Buaidh
This editor is a Master Editor III and is entitled to display this Bufonite Editor Star.
The Gàidhlig noun "buaidh" means victory, triumph, and success.

The Wikipedian  Buaidh  is a public advocate for conservation, energy efficiency, and multimodal transportation; a licensed Professional Engineer; an amateur historian and geographer; a rosarian, cartophile, velophile, ferroequinologist, decorated combat veteran, cancer survivor, and a loveable curmudgeon.

My Wikimedia niche is the care and feeding of large and complex databases. I frequently handle geographic and census data. I am currently ranked somewhere among the top 200 Wikipedians by number of edits to the English-language Wikipedia. (The number of edits made to Wikipedia in no way corresponds to the significance of contributions to Wikipedia, although it does correspond to the width of one's britches.)

Please feel free to leave me a message at User talk:Buaidh, or e-mail me at Special:EmailUser/Buaidh.

Yours aye,
 Buaidh
