As alot of you know with the release of the clan camp yesterday we were given customisable capes. A couple other users and I last night started brainstorming what we'd like the wiki's cape to look like. For the two logos we suggested and agreed that the Scrolled Parchment and Fleur de lis, the parchment signifying our constant writing and storing of information and the Fleur to show our prestige as a fansite.

Edit; On that note I would like other users to submit ideas for the next couple days, whether its a colour scheme or a logo idea it's needed. After that I'd like to take a vote on the most liked logos and colour schemes. Some of our ideas are as follows:

  1. Sandy
  2. Radiant
  3. Cave
  4. Valour
  5. Scholar
  6. Yin Yang

I'd love to get feed back on these ideas and I'd be happy to post more images. Floppyc5 20:07, April 13, 2011 (UTC)

Adding more pictures. Floppyc5 20:08, April 13, 2011 (UTC)
Forum:Clan Camp, we have to see how this goes first. Full Slayer Helmet! Evil1888 Talk A's L Dragon Platebody! 20:10, April 13, 2011 (UTC)
I realise this. Floppyc5 20:15, April 13, 2011 (UTC)

Let Gareth pick the cape and make everyone else live with it - It's a relatively minor aspect. It's so much easier just to have Gareth, as the owner, pick the cape. --LiquidTalk 20:24, April 13, 2011 (UTC)

These are only suggestions. Besides it's not a minor aspect, it's a peice of equipment, the first customisable cape in the game, why not let it reflect what people suggest? I'm trying to develope a cape that symbolises the wiki and is unique. Why should you say it's easier? This is more interesting, more community involvement, isn't that somethign we want?

FYI, it's not the first, there's painted whips, painted shields, and painted helms. Full Slayer Helmet! Evil1888 Talk A's L Dragon Platebody! 20:40, April 13, 2011 (UTC)
I said cape, but it's pretty much "fully customisable" with many possible permutations. Floppyc5 20:45, April 13, 2011 (UTC)
I don't think it's a good idea to have Gaz the supreme overlloyd of the clan cape, but let everyone have an equally weighing opinion in deciding what the cape is going to look like. JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 20:53, April 13, 2011 (UTC)

Comment - I think the usage of the Parchment is a very good idea. (davelopo) 20:44, April 13, 2011 (UTC)

Comment - Here's a picture of the first cape design on a vexillum taken with an OoO in HD.

Also, I support the idea of allowing the community to choose the appearance of the cape. User:Exor Solieve 21:09, April 13, 2011 (UTC)

Discuss till the cows come home Seriously, if we discuss it for a few weeks and come to no consensus, then we can point to this thread later as to why Gaz gets to make the call.--Degenret01 21:34, April 13, 2011 (UTC)

Why do we have to have a Fleur-de-lis in all the designs? - 222 talk 03:39, April 14, 2011 (UTC)

Thats just the logo our small group liked, it can be changed when necassary. we were thinking of doing a wiki-esque style sphere to complement the parchment. Floppyc5 03:50, April 14, 2011 (UTC)
It's better than the shwoopy thing, amirite? Christine 04:00, April 14, 2011 (UTC)

Comment - This thread needs a roadmap. There's nothing being discussed. I say we should organize this into steps; Step 1. Spend a few days time waiting for any other users to submit screenshots of their cape ideas. Step 2. Narrow the ideas down to the best ones. Step 3. Determine consensus. The reason why this thread appears doomed to fail is only because there was no direction for it to go clearly stated in the original post, so with that said, do we have any more submissions? melonWatermelon slice.png 18:58, April 14, 2011 (UTC)

Agreed. Floppyc5 20:07, April 14, 2011 (UTC)

I once again vote that Gaz be allowed to pick the design and we all have to live with it. (wszx) 00:12, April 16, 2011 (UTC)

Im happy with Gaz deciding - Per above. Sensible person/No chance we'll all agree - [Pharos] 09:55, April 17, 2011 (UTC)

Great colours -
many of the player in my clan joined due to colours, there bright and colourful, related to saradomin colours, and looks like Monaco, i don't suggest the logos, but the colours might work. this image shows how it would work on a group, any other armour, the colours really good, if you can make a preview, you'll see what i mean :) --Project Myface Parsonsda Talk | Sign Here | Project Myface Project Myface 12:10, April 18, 2011 (UTC)

why are you so obsessed with monaco? --Iiii I I I 18:45, April 21, 2011 (UTC)

To those who say let Gaz decide: - If you don't care and would rather let Gaz pick a design and just live with it to save from a thread or discussion, why not just let there be a thread or discussion, don't participate if you don't care, and just live with whatever results? You're being difficult for no good reason. melonWatermelon slice.png 18:12, April 21, 2011 (UTC)

Not true, we are infact doing the opposite. We are essentially entrusting Gaz with our "vote" as that is essentially what this will come down to if it continues. Not because we arbitrarily picked someone but because we trust gaz to make a fair decision that nobody will RAEG at. - [Pharos] 18:41, April 21, 2011 (UTC)
Huh. Honestly did not think of it that way. I interpreted them as being more like "this thread is unnecessary, let Gaz decide" than "I vote for whatever Gaz comes up with." Sorry. melonWatermelon slice.png 13:05, April 22, 2011 (UTC)
Vote for #6 and #1 - The wiki is a community. The clan is a community. The cape and vex are the symbols of those communites. So let the community decide on those symbols. Per Melon, if you don't care about the actual result, and just want Gaz to decide, then why contribute to the discussion at all? So, for the first vote on the given options, I'd like to see the Yin Yang or Sandy designs as our symbol. They have rich colours, they don't look tacky, like a lot of the other capes we've had the misfortune of seeing, and it especially signifies our wiki-ness, unlike Parson's theme.

Notice of Intent - Unless any more discussion takes place in the next day, the current cape will remain as the official Clan cape. Hunter cape (t).png Sentra246Blue hallowe'en mask.png 07:30, May 16, 2011 (UTC)
