description: An erratic precis of my work on the English Wikipedia, for those interested in personal things.
Over the more than 6 years I have worked on the [English Wikipedia](!Wikipedia), I have accomplished a great deal. Some might wonder what, exactly, but not want to dig through >100,000 edits. But even I don't remember everything I have done!
I've done my best to pull together a list of my major contributions; I've based it on the results from the [toolserver](!Wikipedia "Wikipedia:Toolserver"), specifically 2 of [Soxred](!Wikipedia "User:X!")'s tools which return lists of pages created and articles most edited for a user:
1. Most edited articles:
- [Marudubshinki](
- [Rhwawn](
- [Gwern](
2. Articles created:
- [Marudubshinki](
- [Rhwawn](
- [Gwern](
Those lists are unreliable, however. They are obviously incomplete; 'created' may be misleading, as I make many [redirects](!Wikipedia "Wikipedia:Redirect") which may be turned into an actual article by a later user (for example, I am credited with creating the valuable computer science article [green threads](!Wikipedia) when all I did was redirect that name to the main article on [threads](!Wikipedia "Thread (computer science)")). The most-edited listings are also misleading in the sense that a great many edits on a page may simply be undoing vandalism; I do not list [René Descartes](!Wikipedia) below because my dozens of edits there are just reverts and I do not feel reverts are a particularly valuable service. Article writing is. Some such articles are listed where I have watched them for many years and feel that my supervision has risen to the level of a major contribution.
Conversely, sometimes I have written articles offline and then added them as single giant edits with a few followup edits to fix formatting errors; such articles would not show up very highly on the most-edited list.
I am certain that some of the following entries are erroneous, and I have omitted some articles that should be included. But I have done what I can. I am especially proud of the highlighted articles such Medici bank, Brethren of Purity articles, and the Fujiwara no Teika article.
