Ping me for work reviewing in the following A-class, high order peer review, FAC/FARC topics[edit]

  • indigenous history
  • non-majority ethno-cultural or colour history
  • women's and gender history
  • queer / queered history
  • workers and class history
  • economic history
  • historiography and theory
  • warcrime and atrocity history
  • helping new A and FA authors in history and social science achieve their flourishing, esp 1c 2c
  • military history of ONLY the following topics:
    • logistics
    • civvies & industrial capacity
    • any of the above main topics

If your article at review isn't in this list I may get to it by myself. But I appreciate being pinged for only these issues in order to counter systemic bias. This is to spend my time preferentially engaging with editors working in under worked areas. Fifelfoo (talk) 08:59, 22 July 2018 (UTC)

Fifelfoo's handy principles for Wikipedia editing[edit]

  1. Don't shit in the well
While you may want to be bold if you've got a political ideal, you'll probably be too bold about it, so don't shit in the community's well.

Pages I edit or author[edit]

Things I do[edit]

  • Reviews of Social Sciences and Humanities articles in having correctly dealt with using review articles and magisterial monograph's introductory reviews to produce high order article taxonomy and article structure
  • Drive by reviews in some social science and history areas
  • 2c checking of Humanities and Social Sciences articles at FAC
  • 1c checking of History, labour, military history articles at FAC
  • Occasionally sources related stuff at FAR
  • Some A class and Peer Reviewing in MILHIST
  • WP:Reliable Sources/Noticeboard
  • Preventing Coatracking, original research, and synthesis by demanding use of appropriate academic works for article taxonomy and structure

Export hell seidel steiner.png For defending users of en_GB, en_AU, en_NZ and other bastards, and I'm quoting in full: "For "Bloody Strong oppose this will shit up the encyclopaedic process due to the imposition of fucking stupid cultural norms derived from versions English produced by puritan wankers onto users of other version of English that, for example, regularly use cunt as the generic noun." Brilliant, laughed out loud and fell off the fraking chair. I think it's the juxtaposition of encyclopaedic and puritan wankers." Nuujinn 01:45, 29 November 2011 (UTC)

I did bad; but, got better[edit]

Hungary 1956 FAR/C: it didn't solve the article problems, I brought the drama llama to town; learnt from my mistakes. November 2009.
Nitpicking citations in shorthand jargon at FAC; trained out of the behaviour. November 2009.

I did stupid; but, got better[edit]

Being involved in editing:
Too anarchic (but the article got better while I was on break)
An emotional drain of taxonomic differences that are irreconcilable based on SOAPBOXing and IDHT (the editorial environment has improved through everyone using much better sourcing policy as the basis for weight lead article changes)
Mass killings under Communist regimes
Largely SYNTH and COATRACK, there is a core article about a social sciences hypothesis which is clouded over by SOAPBOXed COATRACK (shows signs of improvement)
Fun and games in taxonomy to do with Ukraine exceptionalism, an unwillingness to separate historiographical narratives and historical events, and a debate over 80 years of English useage versus 20 years of Ukraine usage.
