Users of this template are, in my experience, typically being dishonest:

History[edit]

Creation[edit]

I created, revived or defended, here and on commons, many licensing templates, including {{PD-FLGov}}, used for over 100 commons images and many en images, as well as {{FLGovernment}}, {{PD-CAGov}}, {{PD-MAGov}}, {{PD-NJGov}} (which lost a foolish TfD and DR, both railroaded by Carnildo), and {{PD-laws}}. Proud of these 2 widely positively impactful edits I think'll help users a lot - people who couldn't (figure out how to/easily) search archives are able to quickly do so now, on ~50,000 (?+40,000) popular pages, hopefully improving discussion quality!

Articles I created include:

Deletion[edit]

On the deletion side, I RfD'd inappropriate state copyright templates, like PD-MDGov.

Articles I had deleted include:


To Do[edit]

Write MAT release. [1] [2] See/make/redirect B-roll, VNR.

Security[edit]

Padlock.svg This page is encrypted. And if you believe that just because that lock and statement appear here, your computer is probably infected and you need reeducation.

(Well, OK, it might be encrypted; you might be viewing this page over https, but it's not likely. Secure Wikipedia access is now possible, and getting easier and more common. [Link to stats showing fraction of pages served over https - needs to be found])
