Information[edit]

Editing Habits[edit]

  • As a Wikipedia editor, I normally use WP:BOLD and assume consensus if I don't see existing opposition to (or discussion on) the subject in question.
  • I'm an inclusionist. As a result, I will always choose content standard-of-quality over content verifiability, except in circumstances where the information is particularly dubious or challenged as incorrect (or not notable) by another editor on Wikipedia.

Removal of American English[edit]

  • I frequently edit articles to conform to British English (BrE). I have an uncontrollable bias against the American English 'language' - but I never let this influence my impartial and neutral editing of Wikipedia.
  • I will change an article to BrE... if the article pertains to a British subject, if the subject is of exclusive or obvious interest to British readers in the majority, or if the article fulfils any other criteria under WP:OWN, WP:TIES or other relevant WP:ENGVAR guidelines.
  • I will also change an article to BrE... if the instances of BrE words and phrases outnumber those of AmE, as per WP:RETAIN.
  • I will never change an article to BrE... if there is consensus to the contrary.
  • I will never change an article to BrE... if it is blatantly obvious that the article has American ties under WP:ENGVAR guidelines.

Call me an ogre if you will, but if I see you continually changing BrE to AmE for no reason, I may become a source of annoyance to you.

Stuff I do on Wikipedia[edit]

  • Correct any spelling and grammar mistakes I come across.
  • Rollback and Revert Vandalism
  • Copy-editing and re-wording articles, paragraphs and sentences to make them more comprehensible - or just look or read better.
  • General improvement edits on articles related to my town, county, part of the UK and country.
  • Improvement edits on articles related to London or the United Kingdom in general.
