Recent change

diff; Don't like the choice of colors, links look very bad and the overall design doesn't fit the rest of the wiki. The campaign images look too sharp (they are squares) and don't fit there either. The profession icons are badly choosen and I don't get the idea of the choice either (how are the icons related to the content?), and I don't like the fact that it's leaving 4 professions out. poke | talk 23:12, 23 January 2009 (UTC)

Painful to look at, kind of cheesy, bad choice of images, background/link contrast or lack thereof decreases usability. Lord Belar 23:15, 23 January 2009 (UTC)
User Ezekial Riddle Sucks.jpg ← That is bad. --TalkRiddle 23:22, 23 January 2009 (UTC)
I like the new campaign buttons. But the icons still confuse me ~ KurdUser Kurd sig.png 23:27, 23 January 2009 (UTC)
Looks horrible, IMO. The old page was far better. Erasculio 23:29, 23 January 2009 (UTC)
I'm also not thrilled with the use of the profession icons (the tango icons work fine for general wiki purposes but not this), I prefer icons that actually come from within the game and that in some way relate to the content. The logo graphics are difficult to determine what they are referring to without enlarging them which rather spoils the intent. --Wyn's Talk page Wyn 23:41, 23 January 2009 (UTC)
I don't mind the blue background that Kurd added tbh. --User Pling sig.png Brains12 \ talk 00:11, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
I like the new boxes - but images are just out of place with the rest of the wiki. -- User indochine dsk tree.png Indochine talk 00:21, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
I guess we could discuss here if people want to change some elements, and then make a change, given how the (now old) layout wasn't eactly popular. IMO, the formatting of the main page deserves more discussion than the usual. Erasculio 00:45, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

Decoration

Are we having any main page/logo decoration for the Canthan New Year? --User Pling sig.png Brains12 \ talk 17:32, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

I don't think it's necessary for every 3 day weekend festival, Halloween and Wintersday each last more than a week. --Wyn's Talk page Wyn 18:04, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
Oh, it's just three days? Never mind then. --User Pling sig.png Brains12 \ talk 19:13, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

Help namespace, ask a question links

I reordered this section a bit, to try to encourage users to read some instructions before they click on the "Ask a question" links, and also to increase the chance people post on the correct question page (rather than wiki question all the time).
