Farewell[edit]

Just saw you declared retirement less than half an hour ago. If it's official this time, then I'll wish you a last goodbye and give my best regards. Take care pal. Snuggums (talk / edits) 17:52, 15 February 2018 (UTC)

Thank you SNUGGUMS, this really means a lot. This is truly the end, and I feel like I've reached a point where I must close one chapter of my life and start a new one. This isn't a decision I've taken lightly but for a number of reasons I must do what I can to move on and focus my attention on more concrete aspects. I feel more uplifted now, like a good weight has been taken off me. Farewell my friend, it has been a pleasure working with you over the years. JAGUAR 17:59, 15 February 2018 (UTC)
In that case, I'll miss you, and also enjoyed working together. You won't be forgotten. Snuggums (talk / edits) 22:35, 15 February 2018 (UTC)

I will also miss you - we haven't worked together a lot, but I always appreciated your work here, and loved following your Rare Replay and NiGHTS projects among others. Thank you, and I wish you good luck.--Alexandra IDVtalk 00:00, 16 February 2018 (UTC)

I'll miss you too, Jaguar. We never fully worked together (I did end up getting Sonic CD to GA-status on my own), but like IDV, I am a huge fan of your work and will cherish being able to have communicated with you. Goodbye :) JOEBRO64 00:03, 16 February 2018 (UTC)

Tell me its not true! But, it is your decision, my friend, and I respect that. Bonne chance and farewell. All the best for your future endeavours. I've enjoyed the time I've worked together with you and will certainly miss you. Face-sad.svg  — Ssven2 Looking at you, kid 13:06, 27 February 2018 (UTC)
It was a pleasure working with you Jaguar. I will miss you greatly. Have a wonderful life. Adios! Yashthepunisher (talk) 14:37, 27 February 2018 (UTC)

Didn't you say you were unafraid of a certain GA review? - Will miss you. Good wishes! --Gerda Arendt (talk) 14:55, 27 February 2018 (UTC)
You were one of the first people I came across on Wikipedia, seems like the end of an era. 😢 I hope you check in every once in a while. Good luck with, well, life. VedantTalk 17:51, 27 February 2018 (UTC)

Request for excerpt of Nintendo Official Magazine Issue #72[edit]

Hello there Jaguar,

I realized you've retired and might not see this but just in case you do go on Wikipedia any time soon:

I was wondering if I could get my hands on the seventy-second issue of Nintendo Official Magazine, specifically its Mario's Picross review? I'm trying to improve the article and you are listed as the contact for that specific issue on this page. The excerpt would help broaden the reception section as well as provide some references.

Please ping me if you read this. Thanks~

Thanks for the email! This source will be a big help for referencing. ~ P*h3i (📨) 22:08, 14 March 2018 (UTC)

Upcoming changes to wikitext parsing[edit]

Hello,

There will be some changes to the way wikitext is parsed during the next few weeks. It will affect all namespaces. You can see a list of pages that may display incorrectly at Special:LintErrors. Since most of the easy problems have already been solved at the English Wikipedia, I am specifically contacting tech-savvy editors such as yourself with this one-time message, in the hope that you will be able to investigate the remaining high-priority pages during the next month.

There are approximately 10,000 articles (and many more non-article pages) with high-priority errors. The most important ones are the articles with misnested tags and table problems. Some of these involve templates, such as infoboxes, or the way the template is used in the article. In some cases, the "error" is a minor, unimportant difference in the visual appearance. In other cases, the results are undesirable. You can see a before-and-after comparison of any article by adding ?action=parsermigration-edit to the end of a link, like this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arthur_Foss?action=parsermigration-edit (which shows a difference in how {{infobox ship}} is parsed).

If you are interested in helping with this project, please see Wikipedia:Linter. There are also some basic instructions (and links to even more information) at https://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikitech-ambassadors/2018-April/001836.html You can also leave a note at WT:Linter if you have questions.

Thank you for all the good things you do for the English Wikipedia. Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 21:18, 19 April 2018 (UTC)
