Hey there, I'm RyanCross (talk · contribs), a Wikipedian. I first started contributing to the English Wikipedia during mid February 2008 when I saw that "Log in / create account" link. I wondered, "What would it be like to have an account on Wikipedia, one of the most popular websites in the world?" After creating my account, I was amazed and astonished having known that I can actually edit and change Wikipedia articles, making it visible across the Internet and the world. From there, I decided to stick around Wikipedia. Even today, I'm still contributing to this site, and hope to continue doing so, helping to make this world a better place, one edit at a time.
