I've finished a basic mafBlack custom css for monobook to get an idea of what would work for the actual mafblack wiki skin I'm working on. It needs tweaking and I'd really appreciate if anyone how is willing to to apply it (see OP, it takes no other skills than copy/pasting one code block) and suggest changes/find mistakes etc. Or you can just use it for your own satisfaction.

Here's an example picture to tempt all of you to hop aboard this project. Sorry for the bad quality.

No probaly not, I've been skimming around trying to make small fixes as to stop problems like this. One problem I saw was the tables of templates ect. looking horrible so I fixed that.

However this is just a custom css, I would be able to do a lot more with custom php/js code in an actual skin. Only problem I'm facing at the moment is some templates loading the default white text onto white background occasionaly due to odd markup.

The big problem is people not adding color:black to their special styles which causes occasional conflicts with white text on a light background. In this case I saw the same happened with your page but I fixed it by adding "color:black" which has no visable effect on other skins.

That's fine (may not look good with black/grey) however I set the body text to white so I it was contrasting very little with the green.

An updated logo might help, too.

I threw this together in about ten minutes:

It could be better with more time invested/knowledge of the actual font in the MS logo/someone to tell me what sucks and what doesn't.

yes, I agree with that. If anyone wants to make one for me if you enjoy making stuff like that feel free, I'll have a few examples and I'll let you lot choose one if not.

If someone (I'm a terrible graphic editor) could quickly change the logo from "mafiascum" to "mafiawiki"

Thanks for offering, I'm first going to get a basic version setup (meaning I'm going to not go mad over how it looks just making it cover all the functions) and then I'll see if chamber could put it up on the wiki. From then on I will work on how it looks and fill in anything I missed. If all goes well this fist version should be complete in a few days.

I actually prefer to use vector when I'm not testing things. :3

Feel free to shoot me a pm with details whenever your mockup is ready.

The basic skeleton is done so I've started on asthetics as what I've got so far is rather plain and in some areas ugly. I've also started fixing some of the default css which causes some horendous tables to be generated (whte borders black text on grey etc.) in the wiki's special pages and log in pages. Due to our wiki being behind I'm going to wait for the wiki to update to 1.24 before contacting chamber to get it up however if you want to help hunt for problems or suggest ideas (If you really want I can give you access to the ftp server if you help enough and have experience with it so you can improve stuff yourself. I'm auto-backing up everything so if you screw it up I can announce you're a jerk and just reroll.)

PF, this thread is about the wiki skin - you probably want the other mafblack thread.

I changed the setups section yet again, instead of bars there are now navigation menu's that look a lot better. The setups info box is also now better looking. Any comments?

The fact that you can expand/collapse it is nice, but I dislike the visual style more now than the one you had. Neither of them were very good looking in my opinion.

Anyone feel free to suggest another color scheme or whatever. Anyway, I've made a template (called Template:SetupHistory) that allows people to dump any setup history data into one page (with the needed information) and it will automatically display the correct history data for a setup if the template is linked to the setup page. This is great for adding large amounts of history data to many setups at once as it saves you from manually editing each individual page.
Using this I'm going to update the history data of all non open games.

I've also added an easy to setup faction win statistics calculator that displays the Town-Win/Mafia-Win/3rd-Party-win/Abandoned-Games percentages of each setup. It's hooked up to the history database template so it allows me to quickly generate statistics for setups with their history stored in that template.
Due to Mediawiki's limitations it isn't automatic (you need to regenerate the template to get up to date stats, look at template:SetupHistory to understand.) however it's still a heck of a lot faster than manually calculating everything. With this I'll continue updating missing history data of micro games and add some stats to some. (Interestingly Vengeful Mafia has a 57% mafia win rate, that's pretty high.)

Still waiting for some wiki sysOp to respond here, then the main page (Now out of date) can be updated.
