Default So just what do we know about Doug?

I bet I got your attention with that header. What I was actually wondering is this:

There's no article about Doug on Wikipedia.
Now, before anyone goes "so who bloody cares about Wikicrapia" -- it's the very first (and often last) place a lot of people go to when they want to find out a few facts about someone, so IMHO there is value in having material there. It doesn't need to be much - and for most of the band members, there isn't - but something is clearly better than nothing.

Besides, the only other one not to have an article there is Paul Johnson. Even Durham has one.

The good part is, Wikipedia is something where we can actually make a contribution instead of just complaining about how some mods somewhere aren't doing a good enough job. The coding is pretty simple (and you can always cut n' paste) so I could make a preliminary Doug article... but I don't think I have got enough facts about him to do that.

Have a look at the other ones for comparison. What similar stuff about Doug can we fill in here?

Well, some years ago I wrote the Italian page on Doug and I thought one day I would have translated it into English...but I haven't had that much time last three years!!!

Fingers and caflyergirl, did you look at the other pages I linked to? I'm not talking about information about his private life or anything.

I happen to maintain Nigel's page for him. I will ask Doug if he wants one and if so exactly what info he would like up. The problem w/ most of those type pages is the very fact that people can edit and add info at will...I have had many occasions where false and pretty nasty information was put on Nigel's page for no reason other than someone must of thought it was fun to mess with it and the fact that they could. It has also happened to the Saxon Wiki page. So it's possible Doug has had pages up in the past and deleted them himself.

But as I said, will ask him and see what he says

I know what you are saying Khelatar but I don't agree with things been set up without prior knowledge of the person concerned. Anyhow Caflyergirl will see if Doug is happy to have a page.
