Way to alienate new visitors yo!! As if the URL issue wasn't bad enough. UNCYC FAIL. --THINKER 00:28, October 15, 2009 (UTC)

UNFAIL = SUCCESS --Click meNO NOT ME!! I don't care if you click me 00:48, October 15, 2009 (UTC)

Way to overreact. It's just for one day. No one is going to see the front page and say "My word, and I was just about to write 50 features. Guess I'll have to go to ED and blank some pages here instead." --Sir DJ ~ Irreverent Icons-flag-au Noobaward Wotm Unbooks mousepad GUN 00:50, October 15, 2009 (UTC)
URL change bad. Reskin good. Overreacting to minor changes to the front page bad. Chilling out good. - T.L.B. Baloon WotM, UotM, FPrize, AotM, ANotM, PLS, UN:HS, GUN 01:19, Oct 15
Agreed. Worst reskin ever. Now for a red herring! So I was balls deep in this midget last night... --Hotadmin4u69 [TALK] 01:23 Oct 15 2009
I have to disagree ~ Midget talkcontribs
Me too. EMC was not "balls deep" in midgets or anything else last night. Or ever. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 08:49, October 15, 2009 (UTC)
I actually think this reskin is pretty badass. Granted, I wasn't around back in the glory days of reskins, and this is actually the first one I've seen in practice, but I still think it's pretty flippin' cool. Also, MacMania wrote a fantastic article. —Unführer Guildy Ritter von Guildensternenstein 02:32, October 15, 2009 (UTC)
This is why we suddenly have so many brats here, adding Halo references to pages. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 05:00, October 15, 2009 (UTC)

Why in my days we used to play Doom or Nuke Nuke'em and make references to those games, before that it was the 2D Castle Wolfenstien on the Apple // series before it was remade into Wolfenstien 3D for MS-DOS and then later ID software made Doom and added in Wolfenstien 3D levels. I'm still waiting for the Duke Nuke'em Forever game and I heard it might be available for the Windows 9, Playstation 5, and XBox 4096 systems in about 10 years time tops. But this Halo of which you speak, is Microsoft's vain attempt at a Doom type game. Once you've played one you've played them all. Call of Duty 4, SOCOM Navy Seals, Half-Life, Counterstrike, Left 4 Dead, Halo, are basically the same game but with different weapons and backgrounds and enemies and uniforms, but all play the same way as Doom did before them all. Excuse me while I crank up my Atari 2600 system and play Berserk, one of the original shooter type games that most other games got based upon. P.S. Get off my lawn you young punks! In my days when we played video games we didn't have cheat codes and downloadable content to help us out in video games, and we liked it that way. :) --Lt.

Which leads me to a critical question: where's my Portal sequel?!

Yeah its just for a day, except we had Modus's odd picture guy a couple days prior (slow day at the old VFH?), and the reskin doesn't look anything like the typical frontpage. Reskins are alright (not great, but tolerable) if they maintain the same structure properties (how many times has Wikipedia reskinned like this?!). And yes, you all can enjoy it as regular users, understand that an unfamiliar new user takes one look at this and says "what the fuck is this weird shit? Oh well, off to Facebook." That could've been me even, and then we wouldn't have any good articles around this place at all. Think about it people. --THINKER 09:41, October 15, 2009 (UTC)

Rabbit pancake

I rest my case, your honor.

There was this one time, when we reskinned for Talk like a Pirate Day, that I, as a n00b said, "Oh, sweet! This is awesome!" Therefore, here is a picture of a rabbit with a pancake on his head.--<<Bradmonogram.png>> 14:21, October 15, 2009 (UTC)

Just like we know what "frickin'" really means, so do we know what "reskin" really means, and I'm tired of it. From now on, please use a more respectful term like Native American. Thank you. I now return control of your screen to the rabbit with the pancake on its head. --71.130.198.81 18:56, October 15, 2009 (UTC)
What are you doing Dave? Who is Dave? Know one even knows anyone called Dave. More reskins = more people knowing who Dave is. Simple. MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 21:33, Oct 15
