  • I used no plugins except the basic ones that come with Paint.Net. No other photo editing program was used.
    I used the provided Wikipedia home page screenshot.
Image of paint.net in Today's Featured article comes from Wikipedia's paint.net article. So does the text.
Glowing globe is from icon in upper left is from 3ddude.
Flags display list in languages section is from famfamfam.

Edited to add the bibliography. (Image link list)

My inspiration was to make something smooth, sleek, easy on the eyes, and most of all, less cluttered.

The original Wikipedia was too jumbled up for me.

I also wanted it to be customizable (when logged in of course), so you could move around the Featured Article and all those other things in the main section to your tastes.

So without further ado, I present to you, Wikipedia: Silversleek

Everything else I either made myself or was a font.

Enjoy!
