As of January 2015, I will be editing a lot less as I start my next book. I find Wikipedia too much of a distraction, particularly as I often get myself entangled in other people's debates and problems. In addition, the policing of the project sometimes leaves a lot to be desired, and I would rather become annoyed and frustrated by things that actually earn me money. NB, vandals: I shall check my (heavily pruned) watchlist and clean up on down days, but generally, I shall be offline and unavailable.

___________________________________________________________________

Hello, I am a British Wikipedian, editing between bouts of getting hacked off with other Wikipedians. I do get on with almost everyone though, 'cos I'm nice like that.

I wrote this and that, and occasionally delight in hustling persistent vandals and tedious, disruptive types into Wikiblock-oblivion.

If you are the kind of editor who might resort to comments such as this one:

"I hate stupid people who just edit my articles.

They denying my human rights."

then you should probably be looking for something else to do. Equally, comments such as this one [1], or this one [2] display your failure as a successful editor, or in these cases, a successful vandal. If you must vandalise, try something amusing as it is at least faintly entertaining. To me, anyway. It's also entertaining when you are blocked, which is the usual result. If you want to criticise, make sure you can string a sentence together [3]. Being unpleasant [4], [5] is a good way to shorten your wiki career, as is threatening to kill me.

  • "Almost 87% of information on wikipedia is incorrect or untrue. I'm watching and will shut this thing down with my eyes closed you bunch of hog sucking clowns."

I actually laughed out loud at when reading the last sentence of this. I only allow personal attacks on my talkpage if the user in question actually has a valid point to make; that was a nice response. The Blade of the Northern Lights (話して下さい) 04:17, 22 July 2011 (UTC)

For being my advocate against people bullying me and one of the editors on this wiki that is not corrupt, therefore adding "special flavor" to the community as the award requires. Hghyux (talk to me)(talk to others) 01:29, 27 March 2012 (UTC)

Your continuous updates of infoboxes on Formula 1 articles is so very much appreciated. In recognition of your excellent work, I award you this Special Barnstar. Well done, and keep up the good work! :-) Lradrama 08:41, 5 July 2007 (UTC)

You just beat me to correcting Kimi Raikkonen's results table! This typifies the effort you put in after each Grand Prix to ensure all of the articles are correct, and I think it deserves this barnstar. Enjoy! :) --Diniz (talk) 13:43, 21 July 2007 (UTC)

Though I was initially annoyed that you reverted some of my edits (lol), I realise that your work to F1 articles is incredible. You always seem to find little grammar errors which I don't see at first, remarkable really. Take this, I hope you'll keep contributing for a long time to come yet.

I hereby award myself this barnstar for my tireless efforts blah blah. Actually, it's to say to anyone that if they see a motorsport article in danger of deletion, let me know and I'll do whatever I can to save it. Unless it's crap, in which case I won't bother :D Bretonbanquet (talk) 14:51, 25 May 2009 (UTC)
