About me[edit]

I am the author of a natural language programming system called EngScript. I have also written a a multilingual programming language translator that converts several programming languages into several other languages.

I am also interested in adaptive grammar systems and constraint programming systems such as Constraint Handling Rules.

Why Wikipedia needs a better peer review system:[edit]

Instead of relying on peer review, Wikipedia relies mostly on administrator tools, but there is a chronic shortage of administrators in Wikipedia. A peer-review system could solve several chronic problems in Wikipedia:

  • Numerous hoax articles would not have been published if they had been peer-reviewed before publication. The new page patrol system does not prevent hoaxes from being published in pre-existing articles.
  • In lieu of peer-review, Wikipedia sometimes includes arbitration enforcement warnings on pages such as this one. Unlike peer-review, the WP:arbitration enforcement system creates a very intimidating environment for many of Wikipedia's editors.

Why Wikipedia is driving me insane[edit]

Participation among Wikipedia's editors has been declining steadily since 2007.

Wikipedia describes itself as a project to gather "the sum of all human knowledge". Nonetheless, more than 1000 pages are deleted from Wikipedia every day, and only administrators are allowed to view these articles

Some articles that have been unnecessarily deleted:[edit]

Unfortunately, these articles are invisible to almost all of Wikipedia's readers.

The article was undeleted, but it was nominated for deletion again and deleted a second time.

About me[edit]

I am an occasional Wikipedia editor. I sometimes correct spelling and grammar mistakes on the English Wikipedia. I also try to find pages that need to be merged, and tag them for merging as necessary.
