- About me
I joined the English Wikipedia in 2005, but didn't really start to get involved until some time later. I tried my hand at writing, but most of my content work has been somewhat gnome-ish. Early on, I found that my main calling was to do behind-the-scenes work such as patrolling new pages and cleaning up vandalism. To further those ends, I became an administrator in 2008. In 2011, I began to specialize in the patrolling of sockpuppetry cases, and after working as an SPI clerk for a few months, I was appointed as a CheckUser. I was granted Oversight access in 2013.

- As for the username: I'm not sure where I first heard or read the name, but it has always amused me. Anyway, I am a huge fan of Monty Python, and the name always struck me as being somewhat Pythonesque. I was later stunned to learn that the preconceived notion that I already had was wrong! Well, you learn something new every day, and this is Wikipedia, after all... Someone even my old username at one of the reference desks. N.B. While I take my admin responsibilities seriously, I take myself about as seriously as this silly username.
