Bio[edit]

I'm just one of the thousands of geeks who are hooked on the joys of editing on Wikipedia. Somebody save me please! Although, it's cheaper than having a girlfriend...

Why I edit[edit]

I have been editing on Wikipedia for over ten years and have made my share of mistakes and continue to do so. There is layer upon layer of policy nowadays; I can't track it all. I write articles because I am sincerely interested in the topics. If I stand up for the ones I work on, it is in the spirit of being a contributor to Wikipedia. If you disagree with me, let's not make it personal or a question of guilt or innocence. If I disagree with you, I sincerely disagree, but I hope to always be open to good advice.

Articles i've created or contributed to:[edit]

I live in Toronto, so I edit about Toronto. Since I'm Canadian, I am forced to write about ice hockey. I just can't help it. I've started contributing to editing film articles, and maybe there I can make a useful contribution (finally). Also, since I am Canadian, I appreciate politeness, please.

  • adding infoboxes to persons
  • linking Canadian biographical pages to the Canadians page rather than to the Canada page which seems to have been used for a long time
  • correcting links to Toronto, that might be to York, or not include Canada
  • reducing duplicate wikilinks
