Should one not make edits about a subject he dislikes, even if the edits are still credible?  If I tune into the USC games every week with the intention of rooting against them, and yet still make periodic touchups to the team's Wikipedia page... is that a form of hypocrisy? :P

My most recent project has been creating state postal abbreviation redirects for articles about small towns that don't yet have them.  They're easy to make and I can make them in about a second.  Frankly, making them puts me in a sort of rhythm that relaxes me. :P

 

The scary thing is that the names of these towns are REAL. :P

Really? Because I was more curious to visit the Satans Kingdom in a state that I can personally attest is usually very heavenly. :P

EDIT: Yes, I realize now I put Morales's name where Ventura's should be; don't worry, I corrected it on the actual page. :P2ylsfa0.jpg

I emptied out my sandbox (in which Wikipedia users are allowed to put pretty much anything that they want), and this message was live on Wikipedia for everyone to see for about ... five minutes. :P   But it shall be preserved and archived here for all eternity!

 

EDIT: I have now restored the page to its original content, albeit with an explanatory note and a link back to here. :P

I am shocked by how ill-prepared the NBA game logs are for the start of the season.  Most of them are still completely empty after the first few games in October.  I've been going all around the league inputting at least the next three or four games for each team into these empty game logs so that at least they'll be ready to receive the results over the next week or so.  Hopefully someone will start to realize and put all the teams' full schedules in, because heaven knows I don't have time to. :dunno:

I'm trying to write an article for The Little Guy but I've put it in my sandbox for now until I can get it better organized and written in full. Hopefully when it's ready for article mainspace the powers that be will deem it notable enough and not delete it.

So here's a bit of a belated Throwback Thursday for ya...

 

Tonight's Republican debate reminded me that back in 2012, I actually wrote some for the article about the Obama-Romney debates, if you can believe that.  Below is one of those edits I found from back then (text I added is in blue).  A whole election cycle later, that text I added remains almost unchanged on the live version of that page today:

And here's an edit that really takes me back, just for the fun of it: the Ducks game log as it appeared after the first edit I ever made to it, following a game five years ago TODAY! (just realized that as I was typing it) against the then-Phoenix, now-Arizona Coyotes.  I made a couple small errors back then, such as not knowing to use endashes and forgetting the @ sign for a road game, but otherwise I think it turned out pretty well for a first try, don't you? :)

Welp... I started this article way back five years ago, and I now have to be the one to add the sad news about its name change, along with the blasphemous name changes of properties all throughout Yosemite National Park, names that in some cases have existed for over one hundred years.

Welp, it's that time of year again!  Here was my first hockey playoff Wikipedia edit of the season, for Game 1 of the Panthers-Islanders series.   The Panthers made the playoffs in 2012, the first year I adopted their lonesome game log, and even though it took them four long years I can't express my delight that they're finally back in again!  (Off to a bit of a rocky start, though, as you can see.)  I'll be editing the Ducks page, too, of course; their playoff series begins tomorrow.

 

I would tell you not to judge the tabbed song in this one but of course you already have.  :P

 

I need to update this thread more often!!!
