Verify you've met me?
Hey, I installed Wikibase from scratch during the wikimania hackathon and you helped me with the binary vs. utf-8 collation issue. Maybe you could verify you've met me at https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:PB/A :) Dan scott (talk) 18:31, 11 August 2017 (UTC)

Help design a new feature to stop harassing emails
The Anti-Harassment Tools team plans to start develop of a new feature to allow users to restrict emails from new accounts. This feature will allow an individual user to stop harassing emails from coming through the Special:EmailUser system from abusive sockpuppeting accounts.
We’re inviting you to join the discussion because you have experience dealing with abusive sockpuppeting accounts and you work across many wikis. We think that your insights will help us build a better feature.
It is important to hear from a broad range of people who are interested in the design of the tool, so we hope you join the discussion and let us know how it would work best for you.

Better hashing alhorithm for unique reference names
Hi, we've been implementing the functionality mentioned in this task description, namely generating unique reference names for references created from Wikidata (and solving some adjacent problems), in ruwiki (after T175725: Deploy HTML5 sections to WMF production was done for ruwiki and some things broke). Do you have any thoughts on which algorithm is better suited for generating hash values for references? I've done my modest research and stopped at
fnv164 as it is fast, and 64-bit hash reduces collision probability to a negligibly small value. But maybe I am missing something.
hash_algos() gives is the following:
"adler32", "crc32", "crc32b", "fnv132", "fnv164", "fnv1a32", "fnv1a64", "gost", "haval128,3", "haval128,4", "haval128,5", "haval160,3", "haval160,4", "haval160,5", "haval192,3", "haval192,4", "haval192,5", "haval224,3", "haval224,4", "haval224,5", "haval256,3", "haval256,4", "haval256,5", "joaat", "md2", "md4", "md5", "ripemd128", "ripemd160", "ripemd256", "ripemd320", "sha1", "sha224", "sha256", "sha3-224", "sha3-256", "sha3-384", "sha3-512", "sha384", "sha512", "snefru", "tiger128,3", "tiger128,4", "tiger160,3", "tiger160,4", "tiger192,3", "tiger192,4", "whirlpool"
