I've been a registered Wikipedian since May 2004, after reading about the project in a friend's LiveJournal. It didn't take long for an obsession to develop. I enjoy fixing grammar, punctuation, and spelling errors, which is what first got me hooked. Since then, I've moved back and forth among a lot of different areas: wikifying, hitting the random page button and fixing what I can, sorting stubs into categories, cleaning unsuitable articles from the new pages, and Recent Changes patrol. Now and then, I create a new article: 80 so far. The most unpleasant to research was Creeping eruption.
Joy, I'd like to award you this WikiThanks barnstar for helping me out quickly and graciously over the last couple of days after I randomly approached you for help. Thanks again! Fernando Rizo 4 July 2005 02:58 (UTC)
