Typo - In the media[edit]

In the photo caption, "Anies Baswedan, who is governing Jarkarta in the manner of a Wikipedia editor managing articles", there is a typo in Jakarta. JennyOz (talk) 02:41, 5 August 2017 (UTC)

Thank you editors[edit]

This is just a thank you note to all editors who created and delivered a new edition of the signpost. You guys are awesome. Thank you ! —TheDJ (talkcontribs) 09:11, 5 August 2017 (UTC)

I second that. Tony (talk) 11:30, 5 August 2017 (UTC)
Agree, excellent update. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 23:20, 5 August 2017 (UTC)
I third or fourth the thanks. Congratulations on breathing new life into the Signpost. I missed it during that long stretch when it didn't go out. Good job, and keep it up. — Maile (talk) 21:58, 8 August 2017 (UTC)

New editor-in-chief[edit]

It has just come to my attention that there is a new editor in chief of The Signpost, User:Evad37. I would like to say good luck to him, and I hope that his taking the reigns will help the signpost get back on track, and would like to bid farewell to the former Editor-in-chief, Pete Forsyth. You will be missed. Good luck Evad! Eddie891 Talk Work 15:59, 2 September 2017 (UTC)

REINS! (The rein is used to guide and control! ARRGH! Pet Peeve). But yes, hooray! Montanabw(talk) 05:09, 1 October 2017 (UTC)

Ditto. Evad37, thanks for taking it on. SarahSV (talk) 16:30, 2 September 2017 (UTC)
🙌 Wishing everyone here the best. Ed [talk] [majestic titan] 16:36, 2 September 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for the well wishes everyone, though it's really just noting/formalising the defacto job I've been doing for the last few issues - Evad37 [talk] 00:25, 3 September 2017 (UTC)

I'm glad you've formalised this, Evad. Tony (talk) 04:46, 3 September 2017 (UTC)
Congratulations and best wishes, Evad37. Thank you for serving, Peteforsyth; enjoyed working with you. --Rosiestep (talk) 04:52, 3 September 2017 (UTC)
+1 to everyone, thanks to Evad37 for stepping up and getting out some great issues already, and thanks to Pete for all the time and energy he devoted to the Signpost earlier!
I have updated the About page, and in the process also removed some recently added social media and contact links that seem obsolete currently.
However, we should make sure that the credentials for the longstanding @wikisignpost Twitter account are transitioned to the new editor-in-chief, as it has been the case since 2009. (I myself ran it when I was editor-in-chief in 2010/11, and handed over the password afterwards.) Who has these currently? And who is administrator of the Signpost's Facebook page?
Regards, HaeB (talk) 21:42, 10 September 2017 (UTC)
PS: I understand Evad37 has access to the Twitter handle now. Regards, HaeB (talk) 03:48, 17 September 2017 (UTC)

Gallery posting - Chickens[edit]

Greetings, Since the next issue Humour article is about chickens, I thought it would be also good for the gallery. First posting is now "out there". Regards, JoeHebda • (talk) 18:29, 18 September 2017 (UTC)

Chapter update Actrial[edit]

You note this "Wikimedia France held a General Assembly on 9 September 2011:". Sure that the date is correct ? --Gpesenti (talk) 02:55, 25 September 2017 (UTC)

Yeah, that's a typo. Fixed now. Evad37 [talk] 03:09, 25 September 2017 (UTC)
