To those who care 8-) , I apologise for my unannounced absence. I took an impromptu WikiHoliday? in about August 2003, mostly due to pressure of time. Having lost the immediate RecentChangesJunkie habit but retained the background urge to know all changes that had been made, I couldn't face the growing mountain of changes that must surely have been made during my absence. Yes, of course this is silly.
2004-02-02: new job, which it seems was a relief for all concerned.
2004-08-27: I'm not exactly back in the RecentChangesJunkie seat, but I'm less absent than I was before.
2005-11-24: /me tips hat to kind soul who restored this page after vandalism. ThankYou.
My BookmarkList? of pages I think I need to read later, or again:
DigressingOne EditingPieMenus SetInStone ReadTheWholeWiki DoTheRightThing FearOfWriting, WhyDontOthersGetWiki and other stuff linked to MappersVsPackers SelfReference WikiAsPatchworkQuilt ClueMineCleaning I should do. March 2003 would be good.
Notes for me, later:
[I had WikiMail here! I don't need to keep it, but just so you know I did get some at least once (-8 ]
ThankYou for your support. I had too much time on my hands and found the list of OrphanPages. I guess this is PairWikiSpringCleaning?? On WindowsWay: It's still an orphan (except for the links on our HomePages), perhaps you know a parent that would like to adopt it? -- AalbertTorsius. PS: First WikiMail I ever had!
PairWikiSpringCleaning?? Not really. You did the work, deletion just takes two people.
In short, if you think something is OffTopic, remove it, if they put it back with more zealous aplomb than you remove it, then they are right about the topic and you are wrong.
Reaction? I'm new to all this, so I don't have a wiki page (DavidDickens? is blank), but I'll be sure to check back here to see if you've replied.
Sorry I didn't write some kind of reply earlier. I think I broadly agree with you, but also I think things have stayed the same while the paradigm has shifted slightly underneath, since we wrote about these things. -- m
