Hi, I'm Kosack. I originally joined Wikipedia back in 2007 and my made my first edit in May of that year. After drifting away from the site for a few years in 2010, I rediscovered the place in 2016. My main focus of editing is football with particular focus on Cardiff City and any of the club's players, managers and history.
