Welcome to the user page of Trident13

on Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia that anyone can edit.

Group motto:
"Education and information is the route to understanding each other - and making this world a better place!"

Personal thought after 4years here:
"Some of us with knowledge or talent, that we can reference-back up with the ability to research via reading,
were meant to create articles;
other often more aggressive types were meant to administer."

Major learning point: before becoming an administrator, try 10,000+ bits of creation!

Welcome to my user page![edit]

I was introduced to this place by an experienced editor in April 2006, after he wrote an article about an online place I was a member of. After a heated debate over that article between current and former members of that place, a lot of sillyness, a three reverts removal, and involving a request for mediation - let's just say I learnt a lot about Wikipedia quickly!

The result of which was I got involved, and I enjoy writing or improving articles, mainly in the areas of:

  • Business
  • Motorcycles - I own four: 1956 BSA Golden Flash, 1973 Triumph Trident, 1978 Norton, 1998 Vespa ET4
  • Sports - Rugby, Football, Sailing (but not in that order if the sun's out)
  • Theatre & Entertainment - including Music
  • Cooking & Restaurants

If you have any questions about me, articles I have edited/contributed to, or you just want to communicate - then please leave a message on my Talk Page

----> Leave me a new message <-----

I will be the first to admit I don't always get it right - and the typed internet is not sometimes the best medium through which to have clear communication. But I hope the contribution I make is useful and valued ... even though Jimbo Wales doesn't think so, and made a personal attack on me. Lessson from this: (1) just because the Daily Mail holds you to account, and because you clearly don't understand the British Media/are an active supporter of the Labour Party, no need to get upset Jimbo; (2) Trust NO ONE around here, let the facts speak for themselves - even when the supporting references do change over a period of time!

My User Name[edit]

Trident13 is a reflection on a number of personal pieces in life:

  • Trident - the Anglican religious triumvirate; that there always seem to be three things/choices; Oh, and it also happens to be one of the models of motorcycle I own
  • 13 - unlucky for some? OK, sometimes for me as well, but also has a big recurring tie-in in my life

List of Projects[edit]

For me, the joy of Wikipedia is creation - although after a few of your articles get vandalised, you soon get into Troll hunting!

You can see the projects I am working on within my stub projects page, while the following is a list of articles which I started or heavily edited, which are now in use and on which I occasionally add a few extra's to:
