I'm a bit wary of skin-related conversations because I know it's a touchy topic what with past problems, but how many of you guys use Vector? I've had it as my default skin for some months now and actually prefer it to the classic Monobook. I guess the main thing is having the search box at the top of the page, but I also like how it's synchronous with Wikipedia. -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 12:55, 24 Yoon 2011 (UTC)

Well I only carry dollar bills so I'm not a fan of it.... BECAUSE I'M AFRAID OF CHANGE! Haha! No, but seriously, I'm afraid of change so I'm not a fan of it. If you were to put it in place, I would get used to it anyway. --T3 18:15, 24 Yoon 2011 (UTC)
In Britain we have up to and including £2 coins, whilst only £5, £10 and £20 are in paper form. Still thinking of coming to England? :P -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 18:23, 24 Yoon 2011 (UTC)
I prefer Monobook to Vector because A: I've already made a CSS for petaQ'a'pedia and I don't want to redo it for Vector and B: I've gotten so used to using Monobook that making Vector default would be hard for me to do (no dirty pun intended btw). Sorry. Changing the subject, do I need a new sig? ~[thehappyspaceman] Dan the HedgehogThe Happy infodiscussioncontributionsenter the contest NOW!!!WTF?!

I use vector, it's sexy, modern, and sugar-free--Ben Blade 20:26, 24 Yoon 2011 (UTC)
Wow, what a diabetes faggot. —rms talk 22:33, 24 Yoon 2011 (UTC)

OK I'll try vector for a bit. I have long thought though that Monobook was not broken and therefore did not need to be fixed. --Nerd42 21:15, 24 Yoon 2011 (UTC)

I just switched and am preventing myself from switching back to monobook, which I will be able to do in time. I suppose it's alright, I'm not used to the placement of the edit and history buttons, though.

One thing that I've noticed is that the little banana stars for the past two years of features are a bit off, 2010 high (into the search bar area) and 2011 a little low (over the title underline). I might be the only one having these problems because of some fishy settings, I dunno. If anyone else is, though, I suggest we fix it pronto, and get the star to fit right in the little title space. I don't think that should be hard.

Other than that, though. Cheery do-da. I still prefer monobook (in the forum look, specifically, and the general feel), but my taste will adjust soon enough. —rms talk 22:42, 24 Yoon 2011 (UTC)
I'm at the point where I don't even notice which one I'm using anymore, something about randomly swapping between them on three wikis as a result of... well, I don't even know. But generally vector and monobook are both nice... and they are also both pretty silly in their own ways. I'm actually using the vector currently here and on Uncyclopedia but monobook on wikipedia, if you want backwards. ~ Pointy.png 04:26, 25 Yoon 2011
I don't mind Monobook at all, it's just I've got used to using Vector now. Dunno, just started using it on Wikipedia and somehow preferred it to the classic. Both knock Monaco into a cocked hat, by the way. And don't even get me started on Oasis... -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 11:52, 25 Yoon 2011 (UTC)
The Oasis skin? Should be called 'Wonderwall'--Ben Blade 12:28, 25 Yoon 2011 (UTC)
In there before you matey :P -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 12:09, 26 Yoon 2011 (UTC)
I didn't k'noe-l' that you'd made that joke--Ben Blade 12:42, 26 Yoon 2011 (UTC)

I just tried styling uncyclopedia's oasis skin to be all pink and flowery and it... it wouldn't let me! the thing won't even let me set a proper background property! It's awful! *flails* ~ Pointy.png 12:18, 26 Yoon 2011

You won't get any argument from me on that. ~[thehappyspaceman] Dan the HedgehogThe Happy infodiscussioncontributionsWTFacronyms?! tlhPoodleC.A.T.G.W.CheesesSnakesRedirectUnMDHT:G.Y.F.T.G.T.F.A.F.Y. 16:32, 1 Jumbly 2011 (UTC)
I actually did get it to work. How'd I do? ~ Pointy.png 04:32, 2 Jumbly 2011
It's wonderful. It actually is. Congratulations, you have done some very nice work. —rms talk 04:46, 2 Jumbly 2011 (UTC)
Thank you so much. You don't know what that means to me. ~ Pointy.png 16:54, 2 Jumbly 2011
Wow, that knocks the pink frilly socks off anything Wikia could produce. Any animosity I have towards the Oasis skin is simply dissolved by the mellowness. -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 15:20, 7 Ditzimber 2011 (UTC)
