Hello. I'm Joe and I live in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Please feel free to leave me a message with either comments/suggestions/complaints.

-illy (who hates fonts that don't differentiated between I (uppercase i) and l (lowercase L))

I have returned, after a nearly five year absence. I am planning on picking up with some of the projects I was working on when I left.

I've decided to do some maintainance/development on the Wikisource:Fiction page and it's sub-pages. Please feel free to talk with me if you have any suggestions/complaints.

I've also taken on the remainder of the L. Frank Baum's Oz books. Illy 15:22, 2 March 2006 (UTC)

Which I've now completed spliting. I may eventually get around to adding the illustrations. Illy 18:53, 24 April 2006 (UTC)



I've also gone over all the author pages and added to the alphabetized categories any that are missing. Illy 16:38, 24 March 2006 (UTC)
page of all author pages

I've also kind of taken on making sure that new author pages get added to the index pages. Illy 18:53, 24 April 2006 (UTC)

I've also taken on a goal to get down to 0 pages on the Orphaned Pages Report. So far I've managed to get it from over 1000 to 534 on the last report. Any help is appreciated. - illy 20:26, 19 May 2006 (UTC)

I'm going to also take on fleshing out the 1913 Edition of the Catholic Encyclopedia. I stumbled upon this while removing pages from the orphaned pages list. The whole encyclopedia is currently available at [1], but not in a very usable form. - illy 20:35, 19 May 2006 (UTC)

Well, now that I'm back after a 5 year absence, I see that this is done. It looks like a very good job, too. - Illy (talk) 21:24, 12 July 2011 (UTC)

Disambiguation Pages


I'm creating a page (User:illy/Disambiguation Pages) to link all the disambiguation pages so that they don't show up on SpecialPages:LonelyPages.

  • Since there is now a standardized way to link back to disambiguation pages, I am going through the page and making sure the links back are all in place before deleting the entries. Hope to delete this entirely soon.

Reference Data


This is a page, User:illy/Reference Pages, to link the pages marked for eventual deletion or move due to being reference data, again so that they don't show up as orphaned pages.
