Ritchie Swann was born and lives in Ashford, Kent, UK

His partner Rhonda Merrick is also a Wikiwanker.

"I attempted to write an article about my uncle ‘Rockie Charles’ Merrick in 2012, but couldn’t overcome the difficulties on my own. At the time, I’d started dating my (now) partner Ritchie Swann. He’s a long-time editor on Wikipedia. It was only after we’d entered a serious relationship and I had two years to casually learn more about how Wikipedia works, that I decided to try again."

Rhonda enlisted him to help her friend's BLP and he got the page locked.

"In the end, it took both of us seated side-by-side at the kitchen table with our respective laptops to finish the article. Later that evening he fixed the wiki page of my FB friend who was being mocked on Wikipedia and he got the page locked so it couldn’t happen again. The article stayed, but hurtful comments about the mans family which couldn’t be properly cited anyway were banned. Ritchie had never heard of my friend and laughed when I asked him to fix the problem. It took several minutes of conversation for him to understand and to take action."

Ritchie's band Loose Change sounds like a drunken karaoke session.


He's got a million of them....


We have made it a goal to hit twenty posts this year. We know that the IRC copypastes are annoying and obsolete, so we have to find twenty subjects. Use the comments section to send me leads, thank you.
