Feel free to leave me a message
These days, I am not very active on Wikipedia. Feel free to email me for a quick response.

\'pur-pəs\

I joined Wikipedia three or so years ago but have not been active for a while. My purpose on Wikipedia is to help maintain and expand articles so that they are of the best possible quality, informative, interesting, and free of bias. I will lend what analysis I can to community discussion and will try to improve Wikipedia's overall design, look, and feel. I'm a student, and my time is limited, but hopefully Wikipedia will be something I can keep up with.

\'short\

I like to think of myself as a dynamic individual who constantly changes - hopefully for the better. If there is any label you could put on me, it would be skeptical. I won't accept a claim as true until I have a reason to.

Bots

  • Don't allow redundant "spell checker" bots, as this could be very inefficient. Instead, organize a system of concerted, non-overlapping bots who check spelling in an efficient and non-obtrusive way.

Policy

  • A section called "Conclusion" is inappropriate in a Wikipedia article. Such a subheadings is by nature POV and original research.

Organization

Some of these are probably impossible:

  • Normalize everything under one domain. (For example, en.wikimedia.org, es.wikipedia.wikimedia.org, de.commons.wikimedia.org...)
  • Continue to allow, say, wikipedia.com to redirect to the appropriate page.
  • Under the new domain system, change the user system so that user pages/edits/contributions are all one a single page, if the user desires. (For example: wikimedia.org/User:John.) This would involve some kind of normalization as well. 3NF is your friend.

Aesthetic

Ease-of-use

  • Somehow categorize Wikipedia:How to . . . articles better, possibly all stemming from one category. Highlights could be shown on the Community Portal. (In short, unify Wikipedia.)
  • Don't blindly divide categories by letter, but rather by supercategory.
