Current Projects[edit]

Among kelvSYC's editing specialties are in Canadian football, ice hockey, professional wrestling, Mahjong, Pokémon, and Power Rangers.

One of the major undertakings is to develop articles in Canadian football, which in the user's opinion is lacking in depth and style. To this extent, the user has currently adding articles on Canadian football trophies.

Another major project are franchise timelines for sports leagues. Currently, the only reasonably complete timeline is the one for the National Hockey League. For more discussion on the timelines, check out /Timelines. Users at Wikipedia are welcome to post their feedback there.

User Style[edit]

With the MonoBook skin, the text became a bit too big for my liking, the line spacing was too wide, and the bullets too big. These were among the changes that I made to my user style. Have a look: /monobook.css

This is still far from complete - it works for my browser of choice, Safari, but looks ugly in any other browser (one thing is that the left bar width is reduced - so that it appears that the Wikipedia logo is in too small of a space), including Camino, my backup browser (and the one I use to insert non-Latin-1 characters into en.wikipedia). There seems to be a small problem with the tabs if you view it as 72 dpi (a shame as it's the default on Mac browsers).

I've largely abandoned this skin, and right now working on a skin in Wiktionary (based on MySkin) that will give me the precise look that I want. It is very monobook-ish, I can tell you that much...
