[7:46 pm] <Hair> "Hey, I thought that we should change the diff colours so we can see the revision easier instead of hunching over on our computer trying to find the freakin one dot revision. makes it a lot easier. thanks"

Our current diff colours.

Proposed diff colours based on Wikipedia's.

The code might be messy. This is only for the Wikia skin. I haven't gotten around to Monobook yet. Obama for president. --Iiii I I I 00:01, October 2, 2012 (UTC)

Support - I was mentioned. Hair 00:03, October 2, 2012 (UTC)

Support diffs Oppose Obama — I want Colbert for president. MolMan 00:08, October 2, 2012 (UTC)

This isn't a political debate What I've done Ciphrius Kane Talk 00:09, October 2, 2012 (UTC)

Support - Finally I will find that 1 dot difference! What I've done Ciphrius Kane Talk 00:09, October 2, 2012 (UTC)

Support - Per this guy ^
Also, I like how the added and removed line changes aren't an eyesore, yet are easily distinguishable.  a proofreader ▸  00:25, October 2, 2012 (UTC)

Support - I don't really care, but the current one hurts my eyes. DeflectRange (talk) 00:16, October 2, 2012 (UTC)

Support - Clearly helps with those annoying single character changes. Hunter cape (t).png Sentra246Blue hallowe'en mask.png 00:18, October 2, 2012 (UTC)

Support - Looks good! =D User:Exor Solieve 00:20, October 2, 2012 (UTC)

(mostly) Support - I like the idea, especially the way it's highlighting rather than coloring the characters, for things like the dots. There's something there that doesn't look right, but I'm not sure whatConcerned Michagogo (talk) 00:35, October 2, 2012 (UTC)

Support - That's better. Now we can see those dots, like Ciph said! — Jr Mime (talk) 00:36, October 2, 2012 (UTC)

Support - Hooray for dots. HaidroH rune.pngEagle feather 3.pngCandle (blood red).png 1XqyDNM.png Crystal triskelion fragment 3.pngHazelmere's signet ring.png 01:24, October 2, 2012 (UTC)

Support - InB4 RS:NOT#WIKIPEDIA. Also, I don't really see why not - it feels more organized to me, and the different colour schemes help me see differences more quickly. Achievements Coelacanth0794 Talk Contribs 01:30, October 2, 2012 (UTC)

Support - Never again will we have to tell the dots mother her baby couldn't be found. Also, PpLbl.jpg svco4bY.png3Gf5N2F.png 01:30, October 2, 2012 (UTC)

Strong support - Already played with the changes previously. 222 talk 01:32, October 2, 2012 (UTC)

Strong support - Omg that is so much better. Btw will the background still be green or what? <.< sssSp7p.pngIjLCqFF.png 02:10, October 2, 2012 (UTC)

It wasn't green when I changed the diffs to this. If it stays green for any reason, it can be changed. 222 talk 02:12, October 2, 2012 (UTC)
It should look exactly like this screenshot. You can see for yourself by pasting the code above in User:Urbancowgurl777/wikia.css. --Iiii I I I 02:44, October 2, 2012 (UTC)

Oppose - Generic reactionary statement. ʞooɔ 02:11, October 2, 2012 (UTC)

DEATH TO THE REACTIONARIES!!! 222 talk 02:12, October 2, 2012 (UTC)
Not sure if serious... Hair 02:14, October 2, 2012 (UTC)

Weak oppose - Seriously... Yes, it's impossible to see a single dot or space changed atm, but red on green looks much better than brown. Especially on oasis, which is brown on brown... User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 05:48, October 2, 2012 (UTC)

Support highlight only - It is indeed clearer in some cases. However, like fswe i find the current colour system of red/green shows differences much more clearly than the colours presented. Especially compared to that dark reddish brown that could sap all beauty and emotion out of the universe. It just doesn't stand out enough. --Eur 14½ - 13½ USA Henneyj 16:44, October 2, 2012 (UTC)

I chose blue and brown because they are complimentary colors and match our theme, and are both used on the RuneScape website. Green and red are neither complimentary nor analogous colors and therefore clash with each other, which to me is harder to read than dark brown against a light background. --Iiii I I I 20:23, October 2, 2012 (UTC)
I believe that the diff page is supposed to be functional as opposed to being aesthetic? 222 talk 01:24, October 3, 2012 (UTC)
Aesthetics are a big part of functionality. If I can't read it because the colors conflict, then it's not functional. --Iiii I I I 01:37, October 3, 2012 (UTC)
If there is one thing I learnt in those three years of drawing class (why couldn't I take extra physics or something...), is that green and red are complementary. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 05:54, October 3, 2012 (UTC)
oh fffffff i'm nooby. Anyway, they don't match our color scheme. Why didn't you take extra Physics? --Iiii I I I 06:09, October 3, 2012 (UTC)

Suprot - Awesome. Ron Paul for president! (just because he's not gonna win anyway). Also, Mark Rutte for president! Oh wait he already won. Yey Netherlands! Boo politics! Wait why am I talking about politics? And why to myself? Have I truly gone crazy? JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 20:13, October 2, 2012 (UTC)

Mr. Rabbit for president! - Proposal sounds good too I guess. anonymous rabbit supporter 20:25, October 2, 2012 (UTC)

Omg I heard about you! You're the guy who's supposed to be on this list! JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 20:36, October 2, 2012 (UTC)

Major support M. Bison says: YES! YES! --Touhou FTW Zaros symbol.png 09:04, October 3, 2012 (UTC)

Support all - Obama and the proposal. If I had had this when I made a mistake in shops template a while back, I wouldn't have had to spend ages trying to find the single bracket that I missed.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Blaze fire12 (talk) on 17:08, October 3, 2012.

Support - Boris is cooler than Obama though. cqm 17:20,3/10/2012 (UTC) (UTC)

Comment - This is only for the Wikia skin. Please don't apply this for Monobook! The bloated spacing/padding, and the extra borders/lines... not a fan. Not an oppose, just a comment...   az talk   05:45, October 4, 2012 (UTC)

Addendum comment from above because of az's comment ^: I support adding this to the Monobook skin. Red, yellow and green just suck IMO.  a proofreader ▸  05:52, October 4, 2012 (UTC)
If it is added then please make it optional or give a way to deactivate this... *smile*   az talk   06:49, October 4, 2012 (UTC)
Here 222 talk 08:34, October 4, 2012 (UTC)

Comment - Just an example: when you use the new diff style when viewing large changes to a page, the diff section becomes too long. (Maybe reduce the top and bottom padding?)   az talk   01:47, October 5, 2012 (UTC)

Request for closure - Consensus is obvious... and this thread is turning into nonsense :3 Hair 21:37, October 7, 2012 (UTC)

(Closed) Obama for president - The new diff colours will be applied for Oasis. Monobook users will receive the new design (whether they like it or not) when Wikia decides to update to MediaWiki 1.20 (the next version which is being used on Wikipedia already, therefore Wikia is just slow because they have a lot more useless crap to test such as Message Walls). 222 talk 04:38, October 8, 2012 (UTC)
