I could really not care less about aesthetics (although I admit it is ugly). But the Wikia header that suddenly showed up on every wikia has a major, crippling dysfunction.
If you get a notification from another wikia, and you have 4 or more read notifications from the wikia you are on, you can't navigate to the other wikia that you got the notification from.
So you have to go to a Wikia you haven't been on (probably through Google) and then click the unread notification in order to read it.
It used to be you just clicked the notification and you could get there right away.
Please allow wikis to opt out of this feature. Or at least patch up this particular bug.
