20 years on Wikipedia!

During December 2022, I celebrated the completion of twenty years on Wikipedia. Once again, I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank the entire Wikipedia team and family and my many fellow editors for giving me the opportunity to use my time productively by allowing me to contribute from my education, knowledge, experience and skills to this amazing project over twenty very productive years. Thank you so much to everyone concerned and a special thank you to the many readers who utilize this encyclopedia. Feel free to leave a message at: User:IZAK/awards#20 years in 2022.

Personal disclaimer

Having either initiated or made contributions to many articles and categories I DO NOT undertake to GUARANTY or provide a GUARANTEE whatsoever for their reliability and Kosher contents ("fitness") according to certain people's conceptions of Halacha - (Halakha - Jewish Law) because this is Wikipedia and other editors may freely add/subtract/change/cancel/modify/redirect and otherwise perform a variety of editorial functions, which is their right in this forum, so that articles must never be taken as the definitive "last word" on any subject! Therefore, ALL readers must use their own personal discretion as to what they would personally agree or disagree with, and, must assume their own FULL responsibility for whatever they may read anywhere on Wikipedia or in related external links.
