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.

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.

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)
