I edited on Wikitravel off-and-on for several years. After a few anonymous edits here, I decided to make an account and contribute more actively. I did that for several years, then took an extended break. I teach English at a university in Japan, and found it was quite easy to create a Simple English Wikipedia page if I am already grading/adapting English Wikipedia content for use with students.

Alternate account[change | change source]

I use an alternate account User:ELTted for editing with students and presenting SEWP to language teachers. I never vote or comment from that other account. It is strictly for editing articles that my students or workshop participants are working on.

Areas I've worked on[change | change source]

My interests on Simple Wikipedia may seem very different, but these are the things I know about, or are interested in writing about.

  • My first new page was Space opera, and my first change as a named editor was adding a link to William Gibson's Twitter account.
  • I nominated Komodo dragon as a Good Article, and it was successful with a lot of help.
  • I patrol New Pages pretty regularly.
  • My profession is language teaching, specifically EFL. There is a lot to do in this area, but it should be done carefully.
