Warning: Wikipedia contains spoilers

In the wikiworld, I'm nobody of consequence, which is quite nice. I'm also very much a newbie, so please, be nice, if at all possible. I don't respond well to brusque rudeness; if you take the time to say something, then say it well.

This page is mostly for me to keep track of what I'm doing. If you want to have fun, go the Hades article and remove all the darned looping redirects with actual articles. Dispater is not Hades. Neither is Eubuleus, or Pluto (god), really. Plus, looping redirects are just a really bad idea. See Wikipedia:redirect

Random thought of the day: threatening to delete a page is the best way to ensure its survival. See maroon, Cave painting, and oh, just about anything.
