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".
Some articles with significant contribuitions by me
- Bill Evans [Added lots of information, added most of the sources]
- Alexander Scriabin [Wrote about his musical style, with sources]
- Symphony No. 10 (Schubert) [Wrote almost everything]
- Dominant seventh sharp ninth chord [General cleanup, added important sources]
- Anton Webern [Mentioned his Nazi sympathies, with sources]
- Grammatical gender [Added lots of information, added most of the sources, removed tons of original research]
- Catalan language [Added lots of information, added most of the sources]
- Phonological history of French [partial cleanup]
