Yotcmdr: Okay, First things first, tell us about yourself, where you are from, what do you do (ie School/Work)?
Bluegoblin7: OK, well on-wiki I'm known as Bluegoblin7, and my real name is Jack Gordon. I live in Derbyshire in the UK and I was born in London. I'm currently in in secondary education (GCSEs) and I'm studying Drama, ICT and Geography as my personal choices.
Yot: What got you involved in editing Wikipedia?
Bluegoblin7: The first edit I remember making to Wikipedia was as an IP. I didn't know anything about it and saw the edit button. I clicked it, and went on to delete a large amount of text and insert gibberish. That article was Island_Line,_Isle_of_Wight.
BG: I then decided to create an account in Feb 2007.
BG: And joined a wikiproject.
Yot: Mhhh, you naughty vandal!
BG: (laughs) Didn't most people start out as a vandal? And it wasn't intentional!
Yot: I don't know, I didn't!
BG: However, i didn't do much for a few months, before i massively expanded en:National Tramway Museum and got more involved. Everything sort of branched from there!
Yot: Good, good!
BG: I became active at SEWP in October 2008 after getting disillusioned with the English project
Yot: Very well, let's continue
Yot: What sort of things are you most involved in, with Wikipedia?
BG: At the SEWP I'm most active with this newsletter, Simple News, our DYK section, and I also run 3 (Soon to be 5!) bots
BG: I also create articles, participate in discussions and revert vandalism, and I'm active in our (V)GA areas and help clerk there mainly.
Yot: OK, good
Yot: And are there any topics that interest you particularly?
BG: Yes, my favourite topic is transport, primarly in Britain and particularly heritage tramways and historical tramways; also British Rail.
BG: I also have an interest in BBC television programmes as well as English, in particular novels and novelists
Yot: Really, which BBC television programmes?
BG: Well BBC wise things like Spooks, Hustle, Silent Witness, etc.
Yot: Is there anything you'd change at SEWP?
BG: Yes, there's an awful lot I'd like to change at SEWP at the moment.
Yot: Could you expand?
BG: As I'm sure everyone is aware we have recently lost several of our best editors and I'm sure many more are on their way out...
BG: This is due to all the drama that has plagued the wiki recently, RfA, FR, Tharnton etc.
BG: No wiki is gonna be drama free.
BG: But we can minimise it by certain users just not making a fuss at any little thing
Yot: Yes, I agree.
Yot: Is there anything you'd like to add about yourself, something uncommon you know or that you can do?
Yot: Ok, Thanks you very much for your time.
BG: You're welcome!
