My name is Chris Keating, and I am currently a Trustee of Wikimedia UK. We do lots of cool things for Wikipedia in the UK - working with museums, libraries, universities and other partners to help promote understanding of the Wikimedia movement, and help improve Wikipedia articles. If you're a British-based Wikipedian, there's loads going on, please do check out our upcoming events.
I have edited Wikipedia since 2004, and since 2006 I have been an administrator. (You can find a record of my admin actions here: ). However, since getting involved with Wikimedia UK I have had less and less time to edit articles, unfortunately - however, I'm currently doing a bit of editing on classical music topics.
The first article I deleted from AfD was "The Game of Lands". However, it turns out that my most ironic edit is in fact this one.
Featured articles I helped create
- Battleship - Main Page 14 October 2007. Last time I looked at the stats, 164,000 people a month were reading it.
- Ironclad warship
- Pre-dreadnought battleship - Main Page 6 March 2008.
- Hoxne Hoard
