User:Lx_121/Key problems @ Wikipedia/EN

Hi; I'm Lx.

I write, copyedit, sort things, create inter-wiki links, & also work with artists; recruiting them to join WikiMedia & placing their work, as merited:

These days, I spend most of my WikiMedia working-time @ wmc (commons).

Artist's Working Group

Other things I'm working on:

"anytime a wikipedia article does not come up in the top ten results on a google search, (it means that) we haven't done our jobs right" - quotations from me :P

Rule of Thumb (for wikiprojects in general)-- If you are spending more time working on user comments/discussions, than you are in actually doing work on the project itself, then you are probably doing it wrong...

Suggestion -- If you have just spent a great deal of time in "discussions", then go & do some useful work proof/copy editing, or etc.; you'll feel much better & FAR more productive afterwards.

Suggestion -- If you become involved in a "discussion" on-wiki, say your piece, say everything that you have to say about the subject under discussion, & then walk away for AT LEAST 24 hours, before responding to anything. Unless the wiki is on fire, it's not that urgent to get in your next "round".

Don't expect to convince people with your case, but if you space things out, at least you'll spend/waste less time being frustrated by people who don't read/don't understand/don't want to understand it.

THEN go & do some useful work on the project...

Things I have not uploaded at Wikimedia Commons[edit]

(usually because they do not meet WMC's "dual jurisdiction"-PD rule)

At the present time, most of this is going to be postcard art; mostly original, handmade works & focussed around WWI. When I have enough material, I'll do a separate gallery-page for the WWI-related stuff; hopefully I'll have it up in time for the centennial.

It's here instead of at Commons because while it is all free & clear under U.S. law, as PD pre-1923, it's not necessarily PD in its "country of origin" (if that concept has any meaning given all of the accumulated changes of states & borders in Europe since the time of these works' creation).
