Hi there. I've been involved in Wikipedia, on and off, since before 2005, when I was a child. I've used IPs and other names in the past.

Send things to me on my talk page. I'm very likely to see it.
You can send me a private message too. You can also say how I may use information you give in a private message (for example, whether or not it may be included in a Wiki talk page if it is Wikipedia related - I will assume not). Private messages are plaintext emails (and emails go through many servers owned by other people), don't expect secrecy by default.

I see Wikipedia as a public resource, an important contribution to the collective usefulness of the Internet, and something that helps the survival and progress of humanity, and will for many years to come.

It may never be perfect (is anything but a God perfect?), and has constant issues regarding neutrality and reliability, but many different people from all over the world use it every day, life would be very different without it. I've taken much from Wikipedia, and applied it to many different things in life. I mostly pay back with my small contributions of information, and some money as well. I still use Wikipedia, and am likely to pay back for a long time.

I usually contribute with small corrections or adjustments on the articles I read, and not new information. It is too time-consuming to add new information, and issues like POV and Notability always appear to be an obstacle.

This user hates userboxes apart from Babel boxes and a few other practical ones.
