Hello. I'm a new Wikipedian, and am just starting to get the hang of editing. I've got the markup basically down, and am looking forward to starting to make articles.

I'm using my Rough Draft page to test out various features.

Created Pages list pages I've started or made (IMHO) a major contribution to. For vanity and reference when I try to do similar things.

Senator Template is my basic outline for the pages I'm creating of historic U.S. Senators. Just a note to THANK YOU sincerely for uploading the image of Charles Tait on Feb., 2006, which I just found. He is my grandfather, and I did not have a picture of him. What a thrill to find it! Most of my Tait information comes from a 280-page dissertation written in 1946, by Charles Hill Moffat. Again, thanks. --Southerngal 19:27, 20 November 2006 (UTC)

Thoughts on Wikipedia[edit]

This user is a member of the

Association of Wikipedians Who Dislike Making Broad Judgments About the Worthiness of a General Category of Article, and Who Are in Favor of the Deletion of Some Particularly Bad Articles, but That Doesn't Mean They Are Deletionists


Est omnino difficile iudicare inclusionis meritum cuiusdam rei in encyclopædia cum ratio sciendi quid populi referat incerta sit, sed nihilominus aliquid encyclopædiam dedecet

It is generally difficult to judge the worthiness of a particular topic for inclusion in an encyclopedia considering that there is no certain way to know what interests people, but some topics nevertheless are not fit for an encyclopedia.

This motto reflects the desire of these Wikipedians to be reluctant, but not entirely unwilling, to remove articles from Wikipedia.
