I live in Franskraal, from where I have a view of boats taking people to Dyer Island for close encounters of the third kind with Great White sharks. Things that interested me at various stages of my life and to some extent still do, are mathematics, music, elections, LitNet (Google me. I have an indecently large electronic footprint and my name is fairly rare, so you won't get too many false hits). Things that interest me now are genealogy, barbecues (specializing in fresh fish, which I do not catch myself, unfortunately) and red wine.
Everybody has their own style. My description of mine is mainly a reminder to myself of what I should be living up to. Please inform me if you feel I am not doing that. 
I try hard to find near-primary online sources: photographs of documents and gravestones and official (mainly government) databases. If I did not succeed, for example because there is a gap in what is available on FamilySearch, I say so.
I do not create a profile if the only evidence I have is a name on someone else's vital document. For example, I do not enter the husband "Unknown KNOWN" merely on the strength of the surname of a married woman (but sometimes WikiTree does that for me).
I generally do not enter a person if the only evidence I have is some other genealogical website, but am willing to make an exception when I really need that person to complete a genealogy and the website is a narrow one curated by someone who is passionate about accuracy and willing to discuss issues.
I tend to think of a profile as "belonging" to a manager when they are the only person who over a long period has worked on it, and will first publish a public comment before doing anything more substantial than adding an image. This works both ways, I hope.
When sources differ about details about a person, I consider all the possibilities and select the one least likely to be confusing. I abhor blind adherence to rigid rules, e.g. favouring a baptism register over all other sources for LNAB. The WikiTree guidelines are good enough me and I do not support project managers that flout them.
I really love informative biographies that make a person come alive.
I think that there is a good reason why G2G almost forces you to phrase your post as a question, and shall try to avoid posting mere disguised attempts at getting a discussion going. Dirk Laurie 15:32, 27 August 2018 (UTC)
A few weeks before my second anniversary as a WikiTreer, I started a blog of notes to myself that I think I might want to read again.
