The New Wikia Look is part of an overhauled transition to a Web 2.0 similarity for Wikia. The new look has been internally developed by Wikia for quite some time, and has recently gone through both a private beta, a closed beta, and is now currently being implemented across wiki's before the finalization of the transition on November 4th.
The Old "Monaco" Skin
Come November 4th, the old "Monaco" skin will be removed from the Wikia network and this change will affect all wiki's on the network, including Sasukepedia. Seeing as how this skin will no longer be available, internal testing by Sasukepedia admins Scnoi1217 and Anshinritsumai have been working on a new color scheme for the "New Wikia Look" theme. Changes to Infoboxes, Navboxes, and other such templates have already been made, and only results tables remain to be changed.
The "New Wikia Look" Skin
The "New Look" is availble to all wikia users through their skin preferences. While not enabled by default, the decision to include it as an option is the first phase for the roll-out of Wikia's transition to the new look. Once the transition is finalized on November 4th, and all wiki's are forced to the new look; Sasukepedia will have transitioned almost seamlessly to the new look, with exceptions to results tables for the time being.
- The "New Wikia Look" is live for all visitors (logged-out).
