Yeah, this picture is like 10 years old.

Heyo. I’m Nick, from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA. I had a baby girl about a year ago five years ago (wow, has it been that long?), which had curtailed my on-wiki time severely. This month, though, my wife will be away from home for her work, which should keep me around some more.

I used to spend a lot of time on-wiki removing fair-use galleries from articles, but it seems that the crusade has finally been won, for the most part. Now I Huggle in my copious free time, and doing a lot of lurking at WP:ANI, WP:RFA, and WP:MFD, where I occasionally chime in. I also enjoy making {{editprotected}} requests on the upcoming blurb for Today’s featured article; it has all of the cheap thrills of seeing your work on the main page, but with none of the grueling work of actually writing an FA.

Let me know if I can help you with anything, and I'll do my best, or point you in the direction to someone who can.

Please sign your comments using four tildes (~~~~). Place comments that start a new topic at the bottom of the page by starting a new thread, using a descriptive header. Please link usernames and page tiles. I will normally answer on this page, and ping you on your talk page as well.

For the record, I'm not a real doctor, but I am a real Nick.

Commendation for bold initiative and hard work which you put into Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/A Scooter for Yaksmas.  - Gavin Collins - 16 January 2008 For reverting the page blanking and vandalism placed on my talk page. Thank you very much! - MelicansMatkin - 28 January 2008 Wish I had your communication skills, you seem to be heading for a much better outcome of the Kafziel case. I do hope saner heads prevails but felt your level headed comments were due some recognition. - WeeCurryMonster - 24 January 2014

Your notification to me[edit]

You alleged that I made an edit to a page concerning some type of molecule...

This concerns me, not because I am ashamed/guilty of any malicious act, but because I never made any such edit. Perhaps the notification of the edit was sent to the wrong I.P.; other possiblities, such as someone else operating under my I.P., are the concern I feel.

I wanted to respond to let you know that I wouldn't make any sort of joking-edit (i.e. the edit that was allegedly made on the page.. very silly), and that other nonproductive edits from this I.P. should be approached cautiously (I'm not sure what that means in substantiation).

Goodness, that notification was left way back in October 2009. IP addresses can change fairly often, so I imagine that message was not actually intended for you, but rather someone else who was using that address back then. If you enjoy editing Wikipedia and would like you avoid this issue in the future, you might consider registering an account; of course, it's not required, and IP contributions are always welcome.

Important Notice: Your 2013 Arbitration Committee Election vote[edit]

Greetings. Because you have already cast a vote for the 2013 Arbitration Committee Elections, I regret to inform you that due to a misconfiguration of the SecurePoll we've been forced to strike all votes and reset voting. This notice is to inform you that you will need to vote again if you want to be counted in the poll. The new poll is located at this link. You do not have to perform any additional actions other than voting again. If you have any questions, please direct them at the election commissioners. --For the Election Commissioners, v/r, TParis

A barnstar for you[edit]

I'm humbled. Like two ships in the night; I was in the middle of a post on your talk page. Thanks, HiDrNick! 14:45, 24 January 2014 (UTC)

I made no error[edit]

I saw that the page had an error. Somebody must have let their child get on the computer while the page was open. It had the error that the cats "emerged" 25 million years ago. Now I am not going to lie to you, I have not been on too many walks in my lifetime, but not a single one of the few walks I have been on included a new species flying out from a rock or dirt mound. What luck the person that witnessed such a thing as a whole species of cat "appearing" must have had.
