With regards to Wikipedia, a few things you should know about me:
- I try to accommodate. I'm sure every personality type is represented here, and surely some people just aren't going to get along. I try to practice common courtesy, with Zen being the popular word to describe it; "Go with the flow". However, even the deepest river has a limit to how much crap it can flow over and still remain calm. But I do my best.
- I'm not perfect. If I've done something wrong or offended you, please let me know — I most likely didn't even realise what happened! I'm mostly a friendly chap. See WP:AGF and WP:BITE.
- I try to evoke discussion. I strongly believe in healty, vigorous debate as well as WP:CITE, so additions without motivation can sometimes be viewed under increased scrutiny, especially when I'm on patrol for vandalism. Without proper references and citations, there are times when it can be difficult to tell between fact and targetted vandalism, and then one tends to err on the side of caution.
- I tend towards inclusionism. There are no storage issues on Wikipedia, but I agree with WP:NOT and Wikipedia:Notability.
I take an interest in articles specifically related to this part of the world. My first edit and article here under my username was made in September 2004. According to Interiot's tool, my 1000th edit was just a bit of housekeeping, my 2000th edit was starting Karen Zoid. I've been active on the Afrikaans Wikipedia since at least July 2004, where I'm an administrator. You may or may not be interested in my contributed image gallery or to-do list. I try to remove spam on Wikipedia as I come across it.
