User:The Rambling Man

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

I am The Rambling Man. I've been about a bit, not as much as The Ramblin' Man (nor as long as The Running Man) but I've done my time. I first edited Wikipedia in May 2005 with a small modification to Harold Faltermeyer. The rest, as they say, is history. As of January 2015, I've made around 125,000 edits, some of them useful, many tens of thousands to articles. I like to help out at In The News and Today's Featured List, and fix the odd error wherever I can. It is striking how hard some editors work to get others blocked or banned despite making zero tangible contribution to the encyclopedia. Worse are those who add reams of text, making false assumptions and false accusations, yet bring nothing, absolutely zero to the project, pretending to be some kind of monitor. Do us a favour and actually contribute to the encyclopaedia.

Remember this is an encyclopaedia which depends on the quality of its articles. Please, write a good stub from scratch, or improve an article from stub to B-class, or be inspired to create a good article or beyond.... That is, after all, what this entire project is about.

We're here to build an encyclopaedia, not a chat group.
