Welcome[edit]

Hi Why My Fleece?! It turns out one of the extensions I installed to allow advanced RSS feeds was throwing an error with your user name. Well, I uninstalled it until I can get an upgrade that doens't have this same issue. Welcome! -Nostromo 10:24, 16 April 2007 (CDT)

Vandalism[edit]

Hi again WMF?! No worries about asking questions, I'm always thrilled when others take interest in the project. (We have a LOOOT more viewers here than participators.) So, you're now an admin -- in the future you can freely delete or protect pages with similar occurrences.

However, in this instance, I think that the user may have been requesting the page -- since it doesn't include any spammy links and it is an actual subject that we cover. So, I went ahead and found some source and made the page, Implement the Boyer-Moore string search algorithm.

Thanks for noticing the odd page and keeping an eye on quality! Cheers, -Nostromo 16:58, 22 April 2007 (CDT)

Hi WMF -- Just FYI, we're updating to the latest version of MediaWiki and installing a captcha system to help reduce spam. We can also look to some new features of the latest mediawiki to reduce the number of attacks. Let me know if you have any comments or suggestions. Thx -Nostromo 10:31, 25 September 2007 (CDT)
