Thanks so much for all your contributions. You do a lot of the work that most of us wouldn't touch with a ten-foot pole, and despite you being a bit less active now than before, the work you do is still highly appreciated.

Writing an autobiography on Wikipedia is an example of conflict of interest editing and is strongly discouraged.

In addition, there are special requirements for articles that are a biography of a living person. The Biographies of living persons noticeboard is a forum for impartial contributors to help resolve differences.

The "<First Name> <Last Name>" article title format applies to the majority of biographical articles on Wikipedia. These should follow the article-naming conventions for people.
