I've left off active editing for now. If the community picks up steam e.g. when Mass 4 comes out, and/or moves to being more consensus-driven than admins making the decisions alone, then I may be back to work on walkthroughs etc.
I'm 45 years old and played Mass Effect from day one. Many years visiting the wiki as a "reader" before I became an "editor".
For single player I specialize in Insanity mode playthroughs and particularly "Iron Man Insanity" where I start at the beginning of Mass Effect 1 and play all the way through Mass Effect 3, and if I ever die I have to start all over at the beginning of the current game. So far I've completed a Soldier run, an Adept, and an Infiltrator, and am now working on Sentinel. If you haven't tried it... totally changes your approach to the game, I highly recommend it. Adept by far the easiest IMHO.
I've played a bunch of multiplayer and have lots and lots of Gold extractions but let my skills lapse before Platinum came out so I've never tried that. I'm sure I'll get back to it after my obsession with Insanity Iron Man fades.
I've been especially interested in the Walkthroughs, improving them particularly for those concerned with Insanity-level play. I like "preparation" sections on walkthroughs because they jog one's memory about what to bring along without me needing to have my hand held through the entire mission.
A secondary interest is helping new wiki users learn to contribute effectively - there's a steep learning curve between clicking the "Edit" button for the first time and being a confident editor, and I hate seeing folks get derailed by avoidable things like not understanding the edit war rules, how to deal with edits getting reverted, etc. It's really a Wikia-level gap and what Silicon Valley types would refer to as poor "web product management" - they work hard to get you to click the edit button that first time, but the first time someone disagrees with you you're dropped straight into the deep end of why-didn't-you-read-all-the-policies-first and needing to understand how talk pages work. So anyway when I see new users come along that fit the pattern of trying to make a reasonable contribution but not understanding the policies/etiquette, etc, well enough to have an impact, I try to help them a bit to lessen the early frustration level.
- Two decent-sized projects were cleaning up the Mass Effect Guide and Mass Effect 2 Guide.
- I've written or at least improved the Preparation sections for most mission walkthroughs.
