About MrX[edit]

I am a Wikipedia editor whose simple goal is to help expand this global repository of free information. I create and edit articles of which I have some subject matter interest, or that I believe could benefit from my help. My contributions here consist mostly of articles about history, music, technology, notable people, civil rights and nature. I have edited Wikipedia since at least June 23, 2006 as an IP. I registered in 2009, and became active in 2011.

I strive to be an ever-vigilant crusader against vandalism, spam, misinformation and incivility. Toward these ends, I'm continually inspired by many of the excellent contributors here on Wikipedia.

Principles[edit]

I strive to work collaboratively with the other members of the Wikipedia community. If, however, I have stepped on any toes, please accept my apology and please let me know so that I can try to prevent doing so in the future.

I make plenty of mistakes, but I also try to learn from them. Thanks in advance for your patience.

Alternate accounts[edit]

I have an alternate account MrExternal (talk · contribs) for two purposes:

  1. Editing on non-secure networks.
  2. Since I have made Javascript and CSS changes to my interface, I wanted a baseline reference for the default look and feel for autoconfirmed users.

Barnstars[edit]

The Citation Barnstar - I would like to thank you for your excellent editing. Keeping articles adequately referenced can be quite tiresome, so I admire your patience and dedication. Great work, MrX. - Regards, George Custer's Sabre - 20:49, 25 July 2012 (UTC) Civility Award - Just wanted to let you know that I appreciate your civility and willingness to listen to reason.  Today you showed us all how it's supposed to work. - Belchfire - 22:48, 16 August 2012 (UTC) Congratulations, MrX! You're receiving this barnstar because you recently crossed the 1,000 classification threshold using STiki. We thank you both for your contributions to Wikipedia at-large and your use of the tool. We hope you continue your ascent up the leaderboard and stay in touch at the talk page. Thank you and keep up the good work! - West.andrew.g - 19:24, 24 October 2012 (UTC) Thanks for all your constructive edits! - Pass a Method - 10:06, 4 December 2012 (UTC) For continually reverting stupidity and supporting intelligence on Wikipedia. You know what you are doing! - Binksternet - 03:19, 15 December 2012 (UTC) I am not qualified to give you this but I extend it to you anyway as sincere thanks.  It is editors like you that restore my faith in Wikipedia.  I don't know if what you proposed will make it into the language but you worked very hard a very big good faith effort to reach compromise.  Thank you! - Justanonymous - 04:35, 22 December 2012 (UTC) I absolutely love your photographs!  Thank you for uploading them to Wikipedia! - Michael Barera - 02:21, 1 January 2013 (UTC) For losing to me at tagging for deletion but CSD tagging correctly! - Cobalion254 - 16:16, 4 February 2013 (UTC) Well deserved in the first place. - Little_green_rosetta - 15:21, 30 March 2013 (UTC) I've been meaning to give you one of these for some time now. I'm consistently impressed with the way you manage to stay civil, even during the most heated disputes. I know you already have one, but this civility barnstar is well deserved. Kudos to you for taking the high road. - Adjwilley - 04:25, 4 April 2013 (UTC) Every time I turn around on New Page Patrol, you've beat me to doing whatever it is I'm looking at. Damn, you're good - keep it up! - Tikuko - 13:34, 5 May 2013 (UTC) For helping stop a likely sock puppet. - Way2veers - 21:52, 2 June 2013 (UTC) For your comment in the Kiefer Wolfowitz blocking discussion; it drills down to the heart of the matter - that editors need to be evaluated not only in terms of what they contribute, but what they stop others from contributing. - Ironholds - 03:25, 4 June 2013 (UTC) I, SarahStierch, hereby award you, MrX, the World Digital Library Barnstar for your fabulous contributions to the World Digital Library-Wikimedia Partnership. I do hope you will continue to contribute, and thank you for all you do to expand on Wikimedia's mission of sharing free knowledge! - SarahStierch - 16:16 pm, 30 June 2013 (UTC) I see you all over the place. - User:Pass a Method - 15:13, 4 December 2013 (UTC) I think anyone who goes to the length of replying to a post the size of this in the hope of improving an article deserves recognition for their extraordinary effort. Thanks - Jenova20 - 09:18, 17 December 2013 (UTC) Pardon the pun but this is for your all-round Xtraordinary effort. - Green Giant - 09:03, 8 January 2014 (UTC) Thank you pointed out. Please excuse slow reply. - もきゅもきゅー - 21:39, 12 January 2014 (UTC) I was always hoping to give you this, waited until I would complete a year editing. I just watched this whole mess now and I'm happy that majority of the community supported  you. Please do not leave us MrX, the more veteran good-hearted editors like you leave, the more toxic this place gets...imagine how empty our morale would be after you go. Maybe you do need a break, but please come back soon with a fresh start! - Ugog Nizdast - 11:09, 22 January 2014 (UTC) Breaks are good, but Wikipedia needs you. - Dougweller - 13:30, 22 January 2014 (UTC) For your enduring brilliance and contribution on Wikipedia - Teammm - 17:14, 22 January 2014 (UTC) Hello Sir, Thank you for your help! I am new to Wikipedia and accidentally posted something while I was drafting it. Have a great weekend! - Franzthemogul89 - 00:48, 11 May 2014 (UTC) Mr. X, thank you so much for your ongoing help in keeping unsourced POV content out of Good Luck Flag! I just wanted you to know how much your wisdom, quick responses, and persistence are appreciated. - Ailemadrah - 15:52, 9 July 2014 (UTC)
