Hi my name is Jake and I am from colorful Colorado in the U.S. I am a touchy person sometimes, if I'm approached in a negative way I tend to get defensive. I will reflect on what people say and I may not immediately agree but when more then one person tells me I'm off base I will definitely think about things. I will attempt to help new editors too when I have the time and if I think they have something that can be improved. I am definitely a deletionist and I believe in tagging anything that doesn't meet the standards even if it's a new article.
For a commendable effort on working with a new editor. While it didn't ultimately end well, it was certainly not for lack of effort or any other fault on your part. Please continue to work with new editors and try to gently introduce them to Wikipedia. SeraphimbladeTalk to me 17:36, 10 January 2013 (UTC)

For attempting to put out multiple fires at once while remaining cool, calm and collected. Turns out he was determined to burn the house down anyway, but you certainly did your best. Keep up the good work! Stalwart111 12:52, 11 January 2013 (UTC)
