My book, Wikipedia: The Missing Manual, was published by O'Reilly Media (Pogue Press) on January 25, 2008. It was the first book about how to edit Wikipedia; the second, How Wikipedia Works, was published in September 2008. More information about the book can be found at my website, or to be more accurate, at archive.org's copy of my website (long story), here.
Wow, I saw the manual was scheduled to be shipped to Borders the other day, and while browsing Wikipedia, I find the author. This manual was a great idea, and hopefully will do well. Good luck, Malinaccier (talk) 00:08, 25 January 2008 (UTC)
I concur, from the limited previews I've read online, it looks excellent. Must get to a bookstore ASAP. :) Keilana|Parlez ici 00:09, 25 January 2008 (UTC)

For your work around the VisualEditor; while we'd like to see zero bugs, bugs will happen, and your reporting of them has been particularly helpful and detailed. Okeyes (WMF) (talk) 07:48, 15 July 2013 (UTC)
Thank you for your insightful comments and corrections around new interface changes. I am very glad to see you weighing in; usually a sign that a conversation is in good hands and brokenness being mended. – SJ + 08:42, 16 July 2013 (UTC)
