==About Me==
+
I am a thirtysomething guy living in [[Pennsylvania]].  I love to play music, and have the ability to play several instruments (guitar, saxophone, trumpet, piano, bass guitar)I am registered [[Democrat]], although my political compass is rather centered.  I have a bachelor's degree in [[Chemistry]], with minor in [[Biology]], which I earned at the [[University of Pittsburgh]]. I currently work as a metallurgist.  There was a time where it was very hard to balance my science and my religion, where one cast doubt on the other.  One of my biology teachers in college brought things into perspective.  He is a scientist who teaches biology (which would include evolution, which he only brushed on), but he is also an elder in his Church (Presbyterian, if I recall).  Over some discussions, I was able to resolve the differences between the two extremities.

==My Focus at Conservapedia==
+
 
+
I will be focusing more on standardizing the pages, categories, and whatnot to make the encyclopedia more streamlined.   
+
 
+
==Current Project==
+
 
+
I am working on categorization of categories so there is a better workflow that readers and editors may follow to find a specific subcategory, and ultimately a specific page.  This begins by placing individual pages in subcategories where possible.  Also I am helping to maintain the rosters of the [[NHL]], [[NFL]], [[NBA]], and [[MLB]] and will make appropriate adjustments to them as trades or signings occur.
+
 
+
Also, I'm attempting to make a list of [[User:WesleyS/Governors|governors]] for each state. Done!  Again!!  Well, I've still got to add the pre-statehood governorsfor several states, then I'll be done.  I then plan on writing articles for some of the important governors of American history.
+
 
+
And, I've been asked to assist in creating some pages for National Hockey League Players.  I love my hockey, so that sounds like fun!
+
 
+
I'm trying to file through the [[Special:LonelyPages|Orphaned Pages]] to get them some homes. Only 3400 more to go!

Pretty sheltered, no? I plan to travel, as I've recently devloped a taste for flying.  I'd like to go to Japan, and a tour of Europe would be nice as well.  I do, however, have quite a collection of coins from all over the world, currently at 278 countries/provinces (some now defunct, a la East Germany) and some aren't even countries yet (a la Kurdistan). I'd put up the pictures of the flags, but there are far too many, and I have work to do.

Revision as of 15:11, 29 March 2009

After much thought, I have decided to leave Conservapedia. Fully knowing the scope of the site when I signed up, and myself being of a slightly liberal bent, I thought I could co-exist with very strong conservative notions. Realizing that I cannot, and that I cannot seem to compromise my own beliefs, I must leave. I hope that my edits have been useful to Conservapedia. I believe this site can be a viable option to Wikipedia. I also hope that I’ve shown that someone with liberal tendencies can be useful as well. To all editors with whom I have been in contact, good luck to you and all of your future endeavors, and feel free to email me. God Bless!
