  • Can't you allow sites to choose their default skin? Let the weirdos that want it get it. The only reason you are forcing it is because you, Wikia Staff, KNOW that no one would use it if it was a choice. -- TurtleShroom™!

  • I may not use Monaco any more, but I'd sooner switch back to it than come within a million miles of willingly using the abomination known as Oasis. In fact, the name "Oasis" implies something rather pleasant... doesn't this violate the Trade Descriptions Act or something? Also, I do not want the default skin on my wiki to be Oasis.

  • The New skin proves the following: 1) That the creatures in Star Trek exist 2) That the Dominion, specifically Vorta agents are in control of Wikia and have developed this new skin - their lack of an Aesthetic sense is clearly shown by the uglyness of the new skinAgent c 16:01, October 9, 2010 (UTC)
  • You say this new skin is so that people can see what else Wikia has to offer. Well here's the thing - I don't care. I go Wowwiki and The Vault and Memory-Alpha and others specifically to look at things on those wikis, I could care less what wiki is the current "wikia spotlight," and a box taking up 1/4 of the page showing me that does not encourage me to visit one of those wikis. On the contrary, it encourages me to leave. Vund223 07:26, October 10, 2010 (UTC)
  • If I wanted to look at that sort of skin, I would look at a 12 year olds blog. Escyos 07:34, October 10, 2010 (UTC)
  • --TalkpageEl_Nazgir 15:11, October 10, 2010 (UTC)
  • Screw the new look --Bobofango 09:41, October 11, 2010 (UTC)
  • As one of the leading editors on a minor wiki, I'm afraid that I must respectfully disagree with the implementation of the new skin. The fixed width of pages is a waste of space on many computers, and also looks sloppy. The removal of the left column of information makes it harder for editors to navigate the guts of the wiki, and makes it harder for users to find our highest quality changes. Monaco, though not perfect, seemed like the better choice, and although I appreciate the new aesthetic, the fact that it makes editing and navigation difficult is too much of a price.--Salnax 01:24, October 13, 2010 (UTC)
  • Glad they reverted it for the moment. Hope it stays gone. Forcing people to have something no one wants, a horrible color scheme that made things unreadable, plus the loss of the navigational side panel necessary for proper searching, is ridiculous. Dream Focus 11:01, October 13, 2010 (UTC)
  • The layout is just terrible. I expect loss of many users. The less social crap is there, the better. We don't need that stupid sidebar, we need the old, useful one. Also, menu under a menu is confusing - mainly because the "Wikia" one is bigger and more noticable than the actual menu. And there are more issues, this is just a small portion. p4 17:39, October 13, 2010 (UTC)
  • Like many others it seems, we at The C.I.R.C.L.E. Wiki greatly prefer the current format over the new look. ~Åusår
  • If I were to start a Bad Ideas Wiki, this would be the first page I created. --Gp75motorsports REV LIMITER GT-PT/GT-EN/CSW 21:06, October 13, 2010 (UTC)
  • I'll keep using wikia, but stil ii hate the new look. I might just make that bad ideas wikia. --50 pxNintendoLover is OUT! 21:22, October 13, 2010 (UTC)
  • --DogDays124 23:23, October 13, 2010 (UTC)DogDays124. Hell no! Hell NO! Hell NOOO!!! I will not stand for this!
  • The main reason I first started using WoWwiki was because I had an underpowered computer, and the other sites bogged down my computer too much with their fancy pages. The value in wikis is the solid, reliable information they provide - not the latest, coolest eye-candy. "A man cannot serve two masters." Let's keep wiki what it is best at, rather than trying to be what the other sites already are. keyesc
  • I thought I could put up with the new layout and try to make my wiki work, but it's just too horrible of a design. --Bobofango 00:50, October 14, 2010 (UTC)

  • TheHomer
  • Cobweb - Oh, definitely! I'm taking my wiki with me, too.
  • Lookerisawesome - I think it's BS and stupid. MAJORITY RULES, last time I checked >:@
  • Kyle123197 - Hated the skin from the second I saw it.
  • TulipVorlax - Not because of the skin though. It's sad because i was in the process of becomming a french helper and now that won't happen. Sorry Wikia.
  • Mrepic - It's time we make a stand. I have two wikis. I'm bringing my new one off wikia, but my other one, the one I hate, I'm cluttering up to give wikia a piece of my mind! Stop Oasis! bring down the wikia empire!

