I think that something is missing from this whole discussion. Rather than just moving a few little bits around the page we might be missing an opportunity to really give the wiki a fresh new look. Firstly should be the adoption of a new logo (yes i know this has been discussed before) something similar to the one used on the French wiki; see below.

http://images.wikia.com/runescape/fr/images/b/bc/Wiki.png

Then we should think about skinning the entire Wiki. The Dutch wiki has made some attempt at doing this but it's a little bit sloppy. I think given a bit of time and careful chosing we could really give this wiki a new coat of paint. I'm loving the ideas put forward for the layout of the content on the page i just think its time for a completely new background look and colour scheme. I never liked us using the default Wikia skins anyway. --Gold ore.png Mercifull UK serv.svg (Talk) 09:56, 28 July 2009 (UTC)



I guess since we are re-doing the whole main page, it would be nice to change the logo also. Santa hat.png Powers38 おはようヾ(´・ω・`) 10:02, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

Support - I don't know about the rest of you, but I quite like the look of this logo. In the previous discussion we had about this, quite a number of logos that were proposed were either low-quality or they looked bad. This one looks really good though. And I agree with Mercifull, a new coat of paint (as he puts it) with proper planning and consideration could look really good for this wiki. C.ChiamTalk 10:06, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

Comment - What happened to RuneScape:Theme? --Quarenon  Talk 10:08, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

Put the logo in a different discussion please. Adult chameleon (automatic).png Anurin Talk · Sign! . 11:54, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

Moved. I just hope this doesn't bring in a flood of logo designs. C.ChiamTalk 12:01, 28 July 2009 (UTC)
I agree. A flood of new logo suggestions isnt really what I am hoping for here. What i would like to see is a fresh complete new look that is accompanied with a logo which matches the style of a new theme. I think something like the logo pictured above would look good and seemless in a new design with minimal rework. --Gold ore.png Mercifull UK serv.svg (Talk) 14:19, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

Huge support - I was going to nominate this picture for our logo but saw another discussion about it so I didn't do so. Runecrafting.gif Mo 55 55 Talk|Sign 14:23, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

Oppose - I just prefer our current logo. We've had it for as long as I've been here. Don't see why we should change it. Now that's a throwing weapon!Doucher4000******r4000I'll eat you! 15:58, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

love it!!! Dude TACOS! (talkcontribs) forgot to sign this comment on 15:27, August 6, 2009 (EDT).

Comment - Please note that this proposal is for a whole new theme not just for a new logo. I agree that the current logo is alright and that it goes well with the current theme and should be kept for the wikia gaming skin. However I am talking about na whole new look, and this new look would require a logo more fitting with the design. This is NOT a logo only proposal. --Gold ore.png Mercifull UK serv.svg (Talk) 16:21, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

EPIC Support - Long awaited. ço¬Ø

Support - Old discussions regarding the logo discussion can be found here [1] [2]. Some of the designs were much more professional and cleaner than the one we have now. I think the new one above looks pretty damn cool. Cap and goggles.pngTEbuddy 17:30, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

You can add the following code to you user css to see the above logo in action, for any proposed logo, just change the url to the direct link to it:
#wiki_logo, #p-logo a {

}

Strong Support - The default Sapphire monaco theme is rather boring, don't take me wrong, the logo is nice looking, but its dull. I really like the logo for the french wiki, we should totally get something similar. Then we need to make the skin match the logo, and it'll look awesome. --— Enigma 22:31, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

Comment - In my mind I pictured something like this [3]. With help from Catcrewser I was able to make it. I am currently using this skin and it can be found at User:9the Enigma9/monaco.css --— Enigma 05:30, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

HUGE FRICKEN OPPOSE - How many times are we going to discuss this before people realize that we don't need another damn logo?? Andrew talk 07:55, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

