My name's Sam and I'm currently an astrophysics student in the UK. My main focus is video game articles and scientist biographies but I edit anything that takes my interest. I also occasionally upload images to Commons. When not editing articles I can be found reviewing requested accounts or helping at #wikipedia-en-help connect, the Help Desk, and the Teahouse. As an admin I tend to work at Articles for Deletion, Speedy Deletion, Page Protection and Usernames for Administrators attention.
If you think I've done something stupid or want to ask me a question please feel free to post on my talk page. If you think there is an obvious reason to revert an admin action I've taken then go ahead - don't feel required to notify me first, just let me know you've done so.
I have access to the University of Liverpool's library and other libraries around the Liverpool area, feel free to ask if you'd like me to find something for you.
I have three alternative accounts; User:Samwalton9TWA and User:Samwalton9Testing which I use for testing purposes (originally testing The Wikipedia Adventure, more recently for viewing/adding content as a new editor), and a Doppelgänger account User:Sam Walton.
