I make a lot of minor edits and do general copy editing. I sometimes, albeit rarely, participate in talk pages. When I do, my posts tend to be prolix. If you see a lot of green bytes with my username attached to it, that is probably me either filling out some citations or posting a talk page message. Though I may be frustrating at times, please go easy on me and remember that I have the best intentions in mind. If any edit of mine appears to be mistaken or incorrect, let me know; I invite criticism, which informs and improves my editing.

As a note, my precisionism is descriptive, not prescriptive. I do not always behave like a precisionist, nor should one expect me to be arguing from a precisionist perspective.

If you mention me anywhere in a discussion, please be sure to notify me. This is especially appreciated if I am not in the discussion, if the discussion is about me, and you do not have good reason to believe I am already aware of it. Thank you.

Tip of the day...

What are portals? "Doorways to knowledge." Wikipedia's coverage of subjects can be extensive (mathematics, for example, is covered by tens of thousands of articles on Wikipedia). Portals each provide an alternative entry to a subject (besides its main article), and to that subject's coverage in the encyclopedia, in a way similar to how the Main Page provides sample fair from Wikipedia as a whole.

To do so, portals present various features, which may include Selected article sections, Selected image sections, news, points of interest (Did you know?, Anniversaries), and links to related Wikimedia. Portals are more diverse than the Main page, and may include features that it does not, such as panoramic banners, slide shows, category trees, topics lists, and whatever else portal designers can come up with.

A secondary purpose of portals is to provide bridges between reading and editing, and between the encyclopedia and the Wikipedia community. They may provide links to the related WikiProjects, Wikipedia's Reference desk, and so on.

Portals are a hybrid between encyclopedia pages and project pages, and occupy their own special namespace, the Portal namespace. Therefore, all portal titles are preceded by the prefix "Portal:"

The list of all completed portals is Portal:Contents/Portals. A list of all portals, including those under construction, can be found at Category:All portals.

The Portals WikiProject is dedicated to collaboratively building and maintaining portals, and further expanding on the Portal concept, such as with automated features, and is always looking for new participants.
