Hello. I am Edward, living in London. Mainly a content creator, starting new articles and expanding/improving others. Any new content cited with reliable sources, naturally.

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 those images is due to the circumstances in which they were taken, not just my limitations as a photographer. Aside from cropping, I do no post-processing. If anyone would like to improve them or contribute better ones, please do so. My belief is that any image is far better than no image.

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]

For this edit, perplexing me. I saw a broken link, then couldn't find the problem in the code because you'd already fixed it! Philosopher Let us reason together. 11:32, 25 September 2011 (UTC)
