This user generally follows a zero-reply rule, for much the same reasons as the zero-revert rule. To wit: in conversation as in editing, if this user's contribution is worthwhile, someone else will build on it. And if it isn't worth building on, then the less time spent on it the better. If a reply from this user is specifically desired for some unusual reason, a ping will help.

This user believes that the self is, at best, a convenient fiction -- a narrative center of gravity. Accordingly, any claims that this user "believes" anything should be viewed with great suspicion.

This user is not a fan of userboxes.

This user has received formal credentials attesting to at least passive fluency in languages that include German, Korean, French, Portuguese, Italian, Danish, Dutch, and Swedish. This user lacks any such credentials for English, but is a native speaker.

On redlinks[edit]

  1. Wikipedia is a connected system; topics are not covered through a single article, but through many related articles.
  2. Just as the presence of an article on one subject foretells the presence of articles on related subjects, the absence of an article foretells the absence of related articles. (This phenomenon manifests with greatest force in systemic bias.)
  3. Therefore, when creating or expanding an article, if your draft does not contain redlinks, you aren't done. -- Visviva (talk) 14:56, 24 November 2017 (UTC)
