Welcome to my userpage. I'm Patar knight, a Canadian Wikipedian. I've been editing since September 2006, and I've been an administrator since June 2009. I trying to become a licensed lawyer.

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns about my Wikipedia work please either:

I'll try to reply ASAP.

EtymologyEdit

My first name is not "Patar" and my last name is not "Knight". My username comes from a name I used for video gaming, which itself comes from a nickname I got from friends back in middle school.

Wikipedia workEdit

Most of my early work was topics that I was interested in at the time, many of which I no longer edit. The following are articles where I contributed some of my best work, in roughly chronological order:

Shiny, definitely highly-important baublesEdit

  The Featured Sound Main Page Proposal Voter Barnstar
I was truly humbled by the overwhelming community support for the recent proposal to place featured sounds on the main page. The proposal closed on Tuesday with 57 people in support and only 2 in opposition.

It should take a few weeks for everything to get coded and tested, and once that is done the community will be presented with a mock up to assess on aesthetic appeal.

Finally, I invite all of you to participate in the featured sounds process itself. Whether you're a performer, an uploader, or just come across a sound file you find top quality, and that meets the featured sound criteria, you can nominate it at Wikipedia:Featured sound candidates. Featured sounds is also looking for people to help assess candidates (also at Wikipedia:Featured sound candidates.)

Thanks again for such a strong showing of support, and I hope to see you at featured sounds in the future.
