I'm away for a few days. If it's a username blocking issue just do what you think as we are mostly singing from the same song sheet. Secretlondon (talk) 11:46, 5 April 2024 (UTC)

Hello. My first edit was on 7 September 2003, and I've been an administrator since 9 November 2003. I was a bureaucrat for a few years but I'm not any more.

2022 Update[edit]

Retraining as a healthcare assistant. Loving actual patient contact. Beware the 12 hour shifts.

I'm mostly fiddling with stuff and hanging out on WP:UAA.

2021 Update[edit]

Being told you need to edit or lose your admin bit brought me back. I'd only had it since 2003. It'd be good to get 20 years, no?

I'm burnt out from working for the NHS during the Covid pandemic. Now working part-time. I'd prefer sick pay to claps, thanks.

Currently working on In The News articles on the front page (the actual linked articles, not the In The News process).


Apparently you can't do a PhD part time whilst working full-time and pay your rent in London, never mind stay sane. I'm not here very much but if I am it's to scratch itches.

I've made an account, user:secretlady for editing on public computers.

I was working on articles connected to the Russian Space Forces, for no particular reason. Never edit on your own area for your sanity.

I love data, metadata and researching start-class articles. Publicly accessible satellite photography is wonderful. Microformats are great. Breadth not depth.

Useful things that it would take a while to find otherwise

Articles I have worked on recently[edit]

Incomplete - just collected here for my ease. Not bragging.

I'm told that Zotero can export refs in Wikipedia format however I've not used. This is the nearest I've come to a wiki reference manager. I'm a big fan of list defined references as I hate editing articles which are full of citation data. However once you've moved the references to the end you can/should add as much metadata as you can - citation templates.


Before someone deletes all my local election results work as cruft please at least transwiki it somewhere. Hours of work, and the only place on the net you can find this info.
