Colorless symbol.jpg vs Manac.png[]

How is this Manac.png, better than this Colorless symbol.jpg? --Hunter (talk) 09:06, 23 December 2015 (UTC)

"{W}{U}{B}{R}{G}Colorless symbol.jpg" or "{W}{U}{B}{R}{G}Manac.png", what is nicer? :)
I think we should wait the official Wizards site to give us the official image. --Tuamir (talk) 11:35, 23 December 2015 (UTC)
It is smaller, round (therefor looks like a mana symbol) and more in line with the other mana symbols. It is however not ideal, since the others have a shadow effect making them different (and pop a bit better). Also the format is wrong since the other ones are gifs. Do we use official images right now? The Gatherer images look different from the ones we use.- Yanderesliver (talk) 11:45, 23 December 2015 (UTC)
Ah you added the pop effect, thanks Tuamir. - Yanderesliver (talk) 11:50, 23 December 2015 (UTC)
Fortunately, as a wiki, we can endlessly rework pages. We don't have to wait for the One True Edit. If it's a legal concern, I think we're in the clear here, as long as that wasn't cropped from a previewed/leaked card. We have a reasonable fair-use claim to a user-created, educational-purposed, low-resolution example of WotC's presumably trademarked icon. When they update the fan-site kit with a nicely licensed version, we can easily replace it. --Corveroth (talk) 19:20, 23 December 2015 (UTC)
I have uploaded a nicer version :) --Tuamir (talk) 03:34, 24 December 2015 (UTC)

By the way, why the Colorless symbol.jpg image page says that Ajani Goldmane, Allied color and Xenagos pages link to that symbol? I don't understand. --Tuamir (talk) 11:35, 23 December 2015 (UTC)

because it was somehow included in the Template:Neowalkers template. And the File-usage was still cached for this pages. --Hanmac (talk) 12:41, 23 December 2015 (UTC)
