As I recently noticed, the 'hilites' for administrators and such don't really fit the theme; they're a little too bright to be comfortable for eyes on a light grey background, and the VSTF color is the worst offender, silver on light grey is nearly invisible. COD:A for reference. I propose the hilites be adjusted with darker colors to go easier on the eyes, and maybe make a small note that they'd be adjusted when the theme is changed about annually (which probably comes soon around anyway with the announcement of BO3, which hopefully doesn't make this proposal irrelevant). -- laagone (talk)  13:44, April 10, 2015 (UTC)


Have we ever changed them before? Capt. MillerTalk 13:50, April 10, 2015 (UTC)

There was a small time period when they were different (I recall sysop being pink) to fit a dark theme, but other than that, I don't think they've ever been changed even slightly. -- laagone (talk)  13:52, April 10, 2015 (UTC)
I'm not completely sure, but I don't think any major wikis have changed the colour to match the theme of their wiki. Have any other wikis actually changed the colour of the hilites? Capt. MillerTalk 13:56, April 10, 2015 (UTC)
I don't remember many others even using a hilite system. And regardless, I wouldn't go by what other wikis do or don't do. -- laagone (talk)  14:00, April 10, 2015 (UTC)
On Bandipedia we use the same hilite colour scheme as we do here. It works over there though as there's no colour clashes. IMO on here, we could do something with the fonts of the links instead of the colours of them. Failing that, just change the colour of the VSTF hilite, maybe to the same as Staff?

We should probably wait until we have a theme for BOIII up and running if we do change the hilite color. No point in changing it now only to change it again in a few months. Conqueror of all Zombies (talk) 15:06, April 10, 2015 (UTC)

I agree with CoaZ, and I also think that whether we have done it in the past is irrelevant. If it's too hard to see then it'll need to be changed. Joe Copp 20:11, April 10, 2015 (UTC)

Agreed; waiting for the theme to be changed would be better than altering the hilite colors. --Ultimate94ninja (talk) 21:32, April 15, 2015 (UTC)

i agree that we should change them, but we shouldnt wait till the bo3 theme is picked because we likely wont pick it until the end of the year when bo3 is released, like we did with aw.

Well as per prior discussions. We agreed that the theme would remain a white/bright one. Which means that the new theme will still have a similar base colour. For that reason I think we should change hilites sooner rather than later. 04:40, May 3, 2015 (UTC)
Well similar doesn't mean the same, so shouldn't we keep it as is then change when we update for BO3? Conqueror of all Zombies (talk) 02:11, July 3, 2015 (UTC)
Closed - No mock-ups given so nothing to move to vote. Issue may be talked about in next Wiki redesign. 15:40, August 3, 2015 (UTC)
