Wikipedia activities[edit]

My main areas of activity are anti-vandalism, new page patrolling, closing move discussions, discussing deletions and clearing backlogs. Especially this one.

I sometimes assess pending changes, create articles, rename files, improve articles and do copyedits too.

I'm also active in the Wikipedia IRC channels.

How to decipher what I'm saying[edit]

Generally I avoid abbreviations on pages of any kind but I use them a lot in things like edit summaries and log entries. More Wikipedia jargon can be found here, but this is just the stuff I use.
