I spend most of my time on Wikipedia looking for vandals to report, and bad edits to undo. Anyway, I hope my work helps.

As for my signature - if you want to know what it is about, listen to The Adam and Joe Show on BBC 6Music. (grin)

And to answer the almost inevitable next question - I'm not related to Adam (or Joe).

Tip of the Day[edit]

Tip of the day...

The lead section

The lead section is the text before the first heading.

In the source text (the text in the edit window), a heading looks like this:

== This is a heading ==

The lead section is a very important part of every article. The length should correspond to the overall length of the article: an article of 50,000 characters might well have a three paragraph lead, while one of 15,000 or less should limit itself to one or two paragraphs. The text itself should give a good overview of the article, but it should also get the reader hooked and interested in learning more. Take a look at some featured articles for inspiration.

It's often a good idea to align a representative image with the lead by placing [[Image:Filename.jpg|thumb|caption]] just before the section. (Where Filename is the name of the desired file and caption is a description of the image.).
