I am not a hardcore editor but I do notice a lot of obvious mistakes in various articles that I read here. In some articles I notice misleading information and non-scholarly sources that are used in an almost dogmatic way. Here is a little about me:

  • I'm male.
  • I'm Mexican
  • I'm Bilingual
  • I'm impartial, or at least I try my best to be since I can make mistakes from time to time.
  • I have an education.

My focus is on the following articles: Mexicans, Mexican Army, Mexico and various other articles under many subjects like History, Philosophy, Science, Military etc. Mostly what I do is correct spelling and sentence structure, adding references, deleting false information and vandalism.

I don't like to take over articles where it appears as if I am the only one that is editing it. This often causes a lot of problems when other people, who have more opinions than facts, get involved and start to change an article's content without explaining what they are doing in the talk page. I have an obvious Native American theme going for me here but this does not make me biased nor influence the edits I make because I always try to base them on reliable sources and I listen to what the other editors have to contribute or propose. The problems usually come when only a few people are contributing to an article or when the proper information that is needed cannot be found from a reliable source. I am not an editing nazi but sometimes I have to take the initiative to correct and fix the content on some articles ranging from simple spelling mistakes to deleting entire sections because they contain an invalid point of view or tone or are biased and unsourced. A few times I have added new sections entirely because there was missing information.

How to respond to vandalism[edit]

The following is an excerpt I pasted on here from Wikipedia:Vandalism for my own use.

If you see vandalism in an article, the simplest thing to do is just to remove it. But take care! Sometimes vandalism takes place on top of older, undetected vandalism. With undetected vandalism, editors may make edits without realizing the vandalism occurred, and this can make it harder to detect and delete the vandalism, which is now hidden amongst other edits. Sometimes bots try to fix collateral damage and accidentally make things worse. Check the edit history to make sure you're reverting to a 'clean' version of the page, or if you can't tell where the best place is, take your best guess and leave a note on the article's talk page so that someone more familiar with the page can address the issue—or you can manually remove the vandalism without reverting the page back.

If you see vandalism on a list of changes (such as your watchlist), then revert it immediately. You may use the "undo" button (and the automatic edit summary it generates), and mark the change as minor. It may be helpful to check the page history to determine whether other recent edits by the same or other editors also represent vandalism. Repair all vandalism you can identify.

For a new article, if all versions of the article are pure vandalism, mark it for speedy deletion by tagging it with {{Db-g3}}.

To make vandalism reverts easier, you can ask for the rollback feature to be enabled for your registered Wikipedia account. This feature is only for reverting vandalism and other obvious disruption, and lets you revert several recent edits with a single click. See Wikipedia:Requests for permissions‎.

If you see that a user has added vandalism, you may also check the user's other contributions (click "User contributions" on the left sidebar of the screen). If most or all of these are obvious vandalism you may report the user immediately at Wikipedia:Administrator intervention against vandalism, though even in this case you may consider issuing a warning first, unless there is an urgent need to block the user. Otherwise you can leave an appropriate warning message on the user's talk page. Remember that any editor may freely remove messages from their own talk page, so they might appear only in the talk history. If a user continues to cause disruption after being warned, report them at Wikipedia:Administrator intervention against vandalism. An administrator will then decide whether to block the user.

For repeated vandalism by an anonymous IP address, it is helpful to take the following additional steps:

  1. Trace the IP address (e.g. and add {{whois|Name of owner}} to the user talk page of the address. If it appears to be a shared IP address, add {{SharedIP|Name of owner}} or {{SharedIPEDU|Name of owner}}. The OrgName on the IP trace result should be used as the Name of owner parameter in the above three templates.
  2. For repetitive anonymous vandalism, particularly where registered to a school or other kind of responsive ISP, consider listing it on Wikipedia:Abuse response.


These are templates that I sometimes add to certain articles, I keep them here for easy access.
