While the following suggestions probably won't pass, I still think that we should strongly request Wikia to allow us to have them.

Some additions that would probably help the wiki in some way or form (even if Wikia doens't see it that way):

  • Widen the fixed-width to WoWWiki size (improves layout). It has been explained that increasing the width will cause problems for people with lower screen resolutions, as such, I withdraw that section of my proposal.
  • Add the Sitenotice Community notice Community messages module to the right rail (improves communication).

If the above passes, we will formally request these minor changes to be made. Maybe, possibly, the power of the community might convince Wikia to make Oasis a little more useful.

Support - As nom. Chances are Sannse and co. will pop in here and say it will not be done... 222 talk 04:52, November 20, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - Basically the best we can do is tell people what to put in their css. HaloTalk 05:12, November 20, 2010 (UTC)

And that code is? Matt (t) 05:34, November 20, 2010 (UTC)

Support - Adding the site notice to the side rail will completely solve The Issue of Communication, and the width, will just be, uhh... better. Matt (t) 05:36, November 20, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - Because having a wider body does not help the 80%+ of users with a 1024x780 resolution or less on this wiki. Sannse already said we had too few users with larger resolutions to consider this feasible. Ryan PM 05:37, November 20, 2010 (UTC)

Alright, don't oppose the whole thing. What about Community messages. 222 talk 05:39, November 20, 2010 (UTC)
I'll oppose it still, if it were added to the rail outside of WikiActivity, I would lose it altogether by blocking it out, unless you know of a way to add it without have hell's wrath from coming on us and have a different id. Ryan PM 19:18, November 20, 2010 (UTC)
If I'm reading this straight, you're opposing because you will not see it personally? 222 talk 00:51, November 21, 2010 (UTC)

Support 2 - Per Joeytje500. --中亚人/中亞人 (Chinasian/Jeffwang16) 跟我谈话 14:53, November 20, 2010 (UTC)

noes its no 500 its 50 Sniff JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 10:52, November 24, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose 1, Support 2 - The widened rail isn't good as it almost doesn't fit on my screen, but getting the site notice somewhere will be good. Hunter cape (t).png Sentra246Blue hallowe'en mask.png 00:48, November 21, 2010 (UTC)

Support 2 - i want sitenotice back. Propose - If it is possible, i hope wikia makes a button in the preferences to change the width of the screen. If they won't: Oppose 1 JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 20:44, November 21, 2010 (UTC)

Question - Is it possible to make the screen size like it used to be on monaco? bad_fetustalk 15:05, November 24, 2010 (UTC)

Wikia won't allow it. --中亚人/中亞人 (Chinasian/Jeffwang16) 跟我谈话 17:59, November 24, 2010 (UTC)
Wikia won't normally allow the things proposed here either. bad_fetustalk 18:36, November 24, 2010 (UTC)
It wouldn't be possible because monaco isn't fixed width but oasis is, plus adding the sitenotice isn't a big change to the layout of the site compared to removing the rail. Hunter cape (t).png Sentra246Blue hallowe'en mask.png 06:35, November 25, 2010 (UTC)
So it's impossible to make it non-fixed? bad_fetustalk 16:33, November 25, 2010 (UTC)
Well if they really wanted to change it they could but Wikia would probably deny they could, or something like that. Hunter cape (t).png Sentra246Blue hallowe'en mask.png 05:25, November 26, 2010 (UTC)
It is possible to make you screen cover all the non-background areas. Ie...make an entire column down the middle of the page. I stole the code for it from Gaz. HaloTalk 05:30, November 26, 2010 (UTC)

Support 2 - No longer would I need to remember to check that section. svco4bY.png3Gf5N2F.png 15:09, November 24, 2010 (UTC)

Support 2 - I completely forget to check it so I never have any idea what is going on for the most part. SardominSign Me! 15:13, November 24, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - Widening the skin still makes it fixed width and so people on small resolutions get sideways scrolling bars. Wowpedia/WowWiki leaving didnt stop Wikia from forcing them theme on people. GTA wiki is also forked away, as has Transformers and Simpsons Wiki. Loads of big wikis are leaving. Perhaps we should consider it too --Gold ore.png Mercifull UK serv.svg (Talk) 18:21, November 24, 2010 (UTC)

Forum:Moving the RuneScape Wiki <- We've had that discussion before. svco4bY.png3Gf5N2F.png 18:33, November 24, 2010 (UTC)
That discussion was prematurely started, and due to comments by some users as well as the nominator it was ultimately never given the chance to go anywhere. HaloTalk 05:30, November 26, 2010 (UTC)
The opinion poll should at least be some kind of indication that most users are not happy with the new "look" (skin) Farming cape (t).png Lil cloud 9 Talk 10:30, November 26, 2010 (UTC)

Question - Is it possible to add some JS code to let it hover above the empty space to the left or the right? JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 11:02, November 26, 2010 (UTC)

Put that on RS:UH instead of taking this thread off topic. 222 talk 22:41, November 26, 2010 (UTC)
It is not off topic. It is about the solution. If we can make it hover above the unused space to the right, we will have more space for article content. JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 12:36, December 7, 2010 (UTC)

Closed - As far as I understand these problems have been addressed as well as they can be. HaloTalk 19:58, December 14, 2010 (UTC)

Wait, what? I don't follow what you're implying here. These problems have not been addressed as well as they can be, especially No. 2. 222 talk 09:10, December 15, 2010 (UTC)
