The Legacy mode BETA was released today, and with it, the "old school" style interface. Although it'll be a while before this goes Live, (if it even does); But when it does, I think we should keep the consistency of the RS3 interfaces.

As you can see from the pictures I've posted below, a lot of the essential interfaces have become brown, to match the Legacy's interface: 0O0QiKv.png O6LvtfL.png

What I'm proposing is basically a policy or a guideline thingy that says to keep using RS3 interfaces, to A) Keep consistent, B) Avoid confusion and C) Keep up to date. --dDbvitC.pngScuzzy Betahib8CAd.png 17:17, June 16, 2014 (UTC)

Use RS3 interfaces - How dumb. This is going to become a nightmare. sssSp7p.pngIjLCqFF.png 17:34, June 16, 2014 (UTC)

But then legacy nubs will complain about their preferred interface design not being here.

Use RS3 interfaces - ^ Even though I said that, use RS3 interfaces cuz its more "modern" imo.  ChaoticShadow Zaros symbol.png  Talk  Guest book  Sandbox  Contribs   16:52 June 17, 2014 (UTC)  

Use RS3 interfaces It's the default and the modern interface. If we allow legacy interfaces then we'd have to allow legacy lifepoints and stuff too. We should really just pretend legacy doesn't exist outside of its own article. Adventurer's log Wahisietel (Talk) Quest map icon.png 16:56, June 17, 2014 (UTC)

Wait, what do you mean? We are allowing legacy hitpoints and monster stats. We would have to incorporate legacy stats for all monsters. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 19:25, June 26, 2014 (UTC)

Prefer RS3, don't disallow Legacy - NIS is the main interface system while Legacy is secondary, so we should use RS3 as a standard. However, we should allow Legacy interfaces and not mark them as obsolete or anything, but mention that there is a preference for RS3 in order to maintain consistency. We could create a template saying that the image uses Legacy interfaces where RS3 is preferred. But in general, don't replace Legacy with RS3 just because RS3.

Or we could just use Retake image... sssSp7p.pngIjLCqFF.png 17:30, June 17, 2014 (UTC)
Meh, only consistency hardly warrants that. Obviously, when choosing between a Legacy image that is of higher quality than an RS3 image of the same subject, the former should be picked. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 19:13, June 17, 2014 (UTC)

Use RS3 interfaces - I prefer if we stick to the current RS3 interfaces for the majority of our images to keep with consistency. pjJ4pBM.png Abyssal vine whip.png 17:40, June 17, 2014 (UTC)

Quality over consistency - Per Fswe, if we have a higher quality Legacy image than RS3 for whatever reason, keep that. In all cases I can think of, however, this just means use the Legacy version of the image (if it already exists that is) until someone gets a RS3 one. bad_fetustalk 18:43, June 19, 2014 (UTC)

Rs3 interfaces only - Per Wahisietel. 5-x Talk 18:54, June 19, 2014 (UTC)

Disallow Legacy interfaces - Per Wahi. Temujin 05:09, June 21, 2014 (UTC)

Only allow legacy when directly talking about legacy - NIS interfaces as standard unless directly talking about doing something in legacy, e.g. a strategy guide for a killing a boss in legacy mode. Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 07:51, June 22, 2014 (UTC)

Disallow Legacy - Per Wahisietel. Blaze_fire.png12.png 17:35, June 26, 2014 (UTC)

Closed - There is a consensus here to use exclusively RuneScape 3 interface images unless the topic at hand pertains exclusively to Legacy mode. Topics which are merely applicable to Legacy mode do not qualify for Legacy interface images. --LiquidTalk 20:22, June 30, 2014 (UTC)
