I was wondering if there was a way to display the Monobook skin by default to all users who view the Wiki. Sam2011 (Talk) 15:33, December 22, 2011 (UTC)

No, unfortunately Wikia does not allow that as it removes advertising space on the wiki--Category:Acer4666 15:39, December 22, 2011 (UTC)

I'm necro'ing this thread, because I believe that things have changed since it was answered. Monobook does have advertising in it. Maybe it didn't in Dec 2011, but it does in Nov 2012.

So, that being the case, is there a way to make our Wiki display only in Monobook to all Users and people that have not created an account and/or Signed in?

Regardless of whether or not Monobook has ads, the answer would remain the same. Wikia intends the oasis skin to be the default skin and to give all wikis a consistent interface. Wikia does not officially support Monobook and doesn't really develop new features for it. Individual editors signed in are allowed to choose the Monobook in their preferences, but to set Monobook as the default skin for all users on a wiki is not allowed. If you'd like to ask staff to clarify, feel free to send them a message via Special:Contact, but I'm fairly certain they'll also say no. 20px_Rin_Tohsaka_Avatar.png Mathmagician ƒ(♫) 08:04 UTC, Saturday, 17 November 2012
