I am listed at Wikipedia:List of Wikipedians by featured article nominations for the successful nomination of Baby Gender Mentor and [[2005 Texas Longhorn 2005 Texas Longhorn football team to FA status.

Notes:

  1. ^ "Rating" will list if the article has made GA or FA. I may also include other rankings like "A" and "stub".
  2. ^ "Major contribution" is a judgment call. Here I will state whether I think I made a major contribution to the article or not. Note that this does not mean I claim to be the major contributor. This is subjective of course. You are welcome to disagree about the impact of my contribution; and of course articles change such that it is essentially impossible to ever say how much of an article was written by whom.
  3. ^ "Added image" - this means I found an image somewhere and added it to the article, following our image use guidelines of course. It could be a fair-use image that can properly be used in the article. It could be an image I found on the Commons or elsewhere in Wikipedia.
  4. ^ "Free image" - this means I actually created an image (usually a photograph), released it under a free license, and added it to the article.
  5. ^ "Saved" means I helped save the article from deletion. Usually by arguing in its behalf on AfD and/or improving the article to make it worthy of keeping.

Useful quote:

...as a general rule, I think that almost any argument, on any topic, which has premises beginning with "Jimbo said..." is a pretty weak argument. Surely the merits of the proposal should be primary, not what I happen to think."[2] - Jimbo Wales