Comment Please read, repeat READ, repeat READ the frakking thread! This is not, repeat NOT, repeat NOT a new logo suggestion thread. This thread is discussing an entirely NEW theme that will give people a choice between the current monaco gaming skin (in which the current logo works really well and I am NOT suggestiong we change) and a completely new Runescapey design. Please consider this and if you still feel the same please discuss why you are such strongly opposed. --Gold ore.png Mercifull UK serv.svg (Talk) 08:22, 29 July 2009 (UTC)
RS:CONSENSUS#Not_permanent. Just because the previous discussion ended with us keeping our current logo, does not mean that we can't discuss it again. You don't have to overreact, you know. C.ChiamTalk 08:41, 29 July 2009 (UTC)
Hey, let's not loose our cool. --— Enigma 10:21, 29 July 2009 (UTC)
Apologies but it's quite annoying reading an oppose from someone who has clearly not read the proposal properly. Several times I have stated this is not just a new logo proposal and several people have commented about previous logo discussions etc (see below "another great logo"). --Gold ore.png Mercifull UK serv.svg (Talk) 11:07, 29 July 2009 (UTC)
I realize that it isn't just about the logo but I didn't feel like commenting on anything else right then and there. I apologize if it seemed like I overreacted. Andrew talk 18:45, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

Support as long as the new theme isn't white text on a brown background, like on the RSOF. I HATE that color scheme and find it depressing and tiring to look at! kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 03:53, 6 August 2009 (UTC)

Support - I think it's great,it's not to complicated and as many other said it has that Runescape look. Swiz Talk Review Me 16:14, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

Oppose - Remember we are a sensible, mature encyclopaedia, not an ordinary fansite, and therefore should have a suitable, sensible logo and theme.--Joe Click Here for Awesomeness 16:40, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

Comment - Before I comment on this proposal, I'd like to make sure I'm fully sure of its implications.

  • 1.Will this be set as the default skin or as an additional skin option (like our other RS skin)?
  • 2.If this new logo is implemented will it affect the ther skins and effectively replace our current logo or is it only for the proposed logo?
  • 3.Now perpartaining to the precise purpose of this particular discussion. If this discussion passes is it simply approving the go ahead of the designing of a new skin with this logo, to later be independently approved by the community, or is the skin and logo change included in this discussion.-- 23:35, 6 August 2009 (UTC)

Strong Support - I love the new logo; no offence, but all the people who can't give reasonable explanations to keep the old on should stop living in the past. I think this should be the new default theme! -- Last Descendant of Armadyl Daedalus III 16:46, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

Strong Support - that is amazing it gives the feeling of runescape insead of the blank feeling, it would look good if the who site was brown, then i world be runescape on every page i visits.Parsonsda 17:59, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

Support - As some people already said i think the current it does not have RuneScape feel in it. It should changed to something more RuneScape-ish. King Vivil Talk 01:10, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

Strong Support - A decent logo, that is. Give a great feeling of runescape, keeping with the wikia trend --Quest point cape.png Xp5 Chaos Talk Astral rune.png 08:34, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

Strong Support - I was thinking just today about how much a change like this is needed. Iagree that the current theme (and the logo too for that matter) does not look very RS-like. I definately think that this change is long awaited, and well needed (and personally, I would like to see a theme of stone, or of ancient scroles). --Summoning-icon.png Monkey525467 - TS 13:39, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

Support/Comment - My opinion isn't worth much, I've only been here a while and have contributed to but a few of the thousands of topics and articles here, but for what it's worth, I'd support this idea. The current logo, while satisfactory, seems old, like the old RuneScape. Perhaps now, what with the release of HD and Mark Gerhard's new running of the community, it's time for a lick of paint. I would also go with the idea of making a skin for the site. I'd offer to do some art work or something but I don't think it's up to me. Asparagoose 15:35, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

All editors are equal here! Just because you're new doesn't mean your opinion is any less valuable. And if you wanted to make some concept art, I'm pretty sure no one here would be opposed in the least! The worst thing that might happen is your artwork might not get used, but if you're ok with that by all means make some artwork and upload it to ImageShack for us to see it! kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 16:00, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

