Heya :) If you don't know me already my name is [[user:CzechOut|CzechOut]], and I'm a member of Wikia's Special Operations task force, as well as a longtime Wikia user. We come in and help wikias with design and technical issues when that wikia sends up a Bat-Signal<sup>©</sup> at our Design Request page at [[w:c:community]]. Recently we received such a request from [[User:Energy X|Energy X]], and I was assigned to your case. Our goal, if you haven't been keeping up with [[Forum:Vote for new background]], is to come up with a new background and wordmark (logo) in time for the release of ORAS. You're welcome to see my initial efforts at [[w:c:czechitout]] and then to comment upon both background and logo at the forum discussion.

Wordmark Edit

Heya :) If you don't know me already my name is CzechOut, and I'm a member of Wikia's Special Operations task force, as well as a longtime Wikia user. We come in and help wikias with design and technical issues when that wikia sends up a Bat-Signal© at our Design Request page at w:c:community. Recently we received such a request from Energy X, and I was assigned to your case. Our goal, if you haven't been keeping up with Forum:Vote for new background, is to come up with a new background and wordmark (logo) in time for the release of ORAS. You're welcome to see my initial efforts at w:c:czechitout and then to comment upon both background and logo at the forum discussion.

However, beyond the specifics of the current design proposal — which you should obviously feel free to reject, by the way! — we have a more central problem. There seems to be some initial disagreement in the discussion so far as to whether we should use the official Pokémon logo or not. I really need your help to sort out this basic problem first, so your comments on this issue are really important. A wikia's logo is an important decision, and the community's most active members should be involved. It is your "brand identity" — the thing that appears on each and every page of the wikia. So it's crucial that we have a good discussion involving lots of people.

Please consider spending a few minutes, right now, to give your thoughts on this issue. Thanks! — CzechOut @Wikia 10:58, October 8, 2014 (UTC)

Site redesign Edit

A proposal to redesign the wiki is on the table. Please drop by w:c:czechitout to take a look at the new design, then return to the forum thread to give your views. Thanks :) — CzechOut @Wikia 03:56, October 24, 2014 (UTC)
