Now that I'm teaching full-time, I'm not around Wikipedia on a day-to-day basis anymore, but feel free to leave a note on my Talk page if you have some article ideas to which you think I could make a useful contribution. I'll do what I can during my next bout of wiki-itis. Lawikitejana 03:53, 29 November 2006 (UTC)

A little tiny bit of bragging: The featured biography for Portal:Dallas for April 2007 is Stanley Marcus, summarizing an article I created after someone on the Neiman-Marcus article's Talk page complained that the N-M article overstated his importance to the fashion industry.
A tiny bit more ... an article to which I made substantial contributions, Byron Nelson, has been promoted to Good Article status as of today.Lawikitejana 02:50, 27 May 2007 (UTC)
Yet again ... the "Did you know ...?" feature for August 10, 2007, included an item from the David Leeson article I had written. Lawikitejana 09:05, 11 August 2007 (UTC)
The Stanley Marcus piece is now officially a Good Article!Lawikitejana (talk) 04:11, 17 June 2008 (UTC)

Other Wikipedia tasks[edit]

I have been experimenting lately with the following tasks:

  • Using the "random article" navigation to find articles to edit, particularly with respect to assessing biographical articles and adding wikilinks to content.
  • Going through sets of book and biography articles to ensure the appropriate WikiProject template has been added to the talk page.
  • Working on a select set of politically and/or religiously charged articles relating to U.S. popular culture (books, TV, major speakers) and controversial issues and trying to improve the NPOV orientation. I believe this is especially important to do with respect to strengthening articles on positions to which one is opposed, because championing a position in the outside non-NPOV world is much more satisfying when one knows other positions have been well portrayed and given the opportunity of serious consideration.
  • Adding U.S. two-year colleges to Category:Two-year colleges in the United States and editing those articles as need arises — volunteer helpers welcomed with joy!
