I switched back to the wikia old skin, pre the one they just removed just to get rid of the new layout. This REALLY old one though doesn't consider blogs when it gives you your "talk page, user page, etc" links. So I actually had to go searching for my blog. Lets see... No one likes the new forced look. No one cares about it. The one that was popular is gone so now its a choice between the orginal and new only. And most will no doubt switch to old when they realise they can. I think the wikia staff just sealed their doom.
Why bother changing it? It feels like "if its not broken, don't fix it" just took a whole new level of stupidity. The only problem with the oldest skin? Yellow background! Yuck!
