Maybe everyone knows about it, but I was unaware of this until I saw some chatter on one of the wikia mailing lists last night. It seems that Wikia is moving to the quartz skin in a big way. Folks can continue to use the wikipedia skin (monobook), but the quartz UI (change with [[Special:Preferences]]- skins tab) has features like Chat that will not be available in monobook. Take a look at [[Special:Widgets]], and drag drop one to the right hand pane. Pretty neat stuff.
:Yes, the Central Wikia mailing list has been full of discussion about the new skins. The Wikia management will not mind us changing the default to that, so I've no wish to change it back. From my brief looks at other Wikia while not logged in, I've been impressed at some of the new features. Presumably we can incorporate the best of them in people's standard preferred alternative skins. [[User:Robin Patterson|Robin Patterson]] 02:13, 28 November 2007 (UTC)
