I am an English-Latvian translator and editor, living in Riga, Latvia.

On Wikipedia, I tend to fix whatever needs fixing, i.e. poor formatting, wikifying (I just love piped links), spelling, sometimes adding or changing stub messages or categories, sometimes rewording and rearranging. Most of the time it occurs that while editing one article and looking for information elsewhere I'd start editing other articles that have begged me to be bold and fix them. For example, right now in my Firefox browser among other tabs I see three (3) Wikipedia tabs that say "Editing Foo" and one more that I have saved just some minutes ago before returning to this text box to write this particular paragraph. Sometimes there's more of them and I don't know how to stop.

I have contributed mostly to Latvian Wikipedia, where I am an admin (see Lietotājs:Juzeris). See also my accounts on Meta and English Wiktionary. Recently I have started rolling down the hill the tiny stone of Latvian Wiktionary. Hope it doesn't settle down nor gather any moss![1]

My bookmarks[edit]

Here are some articles I have found in Wikipedia. I used to add them to my watchlist but it has grown just too much to be able to follow and differentiate between the stuff that really needs following and simply great articles that most possibly are already watched by knowledgeable Wikipedians.

Some of these articles simply crave for attention, others are a great read, and for some of them I have no idea why I've listed them. :)

This list is not necessarily alphabetised or otherwise prioritised but it should be. Or maybe it is. Nor this list should be regarded as an accurate reflection of my world view or interests. This is merely a fraction of it. Or maybe it isn't related to me at all.

I really hope this doesn't end up being similar in size to Special:Allpages...

Blackness Castle

Blackness Castle is a fortress located on the south shore of the Firth of Forth near Blackness, Scotland. Built by Sir George Crichton in the 1440s, the castle passed to King James II of Scotland in 1453. During its more than 500 years as crown property, the castle has served as a prison, artillery fortification, and ammunition depot. The castle is now a Scheduled Ancient Monument, in the care of Historic Scotland.
