I was once a great poet among the Heodenings, until I was displaced and sent wandering by Heorrenda, a more skillful poet.[1] When my travels carry me into the more unfrequented regions of Wikipedia, I tend to potter about, making small emendations.

I also have an alternative (non-admin) account, Trout Slap Replica,[2] for editing on non-secure computers.


  1. ^ With thanks (and apologies) to Saforrest, who wrote thus here.
  2. ^ A conflation of this and this.

Articles I've started (no doubt inadvisedly) on my travels[edit]

Stellate tchotchkes (and a codex and an intromittent organ and a bauble)—just to show that they're appreciated[edit]

Stuff that no one's interested in other than me and perhaps the barnstar givers

Our motto: "It's only hard if you make it hard"

The PENISS Prize
On behalf of the People Encouraging Niceness (and/or Eschewing Nastiness) In Society Society, I hereby award you the PENISS Prize.

The prize is the highest (and sole) honour in the gift of the Society and is awarded irregularly, on merit. It entitles the awardee to the postnominal letters P.E.N.I.S.S. (in appropriate contexts, of course).

It confers automatic membership of the Society, and it thus bestows the power to award the prize to others*, and they to others, in perpetuity. .

Remember, the more PENISSes in the world, the better for all of us. What a nice thought. Please continue your good work!

small emendations

Cornflower blue Yogo sapphire.jpg

Thank you for quality articles such as Thomas Blackburn (entomologist), Cosmographia (Bernardus Silvestris) and Claude Houghton, for service from 2006, for "small emendations" such as geocoding of articles, for "all the cool kids were doing it, so ...", for giving "really useful, detailed, clear" answers at the Teahouse, - you are an awesome Wikipedian!

You are recipient no. 2244 of Precious, a prize of QAI. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 19:57, 8 July 2019 (UTC)
