I've been on Wikipedia for about nine years but I edit less often than many other long-term users. These days most of my edits are related to anti-vandalism and general site maintenance. As of June 16, 2010 I am an administrator on the English Wikipedia. Please note that since I mostly work in the areas of vandalism cleanup, many of my edits are to pages containing obscenities or otherwise inappropriate content. If I happen to be among the first people you meet on Wikipedia I want to make sure I don't give you the wrong impression about what the most common sort of edits on Wikipedia are.

I am not an active edit filter manager, but I've decided it's better to leave the userright on for the few occasions I do need it (always at the request of someone else), rather than keep switching it on and off.

Although rarely called upon, my name isn't just a nickname; I am fairly knowledgeable about bath and body products as well as mass-produced candy.

RETIRED
This user is no longer active on Wikipedia.
Did You Know: Palm trees grow naturally in Seattle, Washington.


I know I just said Im retired, but I will still edit from time to time to fix typos. This is because I am still an active reader of wikipedia, just no an active editor. THus I can see my talk page and will still respond to messages. But this retirement is real, not like several times before. Soap 17:01, 26 October 2015 (UTC)

My apologies if the edit summary here seems offensive. I actually had one person in mind in particular when I wrote that and he is in his 30s now. Soap 16:20, 21 October 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
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.

I have never abused my power. If you told me I had 24 hours left to rule, and was getting sitebanned after that no matter what, I still wouldnt abuse my powers in those last few hours. Soap 23:32, 29 December 2015 (UTC)
