Forum:Horrible color blending
Comment - horrible color blending ugh. go back the way it was please. cant see text very well.
You may need to clear your cache to make the new (temporary) theme appear correctly. In most browsers this is Ctrl-F5. If you're still having problems after this, let us know.12:19, October 24, 2016 (UTC)
- Thanks Gaz, but I'm thinking there really should have been a non-Discord thread for this change. Did mol design this thing? Because it hurts my eyes on Special:Chat... --WINE OF GOOD HEALTH (Actually Stinko) 12:27, October 24, 2016 (UTC)
- Because if it was, the thread would've been ignored because no one can be bothered to comment on them. 03:10, October 25, 2016 (UTC)

- lol this color scheme is fine. I like in fact. -- 03:03, October 25, 2016 (UTC)
The color scheme would be fine if it actually worked right on every page... most pages I've had to look up look like this. This is not a cache issue. Not only does it look terrible but it makes pages literally unreadable.  --AmmakoWolfe (talk) 16:00, October 25, 2016 (UTC)
- That's a cache issue solved by purging the page. 16:03, October 25, 2016 (UTC)
- This is what it should look like with your cache cleared:  -- 16:07, October 25, 2016 (UTC)
I've sent Wikia a request to purge the entire anon cache, hopefully that'll fix most of the main complaints.16:03, October 25, 2016 (UTC)
- I did purge cache before writing my comment and it didn't fix it. But now that you did this, clearing the cache on my end works. I'd like to point out though, as can be seen at the top of this very page, that there are still some unreadable page elements with light grey text on white. :p --AmmakoWolfe (talk) 16:07, October 25, 2016 (UTC)
After using rswiki for years, I finally registered just to see if I had any option to do away with this horrifying new theme. It's more than unreadable, it's doing funky things to my eyes and brain. It's torture. End it please. Bring back the heavenly white. I'm now nauseous from both the muddy purple and trying to navigate this complex site. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Ohschmidt (talk) on 03:23, October 27, 2016 (UTC).
Alright guys, you had your "fun". But seriously, change it back next time instead of ignoring a large portion of users who don't like the skin. Or better yet, just don't change the skin whatsoever. You've angered a lot of people this past week or two. --WINE OF GOOD HEALTH (Actually Stinko) 14:16, November 1, 2016 (UTC)
- Vocal minority*
- There have been basically no complaints since the anon cache actually updated properly. 17:49, November 2, 2016 (UTC)
Comment - Is this about the Hallowe'en skin? I took a quick look at it and it seems fine. The white text is perfectly readable on a purple background, though I cannot account for colourblindness.16:59, November 2, 2016 (UTC)
- Turns out the background on white is AAA for contrast, the links are only AA. Not the worst theming we've had by a long shot. cqm 13:47, 3 Nov 2016 (UTC) (UTC)
Comment - I think there's a lot we can learn from this in the future, although it's obvious a lot of the issues were exacerbated by the heavier caching on resources for anonymous users. No doubt we'll have a similar problem when we change it back.
In the interest of improvements, I've recently fixed the importing of the Less script which, with the addition of converting the main stylesheets to Less, should speed up any theme changes. I've also added more variables to the Less script to make matching the theme easier. Finally, I've started porting [[MediaWiki:Wikia.css]] to Less. Unfortunately, there's still lots more to be done, including finding various templates that have hard-coded inline CSS, but we'll get there :) cqm 13:47, 3 Nov 2016 (UTC) (UTC)
Closed - looks like the Hallowe'en theme was a complete success! I'm looking forward to doing this again next year. --15:24, November 7, 2016 (UTC)
