My nickname[edit]

One day you feel like hummus hummus, and another like blintzes blintzes... The original idea was "homo sapiens" with a Mediterranean flavor. Only belatedly I have discovered that humus is different from the intended hummus. I love learning and I don't mind an earthly nick, especially after my friends found a deeper, meaning in it.

Who am I[edit]

I am a wikipedian. I've been a WPian since November 27, 2003 and a WP administrator since April 26, 2006, which excited some of my friends. Here, it only matters what we do, not who we are.

What do I do here[edit]

A list of the articles I've created or significantly contributed to is here. I dream that one day, when there is no more wars and vandalism, I'll be able to retire into some far-away corner of ancient history or Russian art. Meanwhile...

My policies[edit]

The policies I use as a guide in my editing and voting are here. I believe that converting the heat of raw emotions into the light of encyclopedic knowledge may alleviate animosity, if done within the framework of Wikipedia:Policies and guidelines based on Wikipedia:Five pillars. Unfortunately, many WP articles are frequently attacked by neo-nazis, jihadis, vandals, trolls, etc. I assume good faith but will revert, resist and ridicule hatemongers (within WP policies of course).

Today's puzzle[edit]

Some time ago I was puzzled by this image. If you know the story behind it, you may share your knowledge here.

My awards[edit]

The trophies are here. It's an honor and I appreciate good humor (where applicable).

Utility room[edit]

Some tools and links I keep handy for my own use.
