I have been a member of Miraheze since July 2016 and joined mainly because it offered everything I needed to get my projects started. I have enjoyed being a part of this community ever since, although lately I have not been active on Meta due to working on my own projects. The idea behind Miraheze is an inspirational one. The founders, and later members of staff, have created something unique and those that help out in their spare time are a credit to this community. I would like to thank everyone who has helped with my previous requests and I hope that Miraheze will be the driving force behind everyone's projects for many years to come.
I was born in the 1970's and have lived in England all my life. I enjoy reading historical fiction, cycling, hiking, amateur photography and visiting one of my favourite places in the world, the Lake District in the northern county of Cumbria.
I am not a member of staff nor am I involved any administrative roles within Meta. I am an administrator here on Commons.
After a long break away, I am interested in continuing to work on uploading photographs for the repository.
My own wiki project
I started The Lonsdale Battalion many years earlier in 2005. In those days it was very different and only existed on paper. Since then it has gone through several different changes, and everything from that point is the result of originally discovering that my maternal great-grandfather, who enlisted in the 11th Service Battalion (Lonsdale) of the Border Regiment, died on the first day of the. Wanting to learn more about this was the driving force behind the creation of the site today, which is still very much a work-in-progress. The rest is history and more about how it all started can be seen on my "About" page. It can feel a little overwhelming knowing that this project will never really be complete because there is just so much that can be written about and included to improve the content.
Main projects of this wiki include:
There are several other smaller and lesser-used projects on the go. These are worked on when time allows.
