An ad change

Hi all. Wikia is about to enter a phase of experimenting with advertisements. Basically, we need to find out what combination of ads will work to allow Wikia to succeed. It's going to be a balancing act, and I know we are not going to be able to please everyone! But hopefully we can find the right combination. So, the first thing that we need is to add is a 300x250 box on the main page of several wikis. WoWWiki has had this for a while, Muppet is putting it in place this week as are a few others in this group. To make this look right, the main page will need adjusting to have a 300px fixed column - otherwise the ad will push the header down and look awful. I'm going to start a suggested layout at Main Page/temp2 so I can show you what's needed, please edit away and help get it ready! Thanks all, and as usual I'll be around here and on IRC for questions etc. -- sannse@fandom (talk) 17:01, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

On second thoughts, I'm going to need to get some help with Main Page/temp2... Wookieepedia's main page is so complicated :-/ -- sannse@fandom (talk) 18:37, 2 June 2008 (UTC)
OK! I think it's looking about right now! Please have a look :) -- sannse@fandom (talk) 19:27, 2 June 2008 (UTC)
  • What the F?!# happened to the main page?! It's frickin green! It looks horrible! Does this have anything to do with the changes? I hope this is just my computer, but I don't think so. Darth Shohet 18:10, June 20, 2008
  • Please tell me that the format will change- the pages are backwards, and its giving me headaches. I hope that this is only temporary. The old format was better, or at least more natural.
  • The google add on the right side of the main page totally screws up all the "Did you know" boxes on the right... it pushes them down too far. Freedon 02:04, 3 July 2008 (UTC)
Maybe it would work better with "Did you know" in the left column? -- sannse@fandom (talk) 08:31, 3 July 2008 (UTC)

@$#&*#! Can't we at least lose the penis enlarger ads? That... that is bad for morale!!! LOL, no seriously... "Surprise her with the size of your penis?" WTF? Drake Lothus

o_O there shouldn't be any of those. Please see the help wiki for details on how to report these to us -- sannse@fandom (talk) 10:11, 16 January 2009 (UTC)

Done. (Here are the links, for whoever is curious: http://img.adv.net/wim/728x90/728x90_1.gif and http://img.adv.net/wim/300x250/300x250.gif ) I sent the e-mail. Drake Lothus

Those damned ads and more of their kind are still there! Drake Lothus 14:13, 21 January 2009 (UTC)

  • Take it easy. Maybe you've got adware or something on your computer. Graestan(Talk) 16:44, 21 January 2009 (UTC)
yes, it looks like it's adware. There's more on this here (note that I have no idea how good or safe this help is, so take care!) -- sannse@fandom (talk) 12:02, 22 January 2009 (UTC)

Unfortunately I don't think it's adware. I'm currently using my cousin's PC, and those weird ads are still there. =/ Drake Lothus 19:02, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

  • That's enough. Wookieepedia is not responsible for Wikia ad choices. Go to the help wiki as sannse suggested, please, and do not continue to post here about it. Thank you. Graestan(Talk) 21:09, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

Redesigned page for Monobook

  • Hi, when the ad change came in (see above), the monobook page for me (hope it's not just me) seems to have an error. The heading section with the title and the amount of pages still has the width that the full page, which the usual page doesn't. Instead, it overlaps with the "in the news" section. Would someone please be able to fix this? (sorry if I didn't explain this too well- i can upload an image if needed) thanks, NighthawkLeader 06:40, 23 June 2008 (UTC)
    • Yeah, I have the same problem as Nighthawk. The "In the News" section is covering up half of the main header bar - not a huge problem but it looks a little messy. I had just thought it was my computer's problem, but if other people have that too... Aqua Unasi 15:29, 23 June 2008 (UTC)
  • Can one, or both of you, please post screen shots of what you are seeing? When I switch my skin to Monobook, I don't see the error as described. A screenshot might help. Thanks, Greyman(Talk) 15:33, 23 June 2008 (UTC)
    • Oh sorry, I'm actually on the Monaco skin, not Monobook like Nighthawk. I'll try to get a screenshot but it might be easier for Nighthawk to do it because I'm a bit pressed for time. Aqua Unasi 15:42, 23 June 2008 (UTC)
      • I may have fixed it... there was a "nowrap" in there, so the columns had to overlap when the width was reduced. Does it look right now? -- sannse@fandom (talk) 16:04, 23 June 2008 (UTC)
    • Yup, much better. Thanks Aqua Unasi 16:09, 23 June 2008 (UTC)
      • Everything looks good to me too now- thanks to everyone who worked on it :) NighthawkLeader 06:17, 24 June 2008 (UTC)
        • Yeah whatever you guys did by squeezing the header over allowed for normal placement of the News section. -- Riffsyphon1024 15:29, 25 June 2008 (UTC)
Cool, now all is sorted, it's time for the final stage. The page won't break when I turn on the second ad now... so here goes! -- sannse@fandom (talk) 18:17, 27 June 2008 (UTC)

