Request for wide Oasis

Oasis is here to stay, folks. It's out of our hands. So the question is how can we make the best of the situation? Well, take a look at Wowwiki's wide version of Oasis. It was a special concession by Wikia to Wowwiki as part of a conciliatory gesture. Very kind, I think. The wide skin is not currently available to any wikis other than Wowwiki. So, I suggest we petition Wikia to extend the same consideration to us here at The Vault.

I think the wide Oasis skin would benefit us in at least these key ways:

I realize that the above does not address many of the legitimate concerns our community has expressed with the new skin. However, I believe it would be a great help to us, and it's a realistic and workable solution that we can propose to Wikia.

I think Wikia might be happy to consider our proposal, because

  • The Vault community has not left Wikia, even though we have our share of disagreements.
  • The Vault's popularity is very high. I believe we got 6.3 million page views yesterday, which is something like 20% of Wikia's traffic overall.

So, below, please enter {{yes}} and your signature as a sign of your support for The Vault's request to Wikia. Let's not have any complaints or discussion on this page. If you support the request, please sign. If you don't support it, please voice your opinions on another forum page.

We, the undersigned, respectfully request that the wide Oasis skin as seen on Wowwiki be made available to The Vault.

Yes I would like other skins to be available. Sonictheblade 20:22, October 26, 2010 (UTC)

Yes I think it will be a major improvement, but maybe the use of other themes would be nice. (NCR themes ect) --Vampire hunter D 12:50, October 26, 2010 (UTC)

Yes Wikia really needs to give more options on the skins avaiable. --User:Dynamo11 23:47, October 25, 2010 (UTC)

Yes I think that theme would suit The Vault but I think they should give the option to use different themes. --Godge92 10:44, October 25, 2010 (UTC)

Yes Make it available for those who want it, but keep the option available to use the old ones --Gary.Blizzard 01:53, October 25, 2010 (UTC)

Yes looks more modern--Silverfox6000 04:38, October 25, 2010 (UTC)

Yes-- In the name of progress, Ghouly89 (Talk) 20:27, October 24, 2010 (UTC)

Yes It's... better. Not great, but far less ugly. So, sure, why not..JaspertheViking :D? 20:28, October 24, 2010 (UTC)

Yes That would look much better. --Anon talk 20:32, October 24, 2010 (UTC)

Yes WoW Wiki doesn't send back to the top of page as soon as you get to the bottom. - RASICTalk 20:46, October 24, 2010 (UTC)

Yes I agree, the quality for all is much better. Itachou [~talk~] 20:48, October 24, 2010 (UTC)

Yes I agree, and think it is for the best. BaneAu [~talk~] 20:48, October 24, 2010 (UTC)

Yes I refuse to be on the bottom of the list. Paximilian 21:49, October 24, 2010 (UTC)

Yes Please wikia? I'll give you a cookie if you agree. YawningTeenager 20:52, October 24, 2010 (UTC)

Yes while it's not Monaco, it's a compromise that I'm willing to work with. --Kris User Hola.jpg

Yes The Vault has more traffic than WoWWiki. They'd be daft to not give us the same concession. Besides that, WoWWiki doesn't make my browser lag as much as The Vault, and I like the nifty dark color scheme. Go for it. TestECull

Yes Most definitely. --StrikerBack 02:06, October 25, 2010 (UTC)

Yes Better than nothing The14th 02:17, October 25, 2010 (UTC)

Yes I've grown accustomed to the old way, but hey, adapt or die. Or don't. That's up to you. MFToast - talk 03:01, October 25, 2010 (UTC)

Yes -SargeButter69

Yes Well would be better than this. Also why make exception for WoW? - they're already gone anyway...--Mudkipz84 10:47, October 25, 2010 (UTC)

Yes This poll isn't even necessary. Common sense, does anybody over at that Wikia has common sense? --TheBearPaw 11:57, October 25, 2010 (UTC)

Yes Wide Oasis is the definite way to go. Attractiveness matters and Wide Oasis is where it's at. Insane! 04:12, October 26, 2010 (UTC)

Yes Oasis is what this wiki needs. Nathanite

Yes Thecrystalcrow 11:15, October 26, 2010 (UTC)

Yes Mavj96 12:11, October 26, 2010 I think it should be togglable maybe for some users who wish to have classic, I for one approve of Oasis.

Yes 18:35, October 26, 2010 (UTC)

Yes Yeah I don't like the new skins. KingKatarn,The Superfan 19:11, October 26, 2010 (UTC)

Yes I'm personally not a fan of the new skins. So please, allow us to have Oasis. Ratchetdude099 00:08, October 27, 2010 (UTC)

Yes Yes, please. Anything is better than this. Big McLargeHuge 03:20, October 27, 2010 (UTC)

Yes I liked the old layout, but the WOWwiki one works too. WastelanderMac
