Projects and wikibeliefs
Thanks for checking out my user page. But just to let you know I'm not editing much 'round here, so I may not be responsive to messages left on my talk page. I haven't left in a huff over any conflict, but have been busy with other aspects of life. I can still be reached by e-mail if I'm needed, but I don't have as much time to edit.
Click here if you wish to leave me a comment, or just check out what other people have said. I am also available by e-mail. If you are a vandal and or would like to vandalize something, please check out User:Reflex Reaction/Vandalism where I agree not to make any changes!!
If need help that requires and admin's attention, please feel free to ask. My sysops actions to date: blocks, protection, and deletes. If I am not available, see either Wikipedia:Requests for administrator attention or Wikipedia:List of administrators.
I joined wikipedia in February 2005 (though I have some earlier edits) and became an administrator on October 28, 2005. After some inactivity, I decided to turn in my administrator privileges. I am heavily involved with the Missing article project, creating and continuing to work on a number of lists. You may also see me at articles for deletion, disambig repair, merging articles, fixing double redirects or welcoming new users. I also revert vandalism wherever I can find it. I consider myself a wikignome and have over 12,000 edits. Take this number with salt though, I try very hard to use the preview button and write edit summaries, so this number may be lower than my actual "contribution". I scored a 134 on the Wikipediholic test.

I am an inclusionist and an eventualist, (see Wikipedia philosophies for some background). Despite this, I follow the notability guidelines for Wikipedia:Importance for WP:AFD. I stand strong against censorship and ignorance. I believe that the majority of users are actually trying to help wikipedia, though there is a number of malicious or bored people enjoy ruining hard work of others. I also think that anonymous users provide minimal, but still very useful contributions.
I prefer to remain relatively anonymous on wikipedia, though I think some background is helpful to know about my strengths, weaknesses and biases.
To Do List
Most of what I would like to do is create lists associated with WP:MEA, though recently I've been real busy renaming company according to two naming conventions that I helped developed and pruning lists. I've even gotten away from doing admin tasks and started actually creating articles.
High priority to-do list
- Rename companies at User:Reflex Reaction/Company rename according to Wikipedia:Naming conventions (companies)
- Add search functions to lists at WP:MEA see Template:SearchCath for Catholic, add search for TV stations - http://www.fcc.gov/fcc-bin/tvq?call=????