  • GOOD BYE WIKIA! - I am sorry wikia, this is just a bad idea.
  • LumpAss78
  • PK2PK2 - The worstest skin ever Wikia.
  • Chill57181 - Well, the wiki I edit on, the Club Penguin Wiki, is moving, so I guess I'm moving with it.
  • Edward_Chernenko - Because of the new TOS and for thousands of other reasons (Wikia knows all of them from my bugreports).
    Stupid disturbing of Absurdopedia work by staffers haven't made me a big fan of them (it was funny to see how they were reverting edits of legitimate users to their own userpages, where these users sayed that they're leaving, "by the request" of a newly-registered vandal account). They also denied adjusting Uncyclopedia interwikis when the new location of ru.uncyc became outside of Wikia. Now, after the global blocks of User:Solar Dragon and AWA founder User:Smiley12, I'm starting to think that they just became crazy. Looking forward for Angela's return, hopefully she will dismiss all those stupid Wikia employees that are destroying her project Wikia while she is absent.

  • Galactic Empire12/The Leader - Why does CPW and CPFW always say kiddy stuff? Oh well, UNCPW is in the party too.
  • El_Nazgir. The last straw was the global block on Solar Dragon, who is an admin on UnAnswers where I am bureacrat. Their attempt to silence him turned him into a martyr for me.
  • NomadMusik: I mortally despise the new skin. Solar Dragon's and Smiley12's bannings was my breaking point as well. If they ban Raging Blast and Bardock. as well, I'll explode.
  • ShadowFan112: What's the point of a multi-user site, without having the users to vote for what they want, let alone have a choice on the skin!?
  • gboyers - Grand Theft Wiki moved away, and so Wikia banned our staff from ALL of wikia, proving their money-driven nature and complete disrespect for the entire wiki community
  • Misiek (talk) 18:58, October 12, 2010 (UTC) When I saw block for gboyers, I'm sure.
  • Doctor Pain 99 (CTE) - I used to love what Wikia had to offer. The Monobook skin was a great, accessable skin that loaded quickly and looked appealing. Why replace it? Unfortuanatley, it was replaced by Monaco, which had variety, but sucked ass because it drained computer resources and looked unappealing. Fortuanatley, users could still set the skin to Monobook, and then when I started editing I began to use an iPod, which uses the very simple mobile skin that I love. This new skin shit is developed. Guess what Wikia, everyone, and I mean EVERYONE hates it. Wikis are leaving because of this new shitty skin, and Wikia just ignores the community and continue as planned. What the fuck? Plus I read that Wikia isn't even keeping Monobook and Monaco for much longer. Seriously, look how many skins Wikipedia has to offer, and thats a non-profit orginization. Wikia, a large company, can't even offer three skins? That's bullshit, and if Wikia can't offer multiple skins, why can't they just go back to Monobook aka the skin that everyone wants. All of this and I still stood up for Wikia for one reason: the mobile skin. But then I heard about the universal blocking. Wikia, I'm sorry to say, we all hate your new skin, and we should be allowed to speak against it. Wikia should stop ignoring the community and blocking users who speak out against your fucking skin! Wikia gives its users no choice, then when users complain to try to get choice, they get blocked. Fuck, that! I'm leaving, and so is everyone else. Wikia is going to be a wasteland, because they don't FUCKING LISTEN.
  • CartoonistHenning | What did I say, Wikia? What did I say? You should ask yourself what kind of service you are. I warned you before. When one doesn't listen, one should feel the pain. People, this is not the first and the last time Wikia ignores its users. They did exactly the same when they changed from Monobook to Monaco a few years ago. When Wikia blocks others, it is just a confirmation of my thought that Wikia is a communistic piece of **** | CartoonistHenning 19:58, October 13, 2010 (UTC)
  • Юрник (ru)/Praetorian (en). Moved together with Absurdopedia but since I also contribute to Uncyclopedias in other languages, I stand against any of these rotten skins, be it Monaco or Oasis.

