Stuff about me[edit]

I'm a sysadmin and live in Knoxville, Tennessee. After a long period of lurking and anonymously editing, I became a registered user on January 3, 2005.

Wikiphilosophy and Wikinterests[edit]

As indicated by the lovely Wikifeelings userboxes over to the right, I'm inclined to inclusionism and eventualism. That doesn't mean I'm never in favor of deletion, or that I don't think fixing badly-written articles quickly is important... in fact, I spend a lot of my time watching recent changes for vandalism, tagging new pages for speedy deletion if they meet WP:CSD, and making small edits to improve the grammar, spelling, and style of pages. I try hard to have fun and avoid biting the newbies in the process -- if you catch me nibbling on one, please smack me with a trout on my talk page. I check AfD regularly, and try to stand up for articles that are in danger of deletion when I think the subject is notable, even if the current article needs a lot of work -- I'd much rather see a decent stub or appropriate redirect than no article at all if a topic is in any way possibly encyclopedic. My main editing interest is really anything that needs a lot of work, but I'm slightly more likely to do major work on pages in the areas indicated by the Interests stack of userboxes. I only put one TV box in there for now -- I could make a whole page of them, but I'll resist.
