Flickr - …trialsanderrors - Madam Ada Castello and Jupiter, poster for Ringling Brothers, ca. 1899.jpg
The Ringling Brothers Circus was founded in the American city of Baraboo, Wisconsin, in 1884 by five of the seven Ringling brothers. In 1907 the brothers acquired the Barnum & Bailey Circus, merging it with their original circus in 1919 to form the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, promoted as The Greatest Show on Earth and operated until 2017.

This is a poster for the circus produced around 1899 by the Coach Lithographic Company of Buffalo, New York.

Been here a while now, on and off. I mostly enjoy dealing with the technical aspects of Wikipedia, though I will of course add content when it is within my field of expertise. But mostly it's about improving the users experience, be it through disambiguation, visual improvements of drawings, or vandalism-cleanup.

Pages in need of attention[edit]

During my work on disambiguation or during general wikipedia browsing, I have found these pages that I want to give some attention. They'll be listed here so I don't forget about them before I have a large enough continous free time-block to do something about them. Once a page has been done, it will be removed from the list (ideally it should stay empty):

Semi-adopted disambiguation pages[edit]

Having cleaned these out, I might as well visit them every now and then to nip new build-ups in the bud:
