Creation[edit]

I created, revived or defended, here and on commons, many licensing templates, including {{PD-FLGov}}, used for over 100 commons images and many en images, as well as {{FLGovernment}}, {{PD-CAGov}}, {{PD-MAGov}},{{PD-DCGov}}, {{PD-NJGov}} (which lost a foolish TfD and DR, both railroaded by Carnildo), and {{PD-laws}}. Proud of these 2 widely positively impactful edits I think'll help users a lot - people who couldn't (figure out how to/easily) search archives are able to quickly do so now, on ~50,000 (?+40,000) popular pages, hopefully improving discussion quality!

Articles I created include:

Deletion[edit]

On the deletion side, I RfD'd inappropriate state copyright templates, like PD-MDGov.

Articles I had deleted include:

Worth a Read![edit]

Enforced Consequences[edit]

The solution to vandalism, and misbehavior generally, is "enforced consequences" (or "consequences and enforcement"). On wikipedia, there's lots (and lots, and lots) of enforcement, but there are no real consequences.



Security[edit]

Padlock.svg This page is encrypted. And if you believe that just because that lock and statement appear here, your computer is probably infected and you need reeducation.

(Well, OK, it might be probably is encrypted; you are probably viewing this page over https, because secure Wikipedia access is now available and the default and mandatory and HSTS-preloaded for the most important domains, and thus much more common.


Pledges[edit]

I've taken The Anti-Corruption Pledge of Rootstrikers/Fix Congress First/Lawrence Lessig/Fund for the Republic. Anti-Corruption Pledge.png I've taken The Boulder Pledge.
