From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Hi, I'm an Englishman now living in New Jersey.

Most of my time on Wikipedia has been concentrated on sumo, with the help of my colleagues on WikiProject Sumo. I'm particularly interested in improving the biographies of sumo wrestlers, both past and present, as there were few such articles when I began editing in November 2006. We now have articles on every yokozuna and all active wrestlers who have top division experience. I tend to focus my writing on biographies; my very first was Asahifuji Seiya. Other sumo-related articles I've written include List of sumo record holders (I love stats) and a series on years in sumo. For my full list of articles created, see here.

I also contribute to chess articles. I played fairly regularly for a club when I lived in London and have quite a few chess books. Biographies and World Championship matches are of most interest to me. So far my biggest contribution has probably been creating My 60 Memorable Games.

I also keep an eye on Doctor Who as I am a big fan. My other interests include The Beatles, Bob Dylan, tennis and snooker.

I have brought two articles to WP:Good Article status, Takanohana Kōji and Asashōryū Akinori. I started Little Red Rooster which is now a Good Article, although I cannot claim credit for that :)

I see myself primarily as a "content creator" but I am a regular at Wikipedia:In the news/Candidates, I participate semi-regularly to Wikipedia:Article for deletion, and take a keen interest in Wikipedia:Requests for Adminship. My very first edit to Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard was to accidentally roll back another editor's comment, but I'm hoping I can overcome that inauspicious debut and perhaps contribute in a helpful way to future discussions.

Per WP:VALIDALT, I have created User:StumpyOlegMcNoleg (a Blackadder reference) just so I can see things from a new user’s perspective on occasion (specifically, see what non-autoconfirmed users see and can edit). There is also an account called Pawnking3 but this is not me.

Thank you for quality articles on sumo wrestlers, beginning with Asahifuji Seiya more than ten years ago, and probably not ending with Ōrora Satoshi, for historic portraits, for support of admin candidates and open talk, - you are an awesome Wikipedian!
