Revision as of 06:32, 20 April 2019

The site uses Wikifont icons created by Mun May Tee-Galloway.

The iconset has not been updated, but I suggest we continue developing it as an open source project. The font has been forked in https://github.com/Wikidocumentaries/WikiFont.

Let's list missing icons here first!
