I've created about 49 articles - not including simple splits, disambigs, redirects or transwikis. This list is much more reliable than that created by tools, because tools count all those things (even redirects, if they become articles or disambigs later), and also they can overcount or undercount articles which have since moved or changed subject.

Started from scratch[edit]

Most of these I created as stubs and added to sometime later. Nowadays I prefer to give articles a decent start with a few paragraphs, references, external links and perhaps a picture; only a few I created longer than this. In the early days of Wikipedia, stubs and even substubs (pages consisting of just a single sentence) were acceptable, but the entry barrier for new articles is much higher now. Articles now need to be of good quality from the very start, which is quite hard on Wikipedia newcomers, and is not a good thing for several reasons — see my userpage note on this and related issues.

  1. Herzog Zwei
  2. koru
  3. tenebrescence
  4. tugtupite
  5. Phantom mobile device vibration — see my essay on my userpage about how this was deleted three times before the fourth re-creation was kept (under the title phantom ringing). A good example of the entry barrier.
