Hello. This page contains decreasing amounts of information over time, as I consider myself, as a Wikipedian, rather less important than my edits. But I get curious about other editors, so it'd be hypocritical to say nothing at all.


Here are a few bits of suggested reading for everybody working on any collaborative online project, but especially this one...

Just to further explain my use of this box up there in the babel list. If creating a British topic, I use British English; I respect U.S. topics by using U.S. English there (and indeed Canadian topics by using Canadian English; hence my avoiding the term "American English"...). This is in-keeping with current guidelines, presuming they've not been messed around with again recently. Although I disagree strongly with recommendations that the choice should be predicated on the initial editor; it should be dictated by the locale of the topic. I will be very grateful to other editors who also respect the guidelines, employ common sense, and refrain from "fixing" the variant of English without valid reason.