Rounded Corners

What is the code to make the corners on the Main Page rounded? (Quote of the Day, Featured Article)

Battlefront III article needed

Why don't we have an article for BF III? Amazon.com has even listed Battlefront II once, even though they took it down to keep the project a secret... We have just as much proof of Battlefront III as we've had for KotOR III. --The Wolfe22 16:03, 19 July 2008 (UTC)

  • Well, considering we don't have a KoTOR III article... -- I need a name (Complain here) 20:08, 19 July 2008 (UTC)
    • Yes we do. It's right here.--The Wolfe22 01:14, 21 July 2008 (UTC)
      • By the way, I didn't mean to type "Battlefront II." (That was meant to be a three, in case you didn't know.)--The Wolfe22 01:15, 21 July 2008 (UTC)
  • The BFIII project was cancelled. The company that was manufacturing it was bought and the project cancelled. Happy editing! brightfur 01:38, January 13, 2011 (UTC)

Glitch

There is an annoying glitch on the Main Page. Normally when you type an article name, possibilties show up on a scroll bar, but now the Scroll bar is covered up.Da Securaster 19:19, 20 July 2008 (UTC)

Ads

The ads are messed up and covering up some of the Main Page and in some occasions: Coming of the Main Page. Can this please be fixed soon?

An Idea

I'm not entirely certain where to post this suggestion, and I'm not sure if it's even possible, but if it is, it would be very useful to have a feature that would let you view articles that fit into multiple categories. What I'm trying to say is, some way to view, for example, a male Human post-Ruusan Jedi, instead of being able to search only one category at a time. If there's any way to do that, it would make my life as a Star Wars nerd and fanficcer much, much easier. :) --Crazy Jedi Girl 20:49, 29 September 2008 (UTC)

Featured picture

I think it would be a good idea to have a "Featured picture" section on the Main Page. I've done-up an example of what a Featured picture section might look like... User:WHLfan/Main Page What do you think? WHLfan (talk to me!) 05:36, 4 October 2008 (UTC)

  • Featuring a picture on the front page is almost by definition not Fair Use. jSarek 06:00, 4 October 2008 (UTC)

QotD template error

Something's wrong with the Quote of the Day; it's showing the description of the quote and its source, rather than the quote itself (to clarify, the desc. where the quote would be, and the source where the desc. would be, with the source itself non-existent). Is this just my computer going nuts or can someone see it as well? Firebird 14:04, 7 October 2008 (UTC)

It reads...

"Admiral Niathal finally realizes the extent of Jacen Solo's madness"
―Revelation[src]

...when it should read...

