Hello wikians,

Per RuneScape:Theme, I decided to go ahead and make a proposal for a logo for this Christmas. Below are the 2 base colors + discord version (will set the sizes correctly if it ends up being used, currently 1000px).

Open to changes, please let me know of any concerns/ideas.

Comment - Can you make sure to have SVG versions of these? Easier to modify and save at various sizes that way, since we use the logo in multiple places. jayden 22:10, 29 November 2018 (UTC)

Made with Adobe Illustrator, can save as SVG. Meeeeerds msg 22:29, 29 November 2018 (UTC)

Support and Comment - I love the design. Is there a way to make them with vector drawn graphic then it wouldn't matter what size they are jericowrahl (talk) 15:36, 30 November 2018 (UTC)

They are vectors, I just didn't post png here instead :) Meeeeerds msg 20:24, 30 November 2018 (UTC)

Comments - Relaying my thoughts from Discord: "tbh I'm not really a fan of the bells for the (discord mainly) logo, it's not necessarily easy to tell what they are when it's small, kinda looks like a bow n doesn't scream rs/christmas". I like the red though and something festive is better than nothing Star Talk ayy lmao ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) 12:13, 1 December 2018 (UTC)

I did try something RS related but I didn't find an option that looked good enough, the bells are mainstream AF, but so is a santa hat. I also wanted to keep it on the sword/R area, can definetly do something else but I wanted to keep the identity of the rest. The bells could be bigger but then they'd cover the whole R opening and I thought it'd look weird. Any ideas are welcome for the following festivities/releases.

As a further comment, there were some lingering issues around getting logos to update due to how we cache thumbnails. @TehKittyCat might be able to comment further. cqm talk 13:34, 5 December 2018 (UTC)
As a comment to your comment, wouldn't @someone being a thing on the wiki be nice to have? Fishing cape.png Kate the HuntressQuest.png 13:40, 5 December 2018 (UTC)
@DeKaitlyn it already is a thing, you should get a notification if someone links to your user/talk page on a discussion jayden 14:01, 5 December 2018 (UTC)
@JaydenKieran Not really, didn't get a notification when you linked my userpage. Only noticed in the recent changes >.> Fishing cape.png Kate the HuntressQuest.png 14:08, 5 December 2018 (UTC)
It might only work in talk pages, but I'll look into it. jayden 14:10, 5 December 2018 (UTC)
There will be protections in place to protect against abuse (such as adding multiple instances of it into one edit, resulting in multiple notifications for the user), right? Fishing cape.png Kate the HuntressQuest.png 14:15, 5 December 2018 (UTC)
Pretty sure I can manually update thumbnails by force refreshing the cache. have been doing that ever since we forked and it has always worked. Meeeeerds msg 13:58, 5 December 2018 (UTC)
This isn't good enough. jayden 14:02, 5 December 2018 (UTC)
Well obviously it isn’t great, but it’s what I can do for now to make images show up correctly. Meeeeerds msg 14:39, 5 December 2018 (UTC)

Closed - The logos will be implemented across our branding temporarily. I'll see to making it happen based on the vector versions that Merds provided me. There may be technical problems associated with the on-site wiki logo, and I will amend this close message if that is the case. jayden 21:03, 5 December 2018 (UTC)
