Mario Wiki Logo by Nelde Mario Wiki Logo by Nelde
This is a logo I once made to replace the current Mario Wiki logo, which I didn't like.
Being a Wiki, there was a vote on whether it should be used or not but it got declined. I already expected that, as my new version is too close to Wikipedia's logo but at least I started a discussion on the general ideal of replacing the old logo, which is all I wanted.

I'd already be happy if they considered a change, it doesn't have to be my version.

So you really are a Mario fan?

It's nice to see a Mario fan who isn't just a raving fanboy/girl. Who see the series for it's whimsical charm and warm atmosphere instead of "OMG PEACHxMARIO SO CUTE I LOVE WALUIGI YOSHI IS SO CUTE!!!!!" people.

Because, to tell the truth, if you're looking for deep characters and amazing story lines, you're in the wrong place. But that's not what I love Mario for!

Yeah, it's true, the Marios series isn't known for great stories (except maybe in the RPG titles) but many people don't realize that you don't need a great story for a great game. Same with graphics.

If you can take it for what it's worth, Paper Mario had a nice story. It's kiddie, it's trivial, it's weird, but the whole "wishes never coming true," Bowser stealing Mushroom Castle, seven star spirits idea was truly a good attempt to tell a tale. It's just that it's for kids and kids at heart. I don't think kids stories should be about true love, world domination or midlife crises's, they should be about things kids can relate to... and that's what Paper Mario does.
However, most people take it too far and make everything for kids be too sugar coated and cutesy to be of interest to anyone, but Paper Mario definitely balanced the cartoony fun with the impending doom. If you can let yourself get lost in the story, soon you too will be fighting for the Mushroom Kingdom and wanting to destroy Bowser.
At the very least, it's better than what Nintendo puts out now. They have so little story that they're literally wasting your time trying to say anything at all. They make it all about the action...

Hehe, yeah, that was me. :)
And I actually only wanted to start a discussion on replacing the current logo. My logo was just a proposition on how it could look. But people didn't really get that and then it was just my logo vs the current one.

Actually, I prefer this one to the current logo... :I
I love this idea! I mean, all wikis are based on the original Wikipedia, after all. So this is very fitting!
I love all the little icons you added on the pieces, too. Nice touch, that is. :]
Wonderful job~ 8D <333

Thank you. :)
Well, this logo couldn't be used anyway, because the original Wikipedia logo is copyrighted. But thanks for your comment. :D

It's too close to Wikipedia's logo (so it wouldn't be possible to use it legally, I think). And of course there is always some kind of rejection when it comes to a new logo, people are afraid of change ;)

It's alright...

But it's simply not Mario without his traditional cap.

Nelde Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2010  Professional General Artist
Yes, that's kinda true. But my thought was that with the cap the hole in the ball wouldn't be visible anymore.

Yet it still doesn't give it the Mario feel and look.

If there must be a hole, move it elsewhere. The logo does not have to exactly look like Wikipedia's.
