Ruben Schade is a technical writer and cloud infrastructure engineer from Sydney, Australia and Singapore. He contributes to Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects for fun; it scratches his itch for organising, fixing, travelling, jazz, and other important worldly pursuits.
As much as possible is done from coffee shops, his favourite places.
Thesedays I mostly hang out in:
- Article cleanup and maintenance categories
- Fixing malformed templates, deprecated syntax, broken or outdated sources, etc.
- WikiProject Jazz
- Filling out discographies, adding and fixing missing information. I also stray into blues.
- WikiProject Trains
- Mostly focused on Asia, creating missing station articles in lesser-known railways and lines.
- Association of Structurist Wikipedians
- Well-structured articles with clean, correct template syntax and semantic markup are easily parsed by both computers and humans. They're discoverable, navigable, accessible, intelligible, editable, and translatable. They also, by happy coincidence, look better. All my Wikipedia work is informed by this ethos. Not every editor is technical, so we're here to help and fix.
Not to be confused with submarine pages.
- Created Articles
- Sorted by WikiProject. Tracking for fun; I don't think article-creation counts are especially meaningful.
- Thinking out loud about recurring editing issues I've seen over a decade or so.
