    • Please... no colored backgrounds. We've been through this before. Nobody wants it. Just keep it black, yo. Black is the new black. It's also the old black. Time is funny.

      The grey is so much easier on the eyes.  Also calling Poe's Law on this.

    • Well, grey is not too far from black. The white-on-black hurt the eyes a little bit, me thinks.

    • Well, I've got used to white-on-black, but I guess grey isn't bad. However, I'm reaaally fond on the current wordmark

      We will change the wordmark, but in return we made Cleric pink. A fair deal.

    • But... but... my poor white on black! I've always loved that about this site. I was just telling someone the other day that I like to write on the site because of the white on black (and just ctrl+a / ctrl+c a lot for safety). I guess I'll have to find some other way. Change is scary!

      Change is scary sure, but you're on the Creepypasta wiki for scares... so, I don't see the issue.

      Monobook is still black and white.

      Also, what greater scare is there in life besides change?

      Two very different types of scary.

      Umby knows not of this monobook. *googling... googling... googling*

      EDIT: So I discovered monobook, changed my setting to monobook, went to creepypasta wiki and low and behold... IT'S DARK GREY! I have been lied to! Also, you can't view the wiki in monobook. But anyway... I'll figure something out. xD

      Go to Special:Preferences
      Change layout from Wikia to Monobook

      Edit: Just re-read your comment. I'm retarded

    • I perfer the previous background because I think it helps give off a more creepy mood, while gray just looks boring.

      You can change the Wikia skin for yourself using personal CSS.

      Go here and add this:

      #WikiaPageBackground {
          background-color: black;
      }

      Hard refresh, back to black, problem solved :)

    • I quite like the new colour scheme. I may fuck around with the wikia.css anyway just for fun though. It's good to see this place getting an update.

    • The links on the rights application pages are unreadable. The background on that page or the link colors need to be changed.

      Changed it to a darker grey.  #696969 is my favorite grey hex.

    • This new color reminds me of the Creepypasta website. Such a shame the two can only be told apart by size now. But the more I read, the more I realize that this is "easier on the eyes". Also, I think the grey/red contrast does makes important buttons stand out more than the black/grey. May thanks be bestowed to all for doing this.

    • I would like to change my colours to a puce green text on a hot pink background, but when I click the link it asks me if I want to create an article.

      Actually, I just want a darker grey background to fuck around and experiment with, but I cun't get to my css

    • Derp, you actually have to create the CSS. Just click create (you'll notice the unique aspect) and enter a code structured similar to Tom's and publish.

      Your css would be here: here. If that doesn't work, create a page titled: User:<insert name here>/wikia.css

      As much as I hate to say it, creepypasta dot com is so labyrinthine and unintuitive that I cannot navigate it easily.

      I was able to figure it out, but maybe that's just me.

      I think there should be an option to change the background color but, for those that like black just have that there too. Can't make anyone upset if the option is there s'all i'm saying.

    • If you want a different colour background try clicking here: here. If no page comes up click the create page: User:<insert name here>/wikia.css and then put in this code:

      1. WikiaPageBackground {
         background-color: black;
      

      }
