:'''This editor is semi-active pending connectivity issues 14:16, 16 October 2017 (UTC)'''
Much of this editor's contributions are limited by connectivity. As a dial-up user, participation in high-bandwidth pursuits often presents difficulty and is avoided. This editor does a fair amount of editing offline and tends to work on low-activity articles to avoid edit conflicts.
Somewhere along the line, this editor became "experienced" which means that ''this editor should know better''. If doing wrong, this editor may be (virtually) whacked with a trout.
This editor is an [[meta:Eventualism|eventualist]] and believes that there's no need to panic and that issues with articles can be resolved in due course. This editor believes that articles written over time in the main namespace will attract a broader variety of editors, helping to prevent group think and [[Wikipedia:Systemic bias|systemic bias]]. This editor endeavours to be kind and to appreciate kindness from others, and tries to follow [[meta:The wiki way|the wiki way]] and the precepts of [[WP:DGAF]]. While initially an [[meta:Exopedianism|exopedian]], this editor has gradually become more involved with WikiProjects as a [[meta:Mesopedianism|mesopedian]]. This editor generally contributes through cleanup tasks and assisting a small number of WikiProjects, while continuing to learn how The Project works.
This editor is a member of the [[WP:Typo Team]] (focusing on apostrophe-related typos), the [[WP:Guild of Copy Editors]] (copy edited one&nbsp;million words of prose in a year), and [[WP:Canada]] (promoted its [[Wikipedia:WikiProject Canada/The 10,000 Challenge|10,000 Challenge]] and developed an award system for contributors).
This editor has received over 20 barnstars and 30 other awards, and won first place (Canada) in [[Wikipedia:WikiProject_Women_in_Red/The_World_Contest|WIR's The World Contest]] by writing 47 Canadian women's biography articles in November 2017. This editor has given 75 barnstars to deserving editors. This editor is hovering at the bottom of the [[Wikipedia:List of Wikipedians by number of edits/9001–10000|list of top-10,000 Wikipedians]] by edit count.
This editor is continuing to gain practical knowledge of Wikipedia, broadening competence as an editor while making small contributions along the way. This page is expected to undergo changes as this editor develops their skill set and decides how best to assist the project.
This editor endeavours to be kind and to appreciate kindness from others, but does not presume to tell others to "be kind". This user tries to follow [[meta:The wiki way|the wiki way]] and the precepts of [[WP:DGAF]]. If misbehaving, this user may be (virtually) whacked with a trout.
As of 18:06, 31 December 2016 (UTC), roughly 88% of this editor's edits<!--4700, approximately 3720 of which were typo-fixes or minor cleanup--> have been to articles, with about 5% each to talk pages and projects, and the remainder to templates, categories, and userspace. This editor is a member of the [[WP:Typo Team]] (focusing on apostrophe-related typos) and the [[WP:Guild of Copy Editors]] (continuing to improve on writing skills), and has been awarded six barnstars for work with these WikiProjects. Another evaluation of contributions are the [[Wikipedia:THANK|thanks]] received from other editors for: copyedit requests (14), typo fixes (13), acts-of-kindness (4)<!-- one gentle witticism, one thanks for offering thanks, one for gently correcting a redundancy, one for greatly thanking an editor who quickly repaired a mistake I made and linked me appropriate information-->, answering Teahouse questions (3)<!--generally for template help: discussion templates, directing to Templates for discussion(deletion), help with pronunciation template-->, article content (3)<!--providing a statistic and noting its relevance for inclusion, rephrasing a summary to reduce word count without sacrificing content, linking an article to de-orphan-->, proactive technical contributions (2)<!--noticing a complaint and inserting wikicode on several pages to prevent reoccurrence, and fixing a search string on a wikiproject-->, and talk page discussions (2).<!--providing statistics on reliable source use of competing terms, and adding to a Request for Discussion on GMO's-->
This editor has been [[Wikipedia:Reverting|reverted]] three times. One was a good faith error which the reverting editor self-corrected. The other two reverts, by the same user on the same article, were re-included (in the other editor's phrasing) following discussion.
This editor is interested in doing more work with templates, disambiguation, and page moving, and perhaps anti-vandalism and reviewing.-->
