Themes

Apex

A responsive skin.

Cologne Blue

One of the default MediaWiki themes, and was the first MediaWiki skin. Not very pretty but recommended if you're using a really old browser (IE6 or older) or are on a slow connection.

Nostalgia

An skin based on UseModWiki, and is one of the very first MediaWiki skins. Not very pretty but recommended if you're using a really old browser (IE6 or older) or are on a slow connection.

Monaco Redux

A theme that was originally used on Wikia (now known as "Fandom") from 2008 - 2010. It has been modified for use on the Computernewb Wiki, and has been modified to work on MediaWiki 1.34 and up.

MonoBook

Another one of the default MediaWiki themes. Works fairly well on most browsers, new and old.

Minerva Neue

A theme only available on mobile phones, this and Refreshed are the only themes available on mobile unless you choose to use the Desktop view.

Refreshed

A theme created by the Brickimedia admins, this theme is good if you want a more modern view or if you want another theme for mobile.

Timeless

A theme that emphasizes both content and editing tools, with multiple view modes for showing everything. Recommended if you have a big monitor.

Vector

Another one of the default MediaWiki themes, its the default theme for this wiki and is what most people probably use. Recommended on desktop since its guaranteed to work with all extensions on this wiki, not recommended for tablets/mobile phones.
