Do you miss the Monaco skin?
All ShoutWiki wikis can now have the Monaco skin, see this announcement. You can also add the Monaco skin to your wiki in 10 minutes (Detailed instructions) (Discussion and questions)

This list is based on the extensions listed on Special:Version on Community Central, and on the Anti-Wikia Alliance.

Many of the extensions which Wikia has are readily available to ShoutWiki wiki editors such as Tabber.

Linking to the source code or original author of these extension would be great for those wikis running their own servers.
