About me

Hello everyone, I'm Amanda, an Arbitrator on the English Wikipedia. I first signed up for Wikipedia a long time ago, but became involved late 2009. I am more of an administrative (not necessarily using the tools) backend contributor, and I help where my skills lay best. I am normally active (outside of ArbCom) CheckUser and my primary work is with SPI and related business, OTRS, and general admin work. As an OTRS Member, and I am willing to assist with any issues you have or tickets you need help with.

  • I have access to the following interfaces (or tools) if you ever need assistance:
    • Checkuser interface
    • OTRS: info-en (full), permissions, photosubmission, oversight-en
    • ACC Developer
    • UTRS Developer

Disclosures

Considering candidates for the 2015 Arbitration Committee Election have been asked to identify what makes them unique and diverse, I thought it was only fair I do the same.

  • Gender: Female
  • Sexual orientation: Lesbian
  • Race and/or ethnicity: White
  • Where you live: North Bay, ON, Canada
  • Whether you have any condition considered a disability[1]: BPD (which includes Depression and Anxiety)
  • What social class you belong to: Working class

I would like to say that none of this so far has impeded my ability to be a contributor or an Arbitrator. -- Amanda (aka DQ) 00:17, 19 November 2015 (UTC)

  1. ^ (even if you're not so disabled you're unable to work) including deafness, physical disabilities, developmental disabilities and mental illnesses

Funnies

So After all this time, I think it's time I put some up.

  • So true...

Bill, you were editing through a proxy which has now been blocked. The block wasn't targeted at you. I see you've now resolved the issue though, so that's good. Anyway, I can see the alternative account and there doesn't look to be anything wrong with it. This is quite possibly the first time I've ran a check, found another account, and been able to "Everything looks fine". What a moment! I should take a photograph of this or something. --(ʞɿɐʇ) ɐuɐʞsǝp 15:12, 11 May 2011 (UTC)

  • Never seen it put that way...

"But, officer, I didn't notice I was speeding". That and $2.50 will get you a cup of coffee with the judge at traffic court. Talk page access will still be revoked ... if you're that reckless in your editing, we're doing you a favor. Daniel Case (talk) 01:45, 29 June 2011 (UTC)

Slakr's Prox-imity Award

For your work in helping to detect and block open proxies of all shapes and sizes, I hereby award you a magical proximity switch. I hear it allows one to magically close an open proximity circuit, so it surely must close open proxies in close proximity...or something like that. :P

Keep up the great work. =) Cheers, --slakrtalk / 00:37, 24 August 2011 (UTC)

Sue's barnstar.png The Executive Director's Barnstar
Congratulations, DeltaQuad: you're the sixth recipient of the Executive Director's barnstar, which I'm awarding occasionally to editors who're making a significant contribution to the projects. You've been nominated by User:Philippe (WMF) for all your work handling e-mails from people who are trying to get unblocked. Philippe says you process an enormous amount of those requests, you never lose your temper, and you're really effective at getting people's problems resolved. Thank you, and congratulations! If you want, you (or anyone) can nominate other people for this award, by putting a message on my talk page. Sue Gardner (talk) 18:46, 18 September 2011 (UTC)

For responding to at least 15 requests on unblock-en-l during the past week - despite the fact you're supposed to be on wikibreak :-P - I award you, as promised, an Admin's Barnstar! Thanks for the help. Hersfold (t/a/c) 17:50, 13 November 2011 (UTC)

Keeping people safe from their repressive governments deserves something. Repressive government is perhaps a tautology; yet even those of us with extreme libertarian or anarchist views understand there is a spectrum, and however you define it the Syrian government is at one end of it - the wrong end. Thanks for dealing with this user appropriately and rapidly. Egg Centric 00:03, 16 May 2012 (UTC)
