My Wikipedia Philosophy
  • I try to be:
    • Polite, patient and respectful
    • Solicit feedback and ask questions.
    • Keep the discussion focused on a small set of related matters and look for compromise and consensus.
    • Focus on the subject rather than the personalities or actions of the involved editors.
    • Give other editors the benefit of the doubt about their intentions
    • Show appreciation and say thank you
  • When responding to unhappy or angry editors:
    • I try to look at it as an opportunity to develop my skill for responding kindly even in heated situations. In my experience a compassionate response will often change the tone of the other editor.
    • I try to remember that complaints are not always personal, and that the editor's anger can be an expression of his/her cumulative frustrations from a variety of experiences on Wikipedia (or in real life). Demonstrating understanding and empathy will sometimes calm the situation and allow for progress.
    • I try to look for common ground and find it useful in fostering compromise or solutions for an issue.
    • I try to remind myself that many times editors are just looking for someone who will: listen to what they have to say, respect their point of view, and try to help them.
    • I try to remember that an interaction with an unhappy editor has the potential to begin their transformation to an inspired Wikipedian.
    • I try to remind myself that I'm not responsible for every problem on Wikipedia and that I am myself a 'work in progress'.
  • I'm not perfect. If I make a mistake I try to take responsibility for it and do whatever I can to fix it as soon as possible.

Hi Keithbob! I would like to thank you for your years of hard work and valuable contributions which you have done for Wikipedia :) I can truly understand how difficult it would have been for you to recover from an unfortunately failed RfA. Although I didn't take part in it, I have full faith in you and wish you best of luck for the times ahead, and I hope that you'll surely succeed next time. Best Regards! -TheGeneralUser (talk) 22:28, 8 March 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for your efforts regarding my recent dispute resolution request. You are the first person to have actually read and understood my concerns, after my having already posted it twice on the admin page, it being twice closed there, and my being redirected to your venue. While I don't believe there was any true resolution obtained in or out of the venue, I appreciate your consideration. Daniellagreen (talk) (cont) 14:29, 29 June 2014 (UTC)

Saint Barnstar Hires.svg
The Wiki-saint Barnstar

You've been given a halo, because you're a saint for your work with the Bob's Burgers DRN case. Perhaps I'm just becoming a curmudgeon, and may need a Wikibreak, but I would have been sorely tempted to tell all those people to go eat $#@$&! and die after about the second day of negotiations while you actually continued to work with them to a consensus.
Thou art hereby Wiki-canonized to henceforth be Saint Keithbob.
