This thread is for discussing the site's skin and overall color scheme. I'll work with your specifications and otherwise stay out of the discussion :) -- Porter21 (talk) 22:55, 16 March 2012 (UTC)

Myself, I think the current skin is pretty damn good. :) Ausir 23:07, 16 March 2012 (UTC)
Well thanks Ausir, it's not complete without the favicon though ;). As the 'creator' to an extent, I'm not to sure about the logo, but am at a lose as to what it could be changed to... Φύλαξ [~μίλησε μου~] 23:37, 16 March 2012 (UTC)
I rather like the skin and color scheme. Would love to see the favicon in place, naturally. Is it just me or is the 2 in the logo a bit shifted to the right? Is it centered? I feel like my OCD is kicking in :P
Can't find anything bad to say, I don't know the alternative to the logo either. Some way of adding "wiki" into it would be nice, but I can't think of anything. KristofferAG 09:20, 17 March 2012 (UTC)

The skin is brilliant. One thing, though: since the most commonly used tile in Wasteland is the red-brick one, I'd consider switching to something similiar: a blown-out brick wall or something similiar. The present background is good, but metal sheets ain't that common in the game. Golden otherwise. Tagaziel 12:33, 17 March 2012 (UTC)

You can probably find something suitable on this site. Regarding the logo, I think something with "Wasteland Wiki" in it would be better in terms of recognition value - just my 2 cents though. -- Porter21 (talk) 15:26, 17 March 2012 (UTC)
I'll get on it as soon as I get beck from work :) Φύλαξ [~μίλησε μου~] 16:29, 17 March 2012 (UTC)
Liking the new brick background, looks much better :) Φύλαξ [~μίλησε μου~] 11:59, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
I can't do anything that I am happy with with a new logo, so is there any possibility someone else could make one? It's driving me insane, and I've tried like 50 ideas... Φύλαξ [~μίλησε μου~] 19:42, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
How about just putting the word "Wasteland" above and "Wiki" below the "2" in the current logo? Ausir 23:14, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
Could do, but in what font? Φύλαξ [~μίλησε μου~] 14:42, 19 March 2012 (UTC)
Was thinking the same as Ausir. Make the "2" a little smaller, put "Wasteland" and "Wiki" above/below it in a font similar to the "Wasteland" lettering on the game covers (see e.g. File:Wasteland logo.png). -- Porter21 (talk) 17:25, 19 March 2012 (UTC)

What do you guys think about something like this:

I personally love it. If it's okay with you, I'm going to remove the grey middle and make it transparent, then run it. Φύλαξ [~μίλησε μου~] 15:26, 26 March 2012 (UTC)
Done! Looks absolutely wonderful in my opinion, I credited you in the upload Porter. I think it looks better like that so that you can see the banner through it though. Φύλαξ [~μίλησε μου~] 15:45, 26 March 2012 (UTC)
Might be a good idea to make a new favicon based on this as well? Ausir 21:08, 26 March 2012 (UTC)
I'll look into it tomorrow. -- Porter21 (talk) 22:04, 26 March 2012 (UTC)
Forgot to post yesterday - favicon done & uploaded. -- Porter21 (talk) 11:38, 28 March 2012 (UTC)
