You're better off talking to me. :-) User_talk:MacRusgail
p.s. This page is a mess... I know. As you can see, I tend to focus more on text than formatting!
MacRùsgail - short explanation
MacRùsgail/MacCruslaig etc is a trickster figure in Gaelic folktales.
I've contributed to a number of articles, in fact, so many I can't remember them all! Although I tend to edit/create Scottish/Celtic interest articles, I have worked on a wide variety of topics. These are in no particular order.
Articles I started (Note: I didn't write all of these originally, some of them are translations etc) Jakob Jakobsen, Mum and the Sothsegger, various Twin Peaks stuff (One Eyed Jacks (Twin Peaks), Bookhouse Boys etc etc), Manx people (was a redirect), Huguenots in South Africa, Mod revival, Stuart Adamson, Crevichon, Auregnais, Cauchois, Sercquiais, List of English loughs (more "loughs" in England than "lakes" in Scotland - believe it or not!), Stefanie Zweig, Rankine's method, Rankine body, The Thirteenth Tribe (nutcase magnet!), List of rivers of Wales, Tropical nations at the Winter Olympics, Kernewek Kemmyn, Dinah Morris, Jawbone (musician), Languages of the Faroe Islands, Languages of Svalbard (obscure, even by my standards!), Orroroo, South Australia, Christian Hebraist, John Barr (poet), USSR national rugby union team, Tasmanian Rugby Union, Flora and fauna of the Kerguelen Islands, Drinking horn, South Georgia Pipit, Solomon and Marcolf, Thomas Gisborne Gordon
Articles I keep an eye on, or have contributed a lot to Arthur Koestler, Ostern (Red Western), Canadian Gaelic, Ku Klux Klan regalia and insignia, Isles of Scilly, Constitutional status of Cornwall, Pan-Celticism, Jindyworobak Movement, Casquets, West Country dialects, -stan, Emma Jung, Cornish people, List of places with fewer than ten residents, British and Irish Lions (still too anglocentric), Sunwise, West Falkland, East Falkland, Lafonia, Coregonus albula, Daniel Defoe, Politics of England, Non-Trinitarian churches, Proposals for new Australian States, Little England beyond Wales, Chernobyl in the popular consciousness, Diminutive, English Channel, North Sea, List of active autonomist and secessionist movements, History of the Falkland Islands, List of tautological place names
Scottish related stuff (which falls into one or the other of the categories above, but probably belongs together) Doric dialect (Scotland), List of islands of Scotland, History of the Jews in Scotland, Islam in Scotland, Hinduism in Scotland, Scottish place names in other countries (Australia, Canada, NZ, South Africa, USA), Scottish coinage, Scottish weights and measures, Douglas (play), Ulva, Edward Leithen, Scottish Renaissance, Berwick-upon-Tweed, Cairn, Traditional dyes of the Scottish Highlands, Martin Martin, Rocabarraigh, Wendy Wood, Helen Cruickshank, Taghairm, Dechmont Law, Nor Loch, Iain Lom, Acts of Union 1707, Margaret McMurray, Galwegian Gaelic, William Neill, Areas of Edinburgh, William John Macquorn Rankine, Ednam, Heart of Midlothian (Royal Mile), List of newspapers in Scotland, William Wallace (Scottish composer), John Blackwood McEwen, List of rivers of Scotland, Islands of the Forth, Religion of the Yellow Stick, Canntaireachd, Scottish pork taboo, Sawney, Paddie Bell, Kidnapped (graphic novel), Anglo–Scottish border, Daily Record (Scotland), Catacol Whitebeam, St Kilda House Mouse, Australian rules football in Scotland, Scottish coinage
Stuff that's interesting, but I haven't had much to do with Soviet Moonshot, Unusual articles (But being wikipedia, can you guess which ones are for real?!), Islamic democracy, Christian witches, Lost, Aberdeenshire