Question- Well I think it might be fun to try and design a skin. What I am wondering is if it is legal to use a background that Jagex uses on the Runescape home page (i.e. the castle walls)?  Magic-icon.png HS F07gano Thieving ‎ 14:59, 9 August 2009 (UTC)

Support - I support a little redoing. The fact the wiki is so huge, it welcomes a makeover. In my opinion, we should stick with Monaco since the other skins don't have widgets, but make the logo a bit more "RS" like (like the French wiki), and have some cool pictures on the background strips. It wouldn't take that long, just a redo of the css. {{SUBST:User:Tigernose/sig}} 13:03, 10 August 2009 (UTC)


Read this before going any further
This proposal is proposing that we change the default skin and logo to something else. Now, there is no current proposed skin or logo at all, this doesn't mean we're going to have some crazy background or blinding colours, it just meanss we're going to have people propose new skins with a matching logo if this proposal is passed. If you oppose, you are saying you don't want the default skin to change, and if that is not the reason you wrote "Oppose", you are not actually opposing. If you are supporting, it means you DO want the default skin to change, but a certain skin you were thinking of, just being supportative of change. — Enigma 00:24, 8 August 2009 (UTC)


Support getting a new default theme - A nice 'professional' RuneScapey theme and logo without copying the main site is in order methinks. Bring on the suggestions! Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 18:35, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

[[File:RuneLogo2.GIF]]

This one is a great combo of the wiki idea and runescape theme. I think this logo is the best possible option of anything I have seen before. Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 19:06, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

Oppose/Comment - We are not a Wikipedia, we are a RuneScape Wiki. The first design combines RuneScape, simplicity, and the fact we are an RS Wiki. Lets try to not have another mass of logo proposals and lets instead do what we are doing in the new main page discussion, a few different designs discussing what we like and don't of each design and then create a merged design - TehKittyCatTalk Wikian-Book 19:11, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

CommentI know you mean well Steler, but can we please try and not Hijack this topic or turn it into a "oh this one, and this one too". Thats partly the reason the last logo vote was rejected, it got way too confusing. This discussion if anything would be a precursor to an actual organized vote where all logo candidates should be submitted and then we can create a separate thread with all of the candidates listed so we can vote.Cap and goggles.pngTEbuddy 19:46, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

Comment People are still missing the point. This is not just a proposal for a new logo (there have been other discussions in the past about that). This is about a whole brand new look with a much more "Runescapey" feel. If you want to propose a logo for THIS theme that we use at the moment (the blue and white wikia gaming skin) then please create your own Yew grove thread. --Gold ore.png Mercifull UK serv.svg (Talk) 21:57, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

I am not sure how this skin thing is going to work. will you be able to choose one skin or the other? if that is so, this logo seams to be good for the other skin we are working on as this one fits with the current skin (that all being IMO) Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 23:48, 28 July 2009 (UTC)
Here is how it works: You have the choice of the wiki's custom monaco theme or you can choose to use any of the other skins available on Wikia(monobook and all of the monaco variants). - TehKittyCatTalk Wikian-Book 23:58, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

How about polishing up our current logo?

[[File:Wiki logo maybe.png]] I have just got the current one and replaced the rather old and tatty runes with CLFMs ones, which are better and smoother. (Apart from the Chaos Rune, which I made)--Joe Click Here for Awesomeness 11:09, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

Please, please please, don't hijack this proposal with your idea. You are only adding to the confusion on that this Yew Grove is about. If you want to discuss tidying up the current logo to be used on the current skin then please create your own YG thread. This page is for discussion of an entirely NEW skin and theme which would require a new logo infitting with the design, it is not a proposal to change the existing logo as is. --Gold ore.png Mercifull UK serv.svg (Talk) 11:39, 29 July 2009 (UTC)
Comment - Since the only difference is switching to a higher quality, I think the change to this version of the current logo could be immediate. Since the other discussion is a theme+logo this will have no affect on that as this could be temporary until it is done. - TehKittyCatTalk Wikian-Book 15:51, 29 July 2009 (UTC)
Comment - I am asking some admins to do it...--Joe Click Here for Awesomeness 15:52, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

Comment - Could we please have a consensus for using this logo until a more runescapey one is sorted out.--Joe Click Here for Awesomeness 17:49, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

Comment - The current logo is nothing but a rehash of the previous version, i recommend we go with something new and fresh, i really like the "French" RS wiki version listed above, the one based off of the wikipedia logo seems overdone on too many wikis imo. ~kytti khat 03:07, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

Now things really start getting confusing...

