Wiki-newbie? I can help

Member since 06 November 2008. Rollbacker; Article Reviewer; Copy Editor; Newbie Helper and Article Mergers. I was born and raised in Chicago, IL; currently residing in San Antonio, Texas. I have resided in, vacationed in, and/or worked in 48 of the 50 United States.

Interests[edit]

I have had a varied and eclectic work and educational background.

My educational background includes major interests in history; biology; Latin; grammar; astronomy; and advertising.

I was a BASIC and Visual Basic programmer back in the day. I have had life-long interests in, and worked as an entertainer (including stage, Radio, and TV Acting; and still periodically perform as a Radio and Mobile DJ). I am a published genealogist.

I have owned my own businesses; and I have worked in corporate America as well as small business enterprises. I wrote corporate newsletters and contributed to local and national newspapers, retail catalogs, and broadcast media early in my career. This entailed a working knowledge of grammar, proper punctuation, and newspaper/newsletter/catalog lay-out (including graphic, table, and picture placements). As an active steinologist, I am a true believer of its basic precepts.

On Wikipedia, a hobby of mine, history is a very strong interest, as is copy editing and reliable referencing (re.: checks, creation, and inclusions). Other Wikipedia interests include:

  • Merging multiple articles into one cohesive and informative article.
  • Creation of Wikipedia articles with meaningful content;
  • Historically accurate place names and dating;
  • Proper grammar, punctuation, and written English;
  • The War of Independence—(or "American Revolutionary War" for you Brits);
  • Colonial, national, territorial and state border developments;
  • Accurate biographical and immediate family information of article subject(s);
  • Illinois; North Carolina; Tennessee; Texas;
  • Colonial America and Native American interaction;
  • Helping new articles/editors get off the ground;
  • Geographical changes or events;

Category implementation[edit]

I no longer create Categories, as I am repeatedly told that Lists are more informative, as once again one of my categories is getting deleted. I should think, then, that categories are highly redundant and should simply be abandoned as an encyclopedic tool here; they should then all be replaced by a system of List Articles.
