A picture of Duncan Hull by @psd
Hello, my name is Duncan Hull, I live and work in Manchester. Most of my contributions to Wikipedia are short biographies of living scientists, technologists, engineers and mathematicians, which would otherwise be either woefully incomplete or non-existent. A particular focus has been articles about Fellows of the Royal Society, which I've tried to improve while observing the fundamental wiki-principles, especially:
- Be bold (WP:BOLD)
- Notability (WP:NOTE)
- Ignore all rules (WP:IGNORE) ... a personal favourite
- Neutral point of view (WP:NPOV)
- Biographies of living persons (WP:ALIVE)
If you have any constructive feedback or questions on articles & data I have created or edited, please post it on my talk page.
