User:Buaidh

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

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 Wikimedian  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 loveable curmudgeon.

Like many other Wikipedia editors, this editor:

  1. Is of predominately European ancestry.
  2. Is a native English language speaker.
  3. Lives in a predominately English-speaking country.
  4. Lives in a predominately Christian country.
  5. Lives in a predominately prosperous country.
  6. Is a straight male nerd.

Unlike many other Wikipedia editors, this editor:

  1. Is more than 65 years of age.
  2. Is an engineer and a scientist.
  3. Is a secularist and a tolerant atheist.
  4. Prefers American spelling, British punctuation, Mexican food, Canadian manners, the serial comma, and the International System of Units.

Despite the above, this editor endeavors to be as objective as humanly possible.

My Wikimedia niche is the care and feeding of large and complex databases. I frequently handle geographic and census data. Despite a fatal illness, I am still ranked somewhere among the 200 most prolific Wikipedians by number of edits to the English-language Wikipedia. I like to help and encourage female users and users under 18 and over 50 years of age.

While I'm not particularly fond of userboxes, I've created over 2300 of them, about as many as anyone. I hope to encourage new users to contribute to the English language Wikipedia, especially users in small countries and non-English speaking nations. Some of my creations are shown in my galleries.

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

Yours aye,
 Buaidh 

PS – Please don't blame me for Brexit. Scotland and Northern Ireland voted to remain. What's next?

Lexit[edit]


LEXIT: Moon to leave Earth orbit

Lunatics voted overwhelmingly Thursday for the Moon to leave Earth orbit despite apocalyptic warnings from government leaders, scientists, economists, psychologists, academic scholars, and religious icons.[1] Thousands of Lunatics were seen in wild and rapturous celebrations in cities and towns around the world. Lunatics carried banners declaring their Lunar citizenship and denouncing Earthly bounds. Shouts of "Luna for Lunatics" and "Leave Earth" were heard. Lunatics appear unfazed by estimates that it will take more than £2,100,000,000,000,000 and millennia to remove the Moon from Earth orbit. While Jupiter, Titan, and Saturn have been mentioned as possible future lunar partners, it appears that most Lunatics prefer to wander the asteroid belt asserting their independence.
