I've put together a pair of updated RS Wiki logos which are based on the prior logos, HD inspired, and ready for all skins (transparency tweaked). I could have just sneaked them over the existing logos but felt it would be more proper to present them here first.

Much smoother. No reason not to, they are clearly better quality. Cap and goggles.pngTEbuddy 02:25, 14 July 2008 (UTC)
I agree. They are much more higher quality than the old logos, and we have been needing transparency. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 02:34, 14 July 2008 (UTC)
Neat. I'm for it. --Sαcrε (edit my sig) | (edit my user page) 02:43, 14 July 2008 (UTC)
Me like. Chicken7 >talk 05:34, 14 July 2008 (UTC)
Sorry to be a bit of perfectionist. I think that the runes should be backed with coloured (according to the rune type), blended shadows for both. If available, the "Runescape Wiki" should have that too for the second one. I cannot edit by myself since the runes and words are of weak, backing, fading pixels.

Anyway, I am designing the shadow colour of the runes and text if it is for real. The design and preview (larger than the original size) are shown:

Welcome to better that based on my "research" ! XDRAGONAITE +Saradomin's Book of Wisdom.png 15:06, 14 July 2008 (UTC)

The first logo is too large; it has to be 135 by 150 pixels ([[w:c:help:Help:Logo|more info]]), though the wide logo for the Quartz skin is good. They look really good and should be uploaded very soon. I guess someone should also update the favicon as well?--Richard 16:44, 14 July 2008 (UTC)
They seem to blurry.....I kind of like the first set better. Cap and goggles.pngTEbuddy 18:20, 14 July 2008 (UTC)

The text is just duped from the old, I'll see if i can find what font it was or a similar font (might as well clean that too). Favicon seems like a good idea as well, i'll play with it see what can happen. I'm sort of favouring making a hybrid law/fire rune like this for that but i'm open to suggestions. ~kytti khat 03:13, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

I like the favicon idea. I don't really like the current fire rune. The law/fire hybrid looks good. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by C Teng (talk) on 08:27, 15 July 2008.

Does anyone else like the coloured shadowing of the runes in the logo? So far by my count i have one favouring the effect and another not. Should i set up a poll to gather consensus? ~kytti khat 00:26, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

nah, it grew on me. I like Cap and goggles.pngTEbuddy 00:46, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

now we have 2 in favour of, any one else? Bueller? ~kytti khat 01:14, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

I really don't like the shadow ones. It's a good idea, but it doesn't look very well all done out. I really really like kytti's logos. Christine 01:26, 18 July 2008 (UTC)
vs. ~kytti khat 01:31, 18 July 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, I think Kytti's logo. The shadows are okay, but I think it looks better without. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 01:51, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

Looks like another tie. How about i throw a couple of gnu ones in the mix:
File:another suggestion for a new Wiki logo.png or maybe File:yet another suggestion for a new Wiki logo.png ? ~kytti khat 02:14, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

Oh I loooooooooooooove that second one. Christine 02:25, 18 July 2008 (UTC)
Yes, the one named "Yet another..." is pretty cool, that gets my vote.--Degenret01 03:18, 18 July 2008 (UTC)
I love the second one and the one with no shadow (Bastard, are you messing Kytti Khat?) too! But if that one is to be chosen, some changes of shadow colour should be made, some of them are just too dark:
      • Law: #0066FF / #0088FF (depends on the appearance)
      • Air: #F0F0FF
      • Body: #A05E82
      • Water: #0044FF / nothing (depends on the colour of law)
      • Nature: #00C300
      • Death: #616161
And are there any opacity for those shadows too?
btw, should we try fire/cosmic hybrid? XDRAGONAITE +Saradomin's Book of Wisdom.png 03:22, 18 July 2008 (UTC)
I like the "Yet another" logo Kytti did and the first one that Kytti at the start. But Maybe the "Yet another" one is a little crowded. And how would we do it with Wiki wide.png? Lol, and what is with "RoonScape"?? Chicken7 >talk 07:30, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

I already cast my vote but wanted to mention that , to me anyhow, the shadow one makes me think of a little kid that can't colour in the lines. Sorry, I get weird at times.--Degenret01 08:46, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

Actuallly, in my opinion, those "yet another" logos look even worse. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 12:36, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

Xagonite, are you saying that death is too dark and that a brighter cheerier death would be more to the liking lol, couldn't resist. Seriously i'll play with the suggested changed ones, most of the colours are your original suggestion with about 4 tweaked to my liking. As for the program i'm using it's the opensource gpl freeware gimp. I'm still getting accustomed to it since i switched over from photoshop (which i used all the way back to v2.5 on the old 68k architecture mac systems, anyone remember those?

