I used to be a prolific vandal fighter. Then, I decided to try RfA. What no one ever told me was that it was pure hell if you didn't get the answers 100% right, and I mean by the book answers. So I dabbed a little into article work. I decided it wasn't my thing, and tried again. When the second RfA came around, the opposes were much more biting. Not one moral support. Hell, I had one oppose based on the orange new messages bar I used to have (which had a totally different message; even a clown like Blu Aardvark could have been able to tell the difference!). And, of course, there were much more serious opposes, based on my little tirade from the Esperanza MfD. I can sum up my actions in that in two words: Big Mistake. It's caused nothing but problems. So, after that, I decided that I had to kill my Bushcarrot persona off the internet. I contribute under a new name now (won't mention which name, for obvious reasons). Anyway, that's my story.

Orphaned non-free media (File:Howard County Public School System logo.jpg)
Thanks for uploading File:Howard County Public School System logo.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).
If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Werieth (talk) 19:33, 5 September 2013 (UTC)
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
