Okay, let's have a vote on which Main Page logo to use in quartz format: Image:wiki.png or [[:File:Wiki wide.png]]. If you support, you are voting for Image:wiki.png, and if you don't, you're voting for [[:File:Wiki wide.png]]. (Am I doing this right, Chia?)

I use Monobook, so it doesn't affect me one way or the other, however, I'd definatly have to say that Image:wiki.png looks much neater, and more professional. Sorry, webmaster point of view there... Grim reaper hood.png Ben RyfosTalk 03:18, 29 January 2008 (UTC)
There is no voting here guys. Monobook uses wiki.png, Quartz skins use wiki_wide.png. End of story, you have no choice. Quartz skins MUST use that logo, it's written into the coding. ChristineTalk 03:22, 29 January 2008 (UTC)
Could we not change the wiki_wide.png logo then? I mean, it's not like there's no choice, theres gotta be some changes we can make. Even if we can't use the wiki.png logo, use something else. Grim reaper hood.png Ben RyfosTalk 03:30, 29 January 2008 (UTC)
He's got a point, everyone likes Image:wiki.png better, we could change the image. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 04:23, 29 January 2008 (UTC)
Agreed, I much prefer Image:wiki.png76.232.1.32 09:07, 29 January 2008 (UTC)
I have just created an account and switched to the monobook skin, this is what I have been looking for all along. Why is monobook not the default skin as seen to public users? I personally think that smoke looks disorganized and unprofessional.Tebuddy 09:20, 29 January 2008 (UTC)
Smoke? We're talking about quartz skins. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 21:03, 29 January 2008 (UTC)
Smoke is the name of a Quartz skin. -.- ChristineTalk 22:03, 29 January 2008 (UTC)
You think monobook is better than quartz, Tebuddy? I accually disagree (and apparently a lot of other users). But this is a discussion of which is better, Image:wiki.png or [[:File:Wiki wide.png]]. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 01:15, 30 January 2008 (UTC)
The thing is that the Monobook logo has a diferent size than the Quartz skin one, if it was resized, it would look really ugly or small, also, if we made a new one, it may be even worse than the actual one, let's evade problems and let it as it is. Jigo22 01:28, 30 January 2008 (UTC)
C Teng, learn to read a discussion before adding in a new comment. -.- There is no voting here guys. Monobook uses wiki.png, Quartz skins use wiki_wide.png. End of story, you have no choice. Quartz skins MUST use that logo, it's written into the coding. It doesn't matter which you think is better, the wide one has to be used for quartz because of its size. ChristineTalk 01:36, 30 January 2008 (UTC)
Even thoguh christine has a point, its written into the coding it can't be changed, Christine could lighten up a bit and be a little less,-how do I put this delicately-, rude. Bandos godsword.pngJmoDragon platebody.png, 01:40, 30 January 2008 (UTC)
First of all, yes, I agree, and second of all, I was referring to Nq2h's idea, change [[:Image:wiki_wide.png|wiki wide]]. That is, assuming the vote is won. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 01:46, 30 January 2008 (UTC)
Change the image in the smoke (quartz) skin, or change the default skin is what needs to be done. Tebuddy 05:48, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

Comment For some reason, there's no way to change the default skin to monobook, only to a different quartz theme. There doesn't seem to be an interface page for it either. On the topic of logos, however, someone will probably need to design a new one for Wiki_wide.png (assuming to decide to change it). Wiki.png can't simply be stretched into the size required for the quartz logo without making it look deformed. If I understand correctly, the last time we needed a new logo, several people just submitted their ideas and they were compared; it seems logical to do the same thing here. Skill 08:45, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

I don't think changing the default skin would be a good idea; I'm not sure it can even be done. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 12:59, 30 January 2008 (UTC)
Yes it can. -.- ChristineTalk 19:19, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

Skill is right, we can't use the same logo, perhaps we can submit ideas and choose one, but it would be better if we uploaded them to Imageshack or Photobucket, now we have to wait for the decision of the community Jigo22 17:13, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

[[:Image:New-wiki-wide.png]] is a logo I made based off the other one in paint.. only took about 10 minutes. Anyone else who wants to make changes or improvements is welcome to, as I have no decent graphics program on this computer. Grim reaper hood.png Ben RyfosTalk 18:17, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

I also made one here, I can add more Runes if you want: Jigo22 18:46, 30 January 2008 (UTC)
Ben's is great. I say we use that one. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 20:44, 30 January 2008 (UTC)
I like that it's adapted from the old logo. I've uploaded a new version under the same name as Ben's in which I removed lines and misplaced pixels created by cropping through airbrushing and just edited some incorrect shading. That can be reverted if need be, but I don't think he'd mind since he said he didn't spend much time on it. Everyone else should keep submitting logos though and we can put it to a vote. ChristineTalk 22:41, 30 January 2008 (UTC)
It looks great. Does this count as the community decision, or should we put a link at the top of the wiki and have a longer one? White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 01:26, 31 January 2008 (UTC)
I like bens as well.Tebuddy 06:49, 31 January 2008 (UTC)
Christine, do you want to go one step further? I thought it be nice to make the number of runes on each side of the title could easily do this by having one extra above the title, leaving 4 on either side. That's my only criticism, that it's not symmetrical. Endasil (Talk) @ 21:51, 31 January 2008 (UTC)
Well Endasil, I only spent a few minutes on it. I knew that it'd have to be repositioned eventually but thankfully Ben did it so I didn't have to XD ChristineTalk

I've made it a little more symmetrical now. Compare [[:Image:New-wiki-wide.png]] with Grim reaper hood.png Ben RyfosTalk 23:26, 31 January 2008 (UTC)
So, are we using it? White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 17:30, 2 February 2008 (UTC)
Unless I see some other comment as to whether we should keep/change it, I'll upload it to the wiki logo on Friday (8 February 2008) Grim reaper hood.png Ben RyfosTalk 18:38, 4 February 2008 (UTC)
Fixed the "p" cut off at the bottom. Skill 18:46, 4 February 2008 (UTC)
Thanks you Skill, I didn't even notice it was messed up. Grim reaper hood.png Ben RyfosTalk 18:51, 4 February 2008 (UTC)
I updated the logo earlier today, and haven't gotten a comment yet. I guess everyone likes it enough that they're not ranting. Grim reaper hood.png Ben RyfosTalk 08:01, 7 February 2008 (UTC)
It's awesome! Thanks, Ben. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 23:22, 8 February 2008 (UTC)

Suggestion/question Is it possible to use a series of the logos so that the individual ones match with standard offered skins? I'm guessing the skins are implemented through different css. If it is possible to auto-select from a series then the shadowing effect could be made to match the background colour of each skin. I would be more than happy to recreate the logo into a series with a little help on the coding. Anyone? --~kytti khat 12:40, 13 March 2008 (UTC)

If you can believe it, no, it's not that simple. The Monaco and Quartz themes have the style information for where to find the image embedded in a style tag in the HTML itself, which overrides anything you could put in the CSS. What I have done for my sandboxy skin is specify an extra CSS attribute for the logo which sets its visibility to hidden, so it doesn't show up at all. But I haven't thought of a way to override the name of the image being used. Endasil (Talk) @ 21:16, 19 March 2008 (UTC)
