Wikisimpsons:10th Anniversary Ideas

Wikisimpsons - The Simpsons Wiki
Wiki.png

Wikisimpsons is turning 10 on September 24, 2015. And a 10th anniversary needs to be celebrated. Therefore, the wiki is looking for ideas of what should Wikisimpsons do for its anniversary. All ideas are welcome.

If you think of something that the wiki could do for its anniversary, then say it. For example, in 2011, the "6th Anniversary awards" took place. Just give ideas like that, but not necessarily awards. All registered users and all IPs are welcome to give their ideas. The deadline for submitting your ideas will be September 12, 2015. Then, some ideas will be choosen to get real.

To be clear, this page is for giving and discussing ideas about how to celebrate the Wiki's 10 years of Existence.

To give and/or discuss ideas you must always sign your messages.

Ideas[edit]

similar to christmas and haloween, maybe a redesign could occur for the week of it? maybe yellow becomes pink, and donut sprinkles could be scattered? oh, and homer could wear a party hat!--71.162.155.239 20:50, September 3, 2015 (EDT)


We could re-appropriate the show's "20th Anniversary" logo and change that to a tenth anniversary one for the site logo. --Nick97 (talk ~ contribs) 11:38, September 5, 2015 (EDT)

Yes, if someone could work on a special 10th anniversary logo, can you do so please? We have other ideas for the site which we will put in place on the day. But a logo would be good. The Solar Dragon 11:57, September 5, 2015 (EDT)
I'm working on that logo. I've made some possible anniversary logos. Here are 4 versions of the logo: 1, 2, 3 and 4. They look great, don't they? / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 15:10, September 5, 2015 (EDT)
The party horn looks nice, although the hat feels a little flat. Perhaps if you have some way to make the clouds sort of... bend around it, so it looks more circular? I dunno, that may be asking too much, and I apologize if that's the case. I think the 10 on the hat looks good, but I think we should go without the little ball at the end. It makes it look sort of like a winter cap to me. Well, that's my 5¢. --Nick97 (talk ~ contribs) 00:36, September 6, 2015 (EDT)
It's true, the hat needs to look more circular, I'll work on that. And the little ball looks a little weird. I like more the versions without it. Thanks. / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 04:10, September 6, 2015 (EDT)

I don't know if this was planned already, but could the background turn donut pink with donut sprinkles?—Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.162.155.239 (talk) 06:42, September 9, 2015 (EDT)

How about we have a great birthday party for Wikisimpsons on September 24th complete with a big number 10 on the background, Homer wearing a party hat, make Viva Ned Flanders (The tenth episode of the tenth season) the featured episode for the day of September 24th, and you know how we make snowflakes fall for Christmas, well let's do the same thing, only with confetti and balloons instead of snow. But for one day only, the day of the tenth anniversary of Wikisimpsons. {Acooldude: September 10, 2015}

The confetti falling in "christmas' snowflakes style" is a great idea. I'm also working in an "anniversary-themed" logo for the wiki. / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 18:52, September 10, 2015 (EDT)

Plans[edit]

Here are my plans for the anniversary celebration, and the coming months:

  • The ColorSwitch templates will be converted to wiki magic words to allow the server more control over the color switch logic. This will happen seamlessly with no edits required.
  • On September 24th, the new skin will launch with a modified pink version to celebrate the anniversary. I will try to get a customized logo and falling confetti set up as well, time permitting.
    • No advertisements will be shown to any user on September 24th, to thank all of our editors and viewers.
  • On September 25th, the site will be switched to the new yellow year-round skin and logo.
  • From October 11th to November 1st, we will celebrate Halloween with a new version of our black/gray Halloween skin and custom logo.
  • From December 6th to January 3rd, we will celebrate the holidays with a new version of our red/green holiday skin and custom logo.
  • On January 4th, we will return to the yellow year-round skin.

Please let me know what you all think of this, or if you have any comments or concerns! --Jake 14:10, September 20, 2015 (EDT)

I think that sounds great! :) FatHomerTalk 14:21, September 20, 2015 (EDT)
Yeah. It sounds great. Also, If you could get a "10th-anniversary-themed" logo, that would be awesome. The versions I've done are not quite good. / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 17:03, September 20, 2015 (EDT)
This all sounds fantastic. No complaints here. :) --Nick97 (talk ~ contribs) 18:59, September 20, 2015 (EDT)
