You can contact me on my talk page, but please note that I have become largely dormant in terms of editing and am unlikely to respond promptly.
I am a strong proponent of the BOLD, revert, discuss cycle, and view it not so much as a dispute resolution procedure as the standard operating procedure on a wiki. If you have a problem with my edits, I want to hear from you so we can work together to make a better article. I am not a fan of the 'discuss, discuss, discuss cycle' that characterizes too many talk pages; editors who approach articles by starting discussions on talk pages to encourage discussion on possible edits can safely assume that I am ignoring them until somebody actually does something constructive.
Articles and stubs that I have started, and feel are neat, are in normal text. Articles I have messed up in some way that I feel is significant are followed by a *. My categorization scheme below reflects a personal quirk that divides articles on my motivation for writing them.
I'd like to personally thank you for helping out with working on the ITN dispatch for the Wikipedia Signpost. Hopefully, this will attract more attention to an under-manned project. Anyway, have this barnstar as a token of my gratitude. Thanks again, SpencerT♦C 21:31, 2 February 2009 (UTC)
For outstanding contributions to The Wikipedia Signpost, especially coverage of flagged revisions, I award BanyanTree the Signpost Barnstar. --ragesoss (talk) 16:53, 1 September 2009 (UTC)
Wikisource has original text related to this user:
Admins, as glorified janitors, should be accountable to the non-admin body of editors. However, adminship often calls for controversial decisions or implementations of judgments that cannot please everyone. Admins should not feel that their day-to-day moppage, or even unintended screw-ups, put their adminship at risk. This page elaborates on, and takes precedence before, the procedure listed on Category:Wikipedia administrators open to recall.
Only a user who is listed at Category:Wikipedia administrators open to recall may start a recall on my adminship. (If not one of 150+ users who have been vetted by the community and feels strongly enough about accountability to join doesn't think I've done something requiring censure, it's very unlikely that I have.) Once I am notified on my talk page, one of three things will happen:
Five more users with at least "500 mainspace edits and over one month of tenure" will repeat the request within six months from the date that the recall began. Once the sixth request is made, I will request to be desysopped. I may or may not put myself back up at WP:RFA.
Six months pass without the the necessary number of requests made. The recall will be considered unsuccessful and the slate wiped clean.
A new recall may not be started within one month of the previous ending. That's it. Hopefully there isn't a giant gaping hole in my logic.
