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.

Comment: I'm not certain they are promoting an organization. Using Google I can find a website called "tweedyclothing", but nothing with the exact phrase used here. 331dot (talk) 12:28, 21 June 2018 (UTC)
It seems their business name may be Harris Tweed as shown in the image on their userpage. Or it could be just an image posted for whatever reason, but the image mentions tweed and appears to be a photograph of a tag attached to clothing. -- Longhair\talk 12:50, 21 June 2018 (UTC)
Agree on this. I looked into it earlier and saw we do not have enough information to warrant a block. Wait and see their edits. -- Alexf(talk) 13:00, 21 June 2018 (UTC)
