Who are you?[edit]

I'm just this guy, you know? You can call me Jethro.

Why is your username I JethroBT?[edit]

It was a nickname given to me by some friends of mine who liked this rock band with a flautist. Jethrobot was inspired by the same group of friends after watching I, Robot (I haven't seen it). In the weird way that nicknames tend to stick, it did. And so it was I, Jethrobot. I later changed the -bot to -BT because "bot" might cause folks to think I'm not a real boy. The BT doesn't stand for anything in particular.

Why Wikipedia? & editing history[edit]

I joined Wikipedia on Sunday, August 13th in 2006, making some edits to Dragon Quest Yangus and Game Boy, but I wasn't really active until 2011. I was curious about deletion then; I knew it was easy to add stuff to articles, but didn't know much about how content was removed. So, I started spending my time watching and participating in deletion discussions and letting this sink in. It's been a fun ride since learning how this fantastic project gets built. It's not magic, but it sure feels that way sometimes.

What I do[edit]

I do some content work and these activities:

I also have a major role in these initiatives:

It's a good life.

I like these things that Wikipedians have said (at least in part)[edit]

  • [1] - On edit counts and RfAs, from Coffee (talk · contribs)
  • [2] Some words from Drmies (talk · contribs) on a lot of stuff, like curbing your enthusiasm, though I don't care so much for the old vs. young stuff.
  • [3] A new editor has this to say after being feeling pushed away by warnings and incorrect reverts identified as vandalism to her contributions. We all need to be careful of being BITEy.
  • [4] Iryna Harpy (talk · contribs) comments on how in their (and definitely my) childhood, Wikipedia is the blow-your-mind kind of futuristic stuff we dreamed about: "the stuff of science fiction", she says. I definitely agree.
  • [5] [6] This exchange between Jimbo Wales and Robert McClenon about acknowledging that our community tolerates incivility, and considerations on what we might do about it.
