SmashWiki:Custom skin proposal

I've been thinking of making a custom skin for the wiki. I've had a few ideas, so here they are:


For a live demo, paste the following text into either User:Username/monobook.css or User:Username/monaco.css (you 'll probably have to do a hard refresh):

@import "";
@import "";
@import "";
@import "";
@import "";

Tbh, monobook is what we should do. Damn wikia for not letting us make it default. Clarinet Hawk (talk · contributions) 15:54, September 15, 2010 (UTC)
I would make two skins with the same colour scheme; one for the better skin and one for Monaco. Toomai Glittershine Data Node 16:19, September 15, 2010 (UTC)

If you could put up some previews that'd be great. I need some kind of preview to see what looks good.-Ivy73002MS.png 16:03, September 15, 2010 (UTC)

I am currently looking up how to do such a thing without changing the actual skin. Toomai Glittershine Data Node 16:19, September 15, 2010 (UTC)
Have you tried Solar Dragon's test wiki? He'll let you try it out if you ask him. --Havoc'48 19:31, September 15, 2010 (UTC)
@Toomai - You could provide the code [somewhere]. Then, people could copy and paste the code in their personal monaco.css. That way, testing won't interrupt everyone else's view. BNK [E|T|C] 22:26, September 15, 2010 (UTC)
My plan is this: I will make the skins as part of my userspace so I can work on them. People will be able to try them out by C&P'ing as you said (I'll post links once I think they're complete enough), but for those who don't want to do that, I'll be putting up sample images as well.

I really don't like it. It's far too blue for my liking. Not that I have anything against blue, it's just too blue. The tabs at the top of the page don't work very well (the text blue and tab blue are too similar). That's probably my main issue with it. That and the fact that one-color skins look ugly. :/ PenguinofDeath 21:34, September 18, 2010 (UTC)