I see now that Joe has split off some discussion on a 'New logo to go with new proposed skin'. This is not what I wanted to happen! I am fully open to suggestions on a new logo to complement a new "Runescapey" feel and welcome them to be posted here.

However, none of the other logo suggestions posted so far match this brief. The two logos have posted before in other YG threads or a rehash of the current monaco logo. These would NOT fit with a new skin design. I am starting to lose the will to live here and I think the sooner I get my house decorated and I can get on photoshop to show a true proof of concept the better. Please can the other YG thread be 'locked' or deleted and then can we get back to discussing a new theme again? --Gold ore.png Mercifull UK serv.svg (Talk) 12:46, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

Ok, I definately don't want the Wiki to look like that. That is a fansite made by a bunch of 14 year olds. As it currently is, it looks proffesional and encyclopedic. Now that's a throwing weapon!Doucher4000******r4000I'll eat you! 20:40, 29 July 2009 (UTC)
I agree, the farthest we should go would be [[w:c:Zelda|Zeldapedia]]. We need to stay familiar, clean, and professional. - TehKittyCatTalk Wikian-Book 20:47, 29 July 2009 (UTC)
Flaming people based on age is not a good argument. May I point you instead to the Battlestar Wiki of where i am a b'crat. http://en.battlestarwiki.org/wiki/Main_Page see how a unique design can make a wiki look totally awesome. --Gold ore.png Mercifull UK serv.svg (Talk) 21:20, 29 July 2009 (UTC)
I would like to say that while I do think that the Battlestar Wiki's skin is nice and well-made, I would prefer a wiki to be generally basic in skin ("generally basic" meaning that only colors and backgrounds change, so it's basically the same look), using familiar link placement, keeping navigation a sinch.
Also, I find Zeldapedia's color choices in their skin too vibrant. I wouldn't even want to go that far. Dragon medium helm! Whaddaya know?Chiafriend12Better than rune!I have 12 friends. 23:06, 29 July 2009 (UTC)
Plain and simple can look really nice, too. We don't need a fancy background. --— Enigma 23:54, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

Comment - So what is this proposing? A new skin and logo or an alternate skin and logo? --— Enigma 23:54, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

A new skin and logo which would be set to default. The theme we are using at the moment would still be in the skin choices. --Gold ore.png Mercifull UK serv.svg (Talk) 07:46, 30 July 2009 (UTC)
Ah, I see. Well all we need now is consensus, then I think maybe we should do a feedback collection like we're doing for the main page. --— Enigma 03:26, 31 July 2009 (UTC)

Request for SiteNotice - It's a pretty big thing to be changing the theme and this topic is dead. We need a SiteNotice. --— Enigma 22:07, 2 August 2009 (UTC)

I think a site notice would be good. It's a big change for the look and feel of the wiki if it goes ahead. --Gold ore.png Mercifull UK serv.svg (Talk) 08:03, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

Complete oppose and request for sitenotice - Why can't we just leave it the same? If it ain't broke, don't fix it - and the skin is fine. ~ Fire Surge icon.png Sentry Telos Talk  05:55, 5 August 2009 (UTC)

That saying should only be applied to the situation if something is trying to be "fixed" that doesn't need to be improved. With this theme, it will feel more like a RuneScape Wiki and less like a Default-Gaming-Wiki-That's-never-changed-the-skin-forever-and-is-boring (I can't think of something clever for that sentence, sorry) --— Enigma 06:04, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
Comment - We look like an encyclopedia, and not like some silly fansite with some fanart as a background. Having it like this makes it easier to read anyhow. Now that's a throwing weapon!Doucher4000******r4000I'll eat you! 15:04, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
Look at the images of the draft theme which you seemed to not notice ([5] is the one of the main page.) It keeps it's simplicity, but has a more RuneScapey feel. — Enigma 17:31, 5 August 2009 (UTC)

