I decided to kill some time and I came up with this:
The above logo blends the Oasis logo theme with the Monobook one and follows the style Jagex is going after.


As requested by Fswe1


Let me know if...

  • You like either one of the logos above looks good the way it is
  • How either one of the logos can be changed to look better
  • You feel the current RS Wiki logo should stay

Please cast your vote by replying with one of the three responses above.


Oppose changing - So essentially we are going to have 2 logos if this passes. I don't think it's really necessary to change the logo What I've done Ciphrius Kane Talk 16:03, May 4, 2012 (UTC)

Ciphrius Kane, this would replace ONLY the MonoBook logo. -Bren
This does not change that I still believe the change to be unnecessary What I've done Ciphrius Kane Talk 16:14, May 4, 2012 (UTC)

Strong oppose - I much, much prefer our current monobook logo, which looks cleaner, better fits the theme, has existed for a long time, and simply put, doesn't need to be changed. This one just isn't aesthetically pleasing. Ronan Talk 16:12, May 4, 2012 (UTC)

Incidentally, community discussions are not "votes". RS:C. Ronan Talk 16:13, May 4, 2012 (UTC)
I know this is opinionated, however I would like to add that The logo I've created matches more of the Oasis and the general theme that RuneScape has brought about. -Bren

Neutral - I like the new font, but I prefer the border and shadow of the current logo. In both cases the runes look good, so I don't really know... I must say, it doesn't go very well with the MonoBook theme itself, so perhaps brighten it a bit? That is an advantage of the brighter current runes on current essence. If that makes sense.

I've made another image with what you've requested. Please view it above in the section "Changes" -Bren
I most certainly wouldn't mind that being the new logo! Smile User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 19:05, May 4, 2012 (UTC)

Suppport - Looks much more updated and sophisticated. (: sssSp7p.pngIjLCqFF.png 16:35, May 4, 2012 (UTC)

Thanks, Fergie. I'm glad you like it ;D :) - Bren 18:02, May 4, 2012 (UTC)

Oppose - I don't think it is a good idea to make the monobook logo's icons to be a minigame's runes, instead of the runes that are used in the "everyday life" on runescape. The runespan runes have no use outside runespan, so I don't see why we should make our logo have those minigame-only runes our official monobook logo. JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 17:07, May 4, 2012 (UTC)

It's the idea of making it look updated. Obviously Runespan was a recent update so I felt the need to make it somewhat related to the currect RuneScape. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by BrenRS (talk).
Yes it is a recent update, but how is runespan "the current RuneScape"? I think RuneSpan is "the current RuneScape" (that everyone plays it) for such a short time that it is already "just a minigame" by the time this forum is closed. JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 17:27, May 4, 2012 (UTC)
So what you're saying is I should use the regular runes instead of the ones in Runespan?  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by BrenRS (talk).
Yes, absolutely. But then, what exactly is the change? JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 17:30, May 4, 2012 (UTC)
New font, new gradient in inner area. -Bren
I would support it with the regular runes then. JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 17:36, May 4, 2012 (UTC)

Oppose - The original logo is a bit cleaner, sharper, and generally looks better in my opinion. My main issue with the requested logo is that its background is too bright. Pillar.png Exi-Gents TalkPillar.png 17:40, May 4, 2012 (UTC)

Thank you, I appreciate your positive feedback on my original logo I created. I thought it was too bright but at this point, you and Fswe1 have to talk it out? :P - Bren 17:51, May 4, 2012 (UTC)
uh, what? Ronan Talk 18:14, May 4, 2012 (UTC)
Grr. =3 User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 19:06, May 4, 2012 (UTC)

Support - (Yay for Monobook users!) I like the "changed" version. (You should remove/archive the original if you have changed it so people will only look at the changed one. *grin*) I don't mind the minigame-version runes, as they are kinda unique in a way.   az talk   20:56, May 4, 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for the feedback! I'm not sure where this will go, but I chose the Runespan runes for the reason of making it unique, like you said, and also the idea of the runes looking more detailed. It's not as blank as the current one. The font for the current logo isn't that eye-appealing in my opinion. - Bren 23:17, May 4, 2012 (UTC)

Oppose - I don't use monobook, but I think we need to do this right. Offer a "contest" of sorts to allow users to submit their logo ideas. From our pre-Wikia skin thread, Forum:Changing the logo/Submissions, I would like to propose my own image, as seen here and seen in use here. Hofmic Talk 03:00, May 5, 2012 (UTC)

I'm in favour of opening a submissions page. Ronan Talk 06:46, May 5, 2012 (UTC)
Support opening submissions page - I like that idea too. Hair 12:52, May 5, 2012 (UTC)

Question - What's the current monobook logo? --LiquidTalk 17:38, May 5, 2012 (UTC)

[1] sssSp7p.pngIjLCqFF.png 18:14, May 5, 2012 (UTC)
Oh! The old Monaco logo! *nostalgia* Anyway, I don't really care what happens to the Monobook logo. --LiquidTalk 18:18, May 5, 2012 (UTC)

Oppose - Two points. (1) I agree that if it's going to change, it should be a more open process with an invitation for people to submit entries. (2) I'm not convinced it needs to change. In fact, I'm predisposed to think it doesn't need to change. The existing one is good. --Saftzie (talk) 12:52, May 6, 2012 (UTC)

Oppose - If you're going to change it, at least make it something completely different other than make it glossier and have different runes. Hair 00:57, May 9, 2012 (UTC)

Closed - A Monobook logo submissions page has been created and opened for one week [[RuneScape:Theme/Monobook|here]]. sssSp7p.pngIjLCqFF.png 06:41, May 13, 2012 (UTC)
