I used Wikipedia for years without ever making an edit. I've probably looked at thousands of articles, on everything from endothermic reactions to Lisa the Vegetarian or the buttered cat paradox. Then one day, I thought: "Hey, why don't I try to give something back?" After a couple of IP edits, I created an account and things have slowly escalated from there.
Bilorv's nominated article for DYK, "The Convention Conundrum", appeared on the Main Page on June 1, 2014 between 10:18 and 21:33 UTC. It was created on May 2 (by Bilorv) and nominated on May 3. It looked like this while on the Main Page. Based on pageview statistics from May 2014, the Main Page received roughly 4.7 million views during the time the DYK was there. The actual number of people that read the "hook" is (currently) impossible to calculate, but the article received 2571 views while on the Main Page. The article was nominated for good article status on June 26, 2014 and was promoted to GA status on August 13, 2014, when it looked like this.
Bilorv first reached 100 edits in a month in December 2013, the month xe joined. In January 2013, the milestone 250 was passed. Over 500 edits were made by Bilorv in May 2014: more than a third of xyr total edits at the time.
