Here is what the main page looks like to unregistered users: [1]

  1. It should be possible to dismiss the first message asking users to register.
  2. The second message (the green one) should be deleted entirely.
  3. Why isn't the default theme MonoBook? Most people are more familiar with the way Wikipedia looks, and (though it's just my opinion) MonoBook looks better.

I think the green box mentioned at point 2 should be removed. It repeats with the use of the message above it. XDRAGONAITE +Saradomin's Book of Wisdom 13:15, 13 August 2008 (UTC)
I personally use Monobook in "My Preferences" and choose to override what admins use for all wikis that I visit. In my opinion, Monobook has the cleanest look compared to all the skins available. Unfortunately, there is no way of default-ing Monobook, as only Monaco (and its sub-skins) can be used as the default skin for any particular wiki.   az talk   13:20, 13 August 2008 (UTC)
The first message is in MediaWiki:Anonnotice; IPs can never dismiss messages. Those green messages are MediaWiki messages (e.g. (MediaWiki:ue-VisitN9). And Monaco is the default skin now; you can still view the wiki in Monobook by selecting it in your preferences.--Richard 16:44, 13 August 2008 (UTC)
I like Monobook too but I can't find a way to change it. i did hear there was something you could change but I dunno. Anyway, there should not be 2 points. I'll remove one but we want to encourage new editors so I'll leave the other. Cheers, Chicken7 >talk 06:02, 14 August 2008 (UTC)
Which one shall I remove. One is quite detailed and the other is just short and simple. And now that I think about it, we should probably make it dismissable if possible. Chicken7 >talk 06:05, 14 August 2008 (UTC)
I like short and simple better. --Rollback crown Spencer (Talk | Edits | Contribs) 06:08, 14 August 2008 (UTC)
OK I'll get some more opinions. Chicken7 >talk 10:22, 14 August 2008 (UTC)

I've just changed MediaWiki:Anonnotice to make it much simpler. There's no need for the spoiler message in there; just link to the spoiler policy in Template:Maintop if you really need to.--Richard 16:57, 14 August 2008 (UTC)
