[[:Image:Tentative color scheme.png|Guthix color scheme.]] I was thinking of making a new color scheme for Monaco skin. It's really not a bad skin, but it suffers since it looks like a wall of text without customization. So I have drawn up a color scheme and I was hoping you guys could comment on it.

I think this is why we need to archive this page. ChristineTalkFlickr 03:14, 16 March 2008 (UTC)
I've created an archive page and sent a few clearly closed discussions that way. Now we just have to decide which discussions are fit for archiving. Endasil (Talk) @ 21:20, 19 March 2008 (UTC)
Oo I didn't know we already had a scheme in progress. It looks nice though, is it done?? HYENASTE 03:36, 16 March 2008 (UTC)
Heh. Well, I've got all that done so far. Just got a few fixes from one of Wikia's staff, so I feel special getting the rest of it done myself XD Umm, I'm trying to get a time set aside to work with BladeBronson who helped me before. We can chat over IRC, but he's usually busy, and the one time he had some free time, I didn't have working browsers, so now we have to try again. Now Endasil is working on it too, so hopefully things can finally start coming together. However, I wouldn't stop working on yours if you want that scheme, the colors are pretty XD I took a lot of CSS from your monobook to get what I have now. I suggest still working on it, because we could put it to a vote, or you could use in your personal monaco anyways. I would like to say, though, that the monaco I've got up so far is usable. There are some issues with thumbnails and templates, but besides that, everything is pretty much ok. The important stuff anyways. There is a list of "broken" things that have to be fixed, so for anyone reading this, you don't have to tell me about the hugely obvious things (like the main page) =P ChristineTalkFlickr 16:36, 16 March 2008 (UTC)
Fixed the main page.Anything else? HYENASTE 22:22, 16 March 2008 (UTC)
Main page is still a bit off. Polls aren't working, though I thought I copied that off your monobook. Umm. Thumbnails are too dark but that's in the monaco already, just never looked at it, dunno how to fix it. Most templates don't work but changing those will probably screw everything up on monobook or anything else. However, the text in them is white here and black on monobook. No idea why they changed colors, so that has to be fixed. We need a way to use our own redirect image, as the current one doesn't work with this theme. However the redirect image is wiki-wide and cannot be changed by an individual wiki (as far as people in #wikia use, and they were staff =P) so I have to talk to Blade about that because the person I talked to wasn't really CSS-type staff. There's also TOC links which are blue and hard to read, the green would be nice. And when comparing two diffs on a history page, the summary text disappears so it's all black. See [1] and [2]. I think there were some more things I've forgotten about now, but a list can be made here. ChristineTalkFlickr 23:18, 16 March 2008 (UTC)
Can you reupload the image? Dechaineux deleted it Endasil (Talk) @ 20:57, 19 March 2008 (UTC)
Also, I think, given how much attention this has been getting, that it would suitable to create a project page solely for discussion the default skin (logos, colour schemes, etc). Something like [[RuneScape/Cosmetics]] perhaps? We could move our discussions there and have a link from the Yew grove. I'm just thinking that as soon as multiple people try to collaborate on a single project, the discussion will tend to increase, and it would be best not to make the Yew grove any more bloated.
