Just reading this, reminded me once again of how grateful we always are to have you around, and thought it had been too long without me saying it.

Please support the Sustainability Initiative!
Hi, TheDJ! Please allow me to follow up on a project that was discussed at the Wikimedia Conference in Berlin a couple of weeks ago:
I am writing you to ask for your support for the Sustainability Initiative, which aims at reducing the environmental impact of the Wikimedia movement. Over the past two years, more than 250 Wikipedians from all over the world have come together to push the Wikimedia movement towards greater sustainability.
The Board of Trustees of the Wikimedia Foundation has recently passed a resolution stating that the Foundation is committed to seeking ways to reduce the impact of its activities on the environment. Now, we are working with the Wikimedia Foundation staff to have all Wikimedia servers run on renewable energy by 2019.
In order to demonstrate that this is an issue that the community really cares about, I would like to ask you to sign the project page as well. Thank you!
Editing 101 for devs
I find mailarchive:wikitech-l/2014-October/078973.html simple and useful. Can you paste it on some stable wiki page (ideally an existing one) where devs have some chance to find it in the future as well?
I realize it's been a while, but I decided to start a page for this: Editing wiki's for developers. What do you think ?
Also pinging @Quiddity (WMF):

Starting conversion of LiquidThreads to Flow at mediawiki.org
(Hi TheDJ. I know that you already know, so I'm just adding this here for completism, and for any of your page-watchers. :)
Hello. I'm sending this to you, because you've been one of the top 50 users of LQT on mediawiki.org over the last 360 days, and I wanted to make sure that you'd seen the announcement at Starting conversion of LiquidThreads to Flow at mediawiki.org. There are links in the topic-summary at the top, for other discussions (wikitech-l and Project:Current_issues), and a link to the planned process and timeline (scheduled to begin April 6, with smaller conversions at first). Please do test Flow out at Talk:Sandbox if you haven't tried it recently, and give any feedback/suggestions/requests at that main discussion location. Much thanks.
It probably isn't that useful anymore. I suggest disabling it.
I greatly appreciate all your help on the Media Viewer talk page, particular during the few hours I get to sleep :)
Thanks, we solved that few months ago :-)
