20071209 Graffiti re-vamp

Suggestion type

Suggestion scope

Suggestion description
To begin with, I would like to credit This suggestion for providing me with the inspiration for my suggestion. While I beleive that my suggestion differs enougth not to be considered a dupe, It would be unfair of me not to credit my inspirations, as well as all the people who provided input on the talk:discussions page. Thank you all.

When the graffiti tab is selected, it now opens up three new drop-boxes that allow some users to select what they want their graffiti to represent. If the player chooses not to select anything then the default applies and the text turns up as XXXX In crude capital letters Buying the tagging skill opens up some further stylistic options, noted with (TR) or tagging required. While I agree that having one spray can produce many different colours, I beleive that keeping this as simple as possible is going to be the difference between a workable suggestion and a general pain in the arse. After all, realism does not always equal fun.

The new Graffiti tab will be laid out like this (after you click on the graffiti option button this opens up, in a similar way to clicking on a mobile phone. You no longer would type in the text and press Graffiti)

[Where you write the text] [Dropbox 1 Graffiti Type] [Dropbox 2 Writing style(If writing selected] [Dropbox 3 Colours]

These are

Graffifi Type

  • A crude picture depicting
  • A heavily stylistic picture depicting(Tagging Reqd)
  • A realistic picture representing(TR)
  • Writing (default

Writing style

  • In crude capital letters (default)
  • In a heavily stylised style (TR)
  • In heavy gothic lettering (TR)
  • In an intracate fine script (TR)


(this only applies to writing, and shows up onscreen in the stated colour)

  • White(default)
  • Black(TR)
  • Red(TR)
  • Purple(TR)
  • Orange(TR)

Basicaly I'm seeking to add a bit of flavour and turn the tagging skill into something a little bit more worth buying.

  7. Keep Flavor, how I love thee. --Heretic144 22:23, 9 December 2007 (UTC)
  8. Keep! Flavor is teh taste. Now comes in licorice, orange, cinnamon, and banana flavors, but not strawberry, because I hate strawberries. (If anyone can figure out that reference, say so on my talk page. You will win a prize, sorta.) --The Trichloroethane Potato SGP E! RQ! Winner 1! 00:33, 10 December 2007 (UTC)
  9. Keep!-Flavor is good.--Kolechovski 01:12, 10 December 2007 (UTC)

  11. Keep - "A crude picture depicting an obviously irritated Zebra with a shotgun is sprayed on the wall" :D --TriPolar 01:40, 10 December 2007 (UTC)
  12. Plain, uncolored keep- I've always wanted for graffiti to stick out a little more, especially if you put a lot of time and effort into it. Also, I believe this suggestion is nothing like the one it is based off of (in a good way), and cannot see how anyone in their right mind could vote dupe on it.--Grigori 03:30, 10 December 2007 (UTC)
  13. Keep - A nicely done one. Adds plenty more functionality. –Ariedartin Talk 05:24, 10 December 2007 (UTC)
  14. I pointed out another dupe when this was being discussed. But I'll let it slide. --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 11:19, 10 December 2007 (UTC)
  15. Keep - I like this, good flavour.--MichaelRead 12:19, 10 December 2007 (UTC)
  16. Like Hell it's a Dupe - Don't you people know how to read? --Midianian|T|T:S|C:RCS| 14:16, 10 December 2007 (UTC)
  17. Keep - Anti Gorefest5 has spraypainted a Keep vote onto this voting box. --Bring The Pain!Anti Gorefest5Fight The Pain!TMW!B! 15:50, 10 December 2007 (UTC)
  18. Keep - I like it, It add other flavor in the game--Worthog117 16:03, 10 December 2007 (UTC)
  19. Keep - flava --Pavluk A! E! 16:04, 10 December 2007 (UTC)
  20. Keep - MOAR FLAVOR!!!--Vortexx 21:04, 10 December 2007 (UTC)
  21. Keep - Seems pointless and overly complicated. Just like this keyboard. CURSE YOU CONTROL KEY! WHERE ARE YOU! I CAN ONLY SEE ONE THAT SAYS CTRL!!! BoboTalkClown 01:37, 11 December 2007 (UTC)
  22. Keep – As Midianian. ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 03:45, 11 December 2007 (UTC)
  23. Keep As everyone above me... ~A`Blue`JellyTME*V*I*L*? 04:00, 11 December 2007 (UTC)

