Hello! I'm Josh, a Wikipedian currently based in York in England. Outside of Wikipedia, I'm a philosopher, and I currently work at the University of York. For more information, see my website or my about me page. My editing interests have developed over time, but I am currently interested, among other things, in philosophy, animal rights, natural sciences and various facets of popular and not-so-popular culture. I have written over 15 featured articles, over 30 good articles, and around 100 did you know articles. I have made over 100,000 edits on the English Wikipedia, placing me in the top 300 contributors by number of edits. I am a part of the new featured article candidates mentoring scheme, so if you're looking for help preparing an article for a featured article nomination, feel free to get in touch.
Though most of my time on Wikipedia is currently spent writing and reviewing articles, I have previously been much more involved in certain administrative activities. I have been an administrator on the English Wikipedia since 2007, but rarely use the tools at the moment. I operated a bot, which ran several times between 2008 and 2013, and I was a WikiCup judge from 2009 to 2014. I have been an administrator on Wikimedia Commons (2009 to 2015) and an OTRS volunteer (2009 to 2015), but lost these user rights due to inactivity. I have taken part in a number of editathons, including the 2016 Women in Philosophy Drive and a 2017 Art+Feminism event at Queen's University in Canada.
