From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Back to school!

I am going back to school after 25 years. I will be editing Wikipedia a bit less. I am checking up daily, but cannot devote a lot of time to it.

Welcome

 


Hello, welcome to my page. Feel free to say hi.

My name is Jeremy and I have been editing here on Wikipedia since September 2006, and have done more than 60,000 edits in multiple name space areas since then. I have been working in the restaurant and hospitality field for since 1983, and use that knowledge to improve articles associated with food, drink and the food service industry. I have worked for (alphabetically) Applebee's, Burger King, Legal Sea Foods, Papa Gino's and Pizza Hut and have contributed to those articles the most.

Note - I am not a paid contributor. I do not edit Wikipedia as part of my job. I do not edit Wikipedia on behalf of anyone other than myself. If you have come here to accuse me of that, you are in the wrong.

When I get on a tear, my edit count jumps through the roof, especially when working on bringing an article up to GA-Class or higher. I also review Food and drink articles for GA-Status when they come up for review at the good article nominations page.

Ancestry

As the boxes say, I am a British Isles cross.

Works

I have some varied interests, but I seem to gravitate towards the QSR, foodservice and restaurant industries as I have worked in them for more than 25 years. Since I got here I have pretty much taken over maintaining the various Food and Drink project and portal pages. Here is a list of some of the things I am following:

Articles

I have over twenty-five hundred articles I participate in, this is just a few that I seem to work on regularly:

Shortcuts

On WikiProject and Portal pages, you often need to establish a quick way to jump to the page without typing a long name on the search field. So instead of typing Wikipedia:WikiProject Food and drink, all you would need to type is WP:Food or WP:Drink; this is done by creating a redirect page. Once the shortcut has been created, you can put the {{shortcut}} template on the Project or Portal talk page.

Look on the right side of the section for an example →


Columns

There are several ways to create columns on pages without going into wiki-code. Here are several templates that can be used to do this:

With {{Col-begin}}

{{Col-begin}} and its helpers {{col-break}} and {{col-end}} are one way of creating columns. They are formatted like this:

{{Col-begin}}
This text appears in the first column.
{{col-break}}
This text appears in the second column.
{{col-break}}
This text appears in the third column.
{{col-end}}

Will produce:

With {{Columns-list}}

{{Columns-list}} is rather simple method of creating columns of bulleted lists. It is formatted like this:

{{Columns-list|colwidth=22em|
* This text appears in the first column.
* This text appears in the second column.
* This text appears in the third column.
}}

Will produce:

  • This text appears in the first column.
  • This text appears in the second column.
  • This text appears in the third column.

You can vary the number of columns by changing the number after the first pipe (|).

With {{Div col}}

{{Div col}} is one way of creating columns of bulleted lists. It is formatted like this:

{{div col|colwidth=22em}}
* This text appears in the first column.
* This text appears in the second column.
* This text appears in the third column.
{{div col end}}

Will produce:

  • This text appears in the first column.
  • This text appears in the second column.
  • This text appears in the third column.

You can vary the number of columns by changing the number after the pipe (|).

With {{Multicol}}

{{Multicol}} and its helpers {{multicol-break}} and {{multicol-end}} are another way of creating columns. They are formatted like this:

{{Multicol}}
This text appears in the first column.
{{Multicol-break}}
This text appears in the second column.
{{Multicol-break}}
This text appears in the third column.
{{Multicol-end}}

Will produce:
