Flag of Australia.svg Welcome to Peterdownunder's Userpage! Eureka Flag.svg


I am an administrator, oversighter and checkuser on the Simple English Wikipedia. If you need help with oversight, please email me directly, do not leave a message here.

I enjoy writing with the challenge of using Simple English. I worked with students with learning disabilities for more than 30 years. I have a special interest in adding Australian pages to the Wikipedia. If you would like to help with an Australian page check the list here for needed articles. I am always happy to help new editors with any questions - anytime.

Today is Monday, August 13, 2018, and the current time is 03:15 (UTC/GMT). There are currently 136,797 articles.
