Does anyone else think we could use a new logo? The current one is bland and lacking in design. Heck, the runes aren't even all accounted for! Woodcutting-icon.pngHyenastetalk 21:31, 23 August 2006 (UTC)

  • Definatly. Couldn't agree more. (If you don't recognize me, thats fine. Because I've never been on here before. :))--Lord Mactalon 21:37, 23 August 2006 (UTC)

First entry can be found here! Original file was uploaded by Oddlyoko at Image:Wikilogo.PNG. It doesn't really look that great, but I thought I'd kick things off and see what others think of my quick and simple logo. -- Couchpotato99 (talk) (contribs) 22:11, 23 August 2006 (UTC)

OMG Sir Robins got a idea!

Well i got another idea! how about we make the wiki puzzle\planet with a sword sticking through it and a wizards hat on it? :+)Dragon battleaxe.png.SirRobin (Talk)

I (Porsche595)agree. I think it would be awesome to do this. But, we still need someone to do the image. Until then, we're just going to be bumming. So, can anybody help us here?

The Wikipedia puzzle globe logo is copyrighted by Wikimedia, we would have to obtain explicit permission from them to use it first. It would look nice, but I doubt we would be allowed to use it. Rubber chicken.pngAScott00 22:55, 28 January 2007 (UTC)

I (Porsche595, again) just sent an email requesting permission for the use of the Wikipedia puzzle globe logo. Hopefully, we can. If not, then we'll definately be bumming. Scimitar_Animation is © 2007 Porsche595 for composing it.

PLEASE change it! I have only just signed up and already i think it looks horrible! (shaun1e)

Ideas anyone

I just made this in 5 minutes to give an example of a new logo. Show us some creativity! (image 2)--Whiplash 20:37, 25 January 2007 (UTC)

Hmm. We need something that is quintessential to RuneScape. Trouble is, I don't know anything that is the quintessential RuneScape thing. Except maybe runes. Perhaps we could have a picture of a player wearing a skillcape. JalYt-Xil-Vimescarrot 20:50, 25 January 2007 (UTC)
Skillcape and partyhat. It's not the right size, I don't know how to do that. (image 3)
Make him read a book so he looks like hes looking up info.
I don't know him, I stole him from [[:image:str.gif]]. And I don't need the image itself resized, I just need to expand the white (or transparent) background so it fits.

I'm gonna make one! So, don't, like, decide what the new logo will be until I upload mine. Dragon medium helm! Whaddaya know?Chiafriend12Better than rune!I have 12 friends. 00:30, 26 January 2007 (UTC)

OK! I made it! It's not supposed to be original. (image 1) Dragon medium helm! Whaddaya know?Chiafriend12Better than rune!I have 12 friends. 00:55, 26 January 2007 (UTC)

I think the current designs have too much (looks up art terms) negative space. The designs are not one large item but merely a non-cohesive collage of screenshots. I was just toying around, and came up with this very basic prototype of a yellow phat. The party hat represents a lot in RS, so it makes sense as a logo. This design of course can be extraordinarily changed. I just don't really like the designs that contain too much internal whitespace. (image 4) Woodcutting-icon.pngHyenastetalk 01:26, 26 January 2007 (UTC)

I agree with Hyenaste. (this is Guthix Follower. I was too lazy to sign in; sorry. Check my IP, we're the same person.) There is much too much negative space. We NEED a new logo. I rather like the PHat, it has some of JAGeX's flair for making images. However, I don't think it should be a logo. "Guthix Follower"...aka 01:37, 26 January 2007 (UTC)

The current one is plain. If you look at [[wikia:Image:Logocollection.png]], you see there are some really nice logos. Others are poo. But I would personally like to see ours updated. Woodcutting-icon.pngHyenastetalk 18:58, 27 January 2007 (UTC)
Couldn't agree more, Heyenaste. I think we should have a new logo. Any ideas anyone. Should we put this on MediaWiki:Sitenotice? I think we should. I will, please take it off if you feel this is not appropriate.Yellow partyhat.png Ilyas Talk Contribs21:40, 27 January 2007 (UTC)

