I try to help, but I make mistakes[edit]

I patrol the recent changes for vandalism, in all its forms, to try to help keep Wikipedia the best that it can be, but like many I make mistakes.

  • If you think I have made a mistake, please let me know on my talk page
  • Just because I revert an edit does not mean I sanction the existing contents
  • Just because I revert an edit does not mean I disagree with the motive behind the original edit (unless pure vandalism; hatred; trolling; - which I all detest)
  • If I revert it's only because I believe the edit was Vandalism or not valid to the Policies and guidelines of Wikipedia including being a Neutral point of view and Verifiable.


I also try to help resolve issues with Articles with missing files by one of the following in this order of preference:

  • Find image and fix link (i.e. revert vandalism, misguided file name 'correcting')
  • Find similar/suitable image on wikipedia/commons and link
  • If the article/image is of non-trivial importance - i.e. not just a logo, very minor subject, etc. then:
    • Find new 'Free' image on another site, upload and link
    • Create new image/artwork/diagram, upload and link
  • Lastly, remove reference if none of the above apply and article will be fine without
  • Wiki File Helper Look up an image name on en.wikipedia.org and commons to see file history
  • Worked on this from Sep '13 to Dec '13 to clear backlog from ~11500 articles to 8


Things I can never remember and want to stop hunting for...[edit]

  • Template Parser Functions (conditional elements etc) [1]


Thoughts and Things[edit]

  • Things that should be often aren't
  • I'm a Kylie fan, and not someone called Kylie with a high regard for myself ;)
    • Kylie+Fantastic = KylieTastic
  • One too many pints of Guinness means its time to stop editing...
  • When it gets to around midnight in the UK Wikipedia slows down and makes battling the vandals harder..... Time for bed said Zebedee
