For your work in notifying authorities about the potential suicide threat on Wikipedia this evening.

FWIW, you may wish to display this on your user page. Either way, thank you.Toddst1 (talk) 05:33, 18 October 2010 (UTC)

Philippe, I would personally like to say Thank you for the work you've been doing over the past few years both on and off Wikipedia and through the Wikimedia Foundation! A great thing which I noticed is that you like to listen and understand the problems first, and then find the right solutions for it :) I wish you and the rest of the WMF team all the best in doing their work successfully. Best Regards! TheGeneralUser (talk) 18:34, 16 December 2013 (UTC)

Favorite quotes

"Have you ever skied at Jackson Hole in Wyoming?
Well, there is a sign at the top of the mountain that is both enthralling and terrifying:
'Our mountain is like nothing you have skied before!
Give this mountain the special respect it demands!'
Wikimedia is that mountain."

-- Stu West, WMF Board, in discussing Wikimedia Strategic Planning

Werdna: As a developer, I am obliged to forget about things and act like it is obvious when somebody asks.

Word cloud

I love this. It's a word cloud built from the Skills statements that were submitted in applications for strategic planning task forces.
