I have many editing interests: you will most likely find me helping to coordinate the Venezuela WikiProject or at current events, where I try to help keep the very busy current disaster/attack/political hysteria articles from getting too messy when they're on the main page or an ITN candidate. I am also interested in media, editing pages on film and artwork. If you want any suggestions in these areas, or with editing article structure, leave me a message.

Sometimes other editors leave gifts at my talk page. I am immensely grateful for these, and have now moved them to their own page. Thank you!
- Why we don't use TeleSUR
Not because it's a state source. Not because it's "socialist". Because it parrots Maduro's opinion and outright lies on common knowledge fact. Read more here.
Of course, getting news from one of the biggest crises is important, so here are some other sources that may be used for information on Venezuela.
Among my specific areas of interest, I also do a fair amount of article reviewing on Wikipedia, predominantly at DYK and GAN. This can be considered a weighty task and something that can lead to burn-out quickly. I won't say it's easy to review articles that are particularly long, technical, or otherwise complex – things that can often be established at a glance and turn reviewers off. That just leaves a handful of particularly dedicated reviewers to bite into them, which is probably worse for everyone, ultimately.
Of course, I still do it. And I have a few tips to review things quickly, without doing it in a rush, that may get others to do it, too. Full text now here.
1. Know the guidelines.
2. Have a 'starting' process.
3. Don't skimp on source reviews.
4. Don't forget article history.
5. If you see a recurring problem, scan over it through the rest of the article.
6. Flex the appropriate MOS.
