Hey all, just wanted to stop by and make you aware of some tweaks coming to this wiki. They shouldn't really affect much in the overall scheme of things, but wanted to give you a heads up anyway.

First, we are going to be changing the way the edit page looks. You can read more about it here, but we're giving it a little more structure and organization. No functionality will be lost (like EditTools) and most of the improvements are just to help users of the Rich Text Editor.

Also, we are going to be getting rid of the little gray history toolbar that appears below the page title as part of our initiative to continue to improve upon the new Wikia look. We simply found that toolbar was getting in the way for most of the major editors and that page interaction improved when we sent out an A/B Test without that line. History will end up in the drop down "edit" menu and, of course, it will remain in your floating toolbar at the bottom (unless you have customized the toolbar not to have it). --daNASCAT http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb32675/wikia/images/e/e9/WikiaStaff.png (help forum | blog) 14:57, April 18, 2011 (UTC)

Just a question, will bugs with the Rich Text Editor like the one that occurs in this kind of edits be fixed with this update? JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 15:57, April 18, 2011 (UTC)

I have experienced that issue too. It happens when I reconfirm my edit after someone else changed the page during my edit.Wizard hat (g).pngMugger759 Talk Contribs 16:01, April 18, 2011 (UTC)

To answer some of the earlier questions, Rich Text Editor issues are usually fixed as they are reported, so I will look into that issue and get it ticketed. However, I do know that they are working on some more functionality as part of this redesign initiative, not just the looks. So some functional improvement as well. --daNASCAT http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb32675/wikia/images/e/e9/WikiaStaff.png (help forum | blog) 03:25, April 19, 2011 (UTC)

I hope you will fix this... Looks like the RTE did some strange things there... JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 15:57, April 23, 2011 (UTC)
