It should be changed to "The Call of Duty Wiki". I can take or leave "NO ONE EDITS ALONE". Imrlybord7 (talk) 06:21, June 17, 2015 (UTC)

On the topic of the wiki theme, the text that displays the options in the "Edit" dropdown is basically the same dark grey as the background that drops down with it. It's borderline illegible. Imrlybord7 (talk) 17:41, June 17, 2015 (UTC)

DiscussionEdit

Is there a particular reason, or do you just not like it? I personally think it's a nice change up from simply putting 'Call of Duty Wiki' up in the font of the current game. It'll be changed soon anyway when BOIII releases, so I don't see much of a point in changing it now. Conqueror of all Zombies (talk) 06:54, June 17, 2015 (UTC)

The only thing that should ever go there is the name of the wiki. We wouldn't have put "OpFor" or "USMC" or "Militia" up there back in the day. It's somewhat exclusionary to anyone who isn't up on the Advanced Warfare lore, if you get what I mean. Imrlybord7 (talk) 17:25, June 17, 2015 (UTC)
This is the icon that was voted on in the last wiki theme update. We have it because it fits with the AW/Atlas theme. If we set it back to the old logo it will no longer fit the theme. 09:11, June 17, 2015 (UTC)
At the same time, I can't help but feel that we should have the name of our website at the top of our website. Imrlybord7 (talk) 17:25, June 17, 2015 (UTC)
Well, issues like this normally progress easier if there's an image mock up for us to use. Right now there's nothing for us to swap it with aside from an older version that wouldn't match the current theme, or for someone to have to make one. I understand you likely haven't been here a while, but the overall intro of this forum is a bit lacklustre. You've stated something you want changed, but haven't greatly covered the whys, nor presented an alternate design for us to use. I don't mean this in a rude way or anything, but it just makes it hard to progress the forum. 17:30, June 17, 2015 (UTC)
That's a fair point on the mock up and an old image clashing with the current theme. I guess the solution that would make the most sense would be to get a jump on changing things for Black Ops 3. I think being a good pre-release resource should be one of the wiki's biggest priorities. As for the whys, the name of the website should be at the top of the website. The wiki should be an inviting resource for anyone who happens to Google "call of duty," not just a playground for its own community. The games are listed on the front page so maybe I'm just being a grumpy old person, but like I said, we never would have thrown "TF 141" up there back in the day.

Closed - No consensus and no new mock-ups presented. Matter will be addressed during next redesign. 15:36, August 3, 2015 (UTC)
