|This user is currently on a wikibreak. Please note I am currently only intermittently active and am not available to join discussions, projects or significant article improvements. (September 2011)|
Welcome to my user page. This page is intended to give you a quick idea of my interests, experience, and current projects. It's also where I keep some of the nice things that people have unwisely said about me. To leave me a message, or start a discussion, please head on over to my talk page.
Right now I'm mostly working on improving articles, reviewing Good Article nominations, and arguing at Articles for Deletion.
Check out my activity summary!
The largest five sections are:
- Red (mainspace), representing the articles I've created and expanded;
- Blue (Wikipedia), mostly comprised of contributions to Articles for Deletion debates;
- Pink (User talk), mostly vandalism warnings and advice for new users;
- Green (Article talk), almost entirely project tagging and article assessment, and
- Gray (Template talk), being largely reviews and nominations at Did You Know?
Associations and positions
Despite working on a number of articles about Roman Catholic clergy and conservative politicians, I am neither religious nor right-wing. I just find it's easier working on articles that I have no personal involvement in, plus I learn more.

|The Article Rescue Barnstar|
|Well done on your sterling work in rescuing the Paul Randall Harrington from deletion. I'd close the debate if I was allowed, but only a matter of time before someone else does. Awesome work. Dylanfromthenorth (talk) 20:47, 11 February 2010 (UTC)|
|The Article Rescue Barnstar|
|Thank you for your outstanding (and successful!) efforts rescuing The Officer's Guide to Police Pistolcraft from deletion. Your time and work are both greatly appreciated and the whole process has made me realize just what an interesting project Wikipedia is! If you are interested (and only if it doesn't violate any rules) the author has authorized me to offer to send you a copy of the book so you can learn more about the subject matter. Nothing unethical, he has complimentary copies set aside for review purposes and sends them out with no strings or obligations on a regular basis. Please provide an address via email if you are interested and I will send one out immediately. Again, thank you! H. Taylor TaylorTime (talk) 15:03, 22 February 2010 (UTC)
Note: The offer of a free book above was declined with thanks, 22 Feb 10. - DustFormsWords
