I created an account on 3 January 2007, but did not start regularly editing until 2009. As the box on the right says, please leave me a message if I have made a mistake during my editing. Even though I've been here for a few years now, I'm constantly learning about how Wikipedia works. You'll usually find me lurking around articles relating to Australian soap operas
and Neighbours , which I'm trying to improve, expand and source with the help of Home and Away Raintheone. Other areas of interest include; films, songs, books, fashion designers, works of art, Jane Austen, , The Archers and Holby City . I'm sure I'll edit just about anything though. The Drew Carey Show
I'm easily distracted from projects, so I often work on lots of things at once. I'm always trying to finish off the many article drafts I have in my userspace! I sometimes prefer to collaborate on an article, but I hate others taking content from or editing my userspace drafts without dropping me a note on my talk page first. Good manners cost nothing! I also pop into
WP:ITN/C occasionally and undertake a bit of wikignoming. I created my first article on 10 September 2009, received my first Good Article on 30 December 2009, my first Did You Know on 23 March 2010 and my first Featured List on 30 April 2010.
I like people who are a little bit famous.
I like embracing my inner nerd.
I like Green Gummy Bears.
I like ampersands (&).
I like the word like.
I like rockin' out.
I like to laugh.

Thanks to June Gloom for so many articles. US TV episodes and even a Neighbours episode (is that c.7000 still to do?). I particularly like your article on
Ruth Archer who is a lady I feel I know well. Your support of anglophone drama is impressive. I imagine you have a wonderwall of tellys and a dozen radios :-) Can I thank you on behalf of the Wiki, DYK project and myself. Victuallers ( talk) 07:47, 6 May 2016 (UTC)