Kill Votes

  1. Just seems overly complicated. Maybe just a "writing" tag box or a "art" tag box.--Pesatyel 05:57, 10 December 2007 (UTC)
  2. Kill - a bit too much of stuff, don't you find? it's not a graffiti sim. Althought when i thought about seing colorfull graffiti in city - i found it interesting --~~~~ [talk] 07:39, 10 December 2007 (UTC)
  3. Kill - Colored graffiti is a killer for me, it would get annoying fast. Also, I may be out of it but, what does the link you provided have to do with this suggestion at all, you don't once mention listing charges in spraycans, i.e. it's not a dupe but the link confuses the issue.--Karekmaps?! 07:48, 10 December 2007 (UTC)
  4. Kill - Seems pointless and overly complicated. Just check the Great Graffiti page to see what people are capable of without this. Ooh, here's one I just though of that you could do... "Someone has spray painted over this suggestion, and then urinated onto a wall." If you change it from "spray painted" to "spray painted writing" or "a crude picture", or whatever, you're actually limiting what someone can do with their spray cans. --Ms.Panes 09:20, 10 December 2007 (UTC)
  5. Non-dupe/Kill - I am making a non-dupe vote, as this suggestion is clearly not the same as the provided dupe votes. There are some things that this suggestion takes into account (ie. Colored spraypaint), but this suggestion is different by providing "spraypaint templates" if you will. However, even with the non-dupe vote, I'm not a fan of this suggestion - I think it's just too complicated for something I feel should be simplistic. --Ryiis 15:10, 10 December 2007 (UTC)
  6. Kill - I want to like this, but it's too complicated and would ruin graffiti--CorndogheroT-S-Z 23:53, 10 December 2007 (UTC)
  7. kill - weakly. i like the idea, too, but this is a little complicated... and not actually realistic in the context of real world tags... --WanYao 10:33, 19 December 2007 (UTC)
  8. Kill - Unneeded -- boxy talki 02:05 23 December 2007 (BST)

Spam/Dupe Votes

  1. [Dupe] Changing 3 words doesnt make it different. And all that can be done without this suggestion. Omega 01:29, 10 December 2007 (UTC)
  2. Dupe- Author pointed out dupe. -- BKM 01:57, 10 December 2007 (UTC)
    RE This isn't a dupe. It draws some inspiration from the coloured spraypaint suggestion, but if you looked at what I had linked to (I.E the peer reveiwed spraycan suggestion) you'd know it wasn't a dupe. Please try to read a suggestion fully before voting next time. --SeventythreeTalk 09:43, 10 December 2007 (UTC)
  3. Dupe/Spam - The Dupe part isn't the "amount left" that the other two are linking to, it's this Colored Spraypaint one in PR. The Spam part is all that needless stuff about the type of grafitti and the style and blah blah blah. --Funt Solo QT Scotland flag.JPG 11:52, 10 December 2007 (UTC)
    RE Firstly, thanks for highlighting the suggestion I was trying to provide a link to, yes, the coloured spraypaint suggestion is the one I meant. Secondly I wasn't aware that "part dupe" was valid. Sure, part of my suggestion is similar in part to another suggestion, but I didn't realise that this made it a dupe.--SeventythreeTalk 12:14, 10 December 2007 (UTC)
    Which is why I voted Dupe/Spam. The part that's good is a dupe, and the rest is spam. For purposes of vote counting, this vote is a Spam vote. --Funt Solo QT Scotland flag.JPG 17:46, 10 December 2007 (UTC)
    O.K, well thanks for the clarification--SeventythreeTalk 19:59, 10 December 2007 (UTC)
  4. Spam - A crude picture depicting a zombie raping a human + other graphic details... --/~WOOT~\ 19:03, 19 December 2007 (UTC)
