hi, i'm Iiii_I_I_I (or fetus, whichever one you prefer).

i would like to propose changing the wiki's theme for each holiday event along with the logo, as discussed here, with the same time frame and voting system.

i have created [[w:c:runescapehweentheme:Nex|this]] and [[w:c:runescapewintertheme:Nex|this]] as proof of concepts for the hallowe'en theme and christmas theme respectively.

also, if this passes, i'd like to merge logo and skin submissions into RS:THEME.


  • Support both, seriously, they both look awesome. I really can't think of any improvements, but I'm sure someone will... ajr 03:03, October 11, 2011 (UTC)

Support both - Awesome! --LiquidTalk 03:04, October 11, 2011 (UTC)

Comment - Is this to discuss creating a theme submission page like we do for the logos? If so, I support. sssSp7p.pngIjLCqFF.png 03:07, October 11, 2011 (UTC)

i think this forum would have to pass before we created something like RS:THEME, since that's how the logo one went. --Iiii I I I 03:10, October 11, 2011 (UTC)
Capitalise your I's, narb. =) User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 05:54, October 14, 2011 (UTC)
  • Support. They purty. svco4bY.png3Gf5N2F.png 03:18, October 11, 2011 (UTC)

Support - So long as we can have the {{Poll}} gauge reaction to the theme and take that into consideration for the next theme if it's negative. ʞooɔ 03:21, October 11, 2011 (UTC)

Comment - My worry is that many templates and such might not look good in different colours. I recall us going through a lot of changes when we adopted this theme. Hofmic Talk 03:39, October 11, 2011 (UTC)

Perhaps it's time to standardise and centralise templates with similar styles using CSS classes and [[MediaWiki:Wikia.css]], but that'll have to wait for another thread. 222 talk 05:29, October 11, 2011 (UTC)

Support both - That's amazing for a fetus! 222 talk 05:29, October 11, 2011 (UTC)

Support - Adds a bit of creativity to the site during the events, which isn't a bad thing. Hunter cape (t).png Sentra246Blue hallowe'en mask.png 08:25, October 11, 2011 (UTC)

Support - Merge RS:LOGO and future RS:THEME, but, while the H'ween skin looks great (too bad it has no effect on MonoBook =(), the Christmas one needs something jollier. Less... ridiculously dangerous troll country-like. You could use images of the Land of Snow (Myths of the White Lands). And for the Easter one... well, I bet there is a nice field somewhere. Or we can use woods. :) User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 13:38, October 11, 2011 (UTC)

+1. Christmas needs more red and green. But they look great. :) Chicken7 >talk 08:45, October 14, 2011 (UTC)
made it red and green. couldn't find a different background that would fit under 100kb, though. --Iiii I I I 21:26, October 16, 2011 (UTC)
Looks better. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 06:44, October 17, 2011 (UTC)

Support - Looks absolutely amazing. --クールネシトーク 19:50, October 11, 2011 (UTC)

Support Both - Per the above. --Touhou FTW 06:11, October 13, 2011 (UTC)

Support Both - I like it! to my talk page! King TALKWer den König nicht ehrt, ist nicht Lebenswert. 06:15, October 13, 2011 (UTC)

Support both - great job! Verticity 10:50, October 13, 2011 (UTC)

Comment - Do they work for Monobook? I took a peak at the pages and they looked the same to me. I logged out, looked at them and even though they are nice I prefer the old plain monobook better. So I'd oppose if it affects monobook but if it won't I am neutral with it (won't affect me then). Attack Ancient Fofo Slayer 04:26, October 17, 2011 (UTC)

It doesn't affect MonoBook whatsoever. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 06:44, October 17, 2011 (UTC)

Neutral See above. Attack Ancient Fofo Slayer 20:38, October 17, 2011 (UTC)

Support Both - As if it needed more support... but shmexy, great job. Definitely implement polls of site visitors though, don't want it to have the adverse affect of losing views.

No to Halloween, Support others - I can't see the text on RSHalloweenTheme Wiki. --中亚人/中亞人 (Chinasian/Jeffwang16) 跟我谈话 00:08, October 18, 2011 (UTC)

looks fine to me. what browser are you using? --Iiii I I I 00:43, October 18, 2011 (UTC)

closing early as the Hallowe'en event was released yesterday. There has been no opposition to changing themes for holiday events or the creation of RS:THEME. Since no one has proposed any alternate themes and there is no time to vote on a new one, my example will be used for this year's H'ween event. The poll on the main page will be changed to ask users' opinions on the new theme and future ones. --Iiii I I I 20:15, October 18, 2011 (UTC)

okay, never mind. maybe we'll do it for the Christmas event (when we're prepared). --Iiii I I I 02:54, October 19, 2011 (UTC)

Support although closed - I was gonna suggest this :D Also, I'd like to help if I can for any season that's not done yet :) Meeeeerds msg 21:15, 30 October 2018 (UTC)
