Hi,

It's still Tuesday in my timezone, so here's this week's thread.
Noticed something neat or cool that someone did? Or is someone just
being awesome in general? Say thanks!

* Thanks to Krinkle and Krenair for cleaning up user JavaScript across
Wikimedia wikis.
* Thanks to MusikAnimal for figuring out why signatures are typed
using four tiles (~~~~)[1].
* Thanks to Jjanes for helping to maintain Postgres support in MediaWiki
.
* And thanks to Quiddity for always staying positive. :-)

Re: Thank you Tuesday

Risker
That information about the genesis of the code for signatures is very
interesting.  I've included it as a historical footnote on the relevant enwiki
page
<https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wikipedia%3ASignatures&type=revision&diff=879833503&oldid=876066084>,
and others might want to add it elsewhere.  These historical tidbits,
especially one that shows such a lovely human side to the practice of
coding and software development, can become even more meaningful over
time.  Thanks, Magnus - and thanks MusikAnimal for asking the question.
