In the words of Bender off Futurama, I’m back baby.I'm StraussInTheHouse (talk · contribs · logs), formerly DrStrauss.

Note: I hold a legitimate alternative account, StraussOutOfTheHouse, authorised here. This is currently authorised for testing purposes on Test Wikipedia only and should not make any edits to the English Wikipedia except for the creation of its userpage to authenticate that I control it.



Wikipedia activitiesEdit

My main areas of activity are anti-vandalism, new page patrolling, closing move discussions, discussing deletions and clearing backlogs. Especially this one.

I sometimes assess pending changes, create articles, rename files, improve articles and do copyedits too.

I'm also active in the Wikipedia IRC channels.

How to decipher what I'm sayingEdit

Generally I avoid abbreviations on pages of any kind but I use them a lot in things like edit summaries and log entries. More Wikipedia jargon can be found here, but this is just the stuff I use.
