I like the icons so far, I think they would be better with colors off the
logo (or other colors on the wiki). Orange and blue are nice and contrast
well together but I'm not really sure how well they would go with the style
of the overall site. You have an eye for color though. I also think it
would be nice if the icons were different colors (that you think suited the
category), it would be fun to design templates around those colors and make
them change between categories so the wiki was more interesting to look at
(such as CSS being orange, and making it so the templates will switch to
orange if the topic is set to CSS or something). You could do this with the
switch function with the ParserFunctions extension.
