I primarily work on articles that are flagged for copy-edit. While copy-editing them, I will generally verify any reference links, and attempt to add references to unreferenced statements. If part of the article seems incomplete or misleading, or the topic catches my interest, I'll start researching to see if I can expand it in the process. I like finding a topic I know nothing about, and then trying to discover as much useful information about it as reasonably possible. I will sometimes follow a chain of editing from article to related article, but I'm much more likely to prowl the GOCE lists for articles in rough shape. I prefer articles with lots of sources to discover. List articles, especially fiction-related lists, tend to bore me.
First of all forgive me if this is not the right format to respond to a edit that you did on my Wikipedia page. I am rather ignorant when it comes to HTML code and this is the only way I could find to reach you.
You had questioned the number of series I did for Q Television as they did not line up with the IMDB page. This is the only explanation I have. I DID NOT post the IMDB page, I think that may be guest who appeared on the show that placed the show they were on on that site. Also, the shows were later sold to the following.....Maniac TV, Out TV, Pride Television, Proud TV as well as PINK TV. The 165 episodes were a combination of The Jack E. Jett Shows, On Q Live and The Queer Edge with Jack E. Jett and The Queer Edge with Jack E. JEtt and Sandra Bernhard. As I am now retired from radio and TV and unfortunately do not have the understanding to correct the IMDB as I had a stroke and quadruple bypass a few years ago (this can be confirmed in news reports by google) I would simply like to get your NOTICE removed from my page. So can you please tell me how many episodes you would be happy with me placing in order to remove your demand for authenticity. My stroke left me with even more inability to maneuver around the Internet. Yet, I would like, for the sake of my own mini integrity to be thought of as an honest man. So I am willing to place any number you wish or no number at all if you will remove your citation request. OR perhaps you could reach me and let me know how to provide a citation of these shows. Please understand that I worked very hard on them. And also received a lot of flack from anti gay folks who have always made me walk an extra mile just because they can. So I would like to be recognized for the work Lastly, can you tell me how or why you have an interest in this particular show?
I can be reached (and would appreciate it greatly) at email@example.com
Thanks for your time and again, accept my apology if this is not the right format.

It seems that all the citations on my page are from you as I just noticed. I need clarification on this comment. If Jett had been PUBLISHEDin so many places then why (can't I find it or something to that effect). I am not sure what you mean by published as you took it upon yourself to delete the entire paragraph which is your right to do however how do I respond to something not there any longer. If I mentioned something about articles or printed interviews then that is easy to establish. The only problem with that would be the work I did for Radar Magazine who no longer post the work done prior to the takeover by The National Enquirer. So again, give me a number you would be comfortable with and I will go with that unless it is just much lower than those I count on Google. Not sure if it was you requesting the photo, but to show you how Wikipedia illiterate I am, I can't even figure out how to upload a photo. '
