  1. Bennv3771 (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) I edit lots of article and create some as well, and that regularly requires me to add/verify sources, quite a few of which have required highbeam access. My account does not meet the 6-month-old criteria, but it's close at 5 months, and given how active I have been in those 5 months (almost 5,000 edits in the article namespace), I think I am sufficiently active and experienced.

  2. DESiegel (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email)) I frequently attempt to add sources to articles and drafts in an attempt to help establish their notability, to support statements already in the articles, and to expand and improve articles. A subscription would be very helpful in these processes. I am very careful with providing full citations, and would of course respect the terms of use. I have been active here for ove 10 years, and have over 35,000 edits. DES (talk)DESiegel Contribs 22:56, 9 July 2017 (UTC)

  3. muzzleflash (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) About 3/4 of what I write on Wikipedia is on the Chinese economy and companies. Highbeam is better suited for business news than most publication databases so it will be a very good resource for me to research and update entries on Chinese companies.
