"Wikipedia's articles are no place for strong views. Or rather, we feel about strong views the way that a natural history museum feels about tigers. We admire them and want our visitors to see how fierce and clever they are, so we stuff them and mount them for close inspection. We put up all sorts of carefully worded signs to get people to appreciate them as much as we do. But however much we adore tigers, a live tiger loose in the museum is seen as an urgent problem." --WP:TIGER

Only 995442114 articles left until our billionth article![edit]

  • For all who have expressed concern about my health, I thank you. Here is an update. It isn't anything life threatening (even though the overall death rate for humans is still 100%) -- more on the annoying side of things. I will still be able to edit Wikipedia, but I might disappear for a while at random times, so don't worry if you see that I haven't edited in a while. --Guy Macon (talk) 19:10, 17 June 2014 (UTC)
Still recovering, but I am making progress. Looking forward to being able to work at WP:DRN. --Guy Macon (talk) 21:15, 14 July 2014 (UTC)

New discussion[edit]

2014 main page redesign[edit]

Hi Guy Macon. I would have addressed this message to you at the talk page if you hadn't unwatched it. I don't know what the current state of the project is, but I created a design (what do you think of it?) that hid away most of the rubbish, but less so than you did in your design. I would actually rather the main page have your design, but apparently it's too different for the community to accept yet. For your information, I'm willing discuss changes to the process if/when you are. JamesDouch (talk) 14:08, 16 July 2014 (UTC)
