Interview for The Signpost[edit]

The WikiProject Report would like to focus on WikiProject Microsoft for a Signpost article. This is an excellent opportunity to draw attention to your efforts and attract new members to the project. Would you be willing to participate in an interview? If so, here are the questions for the interview. Just add your response below each question and feel free to skip any questions that you don't feel comfortable answering. Multiple editors will have an opportunity to respond to the interview questions, so be sure to sign your answers.

WikiProject X is live![edit]

WikiProject X icon.svg

Hello everyone!

You may have received a message from me earlier asking you to comment on my WikiProject X proposal. The good news is that WikiProject X is now live! In our first phase, we are focusing on research. At this time, we are looking for people to share their experiences with WikiProjects: good, bad, or neutral. We are also looking for WikiProjects that may be interested in trying out new tools and layouts that will make participating easier and projects easier to maintain. If you or your WikiProject are interested, check us out! Note that this is an opt-in program; no WikiProject will be required to change anything against its wishes. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!

Note: To receive additional notifications about WikiProject X on this talk page, please add this page to Wikipedia:WikiProject X/Newsletter. Otherwise, this will be the last notification sent about WikiProject X.

My concern about this article is directly related to why I came to the article: I have IIS on my Windows 7 machine. I do not know if I need it running. I do not know if it provides functions that I need, or that it is primarily for people who want to develop websites, or even run websites from their machine. I do not intend to run or develop websites. But I cannot tell from this article if I can therefore safely turn it off. Nowhere does the article say simply what its purpose is. I see that it is a webserver but what does that mean for someone who does not run a web page or is not developing a web page? Is IIS needed by the average user of Window 7? I cannot tell from this article. I keep searching through the internet and every article reproduces this same perspective. Nowhere can I find whether I need it if I am not running or developing a website. A simple question. The article assumes too much. It should simply start with what IIS does, who it is used by, when it needs to be turned on as a Windows Feature control console, etc. Simple questions that I cannot get answers from, but would have expected to find here. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Personalnjc (talkcontribs) 01:37, 5 March 2015 (UTC)

Talk:Windows thumbnail cache[edit]

Hi. There is a small dispute in Talk:Windows thumbnail cache § EXIF thumbnails that I was hoping someone could help with. Hopefully, it is not serious. Best regards, Codename Lisa (talk) 16:21, 6 April 2015 (UTC)
