Hello, and welcome to my user page.

I also edit the German Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons as Sandstein. On public computers, I use the account Sandstein II for security reasons.

I am an administrator on the English language Wikipedia. If there is anything I can help you with, you're welcome to leave me a message on my talk page.

For privacy and transparency reasons, I prefer not to communicate by e-mail unless there is a compelling reason for private communication. If you e-mail me through Wikipedia's "E-mail this user" function, I reserve the right to reproduce the e-mail and to answer it on your user talk page. I will not do this if the e-mail is of a clearly confidential nature, or if you ask me not to make the e-mail public. But in the latter case I may not reply if I do not believe that there is a good reason for off-wiki communication.

Thanks for reviewing me and pointing my mistakes out. I haven't learnt well XFD's yet, so I was bound for something like that. I didn't realise (I missed the policy and the essay), I was out of tune. Thanks for reviewing me and thanks so much for slamming me hard instead being really nice. It is very appreciated. A barnstar is hereby awarded. Cheers!

Slakr's Barn Owl Award

Who needs a barn star when you can have a barn owl? The star just sits there and looks pretty. The barn owl, on the other hand, helps prevent excessive rodent infestation, since it's one of the most active rodent pest killers. Now all we've gotta do is train it to deal with vandal pests and we'll be set.

Anyway, just a general thanks for your dedication to making the encyclopedia better. Cheers =) --slakrtalk / 06:16, 26 July 2008 (UTC)

Thank you for being one of the only people who gets the point. I would've thought that people would be more wary of trolls given what happened regarding Kurt... but no, harassment and blatant trolling is okay if you're dissenting. Sheesh. Sceptre (talk) 17:01, 29 May 2009 (UTC)

Thank you, Sandstein, for the great effort you consistently put into arbitration enforcement. It's a low reward task with a supersized and regular ration of crap, and we owe you for taking it on. Nathan T 13:58, 14 September 2009 (UTC)

WikiDefender Barnstar.png The Defender of the Wiki Barnstar
For admirably sedulous administrative oversight, through the contentious Nacht und Nebel of chronic editorial conflict in the I/P area in defence of the rigorous maintenance of the highest standards in Wikipedia, in what will always be an unrewarding task of difficult judgement calls.
