Hi, I've been an active user of Wikipedia for around 6 years (mostly since late 2011 though) now (as of mid 2014), and I'm still a lil leary of editing certain things that I don't know much about. A long while ago, I learned enough about html coding to know that I didn't want to know any more about it.  ;) I have been and am willing to learn more about how Wikipedia works though, and I don't have an axe to grind with anyone. As a scientist for over 20 years now, I highly value verifiable facts over ideology. I hate to say this, but Wikipedia would be a lot easier to deal with if it weren't for some of the blatant "dicks" that unfortunately seem to roam around here at relatively free will...ugh...

As of May 2014, I also occasionally like to fix missing reference list errors (mostly in articles), articles with missing files (which are mostly missing pictures), disambiguation errors within actual articles (when I'm not making them myself...doh!), disputed (dubious) statements in articles, and adding Wiki-links to articles.

Works in Progress[edit]

As a meteorologist by trade, who used to work for the National Weather Service (I do not claim to speak for the NWS here on Wikipedia though) and who currently works in the private weather industry in the USA, what I plan on editing in the future:

My expertise in weather includes short-term mesometeorology as it relates to severe weather, winter weather, and hydrology (flooding).

Pages that I have created[edit]


  • over 155 re-direct pages, mostly for weather-related terms.

Pages that I have edited[edit]

Among many, many other pages -

  • Local storm report - still needs some references & maybe some more examples.
  • Severe thunderstorm watch - still needs some updating for current NWS procedures.
  • Tropical Storm Emily - I guess I've kind of "adopted" this page after having difficulty in trying to use it to edit another page
  • Flood - still might need some work, but it's off to a good start at least
  • Happy Endings? - might need a few more references (?).
  • Lap dance - in pretty good shape, minus needing a source for some UK statements & the Canadian section maybe needing some more help.
  • Gonzo pornography - did some major cleanup and updating of this article, which needs a few more citations now.
  • List of American death metal bands - after way too much baloney just trying to get the proper edits done there, this article just needs maybe a little more expansion and some added citations.
  • Snoop Dogg's Doggystyle and the sequel Snoop Dogg's Hustlaz: Diary of a Pimp - did some major cleanup/updating on these breakthrough adult movie articles, that might need some more citations and/or expansion now (?).

Pages that I need help with[edit]
