- What I do
I do a lot of different things around here these days. Often I'm uploading my own images of rail in the northeast - MBTA, Amtrak, Shore Line East, and others - as well as some farther-flung locations. I don't make too many due to time constraints, but occasionally I'll take HDR images and make vector maps. I keep a list of stations for which I took the first free image here.
Every file I've made is now located under Category:Files by User:Pi.1415926535.
A significant portion of my work is organization. I build architecture - I create categories, sort images, and identify places. I've completed a full organization of Category:Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority, completed top-level organization of Category:Boston, and began attacking Category:Tone-mapped HDR images.
As part of my historical interests on en.wikipedia, I upload a lot of historical images and maps, largely from pre-1923 public domain sources. I also transfer free images from Wikipedia and Flickr, and occasionally do some editing for the Wikipedia Graphic Lab.
- User rights
I have a legitimate alternative account, User:Pi1415926535, which I primarily use for uncontroversial technical-improvement uploads of others' images. I also occasionally use it on public computers (and to prevent anyone else using it to impersonate me), as well as if User:Flickr upload bot fails to upload an image.
I was granted the filemover right a while back. I check requested moves occasionally; if your requested move has waited a while, leave me a message and I'll take a look.
I'll likely go for adminship at some point in the not-so-distant future; the mop would be handy for a lot of the architecture-building and copyvio-nominating I do. I've been hanging around Commons:Deletion requests to get more familiarity with the deletion process.
