Discussion

Could we see a preview of how each favicon would look on a tab? Scrooge200 (talk) 03:40, 28 December 2020 (UTC)

I can provide them. One, two, three. StrawberryChan (talk) 03:47, 28 December 2020 (UTC)

I should note for full disclosure that I designed icon 3, the pixel art one. I have no major preference between the three, but I want to point out another merit of my icon; favicons are typically so small you can barely make out detail, but having a pixel art icon will make the logo fully readable from a small view while still being recognizable. (Like so.) The other two are still recognizable at a small size due to Kirby's iconic shape, but will lose some detail in the process. Any of the three are an improvement from the current, either way. StrawberryChan (talk) 03:47, 28 December 2020 (UTC)

To be honest, I don't see the reason why we should change the favicon. Sure, it is not symmetrical, but that's what gives it the charm, IMO. In fact, if it weren't for this referendum, I wouldn't have noticed that the favicon is not perfectly symmetrical. But we don't have to be perfect. :) But if the editors here really don't want the status quo, then I'd be okay with option 1. The others, while nice, doesn't preserve the original charm the status quo has. Being able to recognize immediately that you are on WiKirby and not some other kind of Kirby fansite is important to me. pandakekok9 (poyo) 04:10, 28 December 2020 (UTC)

I think 3 looks nice up close, but it's hard to recognize on a tab. --Obsessive Mario Fan 21:39, 1 January 2021 (UTC)
