About me

My name is clpo13 (well, it's not my actual name, but you know) and I've been mucking around in Wikipedia since October 2005. I mainly concern myself with little corrections and edits, although I am active in combating vandalism, as well as patrolling the New Pages Feed and chiming in at articles for deletion.

I'm also an avid amateur photographer (see my pictures on Flickr and on Wikimedia Commons). I license all my photos under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike license, which means you are free to use any of them on Wikipedia if you so desire. Every article deserves a good picture, and I may have a few pictures that will help out (but probably not, given that many were taken in my "black and white and macro is artsy" phase).

Some of the articles I've created


There's nothing here!


Photographs I've taken that are used on Wikipedia.

"useless without images"

Thank you for quality articles such as Camano Island State Park and Arthur Nock (useful: with image and infobox), for uploading images, welcoming users, fighting vandalism and censorship, - all this for more then ten years, - you are an awesome Wikipedian!

--Gerda Arendt (talk) 09:41, 24 June 2016 (UTC)
Thank you very much for the appreciation, Gerda! clpo13(talk) 16:49, 24 June 2016 (UTC)
You are welcome, if you don't mind that it's from the cabal of the outcasts ;) - possibly need to change that name, now that a member was proclaimed Wikipedian of the Year --Gerda Arendt (talk) 17:04, 24 June 2016 (UTC)

Very nice (and thorough!) of you to even adjust the redirect template after making the technical move Koboldocossus nigrostriatus to Koboldocossus for me. AddWittyNameHere (talk) 23:32, 2 September 2016 (UTC)
@AddWittyNameHere: Thank you very much! I try my best. clpo13(talk) 23:34, 2 September 2016 (UTC)
Then you do so well. :D Took a quick peek at your edit history, looks like you keep yourself nicely busy. :) I see that like me you appear to mostly split your time between gnomish/maintenance work and vandal-fighting with some content work scattered in between? AddWittyNameHere (talk) 23:39, 2 September 2016 (UTC)
Yep, that's me. I've been trying to work on more content recently, but I tend to stick to the minor stuff for the most part. clpo13(talk) 23:48, 2 September 2016 (UTC)
Yeah, same here. Content work every blue moon (or when I need a break from adding the same category to hundreds of articles, anyway), highly repetitive minor and vandal fighting the rest of the time. Oh well, even if some (thankfully not most, though) folks look down on us gnomes, someone needs to repair dab-links, fix cite-errors, add categorization, add missing diacritics, repair double-redirects and sort stubs, no?
