Saab JAS 39 Gripen displaying at Farnborough, 2006
Quote of the month



I had been using Wikipedia and following the news stories about it for quite a while when I got into an argument with someone on a newsgroup about Wikipedia's reliability as a source. As I defended the Wiki principle of "anyone can edit", I realized that I could be editing instead of talking about it. That was in late 2005.

I wouldn't spend as much time as I do on it if I didn't still think Wikipedia was a great project. It attracts people who want to help write a free on-line encyclopedia of human knowledge. That so many people want to do that, and successfully can, seems incredibly cool to me.

I respect the goals of the project, and so I support Wikipedia philosophies and policies, particularly WP:AGF, WP:3RR, WP:NPOV, WP:NPA and WP:VAND. I have been described as a Şablon:Green and this is something I proudly identify with, This is amazing! It sums up how we can use conflicts to build our community instead of letting them tear us apart. I recommend that everyone read it.

Main activities and areas of interest

I mainly do:

  • Copyediting
  • Disambiguating links
  • Uploading and editing images using the various copyright tags
  • Fixing spelling errors using AWB. Great fun! I used to also do this under the account User:Spellmaster. I strive very hard for total accuracy, but if I make a mistake, please revert (if you wish), and drop me a message in my talk page so I know you consider it a mistake and can improve my edits.
  • Weapons and war
  • Aviation
  • Southern Africa
  • Scottish football
  • Scottish literature and poetry
  • Punk music
  • Science, especially chemistry
  • 'The itis': I have made 139,481 edits as of 1 July 2013.
