Hi Jkshapiro! What kind of development do you do? --JayRulesXKCD (talk) 11:48, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

Actually the more I learn about front end development the more I realise I don't actually do it. I do have a programming background and I can slap together enough Javascript to create pretty decent prototypes, but when you start getting into intermediate stuff like MVC frameworks or the shadow DOM I lose interest. Really what I am professionally is a very good interaction designer with some decent skills in related areas such as prototype development, business analysis, and project management. I'll update my user page; thanks for the prompt. Jkshapiro (talk) 13:22, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

Hairbun, girl or not[edit]

Hi Jkshapiro. I have made a comment in your proposal and also reinserted a note in the Hairbun section. I think that it is prudent given that you did not get any replies that agreed with your proposed change from any one else but me. As I already said I do not mind, but many people now know of her as Hair Bun Girl and might be confused. So at least for the time being there should still be a note. Also I will make a change to her page to explain that she was originally named Hair Bun Girl. Good luck with the massive job of changing her name all along the way. I have used it quite a lot in my huge effort to explain 1608: Hoverboard. --Kynde (talk) 10:07, 25 March 2016 (UTC)

Glacier Movement[edit]

Hi, you have edited that a glacier moves at 1 metre/day, instead of 25cm/day as the explanation mentioned earlier. Your information is directly from the Wikipedia article, but that article links a source that says 25cm, which I think is quite confusing. Did you just check the wikipedia article, or do you have other sources that say 1m? I do not want to edit back and forth on this... --Lupo (talk) 07:06, 26 June 2019 (UTC)

It's a fair cop. Yes, that's exactly what I did and your point is a good one. Will fix here, and I've updated Wikipedia too. Thank you for the personal contact, much appreciated, and would be happy to continue dialogue as necessary. Jkshapiro (talk) 15:22, 26 June 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for the edit, especially for the Wikipedia one. I am not registered to Wikipedia, so I didn't do the change there, when I first checked their source (as the 1m seemed pretty fast to me). --Lupo (talk) 09:40, 27 June 2019 (UTC)
