If you're here because I deleted an article you think should be undeleted, please read this first and remember--Most of the time, I didn't write the text that appears in the deletion summary.
N.B. I don't respond well to either fawning or abuse. Talk to me like a peer, assume good faith, and you'll find I reciprocate in my helpfulness.
Functionary Assistance My ability to help as a checkuser or oversighter in individual matters is currently limited by my non-Wikipedia obligations. For non-trivial assistance, especially that which requires extensive consideration of private correspondence, you will likely get a faster response by asking another functionary.

Important Notice: Your 2013 Arbitration Committee Election vote
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
GAN December 2013 Backlog Drive
GAN Backlog Drive will begin in less than 4 days!
In past Backlog Drives, the goal was to reduce the backlog of Good article nominations. In the upcoming drive, another goal will be added - raising as much money as we can for the Wikimedia Foundation. How will this work? Well, its pretty simple. Any user interested in donating can submit a pledge at the Backlog Drive page (linked above). The pledge should mention the amount of money the user is willing to donate per review. For example, if a user pledges 5 cents per review and 100 nominations are reviewed, the total donation amount is $5.00.
At the time this message was sent out, two users have submitted pledges for a total of 8 cents per review. All pledges, no matter how much money, are greatly appreciated. Also, in no way is this saying you must make a pledge.
Mateo Roskam - restore?
I see that you deleted, quite rightly and deservedly, the article for Mateo Roskam, a Croatian football (soccer) player, in 2009. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mateo_Roskam
He has, however, become eligible for inclusion in 2013, playing for a club in a fully professional league (Slaven Belupo in the Croatian Prva HNL) -> http://www.transfermarkt.com/en/mateo-roskam/leistungsdaten/spieler_46790.html (for example), and I thought it would be cool if the article was restored - I'd update it immediately with relevant data.
Thank you for your help!
- Mateo Roskam has been restored. Please improve it with the new information. Cheers, Jclemens (talk) 22:03, 28 November 2013 (UTC)
Discussion on an old AfD
- Actually, it doesn't--Flatscan just wants to believe it does. Flatscan has a habit of 1) continuing closed discussions, 2) at a glacial (one reply per week or so) page, and 3) assuming that when people get tired of talking to him, that that constitutes proof that he is correct. I'd encourage you to just ignore his post entirely as if it were a summary judgement issue: even if his assertions were true, there's no outcome that would be changed by accepting them. Thus, discussing the merits of his arguments is entirely elective, and something I do not plan to engage in. Cheers, Jclemens (talk) 09:31, 30 November 2013 (UTC)
I think the edit history  may be mentioned without further comment? I can not raise anything specific even at BLP/N as I understand it, hence and only am noting the aggregate contribution history. Cheers. Collect (talk) 20:12, 1 December 2013 (UTC)
