Social Icons

Do you think we could scrap the glossy icons that look like they're from a Windows Vista era, and go for something with a more flat, clean design like other aesthetics we use? We could use the social icons on or I could get different ones that also have a flat design. --ToaMeiko (talk) 23:32, 17 October 2013 (EDT)

  • I thought of them first (to save myself an upload), but they just seemed a little too minimalistic to me if they were used on the main page, may just be me. (Plus that Facebook icon bugs me for some reason, probably part of my illogical aversion to circular icons :D)

. But I really don't care if you switch them, maybe these ones I uploaded do look out of place. Just wondering though, will the Twitter icon work on en, since the blues are very similar, and do you have an RSS icon in that style (the icons are also used on the news main page, but with the additional icon) NovaFlare (talk) 00:46, 18 October 2013 (EDT)

    • I could make icons that are transparent and white to deal with backgrounds. That's what I was thinking of anyways. --ToaMeiko (talk) 01:16, 18 October 2013 (EDT)
      • Sounds good, go for it if you think it'll be better :) NovaFlare (talk) 03:59, 18 October 2013 (EDT)

Social Icons for Other Wikis

What might be nice is if we put social icons inside the headers for the wikis, align them right and link them to the specific wiki social page. It might look a bit like:
Brickipedia F T +
F being Facebook, T being Twitter and + being Google+. Of course, if the wikis don't have, let's say, a Google+ account, we can just omit that. SirComputer (talk) 15:38, 19 October 2013 (EDT)

  • I don't think so, it's not something we're specifically advertising, so it doesn't need to be so prominent. The main page is fine. --ToaMeiko (talk) 16:43, 19 October 2013 (EDT)

Recent updates

A section for a "recent updates" box should be added somewhere on here. --ToaMeiko (talk) 21:06, 13 November 2013 (UTC)

  • Added, at the moment I think a wide box below the welcome's the best place to have it, but feel free to move it. The recent update info can be edited at Template:MP-RecentUpdates NovaFlare (talk) 22:24, 13 November 2013 (UTC)
    • I think it'd work better as a half-width box, but oh well. --ToaMeiko (talk) 22:36, 13 November 2013 (UTC)
      • No, I do too- but what do we do with the empty space next to it? Unless you want to make the welcome half-width as well, but that could look a bit weird NovaFlare (talk) 22:41, 13 November 2013 (UTC)
