I do lots with SABRE Maps [1] where I'm currently the Maps Co-ordinator. Please let me know if you'd like to get involved in that - we're always looking for help!

In addition, I'm a SABRE Wiki Administrator, so if you need help with the Wiki, then feel free to shout up.

I'm also the founder member of the SABRE ex-Presidents' Society. You'll find us in the corner of Awaydays looking at maps and documents and muttering how it was never like this in our day...

Pathetic Motorways

I also look after the famous (or infamous...) Pathetic Motorways, and I used to do lots with this too, but I haven't had sufficient time in recent years to give it the love and attention it deserves.

SABRE Wiki Current Projects
  • Getting all of the items in Category:Wolverhampton (and the surrounding areas) looking decent. The quality ratings are useful for that sort of thing, as are the lack of maps.
  • Finding out-of-copyright maps for use in defunct road infoboxes, for which Defunct roads without a map is invaluable
  • Adding Help pages. Places, Roads, Signs, Road Features and Categories to start with.
  • Documenting all the billion inter-connected templates in use on the SABRE Wiki, most of which have massive effects on the job queue, so can't all be done at one. Orphan templates can be found at User:Steven/Orphans
  • Doing a million things with SABRE Maps, such as lots of boring behind-the-scenes stuff including keeping the Coverage Project pages up to date, and getting excited when we get new maps to show off.
  • Whatever is currently in User:Steven/Sandbox, which probably isn't that much.

Random things about me

I like:

  • Road archaelogy
  • Digging through dusty archive documents
  • Maps!
  • Custard creams
  • Proper counties
  • Being at Molineux
  • Being at the CKW Stadium New Bucks Head

I don't like:

  • People who are up their own rears
  • Archives whose indexing is rubbish, getting me all over-excited for no readily apparent reason
  • Bourbon creams
  • Daft new-fangled administrative areas where there's no administration
  • People who can't work out the difference between Wolverhampton and Birmingham
