I am an Australian aviation enthusiast who also works within the aviation industry - at Sydney Airport when I first joined the Wikipedia community (hence my user name, the International Civil Aviation Organization airport identification code for Sydney Airport is YSSY) - in the field of aircraft maintenance.

Sockpuppet investigationEdit

I thought I'd seen it all on Wikipedia; then I saw this breathtaking edit. Methinks s/he doth protest too much.

A couple of weeks later, we have this "new" User, whose very first edit serves to announce - among other things - that s/he is not a sockpuppet of ModernFire. Kind of takes the fun out of running an SPI.

Best. Unblock. Request. EverEdit

Does anyone actually read the articles?Edit

So, on 30 December 2008 Aditya Kabir added some text to the Bikini article, that included the phrase 'made by Mappin and Webb of London in the 1977'. On 14 January 2009, Aditya Kabir did a cut-and-paste job to move text to the Bikini variants article (in only the third edit to that article), including the phrase 'in the 1977'. That phrase remained in the article until I edited it on 25 June 2019 —- a bit under ten-and-a-half years between the mistake being made and somebody fixing it.

I'm not having a go about the mistake, I have typed 'the the' plenty of times when not explicitly referring to the eponymous band. I wonder how many people have read that phrase 'in the 1977' and done nothing about it, or read that without noticing it.

Articles createdEdit

I have created thirty articles so far, seventeen dealing with aspects of the Australian aviation industry:

Significant contributionsEdit

Some (but not all) of the articles dealing with aspects of Australian aviation that I have edited were almost non-existent as far as content was concerned. While not creating them, I consider that I have made a very large contribution to these articles:


In the first year-or-so after registering an account in July 2007, my editing tended to be of the "one-massive-edit" school (for example this expansion of the de Havilland Australia article and this edit to the Ryan ST article) rather than the "make-lots-of-small edits" variety but nowadays I don't have the time to spend several hours working on one article. As a result of having less time to spend, I now usually make small edits to articles, often to fix typographical errors and spelling mistakes; as of February 2015, about 3,200 of my 17,000 edits have been such edits, including changing "aircrafts" to "aircraft" more than 600 times.

I also find that I make a lot of edits when curiosity dictates that I follow the wikilinks to wherever they go; for example I made this edit then clicked on a wikilink in the article, which led to this edit, then on to another linked article and these edits, then another article and another edit - and lo and behold: more than two hours passes by. To give another example, while searching for instances of "a Australian" to correct, I came across this article about Haig Sare, whom I had never heard of and which didn't contain "a Australian", but which I could see needed work, so I made this edit; I then clicked on a link in the article to search for an appropriate Category to add, which led me to the article about Sare's old school (Sydney Church of England Grammar School) and to make this edit. After clicking on the link in the Hatnote I had created, I made this edit to the List of Old Boys of Shore, then added Haig Sare to the list in another edit. After saving that edit I noticed a formatting issue that I fixed with this edit, then arrived at the bottom of the page, where I found the Category People educated at Sydney Church of England Grammar School, which I then added to the Haig Sare article. That, in a nutshell, is how I end up editing lots of articles a small number of times.

My initial "big-change" edit style and my more recent "edit-and-move-on" style have resulted in an overall average of about two edits per page; however having said that, as of the end of December 2016 I have edited one-hundred-and-one articles more than twenty times each. This includes fifty-eight articles edited more than forty times each, of which nine I edited a-hundred-or-more times, including: 360 edits to the Qantas article; 210 edits to the LaMia Flight 2933 article (in barely more than a month); 180 edits to the Virgin Australia article; and 330 edits - mostly small fixes and copyedits - to the Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 article (including 170 edits in the first week-and-a-half following the aircraft's disappearance). My "Top Ten" articles-by-number-of-edits account for more than 1,800 of my 26,500 edits made. January 2015 was the first time I managed to make more than a thousand edits in a month; I also made more than a thousand edits in October 2016 and more than 990 in December the same year. Conversely, there have been two periods of six months during which I made no edits at all; and another six-month period during which I made less than a hundred edits.

My imagesEdit

I have been taking photographs of aircraft for almost 30 years and have a reasonably large collection (believe me when I say there are people out there with much bigger collections than mine); I estimate that it is about 30,000 photos, of which about two thirds are digital images - the rest were taken on colour film. I still prefer film, but I have to admit that digital images are easier to work with; I sometimes take a photo of an aircraft with my film camera then take a digital photo as well. The images I have uploaded for use in articles are below.
