Welcome to my userpage. My name is Emilio, although emijrp is my nickname on the Internet, I'm from Spain and I like English Wikipedia very much. I joined to this project in 2005, collaborating regularly. My interests include astronomy, cosmology, large numbers, free software and free culture, wikis, photography, activism, the Digital Dark Age, digital preservation, archives, libraries, the Internet, the past and the future. I am not very fluent in English, so please help me to fix any mistakes in my userpage. Thanks in advance.

In Wikipedia[edit]

Regarding Wikipedia, I like creating stubs, lists and programming bots. I have done more than 100,000 hand-made edits and over 5,000,000 edits combining all my bot accounts (anti-vandalism, stub creation, statistics, replacements, conversions and more).

I'm interested in improving the coverage of Wikipedia and decrease bias. I have started over 4,000 stub articles mostly about municipalities and other geographical entities, monuments and biographies. Also archives, libraries and museums in any country. Any institution that preserves human knowledge deserves an article in this encyclopedia and thousands are still missing. I enjoy starting lists, following there is a sample of them. The pages may have evolve later with the contributions of many people.

I have created visualization stuff like the Wikimedia projects edit counter, the Wiki Loves Monuments map and statistics, or recommendation tools like Images for biographies. In 2008, I developed an anti-vandalism bot for Spanish Wikipedia, AVBOT, which has reverted more than 250,000 vandalism edits and has several working clones.

Also, I wrote the "Wikipedia:There is a deadline" essay. Currently, the largest project I'm involved in is an estimate of how many articles are needed to cover the sum of all human knowledge.

I always liked to generate statistics of wikis. In 2010, I created StatMediaWiki, a tool for statistical analysis of MediaWiki wikis. Previously, I had developed dozens of scripts for rankings and charts in the old Toolserver and currently in the new Wikimedia Labs.

Later, I started to read academic publications about Wikipedia and soon I ended with a ton of links to papers. So in 2011, I launched WikiPapers, a compilation of literature regarding these online communities, which currently indexes over 1,800 papers and many datasets and tools.

I have published several papers on wiki research, regarding vandalism, cultural heritage, digital libraries and systematic literature reviews:

  • Estado del arte de la investigación sobre wikis (PDF) (Spanish)
  • WikiPapers, una recopilación colaborativa de literatura sobre wikis... (PDF) (Spanish)
  • Análisis de enlaces hacia Bibliotecas y Archivos Digitales de Patrimonio Cultural desde Wikipedia... (HTML) (Spanish)
  • Wiki Loves Monuments 2011: the experience in Spain and reflections... (PDF) (English)
  • AVBOT: Detecting and fixing vandalism in Wikipedia (PDF) (English)

See a full list.

Digital preservation[edit]

Because I was tired of seeing dozens of wikis disappearing from the Internet, I founded WikiTeam in 2011, a project to digitally preserve wikis. As of August 2014, WikiTeam has preserved over 19,000 stand-alone wikis, several wikifarms (Wikia, ShoutWiki, Referata, Wikkii, etc), regular Wikipedia dumps and 30 TB of Wikimedia Commons images. We use Internet Archive to upload all the backups and there is an index in WikiApiary.


I am an amateur photographer who likes to take photos, mainly of monuments, museums and landscapes. Currently, I have a Nikon D3100 that produces good results and previously I used several compact cameras. Here are some photo examples, see more in my gallery in Commons (category) and Flickr account (collections and albums).
