Who I AmEdit

I am 39 years old, an office monkey from Preston in Lancashire. I travel, but not far. You'll find me in the kitchen at parties.

Wikipedia and IEdit

I have been creating pages, amending articles and the like since August 2004. I embarked on bringing the {{UKrailwaystations}} category as up to date as I can, but my general interests have also meant I have been amending national flags, band articles and Olympic information.

Whilst I don't think I can count the number of UK railway station articles created back when almost every line was missing, I worked on almost all northern branch lines to at least an acceptable stub level. Although this part of Wikipedia is not at the forefront of my attention, I continue to monitor them for updates and tinkering.

One of my proudest moment is getting Sark general election, 2008 created and then put on the In The News (and the front page!) . Since then, I appear to have become part of the fixtures and fittings of the In The News section and its connected purposes.

I'm an unsuccessful ArbCom and Admin nominee. I nominated myself for a role on the Arbitration panel for 2006, but had no confidence at all in success. This seems to be one of the reasons why the Support/Object ratio was something like 8:94 =) You win some...and you lose big time on the whole!

The biggest project I attempted - Constituencies in the next United Kingdom general election was a pleasure and a pain. Having created many of the new constituency articles for the House of Commons, I have endeavoured to do the same for the Scottish Parliament election, 2011. I spend much of my time on political and constituency articles - the Bradford West by-election, 2012 is the most recent grabber of my attention. You'll see much of my work at Sixth Periodic Review of Westminster constituencies and related pages, particularly constituency articles for UK general elections.

In total, I have created and amended a whole host of articles. My love of trivia has found a home here, but some of the more technical elements - such as templates and tables - are leaving me a bit confused. I still live in hope I can get help in this regard.

In so many regards, I am a Pisces. For the avoidance of doubt, I'm not a health industry shill.
