Talk to me — if you have questions or comments, feel free to post them below or send me an email. If you saw me edit on your wiki, it was probably related to the synchbot service (which maintains global user pages for others) or interface editor (which lets me maintain my user scripts).

About me — my name is Jesse. Nowadays I quietly write scripts, make the occasional edit, and love Shanel. Many moons ago I was an active editor and administrator on several wikis, a Wikimedia steward (2006–2014), a language committee member (2006–2011), an email response volunteer (2006–2011), and a Board elections committee member (2008 and 2009).

Any idea what happened to user:Shanel?[edit]

Hi. Any idea what happened to user:Shanel? 4thfile4thrank (talk) 22:24, 09 December 2020‎ (UTC)

Yep, we're married now. She's not active on-wiki anymore though. —Pathoschild 23:47, 09 December 2020 (UTC)
@Pathoschild: Thanks for the quick response. 4thfile4thrank (talk) 23:49, 09 December 2020 (UTC)

AND we luvs you both! Hope all doing well. :-)  — billinghurst sDrewth 05:07, 27 January 2021 (UTC)

Custom signatures[edit]

Hi, Jesse. Your username is the only one that appears in as having an "invalid" custom signature. MediaWiki was changed last year to require a local link in a custom signature. The linked page can be a redirect, and there only needs to be one local link. So, for example, you could have a link to your Meta-Wiki user page, your Meta-Wiki user talk page, and your local contributions, or a link to your local user page (which displays your global userpage) and a link to your talk page here. There's more information at mw:New requirements for user signatures/Help.

If you set this up across multiple wikis, then I believe that you will unfortunately have to update each one separately. It seems that the bulk-prefs-changing tools have all been disabled, and GlobalPrefs doesn't seem to handle signatures. (Please ping me if you have questions.)

Hi! I removed my custom signature on that wiki. (I've been removing them on each wiki as I notice them.) —Pathoschild 01:57, 07 January 2021 (UTC)


Hi! Catanalysis throws an error [1] for oldwikisource:Category:Georgian, and it seems like only for that category. Could you have a look into it? (Is this an OK place to report bugs? I'm not sure if the github repository linked is still the correct place, and, well, I don't have an account there) --MF-W 23:03, 25 January 2021 (UTC)

Hi! Here is fine. I optimized the query to fix that; let me know if you notice any other issues! —Pathoschild 23:06, 26 January 2021 (UTC)