I have an idea. I submitted #14. It represents the Wikia logo with the word RuneScape above it, and some images around it. It's just a draft, so feel free to play around with it as to how the actual logo will look. Dtm142 22:10, 28 January 2007 (UTC)

I submitted my idea; Chiafriend took a picture of me for this, but I didn't get used, so I made my own. (He let me barrow a book to read, then took the pic.) 7kyt1iT.gif --WINE OF GOOD HEALTH (Actually Stinko)

Maybe we should cut out the background or put "RS Wiki" in the text that players speak in. That would be cool!Yellow partyhat.png Ilyas Talk Contribs00:35, 28 January 2007 (UTC)
Over all, here is what I think:
  • 1
  • 9
  • 7
  • Maybe 6
  • And maybe 10

Yellow partyhat.png Ilyas Talk Contribs01:07, 28 January 2007 (UTC)

I vote for nummber 9. I think it looks efficiant and it shows exactly what the runescape wikia is. Riselordjosh

I would like a version of 9, but not the current one because it falsely implies a connection with Wikipedia. Woodcutting-icon.pngHyenastetalk 01:35, 28 January 2007 (UTC)

I use the wiki and runescape about 14 hours a day and I think the wiki represents communal knowledge on runescape so how about some of the bigger contributors get together in varrock libary get a shot and use that? Also have some in armour some in chef wear, some in robes etc?Staci Chainz 02:59, 28 January 2007 (UTC)

Im gonna go with 1,11, or chainz idea.Dragon battleaxe.png.SirRobin (Talk)

Hmm. Quite a lot happened overnight...
  1. A bit too cluttered and like what we already have.
  2. Again, too cluttered, I think it would be better if the image had some sort of central images rather than lots of small ones.
  3. Too empty, white space.
  4. Should have the words "RuneScape Wiki" inside the partyhat, if that could be made without making it look unpleasant.
  5. The idea is good, but the actual image itself needs to be improved. The player isn't wearing anything that most players would recognise. Three players doing this, wearing black dragonhide, mystic robes, and dragon armour, might be good, if you can find them. On the other hand, they may not fit, given the image size limit.
  6. see 5.
  7. see 4.
  8. Too pixelated...
  9. Don't know if we're allowed to use that Wikipedia image. Even if we are, I don't think the RuneScape skill images blend well with the Wikiglobe.
  10. see 5.
  11. We're not allowed to use it, and it wouldn't fit anyway.
  12. Skill images don't blend particularly well with the image of the guy (party pete?).

Those are my criticisms. If we were allowed, I would quite like the idea of the Wikiglobe with those characters (the Greek, Chinese, English and Russian ones on the globe) replaced with skill images; but that would require some degree of skill with image manipulation, to make the skill images appear to bend around the globe. If we couldn't have that, I'd go for number 4, assuming it'll be modified's a good idea in principal but looks kinda plain on its own. JalYt-Xil-Vimescarrot 09:37, 28 January 2007 (UTC)

Actually, I quite like Image 12. It represents economy (the party hat) and some of the many RuneScape skills. I mean, I like Image 1, but the whole rune idea isn't really a very good logo. It represents a lot in RuneScape, but not very much. I think Image 12 is the best. Guthix Follower 13:27, 28 January 2007 (UTC)

My Image, 8 I believe, is very, very, very horrible. It has the pixels showing and is too large. So I don't think its good. Heyenaste's prototype is not as good as his second one, with the words RuneScape Wiki, and The Party Pete one is really nice. I think we should come to a decision to get rid of the images that no one likes, starting with mine obviously, 8. Its getting too crammed in there, overnight, some 8 images were added! So I don't think we need 100 more in that "small" chart! By the way, mine is bad because I'm not good with image works, and since paint isn't the best choice. Paint would be a lot easier to use on Windows Vista. XP Professional and all of the other versions just have random colours in the box.Yellow partyhat.png Ilyas Talk Contribs15:23, 28 January 2007 (UTC)

If I had to pick one, I'd have to go with number 12. I just plain don't like any of the others, besides number one, which seems to be the same thing we have now...--Atlantima 16:27, 28 January 2007 (UTC)

