In a previous forum post, you guys voted 37-10 for a new wiki design. So, that's what this post is about! Leave your design suggestions below, including colors, background images, and overall design, and I'll pick the one that's the most upvoted (or the one I like the most) to become the new wiki background for the next year or two. Remember, the theme should represent the random yet united nature of this wiki and its content.
So, leave your designs below, check out the video above, join the wiki Discord server, and always remember to add categories to articles, and properly name images you upload. Thanks, and have an epic day.
Even though it may not represent the random, united nature of Fanon, my dream background is still the Halloween theme: a huge orange or white moon, brightly lit Jack-o'-lanterns, dark blue sky, foggy graveyard, a series of bats flying nearby, tall thin trees, maybe a scarecrow, deserted creepy buildings, stuff like that. Beautiful but also scary.
Remember guys, the background has to appeal to the majority of users here, not just one set group. So having the background be Lalaloopsy dolls will appeal to female users, but I don't think the male users would be very happy (I mean, maybe some will, but the majority wouldn't). So try to suggest ideas that can apply to all editor groups! 😎
Umm.. How about 3 characters? How about we make our own mascots? There would be 3 triangles with unique backgrounds. The 3 living things are our mascots and I guess each one of them should stand (or anything) on each of those triangles. One represents gaming, one represents animation, and one represents creation.
The gaming mascot should be a male with some YouTuber attributes. The animation mascot should be a female with some attributes that look likes those of an animator's. And then the creation mascot should be an animal (genderless) that is wearing unique attributes. Maybe between a dog, a cat, a rabbit, and an owl.
The gaming triangle's background would be filled with images of consoles. The animation triangle's background would be filled with images of animations. And the creation triangle's background would be filled with, uh... Work tools and plushies?
Remember guys, suggest ideas and the ones that get the most kudos will be considered. If no one adds kudos to ideas they like, I'll have to pick one myself, or the current background will stay. And don't kudos your own suggestion, pls
After much consideration, the final decision was: Superheroes! Specifically, in a comic book panel style. It bears similarity to the previous background, while being much neater and making more sense in general. Thanks to everyone who voted and participated in this discussion!
