My interests lie in categorization within wikipedia. I have noticed that folks working on WP:CFD are over worked. Since I create a lot of the work for them, I thought it best to help out. Sortior 23:36, Dec 31, 2004 (UTC)


  1. User has made almost 7500 edits, about 100 in early September 2004 and the rest since 2 Nov. Most of the edits are categorisation. This puts me to shame, as it took me several times as long to achieve a similar edit count by similar means. Warm support.-gadfium 23:56, 31 Dec 2004 (UTC)
  2. Sure. An uncontroversial, behind-the-scenes worker. --Slowking Man 00:43, Jan 1, 2005 (UTC)

Questions for the candidate
A few generic questions to provide guidance for voters:

1. What sysop chores, if any, would you anticipate helping with? (Please read the page about administrators and the administrators' reading list.)
A. I mostly view myself helping out with WP:CFD, along my categorization work, I find my share of speedies, and vandalism, which I would help with as well. I try not to get to involved in edit wars, but if requested will help.
2. Of your articles or contributions to Wikipedia, are there any about which you are particularly pleased, and why?
A. Particulary pleased with no. I have written a few articles, but quickly turned my focus to categorization which has been messy. I do a lot of syntax fixing, worked on the cities project, keep orphan categories to a minimum, written a few bug reports. Just normal work a day stuff. Not looking to create the perfect article, just help with the edit tasks.
3. Have you been in any conflicts over editing in the past or do you feel other users have caused you stress? How have you dealt with it and will deal with it in the future?
A. Stress... I do this to relax. Everyone is entitled to their point of view. I am not so vested in any one subject to cause me or I hope anyone else stress. I have made a few category changes, that folks have wondered about, and have stated my positions. For the most part I have found people to be very civil.
