Since we've updated our wiki logo, I think we should consider changing the wiki header background (also known as the Sims "Mosaic" - this). I temporarily removed it in wikia.css to see how it looks, and I think we can get by without having a header background image at all. So, I think we should remove, or at the very least, change the header background so it allows the new logo to be more easily visible. Thoughts? -- LostInRiverview talk ~ blog 06:12, January 30, 2014 (UTC)


What about using this? I'm not sure how will that look as a header background, but we could give it a try and see how it looks. Mate1234 (Chatterbox...) 13:51, January 30, 2014 (UTC)

I don't know if that eyes background would help too much due to colour clash, which is the issue with the current header. I know I said I wanted to pursue a TS4-based theme (starting with the new logo) and I want to do this incrementally rather than all-at-once. We could just go without for the time being or if somebody wants to make a TS4-based header that compliments the logo then by all means do so. No pressure to rush this, we've still got quite a while before TS4 releases. Lost Labyrinth Flag united kingdom england (c)(b) 14:42, January 30, 2014 (UTC)
Maybe something like this wiki's header will work, although not necessarily that, just something similar. Thoughts? Joey.eyeball (talk) 00:40, January 31, 2014 (UTC)
That could work. I'd personally prefer if somebody here did something original themselves just so we have something to show but if it comes to it then I'm not opposed to "borrowing" that one. Lost Labyrinth Flag united kingdom england (c)(b) 00:44, January 31, 2014 (UTC)
At the start of this video, it displays a sort of TS4-based Sims Mosaic. Joey.eyeball (talk) 00:50, January 31, 2014 (UTC)
I'd also love to see something TS4-based, and I think it would be better if we design something ourselves, rather than using another wiki's header. Personally, I'd like to see something a little simpler than the one we currently have, as it would make the logo stand out more and it could be the focal point of the whole top area of the webpage. ~ Waikikamukow (Anyone wanna chat?) 05:55, February 1, 2014 (UTC)
The header in Les Sims Wiki looks good. It's simple and plain, which I think is pretty neat. Although, I also think it's better if we could be original. I think the idea of simple and plain is a nice concept. Nikel Talk Vote! 06:33, February 5, 2014 (UTC)
Something TS4-based would be good, personally I'm in agreement with both Lab and Kelly (Waikikamukow) but if matters change, then perhaps we can ask the other wiki nicely if we may use their header. Beds (parlare - da leggere) 15:42, February 5, 2014 (UTC)


I wanted to say that I've been planning on working on a header image, but haven't had time due to real-life. I just wanted to make that known, in case someone was looking to archive this thread. - LostInRiverview talk ~ blog 21:51, February 24, 2014 (UTC)

I think the header in Les Sims Wiki is too plain for me. Something Sims 4 based would make sense, seeing that our current header is Sims 3 based. K6ka (talk | contribs) 16:39, March 3, 2014 (UTC)
They have the same idea as me. Pity, it would of been good if we had that. Joey.eyeball (talk) 07:10, March 10, 2014 (UTC)
For personal preference, I like Les Sims Wiki header; it's simple and neat. SimsPedia header is also good, but I think the diamonds are so big, the faces are either cropped or covered by the wiki navigation. I can't really think of any good idea for the header. :/ Nikel Talk Vote! 06:30, March 13, 2014 (UTC)

Bump. Anybody got any designs or ideas for designs that they wish to share? Lost Labyrinth Flag united kingdom england (c)(b) 21:54, May 5, 2014 (UTC)

Not an original idea, but I do love the logo of Simspedia. It would keep consistency if we were to go from our current TS3 header to something like that. Ѧüя◎ґ (talk) 23:05, May 31, 2014 (UTC)

One month laterEdit

This thread has been inactive for quite awhile and no conclusion has been reached. Should the current header background be removed, and if so, to what? Ѧüя◎ґ (talk) 05:01, June 26, 2014 (UTC)

No consensus has been reached: result is a return to the status quo. Feel free to reopen this topic in a new thread. Ѧüя◎ґ (talk) 16:19, July 4, 2014 (UTC)
