How long I've been here: My earliest logged in edit was on November 7, 2003 at 13:56. I edited the Yang Liwei article (Wow I've been here over three years)
Previous Identity: I used to be known around these parts as Enceladus (this link just takes you back to this page). I've put in a request for a moving all my contributions to this username but it could take a couple of months before that happens. I had about 1100 edits on that username. On my current username I have at least 3149 edits (that figure really isn't that helpful as I have been image tagging which means that I get lots of edits for doing very little).
Education: The Primary school I attended was Kew School — I wonder what the odds of it surviving Articles for Deletion twice are?
Belief System: I believe in the Invisible Pink Unicorn
Operating system: Ubuntu Linux
I am a member of the Association of Wikipedians Who Dislike Making Broad Judgements About the Worthiness of a General Category of Article, and Who Are In Favor of the Deletion of Some Particularly Bad Articles, but That Doesn't Mean They are Deletionist

Interests at Wikipedia
Well as you can see from the articles above that I've worked on, I'm mainly interested in spaceflight, usually American as there is alot of information on these spaceflights. Alot of the time though I spend just browsing and correcting issues as I see them. I'm spending alot of time tagging images at the moment as well. Remember to be bold when editing anything that I've written. Chances are that I've made some terrible spelling mistake (for the life of me I can never spell separate right) or some grammatical error (wrong tense usually).
I think that "If you do not want your writing to be edited mercilessly and redistributed at will, do not submit it" should be posted on every new users page. There seem to be some people who think that they own articles.

I've lost count of how many times this page has been vandalised. Some of the more weird ones have been:
- "Aged 2 (even though I look gay!)"
- "Evil Monkey was not accepted on hotornot.com, as he does not look over 18, he was predicted to be 12! OMG w00t lol wat a nob."
- "I am a faggot with no life so I take stupid photos of myself and post them on wikipedia. i jack off all day and suck at life."
- "I am ugly and need not a life, but a death"
- An ASCII Monkey
- Someone with an odd obsession with "daiper sex"
- On a talk page I was called a "childish brat"
Went along to this website and according to them I am:
Economic Left/Right: -2.00
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -1.69
I got a score of 96, so I'm in the optimal, most productive range..
Barnstars and other things
For your rapid-fire anagrammatical intellect, here's a cookie. -- brian0918 04:05, 16 Mar 2005 (UTC)
Your suggestion of People's Republic of America as our millionth article seems to have fired Wikipedians' imagination. I was particularly amused by its inclusion in Wikipedia:List of countries where Wikipedia is banned. I award you this cookie for your inspiration.-gadfium 09:05, 26 Mar 2005 (UTC)
I, Knowledge Seeker, award you this Editor's Barnstar for your strong work in reverting vandalism (and your excellent contributions to astronomy articles).]]
I, Kaiba, present you with this barnstar for your constant battles against vandals.
