I'm Gilliam, Wikipedian since 2005. As an administrator and active editor, I strive to strike a balance between volunteer admin tasks and free writing contributions.
At the moment, I enjoy improving the history section of any U.S. town, especially small, unincorporated communities, formerly having focused on topics pertaining to my native Cincinnati metropolitan area.
A short list of favorite Wiki-related external links and gadgets appears in the sections below.
- Citing sources
- ProveIt GT (Highly recommended!)
- Enable ProveIt at your preferences under 'Gadgets'; it will then appear in in the edit box. Create references by filling in fields such as URL, page title, etc.
- Citation Tool for Google Books (Highly recommended!)
- Search database at https://books.google.com with desired keyword(s). Once you find a page containing what you need, copy and paste page URL into the Citation Tool, and it will instantly generate a ref you can add directly to Wikipedia
- HathiTrust Digital Library similar to Google Books
- Project Gutenberg
- Google Newspaper Archive
- The free Google Newspaper Archive is a searchable database of old newspapers. Once you find the article you need, copy/paste URL, date, author, etc. into ProveIt.
- Counter vandalism
N.B. I encourage any vandal fighter to tick "Hide my edits from the watchlist" in the "Watchlist" section in your preferences. This will allow you to better monitor recent changes.
