My primary focal points at this time are the copyright problems board and contributor copyright investigations. I also keep an eye on various policy and guideline pages as well as occasionally weighing in at WP:ANI and WP:AN. I like writing articles, but don't get to do it often. To get a comprehensive view of what I'm up to, see my contributions or check out what X's Edit Counter says about me. For specific areas of contribution, just look below.

Just for my own interest, these are among the most and least accessed of the album articles I've contributed. Stats current in May 2009. Album articles over 1000 and under 100 per month. I may spot-check the other articles, but not all of them.
Created to replace copyright concerns
Some of these I'm proud of. Some of these are simply stubs created in the theory that something is better than nothing. I try not to delete notable articles listed at Wikipedia:Copyright problems for copyright infringement without either replacing it with something new or at least notifying an interested & active project about the deletion. Because of this, I have created a few of dubious notability. I have also regrettably deleted some that were notable. Ultimately, the copyright question trumps. See User:Moonriddengirl#Copyright deletions for more. I don't watchlist the majority of these, but occasionally check back because unfortunately copyright infringement is sometimes reintroduced. This list is most likely incomplete, as I did not start keeping track until well into my involvement at WP:CP and as I periodically forget to note one.

Select articles currently being monitored
While I "catch and release" articles that I create or work on from personal motivation most of the time, I do watch over some articles which I've encountered as a result of a potentially ongoing problem—a note on WP:BLPN, an WP:AfD on an article subject to vandalism or promotion, a frequently vandalized article. This is a list of some of the articles I watch and why.
This list is here primarily so that I can ensure they are used in a timely fashion.
