126 473 …

… this is the amount of English wikipedia contributors allowed to participate to the 2013 2013 Arbitration Committee Elections.

The eligibility condition checked by this number is the amount of accounts having made at least 150 mainspace edits by 1 November 2013.

The English Wikipedia has now 12 years. This figure so means there is something like ten thousands contributors having made a significant contribution to the main namespace each year, a little less than 1 000 per month,  at least one per hour.

If the English Wikipedia would be a country, and those people its population,  it would the 192th according this list of countries by population. This is something between Jersey or the United States Virgin Islands, and Guam.

Thank you to Ælfgar for this country comparison idea.

Kiba One : a responsive design for Wolfplex

I’m preparing a design for a social and technological alternative cultural center. The design should be able to be declined for several sites, with several accent colors.

It must stay sober but should allow more vivid stuff.

Constraints: a Neuropol text logo, and to reuse a tunnel photo, the two being printed on A3 posters for 3 years, but not really used on the web.

We keep the same footer, but with another color for the wiki (MediaWiki as engine). This color is repeated on the topmost 4px line, and then for the site actions (search, login, language selection). To quit the flat 2013 parading, we combine the flat approach with a drop shadow and a BeOS tab for the infobox.
This design can used to show black content too.
And it allows personnalization, like here a sample of an invitation for a cooking event. Spices photos by Zsuzsanna Kilian.
