Ivanvector is a professional accountant and advanced-level student of the Certified General Accountant (CGA) designation. Originally from the city of London, Ontario, he has resided in the Greater Toronto Area since 2007, and the City of Toronto since 2008.

Ivanvector can be found online via his Twitter account, through his blog, and occasionally even in real life.

Education[edit]

Ivanvector holds an Ontario Secondary School Diploma from St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Secondary School in London. He graduated in 1998 and completed an Ontario Academic Credit year in 1999.

From 1999 to 2002, Ivanvector was enrolled in the Bachelor of Engineering Science program at the University of Western Ontario, studying electrical engineering. He withdrew from the program in 2002. He then enrolled in the electronics engineering technology program at Fanshawe College in London, withdrawing in 2004.

In 2005, Ivanvector enrolled in the Certified General Accountant professional certification program. He is currently an advanced-level student.

Userboxen[edit]

Ivanvector previously added userboxen to his user page to connect with users with similar interests and to be included in lists. Because of issues getting them to line up on the page, he has removed most of them. He may add your userbox if you tell him about it or he finds it interesting or amusing.

Deletionism[edit]

incl This user is an inclusionist.
DGAF This user can't be arsed, and hopes some day you will join them.

Ivanvector has self-identified his early participation in many AfD discussions as blatantly deletionist. Upon reflection and having built some wiki experience, Ivanvector holds the view that high standards of inclusion must be withheld by the Wikipedia community, but this doesn't necessarily mean that every offending article must be deleted. Ivanvector favours flagging, cleanup, merging and improving to deletion. However, Ivanvector will !vote to delete articles which have no hope of meeting inclusion standards, such as those that clearly fail WP:GNG, WP:CRYSTAL and WP:BIO1E. He also has much-higher-than-average tolerance for stubs, and lower-than-average tolerance for the trend of creating ever more obscure and exclusive lists on Wikipedia, but evaluates each AfD case individually as any good editor should.

In summary, Ivanvector strives toward inclusionism but isn't quite there yet.
