Greetings, reader! I edit here, mostly improving ship articles, and occasionally reverting vandalism, although I am less active than I used to be due to lack of time.
I registered my account in November 2017, and did what almost every well-meaning Wiki-noob does: attempt to write an article. Needless to say, my first draft was an unreferenced, promotional, copyright violation. Thanks to some help from fellow editors at AfC who did not immediately CSD my draft and block me as a spammer, I managed to add references, and attribute the text to the site I had taken it from.
Next, I found out about vandalism, and reverting it. I thought it was fun, and after a couple weeks I was racking up ~100 EPD with huggle. After a couple months, though, I found that I would be more efficient if I were an administrator. So I went over to WP:RFA, took a look, and found out that I wasn't going to become one anytime soon. One of the unofficial "prerequisites" was to have done some content creation, so I went around, trying to figure out what I could write about. I ended up on WP:Requested articles, and I translated two stubs from the French Wikipedia.
Around that time, I was invited to Wikiproject Military History (or MILHIST) and I enthusiastically joined. I found that a lot of articles about French submarines were missing, so I translated two during an article writing contest at MILHIST, along with a requested article from German. I continued writing articles sporadically, until October 2018 when I started mass creating article on French submarines, mostly start or C class. I created over 40 articles, some of which attained B-class. Around that time, I also started nominating my articles for DYK. Some time later, I discovered uboat.net, a website that gives very detailed information about the careers of submarines during World War II. I found that it was a great way to produce Good Articles, so I wrote a dozen GAs on British S-class submarines, as well as a German one.
In January 2019, the article I translated from German in April 2018, German torpedo boat Albatros, passed MILHIST A-class review, thanks to a ton of help from Sturmvogel 66, one of the greatest content creators there. At the end of April 2019, the article passed FAC on my second attempt, thanks again to a lot of help from Sturm. I nominated another article I had worked up to GA status, 1974 White House helicopter incident, for A-class review in December 2019; it passed in February 2020, and I then nominated it for FA. It was promoted in March.
Nowdays, I continue occasionally writing a GA or two, and sometimes I revert vandalism. When bored, I will review AfC submissions and patrol new pages. Occasionally, I also do gnomish work too, fixing grammar, adding refs and stuff like that. I do appreciate constructive feedback, especially if I make a mistake, so you are most welcome to visit my talk page.
I have also met two vandals in real life, and hit the MediaWiki rate limit three times. (The MediaWiki rate limit blocks you from making more than 90 edits per minute, and I didn't do it with AutoWikiBrowser, Huggle, or mass rollback.)
I am not as active as I used to be here, so please be patient if I take some time to respond to queries.
