More about me[edit]

I like anime — my favorite titles include Code Geass, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Cowboy Bebop, Kino's Journey, RahXephon, and My-HiME. There is a page about me in the Creatures Wiki. After many times of hitting the "Random article" link, I have finally run into an article I've seen before (and remember): Shogi.

Banish the shadows of ignorance** (Stuff you should know)[edit]

Insane* Yet Apparently Perfectly Valid Articles[edit]

Moved to its own insane subpage!

Interesting but fairly useless stuff[edit]

Interesting and useful stuff[edit]

*Insane in this context refers to my own feeling of an article's topic. Think "Interesting and weird." Compare and contrast: Wikipedia:Unusual articles.

**Quote taken from part of the subtitle of Eugene A. Calame's Newsgroup Faq (formerly at http://www.geocities.com/eacalame/create/create.html) - "Guides for Creating Newsgroups: The light of knowledge will banish the shadows of ignorance"

General Scratchpad[edit]

My AFD Recommendation Record[edit]

First of all, some notes on why I like to hang out at AFD. I do not consider myself a deletionist. On the contrary, I like reading AFD for the stuff that gets kept. Many of the articles on my "Insane" list above were examined on AFD at one point or another, or brought up as an example in discussion. So basically, I read AFD because interesting stuff comes up there.

On Sept. 12, 2004. My nomination of List of windmills, which at the time was blank, was mentioned on Nooks and Corners of Wikipedia. Although I wish we could have gotten better results on cleanup, the ultimate result was pretty good.
