I appreciate all of the work you have done on this wiki and use it a lot so thanks. Any chance we could dial back the yellow parchment background? It's cool and all but makes it a bit harder to read the pages. 

Just my 2 cents I suppose.

The background is just part of the April Fool's Day edition of the wiki. It will be gone sometime in the next 24 hours. Until then, please enjoy the Forgotten Realms 3rd Edition wiki ;)

You had me doubting there for a minute :-)! But seriously, would you consider keeping the Realms font just for the article title? I kind of like it, and readability is not that much of an issue there as the article title is usually repeated in the first sentence.

Unfortunately, no, for at least two reasons. First, it is a 3rd-edition font and the FRW is dedicated to treating all editions equally, so we don't want to play favorites or give one edition more "presence" than another. Second, the font is likely owned by WotC and we can claim "Fair Use" for an April Fool's Day parody, but using the font all the time would likely infringe on their copyright.

I totally flipped when I saw the new layout! It totally caught be by surprise as April 1st had not reached the pacific time zone just yet.

While the broader joke is certainly amusing, I do actually like the overall layout and styling better than the default one. A shame it's only for the one day...

So the fact that we only accept 3e now is a joke, and not some more f___ed up bureaucracy on the side of admins?

With all due respect,

Yes, it is only a joke. In the US and several other countries, 1 April is a day for making jokes. See April Fools' Day.
