Hello! I'm known as Elockid and welcome to my Userpage. The name "Elockid" is a unique name I use only here on the English Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects. If you encounter my name or various forms of it at any other place, please note that I have absolutely no relation to them. In the event I decide to use the name "Elockid" outside of Wikipedia/other Wikimedia projects, I will make a public link here on my Userpage. Any alternate accounts of mine are labeled and/or created by my main account.

A large amount of my time here involves undoing vandalism, checking for inaccuracies and removing unsourced information. I do occasionally contribute to articles relating to demography, economics and geography. Much of the information I add is either updating statistics, adding new ones, or replacing statistics using unreliable sources with more reliable ones. On occasion I will add information that would classified as trivia.

I'm an adminstrator and my main administrative work focuses on anti-abuse. I primarily deal with vandalism, sockpuppetry, long-term abuse, and spam. I mostly work behind the scenes but I do handle requests at Administrator intervention against vandalism, Requests for page protection, Sockpuppet invesitgations. I also handle unblock requests and IP block exemption requests. I am Functionary with CheckUser and Oversight access to further assist me in my administrative work. So if you need assistance in any of these areas, please feel free to leave a message.

If you want to know more about me, please feel free to check out the Userboxes on your right.

For all of your great work here. Materialscientist handles 95% of my AIV reports, but I often see you around at AIV, dealing with vandals and spammers. Also, you blocked the imitation account of me a few months ago and I just wanted to thank you for that. See you around! Electriccatfish2 (talk) 21:34, 6 July 2012 (UTC)

I wanted to recognize you for the work done fighting the Bold text vandalism by the numerous IP's I've seen on AIV. Just for fun, having checked each IP with WHOIS, nearly every one reported with that M.O had one thing in common: They were all registered to Verizon Wireless. Heh, what a waste of data. Anyway, thank you for your vigilance! Signalizing (talk) 19:33, 12 July 2013 (UTC)

The few random ducks I've encountered always ended up getting hunted by you. I also see that you have been very much active in combating long-term vandalism, sockpuppetry etc. I salute you! Ugog Nizdast (talk) 10:21, 1 May 2014 (UTC)
Admin Barnstar.png The Admin's Barnstar
Yours is a name I've missed seeing on my watchlist, so I was glad when I went to block a vandal at AIV and found that you'd beaten me to it—the first time I've seen your name for a long time. I always thought of you as one of the few admins who were truly willing to get their hands dirty and deal with worst abuse the project suffers, so I'm glad to be seeing you around again. :) HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 23:42, 4 February 2015 (UTC)
