All Wikia can be customized to change the look and feel of the site. This is a gallery of some of the best customizations so far on Wikia, using Wikia's Monaco skin.

If you have made changes to your Monaco skin, and would like to add the example to this page then please do.

Monaco can be customized by editing the style sheet at http://WIKINAME.wikia.com/wiki/MediaWiki:Monaco.css and certain interface pages in the MediaWiki namespace; details can be found at Halp:Customizing Monaco, and Community Team members are available to help you learn.

To borrow a technique from one of these wikis, copy the relevant section of CSS from their style sheet into yours and adjust as necessary. While code may be freely borrowed, please do not use images from other wikis for background, bullets or other graphic elements unless you have discussed it with the designers -- substitute your own images into the code instead. The point of customization is to look different from other wikis, and it is impolite to borrow another wiki's signature design without permission.
