BanyanTree seems an excellent user, janitorially and editorially. He has made numerous excellent articles and works admirably on countering systematic bias and featured article candidates. He has made 3031 edits in about five months, and I have no doubts as to his suitability. Smoddy (tgeck) 16:58, 27 Mar 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. Most immediately, I would like access to the rollback function to help with my vandalism reverting. (It should be noted that I am using Sam Hocevar's useful rollback emulator in my monobook.js already but it is not ideal.) Once I am comfortable as an administrator, I expect to get involved in banning vandals. I would also like to help clear out speedy deletes and the backlog at Wikipedia:Copyright problems. Oh yes, and I would like to be able to add items to "In the News"

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

    A. My first edit was to Lord's Resistance Army, which became a bit of an obsession. I was pleasantly surprised when Mark Dingemanse offered to make maps for it and blown away when it subsequently became featured. I contributed to 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake during the period when I was getting a grasp on how wiki worked, and am very pleased that it somehow did not devolve into chaos. Occasionally I find myself fascinated with the subject at the end of a redlink that I click on; Hafun and Kokomo Arnold spring to mind as short articles that I found totally absorbing.

    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. Early on, I got into some annoyed verbal sparring with Deeceevoice on the talk page of The dozens after he reverted one of my edits (Diff) and left what I felt was an insulting message on the talk page. The conversation eventually turned into good natured sparring over the credibility of various academic sources, and judging from his comments on the talk page of Mau Mau Uprising there are no bad feelings on either side. Trying to update and maintain 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake in late December was probably my most stressful time, in light of the incredible pace of editing and vandalism, which made it nearly impossible to make clean reverts. This was complicated by a multiuser revert war to stop Bobchalk's attempt to split the page prematurely. By this time, I was getting quite quick on the draw with reverts, which led to what I consider my most ill-considered edit. Fortunately the author, Lemi4, contacted me, which prompted me to check the edit again and apologize on User talk:Lemi4#Sorryhis talk page. These experiences helped me develop a more measured approach to editing that makes use of edit summaries and talk pages to explain what I am doing and why.
