Nominations

Skin Example License Summary
Cavendish (MozillaWiki) <ratings:scale category="Extension Survey/Skin Nomination" title="MozillaWiki" /> [1] GPL [2] Very clean centered fixed width layout.
OpenOffice <ratings:scale category="Extension Survey/Skin Nomination" title="OpenOffice" /> [3] Unknown ...
WikiGoes <ratings:scale category="Extension Survey/Skin Nomination" title="WikiGoes" /> [4] Unknown ...
openSUSE <ratings:scale category="Extension Survey/Skin Nomination" title="openSUSE" /> [5] Unknown ...
Tango <ratings:scale category="Extension Survey/Skin Nomination" title="Tango" /> [6] [7] Unknown ...
wikiHow <ratings:scale category="Extension Survey/Skin Nomination" title="wikiHow" /> [8] [9] Unknown ...
RoundedSassyBig <ratings:scale category="Extension Survey/Skin Nomination" title="RoundedSassyBig" /> [10] Unknown ...
Clean <ratings:scale category="Extension Survey/Skin Nomination" title="Clean" /> [11] Unknown ...
Modern <ratings:scale category="Extension Survey/Skin Nomination" title="Modern" /> [12] GPL Skin readily available in MediaWiki. Attempts to be slicker than MonoBook.
Azure <ratings:scale category="Extension Survey/Skin Nomination" title="TMBW" /> [13] Proprietary Clean but colorful fixed-width layout. More prominent navigation tabs, some of which use JavaScript.
AboutUs <ratings:scale category="Extension Survey/Skin Nomination" title="AboutUs" /> [14] Unknown (probably not reusable) One of the more innovative skins, with many new user interaction mechanisms. Somewhat chaotic though. Note that the site is almost entirely Ruby On Rails currently, and is no longer technically MediaWiki.
Creative Commons <ratings:scale category="Extension Survey/Skin Nomination" title="CreativeCommons" /> [15] Unsure, but likely to be free for obvious reasons Not super creative, but is clean and meshes well with the non-wiki site.
Wordpress Codex <ratings:scale category="Extension Survey/Skin Nomination" title="WordpressCodex" /> [16] Unknown ...
AdobeLabs <ratings:scale category="Extension Survey/Skin Nomination" title="AdobeLabs" /> [17] Unknown ...
OrganicDesign <ratings:scale category="Extension Survey/Skin Nomination" title="OrganicDesign" /> [18] Unknown Rounded corners. Economically use of space – wiki logo is moved next to to the right of the page title and the user menu is moved to where the Monobook logo would have been. Registered users have the opinion to upload a "user photo".
WikiGender <ratings:scale category="Extension Survey/Skin Nomination" title="WikiGender" /> [19] Unknown Improved navigation, especially in menus and search box. Fixed width choice hampers readability.
