Hello, this is Stevey7788 (talk · contribs)! But you can just call me "Steve". I'd like to expand and improve Wikipedia, and I have a variety of interests here. Currently, I am particularly interested in the languages of Southeast Asia and Mesoamerica.

Wikipedia is not just one of the best reference tools ever created — it's a great place where everybody can get together, form a community, and write an online encyclopedia together. Wikipedia is a great place on the Internet, but it's not 100% perfect. Go RC!.

Some of my current tasks on Wikipedia include:

  • The usual task of reading, writing, and rewriting articles. I do mainly the cleanup, grammar fixes, section moving, racist tone check/cleanup, and other work.
  • RC patroling, sometimes new page patroling
  • Creating redirects and disambiguation pages. Currently, I mainly split or merge pages.
  • Patroling the Sandbox -- raking out content, putting headers back, fishing out offensive content, checking for vandalism
  • Dealing with vandals and warning them
  • Welcoming new users and being part of the Kindness Campaign

Anyways, please feel free to edit or improve my page any way you'd like. I'd really be pleased if someone would help re-organize my page for me. :)



As of August 2005, my total edits amounted to approximately 4500 edits. [1]

What I've done on Wikipedia[edit]

A lot to do, and more to do. All voluntary and often when I'm bored.

Contributions list[edit]

Used to be mainly minor edits and tedious work. Due to the images I have uploaded recently, you may see my contributions list clogged up with uploaded images.

Before April 2005, redirects were marked as minor edits.

A few examples of the work I've done on Wikipedia[edit]

As of now I'm doing lots of work on linguistics and languages.

Redirects are cheap, fun, and
easier than votes for deletion!

Other stuff I had done:

  • Massive stub-sorting
  • Patroling the Sandbox
  • Welcoming new users
  • Warning vandals
  • The map project

Stevey7788's map project[edit]

The big map project some of you noticed I have launched on Wikipedia:

I, FP, in my official capacity as nobody-in-particular, hereby bestow upon you, Stevey7788, the mighty and presigious Atlas Award for your dedicated and ongoing work to ensure that one of Wikipedia's most visible pages — the Sandbox — is sanitary, inoffensive, tidy and welcoming to new Wikipedians.

"The Atlas Award For Raking the Sandbox Clean may be awarded to those who have gone above and beyond the call of duty in fishing disgusting and unwanted items from the Wikipedia sandbox. The Atlas award is named after Charles Atlas and is taken from his 'they kicked sand in my face' advertisement, and is in no way merely a masculine image. It is a symbol of self-empowerment. Charles Atlas was once a self-styled 98-pound weakling, and through his own diligence and effort, became a very succesful businessman and body builder. And his business empire began with the ad that this image is from."

Well done. -- FP <talk><edits> 06:44, May 12, 2005 (UTC)

My beginnings on Wikipedia[edit]

Even though I wasn't ever welcomed, I was welcoming others later!

As a newbie on Wiki, I was amused when somebody wrote a short autobiography on my user page: All about Steve the Vandal

Wikipedia's lexical companion

I am also a very active Wiktionarian. Lexical companions to online encyclopedias can really be quite fun.


This is a toolbox containing various resources and links. Please improve and expand it for me if you'd like to — this is not a "no-edit" zone.
