Calidum (formerly Hot Stop) is a Wikipedian from Boston. He first joined the site in April 2011. Prior to signing up for an account, he read Wikipedia in his free time and even followed some discussions on site, occasionally editing anonymously. Calidum is mostly a WikiGnome, meaning his main contributions are to fighting vandalism and minor copy-editing. A frequent participant at Wikipedia: In the news, Calidum also likes to weigh in on move requests and is known to make non-admin closures to less contentious discussions.

Since joining Wikipedia, Calidum has written three articles. He wrote Charles II de Cossé, Duke of Brissac on July 17, 2011, followed by George Godsey on September 20, 2011. The latter would go on to appear on the Main Page's "Did You Know" section four days after being written. Calidum started the third article, Mike Hazen, on September 24, 2015.

Calidum has run for a seat on Wikipedia's Arbitration Conmittee thrice: in 2011, 2014 and 2016. All three were unsuccessful, but his 2016 finish (55.89 percent) was the best of any non-administrator in more than a decade.

A kitten for you!
New to Wiki, so, thanks (sorry for the oversight on the media mention but, alas, the undo undid both where the ball went exactly AND the media cite). Glad we got it worked out.

common sense
Thank you, Latin hot spot, for quality articles such as George Godsey and (more so) for your tireless gnomish work, dealing with ITN nominations, vandalism, unconstructive editing, page moves and requested moves, for being willing to serve in the toughest job around using the rare term "common sense" in the context, - you are an awesome Wikipedian!
