I tend to be "sporadically active"—I'll work for days at a time and then disappear! I call these WikiBinges. You'll be able to tell whether I'm around by checking out my contributions.


I tend to label, rate, and stub/destub a variety of articles from any project. I do teeny things for all kinds of projects. These are just the projects where I've put myself down as a user.

I tend to edit pages I stumble upon in one way or another. Usually, when I try to look up one article for a reference, I end up: (a) editing the article with a grammar tweak at minimum, because it's so necessary!; (b) clicking on a wikilink to another article and having to edit THAT one; and (c) attempting to Wikify some links, which leads to seeing problems in the next article, which leads to editing those, which leads to viewing more articles...until I've suddenly got 30+ tabs open and they're ALL Wikipedia edit pages!

Lately (so I say on September 26, 2009 (2009-09-26), 5 years ago, after about 2 months or so), I have been doing a LOT of:

Stub sorting
Obeying the WP:Manual of Style
Dissuading all Americanisms (and that is purposely leading to a dab)

I also just made a long article about the Leslie L. Dan Pharmacy Building. :)
