My name is Guy Hamilton. I live in Chepstow, Wales - and, in the past, lived in the Wirral, Devon, and Bristol.
My main areas of interest are:
  • the history and topography of the Monmouthshire area - which sometimes spills over into editing other articles concerning other parts of Wales and England;
  • the history and development of blues, R&B and rock music, loosely defined, and associated genres (mostly before about 1980) - with a particular interest in more obscure (but still notable) performers, songwriters, record producers, etc. - and in recent months focusing on largely forgotten music hall and vaudeville performers, writers, etc.;
  • ensuring that matters of breaking and developing news of lasting notability, especially in the UK, are covered fairly and neutrally;
.... but I quite often delve into other areas as well, including those in which I have some professional experience.
I'm generally happy to help other editors develop articles in those or related areas - just ask - but have very little interest in being associated with any of the FA / GA / DYK or admin processes, or in competitive editing.
Listed below are the new pages I've started (in bold), and other articles where I've undertaken major edits.

Association of Wikipedians Who Dislike Making Broad Judgments About the Worthiness of a General Category of Article, and Who Are in Favor of the Deletion of Some Particularly Bad Articles, but That Doesn't Mean They Are Deletionists

Est omnino difficile iudicare inclusionis meritum cuiusdam rei in encyclopædia cum ratio sciendi quid populi referat incerta sit, sed nihilominus aliquid encyclopædiam dedecet

It is generally difficult to judge the worthiness of a particular topic for inclusion in an encyclopedia considering that there is no certain way to know what interests people, but some topics nevertheless are not fit for an encyclopedia.

This motto reflects the desire of these Wikipedians to be reluctant, but not entirely unwilling, to remove articles from Wikipedia.
