:'''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]] (approx. 75% of edits to mainspace and 10% to projects). 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).
Beginning in January 2018, this editor served as a [[WP:GOCE/COORD|project coordinator]] of the [[WP:Guild of Copy Editors]]. This is not a distinction of any competency or authority, but indicates a designated volunteer who will perform maintenance and housekeeping for the user group. This editor is also a member of the [[WP:Typo Team]] (focusing on apostrophe-related typos) 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/9001–100005001–10000|list of top-10,000 Wikipedians]] by edit count.
