Photos of The Wiki in Action

To show off the ability of the wiki, we want to see what it can and cannot run on, so if you have not yet, take a photo of a device that is running the wiki, and post it here. If you can, tell us a little about the photo, like what OS it is, what browser you are running, and anything else that you feel like!

How to Take a Photo

Make sure that the image is well-lit and that we can not only see your device, but also what is on the screen. Don't own a camera? That's fine, most mobile phones today have a camera pre-installed into them - using your phone to take the photo is more than fine.

Added bonus if you have a pet in frame (tell us about them; we love pets here!).

The Wiki in Action

Photos of the current wiki, as taken by the users of Penny's Pages. If you plan on adding your own image, please post the newer image higher than older one, so that new images appear at the top. You might also like to conciser to optimize the image.
