File mover: I proposed the idea of making it a user right in February 2011, it was approved and implemented in March.
Svenbot: In August of 2011 I became the proud operator of an approved bot account. Mind you, Fastily was the one that coded all of the programs I have run thus far, but I'm still quite proud to be a bot operator.
File namespace noticeboard: I proposed the establishment of a centralized page for file namespace issues to be discussed by the file worker community, and after a discussion at the Village Pump, it was formally established in December 2011.
Failed RfA Advice: After a few users that I worked with went through unsuccessful RfAs and kinda lost their sense of direction, I created this essay to both encourage them and to give them tips so that their next RfA might be more successful.
The monster under the rug: An essay published in the Signpost on 31 October 2011. It was covered by two external blogs and generated 70,000 bytes of talk page commentary.
Links & Tools
Sandbox: My sandboxes. I have four, plus talk pages if I need them (I usually do). Click on the link to get to the sandbox directory.
Admin Reading List: A useful grouping of policies and instructional manuals regarding Wikipeda. My personal belief is that just like people go to law school before becoming lawyers and people go to medical school before becoming doctors, people need to go to admin school before becoming admins. I would be in favor of making the reading of the entire collection a prerequisite to running for RfA.
Antandrus's observations on Wikipedia behavior: This essay both prompts refection on one's own behavior and contextualizes the behaviors of others. I recognize in it the seeds of some of the best advice I have received from some of the users whom I have come to trust the judgement of the most. Certainly an important read for just about anyone.
X!'s Counter: For those suffering editcountitis, use once daily. Also of interest to fans of colorful graphs.
Noommos' Media Tool: A tremendously useful tool for quickly generating a list of images on a given page. It even sorts them into free use and fair use for you. It's a bit sensitive to overtaxing, so don't use it on pages with more than two dozen or so images, but otherwise it's just awesome.
Nikola's File Detector Tool: Great for file movers, this tool generates lists of files using regular expression patterns, making it easy to find files that badly need renaming. If you follow the link, the most useful regular expression is preloaded, just replace PICT with any camera generated prefix and you're good to go.
TTO's For the Common Good: A godsend for anyone who wants to help with the massive backlog of files that need to be transferred to Wikimedia Commons.
