As the proponent of this star, and with eternal gratitude toward Benzband for all the hard work/heavy lifting, I say, for what it is worth, Wikipedia adopt this star and add it officially. Djathinkimacowboy 20:48, 17 November 2011 (UTC)

Ribbon[edit]

If someone feels like creating a WP:RIB for this barnstar that would be very kind. They might even get a barnstar ! ;-) benzband (talk) 12:59, 26 December 2011 (UTC)

  • Details: a blue ribbon with thin silver edges and the Quasar-type design in the centre, like a rosette. Cheers, benzband (talk) 13:25, 26 December 2011 (UTC)
Which style of Ribbon would you like to see? Shadowed, Textured, or Small? -Achowat (talk) 15:47, 28 December 2011 (UTC)
Shadowed preferably (and a small one too if possible :-) benzband (talk) 16:14, 28 December 2011 (UTC)
I'm wondering about your style choices in regards to the ribbon. We need to remember that the idea of the ribbons (at least in the RealSpace) is to have it look like the ribbon of the medal it has come from. For that reason, horizontal designs and charges in the center of ribbons seem poor form. (And to counteract the WAX argument that you could easily make, there are about 40 of the currently accepted ribbons that I dislike). Since the majority of Barnstars (including TQBS) don't have a 'ribbon' per se, it would be best to emulate the look, the 'feel' of the award. What I imagine is a generally black ribbon with thin brown lines down the edges (like the white in the Purple Heart) with a series of offset white shapes down the center (see: File:OrderAustraliaRibbon.png). The original idea was stars, based generally on the fact that I have no earthly idea what a 'Quasar' is. -Achowat (talk) 19:40, 28 December 2011 (UTC)
The original idea for a ribbon doesn't actually come from me, but i suppose that would also work fine ! Also i'm afraid i'm not very knowledgeable on heraldry... ;) benzband (talk) 01:02, 29 December 2011 (UTC)
This has nothing to do with heraldry, nor should it. But I do like the idea proposed by Achowat. I'm only wondering if brown trim along a black ribbon is easy to see. What about dark brown trim along a royal blue ribbon? Then the white designs as A. describes them. That, I would LOVE to see.Djathinkimacowboy(yell) 06:23, 29 December 2011 (UTC)
Sorry for using the term, I just needed to use an unambiguous term to show my opposition for the 'faux-sette' idea. I'll have my people (yeah, just me) mock up both a royal blue and a black so that we can see which is better. Do simple white stars work, or would there be a more appropriate simple shape to throw down the center? -Achowat (talk) 13:38, 29 December 2011 (UTC)
These two pictures [1] [2] resemble 'white stars' - benzband (talk) 20:25, 29 December 2011 (UTC)
So, is there concensus for a series of white stars? Achowat (talk) 20:34, 29 December 2011 (UTC)
Yes (see post below :) benzband (talk) 10:51, 30 December 2011 (UTC)

All that has been settled here is happily acceptable to me. Thank you, Achowat.Djathinkimacowboy(yell) 23:06, 29 December 2011 (UTC)

Perhaps something like this? Quasar Ribbon.jpg Achowat (talk) 01:04, 31 December 2011 (UTC)

It is beautiful! Just like I imagined only perfected. Would you give me the template to utilise it, Achowat? I'm not always sure how the template works.Djathinkimacowboy(yell) 01:56, 31 December 2011 (UTC)
