Oliver Pereira is... me. :)
We regret to inform you that Oliver Pereira is still with us. However, he is currently taking an extended break from Wikipedia.
This extended break continues into 2015 and has now been reclassified as an elongated break. This is not to be confused with an elongated beak, such as possessed by Oystercatchers and Avocets.
Slightly less late news
I know, I think I'll make myself a nice sandpit, so I can mess about with pages without ruining their edit histories too much...
As of March 7, 2003, I am now one of those damned sysop people. I'm not quite sure how that happened. I suggested it earlier that day on the mailing list for the English-language Wikipedia, just as something to do, and for some reason Ed Poor took me seriously... ;)
On March 16, 2003 (hey, this is turning into a diary now!), I finally got round to using my sysop powers for eeevil purposes by deleting Hooky / Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy II (another of those Spongebob episode summaries) and Ben Hajioff (deleting redirect which leads out of article space (well, if no-one else is going to...)), the latter being a blatant violation of Wikipedia policy, for which I should be banned immediately!!! You see, I was the one who nominated it for deletion, and people aren't supposed to delete pages they nominate for deletion...
Oliver-For your great work at this site, and your incredible friendship that I have been blessed with, I have the honor of handing you your first barnstar award. Thanks for everything, and God bless you always! "Antonio 100 characters in one Martin"
- Thank you, Antonio. :)
