Introduction edit | view
Status edit | view

Hello there. I am CJLL Wright, or cjllw for short. I've been a editor here at from May 2005, and an administrator as of January 2007 (nomination here). If you need to contact me in regard to some admin action, try leaving a message on my talkpage, or I can be emailed via the 'email this user' link function. Would be glad be glad to help out where I can. I've been a reasonably active but sometimes intermittent contributor, time and Real Life permitting.

I'm generally to be found expanding and organising articles and materials across (sometimes neglected) subfields of History, Archaeology, Anthropology, Linguistics and Geography. While these are my main areas of interest, I'll often venture into other topics as the occasion demands, or whim suggests. My main focus is on content research, improvement, citation and categorisation, and I tend to work concurrently on a number of different themes, looking at articles within those areas rather than from a broader palette. I also devote some portion of my available time to general admin duties and assistance with various meta-tasks, such as various review discussions, category rationalisation, guideline and template tidying, copyvio checking, watchlist-patrol and vandal-cracking as and when I come across it.

My Current focal area of activity appears to be on pre-Columbian Mesoamerica-related articles, improving content and coverage for these and thinking about strategies and activities to research and collaborate in this area. At the moment I'm spending a bit of time developing WikiProject Mesoamerica which I've initiated as a space for this work. There are a couple of other Projects I'm (less frequently) active in, or at least keep an eye on, such as WikiProject Academic Journals, WikiProject Writing systems, WikiProject Ethnic groups and WikiProject Endangered languages. Beyond these I've a rather-poorly maintained worklist (somewhere below) where I may jot down ideas or articles I plan to get to at some point.

I occasionally contribute to wikipedia sister projects, such as commons and wikisource, and on a number of other language 'pedias such as (de, es, fi, id, it, nl). Via unified login I am "CJLL Wright" across the board, full summary of cross-project edits here.

My availability and activity here can be variable, I attempt to maintain the 'Activity Gauge' seen here as some kind of rough guide to how often I may currently be checking in on things here.

Some selected contributions:Sylvanus Morley (FA) • Mayan languages (assisted in FA) • Nahuatl (assisted in FA) • Indigenous peoples (complete rewrite, still unfinished) • Nicobar Long-tailed Macaque (GA) • Charles Etienne Brasseur de Bourbourg (GA) • Yuri Knorosov (GA) • Maya calendarTrepanation in MesoamericaTociIstana BogorGesang MartohartonoBengawan Solo (song)ChicomuceltecSentinelesePatagonCentre de recherche et de restauration des musées de FranceMuseu Barbier-Mueller d'Art PrecolombíSan Diego Museum of ManElizabeth Hill BooneCrystal skullPierre Colas

    Various diverting comments...

     • The untold true account of War of 1812
    • A brilliant riposte
    • A well-reasoned demolition
    • Alas untrue, but 'wooka wooka wooka' does seem appropriate for Hancock's catchphrase •
    • Perhaps unfair, but I snickered at this assessment of Citizendium... •
    • The last word on 'movements'... •
    • Something rather ironic about the lead para in this version... •
    • Some amusing/despairing comments on unreasoning high bar for academic notability, like this one and sterling efforts like this (from the same AfD), that sadly have the ring of truth about them...•

    Notes to self...

    • On the Olmec-Afrocentrist debate... •
    • On the 'maize' vs. 'corn' terminology..
