My name is Jethro. It was a nickname given to me by some friends of mine who liked this rock band with a flautist. Jethrobot was inspired by the same group of friends after watching the movie I, Robot (film). In the weird way that nicknames tend to stick and how their recipients have no control over this, the name Jethrobot stuck. And so it was I, Jethrobot. I modified the -bot to -BT because "bot" might cause new users to think I'm not a real boy. The BT doesn't stand for anything particular.
I didn't edit between 2007-2011 (because I forgot my password); I think I made a handful of minor, anonymous contributions under IPs, though I no longer remember them. When I came back in 2011, I was curious about deletion; I knew it was easy to create content on Wikipedia, but didn't know much about how it was removed. So, I started spending my time watching and participating in Articles for deletion discussions and reading up on this.
You'll notice some breaks in my edit history if you check it out. I took these breaks because I was in graduate school where I prioritized my research and work over other interests. I finished with school in 2013, which allowed me to focus more of my time here.
Edward Francis Anhalt - A community organizer in Milwaukee, and probably one of the most challenging articles I've had in the face of an AfD.
Engineering psychology - Mostly got involved in this one during its AfD. I initially thought it should be deleted, but I ended up cleaning it up and making fixes during the AfD and after it was kept.
Benjamin Moore & Co. - Kind of looked like a copyvio at first, but wasn't. This isn't a particularly long article, but the company received some coverage and several awards for its paint products, so I added in content to reflect these findings.
Merz Apothecary - Started as a stub, and found some decent sources about its history to flesh out the article a bit more.
Saint Maighneann - Initially speedily deleted as a copyvio, but I encouraged and worked with another editor to rewrite it and flesh it out a bit more.
Taiko - Just an article that needed lots of improvement, like having nearly zero citations for instance.
Contra dance - Folk dancing tradition descended from French/English dances. Easy to learn, and lots of fun (I've been dancing since 2008!)
 A new editor has this to say after being feeling pushed away by warnings and incorrect reverts identified as vandalism to her contributions. We all need to be careful of being BITEy.
Iryna Harpy (talk·contribs) comments on how in their (and definitely my) childhood, Wikipedia is the blow-your-mind kind of futuristic stuff we dreamed about: "the stuff of science fiction", she says. I definitely agree.
Well, they don't just get up and walk over to the discussion all by themselves! I hang out on WP:AfD and make those notes, a task called Deletion Sorting or DelSorting for short. It helps deletion discussions get more visibility from editors interested in those topics. And there's nothing worse than a stale deletion discussion with no comments.
You asked for an explanation at the RfA. If you don't mind I will answer here rather than take up room at the RfA. I have 5 adult children and 13 grandchildren. When my second son was 10 years old, he carved his name into a bus stop bench. I saw it and asked if he had done it. He said he did. We went to the bus stop, waited for the next bus, and I had my son apologize to the driver for his act of vandalism. The driver was quiziczl and probably didnt have any idea what was going on. But...my son knew there would be consequences to his actions. I dont know what User:Sigma's act against Conservitopia was. He will not elaborate. But I get the impression that he didnt UN-do it. Even now, a year later he could do something, anything. His regret and apology to wikipedia editors is meaningless. ```Buster SevenTalk 07:08, 9 October 2012 (UTC)
I would argue that a sincere expression of regret of one's poor judgment or an apology is never meaningless, but I can understand that this might not be sufficiently satisfactory for some, and that a clearer undoing of harm would be valuable.

Meaningless in the sense that Wikipedia and its editors were not "the harmed", not the victim of his vandalism. So why apologize to us. He might as well go to Amazon.com and say he regrets his actions. They dont mean anything since they are directed at the wrong party. I accept his expression of regret and don't intend to sound vindictive. From the supports I get that he is a good editor. This little delay in his admin coronation will most likely do him good. Nice to meet you. ```Buster SevenTalk 07:34, 9 October 2012 (UTC)
