Hello all! As my username suggests, I live in the United States (Wisconsin, to be precise), and I like lemmings. Having admired Wikipedia from afar for many years, I finally decided to get in on the action.

I'm a German/Spanish/pre-med triple major at the University of Oklahoma. As far as my editing goes, I generally fix typos and other such mistakes as I read Wikipedia (I use Wikipedia a lot). Every once in a while I'll copy-edit an article at GAN or FAC that piques my interest. I also maintain the GA stats page, which no one ever looks at.

My three pet peeves are words that are capitalized that shouldn't be, extra white space at the top of articles, and biographies that don't have the current age/age at time of death in the info box. My interests include history, foreign languages, commercial aviation, and medicine.

In case you didn't notice, I like lemmings.

What I've done around here[edit]

My relationship to Treblinka extermination camp is rather complex. I'll just state the facts:

1. I copy-edited and reviewed the article during its GAN in late October 2013 (48 edits to the GAN page and 76 comments).
2. I copy-edited and reviewed the article during its first run at FAC in early November 2013 (76 edits to the FAC review page and 15 new comments).
3. I copy-edited and reviewed the article immediately after its FAC was archived in mid-December 2013 (126 edits to the article talk page and 60 more comments).

Thus, I've copy-edited the article three times and made 837 edits to the article proper, bringing me to a total of 1,087 Treblinka-related edits, along with 151 comments. AmericanLemming (talk) 05:43, 16 May 2014 (UTC)

I just realized this was your first GA, so you definitely deserve one of these. Congrats-- I hope it's the first of many. -- Khazar2 (talk) 02:19, 20 August 2013 (UTC)

Your mediation attempts, though perhaps not entirely successful, have not gone unnoticed. Don't be discouraged from continuing to be a neutral voice in other disputes on Wikipedia. Cheers, Ma®©usBritish{chat} 19:42, 11 January 2014 (UTC)
