Nuvola apps bookcase.png Back to school!

I am going back to school after 25 years. I will be editing Wikipedia a bit less. I am checking up daily, but cannot devote a lot of time to it.


User My User Page.

Hello, welcome to my page. Feel free to say hi.

My name is Jeremy and I have been editing here on Wikipedia since September 2006, and have done more than 47,000 edits in multiple name space areas since then. When I get on a tear, my edit count jumps through the roof, especially when working on bringing an article up to GA-Class or higher. I also review Food and drink articles for GA-Status when they come up for review at the good article nominations page.


As the boxes say, I am a British Isles cross.

Nuvola apps ksig.png Works

I have some varied interests, but I seem to gravitate towards the QSR, foodservice and restaurant industries as I have worked in them for more than 25 years. Since I got here I have pretty much taken over maintaining the various Food and Drink project and portal pages. Here is a list of some of the things I am following:

User boxes

Here are some of the userboxes I created so far:


These are some of the tools I use on a daily basis on WP:

The main one

I stole this tool box from Esprit15d, a useful set of links to templates often used on WP.

Quick links

Another stolen toolbox (from Kudpung), this time links to the most common Wikipedia tools and boards.

Message boxes

This is a list of the various templates used to post messages on WP:

You can learn how to customize these templates by following the links to their individual pages.


When there is a discussion on articles for such things as merge proposals or RfC's, at the end of the discussion you should close it with the following templates:

You can learn more about discussions and achieving a consensus here.



On WikiProject and Portal pages, you often need to establish a quick way to jump to the page without typing a long name on the search field. So instead of typing Wikipedia:WikiProject Food and drink, all you would need to type is WP:Food or WP:Drink; this is done by creating a redirect page. Once the shortcut has been created, you can put the {{shortcut}} template on the Project or Portal talk page.

Look on the right side of the section for an example →


There are several ways to create columns on pages without going into wiki-code. Here are several templates that can be used to do this:
