Some of what I did for Wikipedia in 2017[edit]

During the course of 2017, I became the top contributor over the last 50,000 edits to Wikipedia:Requests for page protection (RfPP), bringing my total of page protections to almost 2,000, with 500 reprotections and a pending changes log also numbering close to 500 entries. I may be the originator or principal populariser of the idea of enabling long term pending changes on pages that have required semi-protection for a definite period. As a side-effect of my activity at RfPP, I was also the tied-second most prolific contributor to Wikipedia:Arbitration enforcement log/2017. 50,000 is almost exactly the number of edits made to RfPP in 2017.
