Imagine a world in which every single person on the planet is given free access to the sum of all human knowledge. That’s what we’re doing.
Selectively editing and NOT revisiting my previous FA-awarded articles to maintain my mental health and avoid stupid edit-wars.
After almost 6 1/2 years I think that I only now realize the profoundness and the full extent of the importance of Jimbo's words (although I quoted them 6 years ago). I understand them now that the journey comes to its end. What an irony!
It was a beautiful journey with a great company, but it's time to get off the train. After all, I've been recently only occasionally editing with long periods of inertness. First, it was the lack of time; then it was some loss of interest; then a certain difficulty to cope with some developments; finally what I regard as bad or clumsy editing (often provoking however a "bad" "ownership" reaction from my part). It doesn't really matter. Wikipedia will exist for many more years (even without me!), and I am happy I followed so closely (from "inside") the years of its fast development.
My heritage are 8 nominated FAs (written in most cases from scratch), and 7 FAs I saved (alone or in cooperation with other editors) all of them still maintaining their stars (with the exception of Law, of the second FAC of which I was never informed or asked to assist). I hope some good editors will keep an eye on them.
