Here in Wikipedia I'm known as Fauban (pronounced /fəwˈban/). I don't know why did I choose that username, it doesn't mean anything...

For the most part, I tend to make small and sporadic contributions on Wikipedia, like corrections or removing blatant original research. However, I may have occasional outbursts of productivity, adding important amounts of sourced information. While I like to look up many different things in this site, my main areas of contribution are music (musicians, theory), and linguistics.

One thing to note is that English is not my first language, and what I write may sometimes come off as ruder than I wish it to.

WARNING: Besides my occasional grammar mistakes, I tend to make many typos in any language. It's not that I don't know the correct spelling, but rather that I have some sort of "keyboard dyslexia".
