Ah yes, that skin thing. Yeah, I think it needs a bit of a different feel to it (not to mention a few bugs worked out, such as keeping the skin applied when you move between pages). I don't know what would be good, though.
I know even less about the workings behind wikis than you do. I was probably just looking for things that seemed useful (I really don't remember that far back).
I'm a member of PokéCommunity, another forum. They'll soon be introducing a support wiki of their own (thanks to my suggestion), and since they're far more populous than we are, they'll probably come up with something decent. We can always "be inspired" by their skin and layout and what have you. Ahem.
