Hello, I'm here just to talk about the IW look that has been given to the wiki recently. Whilst it's pretty much fine...some things are rather annoying. The yellow, although suitable, makes some things impossible to read as it's white on yellow. AFD for example, or the options at the top. It's mostly that, and if I had to nit-pick, I suppose I could talk about the grey square that appears on the sides of the upper part (beside the logo and beside the contribute button) which kind of undermines the look. Can the changes be made or will it stay like that?  QVw9GKe.pngTimelessPeople  14:43, November 19, 2016 (UTC)


Since I really don't understand how to create aesthetics, you could tell me why it's not possible. But if it is, could someone take out the squares and maybe turn some of the text colour into black? Thanks for reading.  QVw9GKe.pngTimelessPeople  14:43, November 19, 2016 (UTC)

I think the white on yellow should definitely be changed, and I think some of the yellows are a little too bright. Some other colors also contrast with it too much, admin/bcrat highlights and redlinks for example. The theme doesn't look pleasing to the eye. -- laagone (talk)  14:58, November 19, 2016 (UTC)

Perhaps a darker, less vibrant tone of yellow? Personal Didikins Shrek Onions Didikins · Talk 01:22, November 22, 2016 (UTC)

Gordon Bennett.. Right. Instead of just saying what types, Please provide some hex codes. A lot of the issues could be solved with that. We had the idea of using gold as the primary yellow, However the issue was that Staff use it as their link colour. The White on White is an issue from my editing software of the logo. I was having slight issues actually getting it underlined. Twig (Talk) wNJ2zkL.png 03:13, November 22, 2016 (UTC)

i think some other button colors need to be changed too. for example, the edit button is dark grey and the text on it is black, as is the drop-down arrow button next to the edit button. this is fixed when hovering over either, since the buttons change to yellow, but when not hovering over it and it being black-on-dark-grey... well, its a bit annoying. also, we really need to update the notification card that pops up in the bottom right corner; it still has an atlas theme to it. perhaps we could use the image of calen thies, or the one of captain reyes, talking on the monitor from the teasers for infinite warfare. anyway though, while im here id also like to say thank you to whoever changed the theme, other than what was mentioned by me, scarlettwig, and others here, it looks pretty good.

Another problem I found is that the article background makes text look almost invisible in recent:changes if the edit description was of the generic -->[categoryname] kind. An example of this taking effect can be seen in the revision history of the top of the AK-47 revision history page where Sam's bot edited the video section of the article (and yes, it does say videos there). If anything needs to be changed, it has to be the background. You shouldn't need to highlight the section name to see what section was edited.
