User:The Rambling Man
|This user is busy in real life and may not respond swiftly to queries.|
I am The Rambling Man. I've been about a bit, not as much as The Ramblin' Man (nor as long as The Running Man) but I've done my time. I first edited Wikipedia in May 2005 with a small modification to Harold Faltermeyer. The rest, as they say, is history. As of November 2013, I've made around 104,000 edits, some of them useful. I may not be around so much for a bit, that's life.....
Don't forget, we're here to create and improve content, not just sit on the sidelines and criticise football articles or road traffic accidents. Roll your sleeves up, get involved with content, don't just use this is an alternative to Facebook or Twitter; don't snipe from the perimeter, no-one respects that. If you're prepared to say "I do not engage in sarcasm", then don't. Improve the encyclopedia by editing articles and making them better. That's what we're here to do, not just commentate and criticise and stack up bytes of nothingness.
The news crew here need some serious perspective too. There seems to be some kind of arbitrary "expand or bust" on news articles, where a decent publisher would consider quality over quantity. Still, "this is Wikipedia, never mind the quality, look at the girth". Some admins who lurk there make a disproportionate amount of fuss when they're caught making ill-judged decisions...
