I'm Warofdreams, the name taken from the title of a book by Angela Carter. I'm from Sheffield in the UK.

I've been a contributor to Wikipedia since August 2003, an administrator since February 2004, and I went to the first ever Wikimeet, in London. I'm also a bureaucrat, but there must be a better term for that. I was a member of the founding board of Wikimedia UK.

I've been writing articles mainly on architecture, politics and history, and just occasionally on popular culture, the natural world and all manner of other topics. I sometimes tinker with templates and get involved in WikiProjects.

Quotes[edit]

"Finally, we'd like to announce a fun project loosely associated with Nupedia, Wikipedia. Have a look and write a paragraph or two!" Front page of Nupedia, January 2001
"If we create 1000 pages a month, we will be able to hit 100,000 pages in only 8 years." User:Jimbo Wales, February 2001
"Our getting 100,000 articles is definitely not out of the question. Indeed, it's also far from impossible that we could have 1,000,000 articles someday; there are, surely, 1,000,000 topics of discussion in existence." Why Wikipedia is so great, April 2001 [1]
"Wikipedia is growing at a dizzying rate. Wikipedia produces articles at over 1,300 per month." Why Wikipedia is so great, April 2001 [2]
