Nostalgia is a MediaWiki skin that has been introduced
before 1.3, when
MonoBook became the default. It is available for use in Wikipedia and
other Wikimedia sites for registered users. It is the skin that I like
best, but I think it is in need of some improvement.
The skin appears to have some usability problems that other skins don't
have: you cannot easily find your user pages when using Nostalgia, and
there is no easy link for uploads apart from a drop down menu which is
Nostalgia roughly replicates the pre-MediaWiki interface of Wikipedia.
It's not really meant for usability. ;)
I would like to know whether there is any interest
users/developers about Nostalgia (or whether I am the only one using
it!), and if so what you would like to see in an improved more modern
version of Nostalgia (with the same general looks, but not putting the
user in a disadvamtaged position from a usability standpoint comprared
to the other skins, particularly the default one). What would you think
can be considered wrong with the current Nostalgia, and how would you
like it to be?
PS: I have put a quick patch (15868) on bugzilla to include user pages
Doesn't sound terribly disruptive. Note that preferences and watchlist
are already available through the special pages dropdown, though.
Of course as the number of special pages has increased dramatically
since 2002, that drop-down has become rather unwieldy. I'm not sure
what's the best way to extend or replace this without dramatically
changing the layout.
