My username "WTGDMan1986" comes from the comic series I created, When They Got Distracted, which debuted in 1994. Unfortunately, nobody got to see what I had created, followed by the usual, and the year of my birth.
Dislikes: People with bad attitudes, violence, serial killers, villains (especially serial killers on TV and soap operas, as well as characters who start fistfights), Wikipedia vandalism, spam.
I would like to become a Wikipedia administrator since I HATE vandalism, libel, and slander like villains. They all need to be taught a lesson. If I become one, I'll tell you which portions of a page are worthy and un-note worthy. I will also try my best to block vandalism, as I have done in my 2nd year. To date, I have busted 5 vandals and plan on defeating a few more.

Lists are a valuable presentation format, especially the structured list. Examples include lists organized chronologically, grouped by theme, glossarized, or annotated.
If a user is browsing without a specific research goal in mind, he would likely use the See also lists embedded in articles. If the user has some general idea of what he is looking for but does not know the specific terminology, the general topics lists (outlines and indices) would be most useful.
Outlines and indices give an indication of the state of the 'pedia, the articles that have been written, and the articles that have yet to be written (shown by redlinks).
Like categories, lists are great for keeping track of changes to subject areas, using the Related Changes feature. Unlike categories, lists are centralized, providing direct control over the contents. Lists also allow detection of deletion of pages from them. Another advantage of a list is that changes can be tracked in the page's history, while changes to categories cannot.