If this goes ahead, then I'm leaving Wikia for good. If any of the staff revert this edit, then I'm leaving Wikia forever. If the staff ban me for this edit, I will leave Wikia forever.

  • JacktheBlack- right now I'm seeing what my fellow admins think and fell on this issue
  • Chessmaster - What is there to like about Oasis? Template:Signatures/Chessmaster 18:27, October 2, 2010 (UTC)
  • TheSlicer - I'm usually not one to participate in petitions, but I'm so infuriated by the new skin that I hardly care anymore.
  • Some Color Mage: Whether or not I completely leave Wikia is dependent on the decision of the Final Fantasy Wiki.
  • nh.jg - When the Monaco skin came out back in 2008, there used to be negative comments surrounding the change. I, for one, happened to appreciate the transition to Monaco ever since, but now that Wikia has decided to adopt another skin to replace Monaco, the same trend of feedback has happened again only this time I am part of those people opposing such transition to the new skin.
  • SubAqua I don't understand why the staff isn't listening to those who keep the community running. It's like they're trying to force us to accept this, even though that should be impossible, since we are herre of our own free will.
  • Crotocall
  • TurtleShroom - I'd only take fleeing as a last resort, but I despise the stupidity of the Staff and will gladly leave if I MUST.
  • Blackworm - Why couldn't this have been simply optional? I just don't get it. Why do the other skins need to be deleted? Utterly humiliating and utterly pointless...
  • Scarbrow - Still considering the final flee, but decidedly hate both Oasis's design and forcedness.
  • Iamred1 - I just can go.
  • DelNorte - Oasis is crap.
  • User:JASPER42/sigFight with me brothers and sisters of the wiking world! If The Vault and Resistance go, then I go.

  • I'm not going to leave, because my home wiki of Zeldapedia is not moving, but I seriously hate the skin and doubt I will continue to edit anyhow. Wikia, you are MORONS. -Stars talk 16:14, October 6, 2010 (UTC)
  • Starman125 - Pending until the Kirby Wiki agrees to move.
  • You're mixing your truths with your theories 21:19, October 6, 2010 (UTC) It's just terrible. And stupid. I hate it. Period

