    Why I contribute[edit]

    I contribute because I like to write, and editing gives me a chance to polish what I've added to the pool of knowledge. Those looking at my additions will see that I also like to dig through book databases to extract lists--sometimes the lists are all one can find on pre-internet era authors and illustrators. I think that these lists will over time become articles, simply because fans and collectors will add to them. If you build it, they will come. I guess that puts me in the Inclusionist camp.
