I'm familiarly known as Bill.

Creating this Wikipedia user page seemed to me to be the proper thing to do after I found myself occasionally creating and editing various Wikipedia content pages. I created this user page in 2004, but my activity level on WP was pretty low up until mid-2006. Since then, I've been increasingly active.

Wikipedia articles I have created (excluding disambiguation pages) include the following:

I've also contributed heavily to some articles started by others, most of those having to do with the Philippines. These include:

and others. Most of my edits, though, tend to touch the edited articles lightly. Quite a lot of my edits don't touch the article body at all, focusing on cleanup of footnotes and citations.

My watchlist contains over 5000 articles in several subject areas, and I generally review changes to watchlisted articles on a daily basis.
