I live in Australia, although I have spent many years of my life growing up, getting educated and working in Europe and in Eastern and South-East Asia. My occupational background includes journalism, publishing and database management. I am interested in wildlife and ecology, with a special focus on the SE Asian and Australasian regions. I am also interested in the history, people, dynamics, organisations and sociopathology of the biological sciences and conservation of the natural environment.
If you wish to ask or to tell me something, please do so on my talk page, then watchlist it if you expect a reply as I will usually do so there. I prefer any such interchange to be in the one place for dialogual continuity.
Internet forums and e-mails are not considered reliable sources and should not be used as sources for references in Wikipedia articles. They can however be included as external links. What is the difference? A source or reference is cited to verify the facts in the article. External links point to locations outside of Wikipedia where users can learn more about the subject, or where to see an example of what the article is about.
For your work on making the Cambodian articles more clear. Congrats, Maias! PhnomPencil (talk) 12:22, 24 November 2011 (UTC)