"Great gods of the waters, is Solo insane?"
―Admiral Niathal finally realizes the extent of Jacen Solo's madness[src]

That better? Firebird 14:26, 7 October 2008 (UTC)

  • Ahh, I thought the wording was slightly strange. Also, when I look at it I don't even get the red link to source, it's just nothing. - Kingpin13Cantina Battle Ground 14:29, 7 October 2008 (UTC)
    • Fixed, but now the closing quote mark is in bold. -- I need a name (Complain here) 14:32, 7 October 2008 (UTC)
      • Actually, nevermind the bold bit. I unitalicised the question mark to fix it, since I don't think anyone will notice or care if that's unitalicised. -- I need a name (Complain here) 14:36, 7 October 2008 (UTC)

Featured article typo

the featured article about has a typo. "Only when she faced Qel-Droma, and he refused to fight back did, she finally understand her error and return to the light. "

should be: "Only when she faced Qel-Droma, and he refused to fight back, did she finally understand her error and return to the light. "

the comma is in the wrong place. I cannot fix it. can some who can do it

Strong mouse 02:17, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

  • Fixed. jSarek 03:16, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

Navigation bar error

On the navigation bar, if you go on to "Navigation" and then "Main page", this sents you to "http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Wookieepedia", which apparantly doesn't exist --Jinzler 21:34, 21 October 2008 (UTC)

  • That was odd. Try it now. JorrelWiki-shrinkableFraajic 23:31, 21 October 2008 (UTC)
    • It was a server bug that was affecting most of Wikia. They tell me that it has been resolved now, but I think there is still some caching as both myself, and obviously a few other users, are still experiencing the problem. I'll check back in on it within the coming day or so. Greyman(Talk) 23:34, 21 October 2008 (UTC)

Question From the Phineas and Ferb Wiki

Hello. The Phineas and Ferb Wiki has above image templates, like the one on this site, but you can't have 2 on the top of a page. I would like to ask how the "Eraicon" and "Eras" templates work, because I can't understand how to get to do so on the PF Wiki. Thanks. --SuperFlash101 00:30, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

Rules on the Main Page

Hey, how come the rules aren't linked on the mainpage? --User:Pirakafreak24

How Nice..

An EU article purge on April 1st, how nice. Ldude893 07:08, 1 April 2009 (UTC)

  • My thoughts exactly. Anyone else notice the, "Did You Know?", and the fact that Lucas NEVER said movies were only canon? The quote about him never reading the books? Lie. I read an interview where he discussed the Legacy of the Force series, and how he'd enjoyed reading them. Nice try, Wookieepedia. Not as funny as Kylepedia last year. TheNewDarthMalevlentIf they want war, we'll give 'em war! 13:40, 1 April 2009 (UTC)
I think the real missed opportunity was not proclaiming that Supershadow is indeed George Lucas' best friend and everything hes every written is true. Now there's an April Fool's Day joke to celebrate... Medleystudios72 14:10, 1 April 2009 (UTC)
Actually, its just a cleverly shorted version of this quote, which as far as I know, is real. "I don't read that stuff. I haven't read any of the novels. I don't know anything about that world. That's a different world than my world. But I do try to keep it consistent. The way I do it now is they have a Star Wars Encyclopedia. So if I come up with a name or something else, I look it up and see if it has already been used. When I said [other people] could make their own Star Wars stories, we decided that, like Star Trek, we would have two universes: My universe and then this other one. They try to make their universe as consistent with mine as possible, but obviously they get enthusiastic and want to go off in other directions."

―George Lucas, from an interview in Starlog #337[src] Well played, WP, well played.--Kierjan 23:42, 1 April 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, pretty obvious April Fools's day joke, but It still is going to freak out some people. The Boba Fettest 14:51, 1 April 2009 (UTC)

Yea, I prefer last years AT-AT's humping. I live in Hawaii so the time change through me off and at the time pissed me off. But I wouldn't be suprised if they (LFL, not WP) would have all canon changed and piss off the fans. Deanscotsmen022 17:42, 1 April 2009 (UTC)

  • On a side note would all EU material become FANON, and would all of us who contribue be banned for a while for submiting FANON. Just a thought. Deanscotsmen022 17:42, 1 April 2009 (UTC)

lol this is most definitely an April fools joke. if they did that id go mad. so would almost every other fan like me.Darth exeltonRepublic Emblem(talk) 18:50, 1 April 2009 (UTC)

  • Being as big of a Boba Fett fan as I am, I find it hilarious that the featured article is Boba Fett, and that at the end it says he was killed when he fell into The Sarlacc.. Very nice.. --The Wolfe22 19:00, 1 April 2009 (UTC)

Umm...

