Hi. My username, if you're wondering, is induction-inspired. You'll probably find me on a math-, science-, or meteorology-related article, but I also patrol Category:Candidates for speedy deletion for unspecified reason somewhat frequently and specify the reason based on the provided description in the CSD template. For some reason, I have recently become obsessed with improving Wikipedia's categorization of chemical compounds. Past obsessions have included improving Wikipedia's usage of SMILES, Wikipedia's coverage of acids and bases, Wikipedia's coverage of the peninsulas around the Laurentian Great Lakes, and Wikipedia's coverage of tropical cyclones.
