Note: I recently was informed that this page looks like crap in Firefox. Not sure why, as it works just fine in Safari, which is what I use. I may try to fix it at some point.

Everything you need to know about me as an admin/bureaucrat, plus everything I need to reference to be an admin/bureaucrat. (purge)

If you're unhappy with some admin-ish thing I've done...[edit]

...I'd recommend you drop me a line on my talk page.

Actually, I'd recommend you take a deep breath, make sure I actually did screw up (entirely possible), then drop me a line.

Please, do not email me about admin stuff; I try to keep everything on-wiki if at all possible. If I've blocked you, there's always {{unblock}}; I also keep all blocked user talk pages on my watchlist, and will check back on them a few hours after I've left my notice.

Also, I am open to administrator recall. To see my criteria for recall, read User:EVula/opining/admin recall.

My admin info![edit]


I was made an administrator on November 7, 2006. My RfA closed with a vote of 62/0/0. Near as I can tell, I'm admin #1,047.

My first RfB was closed as non-consensus on July 1, 2007; the second was also closed as non-consensus on 24 December, 2007. My third RfB passed (122/1/2) on 3 June, 2008.

I was granted Oversight privs after my election on February 16, 2009.

User has requested a username change. --Jakob (talk) aka Jakec 21:08, 4 July 2015 (UTC)
Not really blatent, in my view DES (talk) 02:41, 5 July 2015 (UTC)
Being discussed with the user. The warnign I saw on the talk page was dated 2 july, was there an earlier one? That doesn't leave all that much time for a name change request, IMO. This user has, however, edited promotionally. Any future such edits would be reason enough to block. DES (talk) 02:41, 5 July 2015 (UTC)
Not a blatant violation of the username policy. User has been editing, aparently productivly, with this name since 2013. I don't see any blatent violation nor an disruption here, unless this user is in fact a sock of a banned user, which no one has allged much less shown evidence for. Let this one drop, I suggest. DES (talk) 02:57, 5 July 2015 (UTC)
Being discussed with the user. Warned on talk page. DES (talk) 20:05, 5 July 2015 (UTC)
Only edits are to AfC submission. Please discuss this with the user first and re-report if necessary. Notified of issue on talk page. DES (talk) 20:10, 5 July 2015 (UTC)
Being discussed with the user. Was warned on talk page by an IP editor, otherwise I might well have blocked. Any furthe promotional or dubious edits and i would block. DES (talk) 20:17, 5 July 2015 (UTC)
Wait until the user edits. DES (talk) 20:18, 5 July 2015 (UTC)
Not a blatant violation of the username policy. User was formerly named "Xxx", but was renamed as part of SUL finalization. Gparyani (talk) 18:45, 5 July 2015 (UTC)
