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. One of my long-term goals is to develop a semantic reasoner for Wikipedia using Constraint Handling Rules.

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

A pending changes system already exists, but it is rarely used, so countless articles are still vulnerable to conflict-of-interest editing and long-term vandalism. Wikipedia often relies on administrator tools to prevent vandalism, but there is a chronic shortage of administrators in Wikipedia. A peer-review system could solve several chronic problems in Wikipedia, such as long-term vandalism and edit warring.

My current Wikipedia to-do list[edit]

Vandalism cleanup[edit]

Typos to fix[edit]

It is very tedious to search for these typos manually. Wikipedia could use a spell checker or grammar checker to detect these errors more reliably.

WP:Content forks to merge[edit]

Things to refactor[edit]

Unreliable sources that need to be fixed/improved:[edit]

Missing articles and redirect pages to create[edit]

My favorite programming tools and programming paradigms[edit]

Pages that need to be disambiguated:[edit]

List of technical issues that I want to fix eventually[edit]

Some deleted articles that I am interested in[edit]

I wish I were still able to read these articles, but they are now visible to administrators only.

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.

List of redundant and tedious tasks that should be performed by Wikipedia bots[edit]
