As of Sunday, 01 March 2015, 15:21 (UTC), The English Wikipedia has 24,225,436 registered users, 143,288 active editors, and 1,364 administrators. Together we have made 758,684,340 edits, created 35,218,392 pages of all kinds and created 4,731,172 articles.



When I'm working on content, I like to improve or create articles on contemporary artists, galleries, authors, publishers, gender theorists, and concepts in art and philosophy, as well as on activist movements, labor and labor history, current events, and topics in gender and identity. The first article I edited was the Shigeko Kubota page. I am also keenly interested in adding pages on archival documents, collections, and exhibitions. More recently, I've been interested in adding content on medicine and health, LGBTQ topics, Feminism and Women's History, public policy, copyright and information policy and current events because I think these are some of the most high-impact pages on Wikipedia. I've also been more interested in being an active participant in WikiProjects in the past year.

As a Wikipedia editor, I'm hoping to get more into administrative tasks, and working on the Wikipedia:Backlog pages.
