  1. As nom. S 17:56, 14 February 2007 (PST)
  2. Support. CSS is needed IMO. --Rainith 19:46, 14 February 2007 (PST)
  3. Support. CSS is a nifty tool to hide and move certain stuff on the navigation bars. --Gem (talk) 21:28, 14 February 2007 (PST)
  4. Support. 1. Any page can be turned into a javascript file that an external site can use by using action=raw. 2. I doubt many people will use xmlHttpRequest. As noted above, the pages are protected. The only pitfall I see is if user A tells user B to put so and so code on his JS page. -Smurf 21:48, 14 February 2007 (PST)
  5. Support, I like to hide the logo and remove useless bits of interface, handy for the editor. — Skuld 02:06, 15 February 2007 (PST)
  6. Okay. --Life Infusion 07:15, 15 February 2007 (PST)
  7. Rapta (talk|contribs) 15:26, 15 February 2007 (PST)
  8. LordBiro 04:02, 16 February 2007 (PST)
  9. Full support. Ale_Jrb (talk) 10:08, 16 February 2007 (PST)
  10. Sound good to me. Vlad 10:12, 16 February 2007 (PST)
  11. Strong support. --Dirigible 16:45, 16 February 2007 (PST)
  12. User Blastedt sig.jpgBLASTEDT 13:02, 3 March 2007 (EST)
  13. Support. --Bane of Worlds 13:45, 3 March 2007 (EST)
  14. Support. I use WikEd which makes editing much easier. This type of user code (JS) is currently supported at Guild Wiki and Wikipedia --Glamtre 11:59, 15 March 2007 (EDT)--


  1. No. We don't need javascripts. If we do, there should be approval of each and every one that is uploaded or some nasty scripts can get uploaded. Either implement with a detailed submission process, or have none at all. CSS is a nice idea. --Life Infusion 18:10, 14 February 2007 (PST)
    Comment: this is for the user only, it cannot harm the server side in any way, I suggest you read up on it at meta — Skuld 02:04, 15 February 2007 (PST)
  2. CSS I'd support, but please no JavaScript. I don't want to force every user of this site to enable JavaScript just to view the site, and IMO it probably wouldn't work with the in-game browser, so everything using JS would need to be re-written to work in-game.

    For what it's worth, like Life Infusion above, make sure you realise that this request is for user CSS and JS. This is code that registered users choose to use themselves, to make browsing the wiki easier. If I use some kind of javascript code, it only affects me, nobody else. It never even loads for other users. This does not affect the entire wiki. The only user that will need to enable JS is the person who has chosen to use some JS code on his account. Neither of your worries has really anything to do with this particular request. --Dirigible 17:29, 16 February 2007 (PST)
    Thanks for the clarification. I've wiped out my no vote. LordKestrel 14:59, 23 February 2007 (EST)


Just to clarify on this request. Site CSS and JS are already available. This request just permits the ability for user-specific CSS and JS - usually used for testing proposals for site CSS/JS, and/or for implementing user-specific tools that the user finds useful, but which may not be desired by the entire community. --- Barek (talkcontribs) - 10:20, 15 March 2007 (EDT)


As of today, these functions should be installed. If anyone encounters any bugs, please report them so we can check out the issues. --Emily Diehl 14:40, 22 March 2007 (EDT)

Wow - I completely missed this until now! Thanks Emily, that's great news! --- Barek (talkcontribs) - 21:32, 23 March 2007 (EDT)
