I have a big problem on all the Wikis. They have all the colour blue. Even this Wiki. I don't know why and I wanna know why and how I can change a thing. Lostpedia is in blue colour, Prison Break Wiki in blue colour etc. Please help me with this, I have this already a long time. My theory is because I changed the colour of Prison Break Wiki, but I'm not sure. How can I save this problem?--Station7 20:52, April 13, 2010 (UTC)

You have probably selected monaco sapphire as your default skin (in Special:Preferences) and unchecked the box that allows you to see each wiki's custom skin. Ose TalkContribs 21:25, April 13, 2010 (UTC)

And how can I change this Ose?--Station7 16:07, April 14, 2010 (UTC)

Uhm... re-check the box? Ose TalkContribs 17:37, April 14, 2010 (UTC)
The one that says Let the admins override my skin choice, just in case. The 888th Avatar (talk) 23:20, April 14, 2010 (UTC)
I seem to have a similar problem - and I'm adding to this existing thread 'cos its still fairly recent... All my wikis seem use the monaco sapphire skin. If I log out, then they use their own, custom skins. I've checked my preferences and and my 'default' skin is the 'old' wowwiki skin, and I *do* have the Let the admins override my skin choice box checked. This happens across browsers, and across sessions. I've logged in/out, hard refreshed still no banana. I've checked just about all I can check. Any ideas? --Sting-Ray ZA 12:01, April 21, 2010 (UTC)
Oh - just remembered - this only seems to have started over the last month or so - before that it was fine... I've edited stuff on multiple wikias over the years with no problems... (hmm... this started shortly after I began to peruse the DragonAge wikia - coincidence?) --Sting-Ray ZA 12:04, April 21, 2010 (UTC)
I'm not sure what you mean by the "old wowwiki skin" - do you mean "Carbon" in the preferences or something else? The 888th Avatar (talk) 12:55, April 21, 2010 (UTC)
It's a bit difficult to explain, so I took a screenshot, available here (I was a user on the original wowwiki before it moved to wikia) --Sting-Ray ZA 13:24, April 21, 2010 (UTC)
Should I maybe change my default and see what that does? (I don't want to go ahead and just change it and then it breaks my wowwiki view too) --Sting-Ray ZA 08:44, April 28, 2010 (UTC)

That might be a good idea; that "wowwiki" skin is certainly very old and may not have been taken into consideration in more recent changes to Wikia's skins. Ultimately, however, the best response for you will come from Special:Contact. The 888th Avatar (talk) 23:56, April 28, 2010 (UTC)

Hmm... I decided to just do it - before I wasted any staff time, and *pow* it worked. All my wikis seem to be using their own, proper, skins now. Thanks for the assistance! --Sting-Ray ZA 06:49, April 29, 2010 (UTC)
