Maybe we should use the term "additional information" instead of "wiki

The same goes for leechers, that term has sort of a different meaning in
real life than it does in the wonderful world of technology, maybe we
could use peers instead. Or we could simply label a spin "Available" or
not depending on the presence of a seed then have a "request sharing"
button that would file a bug in case there are no seeds for whatever

Might it also be an idea to turn the spin creator title into a link to
said persons wiki page if one is available.

Aside that, I'm liking the spindetailsmock2.png quite a lot.
