Welcome to my userpage!! Links to most of my subpages are found at the top. Thanks to Rock drum for the user logo! My favorite color is turquoise, but I changed the background to a pale turquoise to be easier on the eyes.SCongratulate.gif

About Me[edit]

I created an account on May 13, 2010. (want proof?)

Edit count.

I am a female. I live somewhere in the United States of America. I'm younger than you think, so please be patient!! I tend to ask a lot of questions. I'm also fairly new to Wikipedia--I started on May 13, 2010. My name is NOT Glimmer, nor is this a reference to a very minor character in The Hunger Games. It's just a something I'm working on...and probably SHOULD be editing right now, rather than Wikipedia.

To find out more about me, please look at the userboxes on the side or the drop-downs below.

I am also good friends in real life with Lily075, who I can't get to edit very much.

Editing and I[edit]

I began with editing mostly book articles, including the Hunger Games trilogy and related subjects, as well as A Series of Unfortunate Events, The 39 Clues, Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Harry Potter, and The Lord of the Rings. However, I have sort of abanoned books because of lack of sources and inspiration.

I began working on more film and television-related articles recently, mainly with references. I shifted to improving the quality of Doctor Who episode pages and I have got the fifth series to a Good Topic. I am currently working on the sixth series now, and keeping track of the seventh as it emerges. I also help out with The X-Files.

I also help out with the Good Article backlog with article formats I am familiar with.

Everything I do on Wikipedia is manual. I do not use Huggle, Twinkle, or anything else because they don't work on Internet Explorer 8, which is what I use. However, I do have Rollback rights and use that to help revert vandalism (though it seems someone is always quicker than me). I also like fixing wikilinks, expanding reference info, and patrolling recent pages.

My biggest pet peeve is references that are just bare urls or don't use proper citation templates, like {{cite web}}.

Pages I have created[edit]

(in order, not including disambiguations or redirects turned articles)

Templates

I really like adding navboxes to improve navigation between pages of a series. I have created:

I have uploaded these files, as well as these on the Commons.

Things to work on[edit]

I'm dialing it back to pursue my own creative hobbies. I got kind of burnt out, and now I'm going to try to work on one thing at a time. Maybe bigger things.

  1. Doctor Who (series 6) needs to be finished up. What to do about Night and the Doctor? Death is the Only Answer?
  2. Doctor Who (series 1) - Watch Confidentials, add reception, etc. One episode at a time? First focus: "The Unquiet Dead".
  3. Continue adding reception to classic serials as I watch them.
  4. Clara Oswald - monitor
  5. Finish up Amy Pond
  6. Other DVD special features: Remembrance of the Daleks (need to finish; is there enough for GA?), Earthshock, Day of the Daleks, The Rescue, The Romans, and Terror of the Autons.
  7. Divergent (novel) - got some development information....
  8. Maybe take "The Eleventh Hour" to FA?
  9. Clean up Buffy the Vampire Slayer episodes? At least add reception.

The things vandals come up with...[edit]

My mistakes[edit]

I make mistakes, too! I'm okay at spelling, but there are just some words I tend to type wrong. And then there are the usual typos.

  • What happens when you transfer something from your sandbox quickly: [2]
  • Once I told my friend to read over this article to see if there was anything she did not understand as I was planning to nominate it for GA once my others had been reviewed, and she looked at me and said, "It was watched by 6.49 people?" And I said, "Yeah! That's not that bad!" She repeated, "6 and a half people?" And I said again, "Yes!" A little while later I realized I had left out the "million" and hurried over to the computer to add it. Then I did it again. There are several examples of this.
  • Another result of transferring something from your sandbox: [3], And another, And again
  • This IP was kind enough to correct a rather embarrassing grammar mistake. (He/she also corrected another "million" issue)

Other stuff[edit]
