I'm surprised that the ongoing discussion about changing the RfB promotion threshold was not included here. --(ʞɿɐʇ) ɐuɐʞsǝp 20:15, 31 May 2011 (UTC)[reply]

Point taken - anyone who would like to cover important RfCs (and other notable community discussions) on a regular basis in the Signpost is very welcome to do so, see also the sadly defunct "Discussion Report" section and this recent discussion. Regards, HaeB (talk) 20:35, 31 May 2011 (UTC)[reply]
A link to a page explaining how to become a contributor to the Signpost might be helpful. Guy Macon (talk) 02:11, 1 June 2011 (UTC)[reply]
Well, for starters, every Signpost article links to the suggestions page. On top of it, various way to get involved are explained (including adding a story directly into the upcoming issue). I just added another link there which might help people who are unsure in which Signpost section a particular topic might fit best. Regards, HaeB (talk) 00:48, 2 June 2011 (UTC)[reply]
New Signpost writers are most welcome. Tony (talk) 03:35, 2 June 2011 (UTC)[reply]

Rennes panels

Another form of unwanted modification of one of the physical Wikipedia articles in Rennes, quite similar to what one might on the wiki: [1]

Seb35 has drafted another report about the event in Rennes (apparently unaware that the topic had already been covered here, but the draft may still interest some readers).

Erm, what's a "quadratic hole"? --Dweller (talk) 22:12, 4 June 2011 (UTC)[reply]

A square-shaped opening. Regards, HaeB (talk) 01:09, 5 June 2011 (UTC)[reply]
What a strange way to put it. I've never heard the word "quadratic" without it being followed by the word "equation". Mutiplicities of benevolent gratitudes. --Dweller (talk) 08:36, 5 June 2011 (UTC)[reply]
