Right about now,[edit]

I could use some wikilove. I hope there is a good article about hangovers, but I am not up to editing it. -- Cimon Avaro on a pogo stick 22:50 24 Jun 2003 (UTC)

Does love relieve hangover?! Or is Wikilove a gift unlike any other? --Menchi 23:02 24 Jun 2003 (UTC)

I don't know. maybe it travels the whole world round. Sorry, have to go barf now -- Cimon Avaro on a pogo stick 23:45 24 Jun 2003 (UTC)

In praise of Wikipedia editors[edit]

(from the Wikipedia:Village pump)

Yesterday I wrote an article on Abdul Qadeer Khan, the Pakistani nuclear engineer. I uploaded it shortly before 8pm UTC. Only 16 hours later, it's already received a variety of useful edits from seven other editors. I think this is amazing - Wikipedia's editing community is incredibly responsive. It's a great tool, but it's the energy and enthusiasm of the contributors, so visible in this instance, which have made it so successful. Long may it continue. :-) -- ChrisO 13:01, 3 Feb 2004 (UTC)

It's a great job, by all concerned. If only Igor "The Beard" Kurchatov were as good. -- Finlay McWalter | Talk 13:22, 3 Feb 2004 (UTC)
Finlay, you shouldn't advertise this guy. His name almost outclasses yours. ;) fabiform | talk 13:58, 3 Feb 2004 (UTC)
Anyone for Great beards of the 20th century? I see a great need... :D -- ChrisO 15:09, 3 Feb 2004 (UTC)
Here's a great starting point: [1] :) fabiform | talk 15:40, 3 Feb 2004 (UTC)
Or here... - Woodrow 00:22, 7 Apr 2004 (UTC)
I have been floored in my whole Wiki week here by several things--the wonderful wiki markup that makes it so easy to do the necessary work, the instantaneous way in which the links become real (ok, when the servers aren't struggling their little behinds off), the ability to go in and clean up stuff, even minor, that you happen to notice, the tools for monitoring what's going on in every concievable manner, and the awesome community that has been nothing but supportive of me and my novice questions. Wiki, I love you, man! (OK, that's a little overdone--) Elf

Wikipedia is simply the best![edit]

(from the village pump) Above all, if one needs mathematical or scientific information, Wikipedia is simply the best, which brought the Web out in the last years. There are to some extent understandable, clear and extensive explanations to (nearly) each topic. Still to it the whole is free. It is fascinating that also in the today's Spam and garbage and troll contaminated Web still another project instructed on voluntariness, self-check and co-operation survive can.

Further so, Wikipedia!

Thank you! :) --mav 11:07, 12 Feb 2004 (UTC)

Oh, I can't have tea.[edit]
