Before creating a Wikipedia account, I authored the changes credited to and I have a wide (weird??) range of interests, and a pet peeve about poor grammar and composition. Most of my edits have been concerned with minor cleanup (which I understand I can now indicate as minor edits! YAY!) such as spelling and punctuation, but I hope to contribute factual corrections in cases where I am sufficiently knowledgeable.

This is going to sound especially dweebie, but I am somewhat proud of my re-write on the Black Alice article. It still needs work, but it's a heluva lot better than it was before I came into it.

On the right you see my random act of boredom: Userboxes. Yes, there are too many, but I have seen worse. Some of these I created myself, please use them if you wish, otherwise the graphics (if applicable) may be deleted by the admins. --Canonblack 03:11, 17 May 2006 (UTC)

Userbox sandbox[edit]

Userboxes I'm working on:

' This user is a big damn hero, sir

Userbox changes[edit]

All of my Userboxes, except the experimental Firefly box in the sandbox above (logo problems), are now archived within my Userspace and have been indexed to the appropriate categories. A new page, User:Canonblack/UBX, serves as an index to these and includes the template code needed to reproduce them. The Welsh hymn Userbox in the sandbox is still considered a draft because I'm not sure in which category it belongs, and, not being Cymric by blood, I am not sure that this is acceptable to Cymric Wikipedians. --Canonblack 08:53, 8 October 2006 (UTC)

List of articles[edit]

Trust me, my Userbox obsession is a very recent development (just this week, in fact). I have actually done worthwhile things here at Wikipedia. Here's an incomplete list of articles (I will continue to add to this as time permits) just so you can see what I've been up to.

Articles I have extensively rewritten:

Articles I created:

Articles for which I did copyedits or minor rewrites: too numerous to mention.
