Elsewhere, I have been a manager, mechanical engineer, programmer, writer, welder, fabricator and forklift driver (albeit not in that order).

On here, I'm just some guy who's an editor for fun. I'm the editor-in-chief of the Signpost, and write some articles for it: check it out! I have the autopatrolled, page mover, mass message sender, new page reviewer, pending changes reviewer, and rollbacker user rights, so I can help out wherever those are necessary. I'm an administrator, which includes all of those, plus extra bonus stuff.

I take lots of photos: one is a Featured Picture. Check out my Commons userpage if you want to see more. Below is some of the stuff I've done around here, mostly so I can keep track of it. If you are trying to form an opinion of me quickly, take a look at this software and this article.

Software edit

All AfDs from 2005 to 2020, analyzed with the Oracle

These will help you be a cool guy, like me.

  • Oracle for Deletion: a live dashboard of all open AfD discussions. You can click to instantly sort by age, subject, keep/delete ratio, number of comments, page size, et cetera. There are also detailed statistics and sortable month summaries for all 482,281 discussions going back to 2005 (including sick-ass graphs). You ever wonder what the biggest deletion discussion of all time was? Now you know.
  • PressPass: a collection of tools for using, including enhanced search and configurable auto-citation in five different formats. This will automatically generate fully formatted {{cite news}} templates from clippings (not that half-assed Citoid output), from the convenience of your own browser window.
  • CurrentSwitcher: this gives you links on your contribs page to hide duplicate entries, current revisions, rollbacks, huggles, twinkles, and redwarns. This allows you to use your contribs page as an easy way to check if people have responded to your comments/questions, or look at which discussions/pages have been active since your last post.
  • I've made a couple Solarized versions of Wikipedia skins, here and here (which look like this). Only the Vector (and legacy Vector) skin (here) is actively maintained.

The ones after this are pretty boring, and recommended only for extreme nerds.

  • TrackSum: this lets you automatically sum the lengths of tracks in templates like {{track listing}} and get total runtimes.
  • WigOut: this gives you clickable links to Earwig's Copyvio Checker next to each diff on a CCI casepage.
  • Unbreaker: this gives you a button to fix those messed-up <br /> tags (i.e. <br>) which cause the syntax highlighter to go bonkers.
  • CopyTitle: a fork of Novem Linguae's CopyTitle.js, which puts a small button next to the title of an article which copies it to your clipboard. Mine makes it a little smaller and shortens it from "copy" to "c".
  • Monthcounter: A very, very niche script: adds a button to the "more" tab at the top of the page which goes through the text in the edit box, counts the occurrences of "January", "February" [...] "December", and outputs a tab-delimited summary of each count in the edit box. I made this for the sole purpose of tallying up arb enforcement log entries for arbitration reports in the Signpost. Maybe it will be useful for something else.
More random crap can be found in my PrefixIndex, although I don't provide any warranty for what you find in there being useful or finished.

GA reviews I've done of others' articles edit

Islands edit

This is an adapted version of {{Islands of Suisun Bay and the Sacramento–San Joaquin River delta}}, but instead of all 100 islands, it only lists the 75 I wrote articles for.

This is the same thing, for 26 of the 60 articles in {{Islands of the San Francisco Bay Area}}.
