Stuff I mean to do

Stuff I did


One of my primary activities on WP is working on references. I frequently verify and improve references on an article that has drawn my attention. My idea of improvement involves templates and uniform formatting. I also advocate for access dates and archive dates in numeric format (YYYY-DD-MMM). In general I prefer dates on WP to be DD Mmmm YYYY with the preceding exceptions, however I follow policy (in general) from MOS.

I also do research for articles that I am interested in or upon request (as time permits). I have been granted access to the Cochrane Library, the BMJ, the Oxford University Press and HighBeam Research through the Wikipedia Library.

If you use a reference I have provided through these resources please include the url to the reference and appropriate credit to the resource (via HighBeam Research etc.)


I use Twinkle. Actions I perform with Twinkle are usually carefully considered and taken within articles that I have read carefully and at least perused the talk page of the article. If you have an issue with something I have done using Twinkle post on the talk page of the article or on my talk page. I use AutoWikiBrowser. Actions I perform with AutoWikiBrowser are usually considered but I may not have checked the talk page of the article. I am bold in my approach to using AutoWikiBrowser to "clean up" the format of articles and references in them. If you have an issue with something I have done using AutoWikiBrowser please post on my talk page. I use STiki. STiki is an anti-vandalism tool that I use boldly. I evaluate the text STiki presents with a basic editorial eye if it looks like a duck it gets reverted. I revert unsourced additions boldly with STiki. If you have an issue with something I have done using STiki feel free to undo my edit and if needed post discussion on my talk page.
