About Me

Hello! Welcome to my User Page. I am Operator873 and I'm an admin on Simple English Wikipedia. If you're reading this, I assume you are curious about who I am. I am a veteran of the US Air Force and was Honorably Discharged after six years of service. Since then, I've worked in various law enforcement positions over the last 15 years. Recently, I resigned and left the career field to pursue my dream: Network Security.

My focus on Wikipedia is countervandalism, content control, administrative upkeep, and Long Term Abuse investigations. You'll occasionally find me working on creating, simplifying, or improving articles; but I'll be the first to admit, this is not my strongest skill. I enjoy helping new users and explaining Wikipedia policies and procedures that are difficult to grasp.

I work off-wiki developing bots for on-wiki use and volunteer as an OTRS Agent. On English Wikipedia, I also work at ACC creating accounts.

I check my talk page often and will respond there if you leave me a message. However, if you need assistance quickly, I'm always online and reachable via Internet Relay Chat (IRC) in the #wikipedia-simple connect channel. My nick is Operator873 just like here on Wikipedia. If I'm away and unable to respond to your message right away, please feel free to ask anyone else in the channel.

Have fun! Be kind! Be bold! And, whatever you do, don't bite the new editors!

If I reverted Your Edits

I do make mistakes, occasionally. If you disagree with the actions I took, ask me about it and I'll be happy to discuss it with you, if needed.
