I joined Wikipedia as an editor on June 7, 2015 after years of relying on it to find information of practical use to me and to satisfy my idle curiosity. I'm an administrator and CheckUser. I was elected to the Arbitration Committee for the 2018–19 term. I'm also a BAG member and operate the bot BU RoBOT. I'm tangentially involved with the account creation team, where I mostly assist with CheckUser-related matters. I currently live in Seattle, Washington.

Editing interests[edit]

  • Various administrative tasks (WP:SPI, edit filters, WP:BAG, etc.)
  • Copyright matters and maintaining the file namespace (WP:FFD, transferring to Commons, etc.)
  • Maintaining the template space at WP:TFD and WP:TFD/H, primarily through closing discussions and implementing those closes.
  • Categorization, including closing discussions at WP:CFD
  • Botwork, generally related to templates or WikiProject tagging. I've also recently taken on gnome-like tasks such as replacing hyphens with endashes in date ranges.
  • Canadian football biographies (don't even ask, I don't know how I got into that)

For catching an article that I deleted at WP:CSD that needed a second chance, and bringing it to my attention, I award you this defender of the wiki Barnstar! Remember, be bold, and never be afraid to say "hey, why did you do that, I think it was a mistake"! Keep up the good work. Chrislk02 Chris Kreider 16:21, 10 June 2015 (UTC)

I'm sorry for being too harsh. It was not my intention to hurt you. After looking at this [1], I realized that you were right all along and I was wrong! Please accept my sincere apology for the mistake and be rest assured that something like this won't happen again. Mona778 (talk) 04:29, 28 August 2016 (UTC)

Looks like you're not running low on barnstars as of late... but I've been meaning to hand out this one to you.

For your tireless, well-reasoned and patiently explained opposition to the recent proposals at Wikipedia talk:Conflict of interest that would weaken and carve mile-wide loopholes in the policies and practices that protect Wikipedia editors' privacy and shield them from harassment.

I'm kind of amazed that you went and dug up a 1976 article in a defunct journal, scanned all 40+ pages, and emailed it to me to help with my research. Wow. Thank you! --MopTop (talk) 17:15, 7 February 2017 (UTC)
