Our work together here should be our armor, not some sharp, angry, burning sword. I would strongly recommend that everyone here find an article to work on for a while; not the cliche "random article", but something that gives you a nice tug at the heartstrings. It feels great to be out there doing work on something you genuinely care about, and I assure you it'll help you regain the sense of why you're here.

My Wiki-bio, circa 2015, for an article about me by a journalist.

Professionally, I'm a software engineer. (That's a computer programmer that's more full of themselves.) I currently work for a company that makes software, after having worked for a company which knows everything except how to spell its name (I've been a Wikipedian longest). I've written most of a few articles about people from each.

I got to do this neat thing for the earlier one, which helps lots of people find free (as-in-speech) images, including those usable for this project. Here are some images I found (or took), and put on Wikimedia Commons.

Other[edit]

Creationist museums[edit]

From an Articles for deletion discussion where I was challenged to create some articles to prove it could be done.

Not creationist museum[edit]

James Jones Literary Society First Novel Fellowship authors[edit]

From another Articles for deletion discussion where the claim was made that winners of this award aren't notable. So far - well, as I look into it, some were, and some weren't. These are some that were. Also expanded article on the society and award.
