I do check this page occasionally, but I log into MW.org far more often, so it's best to contact me there.

Speedy deletion of pages moved to MediaWiki.org[edit]

Hello. I see you have imported many pages from meta to mediawiki.org and you have tagged these pages for speedy deletion on meta. For the moment I haven't deleted them because they don't meet meta SD criteria. I think it would be better to create a common RfD for all these pages. guillom 10:30, 19 December 2006 (UTC)

Hi Guillom - I'm not all that fussed about what happens with those pages - I was just flagging them as unneeded, and there is no direct correlation to them on MW.org so a soft-redirect is not suitable. Please feel free to put them through whatever process you like. --HappyDog 16:37, 19 December 2006 (UTC)

Semantic MediaWiki is an extension[edit]

Hi, I see in December 2006 you removed category:MediaWiki extensions from Semantic MediaWiki. I'm curious why? It really is an extension to MediaWiki. Is it because SMW is also a project whose deliverable is this extension? If so, how should we (I work on the software) organize the project info and the extension info? -- skierpage 03:26, 1 February 2007 (UTC)

Sysop rights[edit]

Hello HappyDog,

Per this request, you are now a (regular) sysop. Congrats. Please list yourself in Template:List of administrators. Thanks, and good luck!

P.S. I notice you have no email set, would you be so kind as to set one, as is required for admins here. Cheers. Majorly (talk) 06:27, 11 September 2007 (UTC)

Wikibooks Logo Discussion[edit]

I strongly disagree with your reinstatement of the guideline for the localization of logos for Wikibooks. I ask that you take a look at my comments on the discussion page and reconsider. I feel it would be a much better solution to request logo submissions to include a plan for translation, that way this entire issue can be resolved with this one process. I don't want to institute a new policy without more input from the community and I would rather not go back and forth reverting the page. Could you please remove the new guideline until other people have a chance to add their opinion? --Ezra Katz 22:39, 12 December 2007 (UTC)

October admin confirmations[edit]

Just to let you know that, per Meta:Admin#Poll after a year, your local rights on meta are up for their annual reconfirmation at Meta:Administrators/confirm. WJBscribe (talk) 21:56, 7 October 2008 (UTC)

Admin confirmations[edit]

Hi, your rights were removed after the yearly confirmations due to you not being actively using your admin tools. --Cometstyles 02:47, 22 October 2008 (UTC)

Change to section edit links[edit]

The brackets were not added as part of that change, they've always been there since Erik implemented section editing in 2003. Matma Rex (talk) 19:41, 21 March 2016 (UTC)

Hi - I realised that shortly after editing. Please feel free to remove or to reword if you think it's useful to include this information. --HappyDog (talk) 19:51, 21 March 2016 (UTC)
