About Backburner001[edit]

In the WikiWorld[edit]

I have been actively contributing to Wikipedia since December 2005, although I’ve had my account registered since March 2005. Currently, my contributions are focused on the following: the creation of stubs, requesting citations for newly added info, reversion of vandalism, the expansion of articles (my focus is on four in particular right now: Emergency management, Dispatcher, Fire investigation, and St. Edward High School (Lakewood, Ohio)), and active involvement in WikiProjects that catch my eye.

I realize that there may be times when one of my edits conflicts with that of another editor. Furthermore, there may be times when I will demand that your edit (or your reversion of my edit) be defended. All I ask is that you please treat me in a civil manner and not take my persistence personally. My intent is not to attack other editors; it is to increase the quality of the encyclopedia. To that end, I intend to defend my edits against what I perceive to be unfounded changes and to question other edits that I believe decrease the quality of the encyclopedia. I encourage other editors to do the same.
