My aim is, and has always been, to make fair edits that benefit the encyclopedia as a whole. I will occasionally make mistakes; if you notice, please feel free to leave me a message on my talk page.

I help newcomers get accustomed to the project, and participate in a number of housekeeping duties. I also translate articles from the Japanese Wikipedia into English articles here. In addition, I am one of the people answering the info-en OTRS queue, and an administrator on Meta and the Simple English Wikipedia.

About the name

According to Tangotango, Tangotango is a woman in Polynesian mythology "who had intercourse with Tawhaki and was the mother of Arahuta". Having never studied Polynesian mythology before, this makes no sense to me whatsoever. In fact, I found out about her after creating my account.

A recent revision to the article reveals that Tangotango is also called Hapai, and that "Tawhaki and his brother set out on a great adventure to find her".

I have a few personal guidelines I follow on Wikipedia. I may, however, deviate from them at times, in the spirit of Ignore All Rules.

  • I will not speedy delete articles unless they are obviously nonsense or disparage the subject. In all other cases, if I feel an article should be speedy deleted, I will tag it with the appropriate tag and wait for another admin to delete it.
  • I am not party to any of the various deletion philosophies. I delete when articles do not add anything useful, or degrade the quality of, the encyclopedia.