  • SPARTAN-118 - RIP Monaco. You deserve more then this.
  • Athena32 -Also, sign here ;)
  • Dubiel - Can't in good conscience say I'm a fan of this crappy new skin. Not only does it seem our wiki will need to revamp 95% of our graphics and templates, it also means we're going to have to rewrite every single article just to deal with the crazy, pointless new layout and aesthetics. Not to mention the whole bloody thing will surely be abandoned for something else two years from now.
  • Landyvin - This new layout is horrible, Get rid of it or I will leave.
  • - Just absolutely AWFUL
  • MickeyHikaruMouse - I'm pro-AWA and I am joining the fight! Oasis is nothing but a miserable pile of shit! Send this layout back to the dark, burning depths of hell!!!
  • Frostheart - Yer...
  • Piplupower
  • Chiefsean16 - Guess we just have to live with it :\
  • Shadowmaster - I'm not really "loyal to wikia". Honestly, I hate the Wikia staff now. The only reason I'm not leaving is because there are a few wikis here that I am a member of.
  • Reptor17-I'm probably gonna leave, but right now I'm waiting to see if my wikia will be leaving, till then, I don't plan to leave
  • Eltomo85 - Oasis is a pile of of shit.
  • Toa Fairon (Contribs AWA) - I'm still considering to go along with other users of the Spam Wiki. And really, I've lost all my respect to the Wikia Staff, because they literally force us to use it, and I hate that.
  • Soxra - Oasis is horrible and screws up formatting on EVERYTHING. Why force us to use something that no one likes?
  • Mojo22106 - I'm doing whatever my fellow contributors do, so if they stay I stay and if not I don't.
  • Agent c 20:58, October 12, 2010 (UTC) a company that ignores its users is doomed to failure
  • Juan José Rodriguez, acting administrator of the Call of Duty wikia - we probably won't be leaving, but it seems the majority of our users (me included) dislike the new skin. However, we respect other wikia's decisions to move and to stay. Juan José Rodriguez reportin' for duty. 21:15, October 12, 2010 (UTC)
  • kjam
  • Speical ops genral minigun-The new layout is gay
  • Roberto1205 00:35, October 14, 2010 (UTC)The new wiki skin gets me dizzy really fast. not enough contrast.
  • Poketape - I'm an admin of the CoD Wiki. We aren't leaving, but most of us support the AWA.
  • Fivex - My decision lies on what the MSPA wiki does
  • Sgt.Sandwich - Per Poketape (aside from adminship)
  • TheUltamate- My decision is largely based on MS Paint Adventures Wiki, but really, Wikia? Really? You couldn't just let Monaco stay an option? Did Monaco really even need changing?
  • RandoMaster07 - I don't want to leave because I'll just forget about it, even though it may be easier. But I'll definitely be on a whole lot less.
  • WoUlD yOu LiKe To PlAy? I promised I wouldn't leave. No matter how bad it gets. I still ha--er, dislike the new look. Atleast give us the ability to change to monaco.
  • BulldozerD11 - The Forced adoption of the new skin is just the latest in a number of changes that effect small wikis that include been sidelined by the new Portal hubs, The inability to add license info in the 'improved' gallery upload, The shift to social site, Blogs etc. I joined to create an encyclopaedia based sited. - UPDATE - As yet to find a suitable alternative Host I've down grade my status from Leaving Wikia to Staying but STILL NOT HAPPY ABOUT THE NEW SKIN - I'll also say that some of the antics/tactics of some on here are not helpfull to getting more users to protest and getting Wikia to listen to users concerns. I'm hopefull that in a short time they (Wikia) will address some of our concerns as they realise they got it wrong (as happened in the past with other changes to the skin and variose widgets/ new features). I'll edit to maintain the wikis and help others, but i'm not actively expanding 'my home' wiki or adding new images from my collection to wikias library instead i will publish them on Flickr and photo bucket as i used to before creatinga Wiki and then post them on several formum. A feature which wikia hosted images appear to lack is the ability to be posted in forums at a reduced size which inturn reduced my participation on forums and the addition of links back to wikia. I Like the original Wikia concept but the recent changes are moving me away from supporting it, like the rise of the 'we know best' admins on wikipedia censoring new pages & quoting polices rather than adding content drove me away from the project originally and led to me starting the tractor wiki here which expanded to cover a far wider range of related material.
  • Typhoonstorm95 20:49, October 21, 2010 (UTC)- The new look is stupid I prefer Monaco. If still doesn't change in a few month I'll consider leaving.
  • Pteriforever 00:59, October 22, 2010 (UTC) -- I'm not leaving, but I'm certainly gpoing to make it hard on the staff!
  • User:Time Guardian - I can't leave yet but I'll do what I can to break down this new skin. If I'll have to I'll flood every single talk page woth words like "We Want Monaco" or "Monaco, monaco, monaco." the list goes on. And trust me cos by the time I'm done with them they'll think twice before shoving new skins to the wiki.
  • Lord Invictus Pane 08:15, October 22, 2010 (UTC) Words can not describe my hatred for wikia right now. Only reason I'm staying is for The Monster Hunter Wiki.
  • User:lucario88 : The only reason i'm staying is because Total Drama Wiki hasn't decided to move yet. If they ever do....I'm out. Peace!
  • Shade - I hate the new skin, it's a worthless piece of cow crap, and it's being forced down our throats. I'm not leaving yet, but I may if Wikia doesn't realize that we are keeping you alive, Wikia. Sure, you'll make money (because of us), but when we vanish, guess what happens?

  • Bluestripe the Wild
  • Mach9 00:26, October 25, 2010 (UTC) I realize that nothing said will ever change Wikia's mind anymore, what will be will be and there is nothing we can do to change the ever-flowing tide.
  • Joeytje50 20:42, October 25, 2010 (UTC) - And i think the whole Runescape wiki agrees. I am staying because i don't want to let the rswiki have editors less because the wikia staff ruins evrything.
  • Wikia is the only site with Monaco. Other Wikis use only Monobook. Monaco > Monobook. But when Wikia wants Oasis, a new skin that is really crappy and saying on November 3rd, we can't use Monaco anymore, THAT IS JUST GOING TOO FAR! SeanWheeler 01:38, October 26, 2010 (UTC)

