A fairly blunt Scotsman describes me rather well. I don't tend to sugarcoat things but tend to give you a straightforward answer. I've been concerned for some time that the interaction between new editors and established editors is driving away new editors. Hence, thought about joining as a host for a while. If you're wondering about the quote, one of my personal thoughts on wikipedia is that our most important policy is WP:NPOV. When we cut to the core of issues and describe issues neutrally, it takes away all the self-justification that ardent nationalists use to justify inate prejudice. Sadly many such people simply see wikipedia as a platform to proselytise those same beliefs.

I really must upload a modern photo! We really need to attract good new editors from many backgrounds—especially, but not only, those from groups who are under-represented at en.WP and who will bring new knowledge in (women and non-native speakers come to mind). If you're keen to contribute, I'm here to help!

I like to research old music of various genres, and the recording industry 1888-1965. I also have some knowledge of postage stamps and property & casualty insurance. All of us started out as new editors, and made mistakes along the way. Hopefully you can benefit by the experience we gained when we made those mistakes. For instance, my mistake was to try to create an article as one of my first edits. This was a very bad idea, but if you find yourself in the same situation, I'd be happy to try to help.

Hi, I'm Mz7. I like working "behind-the-scenes" on Wikipedia, helping out in areas like the deletion process, counter-vandalism, and new page patrol. Sometimes, I'll create new articles and help out at the Articles for Creation project. It feels great to be contributing to such a vast expanse of knowledge, and it feels better to know that there is such a lively community of volunteer editors behind it.

I've been editing wikipedia for a while, so I think I have a good understanding of its policies and guidelines. I've also done some ref citing, copyediting and cleanups. I know how intimidating new editors feel when they come across prodigious amount of Wikipedia policies for the very first time, which is why I'm eager to help other editors to deal with editing-related issues.

So why does [Wikipedia knowledge] matter? One reason is that a lot of people find that editing, or even administering the site, is fun. That is is essential, as virtually everyone involved is a volunteer. Another is the satisfaction of contributing to an ever-growing source of “free knowledge.” In addition to being “the encyclopedia that everyone can edit,” Wikipedia is “the free encyclopedia,” whose content can freely be reproduced on other websites or in other media.

I write about interior designers and interior design and I've been reading a lot about Wikipedia's dispute resolution policies. I've also been through the AfC process, with several hiccups and hurdles, which I eventually managed to overcome and have an article moved to the mainspace. I'm a fairly new user but I feel like I've been through several key processes of editing and am happy to help with these basic areas.
