Hello, this is Garagepunk66. I've taken some spare time to make a few contributions at Wikipedia. I'm interested in music, literature, film, arts, architecture, and culture, as well as history and current events (and whatever else). I am fascinated by the endeavors of humankind spanning centuries and decades. You can tell from the pictures below that I have a particular interest the 1960s, which holds a special place for me. But, there are so many great periods, and there is so much to write about. So, I'm here to help out any way I can.

  • Mottos: "The sources are the maps, not the destination." "The only thing more important than reliable sources is a team of reliable editors."
  • Guiding principles: 1) I try to treat people with dignity and respect. I believe in listening to and working with other editors in a spirit of collegiality, even if I sometimes respectfully disagree with intelligent, well-intentioned people. I seek to find a mutually beneficial consensus with other editors. 2) Except in the more glaring cases, I generally oppose deletion of articles and believe that improving an article on an obscure topic is preferable to destroying it.

Association of Wikipedians Who Dislike Making Broad Judgments About the Worthiness of a General Category of Article, and Who Are in Favor of the Deletion of Some Particularly Bad Articles, but That Doesn't Mean They Are Deletionists


Est omnino difficile iudicare inclusionis meritum cuiusdam rei in encyclopædia cum ratio sciendi quid populi referat incerta sit, sed nihilominus aliquid encyclopædiam dedecet

It is generally difficult to judge the worthiness of a particular topic for inclusion in an encyclopedia considering that there is no certain way to know what interests people, but some topics nevertheless are not fit for an encyclopedia.

This motto reflects the desire of these Wikipedians to be reluctant, but not entirely unwilling, to remove articles from Wikipedia.
