Greetings! My name is Sionk and I've been active on Wikipedia since 2007. I have two university degrees and a wide range of interests, so hopefully my contributions will be useful. Of course, I welcome any constructive comments, criticism or advice (see my 'Talk' page).
Wikipedia is a fabulous not-for-profit resource with many positive aspects, but oeverall I tend to err towards being a 'deletionist' because of the overwhelming amounts of non-notable fancruft and 'conflict of interest' editing that goes on here. I'll try and give people the benefit of the doubt in most situations - if their edits are balanced and adequately sourced I don't make an issue of it.
Be reassured, I try to add useful information too (while deleting the bad). I've written many articles myself and I've been an active reviewer at Articles for Creation. And I know Wikipedia can be a bewildering place for newcomers so I'll try my utmost to be patient and helpful if anyone has questions.
Congratulations, Sionk! You're receiving The AFC and Teamwork Barnstars because you reviewed 208 articles during the recent AFC Backlog elimination drive! Thank you for you contributions to Wikipedia at-large and helping to keep the backlog down. We hope you continue reviewing submissions and stay in touch at the talk page. Thank you and keep up the good work! Mdann52 (talk) 17:24, 15 August 2013 (UTC)
