I'd like to point everyone in the direction of this talk page to see if they can assist in any way to this endeavour of applying some damn fine changes to the wiki. It would really give our site a nice look of our own if we were able to change background colors and the like. Now I dont know the first thing about this but aparently we would need to modify the "wikis.css file" (whatever that means!). If there is anyone who knows how to go about this, or knows someone that's hip to this process drop a line here and give us a helping hand. Cheers!

Johnny, an example of modified css (cascading style sheets) can be seen over at e.g. the WoW wiki. You can edit the .css files for both the entire wiki (common.css) or individual skins (MonoBook.css etc.) to make your wiki look and operate differently. And like mentioned, I don't understand the scripting language so I can only dream ; ) Oh and for laughs here's Wikipedia's common.css file rather mind boggling :p
