I've made some edits from the IPs: (talk · contribs · WHOIS), (talk · contribs · WHOIS), (talk · contribs · WHOIS), (talk · contribs · WHOIS) and (talk · contribs · WHOIS) but won't be making any substantial additions using these accounts. Before I knew about WP:V and WP:RS I made an edit from (talk · contribs · WHOIS), which I think was my first ever edit.

One day I found out about WP:NEWT which seemed a good idea at the time. I made User:Organismluvva and created some stubs which were waiting in my to do list. I didn't think it would cause so many problems...

  The Defender of the Wiki Barnstar
This Defender of the Wiki Barnstar is for Smartse who has been a voice of reason and an excellent judge of character in regards to a sticky situation involving the 42 Entertainment article. Without your help and guidance, the article would continue to be vandalized and full of PR speak. I thank you ever so much. Argguy (talk) 01:57, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
