I edited here actively from 2006 to 2008. I got nostalgic and decided to come back. I don't know how long I might stay.

I have my B.A. in ancient history, and my goal is to make articles relating to Ancient Egypt look professional. This means I'm something of a stickler when it comes to demanding hard, peer reviewed reliable sources. I apologize in advance for deleting your skeleton warriors, but...

"The Wikipedia philosophy can be summed up thusly: `Experts are scum.` For some reason people who spend 40 years learning everything they can about, say, the Peloponnesian War -- and indeed, advancing the body of human knowledge -- get all pissy when their contributions are edited away by Randy in Boise who heard somewhere that sword-wielding skeletons were involved. And they get downright irate when asked politely to engage in discourse with Randy until the sword-skeleton theory can be incorporated into the article without passing judgment." [1]

The Tireless Contributor Barnstar

For your amazing work on the article Ahmose I, which passed both GA and FA without a single oppose, I award you the Tireless Contributor barstar. Wear it with pride, for you most certainly deserved it! — Editor at Large(speak) 14:06, 22 November 2006 (UTC)
