The newest skin 'dusk' I find very nice, but I saw that the screen is far too small in width when I was working on [[J.R.R. Tolkien's Family Tree]]. So, making it a bit bigger might be a clever thing to do.
+
Moreover, on the [[Main Page]] there are references to links on the left (which is fine with the regular skins), whereas all the links in the dusk skin are on the right!

:Hehe, ya that skin wasn't designed by me, I just uploaded it testing the different skins. Dusk really isn't made for a wiki our size and is meant for more of a blog style with small amounts of text. I really need to get a decent skinned created because this default one we are using is just too bland, I'd really love to see something that fully integrates with the Tolkien theme. Unfortunately my CSS/PHP/creativity skills are lacking so it's easier said than done. Unfortunately the skin is made to fit a fixed size thus expanding it would ruin the whole header image there, yet another aspect of that skin I dislike. The wiki skins definitely needs to be something that expands with the browser and resolution to provide maximum viewing for those larger monitors. But it is a good example of how powerful CSS/PHP can be with the wiki software and we can really twist this site into anything we want. --[[User:Hyarion|Hyarion]] 11:26, 8 February 2006 (EST)
