Hello. I am Edward, living in London. Mainly a content creator, starting new articles and only adding cited information.

I contribute photos to Wikimedia Commons. Those of notable people, as used in their articles can be seen at User:Edwardx/people.

A Wikimedia-accredited trainer for communities and organisations. I receive no payment for anything I write on Wikipedia.

Other accountsEdit

I have an alternate account, User:Edwardx_training, which has the typical new user settings, just for training new users.

DYK collaborators soughtEdit

I'm quite active in "Did You Know...", and always keen to involve others. Please do try to help with these, and in turn you'll be most welcome to a DYK co-credit
