This is the kind of thread I like... ;)
I've put myself in the Wikicup, so many of my edits are with the
competition in mind. I have a FA ([[Heart of a Woman]], Maya Angelou's
fourth autobiography) that just passed, and I have four others languishing
at GAC. I also have an Angelou featured topic that's getting close to
passing. I've been reviewing a lot of GAs these days; for some reason, a
lot of basketball articles, a subject I know very little about. (That's
the fun of reviewing articles--you get exposed to all kinds of new and
different topics.) Fortunately, the article I'm currently reviewing for
GAC has gender-gap connections, [[Australia women's national wheelchair
basketball team at the 2012 Summer Paralympics]]. I recently reviewed

I tend towards new and random page patrol, and vandal fighting myself.
I've somewhat recently downloaded Huggle on my mac. There was some issues
with Huggle starting at first ("Huggle needed to shut down" kind of
messages), but since Wine Bottler updated, I haven't had any issues with

*Wow, I didn't even know it existed. So there actually are people who
create an article (of interest to them) if you put up some refs, maybe
an outline. I have a bunch of folders with that sort of thing just keeping
adding refs to but never get around to...
Definitely something to help increase number of women-related articles
(though not too many of mine are).
Or increase our ability to generate them, especially those who may be
have more enthusiasm for the referencing stage than the writing and
defending edits stages...
