"Anti-intellectualism [is the] notion that democracy means that my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge."Isaac Asimov

I've just discovered that I'm not receiving emails from Wikipedia because I use Yahoo and, well, this. I do want to talk to editors, but you'll just have to use my talk page I'm afraid.

Hi, I'm Stuart Marshall. I live in Cambridgeshire in England (but am originally from Hertfordshire). I have varied interests on Wikipedia; look for me in unlikely places!

I edited occasionally as an IP in 2004 and 2005, and I registered this account in 2006, but was only sporadically active until 2008 or so. In 2009 I nominated two people for adminship: User:Fences and windows and User:LinguistAtLarge. Although they both seem to have worked out rather well, I've never nominated anyone since.

It's 15:46 on 21 November 2019.

An interesting thing

I know we have a long way to go, but with the RFC launched, this can't wait forever. For your immense efforts to improve wp:verifiability. Through your persistence and brilliant and direct writings, you have been one of the primary driving forces for improvement of this policy. North8000 (talk) 16:15, 29 June 2012 (UTC)

I've been meaning to leave this for you for a while. Your contributions at WP:DRV have always impressed me and yours is often a welcome dissenting opinion. I might not always agree with your take on things but I find myself regularly swayed, at least from my initial knee-jerk opinion, by your thoughtful commentary. Keep up the great work.

Perhaps I should wait to award this until the conflict is resolved, but however it turns out, I feel this was very tactfully handled by you, in how you recognized the contributions and perspectives of the two entrenched editors while urging things forward toward a more stable solution, a recommendation which seems to have been taken to heart by the involved editors. Wikipedia needs more bridge-building of this nature and so I hereby award you this Barnstar of Diplomacy. Snow (talk) 03:06, 21 April 2014 (UTC)