  • The Forgotten Beast - I'd love to leave this oppressive hell hole but I already made a commitment to VG Cats Wiki, but if this hosting empire keeps shoving bs in my face I am freaking outta here!
  • re2112 I'm content with Monobook but, the old standard skin was much better. I'm going to make my friend an accout and, set it to monobook.
  • Frank-West S'pose it's about time I put my name here...
  • Monaco was much better, and I'm very happy with it. I can't stand Oasis.MystRay
  • Nystus - Thanks for the headache
  • Gnu_andrew - As only a contributor to LyricWiki I don't really have the option to leave. But I can't edit with this new look. I've switched to Monobook but so many features are broken with this look that I don't know if it will keep me on Wikia. Why has Monaco (which works) been removed even as an option and we're left with Monobook, which doesn't work correctly, and Oasis, which is just a joke? How is it possible to work in about 1/3 of the screen while the rest is empty?
  • Axdsilva - They said this makes things easier... What a farce... I shall stay here in hopes of a better future for the sake to wikia... Or stay here on the sinking ship that is wikia, either way, there are too many of us to just let our respective wikis die. They will be succeeded, sooner or later. I just hope that the admins come to their senses. Until then, good luck, may your exodus be justice! ^^
  • Kirbman - There's no room for images or tables anymore, and the articles are hidden among ads, redundant links, and useless features. If things stay the way they are now I'll probably leave.
  • Waddle D33 What is this vomit-inducing insanity that goes by the name of Oasis/Wikia? The staff pretends to be very content with the new skin, praising its goodness in every single blog post, and they go so far as to BLOCKING firm advocates against the new skin. Blocking the opposition simply because they oppose? Do I hear censorship? Maybe some cowardice and stubbornness as well? We are not palatable masses, nor are we brain-dead, mindless followers, and we will never be pushed around and forced into accepting something that we detest.
  • Bluesilver - I would love to leave, but I don't know where I else I can put my work on the Mario, Doctor Who and Pokemon Fanons. However, I'm not making any edits to my pages until Monaco is brought back, or at least something suitable. Until then, I'll be making and editing my pages on Wordpad.
  • Vampyrum Spectrum08
  • Bbhinton15 - I still somewhat dislike the new wikia's skin. However, it'd be senseless to leave the central wikia and turn into one of your own. All in all, I'm like most users in this list, I think "Monaco" should be at least a choice for the many that don't like it.
  • Windhover 1 00:20, November 6, 2010 (UTC)
  • Telos - I absolutely loath the new skin and implore Wikia to bring Monaco back. Unfortunately, most of the biggest/most informative wikis are with Wikia... =(
  • Laraso - I would leave, but my favorite wiki - the Supreme Commander Wiki - is staying, so I just can't. I absolutely despise this new layout, and am now using MonoBook because at least some of the layouts that were made using Monaco work with it. Still, MonoBook is a horrible replacement for Monaco, and the new skin is a cruel joke.
  • Hold the phone, I am NOT leaving, but until they bring Monaco back, I will use Monobook. --Royace forgot where his signature went. 15:58, November 7, 2010 (UTC)

Staying on Wikia but support those leaving[edit]


  • Ghostbusters Wiki will support original editors, and therefore if we link to you at wikia, and you move, the link changes. Like Transformers Wiki.
  • Roleplaying Adventures Wiki: we have decided to stay at Wikia at least for the time being. We hate the Oasis skin, and may reconsider if/when Oasis is implemented and if we find it unbearable. We fully support those who are walking.
  • Bakugan Wiki We took a vote and staying won 15-5 but we still support those wikis who leave.
  • Custom BIONICLE Wiki has decided not to leave Wikia, as a move of any sort would be too hard on the community, a new wiki on another site would not be easy to set up, and it would make it more difficult to attract new users. However, the community is almost universally opposed to the new skin, and supports those who wish to leaves during these hard times.
  • Fantendo cannot leave due to a large amount of ridiculously lazy and complacent users who refuse to do so, but the current admins fully support all the wikis that move... and wish that we could join them.