The April Fool's header is still up... Rodtheanimegod4ever 01:14, 2 April 2009 (UTC)

People Vs. George Lucas

Shouldn't someone make an article for The People Versus George Lucas? --The Wolfe22 23:24, 26 April 2009 (UTC)

  • Usually that's because of temporary server problems with Wikia. - Brandon Rhea Alliance Starbird (talk) 20:02, September 5, 2009 (UTC)

Awesome place you got here

Some of these articles are so comprehensive. I enjoyed reading Darth Vader and Palpatine. Really showed me a storyline I didn't know Star Wars had, and made me understand the series a bit more. Keep on editing and making this place awesome! Blake Talk·Edits 14:02, November 3, 2009 (UTC)

  • This is not a place to discuss Star Wars in general. Did you read the text at the top of this talk page. This space is for discussing the main page. --Xd1358 Talk 14:05, November 3, 2009 (UTC)
    • I am not discussing Star Wars, I am discussing the wiki. So back off please and read what people post before you throw rules at them. Blake Talk·Edits 14:09, November 3, 2009 (UTC)
      • Mumbles something about idiots* This isn't the place to discuss the wiki, either. This is the place to discuss the main page. Antonstaen 15:22, November 3, 2009 (UTC)
        • Yeah. --Xd1358 Talk 15:23, November 3, 2009 (UTC)
          • This also isn't the place to bandwagon attacks on our readers. Blake, thank you; we appreciate the sentiment, and will indeed continue our work to make this place awesome. Should you have any further comments, please feel free to leave them in the Senate Hall. :-) jSarek 15:36, November 3, 2009 (UTC)

Firefly Design Group

Hey, I've recently become involved with a group called Firefly, we are currently getting others to link to us and in turn link to them. I think Wookiepedia should link to us(Firefly) and we to you.

What the group is is a 3d modelling group making models for various people. Mainly with the intent of making models for game mods.

Past Tense

What is up with the past tense on this site? Every single article has it. For example the Human article states "Humans were the galaxy's most numerous and politically dominant sentient species with millions of major and minor colonies galaxywide." Since when did Humans and every other race die off in the Star Wars universe? SeaTerror 03:20, April 7, 2010 (UTC)

  • They may very well have. Star Wars is set "a long time ago." Everything in the SW universe has thus already happened, and we don't know what the GFFA would be in the present. Dr. Kermit(Complain.) 03:38, April 7, 2010 (UTC)
  • To quote from the Manual of Style...
All in-universe articles should be in past tense, per the quote above.
The reasons for this are twofold. Firstly, the articles on Wookieepedia are presented as historical recordings that have been pieced together from scraps of information left over from the Star Wars era. As such, all details pertaining to this history have not yet been uncovered, and more information may be added at a later date. Keeping articles written in past tense provides consistency and flavor. Secondly, the Star Wars universe takes place a long, long time ago, in the past (at least compared to the time the narrative is set in). Writing in-universe articles in past tense properly relates the timeline of that universe with our own perspective.
Despite this, do not include phrases like "his ultimate fate is unknown" or "what happened to the ship after that is a mystery."
Past tense also sounds more professional. Trak Nar Ramble on 03:42, April 7, 2010 (UTC)

You do realize that the full quote is "A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away..." right? It's speculation saying all races are dead. It would make sense to put it past tense if the quote was actually. "A long time ago in the Milky Way Galaxy..." or some other known galaxy. Although if we want to be technical the entire Star Wars universe contains more than one galaxy. SeaTerror 20:28, April 7, 2010 (UTC)

  • What does the fact that takes place in a far away galaxy have to do with it? Chack Jadson (Talk) 20:35, April 7, 2010 (UTC)
  • It's speculation that they're alive, too. "Always use past tense" is a stylistic convention, not a verdict on the state of the topic in question. We also use past tense in articles like planet, asteroid, and black hole, things that all clearly still exist in our universe. jSarek 21:01, April 7, 2010 (UTC)

