These are areas I was previously working on, but for one reason or another I lost interest in. I mostly keep these here for my own reference, in case I get the urge to follow up on anything.

  1. I spent a lot of time researching to rewrite Suwannaphum synchronizing and expanding all articles connected with Mon history, kingdoms, languages and culture (Mon state, Dvaravati, Thaton, Nyah Kur etc). Articles were either stubs and/or contradictory in facts, dates, names, etc. My ambitious plan was to, after improving these articles, link them to a main Mon article, (Mon people?) as daughter articles.
  2. I was very busy writing articles relating to Clan MacThomas and their historical lands, battles and allegiances. Lots of research and time involved!
  3. I created articles related to Free Will Baptists and their history and populated the (then-new) category. Also very time-consuming!

Vandalism to this pageEdit

vn-7This user page has been vandalized 7 times.

My favorite one: Under "to do" list, somebody inserted "Grow a sense of humor". It's more than a little ironic considering how funny I found that to be.
