Wikipedia Membership[edit]

I joined Wikipedia on August 11, 2007 despite my first contribution having been made on the 12th; with the intentions to improve all articles relating to Japan, but I have done other things, also. I am a member of the following wikiprojects and portals:

Date of Registry Project/Portal Participants Page
August 11, 2007 Japan Portal Participants Page
August 11, 2008 Wikiproject: Japan Participants Page
August 11, 2008 Wikiproject: Trains in Japan Participants Page
July 5, 2009 Wikiproject: New Mexico Participants Page

Current Projects[edit]

I am not creating and improving articles on anything at the moment.

Future Projects[edit]

Not in any particular order:

  • Project IndyCar: Including racetracks, drivers, races, seasons and anything else you can think of.
  • Project NASCAR: Postponed.
  • Japanese Airport Project: Postponed.
  • Project Seibu: Postponed. ...I'll finish it eventually...
  • Project Cycle: TBA
  • Utsunomiya Project: Postponed.
  • Tōhoku Project: Postponed. Postponed.
  • Sagami (Sōtetsu) Railway Project: Postponed.

  • Tōbu Railway Project: Postponed.
  • Tōkyū Railway Project: Postponed.
  • Keisei Railway Project: Postponed.

I am using Google Earth to map out many of these places; it's quite a daunting task, but it really does help me create a better article for Wikipedia!

Completed Projects[edit]

Haha, there were only two stations on the railway system, so, yeah it was done in less than an hour. ^_^
