Edit-a-thon tomorrow (Saturday) in OaklandEdit

Hi, I hope you will be joining us tomorrow afternoon at the Edit-a-thon at Tech Liminal, in Oakland. We'll be working on articles relating to women and democracy (and anything else that interests you). It's sponsored by the California League of Women Voters, Tech Liminal, and me.

If this is the first you are hearing of this event, my apologies for the last-minute notice! I announced it on the San Francisco email list and by a banner on your watchlist, but I neglected to look at the San Francisco invitation list until this evening. If you can't make it this time, I hope to see you at a similar event soon! -Pete (talk) 04:45, 15 December 2012 (UTC)

Auto scaling images for the Main Page of WikivoyageEdit

Hi there! I was just wondering if you could perhaps help us over at Wikivoyage with the creation of our new Main Page? I asked on the Meta Tech page for help and your name was suggested. We've already got a design, (here: http://en.wikivoyage.org/wiki/User:Nicholasjf21/MainPage) but we'd to somehow make the images and text change size and/or position in order to fit each user's screen resolution (apparently this is called Responsive web design?). It had been suggested that we'd need JavaScript to make it work, but on Tech, I was told that CSS would be sufficient. If you'd be at all prepared to help us out, we'd be very grateful. The discussion page is here: http://en.wikivoyage.org/wiki/Talk:Main_Page#New_Main_Page_Idea Thanks!
