Summary by Kghbln

Thanks for your help on this.

This appears to be a tiny but complicated template. The icons should be updated as most of the other templates on this wiki. However, we are stuck or do not have much time to dig in. See this discussion. Thanks and cheers

I copied the styles from the MediaWiki page to Template:Note/styles.css, which is clearly belongs to the template, so it’s way easier to find. It is also not a normal CSS page, so it can be freely edited, you can change the icons. (It’s not yet removed from the MediaWiki page, which should be done to avoid confusion, but the template subpage version takes precedence anyway.)

Great, thank you for making this much better. Cool! However I failed creating a new globe icon so I do not even try to give the notepad a shot. I leave this to others since I hardly work with icons an such.

Well yeah, found this one and wanted to change the colour. However the file is crambled when I open it in Inkscape. Took the png-Version but this could not be resized. Anyways I am really not got at this.

I can do, hold on

I'll leave Tomybrz to it, but for future reference, you can find the colours on https://design.wikimedia.org/style-guide/visual-style_colors.html, and all you have to do in the SVG is adding style="fill: #FFFFFF" to the path tag, so

<path d="M8 19a1 1 0 0 0 1 1h2a1 1 0 0 0 1-1v-1H8zm9-12a7 7 0 1 0-12 4.9S7 14 7 15v1a1 1 0 0 0 1 1h4a1 1 0 0 0 1-1v-1c0-1 2-3.1 2-3.1A7 7 0 0 0 17 7z"/>

would become

<path style="fill: #FFCC33" d="M8 19a1 1 0 0 0 1 1h2a1 1 0 0 0 1-1v-1H8zm9-12a7 7 0 1 0-12 4.9S7 14 7 15v1a1 1 0 0 0 1 1h4a1 1 0 0 0 1-1v-1c0-1 2-3.1 2-3.1A7 7 0 0 0 17 7z"/>

Learned something here. Still do not know why Inscape cannot handle the original file but this is another story.

Maybe a bit late, but what about Yellow50 from the style guide (#fc3)? It’s closer to the original bulb’s color; the current orange/greenish version (as seen at Template:Note) looks quite bad to me. Maybe the background color should be changed as well.

Kghbln (talkcontribs)

This is starting to make me really angry. This whole template is a complete mess. Now how do I center the notepad? The padding to the bottom looks really shitty.

On serveral occasions I noted here that I have no time for this. Now added another 30 minutes of lost time to this. I really need help here.

Kghbln (talkcontribs)

This template is on thousands of pages and it really looks bad after all the rest of the wiki was changed. I somehow would like to move forward here and I am now really grumpy again.

Thanks, great!. The only thing were these depressing or aggressive colours respectively. So I changed this to the traditional colours. Looks good to me.

Kghbln (talkcontribs)

Thanks a lot for bearing with me. I still believe this was a 10 minute task for one person which now took four persons over an hour but sometimes things are just like this I guess. Anyways this is now somewhat sane.
