I am a member of WikiProject Elements, WikiProject Solar System, WikiProject Uniform Polytopes (a daughter of WikiProject Mathematics), WikiProject Classical Music, WikiProject Middle-earth (recent changes), and WikiProject Chess. All my GAs are WikiProject Elements articles, though, and my one FL is from WikiProject Solar System. I tend to move randomly between these projects, focusing mostly on one at a time. I registered on 7 August 2009.
Some of my subpages may contain interesting things.
My userboxes have a lot of information already, so I'll only mention things that are not here. One of my oldest projects is alkali metal, which I started rewriting in 2011. It was the first article I worked on with the goal of eventual FA. I still haven't reached it, and don't work on it consistently anymore, but would like to someday. Also on my next return to the Elements project I will most likely finish up radium, which is very close to GA. Finally, I'd like to do iron someday.
I wander around the polytope and classical music articles often, and find that there are usually a lot of things to do there, but I haven't really done much to get articles to high standards there yet. In the former case, there's really a lot to do before GA/FL/FA can really be thought about. I have considered working to get at least a regular polyhedron or polychoron there, though. I haven't really wandered into enough of the non-geometrical mathematics articles yet to really think of myself as a member of the Mathematics WikiProject yet, but I might at some point. As for classical music, my chief interest is for now mostly in the Classical period (extended a little, to include all of Schubert). My favourite composer is probably Mozart (although Schubert is very close – and I think Lazarus, whose lack of an article is almost a criminal offence IMHO, might even be my favourite oratorio, if you count it as one).
I play chess reasonably well (but not very well, I'd say) and have a keen interest in chess variants, especially the historical shogi variants (hence the userbox above noting that I don't actually understand Japanese). Of those, my favourites are probably chu shogi and tenjiku shogi.
Finally, for the Middle-earth WikiProject: yes, I'm a Tolkien fan, and especially a Silmarillion fan. My favourite characters are the Finwëans (especially the Fëanorians, whom I probably would have followed if I were a Ñoldo of Aman – which might be a bad decision in hindsight), and my favourite parts of the legendarium are probably the Years of the Trees (from the Awakening of the Elves at Cuiviénen onwards) to the Flight of the Ñoldor, and maintaining a keen interest up till the end of the First Age. I'm also interested in the languages of Arda, and have a half-finished rewrite of the Telerin article in my userspace. (On the Quenya userbox; please note that "advanced Quenya speaker" means something very much different from "advanced English speaker"!)
I also use humorous edit summaries rather often, especially when reverting vandals (though it's not limited to that: here's an example of me totally not being a serious editor in the summary, while being perfectly serious in the comment).
P.S. Since I couldn't find any userboxes for this: my personal preference is for the versions where Gil-galad is the son of Fingon, Amrod died at Losgar, Celeborn is a Þinda of Doriath, Maglor threw himself along with his Silmaril into the sea, Dior Eluchíl had a mortal fate, and his sons Eluréd and Elurín died. (On my use of þ for s in Quenya outside the mainspace see The Shibboleth of Fëanor.) I also think of Celegorm and Celebrimbor with the silver hair of Míriel Þerindë. (This tumblr post by lintamande was a great help when assembling this list of opinions! If you're aware of any more First Age ones I might add them to this paragraph.)
