With 2012 here, and lots of updates being poured into RuneScape, and a new RuneScape website, I figure it's time for us to follow the trend and do a little updating ourselves!

There have been numerous batches of graphical updates to the game recently, which have given us access to some marvelous concept art, and after talking to Cook about a new mainpage, I've added some to the mainpage. I've also merged some sections, and reformatted the UOTM box. There is also a new "Forums" box, which allows you to access and use the Wiki forums directly from the mainpage. There have also been new table designs, and a resize of the title, as well as new images next to the randomskill templates. If this is adopted as the new mainpage, however, there would have to be one change. The UOTM template would have to be changed to fit the current style. I can make one in my subspace if need be for an example. So, is it time to join the trend and get our own little graphical update?

Due to the fact that the page itself was updated so many times during the last thread, I've made a redux of the thread to show off the new mainpage, based more heavily off of the design of the current mainpage. If you voted on the old thread, please vote again!

Comment - I don't mind it, but the Events section should be higher up on the page, like between Wiki news and Runescape news. Just my two cents. Raglough 13:18, February 9, 2012 (UTC)

I'm not "voting" - Why did you make this when there are still kinks to be ironed out? sssSp7p.pngIjLCqFF.png 13:25, February 9, 2012 (UTC)

With how little the changes - I'm left wondering what's the point. svco4bY.png3Gf5N2F.png 16:44, February 9, 2012 (UTC)

Oppose - Too much bad coding. Overlaps very badly in Monobook at 912 pixels of width. Changes from the current main page are meaningless. (But I still like the runes.)

Changed to Oppose - Per Proof, and I'm starting to think that this is a bit unneeded as of now- however, the runes will be a nice change. S T Y G 21:41, February 9, 2012 (UTC)

Oppose - The only changes I like are the runes. Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 22:31, February 9, 2012 (UTC)

Oppose, again - Why a new thread? Ronan Talk 22:58, February 9, 2012 (UTC)

Oppose - The only thing I liked about the original design was the originality. Right now, all the changes have been watered-down to what I believe is an inferior alternative to the current main page. 222 talk 05:47, February 10, 2012 (UTC)

Still oppose - Again, I like the runes, but Proof has a very strong point with the monobook formatting, as well as most of my points from the previous thread still stand. Which does make me ask, why the new thread? Hofmic Talk 06:14, February 10, 2012 (UTC)

Request for Closure - I'll make a new thread just proposing the runes. Adam SavageTalk 13:15, February 15, 2012 (UTC)

Closed - Creator request along with overall opposition. Runes discussion moved to Forum:Add Runes to Mainpage. sssSp7p.pngIjLCqFF.png 14:00, February 15, 2012 (UTC)
