Previous discusion in Help talk:Contents (moved)

I've kicked off a contest to get this great project a new logo. For this I've posted the call for suggestions in several confereces within Hattrick as well as external forums. I'll keep posting the samples which people create here. I'll also post these in the Hattrick Wiki conference. I've created a thread for this there.

Moved the gallery to Hattrick_wiki_logo_contest upon request --psymon 23:32, 30 November 2005 (UTC)

Writings will be changed by the artists if the logo gets selected as the new Hattrick Wiki Logo. I can understand they don't want the logos to be selected without their knowledge ;) By the way - something's not working with the < gallery > template... but as long as we see the pictures, I think it's okay ;)

Shall I make this logo project an extra page?

Yes, I think so. Can I suggest something like Hattick:Hattrick wiki logo contest and add a link from the wiki main page?

BTW, The logos should need some acceptable license. I think that BSD, GFDL or GPL would be fine but it's unclarified (see the text at the end of the edition page).

Good point. I'll extract this now - I think you're right. HT-Johan said in the global conference he likes the idea - so it's a good idea that we make this more visible ;)

I also think a new page for the logo contest is needed, plus a link from the main page. The main page should be a dinamic and updated article, that reflects events such as this one in my opinion. Also, I can only see one of the logos, and the layout on that table looks screwed to me (on linux & firefox). Great idea! --duno7 23:15, 30 November 2005 (UTC)

Also linux and firefox, I can see the three images but there is a text at the bottom overlaping. Could you try: [[Image:hattrickwikilogo_suggestion1_sirhawkeye.jpg|thumb|140px|Artist: SirHawkeye]] [[Image:hattrickwikilogo_suggestion1_brausebirne.gif|thumb|140px|Artist: Brausebirne]] [[Image:hattrickwikilogo_suggestion1_joager.gif|thumb|140px|Artist: Joager]] --carlesmu 23:30, 30 November 2005 (UTC)

Ok. The contest page is created and can be found here: Hattrick_wiki_logo_contest

And yes, the layout looks screwed, because the template is. I am using the gallery feature. I'll look into fixing that later. --psymon 23:32, 30 November 2005 (UTC)

Can we clean up this discussion or just move it entirely to the new page? So that the other discussions here don't get burried? --Septimusjm 23:50, 30 November 2005 (UTC)

Done --carlesmu 14:45, 2 December 2005 (UTC)

About:Hattrick wiki logon contest page


May be the better solution for the layout problem is use tables:

Artist: SirHawkeye
Artist: Brausebirne
Artist: Joager
Artist: MOD-RoLitoral
{| border="1" align="center"
||[[Image:hattrickwikilogo_suggestion1_sirhawkeye.jpg|thumb|center|120px|Artist: SirHawkeye]]
||[[Image:hattrickwikilogo_suggestion1_brausebirne.gif|thumb|center|120px|Artist: Brausebirne]]
||[[Image:hattrickwikilogo_suggestion1_joager.gif|thumb|center|120px|Artist: Joager]]
||[[Image:Hattrickwikilogo_suggestion1_MOD-RoLitoral.jpg|120px|thumb|center|Artist: MOD-RoLitoral]]

May be somebody can tweak better the layout.

'Great idea!!!!'

--carlesmu 23:43, 30 November 2005 (UTC)

Some tweaking requested? Some tweaking done! Centered the images... --Wyatt 23:56, 30 November 2005 (UTC)

Tried that - it looks funny with the table border around it when there are more pictures and valign=middle creates a zic-zac layout. --psymon 00:24, 1 December 2005 (UTC)

Comments about logos


I love the first logo, but it needs better text at the bottom. I don't like the hattwiki thing. The 2nd logo is a little too hard to read for my taste, and it doesn't make mention of the wiki. I like the third logo, but I'm not sure something so square is what we want. The fourth is just funny. I think I like it best though.

The last one might be a very good logo, but I don't know if its appropriate to use such a harsh language. --Superow

I don't think there's a place for those words here. I've deleted the reference to the RTFW image, and I'm surprised nobody has done that before. --Catalyst2950 11:22, 12 December 2005 (UTC)

I don't think there's a place for censure here. I've backup the image, and I'm surprise that anybody will delete it in the future --Attreides 14:17, 12 December 2005 (UTC)

I have reverted the page again, and I've added it to my watchlist. I'm going to revert back every change that includes your image. No hard feelings, but this is an OFFICIAL Hattrick site, and rules apply. It's not allowed to use offensive words on Hattrick, nor should it be allowed to do so here, unless you get permission for that from a GM, in which case I'll gladly admit I was wrong. Keep in mind that there are members of the staff monitoring the Wiki, and that some people have already been banned from the Wiki because of what they did. Personally, I don't mind your picture and I find it very funny, but we should all try to be objective and act according to some general rules of behaviour. --Catalyst2950 23:33, 12 December 2005 (UTC)
