Official Discord server

As some of you may not know, most wikis have an associated Discord server, such as the ABXY Discord Server for Lylat Wiki and Shilver Star for WiKirby.

Do we want one? and if so, do we want it on ABXY or a standalone? Tacopill (talk) 17:07, 28 April 2020 (UTC)

Skin

What things would we want in a Skin? Here's the Color Pallet, I've been using for the templates.

I was thinking we could make it like an NES game? or SNES Game?

NES game since those are more recognizable to me, a person who has yet to play the Mega Man games. Results May Vary (talk) 14:57, 29 April 2020 (UTC)
Said this in chat already, but it would be good to eventually have different skins for each era as they can look and feel quite different.--Vellidragon (talk) 16:02, 29 April 2020 (UTC)
We could make different default skins and/or add more skins. As an example:
Skin Era
Monobook Classic
Vector X
Timeless Battle Network

On the current Timeless skin edit, I think the colours are quite boring and don't look much like Mega Man. I assume this was based on the navbox colours, but I honestly haven't been liking those either. It could stand to be less dry-looking, and the text background is also a little bit too dark. The header image is a cute idea, but it's cut off at the edges so that looks weird. The Museum version of the art doesn't crop any of the characters, so I don't know why the header looks like that, and it's also a bit strange that it cuts off at the bottom right before it gets to Mega Man himself.

Btw, the Wiki tables seem to look the same (boring grey) regardless of skin. I don't know if those are even skin-dependent, but I've been hoping they'd look nicer eventually.--Vellidragon (talk) 23:46, 7 October 2020 (UTC)

Been thinking about it and I think it could benefit a lot from having a darker colour for the site background and lighter colour for the text containers. I did rough mockup in Photoshop here. The mockup also uses a crop from the digitalised Museum artwork for the header; it's smaller, but it's not cut off on the sides and Mega Man's face would fit in the header. Thoughts?--Vellidragon (talk) 20:56, 8 October 2020 (UTC)
Thanks for the feedback on the skin so far, but just to be clear, it's not done yet. I so far have just put a couple of hours into it. The header photo was a placeholder to show Tacopill the design concept and I have yet to begin designing in-content sections as well. I'll keep your suggestions in mind as well.
