Proposal I: MountHailEdit

  1. Icon check SaintPain TinySaintPainHere to help."
  2. Icon check its a bit more distinct. Vote conditional on it fitting the page. Agent c (talk) 19:21, August 16, 2014 (UTC)
  3. Icon check This one is apart from the regular theme colours in a very good and necessary way, would be less bland and would provide a good change of pace from the common theme colours. Looks a lot more smoother and richer. User ayyyy  OfficialLolGuy  Talk  Blog  20:44, August 16, 2014 (UTC)

Proposal II: Peace'n HugsEdit

  1. Icon check Greets Peace'n Hugs (talk) (blog)
  2. Icon check RangerSequoia "Some say this user used to be a Moderator..." Wiki 05:04, August 17, 2014 (UTC)
  3. Icon check That brings a "Fallout effect" to the welcome box, having that "RobCo terminal" look. It's the best imo. Matt2077 (talk) 12:41, August 21, 2014 (UTC)

Proposal III: JspoelstraEdit

  1. Icon check Clearly superior to the other two options. --Skire (talk) 16:00, August 16, 2014 (UTC)
  2. Icon check 69.l25 (talk)
  3. Icon check Most fitting our theme colors. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 17:06, August 16, 2014 (UTC)
  4. Icon check Willfiend87 (talk) I like it better than the others.
  5. Icon check If it were not for the fact that the wiki already has a bright as hell background, I would have gone with proposal 1. But bright on bright hurts my eyes, and proposal 3 is much easier on them with a slightly darker colour scheme. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 19:39, August 16, 2014 (UTC)
  6. Icon check JASPER//"Do you like hurting other people?"UserRichard 20:19, August 16, 2014 (UTC)
  7. Icon check --WrightEveryTime 22:31, August 17, 2014 (UTC)
  8. Icon check MHsig Watch in awe! 01:40, August 19, 2014 (UTC)
  9. Icon check Much more preferable.--User ncr A Safe People is a Strong People! 02:36, August 19, 2014 (UTC)
  10. Icon check Seamless interface Navy athletics Don't give up the ship! Bill the goat 02:34, August 20, 2014 (UTC)
  11. Icon check Stands out compared to option 1, and isn't an eyesore like option 2. Neko-signature Archmage NekoNeko's Haunt 22:24, August 20, 2014 (UTC)
  12. Icon check - Chris 4 Star Dragon Ball Edit 22:59, August 21, 2014 (UTC)

CommentsEdit

Don't think this is an issue for users with 1080p monitors. But on 1366x768 and 1280x800 monitors, there are more scaling issues with the width being set to 20%. Screenshots -- MHsig Watch in awe! 20:08, August 16, 2014 (UTC)

My screen resolution is 1920x1080, and I am not having any issues. Not sure if that will help since I am at the other end of the extremes, but figured I would throw that out there. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 20:23, August 16, 2014 (UTC)
Looks fine for me on a 1366x768right now. JASPER//"Do you like hurting other people?"UserRichard 21:53, August 16, 2014 (UTC)
I've set my screen resolution to 1280*1024, set the percentage width to 25 and everything still fits on one line . Everyone should be happy now I hope. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 22:23, August 16, 2014 (UTC)
Eeyup, looks great now. Thanks. -- MHsig Watch in awe! 22:25, August 16, 2014 (UTC)

Thoughts on linking to the User Profile Guide instead of linking to the user's User Page? Linking to their user page is fairly redundant and I forgot that we had this guide. The guide can also be seen as redundant, since it's on the NUN page. But, I think linking to that over their user page would be more beneficial. -- MHsig Watch in awe! 22:40, August 16, 2014 (UTC)

The headers should be styled with text no-wrap so they don't line break at certain screen widths. Other than that I think everything's ok. The Gunny  UserGunny chevrons 01:40, August 20, 2014 (UTC)
Went ahead and added that to all of them, that seems to be the desired effect.. so hopefully everyone's fine with me adding that. -- MHsig Watch in awe! 21:29, August 20, 2014 (UTC)

RobCo terminals do not have the eyesore neon yellow on green look. --Skire (talk) 16:39, August 21, 2014 (UTC)

They were actually all the same color before the vote and were supposed to mimic the dialog boxes. With the in-text links being bolded, but I guess that might've been confusing.. dunno why highlighter yellow though. -- MHsig Watch in awe! 00:39, August 22, 2014 (UTC)
That would've been greatly preferable IMO. Over-emphasising the links is a bit unnecessary I think. --Skire (talk) 02:59, August 22, 2014 (UTC)
I changed it, but as said in the summary when i changed it, feel free to undo. i just thought the links didn't pop out clear enough. - Greets Peace'n Hugs (talk) (blog) 16:40, August 22, 2014 (UTC)

ResultEdit

Well, it appears I have won the day. I'll update the welcome message to my proposal. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 18:24, August 23, 2014 (UTC)
