This is absolutely ridiculous. The right hand "navigation" showing recent activity/create a page/add a photo adds nothing of value to the wikia experience at all. Nothing. Yet it takes up an overwhelming chunk of internet real estate every single page. Also there's no way that I've found to edit what shows up in this huge right hand bar. Why? Why was this change made? It's absolutely atrocious from every point of view imaginable. The content of a page (which I thought is what wikis are for) is being smushed to accommodate garbage information that no one browsing a wiki for information is very interested in looking at.

How can I edit what content appears on the right? I want nothing there. I want my page width back. Put it on the left hand side so it can be ignored. People who read from left to right are automatically distracted by it. If Oasis is going to be the new default I really would like this change to be done, because so many wikis are suffering from this. I cannot stress enough how annoyed I am by this.

You cannot remove that stuff from the wiki you edit on as a whole, but you can remove it for yourself by adding some code in your personal .css. I think the code is
div#WikiaRail.WikiaRail 
  display: none; }
However that may not be correct. ZamorakO_o (talk) 20:56, October 23, 2010 (UTC)
Note, that removes everything on the right side of the page. ZamorakO_o (talk) 20:57, October 23, 2010 (UTC)
How does one put navigation in the sidebar? --Timeshifter 23:32, October 23, 2010 (UTC)
To put stuff on the top navagation bar you use MediaWiki:Wiki-navigation ZamorakO_o (talk) 16:35, October 24, 2010 (UTC)
How does one put more detailed site navigation in the sidebar where there is room for it? Please see: Forum:Can sidebar site navigation be returned in a show/hide box? --Timeshifter 18:00, October 24, 2010 (UTC)
