Major Contributions[edit]

Currently I have over 15,000 edits to my name, of which I would consider nearly half to be of good quality. (I am able to sleep at night due to the comforting thought that the good edits almost certainly greatly surpass the bad ones in terms of the amount of text added.) Given that I first joined Wikipedia at the age of 16, I am quite embarrassed by virtually all of my edits during 2010–2012, as they contained a great deal of WP:PROFRINGE, WP:COPYVIO, or simply WP:POV material (some of which I later tried to fix). I have only been consistently doing work that I can take pride in since mid-2014 (video games) or 2016 (international politics/history), though there are exceptions (I still believe that I raised many good points during the 2014 Israel–Gaza conflict, even if my additions were not always perfectly neutral). The articles above represent my most sustained contributions to the project. They may well need additional work or contain errors not apparent to me at this time (after all, I recently spotted a "big mistake" in CIA activities in Iraq), but I'm confident that they are in better shape as a result of my efforts than they were before, which is something.

Congrats on your 13,000 edits. Don't agree with you on anything (almost), but the stamina and dedication required to hit 13k edits are not to be sniffed at. BowlAndSpoon (talk) 20:08, 15 October 2016 (UTC)