Quote of the Day

Hey, guys (and girls). Is it possible to edit the quote of the day in the middle of the day? Are normal users even allowed to do that? I mean, I personally think today's quote should have been extended all the way to "You will try." If not, oh well. Please let me know. Thanks! X52495nos4a2 16:21, April 8, 2010 (UTC)

Question

I don't know where else to ask this question, here seemed like the best place. I heard last night on the radio that the six movies are coming out in 3d. I also heard (joyous bell begin ringing) THAT THEY'RE MAKING A NEW MOVIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! is all this true? (Please tell me it is)Gnost-Dural 16:01, September 30, 2010 (UTC)

Is Wookiepedia moving?

Hey, I'm sure some of you have seen Wikia's "New Look" and how it's going to mess up a lot of wikis. I was wondering if Wookiepedia was planning on moving. --Thesaurus Rex 06:18, October 17, 2010 (UTC)

No, there are no plans for Wookieepedia to move. Grunny (talk) 06:19, October 17, 2010 (UTC)
That said, nobody's particularly a fan of the new skin here. Most people just use Monobook to save any bother. NAYAYEN 12:37, October 17, 2010 (UTC)
I'm not gonna swear at all, even if I want to do that very, very, goddamn, much. Is there any way to restore old interface of Wookieepedia? At least for me? I mean... this new design is completely ridiculous. I can't find anything, I lost my orientation here. Please, guys. Loc - Speak!, 12:47, October 20, 2010 (UTC)
Monaco is dead (or soon to be), so you're out of luck there. Your other option is the favorite skin here, Monobook. Just set it in your preferences here. And as a general note to anyone who comes to this page to comment on the new skin and can't read the big text at the top of the page, please use the Senate Hall for those issues. There is a forum specifically about the new skin there too. NAYAYEN 13:05, October 20, 2010 (UTC)
Oh, thanks. What big text do you mean? I can't see that one. And about Monaco - I am still able to use it. Why does it have to disappear? It's a good skin if you ask me. Loc - Speak!, 13:09, October 20, 2010 (UTC)
It is too expensive to upkeep three major skins at the same time. (Monaco, Monobook and the new) Monobook is a very simple skin, which is why we can use it (not expensive to upkeep), but Monaco is way more complicated and expensive to upkeep. 1358 (Talk) 13:12, October 20, 2010 (UTC)
This big text at the top of the page. Monaco is going to be retired soon (today I think). Xd explained it neatly, but see the Wikia Staff blogs for more info on the skin change. NAYAYEN 13:16, October 20, 2010 (UTC)

Thumbs

I'm pretty sure someone's already working on this, but could someone please fix the thumbs? Wiki screwed them all up. Also the things at the bottom of the page are poorly done. Could someone fix the images or remove them entirely? Theyre not on the edit source so I'm assuming no, but the thumbnails need help!--The Great and Grand Count Mall! 03:33, December 16, 2010 (UTC)

Registration with Ads

I am a registered user. So why am I still getting a ad displayed on pages directly underneath the search box??Is there any way we can have the ad moved to very top or very bottom of the page? Thanks. Taliesin2 06:43, December 28, 2010 (UTC)

Erased

How come it seems like almost every time I edit something, it gets erased? Any idea on what I'm doing wrong?Cal Jedi 19:52, January 7, 2011 (UTC)

  • This is not the place to ask it. First, I advise you to take a look at your own talk page if there are any warnings; those might explain it. If not, your edits probably violated a Wookieepedia policy. 1358 (Talk) 19:56, January 7, 2011 (UTC)

To whom it may concern

To whom it may concern, I have "adopted" the Astromech Droid wiki. I feel that an important partnership in our early growth period (as in... right now) would be the partnership between Astropedia and Wookieepedia. i have extended a similar offer to the Star Wars fanon wiki. I would very much appreciate it if Wookieepedia and Astropedia became official partners. Thank you.Gnost-Dural| Hands off the holocrons, THEY'RE MINE!! 21:02, February 21, 2011 (UTC)

TURN OFF THE FRICKIN' 3D!!!!!

