OK. As you may have noticed we've updated the header a bit to spice up the Wiki a bit. We have a logo overlayed on it, but it doesn't really flow with it. So we're asking for submissions to replace the current HPW Logo HPW Logo. It can be anything (that fits within the rules below) but hopefully something'll go nicely with the background. So rules:

  1. Must say "Harry Potter Wiki" on it in big enough text to be easily readable (bigger than the current one most likely)
  2. Must have a transparent background to allow the background image to be seen
    1. If you can only save with a white background, etc. then that's OK we can always make it transparent afterwards -- my point is that the background must be viewable
  3. Save in a png format
  4. Users can post as many submissions as they like (just don't go overboard)
  5. Use your common sense when creating the image -- obviously nothing "bad" can go on it (if you have to ask the answer is most likely "no")
  6. Submissions should be 135 x 155 pixels in size

So that's about it. Let's see what you all got. Personally I was envisioning Harry, Hermione and Ron flying on broomsticks out with "Harry Potter Wiki" next to it. But lets see what everyone comes up with. And feel free to discuss ideas, ask for feedback, etc. You may post submissions to this page. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 23:03, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

Wiki wide1 -- I'll submit this for right now, but I'm going to work on a better one.-Matoro183 (Talk - Jimmy Fincher talk) 23:16, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
Ugh, I can't seem to be able to install the title font on my new computer, so I guess this is it for now...-Matoro183 (Talk) 00:55, 21 May 2008 (UTC)
If you drop it into .../Windows/Fonts it should get installed. Don't worry so much about the text then, just use any old text -- the image is more important. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 05:04, 21 May 2008 (UTC)
Well then I have another one I can put up after my vacation that looks much better, it just won't have the harry p font.-Matoro183 (Talk) 15:45, 24 May 2008 (UTC)

I can't think of a good image to include, but I figure you guys (e.g. the admins) can decide that. My submission: Hplogo

Simple, but I like it. We'll probably pick a few and then have the community vote on it...or just have the community vote on it. Thanks though! -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 14:43, 29 May 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, I like it, too. But I also kind of like it bigger. The letters are supposed to look like plastic. --Cubs Fan2007 15:44, 29 May 2008 (UTC)
Crest logo

The design is supposed to tie in with the Hogwarts castle backdrop. Also, I've tested it, and I think it looks better when set against a dark background — I tried to make the text brighter so that it will stand out more. -Starstuff 14:38, 4 June 2008 (UTC)

I put a dark background behind it. ;) Looks good! I like it. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 15:03, 4 June 2008 (UTC)
Alright, given that wikia is redoing monaco, the logos must be changed to fit the new, or I should say old, Monobook dimensions. I think the one we have with those dimensions is pretty nice already, and I don't think we need a new logo.-Matoro183 (Talk) 20:06, 8 June 2008 (UTC)
We can still take submissions and vote on it if we want to change it. We should probably leave it until we're positive what's going on though. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 21:35, 8 June 2008 (UTC)

I think the current logo's alright for now but maybe a new one woulod brighten up the place? Mr nurr 05:08, 14 June 2008 (UTC)

Its not bad, it blends in a little too much for my taste, and the words are kinda small. But its all mute depending what Wikia does with its skin. So...kind of on hold for the moment. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 16:13, 14 June 2008 (UTC)
Here is my proposal for for when the new layout is initiatedWikilogoproposal i know its not perfect and i might change it. Me_Potter_Fan 09:44, 15 June 2008 (UTC)

-- This was going to be my submission before the dimensions changed. I'm going to redo it except with the new dimensions.Mr nurr 07:53, 23 June 2008 (UTC)
Just updating a couple things about the process (changes are bold). So now logos should be 135 x 155 pixels in size. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 14:27, 23 June 2008 (UTC)

...bumping again...--Matoro183 (Talk) 00:13, 14 July 2008 (UTC)
I believe that my propasal would fit in with our current layout the best out of all the proposals. Me_Potter_Fan (Talk) 13:07, 14 July 2008 (UTC)
The title needs to be in the hp font.--Matoro183 (Talk) 13:09, 14 July 2008 (UTC)
how do i writ in that font? Me_Potter_Fan (Talk) 13:24, 14 July 2008 (UTC)
You have to install it onto your computer. You can download it here. Move it to your desktop, right click it, and select install.--Matoro183 (Talk) 13:29, 14 July 2008 (UTC)

I personally like the way Me Potter Fan's is right now. It never says in the rules that you have to use that specific font. I think that using the Harry Potter font would wreck it, and right now it's my favorite. I just think you shouldn't have to use that font. -- Freakatone Talk 19:29, 14 July 2008 (UTC)

I made a new one with the HP font but i think the old one is better. Me_Potter_Fan (Talk) 06:46, 15 July 2008 (UTC) Hogwarts-castle
Try making the text bigger. It's kinda hard to read.--Matoro183 (Talk) 18:32, 15 July 2008 (UTC)
Bumping. Me_Potter_Fan (Talk) 04:38, 19 July 2008 (UTC)
I don't think that we're going to get any more entries. Should we go ahead and set up a voting page? -- Freakatone Talk 16:36, 21 July 2008 (UTC)
Sure, or you could make a second section here. Either way is OK. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 20:29, 21 July 2008 (UTC)
hope im not too late:Me Potter Fan submission 3. Me_Potter_Fan (Talk) 12:27, 22 July 2008 (UTC)
Nope. You're not. I'm gonna put up the voting later today. -- Freakatone Talk 12:32, 22 July 2008 (UTC)
Please dont count my second submission i hate it. Me_Potter_Fan (Talk) 12:45, 22 July 2008 (UTC)
