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.

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 did however get to do this neat thing for the latter, 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.
Besides minor edits, my early work was in Category:Role-playing games.
- Worlds of Wonder (and stubbed Worlds of Wonder (toy company) to avoid confusion)
- Justice, Inc. (role-playing game)
- Boot Hill (role-playing game)
- Superworld (expanded from stub)
- Template:D&D-stub and Category:Dungeons & Dragons stubs (I called it Category:D&D stubs), to separate from Category: Role-playing game stubs which was overflowing
- Category:Basic Role-Playing System
- Ringworld (RPG) (expanded from stub)
- James Bond 007 (role-playing game)
- Category:Role-playing games - strictly categorized; other WP:RPG participants have since cleaned up much more thoroughly
- Down With the King (game) - baroque age political card and counter game
- Hitler's War (game) - very large scale hex wargame

From an Articles for deletion discussion where I was challenged to create some articles to prove it could be done.
- 7 Wonders Museum
- Akron Fossils & Science Center
- Big Valley Creation Science Museum
- Creation Evidence Museum
- Mt. Blanco Fossil Museum
- Category: Creationist museums
Not creationist museum
- Morro Bay State Park Museum of Natural History - because after making those, I was accused of being a creationist, and counter-challenged to create an article about a "real" museum.
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.
