Main userspace areas
- /New page area
- /Drafting area
- /Listings area: these are miscellaneous working lists - ask me on my user talk if you ever need to know more.
- /DNB area: the old Dictionary of National Biography is an immense resource for adding 'missing articles'. We are now about 74% complete with it. Here at Wikipedia:WikiProject Dictionary of National Biography and also on Wikisource (s:User:Charles Matthews, s:Wikisource:WikiProject DNB). Some idea of progress can be seen at User:Magnus Manske/dnb ws no wp, a listing of DNB articles on WS not linked to a WP article.
- /Selected. I largely write historical biographies these days. This list is of a relatively small number of more general articles.