I'm undecided. If I could make one, I would do something like Vimescarrot's idea, but I think that would require something like Adobe Photoshop. And that is WAY TOO EXPENSIVE. So, I can't really pick. ДҖ--Huanghe63talk 16:31, 28 January 2007 (UTC)

What exactly were you thinking of that involved Photoshop? I did mine using Paint. JalYt-Xil-Vimescarrot 16:46, 28 January 2007 (UTC)
Heyenaste said he shaded the party hat to have more than one colour by using something I forgot. But what Vimes made can be made using paint.Yellow partyhat.png Ilyas Talk Contribs17:05, 28 January 2007 (UTC)

I would go with 12 or 4... I like the idea of 12, and 4 is nice, but it needs more stuff... plus, my idea was more of a joke than anything. :) --Sαcrε (edit my sig) | (edit my user page) 17:25, 28 January 2007 (UTC)

I like 12 as much as my own, except looking at that image, he has no nose or mouth which is super-creepy. Woodcutting-icon.pngHyenastetalk 21:21, 28 January 2007 (UTC)

Vote for [[User:Porsche595|Porsche595]'s creation only if you like it. Also, I think you should vote for it because it has each of the available scimitars, and therofore symbolizes leveling up and website promotion.Porsche595 (talkcontribs) forgot to sign this comment.

I don't think the scimitars really matter, it's monochrome so you can't even tell the difference between them, except for the dragon scim due to it's shape. Also, this isn't Wikipedia, or a part of it, so why is the WP globe+text there? It's not really descriptive of RS, it's a copyright violation, and it doesn't look that great. The Wikia logo looks alright, but it's got the same usage problems as the Wikipedia logo, it's copyrighted. Aside from my own (vote for 12, w00t) 13 would look good with brighter text, and maybe some filler in the white spaces around it. Rubber chicken.pngAScott00 23:13, 28 January 2007 (UTC)
I'm sure that Jimbo or Angela would be able to tell us whether or not we can use the Wikipedia and Wikia logos, or it would say on their respective sites. I'm guessing that we can use the latter because this is a Wikia site. I'm against using the Wikipedia one for the same reason (this isn't Wikipedia). Dtm142 02:52, 29 January 2007 (UTC)
We cannot use the Wikipedia logo, but we can use the Wikia one (we are part of it). However, we should use a wholly unique logo rather than slightly modifying an already existant one. Woodcutting-icon.pngHyenastetalk 03:00, 29 January 2007 (UTC)
Ah, I wasn't aware about the Wikia logo. I just briefly looked through it's description page, and seeing the Non-GDFL notice, I assumed we wouldn't be allowed to use it, even though we're a part of Wikia. I'm with Hyanaste though, a unique one would look better anyway. Rubber chicken.pngAScott00 03:57, 29 January 2007 (UTC)

I can't exactly decide between 13 & 15, however if 14 could get the text "Runescape" like 15 it would be on my list as well. Riselordjosh2

  • If anything, most of the proposals seem like a WIP and not a decent improvement over the existing logo. Suggestions: use a font that is closer to the RS one, increase consistency between URL and name in the logo. I'd love to see a "wikimedia" or a "wikipedia" logo on a skill cape. In short, i believe none of the candidates are there yet. --Miw 08:59, 29 January 2007 (UTC)
  • I abstain too, I don't think any of them are good enough. --Eucarya Talk 09:13, 29 January 2007 (UTC)

I'm with the previous two guys, in that I don't really think any of the above images represents the site well enough. I like Miw's idea of a wiki skill cape, and I like the idea of a party hat somwehere there, but all the images that have p hats are filled with too much blank space, or... the don't have noses and mouths *gasp*! --Jeremy cleveland 15:36, 29 January 2007 (UTC) I like 12 KInd of gives whattthis wiki is doing I vote yes on 15!

