This is a new account but I'm not new to Wikipedia. I originally started editing years ago, mostly anonymously, other times under the username, NwJerseyLiz (contributions here, not many edits) which I stopped using in 2010. That year, I switched to editing under IP accounts 69.125.134.86 (contributions here, over 2,000 edits) or 68.197.237.22 (contributions here), but have created this username account (contributions here) so I can do a variety of activities that unregistered accounts can not do. There are times though that I do not want to log in, especially if I'm feeling Wikihounded. But you can find me on either one of those two last accounts. Here's my breakdown of edit history with this account. Newjerseyliz (talk) 00:14, 27 July 2013 (UTC)

Picture of the day
Christmas truce

The Christmas truce was a series of unofficial truces between British and German forces which occurred along the Western Front of World War I around Christmas 1914. In the week leading up to Christmas, soldiers exchanged seasonal greetings and songs between their trenches. On Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, many soldiers from both sides independently ventured into "no man's land" between the lines. There they mingled, exchanged food and souvenirs, and on several occasions held joint burial ceremonies and carol-singing. Troops from both sides were also friendly enough to play games of football with one another.

Although fighting continued to take place in some places, the truce is often considered a symbolic moment of peace and humanity amidst one of the most violent events of human history. However, the high commanders on both sides saw it as insubordination, and it was not repeated after 1914.

Association of Wikipedians Who Dislike Making Broad Judgments About the Worthiness of a General Category of Article, and Who Are in Favor of the Deletion of Some Particularly Bad Articles, but That Doesn't Mean They Are Deletionists

Est omnino difficile iudicare inclusionis meritum cuiusdam rei in encyclopædia cum ratio sciendi quid populi referat incerta sit, sed nihilominus aliquid encyclopædiam dedecet

It is generally difficult to judge the worthiness of a particular topic for inclusion in an encyclopedia considering that there is no certain way to know what interests people, but some topics nevertheless are not fit for an encyclopedia.

This motto reflects the desire of these Wikipedians to be reluctant, but not entirely unwilling, to remove articles from Wikipedia.
