What? A party? Chicken7 >talk 02:55, April 1, 2010 (UTC)

Idk something fun like that 03:02, April 1, 2010 (UTC)

We could make another skin and put a party hat on the logo similar to what we are doing today, but beyond that would be overkill, IMHO. Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 09:27, April 1, 2010 (UTC)

I agree.   Swizz Talk   Events!   13:18, April 1, 2010 (UTC)
That sounds awesome, but we could also have an ingame party!!! 19:31, April 1, 2010 (UTC)

Sitenotice - Is anything more then that really needed?? Unicorn horn dust.png Evil Yanks talk 01:47, April 2, 2010 (UTC)

We should have more because the wiki is turning 5! 03:00, April 2, 2010 (UTC)

Site notice - I agree with Evil yanks.  Ranged-icon.png Zap0i TalkRune scimitar.png  02:06, April 2, 2010 (UTC)

Party hat on the logo Plus sitenotice, but noooooooooooooo more new skins. Omg please no ever.--Degenret01 09:28, April 2, 2010 (UTC)

Big pink and bright yellow skin FTFW 16:20, April 2, 2010 (UTC)
NOOOOO! Absolutely no more new skins. --LiquidTalk 19:16, April 2, 2010 (UTC)
Don't take it out on the skin. The only issue was that one was unable to override it by mistake, and wikia just so happened to be having server troubles that day, so it took longer to return to normal. We don't necessarily have to do it again, but don't base your opinion on the matter from April Fools. Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 19:19, April 2, 2010 (UTC)
*bases entire opinion on April Fools fiasco* I Don't Like New Skins. --LiquidTalk 19:21, April 2, 2010 (UTC)

We need a special guest; can somebody invite User:Merovingian? sig1.png Spam me w/ lolcatsPottery statuette detail.png Is <insert name here> awesome? I don't know, let me check... 19:00, April 2, 2010 (UTC)

He is currently serving in the US army and has not edited the wiki since 2006. If he where around, that would be one thing, but that is sadly not the case. Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 19:02, April 2, 2010 (UTC)
Maybe if we send a letter to Oprah, she'll be able to get him on Skype for our party? Ancient talisman.png Oil4 Talk 21:24, April 2, 2010 (UTC)
He seems to be very active on Wikipedia, based on his contributions.

Oppose - Put something in Site Notice. That's it. Nothing else. HaloTalk 21:35, April 2, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - Liquid asked me to make a skin for this. Now, before you start panicking, I am reluctant to do this after last time, nor do I personally plan to implement it. It's just being thrown out there. All it is intended to do is change headers to be a pattern of party hats, which it does (though requires a little more work). The skin currently has no logo, and can be found [[w:c:help:User:Stelercus/monaco.css|here]] if you would like to tinker around with it. It could use a pattern with smaller phats, and it would be nice if we got it working for page headers as well (no clue why it is not, it should). That's all it does. No background. Nothing more. Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 01:14, April 3, 2010 (UTC)

I never wanted you to make a skin. D= I said I would be interested if you made one. And I also bear no responsibility should the Wikia servers crash again, and we be left with a terribly ugly skin. --LiquidTalk 01:15, April 3, 2010 (UTC)
I love the new skin but without the color 1 and color 2 it makes the edit bar alll........yea so yea we should use this skin on the 8th...with a new logo of course 02:20, April 3, 2010 (UTC)

Sitenotice, Maybe logo Those are fine ways to alert people to the event. I personally don't mind skin changes, but I know a lot of people didn't like this one sooo... I guess it's not worth doing. It would be cool if we could do something like a small in game gathering, for people who wanted to go... but I understand that's probably tough to organize on short notice. insaneular The original Hazelnut spread 01:47, April 3, 2010 (UTC)

The problem with the skin change is that it gets very annoying when it doesn't get removed and there's nothing we can do but wait. HaloTalk 16:27, April 3, 2010 (UTC)
Actually, assuming Stelercus updates the right file this time, it'll be removed in a jiffy. --LiquidTalk 16:29, April 3, 2010 (UTC)
You know what assuming is though don't you. "Assume(ing) just makes an ass out of u(you) and me." Lol HaloTalk 16:35, April 3, 2010 (UTC)
Lol April 8th is my B-day too! (But I'm not turning five, or am I...) Runecrafting-icon.png Stormsaw1 Talk Sign HighscoresRunecrafting-icon.png 17:01, April 3, 2010 (UTC)

The Birthday should be insane and a party should be held at mudskipper point like at the wikifestEmKeeHammer 23:04, April 4, 2010 (UTC)

The last wikifest was a disaster because we did not have enough time. Asking us to plan a wikifest in four days is the tallest order in the universe. Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 23:14, April 4, 2010 (UTC)