  • A Wiki-SkillCape intrigues me. What is that thing in the upper right corner of 15? Some sort of rope? #14 and 15 both seem too dark, like the things laid on over the bright Wikia logo are all kind of dark.--Atlantima 23:05, 29 January 2007 (UTC)

I say we wait a while longer, there's not many good choices to choose from right now. From what I can see, there's only been a few days to submit suggestions, and some of the current ones can be made better before they're finalized. There needs to be a bit more structure to the voting, such as which entries are serious, how long the voting will last, if entries are still accepted, etc. Those who submitted entries should take the criticism received and use it to make the logos look better, then submit a final copy for us to vote on. Rubber chicken.pngAScott00 02:58, 30 January 2007 (UTC)
You're right. We should wait one week, 7 days from 03:00, 30 January 2007 (UTC), to vote. I'll put that on the top of the page, maybe not mediawiki.Yellow partyhat.png Ilyas Talk Contribs03:00, 30 January 2007 (UTC)
We should have each logo that got at least one vote in a list next to its criticisms and improvements. The creators can then take these ideas change the logo and re-upload it. This could be repeated until the time of the vote. EDIT: Also maybe we should archive this page and start fresh for suggestions? Santa hat.png The Voices (Talk) 03:10, 30 January 2007 (UTC)
I have a question!!!: Why is everyone voting on #15?! It's so unorginial! (Not that mine isn't. Mine is even more unoriginal in my opinion.) I think we should either have something that can represent all (or most) of Runescape or not change the logo and keep it the way it was before this forum excisted.

To be perfectly honest, I really don't these logos are good either... Although I do commend everyone for the effort, I just think that they could be more creative. If anyone out there can do some sort of graphics design thingy, we could have just as good a logo as the Polish version of this Wiki...

In my opinion, 12 is the most original there, but it needs more stuffs. Why is everyone voting for 15? Like Chiafriend said, it doesn't have much originality... (no offence intended toward Dtm) --Sαcrε (edit my sig) | (edit my user page) 23:54, 31 January 2007 (UTC)
I think 12 maybe with the combat skills and a different character like wise old man maybe? (15 is my adaption of dtm142's btw so direct all comments and suggestions on it to me (especially complaints)) Santa hat.png The Voices (Talk) 06:14, 1 February 2007 (UTC)
I don't know if we can use 12. I believe the image is taken directly from the Knowledge Base, in which case it's copyright of Jagex. I may be wrong about where it comes from but if I'm right, we can't use it. JalYt-Xil-Vimescarrot 08:04, 1 February 2007 (UTC)
OMG!!! I LOVE #19!!!! It rocks!! I think ir shoulb be our new logo. It resembles the original one a lot!!! Dragon medium helm! Whaddaya know?Chiafriend12Better than rune!I have 12 friends. 04:57, 4 February 2007 (UTC) W00t!
I think 19's good too... should we reset the poll? --Sαcrε (edit my sig) | (edit my user page) 05:07, 4 February 2007 (UTC)
I say yes. Dragon medium helm! Whaddaya know?Chiafriend12Better than rune!I have 12 friends. 05:26, 4 February 2007 (UTC)
Since this isn't really the final vote, it doesn't matter if we lose the current votes anyway. I'll reset it, removing the submission withdrawn slots + adding the new ones. Rubber chicken.pngAScott00 05:30, 4 February 2007 (UTC)

No. Not 19. This was what we were trying to move away from. It's the dreaded rune picture that doesn't represent all of the runes. If we're going to have lots of runes in the picture, at least show all of them. Please. Anything but 19. 18:48, 4 February 2007 (UTC) ...aka Guthix Follower.

I agree. It looks really nice, and I would vote for it, but I think we should really get rid of the runes. If we do choose it though, at least change the font on the bottom, it's a bit choppy.  AScott00  Rubber chicken.png 19:11, 4 February 2007 (UTC)
Personally, I was never against the idea of runes; i just thought the image was rubbish. That one's better than the one we have, at least. JalYt-Xil-Vimescarrot 19:16, 4 February 2007 (UTC)
We should wait until the poll has at least 40 votes. We need everyone's thoughts, not just 20 people.Yellow partyhat.png Ilyas Talk Contribs19:23, 4 February 2007 (UTC)

If we get rid of the runes in 19, what would we put there? There's not really much you can put other than runes. Any ideas? I can make a new one. [[Uldivad9]] 8:22, 6 February 2007 (UTC)

I have removed the anonymous poll. Any adjustments we choose to make to it result in its deletion, and we cannot start it over multiple times. Also, the anonymity made it possible for some users to multiple vote. Because this poll is not serious enough to really require private votes, please instead use the list below. This provides a weighted view of votes so active users can be surveyed alongside the general users. Woodcutting-icon.pngHyenastetalk 01:45, 13 February 2007 (UTC)

Just too unorganized!