As for the "yet another..." image that is not a finished product, and zomg thank you Chicken for noticing the Roonscape, I was hoping we could all agree to change the name of the wiki at teh same time. I'll tweak up the "yet another" which i'm thinking should be called "flies in the logo" but i haven't gotten the bugs out of the naming convention just yet. ~kytti khat 14:41, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

okay this one: [[File:Flies in logo.png]] and a not quite ready for prime time player [[File:Flies in wide logo.png]]
comments etc.?... ~kytti khat 16:40, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

I like the shadow ones, and those first 2 you showed, but I think the "Flies in Logo" ones are alittle too much. Maybe if they are toned down abit it would look better. Personally, I like them all.--Rollback crown.svg Spencer (Talk | Edits | Contribs) 16:50, 18 July 2008 (UTC)
So that's one vote in favour of the RoonScape version, ja non? ~kytti khat 17:08, 18 July 2008 (UTC)
FavIcons based on suggestion here are two versions of potential favicons to replace the current darkish fire rune: and [[File:Example Favicon.png]]. Some one pick one and put it up, otherwise i'll go with a File:Staff_of_Nature.png|13px ~kytti khat 17:27, 18 July 2008 (UTC)
I like the law/hybrid one better. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 18:52, 18 July 2008 (UTC)
I agree with C Teng, the red-blue colour of the hybrid is better.
Spence, what do you mean by 'tone down', hue? darkness? opacity? You'd better be more specific to those pro graphics processors like Kytti. =]
Once again, I am messing Kytti: how if the tails of flies are in the inner ring?? (I would do it by myself if I know how to use that GIMP or could you teach me how to use XD)
Lets called that 'Roonscape' then! XDRAGONAITE +Saradomin's Book of Wisdom.png 03:35, 19 July 2008 (UTC)
OK! I like the first ever logo you submitted with no shadow or anything. And about the Favicons, ummm, I don't really like any of the favicons I've seen for this wiki. The law-fire one is just I can't notice that it is a rune. But if anything, I like that one. Chicken7 >talk 03:48, 19 July 2008 (UTC) and
File:Suggested new Wiki logo-wide.png

From what i understand the originals are what most people are falling back to liking, I can do another pass at the icons flying into the logo look and leave the trails entirely contained within the whitespace. but fwiw all versions were designed to look good under the rs wiki example.png gaming, File:rs wiki beach example.png|beach, File:rs wiki slate example.png|slate, and brick skins as well ~kytti khat 11:14, 19 July 2008 (UTC)

I redid the versions of the runes flying into the wiki logos (see above) as per 2 or so suggestions that they no longer extend over the edge, however i find this less appealing than the File:rs wiki example.png|versions that File:rs wiki beach example.png|spread their rs wiki slate example.png|wings (so to speak).
Again i will be mostly offline as i settle into my new domicile. ~kytti khat 23:09, 25 July 2008 (UTC)

Fave icon and now [[File:Example Favicon.png]]

So far the first two are rated "meh" at best one has become my favourite. There is only so much that can be done in a 16x16 grid. Luckily the latest i think seems to work rather nice as it simply blood and water on the same rune and even looks a lot like what you might expect. The newest didn't work out the way i was hoping ~kytti khat 11:14, 19 July 2008 (UTC) and again 21:44, 19 July 2008 (UTC)

I don't know, I still kind of prefer the first one. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 12:19, 19 July 2008 (UTC)
Ok, my final vote is the shadow one or the first one Kytti posted. Doesn't matter to me. --Rollback crown.svg Spencer (Talk | Edits | Contribs) 21:05, 20 July 2008 (UTC)
I think I like the second one most, but the third one is pretty cool too. Christine 19:58, 21 July 2008 (UTC)

What about a fire/water hybrid? Like, with the drop of water superimposed over the fire?Or a death/soul hybrid, with the wings behind the skull? Maybe we could come up with some other combos.--Hirushi 20:35, 21 July 2008 (UTC)

I like flies in logo, but it's kind of hard to see the air rune aura. Also, I think if the auras didn't extend out of the box it might look better. Just a thought.--Hirushi 20:40, 21 July 2008 (UTC)

I played with the death/soul combo and didn't find it worth uploading as for the fire/water see here [[File:fire and water logo icon example.png]]. Personally I still prefer the law/fire hybrid, regardless i made File:RW logo.png on a whim, it doesn't feel very inspired however.
BTW I'll be mostly offline as i settle into my new apartment, fyi... ~kytti khat 22:54, 25 July 2008 (UTC)

I would have to agree that the fire/water isn't all that interesting, but I do like the law/fire and the cosmic/fire ones.--Hirushi 15:38, 27 July 2008 (UTC)
