New Skin

Post by Admin on Thu Apr 29, 2010 1:40 pm

Hi all!

I'm going to attempt to use the Forum quite extensively over the next week or two as currently we have fewer convenience links than what most people are used to. As the Forum is currently easier to navigate, I'll be making this thread a priority. Currently is is quite simply easier to navigate than the Wiki. So, I'll get down to trying to answer some of the questions you may have and giving you some info about what to expect over the coming weeks.


What Will The Wiki Look Like?


  • Decision pending. I've heard that dark is bad, dark blue would be nice, perhaps a black background - the list goes on.
  • I will be putting forward a few possibilities for consideration. The first one is likely to be the style of our Forum, so take a good look around.
  • Drastic changes in colour scheme are unlikely. UnAnswers will most likely remain a dark and sinister place - to accurately reflect the soul of each and every contributor.
  • The new skin is all about it being centered. Which annoys those of us with widescreen moniters to no end. As of now - no remedy for this is planned or likely.


I Don't Like The New Skin...


  • Well I won't be finished doing large-scale stuff for around two weeks. Bug fixes will mostly likely be going on for as many months.
  • I can't please everyone, much as I might try. If you don't like the finished product - tell me. I'll be able to give you instructions on how to view it with your own skin.
  • While you can do so and I will do my best to help you - I will not invest much time in helping people who encounter bug fixes using anything other than the main skin. I'm sorry, but I'm going to start university soon and frankly don't have the time. I'm not the only Administrator on UnAnswers, so ask around for help if you like - I won't be in the least offended. If the other Sysops don't wish to get involved then you'll need to either fix the bugs yourself, or choose between a few small errors and the main skin. Sorry.


I Found A Bug!


  • Careful not to step on it; you'll walk it into the carpet...
  • By all means tell me about it if you wish. However, until we know what skin we're using long-term, I won't bother with anything other than the most groundbreaking of problems. It's simply not worth the hassle.
  • To tell me about a bug when the skin has been finalized, you can respond to this posting, tell me on my Talk Page, or hit me with a Board Message. If none of these are convenient you can send me an e-mail - but this will most likely cause a delay. If I'm on IRC at the time, that works too.


I hope that I've covered most of the bases here. If you've any questions I'd be only too happy to help you, and I'd like to thank all of you for your patience and understanding during this hectic time for UnAnswers.

One thing I'd like to note (as I have done again and again and again): I'm worthless with the code, so if you ask another admin, I think RT is your best bet Razz

That's what she said. Mmm, I think monobook is a better skin; this one is too wide for my screen (virtually the entire search box is cut off). I hope RTs forum post caused a favorable reaction. I do not know of people who approve of this lovely skin, do you?

Yallow, that could... possibly... be sorted with CSS hacks. I can't say for sure without seeing the problem first-hand.

I prefer Monaco, but eh. We'll see what happens.

Be warned the new skin has been unpopular since forever. They've yet to start caring.

I believe it must be humanly impossible to like it.

Unless you work for Wikia Inc. of course.