Logo and sitenotice - But nothing huge ;) Ajraddatz Talk 02:55, April 6, 2010 (UTC)


Alright so looking at the comments above we should have a temporary skin, a new logo, and any player that wants to is welcome at my house, FOR AN AWESOME HOUSE PARTY

I will work on the skin, if not for the simply for the sake of learning more about css, should it be rejected (not a shocker if it is). As for the house party, put a notice about it on your userpage, but don't make the Yew Grove your personal advert. Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 00:17, April 5, 2010 (UTC)
I thought that most opposed a new skin?? Anyway, make the skin days in advance so that it can be discussed, in case the skin is garish and awkward like the last one. Unicorn horn dust.png Evil Yanks talk 02:58, April 5, 2010 (UTC)

New skin - Just put on a link for instructions on how to change it back, if you want. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 14:53, April 5, 2010 (UTC)

OPTIONAL SKIN PL0X - Make the Skin and Logo optional, the ones we had for April fools just about everybody hated   Swizz Talk   Events!   14:57, April 5, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - The april fools skin was quite optional. I keep mine on a different setting and had not seen it until I switched to the default skin.  Panjy16  15:43, April 5, 2010 (UTC)

Uh, many people who had the option "let admin override my choice" off still saw the skin. Personally I didn't really mind it - didn't hurt my eyes or something... Ancient talisman.png Oil4 Talk 19:32, April 5, 2010 (UTC)
I thought the skin was fine, but it made the interfces look all glitchy and whatnot. I think Steler should make another one, but just be careful no to mess with interfaces. Runecrafting-icon.png Stormsaw1 Talk Sign HighscoresRunecrafting-icon.png 21:54, April 5, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - The problem with the April Fools skin was partly due to Wikia server troubles. I personally didn't mind the skin that much, and mine is quite similar (though entirely grey). I wouldn't be opposed to a new skin, as long as it overrode all of the colours instead of just some, and could be turned off. I'm a regular user and I approve this message.  TLUL Talk - Contribs 19:42, April 6, 2010 (UTC) 

Favicon - I said this during the April Fools' Day, are we going to change the favicon, or is it too sacred to mess with? I can make a party hat (i dont care what colour) ico a sysop can change the File:Favicon.ico i would do it myself but i'm not a sysop (i wish to be one). So if we are gong to change it tell me or post here and i'll make a .ico of a party hat or (idea) cake (which may or may not be a lie) and i'll bust it out in a minute.

During April Fools' Day no one gave me a direct answer to this so plz ANSWER ME! Not trying to be mean, just want an answer =[)<- read me Full Slayer Helmet! Evil1888 Talk A's L Dragon Platebody!

If you want to become and admin, read the information on the RFA page and make an RFA. I support changing the favicon to a phat. I liek phatz. Ancient talisman.png Oil4 Talk 20:49, April 6, 2010 (UTC)
Don't bother. With 328 edits, and not much experience here, you will just get a bunch of opposes. HaloTalk 20:52, April 6, 2010 (UTC)
geez you dont have to be mean about it, i may not have a ton of edits but i have quality edits, now can we please get back to the topic, Haloolah123 Full Slayer Helmet! Evil1888 Talk A's L Dragon Platebody! 21:08, April 6, 2010 (UTC)
That was NOT even close to mean. I am not describing you as a person, but explaining that it won't be beneficial for you to attempt an RfA at this point. I've only seen your name one other time than on this thread, and often admins are the most known people in the community. I was trying to save you some pain in attempting it, because a lot of people take things personally, as seen above. I apologize for offending you. HaloTalk 21:20, April 6, 2010 (UTC)
back to the favicon: yes, no, maybe so? Full Slayer Helmet! Evil1888 Talk A's L Dragon Platebody! 21:40, April 6, 2010 (UTC)
no1? ..... no1 has any thoughts about the favicon?...besides Oli4burggraa, cuz he liek phatz!
Just give it a while, not everyone checks the wiki every 30 minutes, some people are sleeping as well. HaloTalk 22:44, April 6, 2010 (UTC)
well its been 20hrs, any1 have thoughts about the favicon? Support or Oppose? Full Slayer Helmet! Evil1888 Talk A's L Dragon Platebody! 18:55, April 7, 2010 (UTC)
not much time left Full Slayer Helmet! Evil1888 Talk A's L Dragon Platebody! 20:33, April 7, 2010 (UTC)
like 8 mins left 23:53, April 7, 2010 (UTC)


No time left....admins should make changes as they see fit and my house is open to anyone who wants to come i'll probably be on sometime tommorow....that is eastern time...sorry house is in rimmington and i'll be on world 28
