Hello! I registered as a Wikipedian at the start of May, 2006.

I'm older than I should be, born in Windsor, Ontario, Canada some decades ago. I have lived in Holland Landing (in York Region, north of Toronto) since 1994.

I have a daughter who graduated with a Bachelors of Music (Classical vocal performance) from McGill University in Montreal. She previously studied through the Royal Conservatory of Music (Toronto) and performed in Opera Atelier's production of Mozart's The Magic Flute in November 2006, as one of a trio of spirits. Daddy's a wee bit proud, as you might have guessed. She taught English over in Gimje, South Korea for two years after earning her degree, and works at Medieval Times in Toronto.

I spend a lot of my Wikipedia time on articles about places and things in York Region, Ontario watching out for vandals, disambiguating things, and adding bits where I can, particularly related to Education in Ontario. I started the articles for:

and have developed the articles for Bigwin Island, Essex County, Ontario and York Region. I try to make improvements wherever I can, including providing article assessments as well as geographic coordinates for Canadian articles.

I am proud to say that I have also had several users (or rather, mis-users) blocked from editing Wikipedia, after detecting their 'vandalistic' behaviour. (Count started Dec 3, 2019: 35)

Here's a little project of interest to me: /300games. And another. And a navbox. And an article being kept for the future. And a golf list.

That's enough for now, methinx..................PKT

Few editors apologize when having sent a non-ideal warning; even fewer apologize to the affected user, and almost noone does it as professional, kind and calm as you. ~ ToBeFree (talk) 03:07, 26 September 2020 (UTC)
