Ruben Schade is a technical writer and IaaS engineer who contributes to Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects for fun, when he's not referring to himself in the third person. 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.
I'm equal parts WikiGnome and page creator. These are my current projects:
- WikiProject Jazz
- Filling out discographies for artists, uploading cover art, categorising, creating navboxes, fixing deprecated or incorrect template parameters, adding semantic markup, fixing redirects, finding sources. I also stray into blues from time to time, America's other original art form! ♡
- WikiProject Trains
- Creating missing station and train line articles that exist in other language Wikipedias, or are just flat-out missing. Also cross-importing free media to the Commons so they can be used elsewhere.
- 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 navigable, accessible, intelligable, editable, and translatable (see the introduction). All my editing, fixing, and page creating is informed by this ethos. There's also an inclusionist-bent; articles are better served with fixes and encouragement than deletions more often than not.
