I am Raoul Nicolas, contributing since 2005, here and to other wikipedias and wikimedia projects, in English, French, German, Japanese and 11 other languages.

Projects[edit]

I maintain the WP:ASE project, which is an analysis tool aimed at improving articles' quality. Please participate, it's fast and easy :-) And I released the Groovy source code under the GPL license !

I also maintain the WRS project, a search engine to use when looking for references.

I have a few other Wikipedia projects that I did not release yet:

  • Articles You Want To Edit: A web application that gives you the articles you most likely want to edit. It will use articles metrics (including articles' history metrics). The user will choose to edit or not edit each proposed article, within the web application. The web application will collect the user's choice and use it to train a neural network.
  • Peer Online-Reference Editing: to enhance the overall quality of references, I suggest separating the work of finding references from the work of enhancing them. The reference finder would just write <ref>http://someurl</ref>. The reference enhancer would then come, open the reference link, check that the source is authoritative, check that it indeed confirms the fact, and format it with a nice filled template. First benefit: adding a reference is faster, leading to more references. Second benefit: references are peer-reviewed, leading to better references quality. Not enhancing your own online references could become a guideline. The enhancers' work could be made faster with a web application to would automatically suggest the kind of template and some fields, such as the article's name, the author's name, or the access date.
  • Wikilink Everything: If an article mentions Japan several times, then I feel that Japan should be wikilinked each time. Right now, the policy is to only wikilink the first occurrence. I feel this selection should be done by the Wikimedia software when rendering the page. Wikilinks are always useful, they explicit the sense behind a word with a reference to the concept.
