My name is Simon. I am based in north-west England and started making contributions in February 2005. I mainly edit articles relating to football, and sometimes do New pages patrol if I'm bored. I work in a scientific field, but I tend to view editing science articles as too much like being at work. Note to self: edit more science articles, people will think you can't handle anything thats not football.
Articles regarded as good despite having portions written by me
Manchester City F.C., FIFA World Cup, Football (soccer), FA Premier League, City of Manchester Stadium, Bert Trautmann, 1956 FA Cup Final, William McGregor and 1930 FIFA World Cup are featured articles; English football champions, List of Manchester City F.C. managers, Manchester City F.C. seasons and Record home attendances of English football clubs are featured lists. Shaun Goater, FIFA World Cup Trophy, Paul Dickov, Elite Ice Hockey League, Robbie Fowler, Georgi Kinkladze, Tommy Johnson, Ken Barnes, Sam Cowan, Hyde Road, William Sudell, Frank Swift, 1904 FA Cup Final, San Marino national football team, 1967–68 Manchester City F.C. season, Neil Young (footballer born 1944), 1969 FA Cup Final, 1926 FA Cup Final, 1933 FA Cup Final,Manchester City F.C. in European football and Roy Paul are good articles. I also got Scotland national football team through FAC, but that was mostly polishing as it was nearly featured level already.
Of late my contribution to featured material has mostly consisted of helping others with copyediting, give or take a good article or two. If you need help with or advice in getting a sport related article to good or featured status, please do not hesitate to ask on my talk page.
Subpages and other miscellaneous stuff
- Based upon my experiences of developing and peer reviewing football club articles, I once tried to put together some editing advice on the subject. Maybe one day I'll get around to completing it. The current version can be found at On Football.
