  20. THWAAA. A very constructive editor who has contributed some excellent articles. Dbiv 16:28, 25 Feb 2005 (UTC)
  21. Support I don't really think that sparsely using edit summaries should keep anyone from being an admin, especially such a strong editor. Andrew Lenahan - Starblind 17:25, Feb 25, 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. Like other candidates I aim to help with the general problems of reverting vandalism, providing protection and dealing with difficult IP addresses. I'd also aim to specifically help in the area of naming conventions in helping ensure articles conform to them and, where necessary, perform the admins required to ensure compliance.

    2. Of your articles or contributions to Wikipedia, are there any about which you are particularly pleased, and why?

    A. I guess that Neville Chamberlain is probably the long article I'm pleased with the most - there's a lot more information about Chamberlain's entire career rather than the usual overheavy focus on his European policy. Of the shorter articles George Canning is one I feel works better now than before. I've also been happy to get stub pages up for a lot of inter-war British politicians, making a better flow for the navi boxes.

    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. The main editing conflicts I've had was a while ago and revolved around the list of leaders of the Conservative Party (UK) and exactly who if anyone was "Leader of the overall party" - we resolved that harmoniusly by switching the format and copying the one for the Liberal Party (UK). Otherwise my main irritation is when people start changing the placement of peers in categories on the spurious argument "we list people by names not positions" when most are known by their title which is part of the name. I've reverted a few here (and others have done the same) and will do so again when it leads to a strange category placing.
