.- Salvidrim is my Internet-wide username, sometimes abbreviated as "Salv" for convenience's sake. I reserve the right to alter your comments if you misspell my username!
.- My real name is Benoit Landry, I'm a male French Canadian by birth, thus I am fully bilingual; je parle français!
.- I have an always-open page dedicated to receiving comments about my general conduct as an admin.
.- I'm always ready to be proven wrong, so if I do or say something stupid, {{trout}} me freely!
.- I'm a gamer at heart, so you'll often find me hanging around WikiProject:VG.
.- I'm a gnome, through and through, and couldn't prose my way out of a wet paper bag.
.- I enjoy participating in or closing consensus-seeking activities like RMs, XfDs, RfCs and so on.
.- I will alter your talk page comments if their format is an obstacle to comprehension. I will not change their content (other than as described on the first bullet point), but will not hesitate to fix links, templates, headers or indentation... especially indentation.
.- The WikiPhilosophies I identify with moderately are eventualism and rehabilism. I'm a softie for second chances.
.- I vigorously defend and "enable" the infamous hated-but-productive editors. I'm willing to go the extra mile and try my best to channel their energy and contibutions towards their area of expertise, and minimize or disregard the inevitable conflicts around them; because I value their contributions more than I value "a good editing atmosphere". But that sentiment is often at odds with the general population and that disappoints me.
.- I use a handful of user scripts, adding more whenever I find them.
.- I create a bunch of redirects to existing articles whenever I notice they might help.
.- If I see an article-less topic which passes any notability guideline, I'll stub it for others to improve.
.- Sometimes I grow bored enough to go through database reports and cleanup messes.
.- I am not in favor of allowing unregistered contributors to edit but I understand the current consensus.
.- I don't have as much free time as I wish I did, but I do what I can, when I can. Hours of hyperactivity follow days of passive watching.

One of the most important things to remember is this: When dealing with a "bad doer", be it a sockpuppet, vandal or edit warrior, you have to remain calm. Cool. Collected. If you ramp up the drama, you make it more likely that they will retaliate even more, so now you have more vandalism, more socks, more problems. Failure to handle a situation in a calm manner leads to more problems, more drama.
