Admin[edit]

I am an admin on en. You can look me up on Wikipedia:List_of_administrators.

Conflicts of Interest[edit]

There is a discussion going on at [1] regarding COI editing. I don't think a requirement to disclose goes far enough. The whole concept of being paid to edit Wikipedia on behalf of a client or employer is an inherent COI and should be banned outright.

A number of my past (and present) employers have wikipedia articles about them. I recuse myself from editing any of these, to avoid any possible COI:

I am a member of Harlem Yacht Club. Since I am not an employee or otherwise compensated by the club, I do not feel as strong a prohibition against editing information related to the club. I have, however, created an alternate account, User:RoySmith-HYC. Should I decide to do any editing of material related to the club, I will use that account to emphasize the COI relationship.

Articles of interest[edit]

Things I learned today[edit]

After 10 years on wikipedia, I just noticed that there's a function to clear everything off your watchlist and start from zero. WIN!
