Admin[edit]

I am a Wikipedia:administrator since July 5, 2004. I first contributed to Wikipedia in April of 2001 (oldest edits lost in early software upgrades). My first edit with my username appears to be on April 26. I have been active on a number of online projects - active and passive (SETI@Home, Distributed Proofreaders, Mars crater labeling, Stardust@Home, Folding@Home on the Wikipedia team: Team page, etc.)

Stale: This account has not been used in the last 2–3 weeks. Mz7 (talk) 20:37, 18 October 2019 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment.png Note: @Mz7: Impersonation accounts are generally exempt from the staleness provision due to the potential harm to the reputation of real people. However, I also note Wikipedia does not have an article on a person by this name so I wouldn't block for that reason. Beeblebrox (talk) 22:29, 18 October 2019 (UTC)
@Beeblebrox: Roger that—as a general principle of avoiding harm to living persons, that makes sense to me, and I will be sure to change my approach to future famous-name username situations. Mz7 (talk) 22:37, 18 October 2019 (UTC)

Canada Computers[edit]

Temporary pending changes: Persistent vandalism – Canada Computers has been the target of two different users from opposite sides of the country (British Columbia and Ontario) in as many days in terms of vandalism. The Ontario user uses Bell Internet and has been warned by an administrator/CheckUser against logging out while editing; the B.C. user uses Telus Internet. The editing appears to be disruptive and persistent, so am requesting the lowest level of protection, pending changes, for 1-2 weeks. Thanks. Doug Mehus (talk) 17:36, 18 October 2019 (UTC)

Current requests for reduction in protection level[edit]

Please post requests in this section for removing or reducing the protection level of a page if the protecting admin is inactive or you have already asked them.
  • To find out the username of the admin who protected the page click on "history" at the top of the page, then click on "View logs for this page" which is under the title of the page. The protecting admin is the username in blue before the words "protected", "changed protection level" or "pending changes". If there are a number of entries on the log page, you might find it easier to select "Protection log" or "Pending changes log" from the dropdown menu in the blue box.
  • Requests to downgrade full protection to template protection on templates and modules can be directed straight here; you do not need to ask the protecting admin first.
  • Requests for removing create protection on redlinked articles are generally assisted by having a draft version of the intended article prepared beforehand.
  • If you want to make spelling corrections or add uncontroversial information to a protected page please add {{Edit fully-protected}} to the article's talk page, along with an explanation of what you want to add to the page. If the talk page is protected please use the section below.

Check the rolling archive if you cannot find your request. Only recently answered requests are still listed here.User:Rmhermen/Decrease

Current requests for edits to a protected page[edit]

Ideally, requests should be made on the article talk page rather than here.

  • Unless the talk page itself is protected, you may instead add the appropriate template among {{Edit protected}}, {{Edit template-protected}}, {{Edit extended-protected}}, or {{Edit semi-protected}} to the article's talk page if you would like to make a change rather than requesting it here. Doing so will automatically place the page in the appropriate category for the request to be reviewed.
  • Where requests are made due to the editor having a conflict of interest (COI; see Wikipedia:Suggestions for COI compliance), the {{request edit}} template should be used.
  • Requests to move move-protected pages should be made at Wikipedia:Requested moves, not here.
  • If the discussion page and the article are both protected preventing you from making an edit request, this page is the right place to make that request. Please see the top of this page for instructions on how to post requests.
  • This page is not for continuing or starting discussions regarding content should both an article and its discussion page be protected. Please make a request only if you have a specific edit you wish to make.User:Rmhermen/Edit

Create a level 3 header with a link to the article in question, then a {{Pagelinks}} template and then the reason. It looks like this: Example (edit | talk | history | links | watch | logs) your request here. ~~~~

List of Kid vs. Kat episodes

List of Kid vs. Kat episodes (edit | talk | history | links | watch | logs)

Request: Copy and paste leading para from home article complete with logo. (taken from Google) No episode guide I repeat no episode guide should ever had a "This is a list of episode for the (network name goes here) series..." syntax. It sounds very improper and ragged.

"Do you want to take a survey?"[edit]

On Feb. 12, 2005, I did a random pages survey. Out of 100 random pages, only 1 was a U.S. town. That's progress. Three towns in the UK, 1 in Spain and 1 in Portugal also turned up. Overall biographies were the largest category at 22%, followed by geography with 15% total. Then Lists at 7%, Disambiguation pages at 6%.

On Feb. 24, 2006, I repeated the 100 random page survey, this time getting 5 U.S. towns. Overall, geography had 26%, biography 21%, fiction 9%, music 4%, colleges 4%, lists 3% and disambigs 4%. Clearly geography and biography are our largest areas. Music, science and business scored less than I expected. Non-individual History was hardly discernable.

Even by Feb. 2005, 100 out of almost 500,000 was not statistically significant but was as much as I had patience for.

Short To Do list[edit]

Early Anon work, no need to bug the developers[edit]

Up to Dec 16, 2003, all the edits at these anonymous id's were mine (59 edits):

More recently 1,250 or so edits on 75.41.110.200 are apparently all mine. Apparently my new ID is 75.41.109.190. There are undoubtedly many others as the earliest history of many articles was not preserved by the software.

List of most of my original pictures and some maps[edit]

  • Update March 21, 2006 by searching with Interiot's Tool (no longer updated - [5] does edit counts though)

Maps[edit]
