Tooling around some articles. If you need something, the best way to get my attention is to leave me a non-bot message on my talk page. May appear to be inactive without warning.

Free advice[edit]

Today's witticism: TMI. Especially applies to bad writing.

From me[edit]

  • Something all Wikipedian's should remember.
  • Spend more time with your family and/or friends than with Wikipedia.
  • Peace-making is the first step in right-making.
  • Sometimes you're wrong.
  • It can happen to you.
  • Wikipedia is huge.
  • The more time you spend talking, the more likely you've already said something stupid.
  • Don't stand on principle. Be principled, stand on reasons.
  • Policy is a tool, not an end.
  • Keep threaded discussions short and sweet so new readers can keep up without having to emotional energy catching up.
  • Loyalty is the most beguiling of virtues. It leads the evil to kindness, and the kind to meanness.
  • Don't use policy as a weapon.
  • Sometimes the only solution is one that makes no one happy.
  • If you use it like a weapon, consensus will forever be beyond your grasp.
  • If a standard process leads you to the right result but takes a lot of work, follow the process. If process leads you to a result you don't like, follow the process. If process leads you to an absurd result, ignore the process.
  • Learn the difference between absurd and unfortunate.
  • Understand the reasons behind the policy you invoke.
  • Contextualization ruins everything.
  • A fanatic is someone who has forgotten where they are going - but has redoubled his efforts to get there.
  • A partisan is someone who has forgotten that the goal is to win the war, not to beat the enemy.
  • To no editor is any process due, but every editor is due respect.
