Hello. I'm a guy. I'm an American. I'm an administrator. That's all you really need to know. I like helping out with categorizing the uncategorized pages (which is what I do 90% of the time). I'm a huge fan of categorization. I do have an alternate username, The Doctor, for the purpose of editing on public computers. That account is not admin-flagged.

In Progress/Ongoing[edit]

Short-term:

Long-term:

Very long-term:

  • There are a ton of events on the near-horizon for which Wikipedia as a whole needs to prepare:
    • Barack Obama's inauguration as president and the swearing-in of his cabinet and administration should be addressed.
      • The Cabinet officers themselves will need to be updated and infoboxed.
      • Obama's appointment of almost 200 new Ambassadors will require writing dozens of new articles, as well as the updating of our existing lists and succession boxes.
    • The 111th United States Congress will soon be in session. Updating the lists of Senators and Representatives by state, updating succession boxes and if need be writing new articles for new members is a priority.
    • The 2010 United States Census will change the basic demographic information of almost 30,000 incorporated and unincorporated communities. A bot should be created to update our thousands of U.S. city and town articles when the census data becomes available in 2010.
