Hello, I'm 1ST7. I first registered for Wikipedia in March 2013 and started out working primarily on the NCIS-related articles. Nowadays, I like to edit a number of different subjects and tend to jump from topic to topic. I love to read, so articles that relate to works of literature are among my favorite to work on.

One of the reasons I like editing Wikipedia is because I often learn different things while looking for references to add to articles. So, in a way, it's kind of educational. Face-smile.svg

Notice: My Internet access is not very good right now, so there might be occasions when I cannot respond to other editors in a timely manner. I apologize in advance for any delays.

GA, FA, & DYKEdit

These are the articles I've helped improve to FA, GA, or DYK status. My first long-term goal on Wikipedia was to get the articles on the books by Khaled Hosseini (The Kite Runner, A Thousand Splendid Suns, And the Mountains Echoed) to GA status. The project began in July and was completed on December 12.

Editor of the week barnstar.svg Editor of the Week
Your ongoing efforts to improve the encyclopedia have not gone unnoticed: You have been selected as Editor of the Week, for excellent content work even as a newer Wikipedian. Thank you for the great contributions! (courtesy of the Wikipedia Editor Retention Project)
Barnstar of Diligence Hires.pngThis user has declined one or more awards, given for minor efforts, in recognition of those who have earned them for their great efforts.
Noticed you are not one to take credit when you feel it is not due you. Not many people will, or can, do that it seems. Though this only involves an item on a greater award, the same sense of integrity was nonetheless exhibited. Salute! -- Gwillhickers 18:04, 1 October 2013 (UTC)
