Although I grew up in Cornwall, I currently live in Coventry, England, and work nearby as an archivist.

My interests include architecture, the armed forces and military history, fortifications, church history and architecture, law enforcement (particularly its history), cinema and theatre, the British honours system, the 1920s, roleplaying games and fantasy literature.

I've been an administrator since 4 November 2005.

Notability policies[edit]

I have been accused at various times of being both an inclusionist and a deletionist. For the record, I am neither. I probably tend more towards inclusionism than deletionism, but I do not believe that Wikipedia should feature articles about completely non-notable people and organisations. People who are friends or relatives of somebody notable are not intrinsically notable themselves. People who were involved in a notable event are not intrinsically notable (although they may warrant a redirect to the article about the event). People who are related to an editor are certainly not intrinsically notable. Neither are local clubs, societies and organisations or companies that do not have at least a national reputation (note that secondary schools are NOT local organisations!). But, conversely, just because something or someone is not intrisically notable doesn't mean they're not capable of being notable at all. Too many editors slap prod or afd notices on whole categories of articles without bothering to examine their individual merits, and that's just as bad as cluttering up Wikipedia with articles about utterly non-notable subjects.

Recognition[edit]

A Barnstar!
Administrator

Hey there. I'm pleased to let you know that, consensus being reached, you are now an administrator! You've volunteered to do housekeeping duties that normal users sadly cannot participate in. Sysops can't do a lot of stuff: They can't delete pages just like that (except patent nonsense like "aojt9085yu8;3ou"), and they can't protect pages in an edit war they are involved in. But they can delete random junk, ban anonymous vandals, delete pages listed on Votes for deletion (provided there's a consensus) for more than one week, protect pages when asked to, and keep the few protected pages that exist on Wikipedia up to date. Almost anything you can do can be undone, but please take a look at The Administrators' how-to guide and the Administrators' reading list before you get started (although you should have read that during your candidacy ;). Take a look before experimenting with your powers. Also, please add Administrators' noticeboard to your watchlist, as there are always discussions/requests for admins there. If you have any questions drop me a message at My talk page. Have fun! =Nichalp «Talk»= Please also add your name to WP:LA =Nichalp «Talk»= 03:33, 4 November 2005 (UTC)
A Barnstar!
The Original Barnstar

For dedication to your areas of expertise, your persistence in the face of vandalism and your NPOV and keeping your cool when others launch attacks on you. I think it's a long time coming. Ben W Bell talk 08:23, 31 May 2006 (UTC)
