A little time ago, I wrote an article in Wikipedia, intending to advance knowledge of my trade. It was quite a journey, learning about Javascript, copyright and Wikipedia etiquette.

Soon after I created the page, someone else edited it. I uploaded my own photos and they were deleted because they were incorrectly attributed. Other users created links from my page, and still others altered my spelling to their own versions.

However, I persisted and so it appears that the article is still intact.
