I was wondering if anybody would mind placing a sitenotice on the top in wikia skin. Its already present in the monobook skin (Here). The content would basically be the same as there, warnings about broken things and stuff....-- ~ UltimateSupreme 14:56, August 1, 2013 (UTC)

Dismiss option? ~SnapperTo 17:58, August 3, 2013 (UTC)
I'd really like one of those two, that notice is very irritating after a while. --Speysider Talk Page | My Image Uploads | Tabber Code | Channel 18:02, August 3, 2013 (UTC)
It would be possible but seeing that it was purposely removed from the monobook one, is that really needed?-- ~ UltimateSupreme 18:25, August 3, 2013 (UTC)
If it was purposefully removed, then a way to hide the notice should be made (like with the character infoboxes). Currently I'm using adblock to hide the notice (by blocking the .sitenotice class) --Speysider Talk Page | My Image Uploads | Tabber Code | Channel 18:28, August 3, 2013 (UTC)
I agree with Speysider, that notice is very irritating to see. Its pushing the pages down, and is a tremendous eyesore. Why not just update the Site Notice? It gives the users a notification, so they are immediately made aware of the update, and can check it immediately, and that way we don't have that huge eyesore at the top of every page. ~ Ten Tailed Fox Yamagakure Symbol 18:52, August 3, 2013 (UTC)
I agree with TTF --ROOT 19:16, August 3, 2013 (UTC)

By the Titans that is one fugly site notice. Like wow ha ha.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 19:18, August 3, 2013 (UTC)

And it is for this reason why we have never had a site notice explaining spoilers. Because holy hell that is aggravating.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 19:25, August 3, 2013 (UTC)
Fine, removed that one.-- ~ UltimateSupreme 06:15, August 4, 2013 (UTC)
I for one think the Spoiler site notice serves a good purpose. People who come to this site don't come via the home page. People search on google for character or jutsu names and go directly to the relevant page. Even if you google "Naruto" the homepage comes below the Naruto Uzumaki article. So leaving the "only warning" in the homepage is a bit pointless in my opinion.--Karunyan (talk) 06:33, August 4, 2013 (UTC)
If you can somehow put a "Dismiss" option in the notice, I think everyone would be OK with putting it up there.--Karunyan (talk) 06:37, August 4, 2013 (UTC)

Since the notice is mainly only meant for new users, it's understandable for the old users to be annoyed. You can remove it by placing this in your wikia.css:

.sitenotice {
	display: none;
if you really find it irritating which IMO it isn't, instead being an effective way of reaching the entire community.-- ~ UltimateSupreme 06:46, August 4, 2013 (UTC)
Why can't there just be a dismiss option? Editing your .css is all fine and well for users, but readers do not have that option. ~SnapperTo 05:19, August 5, 2013 (UTC)
Hence the problem with a site wide spoiler. If they had a dismiss button that everyone, readers and editors, could use, I would be fine with it. Just having it stuck there with no way to say "Okay I get it!" is whats irritating.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 09:33, August 5, 2013 (UTC)
What Snapper2 / TheUltimate3 said. You could easily have a dismiss option that retains its status by a cookie.
@Snapper2 / TheUltimate3 If you have an AdBlock extension installed on your browser, you can block the notice completely. On Chrome, the code is: Dunno about other browsers though. --Speysider Talk Page | My Image Uploads | Tabber Code | Channel 09:40, August 5, 2013 (UTC)
I could very easily block it. That however is not the intention. Having the notice there, if we must have it, is good. Not being able to close it after I've read it once is not. That's the reason why I didn't acknowledge UltimateSupreme's method of changing my wikia.css. Yeah it works but the problem is that I have to go into the code to change it.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 10:50, August 5, 2013 (UTC)

I agree :U the logo of this site needs some ediing. --Shockz0 (talk) 13:42, August 6, 2013 (UTC)

How's that dismiss option going? ~SnapperTo 06:11, August 12, 2013 (UTC)

Done. Whenever the sitenotice has to be displayed, change MediaWiki:Sitenotice id to any arbitrary number.-- ~ UltimateSupreme 18:03, August 13, 2013 (UTC)

Can we perhaps put the spoiler warning back up now?--Karunyan (talk) 01:44, August 15, 2013 (UTC)
