MY BEST CONTRIBUTIONS
Among the pages below, I'm especially pleased to have written pages about:
*Simonie Michael
*Numerical linear algebra
*A nearly total rewrite of political party
*Qapik Attagutsiak
*Louise Overacker
*Hanes Walton Jr.
*Berge equilibrium
*Gender and politics
*Andriamihaja – pretty amazing to find a historical national prime minister without a page in 2021.
If you're interested in any of those subjects, I really encourage you to take a look and see what you can improve.
SOME MOTIVATION
Do you know about this?
REGARDING TRANSLATIONS
When I translate a page from frwiki or ptwiki, I typically will read the page and translate it mentally, and then I may use assisted translation tools if there's something I don't understand. I am typically confident in these translations, and if you see changes between the original text and my English text, it's probably something I introduced deliberately. Usually in these cases I feel that my translation is a better representation of the original sources. Whenever I translate from any other romance language, I first use assisted translation tools, and I try to resolve any ambiguities or clearly incorrect lines by reading the original text and comparing it to my knowledge of French, Portuguese, and Latin. Typically I can be very confident in the result; with a lot of time and thinking I can almost completely understand written Spanish, Italian, Galician, Catalan, Romansh, and other similar languages. So again in cases of translations from these languages, any changes from the original text are likely deliberate. Similarly, some languages are close enough to English that I can understand some of the text if I really focus on it; most notably, English speakers who focus hard on a Dutch or Germanic text will find they can get some meaning from it. However, I can rarely do better than Google Translate in understanding information from these pages. So if I differ from the original text in a translation from French, Portuguese, or a closely related romance language, I simply encourage you to check the original source and see why I might have made that change before concluding that it's a mistake. But if I differ from the text in any other translation, it's quite fair to first assume that it was just a mistake introduced by machine translation tools that I didn't have the language knowledge to catch.

Other accounts[edit]

  • From 11 January 2009 to 2 January 2015 I edited (very occasionally) as User:Darth Wombat. The best thing I did on that account was a bit of very early work on Gliese 581g. I also registered an account under my real name, which at the time I thought I would have occasion to use, but which I now do not ever plan to use. I also did many years of copy editing as an IP because I didn't really care whether or not I was logged in.
  • I have done tiny incremental bits of either basic maintenance work or BLP corrections under the same username at The French Wikipedia, The Portuguese Wikipedia, The Spanish Wikipedia, The Polish Wikipedia, The Javanese Wikipedia, and of course lots of cross-language connections at WikiData.

Various things I've done[edit]

Thank you for quality articles about women such as Kay Lehman Schlozman, Elizabeth Theiss-Morse, Lyn Ragsdale and Aasiva, for translations from French, for service from 2007, for remembering Boris Tsirelson, - you are an awesome Wikipedian!

My major COIs[edit]

  • Hans P. Eugster was my grandfather, and Elaine Koppelman was my step-grandmother. I am also distantly related to Paul Radin and Max Radin.
  • My livelihood is supported by the University of Michigan, where I am regularly paid through National Science Foundation grants. Walter Mebane and Scott E. Page were members of my dissertation committee. I have also worked at Catalist and Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research.
  • I co-founded the Canadian branch of the Students for the Exploration and Development of Space, and I used to run the Ottawa-Carleton Educational Space Simulation. Circa 2010, before I knew the concept of a conflict of interest (and frankly during a very different era here on Wikipedia), I did some pretty suspicious edits on the OCESS page.
  • I have met, volunteered for, and donated money to several public officeholders and candidates in both Ottawa, Ontario and Ann Arbor, Michigan. I do not edit articles about politicians I have donated time or money to, about their direct opponents, or about policies which are centrally associated with them.
  • I am a political scientist (among other things) who is, at the time of writing this, probably the most prolific writer about political scientists on Wikipedia. As a hard rule, I do not write about people I know. I also do not write about political scientists who are affiliated with the same institution(s) that I am at the time of writing, regardless of whether or not I personally know them, because it's plausible that my personal interests in advancing my institution(s) would colour the way that I write about people who also work there. On very rare occasions, I have introduced citations to research that was conducted by people I know; I only do this when I sincerely believe those are the best citations for the claim that is being referenced (I believe this is actually unavoidable for any editor who also has spent a certain amount of time with subject area experts). But if you revert an edit that you suspect of being such an addition, please let me know, and if I do indeed know the person being cited, then I promise not to challenge your revert, on the assumption that my perspective is clouded by the fact that I know the author.
