Since we just changed the favicon, and everyone is talking about updating the logo, I made this concept (can be modified if necessary) logo for the Wiki:
[[File:RuneScape Wiki Logo Concept.png]]
I think it matches the color scheme of the new favicon pretty accurately. This is only a concept (only took me like 5 minutes to make), but if you guys support the idea of changing the logo to something similar to this, I can always make a new version in a different size, etc. Also, if you don't support, please leave feedback as to why instead of just typing something like "it sucks. you have no talent". If you don't tell me what's wrong with it, I can't change it. -- Second-abyssal-whip.png  Bigd56   [talk] [highscores] 01:20, 7 November 2008 (UTC)

Could you compress it to about 30kb or so without losing much quality? In its current form it does look very nice. May be coloured blue in the near 03:40, 7 November 2008 (UTC)
I'm not a fan of Text only logos. Looks very plain. Doesnt come across as runescape OR wiki themed. --Gold ore.png Mercifull UK serv.svg (Talk) 09:18, 7 November 2008 (UTC)
You mean, to replace Image:Wiki.png? No. It's very... boring, compared to the current one. I don't think it should match the favicon. Favicons are small, they can't fit much on them. But you can fit a lot onto a big logo. And where has everyone been talking about updating the logo? I only remember people talking about just fixing the logo for HD and transparency, and only changing the favicon. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 03:44, 8 November 2008 (UTC)
Our current logo is tacky imho. It does nothing to distinguish us from the hundreds of RS sites out there. Earthere 04:47, 8 November 2008 (UTC)
Yes it does. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 12:11, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

Apparently "plain text" is boring... so I added an abstract style background, and reized the image to be around the same size as the current logo. I kinda liked the plain text one, but this is the most unique runescape fansite logo you will ever see:

The first was better imho. Earthere 03:35, 9 November 2008 (UTC)
This one's even worse. It doesn't look RuneScapey or wiki-like at all. Why would we change Image:Wiki.png? The current logo is great. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 03:38, 9 November 2008 (UTC)
In shooping terms. The darkened space behind "Wiki" is a bit ambiguous. Is it a poor gradient? A weird shadow? It also looks purposely separate from the runes on the side, which makes me suspect the creator didn't add transparency to the individual runes. There are over 10 runes; we need to cut that number down as it "might" not qualify for fair use. ... and honestly it looks somewhat tacky. Also, the "reflection" of RuneScape looks terrible. All in all Wiki.png isn't bad--it's better than the logos of pretty much every other fan site, so it's tolerable. But it isn't perfect either. Earthere 03:53, 9 November 2008 (UTC)
I'm not quite sure what "shooping" is, but i am quite sure that the current logo was only a slight improvement on the [!Wiki.png previous logo], the only real differences being the runes were derived from the detail images of the runes and the background was made truly transparent so as to work with skins such as the [ gaming skin]. The idea of course being a minor makeover on the logo so as to be both tried and true and yet polished up a bit (much like HD in the actual game itself). Perhaps you could contact the creator of the prior version and ask them their thoughts on the matter, personally i've had no luck in that department. ~kytti khat 04:32, 9 November 2008 (UTC)

How can something look wiki like anyways? I can always make something new... but I really want to try to avoid using the rune images... kinda tacky really... -- Second-abyssal-whip.png  Bigd56   [talk] [highscores] 04:53, 9 November 2008 (UTC

I don't see what you mean. The rune images look fine, and how is having ten runes on the logo violating "Fair Use"? And, I kind of also disagree with Earthere on the reflection and shadow... I actually think they make the logo look better. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 12:37, 9 November 2008 (UTC)
99% chance it isn't copyvio, even smaller chance that jagex would actually care. c teng, I'm just giving my two cents, nothing to worry about... May be coloured blue in the near 04:27, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

Oppose - We just changed the logo like a couple months ago (correct me if I'm wrong). We don't need another one. Seriously. Besides, I like the current one better. --Rollback crown.svg Spencer (Talk | Edits | Contribs) 23:32, 9 November 2008 (UTC) Postpone - At least for a few months, as per first reason listed by Spencermac (sorry I can't say i like one or the other better). I would however be curious (like a cat) to see discussion (not images) of what elements would be desired in a new logo. ~kytti khat 04:22, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

I like the current logo. It's iconic for us. I think we'd really need a fancy shmancy new logo (and as well as a discussion from the whole registered community) to break away from what we have now. Does anyone remember the last logo change discussion? The whole community (more or less) participated, like 30 posibilities were submitted, but the idea from the Belgian (or perhaps a different country?) guy prevailed, and we have used it ever since.

  • Comment - Just wondering, where is the discussion for that logo change? Is it in one of the old Forums? And I also agree with your reasons for not changing the logo. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 02:34, 25 November 2008 (UTC)
I was actually looking for it the other day in the old forum archives, but I unfortunately could not find it. I couldn't find much of anything, really. Dragon medium helm! Whaddaya know?Chiafriend12Better than rune!I have 12 friends. 22:01, 27 November 2008 (UTC)
