My Work

On enwiki

On top of writing new articles, I actively maintain the Index of Singapore-related articles and improving existing articles. I do my best to be helpful to newcomers: being active at Articles for Creation, getting drafts reviews accepted, and answering questions as a mentor.

Other projects

I am active on Commons, sorting out the images in c:Category:Singapore. I do some translations from and to zhwiki as well. I was part of the Wikimania 2023 Core Organising Team, as the tech lead.

About Me
I am from the sunny island-nation of Singapore.



I don't bite.
Disclaimer

  • My contributions here are my own and not the views of my employer
  • I was a director for HackerspaceSG. Thus far my edits on that article have been non-consequential.
  • I have two other accounts for semiautomated/automated work: RobertskySemi & The Sky Bot



I am a Singaporean editor who writes mostly on Singapore topics. Having joined in 2006, I started contributing more regularly on English Wikipedia from 2019 onwards. From time to time, I may contribute on Chinese Wikipedia and Commons. To a lesser extent, I may do minor edits on other language projects, which languages I have some familiarity in.

I have revamped the Index of Singapore-related articles in 2019 and have been maintaining it ever since. Editors may use it to monitor for changes on Singapore related articles. Recognising that not everyone is technically inclined, I am in progress of making my script more accessible to the average editor.

In 2022, I became part of the Wikimania 2023's Core Organising Team, bringing the annual conference to Singapore and enabling the conference to be run in a hybrid format. The conference happened on 16-19 August 2023. During the conference, I had presented two talks during the conference, presenting some statistics on Singapore related articles and the community, and also on how to generate indexes with my script. As of 26 August 2023, I am working on putting the conference sessions' videos recorded on venue up onto Commons and will be tidying up Wikimania wiki next.