  • Smallvilleantonio 22:27, October 12, 2010 (UTC):just one thing,if wikia knows everyone is going out for good,and leaving almost all wikis abandoned,why dont they think twice before forcing people to put the oasis skin!the oasis creator is such an as%$&/.
  • Speical ops genral minigun-I SUPPORT ENTERLY I HATE WHOS IDEA IT WAS THEY ARE @#&$()^ $!^@)**%
  • SpartHawg948 - I personally can't stand the new skin, but the community at the ME Wiki wants to try and make the best of this lousy situation. Best wishes to those leaving though!
  • User:Chicken7/sig.css - I like the idea of Wikia, and support them usually. But I am a die-hard supporter of freewill and have a far-left political idealogy. As a 3 and a half year old Wikian, I'm purely disappointed in what has happened and support any action that promotes what wikis are about.
  • Master Bigode 01:30, October 23, 2010 (UTC)

  • Helloher Even if I choose to move my own wikis - my primary project that I do admin for will not move and I will stay here with it. I don't like the skin - but it won't stop my contributions here. Helloher (Death is not my phone number) 15:21, October 28, 2010 (UTC)
  • User:Norman Average / User:Yowuza
  • Slendar - I'm gonna support TurtleShroom and the rest of the other users I know here who are leaving. I will still edit in Wikia though, and if anything, I think that the whole Wikia Staff has now been replaced by trained monkeys in disguise.
  • Eladkse - I support all of those who have left Wikia, but I feel it is better to continue to work there and make the situation better, than move here.
  • I'm staying on Wikia as AStranger195, but I support wikias who are leaving Wikia. --Stranger195 (talk) (guestbook on Wikia on Wikipedia) 09:02, 30 July 2015 (UTC)

Users who don't mind it but still see problems.[edit]

  • I don't really mind it but there are a few problems, you can't view history pages on userpages, the page width thing is REALLY annoying and the wikia bar at the top gets in the way at best. Smuff [The cake is a lie.] 12:34, October 9, 2010 (UTC)
  • I'm crazy, cause it's growing on me! It's like a song, you probably won't like it at first, but it'll make you like you. I hated it at first too... It's unoriginal, but good. I like the new look but if people don't like it they should be given the choice --Owen1983 21:57, October 25, 2010 (UTC)

Users who enjoy the new layout[edit]

  • BTW, this page looks very nice on the new layout. :) --Callofduty4 18:30, October 3, 2010 (UTC)
    • Maybe try something like min-width:800px on the blue bg divs? NayayenTALK 00:42, October 4, 2010 (UTC)
      • It is an eyesore. The blue box has been squished, and most text and headers are misaligned. The gallery has been crammed into a space that can only fit 1 column of images. Most templates are misaligned and do not display correctly. User:Chicken7/sig.css 12:13, October 17, 2010 (UTC)
  • It's not that bad, you get used to it. After using it for around a month, I find it hard to go back to Monaco whenever I need to get on my Bot account for some reason or another. Zamorak 02:59, October 4, 2010 (UTC)
  • I honestly couldent care less about the new layout OR the old one, its just a websiteLeekduck (vote for me, and you will get a hot dog) 18:25, October 12, 2010 (UTC)
  • Holy crap guys, it's just a new skin. I can't believe how much you're all overreacting. -Lord Kenny, (retired) admin of the Zim Wiki
  • the new layout is much more sophisticated. I guess the people just don't like changes -ShismaBitte korrigiert mich memory-alpha wiki
  • Wow you guys are overreacting waaaaayyy too much. It's just a new skin, which in all honesty still looks miles better than this outdated Monobook that is not even used by Wikipedia itself anymore. ---Zantam03 (Talk) 12:09, 30 November 2010 (UTC)
  • Mr. Grille I HATE Monaco.

Undecided users[edit]

The main con is that the only video from a YouTube is supported via <youtube>. But I got the videos from Dailymotion too and I do not want to reupload them.

But on the other side staying is not good too as I don`t like that new skin:
-Less article space to edit.
-I do not need the 'photos on this wiki' box on every page.

Yes, I can set a monobook skin for myself. But I DO NOT WANT that new skin to be default for unregistered users. Teyandee 15:59, October 23, 2010 (UTC)
