My first encounter with wiki editing was on Wikipedia about 2003. I did a lot of edits there, and I still do some editing there; you can see my user page on Wikipedia for a more detailed description of myself.
More recently, however, I have grown tired of the direction which Wikipedia has taken, with endless disputes over notability and whether a source is reliable. More and more I have turned to the specialized encyclopedias on Wikia as a way to avoid these disputes.
I currently am an administrator of six wikis on Wikia:
- This wiki, Radio-TV Broadcast History, which I founded in January 2006,
- Metro Wiki, which I adopted around the end of that same year,
- WikiCheese, on which I was given administrator status after a short time, but adopted only recently in November 2011,
- Sausage Wiki, which I adopted in December 2011,
- Units of Measurement Wiki, which I adopted on Feb. 28, 2012, and
- Calendar Wiki, which I adopted most recently, on Mar. 8, 2012.
There are also a few wikis I contribute to:
- Armchair GM, which I was much more involved with when it first began, but still occasionally visit,
- Currency Wiki, which I'm only now beginning to get involved with, and
- WikiTea, which besides the six I am an administrator on, gets most of my attention. -- BruceG 16:51, January 1, 2012 (UTC)
