Since then Giggy has plodded along, creating Last Will and Testament of Augustus Hare and A Description of the Morning, working on the collaboration for Author:Karl Marx, adding headers, collaborating on Author:William Lyon Mackenzie King, starting and completing The Endeavour Journal of Sir Joseph Banks, collaborating on Author:Søren Kierkegaard, welcoming people from other projects and other new users, answering anon users politely, archiving WS:PD and WS:COPYVIO, collaborating on Author:John Masefield, adding a few works by Author:John Ruskin and Author:Alfred Tennyson for some unknown reason, filling in textinfo because he is bored, reverting inappropriate edits by anons, alerting Danny that he is up for re-election, improving formatting, identifying copyvios and notifying the contributor, cleaning up after admins and newcomers, creating Skinner v. Oklahoma and subpages, notifying the community of meta issues, inquiring about page blanking, creating A Continuation of a Voyage to New Holland, collaborating on Author:Barack Obama and contributing most of the works for related author Author:Ron Paul, adding A Letter to American Boys, doing copying and pasting for Index:Personal Recollections of Joan of Arc.djvu and Index:Thus Spake Zarathustra - Thomas Common - 1917.djvu, fixing some of the pages listed on User:SQL/Namespace 0 pages that probably have reference problems, upgraded Author:Banjo Paterson to a "featured author" type page and bringing the most important work Waltzing Matilda up to grade required to be a Featured text candidate. He also proofread texts that are candidates.].
And that is only about two thirds of Giggys edits here; enough to demonstrate he has a good understanding of Wikisource the project. In addition he is regularly on IRC, and is also a crat on Commons. John Vandenberg (chat) 08:41, 24 August 2008 (UTC)
