My original focus on Wikipedia was editing and referencing rail transit-focused articles (which I still do... just not as often now) – I find referencing to be especially relaxing, and rail-focused articles tend to be statistics-based and are therefore less controversial (and, thus, less contentious) than many of the articles on Wikipedia. More recently, I've moved on to other targets for editing, such as Biographies of living persons (esp. television-related), and articles on television shows, occasionally in the context of reviewing.

Article creation[edit]

I've created 40 proper articles (i.e. non-redirect, non-disambiguation) so far:

† Created as merge (and redirect) of five separate articles in to one complete article; supplemented with some original content.
‡ Article moved to mainspace from draftspace by an editor other than myself.

The following 12 articles, while not technically "new articles", were either effectively new articles that were replacing redirects, were essentially new creations replacing a stub article, or were split-outs of new articles from existing articles:

Notes:

  1. ^ Not original content: a simple split-out from List of The Vampire Diaries characters.
  2. ^ Not original content: a split-out from The Norm Show, though with subsequent improvement work performed on the content.
  3. ^ Not original content: a split-out from Fantasy Island (1977 TV series), though with some subsequent improvement work performed on the content.
  4. ^ Not original content: a split-out from Burke's Law (1963 TV series), though with some subsequent improvement work performed on the content.
  5. ^ Not original content: a split-out from Family Affair.

Templates (mostly "spin-offs") I've created:
