Forums: Index Watercooler Template proposal

Wasn't really sure how to title this, but anyway, I'd like to propose we modify our old Wikipedia-like templates we have and give them a little originality (admit-ably also further differentiating us from Smushwikia).

It's like this; I'm not saying we make every template have rounded corners like all the other NIWA wikis, rather, give templates an image base.

Visual example:

As you might have assumed, best use of this is for navboxes. Infoboxes may have a harder time getting the coding and coloring right.

Now, how exactly do they look in mainspace?

Of course, given font colors, readability is a win or lose.

I'd like to test this on Smashwiki too but I'll need an admin to modify the MediaWiki:Common.css with the following:

.finaldest {
   background-color: #006400;
   background-image: url(images/archive/9/98/20110705132637!Finaldestination.jpg);

For a Melee FD overlay.

I'll be sure to test it out when I can but for the moment, what do you guys think of the idea? HavocReaper 14:17, 23 August 2011 (EDT)

I highly dislike the concept of using images for backgrounds of areas that include text, so to be honest I don't feel much like helping.
In terms of making things more differentiated though, I have been doing some messing around offline with minor style changes; the main problem is I can't test anything in real-time without deleting everything that's already active first, so that's why I haven't publicized it.

I disagree with Toomai, and Support HavocReaper48's idea. DoctorPain99 {ROLLBACKER} 19:03, 23 August 2011 (EDT)

Oppose. We don't need more clutter. Miles (talk) 20:16, 23 August 2011 (EDT)
