Much of this editor's contributions are limited by connectivity. As a dial-up user, participation in high-bandwidth pursuits often presents difficulty and is avoided. This editor does a fair amount of editing offline and tends to work on low-activity articles to avoid edit conflicts.
Somewhere along the line, this editor became a "veteran" which means that this editor should know better. If doing wrong, this editor may be (virtually) whacked with a trout.
This editor is an eventualist and believes that there's no need to panic and that issues with articles can be resolved in due course. This editor believes that articles written over time in the main namespace will attract a broader variety of editors, helping to prevent group think and systemic bias. This editor endeavours to be kind and to appreciate kindness from others, and tries to follow the wiki way and the precepts of WP:DGAF. While initially an exopedian, this editor has gradually become more involved with WikiProjects as a mesopedian (approx. 65% of edits to mainspace and 15% to projects). This editor generally contributes through cleanup tasks and assisting a small number of WikiProjects, while continuing to learn how The Project works.
Beginning in January 2018, this editor served as a project coordinator of the WP:Guild of Copy Editors. This is not a distinction of any competency or authority, but indicates a designated volunteer who will perform maintenance and housekeeping for the user group. This editor is also a member of the WP:Typo Team (focusing on apostrophe-related typos) and WP:Canada (promoted its 10,000 Challenge and developed an award system for contributors).
This editor has received over 45 barnstars and 60 other awards, and has given over 200 barnstars to deserving editors. This editor has written 60 articles, one of which was good. This editor has one entry on the DYK leaderboard and is hovering at the bottom of the list of top-10,000 Wikipedians by edit count. This editor was named Editor of the Week across consecutive years.
