About MeEdit


My name is SNUGGUMS and welcome to my userpage. Lots of my work on Wikipedia involves biographies of both living and deceased people, as well as articles relating to/associated with such people. Music, television, film, business, and politics are common topics I edit. When not trying to improve articles on my own, I sometimes participate in AFD (Articles for deletion) and RM (Requested moves) discussions or review FA (Featured article) candidates, FL (Featured list) candidates, GA (Good article) nominations, and DYK (Did you know) nominations. For any questions and comments you might have for me, please post them at my talk page or send me an email. When possible, be sure to leave a notice on my talk page if you send any emails to me.

The biggest goal I have is helping ensure pages on this site are well-written, accurate, informative, and neutral. I overall seek more to enhance pages worth keeping around (even if only making minor improvements in any of the previously mentioned ways or getting rid of copyright violations) than deal with administrator maintenance or incidents of poor conduct. However, it's inevitable that I'll sometimes have to call others out for doing things they shouldn't have, even if it means reporting them to administrators or placing comments on their noticeboard of incidents (sometimes called the "dramaboard"). As flattering as it might be for others to say I should be an administrator myself, I simply don't have enough time, energy, interest, or patience to serve as one. Please don't ask me to run for adminship.

Thank you, who thinks "that strength comes from one's argument", for quality articles such as G.U.Y. and Katy Perry, achieved in a long history of tireless polishing and in collaboration, for reviewing the quality articles of others, and for countering gender bias peacefully, - you are an awesome Wikipedian!

Mentorship doesn't always work out the way it's supposed to, I know that from experience. Regardless, it was very noble of you to stand up and offer to mentor another editor like that. Not many people around here at all would have even considered doing that, but I can't emphasize enough how much I appreciate you making the effort to help another person. Very impressive. That's what we need here, so please do keep it up. Best regards, Swarm we ♥ our hive 05:32, 9 April 2015 (UTC)

I still think I am not some bigshot guy yet who can issue barnstars, and awards. So I made a work-around barnstar for you. Here it is. The oldest star on the keyboard, but with a zoom of 222%.
