I am also DS1953 on:


I began editing Wikipedia in 2004. Most of the articles I have created from scratch are about people or or places relating to Illinois. I have also researched and expanded several articles, many of which were being listed for deletion at the time they came to my attention. However, much of my editing is simply cleaning up articles. Misspellings, poor prose, and generally failing to observe the Manual of Style reflect badly on Wikipedia and I like to fix those problems when I see them.
