Editing interests[edit]

I have many editing interests: you will most likely find me helping to coordinate the Venezuela WikiProject or at current events, where I try to help keep the very busy current disaster/attack/political hysteria articles from getting too messy when they're on the main page or an ITN candidate. I am also interested in media, editing pages on film and artwork. If you want any suggestions in these areas, or with editing article structure, leave me a message.

"Don't Care"[edit]

A brief essay on personal connections.

When starting an article, users are asked if they are connected to the subject. This also implicitly refers to an emotional connection. You shouldn't create or edit an article if you have strong emotional feelings for it. Sometimes emotional responses are good, when you are emotional out of enthusiasm and interest — if you are a fan. Emotional responses have no place in editing when you very much care about the subject, because this may mean that you would want it to be presented in a certain way, or to have control over the article, or that you might hold strong opinions on the subject which might make it into your editing or make discussion with other editors fruitless. So, when editing Wikipedia, make sure you "Don't Care". Kingsif (talk) 14:57, 6 September 2018 (UTC)

Why we don't use TeleSUR[edit]

Not because it's a state source. Not because it's "socialist". Because it parrots Maduro's opinion and outright lies on common knowledge fact. Read more here.

Of course, getting news from one of the biggest crises is important, so here are some other sources that may be used for information on Venezuela.

Guide to review things quick[edit]

Among my specific areas of interest, I also do a fair amount of article reviewing on Wikipedia, predominantly at DYK and GAN. This can be considered a weighty task and something that can lead to burn-out quickly. I won't say it's easy to review articles that are particularly long, technical, or otherwise complex – things that can often be established at a glance and turn reviewers off. That just leaves a handful of particularly dedicated reviewers to bite into them, which is probably worse for everyone, ultimately.

Of course, I still do it. And I have a few tips to review things quickly, without doing it in a rush, that may get others to do it, too. Full text now here.

1. Know the guidelines.

2. Have a 'starting' process.

3. Don't skimp on source reviews.

4. Don't forget article history.

5. If you see a recurring problem, scan over it through the rest of the article.

6. Flex the appropriate MOS.
