Hello! I'm Mr. Stradivarius, and I've been editing Wikipedia regularly since 2010. In real life I teach English in Japan, and I like to write about second-language acquisition and language education. Some of the articles I have contributed to are listed below.

I also have diverse interests outside of writing content. I am a member of the Mediation Committee, and I mediate disputes there from time to time. I have also helped out a lot at the dispute resolution noticeboard, but I haven't been active there recently. I also like writing templates, and I occasionally do new page patrol and recent changes patrol.

I became an administrator in August 2012 (my RfA) and now I do a lot of administrative tasks. You can most often see me helping to reduce the backlog at Category:Wikipedia protected edit requests, and I like answering requests for page protection. From time to time I also help out at articles for deletion, candidates for speedy deletion, and requests for permissions.

If you have any questions about an administrative action that I've taken, please feel free to ask me about it on my talk page. If I've done something stupid I'll be happy to reverse whatever I have done. (And if it's particularly stupid you can leave me a nice, fresh trout-slap.)

Also, if you were wondering about my username: the "Mr." is so that people can avoid using things like s/he when talking about me, and "Stradivarius" is the name of a camel I once owned. (True story.) That, and I play the violin, although the one I play isn't actually a Stradivarius. A lot of editors here call me "Strad" for short, but I'll answer to most things.
