Forum:Tlh: namespace logo contest

From Illogicopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

{{#logotipo:/images/thumb/8/89/Free_bloodwine.png/120px-Free_bloodwine.png}} So, we have a new namespace here for the tlhIngan (Klingon) Illogicopedia (tlh:). However, since it is an Illogicopedia, we will need a logo for it. I am using the Klingon insignia as a placeholder until I can find someone to make a logo for me. Just so you know so more of you would be willing to make a tlh: namespace logo, the winner gets free qagh! Dan the Hedgehog is in the house! 04:28, 28 Aym 2011 (UTC)

If you could promise to hold the gagh, I might... consider it. ~ Pointy.png 10:16, 28 Aym 2011
Maybe we should advertise this contest by linking to this forum on the sitenotice so we can get more people to join. Whoever adds this forum to the sitenotice gets free bloodwine! Dan the Hedgehog is in the house! 19:54, 28 Aym 2011 (UTC)
Good idea, but I'll only do it if you hold the bloodwine... *suspicious look* ~ Pointy.png 23:00, 28 Aym 2011
You just aren't that into traditional Klingon drinks and foods, are you? Oh well, all the more for me. Dan the Hedgehog is in the house! 23:37, 28 Aym 2011 (UTC)
Alas; they tend to be a bit much for my delicate pallet. Or whatever the word is. ~ Pointy.png 10:27, 29 Aym 2011
The Illogicopedia in klingon language is open? --RadU 12:06, 29 Aym 2011 (UTC)
A funny think would an Illogicopedia in the language of Vulcan! Cthulhu.fhtagn 15:03, 29 Aym 2011 (UTC)

So[edit]

All entries can either be posted here or on my talk page. Start creating, because they're all due on Jumbly 4! ~[thehappyspaceman] Dan the HedgehogThe Happy SpacemanTheHappySpacemanDanTahHedgehogYouTubedeviantARTTheHappySpaceman.com infodiscussioncontributionsenter the contest NOW!!!WTF?!

To prepare for the contest winner announcement we will all have to do some kind of long ritual involving lots of sweating and bleeding and other manly stuff --Nerd42 04:11, 3 Yoon 2011 (UTC)
OK here's my idea. You have a banana Bat'leth. That's my only idea. --Nerd42 16:40, 3 Yoon 2011 (UTC)

I've got an idea! How about a slightly-modified version of the english Illogicopedia logo, but the latin "Aid epi illogi" ( It is actually "Aid epoc igolli", but Aid epi illogi is actually latin for "A bishop should be illogi Aid" ) and "In illogic we trust" is in klingon. Maybe it could have a slightly-more realistic version of the IllogiBanana too, kind of like the new uncyclopedia logo, but a bit less obvious. Is that a good idea?? - Another n00b 21:32, 5 Yoon 2011 (UTC)
Maybe, but I think that somewhere in there, there should be the Klingon insignia. ~[thehappyspaceman] Dan the HedgehogThe Happy SpacemanTheHappySpacemanDanTahHedgehogYouTubedeviantARTTheHappySpaceman.com infodiscussioncontributionsenter the contest NOW!!!WTF?!

Yes, but maybe it could be somewhat subliminal. And I mean it in the way that you need to stare at it intently for a couple of seconds before it becomes clear. - Another n00b 15:46, 7 Yoon 2011 (UTC)

you should add bat'leth blades sticking out of the banana Readmesoon. --Nerd42 03:31, 9 Yoon 2011 (UTC)
I agree with Nerd. Also, the new Klingon Illogicopedia name is petaQ'a'pedia-- petaQ being a Klingon insult. ~[thehappyspaceman] Dan the HedgehogThe Happy SpacemanTheHappySpacemanDanTahHedgehogYouTubedeviantARTTheHappySpaceman.com infodiscussioncontributionsenter the contest NOW!!!WTF?!

