Why am I here?[edit]

I created this account to help with the Tennis articles; which relate to the Tennis Portal. I am eclectic in my interests, with a few strong points here and there. (Ibid. Avicennasis) I am appalled at general vandalism as much as overzealous editors. I have been known to make updates in any of the categories listed on the right.

Wikipedian Status: Member since October, 2005. Active since January, 2006 (11 years, 234 days). What have I done? Edit Count: 3900+

Quinn's Tools[edit]

Tools: WP:Huggle, WP:AWB, WP:ROLLBACK, Wikipedia:WikiProject Check Wikipedia

Vandalism[edit]

  1. Revert first, then discuss
  2. Use the Warn function in WP:Huggle, even for IP's - so they can be blocked.

WikiProject Banners[edit]

  1. Every article should have one; usually more. The more eyes, the better the article.
    1. If more than 3; place {{WikiProjectBannerShell}}; If WPBIO then add blp=yes to the shell
  2. WP Banner Order
    1. If WPBio, then move it to first position. Take a famous tennis player; WPBio, Then Tennis, Then country of birth. Then state if US, Cities if they have a "Category:Sports people from {cityname}"
    2. if Museum: Museum, then {art|tech|natural}, then country, maybe city

Templates[edit]

  • Fix Infobox categories; add WP banners
  • Fix Navbox categories; add WP banners

Projects[edit]

I have a number of projects in which I have an interest. I have not joined them all. I am still learning about Portals, Projects, Templates and Categories; how they currently work and generally making sure that my areas of interest are up to standards and correct data-wise when possible.

List of projects: (in order of joining)

Areas in which I have an interest[edit]

  2. Rebuild Template:WikiProject Tennis from a custom template to a WPBannerMeta standard template (see Sandbox).
  3. Assess articles: Category:Unknown-importance_tennis_articles

How to link to a category

To add a link to a category in an article (as opposed to adding the article to a category) create a normal link to the category page but place a colon at the beginning of it, just after the double opening square brackets. Here's an example:

To provide a link to Category:Animals (just like this one), add the text [[:Category:Animals]] where you want the link to appear. (Notice the extra colon at the beginning of the link).

To add this auto-updating template to your user page, use {{totd}}
