Replace, Apology, a few Changes Requested[edit | edit source]
This is a big rant, and I was sorry for my previous actions.
I visited the CPW with Monaco skin, and one of the advertisements said "become the Ultimate Pimp", and "Only one can Pimp. A Strategy game." They were referring to the bad word involving... intimate relationships. I don't think the Wiki users on the CPW should be seeing that. The Club Penguin Wiki is an obsessively censored community where swearing could get an instant block. You see, we have some users at seven (7) or eight (8). That may sound harsh, but it is a strict policy that is accepted. Yes, I do know that Wikipedia is not censored (and nor is that wretched Uncyclopedia), but the CPW is, and we like it like that. Young children shouldn't be exposed to that kind of thing on a wiki, or at least the CP Wiki.
Also, you can't ignore the fact that Wikia passed the Monaco as the eternal IP mandatory skin without the general community's consent. The previews used for the new skin release were some of the largest wikis in the database, the Muppets Wiki was the spotlighted one, and I did not see a small wiki once on that page. The CPW is a miniature database, and it is really hard to load.
Then there's the part that bothers me the most:
The Monaco and Monobook Sidebars, Links, and everything else use entirely separate MediaWiki code for their programming. The CPW used the sidebar long before anything else, and now some of us have no clue how to edit our once easily accessible code.
It would do a great benefit for the CPW if you could release a Special Page that divides the Media Wiki code into its uses, like what will be seen on the interface, say replacing IP Address with "stowaway" for a unique theme, the theme there would be nautical, for instance. Renaming Sysop and Bureaucrat to the wiki's subject/theme would make a lot more wikis stand out for example. Once again, for nautical terms, "Sailor" could be "User", "Stowaway" could be IP addresses, "First Mate" for Sysop, ect. It would allow a lot more creativity among the wikis if the system messages were organized by their affect or what they do.
It would also be good to have a Special Page that shows all of the things in the Monobook skin side-by-side with their Monaco counterparts. This way, the small wikis could make an easier transfer to Monaco, which would speed up loading times by loading similar MediaWiki instead of a separate edition of each skin.
I apologize for the rant at the top, but I really thought it was greed... I request the Wikia company's forgiveness, though it would be handy to grant my special page requests, as well as tking down the dirty advertisements on the Club Penguin Wiki.
Once again, I apologize for my behavior,

- Also, "Jesus Loves You and Died for You!!" isn't appropriate here, and I would like you to remove it from your signature since I (and a few others) find it offensive. --Michaeldsuarez (Talk) (Deeds) 19:53, 11 November 2008 (UTC)
- No, you did not find it "offensive". No sentient being on Earth will ever find that phrase "offensive". Use a more appropriate and logical word; There are tons to choose from, and all less vapid and predictable than the worn-out one that you felt the uncanny urge to use. 22.214.171.124 05:23, November 8, 2010 (UTC)