Doesn't that basically translate back into "Bitchpedia"? --Nerd42 01:57, 16 Yoon 2011 (UTC)

Since nobody else seems to be rushing to win the contest by implementing my superior concept, here is my entry: BANANA BATLETH.svg I have discovered that our site's MediaWiki install is badly in need of an SVG displaying plugin of some kind.

My entry is the logo of a true warrior. And it is not just ceremonial: it can be taken down from the upper left part of the screen and used as a real combat weapon at any moment, should the occasion arise. It would bring much honor to any web site that sees fit to wield it. Even Kahless himself did not have such a fine logo for his web site!! --! --Nerd42 01:33, 16 Yoon 2011 (UTC)

Motto suggestion[edit]

I suggest that the motto for the Klingon Illogicopedia should be, "You've never really experienced Illogicopedia until you've read it in the original Klingon." (a parody of the saying on Star Trek about Klingon reproductions of Shakespeare) Can you translate that? I have no interest in learning the language BTW, I just think the idea of having a Klingon Illogicopedia is hilarious. --Nerd42 02:16, 16 Yoon 2011 (UTC)

Good idea: petaQ'a'pedia: SoH ghaj ghobe' leghpu' Illogicopedia chugh SoH ghaj ghobe' leghpu' 'oH Daq tlhIngan-Hol. Oh and by the way, is it just me, or is Nerd the only one who really put an effort on his contest entry? Qaplá'! ~[thehappyspaceman] Dan the HedgehogThe Happy SpacemanTheHappySpacemanDanTahHedgehogYouTubedeviantARTTheHappySpaceman.com infodiscussioncontributionsenter the contest NOW!!!WTF?!

Um, to be fair, actually mine was probably the least amount of effort. I just took vector graphics by others, and aligned them together, putting one behind the other in Inkscape. Some of these other ones look like they've been hand drawn. That takes more work. --Nerd42 18:34, 16 Yoon 2011 (UTC)
I put effort into mine! —rms talk 20:24, 16 Yoon 2011 (UTC)
I didn't mean it that way (sorry if I offended you Readmesoon). What I meant was, Nerd's looks like he put the most effort into it. That wasn't really meant to offend you Readmesoon. ~[thehappyspaceman] Dan the HedgehogThe Happy SpacemanTheHappySpacemanDanTahHedgehogYouTubedeviantARTTheHappySpaceman.com infodiscussioncontributionsenter the contest NOW!!!WTF?!

Grand prize[edit]

Changing the subject, what should the prize be for the winner of the contest? I would have it be a betleH, but I don't know how to ship those over Illogicopedia. Unless Illogicopedia has a store like Uncyclopedia's. Also, why hasn't Athyria/Lyrithya entered the contest yet? ~[thehappyspaceman] Dan the HedgehogThe Happy SpacemanTheHappySpacemanDanTahHedgehogYouTubedeviantARTTheHappySpaceman.com infodiscussioncontributionsenter the contest NOW!!!WTF?!

I thought the prize was free gagh ... or maybe a barrel of bloodwine! we should make an award template "I won a barrel of bloodwine for excellent Klingon-related honor-winning achievement" --Nerd42 00:55, 17 Yoon 2011 (UTC)
Okay, I'm making the template. Why hasn't anybody entered recently, anyway? Dan 16:48, Yoon 23, 2011
I'm still making the template, but I also think we should set a due date. How about July 4? Could an admin please edit the sitenotice so it says "Klingon logo comp entries due on July 4, so you'd better enter quick if you want that gagh and bloodwine, while it's fresh!" ~[thehappyspaceman] Dan the HedgehogThe Happy SpacemanTheHappySpacemanDanTahHedgehogYouTubedeviantARTTheHappySpaceman.com infodiscussioncontributionsWTFacronyms?! tlhPoodleC.A.T.G.W.CheesesSnakesRedirectUnMDHT:G.Y.F.T.G.T.F.A.F.Y. 06:15, 26 Yoon 2011 (UTC)

My banana bat'leth is a wee bit crooked[edit]

It makes me depressed. If I win, or if I feel like it, I will fix that. --Nerd42 23:01, 26 Yoon 2011 (UTC)
