About this user[edit]

Hello, the name is Jacob. I'm currently a student of the London School of Journalism and an alumnus of the Open University. I'm a libertarian socialist, bigender and pansexual. I live with Asperger syndrome and Tourette syndrome.

I began editing as Sir Richardson on 21 June, 2008. I am however not a knight, nor a monarchist, so had my username changed to JJARichardson, which is my default internet moniker. I edit as a WikiSloth, and also make a lot of minor edits as a WikiGnome. I also, however, dedicate my energies to expanding and improving the detail of articles I take an interest in, so am thus a sporadic WikiDragon.

I enjoy seeking out the best pictures on Wikipedia for featuring, and also strongly recommend spending some time looking through the brilliance that is Wikipedia:Unusual articles.

Featured pictures[edit]

Featured pictures that I originally nominated (though credit is due to other editors for edited and alternative versions ultimately chosen):
