Featured ArticlesEdit

  • Tenebrae   I wrote the article from scratch and further expanded/tweaked it based on suggestions made during a peer review. It was featured on Wikipedia's Main Page on May 27, 2006, at which time it suddenly became hit by a concentrated orgy of juvenile vandalism. Several alert editors kept reverting back to my version of the article. My thanks to them!
  • Witchfinder General   Completely rewritten and greatly expanded from its former stub status. Thanks to all who copyedited and/or made valuable suggestions as to how to improve the article.
  • The Pit and the Pendulum   One of my favorite films. I created the article in June of 2006 and, after peer review and numerous tweaks, it was promoted to Good Article status in February 2007. After additional expansion, it was submitted for FA consideration on June 15, 2007 and subsequently promoted to FA on June 28, 2007.

Good ArticleEdit

  • Aguirre, the Wrath of God  I've greatly expanded/tweaked this beyond its initial stub-level quality. The article was nominated for Good Article status by Alientraveller, and after several helpful improvements suggested by Doctor Sunshine were incorporated, it was promoted to GA. Special thanks to Erik, who provided me w/numerous scholarly articles to utilize for any future expansion of the article.
