This page is a summary of article contributions I have made to Wikipedia. Earlier versions of this page (example) included contributions to other areas of Wikipedia, but this was scrapped in a revamp of this page in September 2012. The articles I have enjoyed writing most include For Services Rendered, List of CWGC WWI memorials to the missing in Belgium and France, List of FIDE chess world number ones, Annales de chimie et de physique, Lister Medal, Frieze of Parnassus, The Muse in Arms, and Leroy Chang. The best examples of my article work include The King's Pilgrimage, Victor Negus and Charles Illingworth. Like all articles in Wikipedia, many of the articles listed here have been worked on by others and still require a lot of additional work to expand and improve them.

...and later redirected[edit]

...using material from other articles[edit]

  1. The Lord of the Rings (1979 radio series) (6 July 2006)
  2. 1938 Banda Sea earthquake (4 January 2007)
  3. List of pre-1940 Fox films (1 September 2007)
  4. List of Númenóreans (9 December 2007)
  5. Adolf Gaston Eugen Fick (20 April 2010)

A few of the above articles (at least three, but probably not much more than that) were created from text taken from pre-existing articles. These are the ones with an initial edit summary referring to the article the text came from. Some examples are The Lord of the Rings (1979 radio series) and List of Fox films before 1940. Another example is where pre-existing article content was merged, such as at List of Númenóreans. Another example is Adolf Gaston Eugen Fick.

Disambiguation pages created[edit]

Some may have been created from existing pages after a move (see following section). This section also includes "name" pages that help to disambiguate those with the same surname (useful if you only have surname and initials). These are included here because there is sometimes overlap between name pages and disambiguation pages (e.g. when a name page includes a non-name entry).

...or replacing existing pages[edit]

Redirects created[edit]

Quite a lot... (1050 as of September 2012)

... and later turned into articles[edit]

Usually turned into articles by others (not always correctly, in my opinion, though in other cases they are good examples of a redirect with possibilities being turned into an article).

Translations requested[edit]

Some done through Wikipedia:Translation, others by other requests. Dates and early versions below refer not to the initial creation, but some early stage reached in the translation and editing work. In all these cases, the article work was done by others following requests I had made.

Other notes on article work[edit]

Various notes on some articles created or worked on at various points. Earlier versions of this listing (see page history) included notes that, although of interest to some, I've since reduced as the focus should be on the articles and article work; many of the older notes are outdated and needed rewriting. The work done here ranges from 2006 to 2011.