No really, you've made this site a headache to read. Cut the crap already!!!

totally! my eyes hurt, turn this effing thing off. TOUGH GET USED TO IT HAHAHAHA

How can I view it in 3D?

will 3D glasses work?

First of all song your posts. Second of al--Ah, my eyes!--How can we turn the 3D effect off? The red text with cyan shadow is blinding us. --NejiHyuga900 (talk | contributions) "I am the Thunder Dragon!" 04:02, April 1, 2011 (UTC)
    • If you have a later-gen computer monitor, the 3D effect should be automatic. If not, you have to get a pair of glasses. The best way to get them is to see a 3D movie but keep the glasses afterward. We're slowly working our way through the images on the site to convert them to 3D, but it will take some time to do them all. We're up to D. ~ SavageBob 04:09, April 1, 2011 (UTC)
    • Did you really need to have two April Fools "jokes" (and I use the term in the loosest manner possible)?
      • Please do not use loose language on this wiki. We attempt to maintain a certain level of etymological standards here.DD97Which bear is best? 05:22, April 1, 2011 (UTC)
      • Obviously, the unsigned contributor is not wearing 3D glasses and does not have a late-gen monitor.. ~ SavageBob 05:33, April 1, 2011 (UTC)
        • Just a small note for the desperate, but viewing the site in the old Monobook style removes the 3D effects...but why would you want to do that? IT'S AWESOME! This is our first step towards the technology of the Star Wars universe! JethLordMasterYing yang copy (Xia Order) 06:08, April 1, 2011 (UTC)
          • Actually monobook has it too, just make sure you purge your cache. (: –Tm_T (Talk) 06:11, April 1, 2011 (UTC)
            • Yeah, but the 3D is making the website really slow, so I would like to be able to disable it. And I mean SLOW. It's hard to edit and boring to wait around and annoying to be paying for a connection speed that I'm not getting because the 3D's making the website slow down.WIERDGREENMAN 09:31, April 1, 2011 (UTC)

If your goal was to drive people away from the site on April Fools, you've succeeded. Bri-Jay Waycay 10:53, April 1, 2011 (UTC)

  • Actually, our goal was only to drive away you. ~ SavageBob 14:46, April 1, 2011 (UTC)

  • Is it going to end after April 1st?—TK-999 Era-imp(Rise of the Empire) 13:06, April 1, 2011 (UTC)
    • Obviously this is a permanent change. ;-) 1358 (Talk) 13:08, April 1, 2011 (UTC)

some of us don't have the next gen of computer screen, or 3D glasses. i admit it's a cute idea but it's giving me a head ache, i would appreciate it if the 3D would be an OPTION not a 'have it or don't look' kinda thing. i can speak for many when i say until the change happens i won't be on here much, (my eyes!)

  • They said the same thing about SVGA monitors back in the 1990s, Arica. Sorry, but this is the FUTURE. ~ SavageBob 15:04, April 1, 2011 (UTC)
  • Lighten up, folks. It's just one day. You can survive. JMM 15:09, April 1, 2011 (UTC)

People, people... We have all been had. check that. YOU have all been had. I Slap Floor, comprende? If you dont, then have a look at your calendar and unscramble I Slap Floor.Gnost-Dural| Hands off the holocrons, THEY'RE MINE!! 16:00, April 1, 2011 (UTC)

