In 2010, Wikia introduced and made mandatory the unpopular Oasis skin (later renamed just "wikia"), which was one of the many reasons for Grand Theft Wiki moving away from Wikia and becoming self hosted again. Upon leaving Wikia, Grand Theft Wiki used the Vector skin, which is also used on Wikipedia.

Users of Grand Theft Wiki can select which skin to use in their Preferences, although only the Vector skin is actively maintained and supported.
