Following the results of last week's poll, we will be using the following logo for the wiki:

Image

Now it's time to select what logo to use for the forums. This poll will be open for only one week.

I don't like the exclamation points on the first two and the last one seems a little bright. Not that what I say will have any effect.

I think I'd prefer the style of the last one with the colours of the first one myself, personally.

You know, I think that would look really good, Mewn. Maybe someone can throw together an example of it later. (I don't have the software or know-how to do it, so... <_<)

The last one looks most professional.
The word Psupedia is actualy easier to read the right way up than hanging on the side of the first 2.
and as for the choice between the colors i'll have to choose bright over the rusty ones.

It's been a while
I guess i should give a reply since I was responsible for the 3rd logo but unfortunately in the present time i cannot do any alterations because im not living at home for the next few weeks due to locuming for work. Unless i can get the image data i created for the logos from my home computer. I can pretty much replicate the stlyes or extract the object with consistency and do any kind of color replacement or object replacement (not limited to just inverts or reversals).

This is still possible tho however once i do return home..which is alittle bit complicated on my schedule right now. I guess the logo can be slightly modified on a later date I suppose, if theres enough carnage in the polls lol

If theres no other graphics editor to take on the job i can do it according to mewns suggestion.

Hey Nat, yer but no but, I voted for yours too. I think it's probably the most noticeable and I don't think it's too colourful at all. However, having said that, I am colourblind, lol >.<

Honestly, I prefer the logo that's currently in place =\ Easy on the eyes, doesnt overdo it, nice easy blue colors fit in with the banner background which is also a nice easy blue color.

Oh, yeah, that reminds me, I'm wondering why it wasn't offered as a legitimate alternative either. >_<

Oh, I thought we were going with the blue for the wiki, red for the forum theme. Or was that only for the little favicon thing?

Just started a poll for the color thing so we can have a decision.

Agreed with the general "colours of the first". Perhaps this poll needs a do-over?

Maybe so. I'd be happy to create a new one once we can get a version of the logo like that. I also need to do the favicons poll soon.

It's just a simple hue-shift, but if nobody else has done that in ~22 hours' time then I'll get it done.

Edit: ...or not. I knew I was forgetting to do something last night.

No big deal. For the time being, we can use the color scheme up there, then when we have an updated version, we can vote on the two.

Just for the record, I'd update the colors myself, but all I've got is MSPaint, and that won't do much good in this case. <_<;

Any time limit on how early the "when" is? (Works in progress.)

Not that I'm aware of, but I guess within the next week would be fine.

For the record I wouldn't want anyone to think that I'm "opposing" Natasha Milrose's works. I've just taken many of the comments made about it and attempted a more "refined" version:

Image Image

"I like that it's like the PSU main logo!"
Furthered that. Most notably the "PSU" is taken straight from the title screen, scaled down with the same aspect ratio. This has the notable secondary effect of making the name "slimmer" and allowing the graphic to fit in without overlap. Additionally the red oval is now more closely resembling that of the title screen. I've also tried to pick a font for the "PSUPEDIA.INFO" that has more in common with the chicken-scratch in said logo.

"It's very bright!"
Similar to the above, I've just plucked the colours straight out of the logo. Now the "PSU" is fully black, the reds are only as bright as they are in the logo itself and the cream/gold light glow does not steal attention from the graphic. Actually at this point I should note that the glow surrounding the text in both versions is a lot more prominent on a dark background than the white/blue/grey we have. I know spent a good few minutes making the glow match and then it doesn't show on white anyway!

"I'd like to see [this style] with the colours of [this style]"
Done.

I like the way the P covers for both PSU and "Pedia," but (and it may just be me) the text seems a little too pixelated. If there's a way to smooth out the edges, that'd be cool. On the oval, I prefer the rectangle with rounded edges. If the oval were longer (like in the game's logo), it'd look better, but with it being this short, it looks a little funny to me. <_<; Otherwise, the colors look great.

The "EDIA" was one of the reasons I said "works in progress". Another one is the "U" probably being a little thin (it was taken from the title screen, but have another look at that to see what I did).

Been a while since this was touched so here's a double-post to bump the thread.

Just had a stab at changing that oval to match PSU's aspect ratio, and run into a fairly obvious problem with that:

Image

Given that, I've made a couple quick attempts to get a decent balance of oval aspect ratio with readable/good-looking text.

ImageImage

The second of these is the first with hinting on the text, so it stands out more but blends in less.

It's also just occured to me that I could reduce the font to 6px and put a www. in the front...

Edit: Tested anyway, but I'm not too sure I like these. Maybe they'd grow on me. All in a row now:

I feel hesitant about the colours... it might well work out, but it just seems odd somehow. Wonder how other people feel.

We need a "mark as unread" option here. I saw this one morning, but didn't have a chance to reply. Then I ended up forgetting about it until a few days later. D:

One of the biggest things that stands out to me still is the contrast between the smooth finished look of the GUARDIANS Line logo versus some of the lettering which is slightly pixelated. Also, I still prefer the rectangular PSUPedia.info thing at the bottom as opposed to the oval one. Even though the game's logo uses an oval, it seems out of place here for some reason. I think it might be that it just feels cramped.

Heh, sorry. I had figured the oval thing was the first thing to get out of the way before finishing up the relatively easy task of redoing "EDIA" with anti-aliasing on and (if need be) lightly smoothing the PSU taken from the title screen.

Will spent maybe an hour on this later tonight.

Edit: Darnit all, Mira. What have you learned about trying to plan your time. ¬_¬