  • Turn this shit off! We don't need it! 3D sucks, it's also making my computer glitchey. Only an asshole thinks it's cool! --AnyGuy 16:32, April 1, 2011 (UTC)
    • And there are only three people who use words like that: small children who know those words and use them when they dont get their own ways (such as on April Fool's Day, when mean pranks are pulled on them, hint hint), a control freak who loses control and has no other way to express that, or someone who simply likes ruining a perfectly good april fools day. PS: If you hadn't gotten it by now, this is simply an april fools joke. If it continues for more than a week, i may lose any amusement i ever held in it.Gnost-Dural| Hands off the holocrons, THEY'RE MINE!! 18:11, April 1, 2011 (UTC)
      • I know it's a joke, but it's not funny at all. Besides, in my opinion, wikis should be serious. And I'm not a little kid, I'm fourteen! --AnyGuy 18:49, April 1, 2011 (UTC)
        • If you really want to be labeled one of the other two things I listed (Control freak who has lost control and cannot express hisself/herself in a better way, or someone who enjoys ruining a perfectly good April Fool's Day) be my guest. Just remember: April Fool's day takes up 24 hours of a year that is 8,766 hours long... and you open a can of cusswords just for this special occasion. If you can't survive that long then get off for the rest of the day. Nobody's forcing you to browse this wiki. Oh, and fourteen does seem a little young to be using that... colorful of language. 'm just saying...Gnost-Dural| Hands off the holocrons, THEY'RE MINE!! 19:02, April 1, 2011 (UTC)
          • This is no joke. This will be how Wookieepedia will be like on its last four days of existence. I have the word of Leland Chee himself. Hanzo Hasashi 19:14, April 1, 2011 (UTC)
        • Christ you people and your nagging... I don't even edit here, but I know Wookieepedia always has the most pwnsome of AFD pranks, so I always stop by to see what's new. Heh, I stopped by this morning and fell to my knees in jealously lol. I can thank goodness I had my Arkham Asylum glasses handy. Note: my jealousy springs from my/our (wiki) inability to be creative apparently lol. The only people who should be complaining about this are the jaggoffs who either don't own a random pair of 3D glasses or can't jury rig a pair out of some transparencies and a Sharpie (duh). It's like Wookieepedia just entered hyperspace; i.e. you're going to go mad if you keep staring at it out the window :P Just bask in it's short-lived glory lol. --القراصنةهنتر (TalkContribs) 19:24, April 1, 2011 (UTC)
  • The word from the cabal is that this 3D effect was a compromise we had to make with LFL to continue the life of the Wiki. They sent us a cease and desist letter, claiming that we were violating their copyright and trademark. However, they agreed to allow us to continue functioning provided we promote the upcoming 3D releases of the films. This is our way of doing that. In short, if you don't like the 3D, blame George Lucas. ~ SavageBob 20:46, April 1, 2011 (UTC)

I think the most complaints come from not being able to turn the affect off. I mean, if there was a way for the User to turn it off (like by switching layouts) then it would be cool. Also, if there was a way to turn this into a separate Layout for those that would like to keep this Format after today, I think that would also be cool.Altyrell 20:09, April 1, 2011 (UTC)

you know, as "funny" as this is for some of you, it's not really that clever, or good, or a lot of things. telling those who say they dislike such jokes as this to deal with it, will only drive people away. as will first time visitors who are seeing this and have no understanding it isn't how the site normally looks. so, good job people :D --Mika Zarosia 22:35, April 1, 2011 (UTC)
  • For those who can't bear the final few hours of April 1st, following the instructions here to turn it (essentially) off until it gets removed sometime this evening/tomorrow. NAYAYEN—it appears to be a frammistat 22:39, April 1, 2011 (UTC)
  • For future reference, a good website April Fools joke is (1) funny and (2) easily dismissed so you can get on with normal site usage after the laugh. The "cease and desist" notice that lasted on the site all of 5 minutes failed rule (1), so good job pulling that one. I'll be kind and say they 3D thing is moderately funny, perhaps worth a half-chortle, but it fails rule (2). Monobook removes the "3D" effect, but not the still unpleasant color scheme --Sweetz 00:42, April 2, 2011 (UTC)
  • Don't be so... boring. This made me laugh, it was totally unexpected. OTT, but Star Wars should always push the limits a bit. ~ Chesha Neko 01:14, April 2, 2011 (UTC)
  • Lighten up and stop freaking out its funny and you guys are acting like babies!--ZTM1234 01:39, April 2, 2011 (UTC)
  • I get the joke, I get why people are moaning. Its not really bothering me, but April Fool's was technically over midday, and its defintely 3am on the 2nd April...even those in America are well past the time April Fool's ends, so it would be great to now end the 3D, its such an inconvenience to have to purchase 3D glasses just so my eyes don't strain trying to read.
