This editor started editing Wikipedia anonymously on 1 June 2005, and figured out a week later that it would be more fun to get a user name to keep score of contributions. The first edit under this identity was on 8 June 2005 — 14 years, 4 months and 6 days ago.

Most of this editor's activity of late has been as a "WikiGnome", happily copy-editing, fixing syntax, punctuation, spelling and grammar, and so on, although it seems some Wikipedians don't quite understand or appreciate what Gnomes do. Since joining the Wikipedia community, the Gnome has honed graphics skills with GIMP and Inkscape, and has been able to contribute original works here and at Wikimedia Commons, as well as rework and improve submissions made by others, including some fairly advanced photo restorations. The Gnome has been programming computers since 1971, an electrical engineer since 1977, occasional flier of light airplanes and helicopters, and so tends to gravitate to science, technology, medical and aviation subjects.

In case you're wondering, hydrargyrum is Latinized Greek for the metallic element known as mercury, or colloquially, quicksilver. It is called Quecksilber in German and dzīvsudrabs in Latvian. It is element number 80 with the symbol Hg on the Periodic Table of the Elements.
