I have a secondary account, User:Kinoq, that I used briefly in November 2009 berfore I managed to recover my lost password for this account.

This user hates userboxes (but is willing to make an occasional exception).
This user believes that Pending Changes is a terrible idea imposing unneeded extra workload on regular editors, and intends to boycott the P.C. feature if it is implemented.

For your amazing work getting math biographies sourced during the recent mess - every time I look, there you are, crossing another name off the list. I'd have given you the tireless barnstar, but you already have one of those :) RayTalk 04:32, 24 January 2010 (UTC)

To Nsk92 in recognition of good oversight and advice in the process of bringing an article I created, L. Martin Griffin Jr. to the Main page through my very first Did you know... - your suggestions regarding the hook, etc. were timely, friendly and spot on. My best wishes to you today, and every day!

Other[edit]

In March 2008 I made a proposal[1] to strengthen WMF's privacy policy by including a notification provision for the cases where identifying info of Wikipedia users is sought by third-party subpoenas. The proposal was later adopted by the WMF Board of Trustees, Wikipedia:Village pump (policy)/Archive 46#Update in privacy policy, and is now a part of the WMF privacy policy[2][3].
