- LoginNotify should soon be deployed to the English Wikipedia. This will notify users when there are suspicious login attempts on their account.
- The new version of XTools is nearing an official release. This suite of tools includes administrator statistics, an improved edit counter, among other tools that may benefit administrators. You can report issues on Phabricator and provide general feedback at mw:Talk:XTools.
Bye for now
My life has taken an unexpected turn, and I simply don't have the time or energy for Wikipedia at the moment. I may be back at some future point, I really can't say what the future holds right now, but for the moment I am a user of Wikipedia but not a contributor.
That being the case, it would be awesome if somebody could set up auto archiving on my talk page. Set it up however seems best, I'll change it if needed if and when I am active again. Thanks.
A beer for you!
