A Shirt58, yesterday "The superfluous, that very necessary thing..." - Voltaire

Hi, I'm Peter aka Shirt58. My username comes from the field hockey shirt I was allocated some while ago. Yes, men do play field hockey. And Tasmania is not a fictional place.

This is not the Australia men's national field hockey team at the 2004 Summer Olympics.

The Australia men's national field hockey team has a long tradition of being the the best in the world and then somehow managing not to win the Olympic gold medal, with one exception.

I have very strong opinions about almost everything. My views are unconventional, iconoclastic and coruscatingly pragmatic. You will find nothing of the sort in my contributions to the Wikipedia project.

Brief Q&AEdit

Q: Shirt58, are you as easy-going, helpful, ridiculously erudite, and concise in real life as you appear to be from your contributions?
A: Yes, that is correct.

My editing philosophyEdit

  • Be concise and use good references.
 This user has written or expanded 14 articles featured in the Did You Know section on the Main Page.
  • I've recently tried to bump up my contributions to at least 50% article-space edits. As of 27 February 2014 my "edit count pie" looked like this. As of 1 November 2014 my "edit count pie" looked like... erm, a SVG image with XML markup I couldn't even begin to understand, but it's 53.3%.
The overdue star-mesh-transforming star (or something) for regularly transforming the fruits of ref-desk research to article space! (✿◠‿◠) ---Sluzzelin talk 22:17, 21 September 2016 (UTC)


  • So Pete, where in Australia are you from?
  • I'm from Melbourne.
  • Melbourne? Where's that?
  • (sighs) It's about 800 kilometres south-west of Sydney
  • Oh, Sydney. Yeah, I know where Sydney is.
