Look at your post. Now look at mine, back to yours. Sadly, it isn't mine. But if you follow proper Wikipedia guidelines and policies, it could look like mine. Look away. Now back. You're at a thread, full of posts your posts could look like. What should you post? Back to me. Look there. Your post is now posted. Look again. You've now been nominated for administrator thanks to the posts your posts could look like. You see, when you follow proper Wikipedia guidelines and policies, you can do anything. I'm on a horse.

Informational Tidbits[edit]

WikiGnomes are welcome to correct this user's spelling mistakes where it is obvious.

This user will make good-faith attempts to make obvious corrections to errors in placement of templates and such by other users, as well as in posts themselves where appropriate. This is not an endorsement of any such position in the template unless otherwise stated, and the original poster may correct it if I am in fact mistaken.

More About Me[edit]

I am a Virgo born in a year of the Chinese zodiac that is attributed to the Monkey. I do not understand why I have been tagged as a Monkey. Scratches himself. It's not like I do anything that a Monkey does. Searches through a neighbour's hair. Seriously, it makes no sense.

More seriously, my most recent activity has been working on getting the brand-spanking shiny new South Sudan WikiProject off the ground. Other recent article activities have been in the realm of an article about a hockey player named Nail Yakupov. He is a player on the Sarnia Sting hockey team at this time and winner of the 2010-11 Emms Family Award for Rookie of the Year. I am actively following news regarding him for the article, my first real foray into a writing project for Wikipedia (I don't count work on Glee stuff, where I have helped with existing articles including a featured list nomination that appears as a userbox). I also saved an article brought up at Deletion Review in April; it was deleted as a ten word stub and I've done some expansion with a little IP help; the result is Villa Giulia (Palermo).

I've also shown interest in participating at deletion review. I like to give my opinion on something, which can be both a good and bad thing. With that said, I try to be constructive wherever I might comment and try not to comment just for the sake of commenting. I welcome any evidence otherwise as I am sure I've done it and prefer to provide a constructive opinion. For some reason, I am finding myself enjoying those discussions in that area. Perhaps I thrive on conflict that doesn't directly involve me. Maybe I just like telling someone that the page they want restored is just a bibliography and not an article. Who knows? Nowadays my opinionated approach is visible at AN/I participating in discussions and placing resolved tags where I am able to (and occasionally myself getting involved in an issue that comes along).

I am someone who was diagnosed as having Attention Deficit Disorder (in my case without the hyperactivity), and I still believe I do not have it, I just share some common traits of it.

I am a graduate of Lambton College, which explains why I did some cleaning up of that article. Unfortunately I'm not working in my field, accounting, at this time. Maybe someday.

Nice things people have left for me[edit]

You've been amazingly civil in the midst of some heated debates; you've remained cool, and you're comments have been thoughtful and constructive - and, not just re. PC, but in general. Thanks, for being such a lovely user.  Chzz  ►  02:41, 24 April 2011 (UTC)
