User:Albany NY

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Welcome to Albany NY's user page. I have been a member of Wikipedia since July 2006. Although my main focus is on improving articles relating to New York's Capital District, I often edit articles in numerous areas. Common tasks of mine include adding infoboxes, geolinks, and references to articles, wikifying dead-end pages, creating redirects, uploading photographs, editing section headings, and formatting bold text, italics, and capitalization. I'm a fairly passionate inclusionist in regard to Wikipedia philosophy (see [1][2][3][4]).
