Achowat has been a fairly active Wikipedian for a number of years, generally doing simple Gnome Work guised by the veil of a number of IP Addresses. Since discovering the WikiProject for Parliamentary procedure, he has decided to Register up and start work when he can.

If you are here because of a perceived Conflict of Interest on my part, please see: Achowat's Conflict of Interest Disclosure


Achowat, (pronounced 'ɑtʃoʊˌwɑt), makes up part of my Vigil name. The name, in the language of the Delaware people, is W'lihan Wuliechsin Achowat which is translated in English as "He who speaks well, dangerously!". I also use the name for various log-ins across the internet, so if you see an 'Achowat' on a forum, a thread, or Twitter, chances are it's me.

Want to improve this page?[edit]

I don't own this page, it is part of the community just like any page. As it does represent me and my contributions to that Community (and to the Encyclopedia), I have a compelling interest to keep it clean and accurate. I am, however, human and have the two qualities of fallibility and limitation. If I've done something in err just go ahead and fix it.

Kudos Received[edit]

Adopt a Redirect![edit]

Just like the "Adopt a Typo" program, you can also adopt a redirect! Most common redirects to be adopted are misspellings, miscapitalization, and either over or under translation. Remember, with all things that this isn't cut and dry; due to WP:COMMONNAME and the Manual of Style there might be reasons why the redirect is preferred over the Article's name. As with everything you do, Be Bold, but not reckless. Simply go to the soft redirect page, find out What Links there, and use that as your guide. If you have any questions ask.

My adopted redirects[edit]

YesYLibertadores Cup to Copa Libertadores
YesY Pretty much every redirect to FIFA, excluding Fédération Internationale de Football Association (to be done)

To Be Adopted[edit]

Feel free to take these off my hands until I can give them the love and appreciation they need. Also feel free to add any redirects to this Redirect Orphanage if you think they could enjoy the loving embrace of an adoptive editor.
