So as I'm sure clan citadels will suck, but be the coolest new thing and I'll want to try them anyways. I was taking another look at clan cape. I changed it around (and tried to get it back, and it may not be just right), but here's what I came up with (left is my idea, right is current one):

I think it looks a lot better and it actually noticeable/recognizable. It's less bland than before, and a lot of people in the chat liked it at the time. Plenty of people would have liked nothing better than to murder me though. Anyways. I definitely think we should change the dragonhead to a bird, although I think changing the colors to something else would be good...

Also...these don't have to be the only two options. I just think it needs to change and I'm open to anything else that looks good, less bland, and more recognizable. HaloTalk 15:59, July 8, 2011 (UTC)

Discussion[edit source]

Comment - I can't really see the design well, as the dark blue blends into the black, especially at this small size. Would you mind posting some larger pics? 222 talk 11:10, July 8, 2011 (UTC)

Ummmm...not really. But also this would be the size it would be in yeah. HaloTalk 15:57, July 8, 2011 (UTC)

Comment - Perhaps you could have a light-brown, dark brown kinda thing to represent our theme? Matt (t) 11:16, July 8, 2011 (UTC)

I don't think brown ever looks good on a cape. It's not so much about our "theme" as the cape being recognizable and something that people want to wear (when they aren't wearing another for combat/some kind of skilling). HaloTalk 15:57, July 8, 2011 (UTC)
Don't you diss jedi cloaks! 22:58, July 8, 2011 (UTC)

Comment - I tried the brown theme for all of five hours (give or take two) from the previous thread and people related it to Ugthanki dung. So we went with the current theme with slightly less cyan colours for the symbols as Gaz or Pharos had left it at in the beginning. Personally, I'm not a fan of black capes or cloaks (unless it's the trimming of the cloak) and navy blue or darker icons doesn't seem to represent anything I'd relate to this wiki. I'd like to wait until the Clan Citadels have arrived to begin changing if that at most (since I expect disputes over what should be used in what hotspot, etc.). I like the cloak as it was previously. Last time I saw that blue and white together it was of the dreadful Monaco skin. Ryan PM 06:24, July 9, 2011 (UTC)

Comment - We had some really great ideas when the camp came out, but the thread was closed before they could be properly utilized, and the ideas were left behind. I really think we should revert back to that theme, specifically the first and sixth designs, as they would be far more recognisable than the current cape, have a wiki-themed look, and feature rich, classy colours (I strongly disagree with the notion that the capes resemble camel dung -.-). The current cape just looks too pale and bland to me. Ronan Talk 21:22, July 10, 2011 (UTC)

Closed - There is no consensus to do anything. HaloTalk 13:31, July 19, 2011 (UTC)
