Welcome to Wikipedia. This is a door. Please leave your ego outside.
I like to keep conversations in one place. Therefore, if you leave a message here, I will reply here so add this page to your watchlist. If I leave a message on your talk page or an article's talk page, I'll watch that and reply there.
Be patient if you're awaiting a reply from me – I'm normally online daily but Real Life sometimes prevents this.
This page is regularly archived; discussions here should be linked with a diff. Check my archives for messages over ten days old. If you're looking for something posted before November 2011, check the page history.
I always decline direct copy-edit requests. That's what the Guild of Copy Editors is for – you might be (un)lucky enough to find me working there.
Barnstars and Wikilove messages are fun, and I do appreciate the sentiment, but a brief 'thanks' is fine. ;-)
