Not sure if everyone is aware, but Wikia is testing a new "look" or skin for their wikis. I don't have any problem with it in general. Debuting a new look is natural with most websites over time.
However, the idiotic part is that they have announced that in November they will completely disable the ability to use previous skins for your wiki. This is a complete and total load of crap. The only reason for it is MONEY. They must think that the new look will ultimately make them more money on advertising, hence the "forced" switch. It seems retarded to me that you would want to make the 2nd most popular wiki site that much different than Wikipedia, which will continue to be the standard.
So, in summary. Forcing the new look is DUMB and completely disrespectful to the longtime users of wikia who have made it what it is today.
