Happy 20th anniversary, Wikipedia!

Oh, wow, I can't believe it's been 20 years since Wikipedia was founded! Today marks the site's 20th anniversary. I wanted to do something special for this occasion, so I spent a day working on this picture. It has many iconic people, companies, countries, characters, and more, and represents the site, as a whole.

It looks incredible, doesn't it?

The tools used 

I used GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program) to create the image. I spent hours gathering images I found on Google Images, resizing them, and making other changes (credit goes to the authors of the images used). 

The fonts chosen 

Myanmar Text (the bold variant) is the font I used for both the "2" and "th" in the picture, and "2001-2021" is also typed in this font. The word "anniversary" is typed in Times New Roman.

My history 

I've been editing articles on Wikipedia since the early 2010s (I've also contributed to Wikia-based sites, such as the Chicken Invaders wiki, and the Henry Danger wiki). Time really flies!
