Ouch, I became a Labutnum this week in 2011. About time to find a Wikipedia Anonymous somewhere and/or say something about myself. Looking back at my contributions, I seem to have an interest in categorizing, adding people's birth/death data, and starting/expanding articles for obscure or strangely underrated cartographers, explorers and explorations, geneticists and biologists, clades, mountains, etc. Especially so when they are Dutch. The least unsung person I've started a bio for is probably Esther Vergeer, which bio someone else agreed was overdue. And I like to create definitive lists, including those of concertos for English horn, oboe quintets, oboists†, the strongest football nations*, spelling patterns in English* (crazy as they are), lakes in Washington, rivers of Europe, and the highest mountains of Africa, New Guinea, New Zealand, Washington and the Alps. The last one in three parts as it got way to big for a wikipedia page. Only two of my lists are amongst wikipedia's top visited pages: the List of highest mountains on Earth and the List of most expensive paintings* (5744 and 2784 views per day in 2017, respectively). Careful, the last one may make you feel a bit ill.
