A few of the pages I've started[edit]

Interesting things[edit]

Date project[edit]

I have worked to get date formatting and (de)-linking up to scratch, and standardised. But blow me down with a feather, Wikipedia keeps growing and changing, so there's as much to do now as when I started!

Barnstars et al.[edit]

I have some and I like getting them. I have also given some out.

(incomplete)

Things that stayed too long[edit]

Note, these a random sampling of errors, vandalism and hoaxes, some spotted by me, some by others. The point is to remind us that Wikipedia vandalism is not "all corrected within a few minutes" as we sometimes seem to think.

Database dumps[edit]

Latest dump.

Disambiguation[edit]

I have also disambiguated "British" (several times), please correct any mistakes you come across. See User:Rich Farmbrough/Disambig scripts for a tool I used to help with disambiguation.

WP errors[edit]

There are so many ways WP can fail.

Useful style guides etc.[edit]

Edits[edit]

Generalist.

I would like to be writing great articles, but actually I'm an inveterate "fixer" of anything that I see that looks wrong - mainly links and copyedits. I have spent some time on GFDLing about 3000 images, and on some specific articles. for example Spaghetti House siege and Pedro Lopez. I also migrated a fair few biographies from DNB.
