About Me [ edit ]

I have now been contributing to Wikipedia for over nine years, making my first edit to an article on 26 May 2011.

For those that like facts and figures here are some statistics relating to my editing history. I made my 1000th edit in January 2016 and by the end of 2016 I had edited over 2100 unique pages and made over 3600 edits in total. 2017 was a busy year for me on Wikipedia with just under 8,000 edits. On 6th November 2017 I made my 10,000th overall edit and by the end of that year I had made edits on more than 8,100 unique pages. By May 2018 I had made edits to over 10,000 different pages and on 28th November 2018 I made my 20,000th edit. In 2018 I had what was then my busiest year on Wikipedia to date and I made over 9,000 edits. My 30,000th edit was made on 6th December 2019 and 2019 proved to be my most active year in terms of edits with over 9,500 (in case you have not guessed, I quite like statistics!). Of course the value of these edits is for others to judge. You can see my contributions here.

As my edit history shows, I am interested in a wide number of subjects and have made contributions to a fairly wide range of articles. I am especially interested in articles and other material relating to Dundee (and the wider Tayside area) in Scotland, and have expanded many related articles as well as starting a few (details of these can be found further down the page). I also have a particular interest in history. As well as this I have also made quite a few edits to articles relating to various sporting events, British television series and politics and elections in the UK. I also like to try to help improve navigation on Wikipedia by working on categories and templates. Since late 2017 I have also been trying to do some work on portals and to link to them to appropriate pages. If you have any questions about any of my edits, pages I have started or discussions that I have contributed to then please feel free to use my talk page to get in contact with me - I'll aim to respond to you as quickly as I can.

Why I make edits to Wikipedia [ edit ]

A little while ago, I thought it would be worth mentioning why I make edits to Wikipedia, so I placed my ramblings on the subject here. Basically, I think Wikipedia is a widely used resource and for many people is one of the first, if not the first, point of reference when they are looking up a subject. Thus, I think contributing to it to by, among other things, adding more useful information, making access easier, flagging up possible errors and eliminating obvious mistakes, is a helpful and useful thing to do (and a satisfying one as well). While my contributions are, in the grand scheme of things, small, I would like to think that they are worthwhile and helpful. Also, as I have often enjoyed reading other peoples' work here, then I feel that it is only fair that I make my own contributions (and hope that maybe someone will find them interesting/useful).
