Doing my best to leech off [[w:c:cod|CoD Wiki]], I've thought up copied adapted the idea of a community box/section. Quite self explanatory: stick that box over there onto the main page, as shown in this sandbox. I thought it would be a good idea, as it would bring a bit more attention to our clan chat, Facebook, Twitter, IRC, etc. Also, it fills up a bit of the empty space at the bottom of the right column Wink. Also, if there are any changes you think would help, and perhaps a few new links, suggestions are welcome.

Support - This is an utter necessity. (I think we should have a link to RS:OS in there) --クールネシトーク 15:29, August 18, 2011 (UTC)

Support - Might it be worth throwing in a mention on the Events team too such as: "Participate in wiki events!". Also, might it be possible to create a new icon for the CC chat? Since that suggested one looks pretty ugly whilst pixelated... Otherwise, great idea! RSN: Warthog Rhys Talk Completionist's cape... Coming soon. 17:45, August 18, 2011 (UTC)

Meh, I think the space would be better used for something besides the events team, considering that the community box would be directly adjacent to the events team box, factoring in ads. I would prefer to use that extra space for us to actually give our clan chat's name instead of just giving a logo that links to its page. ʞooɔ 07:36, August 20, 2011 (UTC)

Support - Looks good What I've done Ciphrius Kane Talk 17:48, August 18, 2011 (UTC)

Support - Per nom. This will help fill up more of the space on the right column, and would bring more attention to the features. Smithing (talk | contribs) 17:52, August 18, 2011 (UTC)

Mmkay - Just not orange, orange is being used. And those images must have a link, otherwise they're next to useless. And yes, add events. But then, it seems like a good idea. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 14:19, August 19, 2011 (UTC)

Support - Though the over-sized clan button image looks a little odd... Ts4kNfA.png 01:54, August 20, 2011 (UTC)

Support - Why not. Have it show in-game events like the castle wars event we are doing also. 20080201180922!Purple_partyhat.png Hunter103 Talk My weapon of choice, only after a zamorak godsword.

Comment - I've added a link to the Events Team, as suggested. I will be keeping orange as the colour for the time being, as it looks the most suitable, and is a different shade to the other orange themed box on the main page. I'm open to suggestions for superior colours however. 222 talk 03:18, August 20, 2011 (UTC)

Support - but only if the box is fuchsia Wink Andrew talk 06:55, August 20, 2011 (UTC)

Support box, oppose position - While the idea of the is great, I still feel the featured image box should remain at the top of the page as it, well, looks good. Hunter cape (t).png Sentra246Blue hallowe'en mask.png 09:28, August 20, 2011 (UTC)

Oh yeah, agreed, forgot that. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 15:16, August 20, 2011 (UTC)

Neutral - Seems quite good. The idea would definitely bring up the community spirit up but is it really needed? I was thinking more of hyperlinks at the top. --Runecrafting.gif Mo 55 55 Talk|Sign 13:33, August 20, 2011 (UTC)

Can you explain what you mean with the hyperlinks. --Henneyj 22:16, August 21, 2011 (UTC)

Support - Will make the mainpage look more even. I think the colour if fine, the existing 'orange' is different enough, we've got several different blues so two different shades of orange isn't really a problem. I agree with Sentra about the position, it's much nicer having featured image near the top, so I'd stick the community box between f image and on this day. It would be nice to add the clan chat name onto it, would only be a short bit of text - "Clan Chat: RSW" or something to that effect. Guessing noone wants to add a forum link :P --Henneyj 22:16, August 21, 2011 (UTC)

Closed - Done. Suppa chuppa Talk 15:54, August 25, 2011 (UTC)
