Is it me, or has it become a bit like this these days?

Jimmy Wales' hypnotic eyes creep me out quite a bit.

I half expect a Coldplay track to start playing the next time I'll visit the Wikipedia.

The simultaneous feeling of enrichment and molestation is a fruit cocktail I've never tasted before.

Indeed. Interested in stalking exactly what he's done on the user-visible side? I'm totally not a stalker.

Wow, man. You picked, like, the totally wrong server to grab the contributions from. I rarely, if ever, do any work on meta.

This is probably better (though still not great).

And yes. I am the designer for the Wikimedia Foundation. That's a lot of stuff, and it's very slow going. About the only thing that is purely my design that is live on enwiki is the Article Feedback tool (which is in pilot mode - you can find it at the bottom of certain articles - like "United States" and "True Grit (2010 film)".

Regarding the Jimmy banners: they're disturbingly good at generating revenue. CRAZYTOWN good.

This chart shows you how much money we are making during the fundraiser every day. Whenever you see the big spikes on previous years? That's the Jimmy banners. They have a click-through and completion rate of something like 2.1%, which is mind-bogglingly high (considering that EVERY OTHER banner we test never gets above 0.02%).

So it's all about science.

(Uh. There is a banner with me on it, actually. I don't know if it has been tested or will ever roll out, though.)[url][/url]

I would donate to a jorm banner. But only if it somehow references your awesome facial hair.

It is a photo of me with a guitar and it says "Our Coders Rock" or something like that.

I'm sure Grugg would agree with me that it should say, "Look at the 'stache. LOOK AT IT"

Money in the bank.
