People against the skin:Edit

  • The title says "people against the skin", I thought *cough* know *cough that everyone is against the skin. Some are just more tolerant of trash. I say some but i mean like 2 or 3 people. I know I read one person say they're only tolerating it because they're sick of the arguments.--Zyeriis 16:08, October 22, 2010 (UTC)
  • You're pushing people away by being stubborn. You don't know best. Nemle October 13, 2010

  • Bwog 22:18, September 2, 2010 (UTC) No skin or we leave!
  • Thesaurus Rex 22:37, September 2, 2010 (UTC) The new skin is just horrible and jumbled up. It's like taking a recliner and jumbling up all the parts, saying it's more convenient.
  • Absoulutly horrible looking, plus there is no shoutbox or other widgets!!! Mackmoron11talkcontribs 02:17, September 3, 2010 (UTC)
  • Juliet fan says no to the new skin!! SKIN = SIN!!!
  • ---Blackout- 20:18, September 3, 2010 (UTC) This skin makes me want to charge into Wikia's offices with an AK-47.
  • I don't believe in changing wikis without consulting the actual users who make it up. Seritinajii 03:16, September 4, 2010 (UTC)
  • Like I said, change can be good, but it depends on the change. This does not look like a good change. --Henry Medals - Broken Mirror 03:29, September 4, 2010 (UTC)
  • I like Monaco better.-- Danny (Monster2821) (talk)(random page) 02:23, September 5, 2010 (UTC)
  • Can't you allow sites to choose their default skin? Let the weirdos that want it get it. The only reason you are forcing it is because you, Wikia Staff, KNOW that no one would use it if it was a choice. -- TurtleShroom™!

  • Yes, they spent money on it. Yes, they think it's better. No, people don't like it. FEW PEOPLE are even tolerant of it... P.png Frank-West P.png 00:47, September 19, 2010 (UTC)

  • I think the current one is just fine. It's very practical and the new one just doesn't look like it. Bereisgreat 16:50, September 21, 2010 (UTC)
  • With the new skin, it is hard to focus on the article. There are also way too many links that lead to other wikis. MontagnaMagica|Talk 20:04, September 23, 2010 (UTC)
  • Wikia is fine just the way it is. we don't need change! Plus "Oasis" is just plain OVERDOING IT with advertising for the wikis everyone knows about (meanwhile the smaller wikis are never even noticed) The Dolphanatictalkcontributions 20:34, September 23, 2010 (UTC)

  • In my humble opinion, it would be a mistake for wikia to release this skin in it's current form, or any form that it is likely to evolve into in the foreseeable future. It scares me that there is the perception of this major change being required, and that the solution to the requirement is this skin. I don't think a petition is likely to change this outcome, but I would like to register my concern for the wellbeing of Wikia's service (which provides readers and editors). In my opinion, if this skin was released in it's current form, Wikia would lose readers - due to the form factor. Especially in the case of wikis where there are competitors. -- RandomTime 20:49, September 23, 2010 (UTC)

  • SCM - Talk 23:37, September 29, 2010 (UTC) This skin is just horrible. I'm having trouble just reading things because of how many unneeded changes there are.

  • I may not use Monaco any more, but I'd sooner switch back to it than come within a million miles of willingly using the abomination known as Oasis. In fact, the name "Oasis" implies something rather pleasant... doesn't this violate the Trade Descriptions Act or something? Also, I do not want the default skin on my wiki to be Oasis.

  • The New skin proves the following: 1) That the creatures in Star Trek exist 2) That the Dominion, specifically Vorta agents are in control of Wikia and have developed this new skin - their lack of an Aesthetic sense is clearly shown by the uglyness of the new skinAgent c 16:01, October 9, 2010 (UTC)
  • You say this new skin is so that people can see what else Wikia has to offer. Well here's the thing - I don't care. I go Wowwiki and The Vault and Memory-Alpha and others specifically to look at things on those wikis, I could care less what wiki is the current "wikia spotlight," and a box taking up 1/4 of the page showing me that does not encourage me to visit one of those wikis. On the contrary, it encourages me to leave. Vund223 07:26, October 10, 2010 (UTC)
  • If I wanted to look at that sort of skin, I would look at a 12 year olds blog. Escyos 07:34, October 10, 2010 (UTC)

  • As one of the leading editors on a minor wiki, I'm afraid that I must respectfully disagree with the implementation of the new skin. The fixed width of pages is a waste of space on many computers, and also looks sloppy. The removal of the left column of information makes it harder for editors to navigate the guts of the wiki, and makes it harder for users to find our highest quality changes. Monaco, though not perfect, seemed like the better choice, and although I appreciate the new aesthetic, the fact that it makes editing and navigation difficult is too much of a price.--Salnax 01:24, October 13, 2010 (UTC)
  • Glad they reverted it for the moment. Hope it stays gone. Forcing people to have something no one wants, a horrible color scheme that made things unreadable, plus the loss of the navigational side panel necessary for proper searching, is ridiculous. Dream Focus 11:01, October 13, 2010 (UTC)
  • The layout is just terrible. I expect loss of many users. The less social crap is there, the better. We don't need that stupid sidebar, we need the old, useful one. Also, menu under a menu is confusing - mainly because the "Wikia" one is bigger and more noticable than the actual menu. And there are more issues, this is just a small portion. p4 17:39, October 13, 2010 (UTC)
  • Like many others it seems, we at The C.I.R.C.L.E. Wiki greatly prefer the current format over the new look. ~Åusår
  • If I were to start a Bad Ideas Wiki, this would be the first page I created. --Gp75motorsports REV LIMITER GT-PT/GT-EN/CSW 21:06, October 13, 2010 (UTC)
  • I'll keep using wikia, but stil ii hate the new look. I might just make that bad ideas wikia. --NintendoLover is OUT! 21:22, October 13, 2010 (UTC)
  • --DogDays124 23:23, October 13, 2010 (UTC)DogDays124. Hell no! Hell NO! Hell NOOO!!! I will not stand for this!
  • The main reason I first started using WoWwiki was because I had an underpowered computer, and the other sites bogged down my computer too much with their fancy pages. The value in wikis is the solid, reliable information they provide - not the latest, coolest eye-candy. "A man cannot serve two masters." Let's keep wiki what it is best at, rather than trying to be what the other sites already are. keyesc
  • I thought I could put up with the new layout and try to make my wiki work, but it's just too horrible of a design. --Bobofango 00:50, October 14, 2010 (UTC)