Support, and SiteNotice - A new theme is what this Wiki really needs. A simple one, not like the theme my friends made... Wink Miasmic Blitz icon.png Hapi007 Talk! Sign! . 15:15, 5 August 2009 (UTC)

Comment Are we considering changing the monobook as well? I honestly have NO freaking idea why you guys prefer monaco. It's so much more hard to use. 21:30, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
I've only made a new skin for monaco, but anyone can make a new skin for monobook as well. — Enigma 02:20, 6 August 2009 (UTC)

Proposal

I propose that we make changes to [[MediaWiki:Monaco.css]] in accordance to User:9the Enigma9/monaco.css for a more RuneScapey theme.

Support - As nominator. Also Request for SiteNotice, it's a pretty big thing to be changing the theme of the wiki. --— Enigma 07:17, 2 August 2009 (UTC) I realized we should pass the proposal whether or not to actually change the theme. Nevermind.

How many times have I gotta say this? OPPOSE!!! - If you don't like the skin,change it in your Preferences! I do like Joe's idea,cuz it doesn't change the idea,it just makes it better. Besides,what's wrong with the default colour anyway merc? You just say "I don't like it"

over and over...Besides,you say you want to change it,but you don't even know what you want to change it to! Another opinion of mine,we shouldn't use something like "RS Wiki" in our logo,because I highly believe as a wiki,we shouldn't be shortening everything to be convienent,we should take the extra time to look professional. --

A theme perhaps...

On YouTube, there is a good looking background for someone's channe;... but does it look a bit dull? http://www.youtube.com/user/NoobyToons

How 'Bout we make it more like Runescape

Well, this is probably not the best idea out there, ... but. I think we should have a skin more like that of the RS we see when we actually visit the site. It might arowse more people to like the site. 'cuz when i first started using this site i did not know if it was going tobe good. I thought it might have been a joke. But i had no more of a choice than to use this. Kinda like the nooby toons only brown and goldish-yellow.--Gozoboro 01:23, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

I'm liking what i'm seeing of the Dutch RS Wiki, i don't see why we can't borrow and extend pieces from both that and the French Wiki, where are our inspired photoshoppers (or gimps)? A call to arms for the graphically inclined seems in order here. ~kytti khat 03:11, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

Wait for the new main page - I suggest we wait until the new Main Page design is hammered out so that we know the proposed theme looks good with our new design. But that shouldn't stop artistic people from making their own designs. So far, I've seen some ideas in use on other pages, but nothing yet original for us to use. Any designers interested?...

The waiting for a new main page seems like a good idea.--Gozoboro 16:44, 9 August 2009 (UTC) Yes sure ill help...Red partyhat.png shadowguy547 Talk Constitution cape (t).png

Yeah, I think we should wait for the new main page and then we'll see if it works. We can always use Runescape's past versions and make it possible to choose their own theme. I could help but I'm not very good at Gimp. --Wizard hat (blue).pngVornazar NuiRune scimitar detail.png

Support Tollerach Wait for the new main page!

Support + Support Tollerach - From my perspective this site would appear more professional using a similar layout to the actual Runescape website, rather than slathering on a couple grunge textures and in-game screen-shots of scenery. I don't like the dutch skin for several reasons, one being the page space at the top is larger than necessary. Zig

Differnet logo ideas

I have made a few different logos from scratch for RS wiki based on the one ontop this page.

NO, NO, NO, NO! First of all, first of all, DO NOT HIJACK THIS FORUM INTO A LOGO CHANGING FORUM! second, they are all jpg, so they dont have a chance at all. This forum is only to get consensus or no consensus whether or not we will change the theme and logo. Please READ, repeat READ, repeat READ most of the forum before posting, this goes for all of you. — Enigma 19:13, 16 August 2009 (UTC)
