I specialize in the following:
- New pages patrolling, categorizing new pages and nominating very short/test/vandalism pages for speedy deletion
- Tagging newly created articles that don't seem to be obvious vandalism, which I guess makes me a WikiImp (this may well be the reason you are here)
- Creating biographical articles, especially about autism researchers and climate scientists
- Creating articles about scientific journals
- Creating music-related articles, particularly indie rock related artists and albums
- Fixing those things that say "displayauthors suggested" in the references section of some articles, as well as adding authority control templates to any biography lacking one.
- Working on pages with incorrect ref formatting.
- Delsorting at WP:AFD.
- Reporting promotional/offensive usernames at UAA, and also requesting page protection and occasionally reporting vandals at AIV.
- Oh yeah, and fixing dead links.
Historically one of my major problems has been a violation of WP:MEDRS, particularly the part that states that secondary sources are the only thing that count. See /MEDRS for my thoughts on the matter.
I would like to thank those who helped expand the articles I created, especially User:Jytdog, as well as User:DGG for helping me out on this website. I had no idea Seralini affair would gain so much attention (or be subject to so much vandalism). Also, it seems someone created a page for Seralini himself, which was then converted into a redirect because BLP:1E. Since I think Seralini is notable, I created a page for him, not just the consequences one of his lousy studies. BTW, I would like to propose a law that "an event is notable if it elicits a reaction/statement from the head of state of one or more sovereign countries." Call it Jinkinson's law.
Please respond to me on my talk page, even if I originally posted on yours.
This section lists essays I have written in my namespace, so that I and anyone else who wants to look at them can find them easily and quickly.
Favorite Wikipedia quotes
"The user who visits Wikipedia...is rather in the position of a visitor to a public restroom. It may be obviously dirty, so that he knows to exercise great care, or it may seem fairly clean, so that he may be lulled into a false sense of security. What he certainly does not know is who has used the facilities before him." --Robert McHenry, former editor-in-chief of Encyclopedia Britannica
- And if I may be so self-promotional, I will add a few of my own ramblings:
- "Editing Wikipedia does not require real-world skills, any more than real-world activities require Wikipedia-editing skills."
- (Caution: clumsy analogy ahead) "When you enter the Wikipedia building, be sure to check your opinions at the door."
- "A dozen mystery books could be written about what might have once been on the pages that have been deleted on Wikipedia (either entirely or just individual edits)."
- "NPOV is by far the most Orwellian, and therefore the most frequently misinterpreted, of all of Wikipedia's policies."

Yeah, I never really update this anymore, mainly b/c I hit these milestones so often. Maybe I'll do it every 5k from now on. My userboxes now have their own page. (Except for this one, for technical reasons:)

In other people's words
"It's a strange mixture of by-the-book strictness, and exposure of some decidedly fringe ideas and iffy sourcing, with a lean in the direction of material on controversial autism causes." --Alexbrn
Something I hope catches on
- Jinkinson's law: "If an event provokes a reaction from the head of state of at least one sovereign country, the event is notable." Now let's see if people start citing it. Yeah, right.
