Hello! My Wikipedia username is J947 and I mainly edit articles relating to New Zealand politics, but I also edit anything relating to my home country of New Zealand and !vote on requests for adminship. I also fight against vandalism sometimes, as well as reviewing drafts, saving articles, identifying problematic new articles, providing opinions on adminship, and trying to get the most vital 10,000 articles. I have one alternate account, J947 Public. If you want to send me something, go to my talk page and send me a message there.

Here are some useful links:

DYK for Town of Dunedin by-election, 1859[edit]

Updated DYK query.svgOn 31 January 2017, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Town of Dunedin by-election, 1859, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that the 1859 by-election in Dunedin, New Zealand, was won by James Macandrew, who had precipitated it with his resignation from office? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Town of Dunedin by-election, 1859. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Town of Dunedin by-election, 1859), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.

DYK for William John Dyer[edit]

Updated DYK query.svgOn 21 February 2017, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article William John Dyer, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that despite originally contesting the 1859 Town of Dunedin by-election, William John Dyer did not participate in the poll called afterwards? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/William John Dyer. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, William John Dyer), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000.
