This user is a WikiGnome

After being very active from June 2010 to June 2012, I got a disillusioned with Wikipedia and suffering from a severe case of Wikistress, I took a long Wikibreak. It is now June 2017 and I am trying to return, hopefully managing this time to care less. We will see.

The page below is my five years old user page. Much of it is irrelevant, but I'm keeping it because... well, I don't care. You can treat it as a page in history or ignore it altogether. Did I say already how much I care?

Muhandes is a WikiGnome, mostly involved with gnomish activities. Muhandes delved into some subjects in the past, e.g. lighthouses, higher education in India and certifications of music recordings. Still, most of his contributions were made since some other activity prompted it.

This is mainly a huge To-Do list, reminding Muhandes of what he wants to do, and what he already did. Please don't treat it harshly, it's just a big pile of links and wikilinks.



  • I check My Watchlist quite often. It includes every page I ever edited, so I catch some vandalism on less patrolled pages. I remove pages from the watchlist when I see other people are patrolling them.

Correct Disambiguation pages with links[edit]

I mostly just choose random acronyms and correct them. Whenever I do, I adopt. Thanks Wiki Cleaner for making this so easy:

Where I've Been[edit]

These are just places I actually stayed more than a day in. For instance, driving coast-to-coast, I probably stepped in several other US states. I also had transfer flights in several other I don't count.
