Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Novels/Rick Riordan task force
New task force logo?
Hello, all. I was working on a bit of graphic design recently, got sidetracked (naturally), and ended up creating a new logo for the task force. I have no plans to implement it right now, as our trident is working just fine, but I'd love to hear your opinions of it. This is Version 1 and this is Version 2. I am completely open to opinions and suggestions, both positive and negative, here or on my talk page.
In case you're wondering what the logo is supposed to represent, it contains letters/glyphs/runes from the languages used by each culture Rick Riordan has written about in his works of fiction (those would be America, Rome, Greece, Scandinavia, and Egypt). They are all symbols for the letter/sound R, because "RR" is both our task-force's and Rick Riordan's initials. The words below (in Version 1) are written in Centaur font, which is the font most of Rick Riordan's English works have been published in. So, it's a very symbolic logo, though it might not look very appealing, which is my main concern.
If anyone besides myself likes it, I hope to use Version 2 in a userbox for the task force. (I've also been working on some other potential userboxes, but that's a subject for another post.) Thanks for reading! -- 2ReinreB2 (talk) 00:59, 20 December 2015 (UTC)
Hello again, all. I have drafted some userboxes, which can be viewed at this page: Wikipedia:WikiProject Novels/Rick Riordan Task Force/Outreach. The purpose of these userboxes is threefold:
There're a lot of them, but that's just to explore the options. Most of them deal with member specialties, though there is a generic one which incorporates the logo I discuss in this forum post. (This may also be a good time to mention that I've also considered creating a topicon, such as this one.) Any and all comments are welcomed. Thanks! -- 2ReinreB2 (talk) 03:30, 20 December 2015 (UTC)
Nothing's really been done with this book in a substantial amount of time. Should we expand to cover all of Riordan's mythology novels? Should we create Kane and Magnus books? What sorts of improvements can we make to it, as it stands now? Some questions to think on. -- 2ReinreB2 (talk) 06:43, 14 January 2016 (UTC)
too too too too < big >
Visiting this page in a desktop window probably close to 8-1/2 x 11 inches in size (standard typewriter/printer paper in the U.S.) I see
On this wide screen, about 18 inches, a full window displays "R • R • T". With default settings at this library station "R • R • T • F" is about two feet long and the entire banner would be more than three feet long. If I count correctly, four <big> tags precede the trident (with no effect on its display); four more (total 8) precede "Welcome" and three more (total 11) precede "R •". With two, two, and two such tags the appearance is
Meanwhile at these settings and window size, the page body display is just wide enough that the two boxes "This is a task force" and "Rick Riordabn Task Force // Alerts" appear side by side, which seem about right to me.