Vote by adding three tildes (~~~) to your choice before the (<br />) so it doesn't go to a new line. And the three tildes instead of four so the date and time doesn't show up.

Note: I agree on 21 if the copyright issues with wikipedia are resolved. Otherwise, 12 is my choice.EMG Blue 12:30, 8 February 2007 (UTC)

I'm sorry, but we haven't obtained permission for use of 21, and if someone has, they haven't brought it up. Therefore, the copyright issues aren't resolved. I'm commenting it out for now.  AScott00  Rubber chicken.png 15:11, 8 February 2007 (UTC)
That's too bad :(.. I really liked it. I'll vote for another one then. EMG Blue 16:07, 8 February 2007 (UTC)

21 is fantastic if not the other one with all the runes stacked up in a pile!  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Hyrule Link (talk).

This is my opinion only...19 stinks for two reasons: the Astral Rune is messed up (no fill for the star shape) and, like Guthix Follower said, we were trying to GET RID of that "not-all-the-runes" idea. Now, believe it or not, I'm NOT gonna vote for my own now. Instead, I'm.........undecided. 7kyt1iT.gif --WINE OF GOOD HEALTH (Actually Stinko)
I was never against the idea of runes. I just thought our current image smelled a bit. 19 is a considerable improvement on it. JalYt-Xil-Vimescarrot 17:56, 8 February 2007 (UTC)
I like 21  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Malestro (talk).
It is good the way it is! Why do we need to change?! You don't have to change it, it is good the way it is now! Well, I mean the old one. We can keep it like this one, I dunno what number it is, I'll check, but it doesn't need to change.Yellow partyhat.png Ilyas Talk Contribs22:53, 9 February 2007 (UTC)
That would be number 1.Yellow partyhat.png Ilyas Talk Contribs22:54, 9 February 2007 (UTC)
I think number 21 is the best. Its just so cool! Funlu 15:34, 11 February 2007 (what the hack does UTC stand for?)

Whoa! Click on the picture of 19 to get a full image! the condensed image is much worse. Do this before voting!
I've turned it from a thumbnail into a plain image. IT now looks as it would look ... Assuming it's currently of the right size. If it will have to be downsized to be made into our logo anwyay, then we should be looking at the downsized one. JalYt-Xil-Vimescarrot 08:07, 13 February 2007 (UTC)

I really like Agentscott00's. I think that should be the new logo.

Number 21 is good idea and it haves most votes! Shouldn't we just end this "New Logo" thing and turn the logo to it? It's clear winner. Katshuma 21:21, 16 February 2007 (UTC)

If you'd care to read the whole discussion, you'd know we still haven't resolved the copyright issues regarding that image. JalYt-Xil-Vimescarrot 08:43, 17 February 2007 (UTC)
Has anyone bothered to ask Angela or Sannse or whoever if we can use the image?Yellow partyhat.png Ilyas Talk Contribs19:03, 17 February 2007 (UTC)
Porsche595 said they were going to. I don't think it's them we'd need to ask, anyway - though you could ask them to tell you who you would need to ask. JalYt-Xil-Vimescarrot 19:27, 17 February 2007 (UTC)
Who is them? Porsche595 is one person. Whatever. You could ask. Or I could. I don't know if we ask on wikipedia or on the Main Wiki. We should get someone who has been here for at least 2 months, most of well known, active editors here have been. I think we should start a section. I will. Look bellow.Yellow partyhat.png Ilyas Talk Contribs21:36, 17 February 2007 (UTC)
"them" being sannse or Angela. I referred to Porsche in the plural since don't know their gender. And we don't need a particular senior member of the wiki to do it. JalYt-Xil-Vimescarrot 10:07, 18 February 2007 (UTC)
Senior? What do you mean? I just meant someone who has been here for some time, not a Crat or Admin, just a person who is a regular editor. Like Stinkowing or Chiafriend, me, Sacre Fi, Dreadnought. Anyone! Porsche hasn't even edited sine last month.Yellow partyhat.png Ilyas Talk Contribs15:31, 18 February 2007 (UTC)
Agentscot asked. I didn't mean senior, All editors are equal. I just meant someone we know will send back a link or tell us what they said.Yellow partyhat.png Ilyas Talk Contribs15:34, 18 February 2007 (UTC)
Oh. Fair enough. JalYt-Xil-Vimescarrot 16:42, 18 February 2007 (UTC)
I just realized two problems with number 21.
  • 1 -- If a new skill is added to RuneScape, how will we add it to image 21?
  • 2 -- It should have the words RuneScape Wiki somewhere on it.

