Hello, Jim Becker, and welcome to Wikipedia. Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. If you are stuck, and looking for help, please come to the New contributors' help page, where experienced Wikipedians can answer any queries you have! Or, you can just type {{helpme}} on your user page, and someone will show up shortly to answer your questions. Here are a few good links for newcomers:

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! By the way, you can sign your name on Talk and vote pages using three tildes, like this: ~~~. Four tildes (~~~~) produces your name and the current date. If you have any questions, see the help pages, add a question to the village pump or ask me on my talk page. Again, welcome!

Thanks for your edit to DECUS. As someone who benefitted greatly from DECUS, I like to see improvements to that article.

A minor point: you "linkified" some years ("1998" → "[1998]" etc). You may not be aware that there is some debate on Wikipedia about doing that. See Wikipedia:Manual of Style (dates and numbers)#dates for (lots and lots of) details. (Wikipedia is a big project, with lots of rules and conventions. BTW, we encourage people to start editing and learn as they go along; you are not expected to read and understand all our rules first.)
