Adding in game terms like "player" and "player hunter" could be good, along with an entry for rolls and pregame.

I'd almost suggest spinning Endgame off into its own page (or having an extra page for it too, a la rolls). A few reasons for this: 1. it might be useful to discuss the changing mechanics that come with Endgame, 2. it might be worth cataloging the exceptions (Endgame is usually but not always four--V4 and sorta V2 had five), 3. it could be worth listing Endgamers somewhere (something that was suggested during the slimming of the old MVP page but never implemented largely 'cause nobody got around to it).

Part of the reason I'd like a terms page is so we wouldn't have to have so many individual pages like that one floating around (or we could at least add a link to the Game Mechanics category on the front page), but having Endgame in its own spot could be good. I think we should also update the "Vital Information" section so that it's up to date and not an in-character thing from Danya Sr. circa V2.

Quick PSA for those of you who might like to upload images to the wiki: lately Wikia has been having tantrums and giving me a "file type identification error" when attempting to upload .png images so if you're going to try and put a picture on there save it as .jpg instead.

If you're browsing the wiki and the color scheme suddenly changes, don't panic. I just found the theme manager in the admin dashboard and will probably be periodically messing around with it.

Feedback on how the current theme looks, how easy it is to read on, etc. would be appreciated.

Fantastic as I thought I was losing my mind when things started changing on me (been all over the wiki this morning).

I like the new theme, but I'm partial to darker backgrounds with lighter text, myself. :D

Okay, I've settled on two darker skins to try out. As far as I can tell, there's no option to allow users to customize which skin they use so there can only be one standard skin for the whole of the wiki.

Here are samples of the skins I've decided to try. The top one is current skin. The main downside to skins with darker backgrounds that I've found is that source code highlighting doesn't show up as well in the editor, but once a base skin is settled on, the exact colors can be fiddled with.

There's also an option to upload pictures for custom backgrounds, but I haven't messed with that any. If you have some kind of image that you really, really want to try as a background on the wiki, put it in here or something. (Joke/meme/whatever submissions will be ignored, Kermit.)

#2 is easier on the eyes, imo! They both look alright though.

That bottom one is a nostalgia blast for the old site theme. I love it.

Switched to Skin #2 to test drive that for a bit since all the responses I got were in favor of it over #1. Let me know what you think.

So in a bit of a surprising development for me, I've been working on some wiki stuff tonight and I've been getting absolutely destroyed with eyestrain - I'm thinking it might be the classic blue site background. Which sucks because I like it.

Anyone else having this issue?

I haven't personally noticed that, but I haven't spent an extended time on the wiki at once since changing the skin. I could potentially up the contrast between the background and the text, or mute the background shade if it's the problem.

Give it a few days - might just be because I can't stop staring at computer screens all day and all night. See if anyone else is thinkin' it.
