I am not constantly or consistently on wiki at any given time. I might be able to spend 10 hours a day editing; or I may be away for extended periods of time. The reasons aren't important to wiki, but the point is that if you don't get a response here in short order - please feel free to look elsewhere. It has never been my intent to ignore anyone, and it never will be. If I don't respond in a reasonable time frame, feel free to ping me again, or drop me an email. If you type something here to me, 99% of the time I will answer (here). I try very hard to not ignore people. The few exceptions would be trolling, people I've asked to stay off my talk page, and vandalism that isn't funny. (funny vandalism is always at least smiled at prior to deletion). ~ Ched
Many thanks for your help and assistance over the last day or so. Cheers – SchroCat (talk) 20:25, 21 September 2019 (UTC)
I'm at a bit of a loss for words, but Thank You very much SchroCat. I really didn't do anything, but it is appreciated. For multiple reasons, I do cherish this above many other accolades over the years. It truly means a lot. — Ched (talk) 20:30, 21 September 2019 (UTC)
... for encouraging people to be arbs, and otherconnections among us! --
A "Thank you" with a 'toxic' naked lady plant. Well - I'll say you're welcome, thank you for the thank you, appreciate the beauty of the naked ladies, - and I'll not eat the daisies. Hope you're well Gerda. Thank you to a sweet woman. :) — Ched (talk) 15:22, 30 September 2019 (UTC)
Sorry it took me a month to acknowledge your nice message. :( All seems well. I haven't been getting myself into as much trouble as I used to. Mellowing with age, maybe. Or maybe just avoiding it, most of the time. 0:) ←Baseball BugsWhat's up, Doc?carrots→ 12:04, 2 October 2019 (UTC)
Hey Bugs, no problem. I logged back in a couple months ago, mainly because of the whole WP:FRAM issue, and haven't really left again ... at least not yet. I looked around a bit, and didn't see your name at WP:AN or WP:ANI and it got me wondering if you were still around. Your talk page was blank, so I checked your contribs and noticed you're mostly working on reference/help desk things. I just wanted to say hello. I thought maybe you were just avoiding everything and everybody just for some peace and quiet. Glad you're not getting in to much trouble these days. Take care my friend. — Ched (talk) 16:55, 2 October 2019 (UTC)
Well, they asked (or told) me to stay away from ANI for at least 6 months. That was nearly a year and a half ago, and things are just fine. :) ←Baseball BugsWhat's up, Doc?carrots→ 02:37, 3 October 2019 (UTC)
Glad it's going so well for you. :-) — Ched (talk) 16:07, 5 October 2019 (UTC)
The new version of MediaWiki will be on test wikis and MediaWiki.org from 15 October. It will be on non-Wikipedia wikis and some Wikipedias from 16 October. It will be on all wikis from 17 October (calendar).
Internet Explorer 6 and 7 are no longer supported. This means the browsers might start looking a bit weird. They will not get security support. You can't read Wikimedia wikis in Internet Explorer on Windows XP or Windows versions that are older than Windows XP. This is because almost no one uses the browsers anymore. Supporting them made the wikis less secure for everyone else. 
In the future section headings might have a share link. This is to make it easier to link to the section. You can read more and discuss.
