Madalibi(talk·contribs·central auth·count·email) Hello! Brill is one of the most prolific publishers of scholarly books on the history of science and medicine in East Asia, the subjects I am concentrating on in my editing. I buy a lot of books, but Brill's are so expensive that I would prefer to access them online. I am currently working on topics that have no articles, such as the history of acupuncture and the history of medicine in China, as well as social Darwinism in East Asia. Thank you for your consideration! Madalibi (talk) 09:13, 13 August 2016 (UTC)
The Discoverer(talk·contribs·central auth·count·email) An editor since 2006 with nearly 4000 edits on the English Gpedia and more than 3000 edits on the Konkani Gpedia, I mostly edit topics related to India, Catholicism, and science. I hope to use these resources to improve the historical perspective of articles. The Discoverer (talk) 05:47, 27 September 2016 (UTC)
Nishidani(talk·contribs·central auth·count·email)) I hope to do 300 articles missing or in a lamentable state of stubness covering every known Aboriginal tribe in Australia, over the next year or so. I've done 30 odd over the last month, as one can see on my page (User:Nishidani). I only used academic specialist texts, and hope to use a uniform template and format over this whole field to bring at least one area of Gpedia under the same set of principles, of stringent sourcing, organization and comprehensive development.Nishidani (talk) 20:53, 9 November 2016 (UTC)
InformationvsInjustice(talk·contribs·central auth·count·email) I have been contributing more recently as part of a decision to increase my involvement in the community and improve content in the areas in which I have something to offer. I am involved in the Ancient Rome and Greece project. Inadequate sourcing is endemic in many of the pages of interest to the project. I have just finished a complete revision of the Romulus and Remus article and the creation of a separate Romulus article. I have a J.D. and strong research and writing skills.

#Hesan(talk·contribs·central auth·count·email) I am working on the French project about Islamic studies. They have lots of books about this aera, as the Encyclopaedia of the Qurʾān. Thanks to my university, I only have access to some of their works. I would like to have access to the others. Thanks.--Hesan (talk) 18:03, 14 February 2017 (UTC)
LouisAragon(talk·contribs·central auth·count·email) Active for several years, and have created more than a hundred articles, with almost all of them being history-related (Europe/ME). Getting access to BRILL would be great, as they offer many top notch history-related works and journals. This would aid me alot in my area of activity. - LouisAragon (talk) 01:39, 2 April 2017 (UTC)
MikaelF(talk·contribs·central auth·count·email) I'm interested in Middle East issues, and particularly those related to Kurdistan and the Kurds. I think a Brill account would help to improve the Kurdish Gpedia, where I have been active since 2007, particularly giving reliable sources to already created articles, and create many new ones. I remember in my youth how useful the Encyclopedia of Islam was. Thank you, gellek spas. --MikaelF (talk) 07:46, 4 May 2017 (UTC)
Devotus(talk·contribs·central auth·count·email) I've got a total of 3352 Edits in the German Gpedia since signing up in 2008. I'm the main contributor of Articles like e.g. Kaʿb ibn al-Aschraf, Christoph Luxenberg and ʿAṣmāʾ bint Marwān. My primary focus is on the Islamic World. Brill features a wide array of resources on this subject area of which I currently merely have access to the Encyclopaedia of Islam. I'd wish to access the others, including the Encyclopaedia of the Qurʾān as well as the Arabic-English Dictionary of Qurʾanic Usage.
