OK, please excuse me if I don't articulate this all very well, I've always been terrible at self-promotion. I want to be an admin because I want to help the project. I signed up as a flickr reviewer a few weeks ago because I felt there was a bit of a backlog I could help clear. According to a wikiproject edit counter, I made 903 total edits, of which over 100 were likely tagging images as copyright violations. I often work on Category:Unsourced Flickr images reviewed by FlickreviewR, searching flickr for the original images. I would also like to mention that it was Herbythyme who originally suggested to me that I become an admin. Finnrind, giggy and Kanonkas also pointed me in this direction.

Thanks for listening. -mattbuck (Talk) 17:32, 19 May 2008 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I'll correct your nomination: your deleted contribs show you've tagged over 100 images in the last week alone. From everything I've seen so far you know what you're doing as well as anyone. Good luck. Lewis Collard! (hai thar, wut u doin) 18:08, 19 May 2008 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I've asked the candidate many questions which seems to be good. A little unsure about our protection policy, but he will catch up ;) --Kanonkas(talk) 19:10, 19 May 2008 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Trustworthy and hard working user who could make good use of the tools. What he may lack in experience is outweighted by his ability to learn and good communications with other users. I was planning to nominate him, but he beat me to it :( Finn Rindahl 19:17, 19 May 2008 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support per my begging and pleading for him to run. Good with Flickr, good with tagging, good username, etc. etc. etc. giggy (:O) 23:04, 19 May 2008 (UTC)
    Good username? Should we add that to COM:GTA? Rocket000 07:06, 20 May 2008 (UTC)
    Not sure if that's a good idea; we might need to request your de-sysopping then. ;) giggy (:O) 07:24, 21 May 2008 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Yes, definitely. Rocket000 07:06, 20 May 2008 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I'm happy with this one (& offered to nom). "double handling" deletions seems silly & this user has tagged plenty - there may be mistakes but we all make them & I'm sure he will learn. Thanks --Herby talk thyme 10:12, 20 May 2008 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I would love you to dig a bit deeper in cases like e.g. this, this and this. Lycaon 07:56, 20 May 2008 (UTC)
Well, in general I try fairly hard to find these sorts of images, and I thought I looked through all images matching "Acteal", I suppose I must have missed them. I try to eyeball every image if there are under 500 or so returned by the search. In most cases where I can't find the correct image, there is nothing but an image name to go on, and that can be something which turns out to be horribly generic. I don't think anyone can claim to never make mistakes, and I certainly won't try. However, I will make sure I try harder in future. -mattbuck (Talk) 10:03, 20 May 2008 (UTC)
