Wikipedia-logo-v2.svg This user spends WAY too much time on Wikipedia and really needs to get off the computer... after one more edit.

Hello Wikipedians! My name is Steve (which is what I am known by on a first-name basis) and this is my user page. After nearly 9 years a member here, this page has mostly been a collection of userboxes and an infobox, with not much else, but I intend to work give this page some attention some day.

For a list of what I have done on Wikipedia thus far, check here. Although I visit many articles all over Wikipedia (which can be very hard to pry oneself away from), most of my editing is concentrated on transportation-related articles here.

I do consider myself an a point. While it is true that Wiki is not paper, computer memory and bandwidth are finite; articles still have to load onto a computer. Also, adding meaningful contributions to an article (either already referenced and verified or with high capability for doing so) beats adding random information that will just sit there. Despite this, I still feel there is a place for trivia sections in an article. Why? In some cases, the format is the best way for presenting that information and re-writing the article to remove the trivia section could actually detract from the quality of the article. Sometimes, simpler is also better as well.

If I were to give someone anything in terms of advice, I would start with this: if you are looking to start out here, it is OK to start small with something that you are interested in. If there has been a long-standing typo in the article about your hometown, almost no one will fault you for fixing small things like that. Although there are plenty of tutorials, sometimes it is best to gain experience with the actual source code that makes up the encyclopedia. Another piece: when making larger changes (beyond fixing typos, for example), there will be those who will see things differently from your perspective; always use the edit summaries and talk pages to explain these as much as possible (to minimize the risk of having your changes rolled back).
