So frequently over the long length of my account running I have said that Wikipedia is not where I belong - "I have come merely to add and correct a few article close to my heart" such as MUN and H²G², in the case of h2g2 I was sent, in order to ensure the correctness of a small part. h2g2 seemed so much more spiritually in tune - a good social aspect, a weird and wonderful, but high quality set of articles, it was an excellent place.
But each time I wander back from my wikibreaks I find myself staying longer, and making more edits. My most recent trip has already more than
doubled, quadripled, octupled, sexdecupled, Duotrigintupled, Quattorsexagintupled my edits, seen me pick up AfD, AfC (Interesting AfC Graph, Twinkle, vandal patrolling and, of course, perhaps a soupcon of conventional editing.
It's even had me get to my first wikimeet (on my third try, with an entertaining set of reasons seemingly desperate to keep me from seeing you all).
MAJOR QUESTIONS OF LIFE (please answer on talk page!)
- How do I edit Wikipedia articles while using both arms to conduct Einaudi's "Divenire"?
- Who will be the
luckyunfortunate editor to restart the Stocks?
- How to get to the 'Crats to adopt "Fiat Consensus Ruat Caelum" as their motto?
- Has it not occurred to anyone that OVERSIGHT have the creepiest, censorship-esk, logo?
I have a few current focuses/objectives:
- Conclude GA review of Roman Tmetuchl (Talk:Roman Tmetuchl/GA1) - review completed, in progress responses, pending some research efforts by both of us
- One "genre by artist" list at a time, fix every discography article to either source sufficiently or redirect.
- Create another B-class article (possibly done - we'll seen what MFJ gets)
- Finish off the rugby players who warrant articles
- Add spoken versions for all my articles (5/7 done)
- Assess suggested edits for Mark Lindquist,
- Research what criteria might work for recall process - ETA delayed, pending boiler and recall RfC
- Handle REFUND request on talk page
We might spend eons discussing the details, but a good general ethos for Wikipedia and Life: Neither needlessly offend, nor be too quick to take offense
As of about September 2018 (and still as of September!) my computer has become a right hissy monster - as such, if you see me making strangely frequent save rates it means it's not been playing ball!

The motto of the AIW is conservata veritate, which translates to "with the preserved truth".
My early days (way back in 2012) had me as the staunchest of inclusionists, but I have softened over time to find my general role as a centre-inclusionist. Please feel free to natter on the subject to me whether you be inclusionist, deletionist, mergist or a radical transwikist! It's only by the discussion that you actually get the best answers :)
