Description Chad H. 2009-03-06 19:57:41 UTC
The skin system is batshit and needlessly confusing. Classes can subclass Skin, SkinTemplate or Monobook, making different forks of page structure. The skin system is not inviting for users, who instead use Monobook with a bunch of common CSS. There needs to be one unified process for skinning that is simple to understand and use.
