Weeks article get!
Note: I am here and am contactable through my talk page (in the sense that you will probably get a response by the next day), but I am currently very pressed for time and usually won't be able to do much more than a handful of edits per day until early November.

This is more of a gigantic "to do" list than an actual userpage.
As you can tell from the busy template, I am busy at the moment. Hopefully I will pop in every day for a short while and make a minor edit or two, and also respond to anything pressing that might appear on my watchlist. Unfortunately, it appears that article writing will have to take a backseat for the moment, although some will probably still be done. So if you see me suddenly very active (read: at least 50, sometimes up to 100 edits in a day) for a day or two, be aware that this is a false vacuum and will probably collapse soon. T_T
And yes, I still want to translate de:Am Brunnen vor dem Tore.
For now I mostly improve articles on chemistry and classical music. Some geometry too, sometimes. I also tend to use humorous edit summaries when reverting vandals.
We are by the way not that far from GA Bh. Aggressive FA possibility: Hs, 117, maaaybe Bk, Alkali metal? Do note though that I have substantially less free time to use on WP this year than I had in previous years, so these might take longer than expected. Lv will probably first, followed by Ra and then Au. Of course it will all take some time... I should relook at Tm, which is a weak Ln GA. I did write it, but on hindsight there is much missing, like Cf FA (also somewhat weak IMHO).
Go through element infoboxes for electron configurations and relative atomic mass uncertainties.

The layout was taken from User:R8R Gtrs/To do. You don't have to wait for me to get to an article on the list, though, if you're interested in working on it; you can just do it yourself first, or, if you prefer, do it together with me.
|Alkali metal||C|| A
|FA||I started working on it when it was a C; it's now an A and I intend to make it an FA.
I was very dissatisfied with the quality of this article in 2011 and started completely rewriting it.
As I kept finding new info about this heavily studied and important group the article kept expanding.
And that is why it is still not an FA in prose quality, because I keep adding content.
|FA||Collaboration with Thingg.
One of the last two important actinide articles at that time that wasn't very good (Th, Np).
|Thorium||C||GA||FA||For Mav, who said he wanted to do this before he semi-retired from WP.
It is important and neglected on WP, and this was the only long actinide article after Np was rewritten.
|GA||Mostly to connect two long strings of FA/GAs.||2014|
|Gold||—||C||FA||A wonderful metal fully deserving of an FA. And also to connect two long strings of FA/GAs.||not yet|
|Iron||—||B||FA||I don't know why, but I find it more fun than gold to write about||not yet|
|FA||The most important d-block transactinide. Finish this already!||2012|
|Flerovium||C||GA||FA||The most important p-block transactinide. Finish this already!||2013|
The remaining actinides and transactinides (Db, Sg, Bh) will also be brought to GA. Db will be collaborated with R8R Gtrs when they have time, though, as they want to do it. I like that. (It can get a little lonely spamming one element after another, and I get burned out roughly every six elements. In 2012 I did some of Bh as well as Hs–E113; in 2014 I did Th, Np, Md–Lr, and Fl–Lv.)
