    Hello. I am Edward, living in London. Mainly a content creator, starting new articles and expanding/improving others, and adding reliable sources. I try to reference every sentence, not just at the end of the paragraph, as information tends to get reorganised over time as articles expand. This is particularly important for biographies of living persons (BLPs), where there are more likely to be real world consequences.

    I contribute photos to Wikimedia Commons. Those of notable people, as used in their articles can be seen at User:Edwardx/people. The quality of some of these images is due to the circumstances in which they were taken, not just my limitations as a photographer. Even a mediocre image is better than none. Aside from cropping, I do no post-processing. If anyone would like to improve them or contribute better ones, please do so.

    A Wikimedia-accredited trainer for communities and organisations. I receive no payment for anything I write on Wikipedia.

    Other accounts[edit]

    I have an alternate account, User:Edwardx_training, which has the typical new user settings, just for training new users.

    DYK collaborators sought[edit]

    I'm quite active in "Did You Know...", and always keen to involve others. Please do try to help with these, and in turn you'll be most welcome to a DYK co-credit:
