Greetings and salutations![edit]

I'm Maryana. I'm a literature and languages person by trade, but I like dabbling in anything that strikes my fancy. There's so much still to be done here!

What I do[edit]

I'll happily take on copyediting requests (just ask!) – I especially enjoy fixing up articles written by non-native English speakers. I'm fluent in Russian and Ukrainian, so I also try to watch Wikipedia:Pages needing translation into English for any Slavic-related material that needs improvement.

Otherwise, you'll find me spiffying up random articles, helping newbies, and occasionally creating articles on various and sundry topics I happen to know something about.

Stuff I've done (that you can help improve!)[edit]

Wikipedians are nice[edit]

Thank you for subjecting yourself to the potentially hilarious memes that will flow from your forthcoming appearance in the Fundraiser.

Thanks Accedie! You assisted in various ways on the Paul McCartney FAC. Thank you! Without your help and support McCartney would not be a FA today! ~ GabeMc (talk|contribs) 21:31, 9 July 2012 (UTC)

Thanks much for your help with creating a new page for my student.

I am relatively new to the wiki experiment and using the wiki as part of my class assignments.

Your helpfulness has motivated me to incorporate the wiki more seriously in my college classes and become more familiar with the editing process.

For raising awareness at Wikimania of gender-related issues and the ways in which we unintentionally or subconsciously exclude people from participating fully in Wikipedia.
