This editor is a Senior Editor and is entitled to display this Rhodium Editor Star.
Dkriegls is often referred to as Daniel Krieglstein of Chicago, Illinois. I'm a regular editor to Wikipedia and support all efforts to expand public access to free and accurate knowledge. Born in Lawrence, Michigan, USA (1979), I occasionally teach at the Illinois Institute of Technology. Generally, I'm a good natured person who will work with any editor to find middle ground. I am a strong supporter of corrective criticism and encourage others to be more open to constructive feedback as a first step toward improvement. I'm also a peer-reviewer for the Journal of Clinical Psychology and creator of the In-School Entrepreneurship Directory on Wikia.


Be nice to new editors: My desire to become a regular editor of Wikipedia began with biography articles about my immediate family, in clear disharmony with WP:Conflict of interest. However, that emotional connection got me to read Wikipedia:Guidelines and get involved with the WikiProject Biography. I credit the kindness of experienced editors with guiding me into becoming a productive editor. I also remember how often I almost quit altogether because of a few bad encounters with editors attacking me for WP:Conflict of interest. Those personal attacks were mostly by novice editors, but all editors should be kind to new editors, even when they are grossly violating Wikipedia guidelines. Remember when you did stupid things around here? :)

How to write a 'Notable people' section


BulbB Several editors have worked hard to come up with guidelines on how best to write these sections. Not all are in agreement.

BulbB For the most widely agreed upon guidelines, refer to the Notable people section of the WikiProject Cities/US Guideline
