Here's another little update on what's going on at The Vault and Wikia lately, including today's skin change across all Wikia.

The Vault is Wikia's #1 wiki!
Yesterday, on the New Vegas release day, The Vault had the unprecedented number of 2.7 million daily page views (as well as 164,000 unique visitors and 193,000 visits), which makes it, at least for now, Wikia's most popular wiki (beating WoWWiki at 2.3).
Just a reminder - remember to use our handy article preload templates when adding new articles about Fallout: New Vegas. This saves the admins a lot of time spent on improving these pages, as it automatically includes all the necessary categories, templates and layouts.
Today, Wikia is moving to the next stage of the roll-out of its new skin. The first step is to switch everyone using Monaco to the new look. If you want to use Monaco for a bit longer, you can change back again via your preferences until November 3rd, when the option to use it will be removed. The Monobook skin, however, will remain as an option for registered users even after Monaco's removal.
After this, Wikia will begin a gradual roll-out of the default setting, with wikis being converted in groups over the coming days. Once this stage is complete, all logged out visitors will see the new look when they visit Wikia.
