Thoughts on Wikipedia
Sadly, most of this will be incoherent.

Firefox made a great deal with Google, securing funding and not limiting its product by making Google the default searchbar. I think Wikipedia could try something similar. I am generally against advertising because of the many reasons other users have addressed--but I have also never given nor plan on giving money to the project. I edit, that's enough. But with the fears of last funds driving falling short I tried to think of acceptable ways of earning revenue. Grants are nice but not reliable over time. Donors are also unpredictable in giving patterns. And, of course, AdSense type ads give the incentive to manipulate articles.

Why not forge a deal like with Firefox? Google could be the default non-media wiki search. Amazon could be the default ISBN retailer. Hell, Amazon should already thank us for the IMDb link given on almost every movie article. Of course, all of this can be changed and re-ordered in user preferences and any mention of these companies will only appear on "Special:" type pages. But, with Wikipedia on the top 10 sites this should be good for some revenue without harming editorial integrity. I have no idea if this has been proposed before or how much it could actually bring in or whatnot. But, I think this is an acceptable, non-obtrusive means of advertising which could deal with important funding issues. (00:10, 10 May 2008 (UTC))

I like

My primary interest on Wikipedia is religion, especially articles about the People of the Book. I think despite wikipedia's problems, articles like 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake, created with speed show some of the great advantages of this medium. I think it would be nice if the momentum given to such articles could also be given to past events like the 2001 Gujarat Earthquake.

J-pop wiki ^_^, Davy Crockett (nuclear device) (not that I like it...), http://print.google.com/, Hitachi's waste of resources, O_O not sure if like is the best way to put it...

Barnstar, awarded by Anonymous editor to Gren for countless hours of work on Islam-related articles
This list is incomplete — I create stubs; User:Grenavitar/Watchlist:Braglist

Top 5 to be expanded: Ibn Hazm, Chand Raat, Perdurantism, Hitomi Yaida, Leyli and Majnun - or something.

So, if any of these articles are just horrible or worthless send me hate mail. What I like about my list the most is that it can in no way be called a brag list. Look at what I've created, most of them are quite laughable. So, I want to thank others for making my articles nice and shiny.

Hmm, I just translated from French Canton in France... if you really want anything translated I can try, I'm not good and I use aids but I think understand enough for non-complex subject.

Wikipedia:Wikiproject Albums/Needs infobox conversion I think is a good thing for the album project which I occassionally work on.


After responding to this article by Abid Ullah Jan, he posted a follow up response to my e-mailed objections using my e-mail as a footnote but not mentioning my name. People thought I was really cool because I was on Al Jazeera but it was Al-Jazeerah Information Center. In any case, I thought it was pretty cool.