Can anyone come up with a solution or discuss the problem?Yellow partyhat.png Ilyas Talk Contribs18:46, 18 February 2007 (UTC)

Yeah..Don't use it. Hehe :) I don't think it has all the skill images anyway. And it doesn't need it. But you're right, it does need our name on it somewhere. JalYt-Xil-Vimescarrot 19:34, 18 February 2007 (UTC)

22 is fantastic! --Sαcrε (edit my sig) | (edit my user page) 07:01, 21 February 2007 (UTC)

Who will discuss the copyright of image 21 with wikipedia?

If you feel that you would like to ask wikipedia about the copyright matter on image 21, please list your name bellow. Also, if you have any questions, discuss them in the appropriate section bellow. Thank you.Yellow partyhat.png Ilyas Talk Contribs21:36, 17 February 2007 (UTC)

Seems a bit over the top. You don't need a whole new section just to say "I'll ask".
Yes, but we don't need everyone to ask, and since 3 weeks have passed since Porsche595 said he would with no one requesting the image from wikipedia, we need to know "who will ask", though it sounds a bit funny.Yellow partyhat.png Ilyas Talk Contribs15:28, 18 February 2007 (UTC)

Who will discuss the matter with wikipedia?

I will, later tonight. I'll have to contact the Wikimedia Foundation directly from what I can tell, as they have the copyrights.  AScott00  Rubber chicken.png 01:23, 18 February 2007 (UTC)

Lol after all this time, someone just thought about getting a new logo...:o

Please post your comments in the right section. If you have something related to this discussion, please post it here. Otherwise, post it in another section of this discussion. Thank you.Yellow partyhat.png Ilyas Talk Contribs17:04, 24 February 2007 (UTC)

Results, as of February 25, 2007

I have realized that this discussion is getting rather long and that we need to come to a decision about weather or not we will change our logo and if so, which one will it be changed to. I have decided that I will post the results bellow and that voting will continue for one more week (as of February 25, 2007). Afterwards, the voting will be discontinued and the community will have come to a decision. If the copyright issue with Wikipedia is not resolved over the next week or no proof is given that it was (such as an external link to the page where it was discussed), then it's votes will not be counted and all users must either vote for another or keep their votes and not have them counted. After all, we do not take copyrighted work without permission, and since it is copyrighted by Wikipedia, we shall not use it if it's use is not approved of. Voting will end on March 4th and we shall come to a decision. Seriously, this is getting really long and seems as if it will never end!Yellow partyhat.png Ilyas Talk Contribs18:49, 25 February 2007 (UTC)

Since this discussion seems to be dead, I'll bump that date forward to...this Friday. First of March. Only one picture has more than two votes, after all (not counting the wikipedia copyrighted one, which we can't use). JalYt-Xil-Vimescarrot 16:49, 27 February 2007 (UTC)
More than one picture has votes. But we still have to hold the discussion to see if anything chages. So the first of march.Yellow partyhat.png Ilyas Talk Contribs17:09, 27 February 2007 (UTC)

  • I think it is highly unlikely the Wikimedia Foundation would give permission for use of the Wikipedia logo in this way since this is not a Wikimedia project. The other language RuneScape wikis have some good logos. See [[Wikia:RuneScape]]. Angela talk 21:20, 28 February 2007 (UTC)
