I love understanding and loathe ignorance, and feel strongly that knowledge should be free and accessible.

I see clear evidence that the wisdom of crowds exists and is flourishing on the web and actively support open source and community projects including Wikipedia.

I do what I can to help but will perhaps never be as prolific or as accurate an editor as ClueBot, but then what human could be?

There are currently 5,444,685 articles on the English Wikipedia; wow!

See Featured articles for the cream of the crop.

My sandbox

Welcome to my laboratory, where safety is number one priority - NOT - Mwahahaha!

Find links to stuff I've made or am working on, including user scripts.

Transcluded from my sandbox.

My JavaScript & CSS

Developed for the default "Vector" skin. May not work well or at all for others.

May conflict with other user scripts and/or styling, and/or Gadgets.
Some do conflict with MediaWiki Web Fonts (will look into it).

Currently in use and reliable

But probably still being fine tuned.

On the todo list

Not fully fleshed out
Working but nasty

Avoid like the plague!

I've just started learning Lua so this may be empty for a while.
