Images in custom sigs (May 24, 2020- June 28, 2020)

As you may (or may not) know, there are some wikis that allow images in custom sigs, and some that do not. The current reason given by the page about custom signatures is "We'll accept symbols and wingdings, but full images are simply distracting to talk page posts." Images can be slightly distracting, but they should be fine as long as no animated images are used. It has been mentioned on the discord server for the wiki that it would make the file usage list large, but Special:Whatlinkshere can be used to only search for certain namespaces. Finally, there is the slight issue of the fact that images space out lines, but if they are small enough, that shouldn't be an issue. The screenshot is from smashwiki, which has a policy of only letting images be 20px high, which should work as a standard for us. Also, there would be a limit of one image per sig.

To recap, the proposed policy change is to allow images in custom sigs, but only one per sig, they must be 20px high, and they cannot animated. ---PinkYoshiFan 14:42, 24 May 2020 (UTC)
  1. Weak support. Everything seems reasonable, altrogh I'm still not convinced that hiding certain namespaces would justify using mainspace images. Superbound · (message me!) 16:46, 25 May 2020 (UTC)
  1. I'll go with oppose for now, for the same reason you cite from Help:Custom Signatures. There have been a few users with those already and some created text line misalignments, which, I suppose, could universally be resolved with font-nearing height limits, but it could still become distracting from the important discussed content. Less is more after all, just look at Superbound's signature. —Viperision (talk) 23:29, 16 June 2020 (UTC)
  2. Took some thought but I'm going to side with Viper here, it's probably best if we keep things the way they are. There are plenty of ways to make your signature unique but there's a fine line between unique and distracting, and images may well fall into the latter category. -YFJ (talk · edits) 17:13, 27 June 2020 (UTC)

What are the diffrences between symbols, wingdings and images? Superbound · (message me!) 07:13, 25 May 2020 (UTC)

It appears from Googling that symbols and wingdings are actually a typable font, while images are not. Also, images have much more potential to become complex. ---PinkYoshiFan 12:28, 25 May 2020 (UTC)
Alright. Superbound · (message me!) 16:46, 25 May 2020 (UTC)

Can these get archived? ---PinkYoshiFan 17:32, 30 June 2020 (UTC)

Split 3D Warp Star from Warp Star (May 15, 2020 - May 15, 2020)

3D Warp Stars that debuted in Kirby: Triple Deluxe have been merged with the Warp Star page. However, 3D Warp Stars look and function quite differently. Regular Warp Stars transport Kirby to a different area (with a short cutscene), and the more common 3D Warp Stars quickly move Kirby between planes. I think they are different enough to have their own page. --Obsessive Mario Fan 19:35, 15 May 2020 (UTC)

  1. Yeah, that sounds fine. Not much need for a proposal in this case, I think. StrawberryChan (talk) 19:39, 15 May 2020 (UTC)

Vetoing this proposal so this can be moved to Talk:Warp Star. -YFJ (talk · edits) 23:07, 15 May 2020 (UTC)
