS. --Gold ore.png Mercifull UK serv.svg (Talk) 19:52, December 29, 2010 (UTC)

Also another reason to use the 'tick up to three' version. If someone only wants to vote for one they can. I might hate all of the other options so I can use just 1 out of my three possible votes. This is a very effective way of finding out which are the highest voted on options. We use this a lot when asking people to choose which services they prefer that an organisation provides. --Gold ore.png Mercifull UK serv.svg (Talk) 19:55, December 29, 2010 (UTC)
Will we be able to switch from the new theme to this theme, just normal? I don't really like the new theme look its a bit too colorful. Liam - Beta Tester (talk) 10:42, December 31, 2010 (UTC)

Suggestion - Sorry if im doing anything wrong but maybe the new logo could be with a warrior left of RuneScape Wiki and a ranger under RuneScape Wiki and then a Mage right of Runescape Wiki.--by smokeboke99(orginally smokeboke9 but that got hacked)--

There's no space under the wiki. Full Slayer Helmet! Evil1888 Talk A's L Dragon Platebody! 00:14, January 7, 2011 (UTC)
