Logo and look development

I'llbe posting some of my thoughts and sketches here. I would love some web scripting help, though in a pinch I could probably do it on my own. LoreDudeRoth (talk) 18:25, May 2, 2015 (UTC)

Excellent! Looking forward to seeing what ideas you have.

Several months back another user shared an idea for a logo, but on account of me being an absentee admin, I never shared it on the forums as I had proposed to do. Here's a link to their submission:

Not bad, but how about this?  Wiki-wordmark actual size--LoreDudeRoth (talk) 03:06, May 3, 2015 (UTC)

Very nice! I'd be happy to use that for the time being; it's certainly a huge improvement over the bland font we have now. What tools did you use in composing the image, if I may ask? Xardwen (talk) 05:23, May 3, 2015 (UTC)

EDIT: Now uploaded; I've also changed the background color to blend in with the logo (and provide a more appropriate atmosphere). If you (or anyone else) would prefer a different color, or that I revert back to a white background, please let me know! Xardwen (talk) 05:32, May 3, 2015 (UTC)

Love it! I used photoshop. A combination of public domain art, (the stone and octopus tentacles) and free fonts, and no small part of photoshop magic! Are there any changes you'd like to make, so you'd be happy with it long term? I'd like to tweak the BG art so we dont get any tiling. I'll look for the file location, but can you post it in the event I can't track it down?  LoreDudeRoth (talk) 17:30, May 3, 2015 (UTC)

I created a new version that adds a bit of color and eliminates tiling: Let me know your thoughts. Just to eliminate misunderstanding, all of my designs are saved and designed to be changed. I understand the give and take of graphic design. Never hesitate to ask me to tweak, or even overhaul a design.LoreDudeRoth (talk) 18:39, May 3, 2015 (UTC)

Where is Xardwen?

I really want to change the background and some other things that require admin or bureaucrat rights. I would love to help, I just need Xardwen to respond. I've contributed a lot in the last month, and really have the time and skills to advance the wiki. I just need Xardwen to respond. Is anybody out there?LoreDudeRoth (talk) 23:25, June 7, 2015 (UTC)

Category Development

Right now categories are all over the place. I admit a great deal of blame as I've been pushing through categorizing. If you have a good idea how to streamline the categories, I invite all comers. Otherwise, I'll put it on the to do list. LoreDudeRoth (talk) 03:37, June 14, 2015 (UTC)
