The top ten reasons it's time for a wikibreak

10. You nominate articles for FA the day you create them.

9. You care about the difference between an em dash and an en dash.

8. You've made more edits to WP:AN than to your favorite article.

7. You've made more posts to Jimbo's user talk page than to your own.

6. Your block log no longer displays on a single screen.

5. Three or more entries at WP:LAME are edit wars you've been in.

4. You still don't believe they all were lame.

3. You dream in wikimarkup.

2. Wikipedia Review dedicates a subforum to you.

1. The Arbitration Committee mailing list takes you off moderation.

I've never understood when we are supposed to use em dash and en dash. maybe someone can explain that one to me. I definitely meet 8. I also meet 5,4 and 2. Does 3 count if it is only on occasion? It hasn't happened for at least a month.

Hi Durova,
This is a really great top ten list, I love wikipedia and the movement it has created. I think wiki's will become more and more popular as the internet rolls along. You can post this to our site and then link back to your site. We are looking for top ten lists and our users can track back to your site. The coolest feature is you can let other people vote on the rankings of your list.
