Hi, I'm Nate. My primary contributions are copyediting and finding pages that should be deleted. I've also been known to shrink large graphics with pngcrush (http://pmt.sourceforge.net/pngcrush/) to save Wikipedia a few bytes. I've written several pages about my hometown, Portland, Oregon.

Pages I've worked on

Pet peeves

  • "Hedging" by making articles purposely vague ("Some people believe...", "Many people would say that...").
  • Captializing every Noun.
  • Huge lists.
  • Linking every possible[?] word. Relevant words should be linked; for everything else there's the search function! (and Wikipedia's not Everything2)

Favorite subjects (no, I'm not an expert on these)

Favorite advice for using Wikipedia

In Mozilla Firebird, create a bookmark to the following URL: /w/wiki.phtml?search=%s. In the bookmark properties set the keyword to w. Now you can instantly search Wikipedia by typing w subject in your address bar. If you press Alt+Enter you'll even get the Wikipedia page in a new tab.
