[Wikimedia-l] What's making you happy this week? (Week of 2 April 2017)

Pine W
I'm grateful to hear about the goodwill, hope, and energy at the Wikimedia
Conference in Berlin. I get the impression that most people felt that the
conference was a positive experience.

Many photos of the conference have already appeared on Commons. To
highlight a few:

Hopes for the conference:

Nice! I'm glad to hear.

Well, I was happy that two of my Reddit subreddits' posts proved popular and
sparked some discussion over there. I also started setting up this page on my
personal wiki (based on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ikiwiki ) for the ongoing
"/dev/null is WebScale" meme -
http://shlomifishswiki.branchable.com/slash-dev-null_is_WebScale/ . There was
also a facebook discussion about it, but I'll have to ask the person I talked
with for permission to share it - it was both amusing and insightful.

Anyway, I'm not too active on wikimedia wikis - mostly just fixing typos and
doing other cleanups as I go.

The other day someone on freenode spelled "exercise" as "exercize", twice in
the same sentence, and when I pointed to him that it was not the correct
spelling, he insisted it was the American English spelling. However, both
https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Special:Search?search=exercize&searchToken=8jsnwk7uwxs57egwx936j59d9
and https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/exercize agreed with me that it
was not a correct spelling, even in American English. And he claimed I was
trolling. Oh well.

Regards,

I am happy this week to be writing up an interview about the recent
experience of being a young Wikipedian and coming out as a trans
person, discovering our wiki communities a welcoming and positive
environment.

As an older married gay guy, it gives me a whole new perspective on
the social value of our community, and plenty of ideas for improvement
and sharing best practices across our multi-lingual projects. Thanks
to everyone that made it possible for me to go to the Wikimedia
Conference this year. :-)

Cheers,
Fae

Turned out that buried in my images from an editathon at Birmingham
Museum Collection Centre in 2015 there was an image of a pair of
inflated caterpillars.

This image (and the article about Inflated Caterpillars that was on the
en.wp mainpage on Saturday) has also made me happy :)
