It seems sensible to put info about me and about what I'm doing / hoping to do on wikipedia here. If you want to add praise / criticism / comment, could you do it on User talk:SGBailey please.

Info about me can be found on my personal website http://ourworld.compuserve.com/homepages/SGBailey and, since I may well go through long periods when I don't do anything here - even visit - I can be contacted by email on <SGBailey@iee.org>.

I suspect that my main contribution to wikipedia will be fixing others' spelling mistakes!

My interests include Go (board game), Fairport Convention, Jethro Tull, Folk music, Mathematical games, Maps, UK places[?].

-- Steve Bailey.

Pages I've created:

Go proverb, engineering and science contrasted, On Numbers and Games, Flexography, Anilox, Sue Townsend, Kit Williams, Eddie Stobart, Cornish pasty, David Coulthard, List of international call prefixes, Seahenge, Flag fen, Edward German, Zola Budd

Pages (/topics) I've substantially altered:

Surrey, Guildford, Nim, Electronic color code, List of motorways in the United Kingdom, Dots and Boxes, List of 'years in music', Phutball, Go (board game), Karlstad, Sunne, Emerson, Lake & Palmer, Jeremy Taylor, James Stirling, Square root, Peg solitaire

Pages I want to visit often (aka Favorites - how I hate that spelling in MSIE for Britain!):

Useful stuff that I've learnt about wikpedia recapped:

  • <nowiki>...</nowiki> can be useful
  • ~~~~ signs username and date/time
  • '' is italic
  • ''' is bold
  • External link title should use ==
  • County town lists use ''' even though strictly incorrect.
  • You can include HTML comments in the page, they are hidden from searches and only work at the start of a newline which breaks lists etc. There is one between the horizontal rule and "Useful" above.
  • #REDIRECT [[Article name]]
  • Adopted orphan redirects for searching: [[Redirect article name]]
