HELLO Heading here, but remove 'display: none;' on row (above; leave just '|-')
Hi, I'm Alyo (he/him, formerly User:Nolelover), and I used to edit a lot. Unfortunately I don't have as much time as I used to, so my activity is limited to fixing whatever little errors I come across in my standard Wikipedia usage and a couple of pet projects. Feel free to ping me on my talk page or email me if necessary.
Both "Created" and "Improved" are in chronological order.
The Excellent User Page Award I heard (or saw, whichever) that you really want a barnstar, and I think that your userpage is really pretty, so I award you the "Excellent User Page" award. Cheers! Wilhelmina Will (talk) 02:48, 22 October 2010 (UTC)
The Reviewer Barnstar Thanks for tackling the GAN fixes on 2010 ACC Championship Game while I was on vacation. I really appreciate what you did, and wanted to let you know that your work was seen and appreciated. Keep up the great work! JKBrooks85 (talk) 17:20, 30 March 2011 (UTC)
The Barnstar of Diligence For your great work on the article Ehsan Sehgal, with great attention to detail in regards to references. I award you this Barnstar! Ehsan Sehgal (talk) 17:01, 18 August 2011 (UTC)
The Cleanup Barnstar Thanks for your removal of cruft, etc. from Cody Martin! I had been trying to remove cruft a couple months ago, but I had hit a roadblock where I wasn't sure what warranted removal and what should have been kept. However, after you removed those things, I realized just how crufty they were (I'm weird like that). Anyway, thanks again! - Purplewowies (talk) 16:34, 11 January 2012 (UTC)

The Tireless Contributor Barnstar
Thank you for getting the cleanup process started. Cleaning up years worth of original research is not an easy task, and probably requires an expert touch. I appreciate you stepping up to the plate. –Novem Linguae (talk) 13:27, 27 December 2021 (UTC)
For a less beginner-friendly but more comprehensive list of tasks on Wikipedia, see Wikipedia:Maintenance.
Welcome to the Wikipedia Task Center!
What do Wikipedians do?
If you are looking for a way to help, find a task that suits you, read the appropriate background pages, and be bold.
And if you are here for the fuzzy feeling, stand back and marvel at the range of work that is done daily by other Wikipedians.
Pages need to be put into categories so that the public can more easily find them. Help search the new pages feed and the Uncategorized Pages category in order to find pages to categorize. Add categories to articles with too few categories.
Help to verify articles' information, add sources, and fix links.
Sometimes, editors add information without adding sources to back it up. And sometimes sources get old and links no longer work (known as "linkrot"). Your job will be to add sources, verify content, and repair linkrot.
See Wikipedia as it really is, and learn a lot of random information.
Random article patrol is a chance to appreciate how good (and how lacking) Wikipedia is. It can be a soothing experience, especially after tedious maintenance tasks. As a bonus, it can be a great training tool to sharpen your knowledge if you're a trivia buff or are scheduled to appear on Jeopardy! Just go to random pages and fix what you can.
Sometimes, users cannot edit a page because it is protected, or they should not because they have a conflict of interest with its subject. Review their edit requests, implementing the good ones and rejecting the less-than-good ones.
Wikipedia gets thousands of edits per day—unfortunately, many of these are vandalism. As a Recent Changes Patroller, you are the first line of defense against such abuse, ensuring that readers of Wikipedia are not faced with vandalized content where they expected to find a useful article.
Sometimes articles need to be combined or separated by hand.
Help merge articles by adding a redirect and copying and pasting or help split an article by removing content and pasting it into a new article. When merging, follow attribution rules to ensure copyright compliance.
Help delete spam articles before the public sees them.
Some people, either acting in good faith or maliciously, create new articles which aren't suitable for inclusion on Wikipedia. By participating in new article patrol you can ensure that these articles are deleted as soon as possible.
Help edit and nominate articles or review nominations of articles for good article status.
Find potentially good articles and work on them for a while to bring them up to a high standard. Then nominate them for Good Article status. You can also review good article nominations and critique them.
Help nominate or review nominations of articles for the penultimate featured article status.
Upgrade articles and work on them for a long time to bring them up to a very high standard, until they deserve to be featured on the main page. Then, get peer review and nominate them for Featured Article status. You can also critique feature article nominations. Obtaining featured article status is considered to be one of the most prized achievements in Wikipedia.
Come to receive or post reward listings for editing tasks.
The Rewards Board is a place where anyone can come to either post a task that they want done in exchange for a reward or to fulfill a task in exchange for a reward. The rewards offered are mostly barnstars but some people offer items or money for their tasks.
Help editors come to a consensus with minimal conflict.
Providing unbiased commentary is a great chance to improve your Wiki-relations. Instead of debating, you can read the arguments of opposing editors and suggest a compromise that is in Wikipedia’s best interest. By doing so, you will learn a lot about the policies.
