Monaco skin

Hullo! I am Kirkburn, your friendly local Wikia Gaming Helper!

Many of ours wikis are switching over the default skins (for anon users) to our new skin "Monaco" this month. Most of the big wikis have already switched (i.e WoWWiki, Wookieepedia Dofus and FFXIclopedia).

Monaco is now the main actively developed Wikia skin platform. As a successor to Quartz, it comes with even more customizability - you can find out more on Customizing Monaco (on Wikia Help); you can also find out info about the new features and widgets available. The Gaming team has already creating your MediaWiki:Monaco-sidebar, but you can customize it much further with more links.

An admin can set the default site skin via the skin section on Special:Preferences, or by editing MediaWiki:AdminSkin. If users wish to see another skin than the default, they can untick "See custom wiki skins (recommended)" on the same page.

We really want wikis to move on to Monaco partly because it's more awesome than Quartz and Monobook and partly as it is where the bulk of our resources are currently aimed :) Please report any problems or questions with Monaco here

Switching to Monaco sounds like a great idea to me, there was some discussion about this some months ago if I recall, but nothing has come of it as yet. I'll have a chat to the others about it. :)
P.S., apologies for the late reply, I haven't been spending nearly as much time here as I should lately. :( --MattyDienhoff 17:14, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
