From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The motto of the mongoose family is "Run and find out."

I love Wikipedia and have been editing for years; for nearly a decade, I edited without logging in unless making a particular edit required me to do so. I'm particularly interested in food issues, including local artisanal foods, food writers, and food history, and in biographies and works of women and people of color, but on a regular basis some other topic sets off an edit binge.

I have an alt account User:TrainerValereee which I created so I could demonstrate editing without all the extra buttons.

To Do and Done[edit]


  • Google books wikipedia citation tool:
  • {{subst:Uw-ewsoft|Article|Additional text}} produces Information icon Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. You appear to be repeatedly reverting or undoing other editors' contributions at Article. Although this may seem necessary to protect your preferred version of a page, on Wikipedia this is known as "edit warring" and is usually seen as obstructing the normal editing process, as it often creates animosity between editors. Instead of reverting, please discuss the situation with the editor(s) involved and try to reach a consensus on the talk page. If editors continue to revert to their preferred version they are likely to be blocked from editing Wikipedia. This isn't done to punish an editor, but to prevent the disruption caused by edit warring. In particular, editors should be aware of the three-revert rule, which says that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Edit warring on Wikipedia is not acceptable in any amount, and violating the three-revert rule is very likely to lead to a block. Additional text
