I was once an administrator here on the Simple English Wikipedia. Here I mainly focus on article creation and anti-vandalism work. As well as small edits to a whole variety of articles, but mainly things I spot while browsing. I add my thoughts to Simple Talk and admin noticeboards, and change articles to make their meaning clearer. I have one very good article - Bloc Party.

If you're at my talk page to tell me I've done something wrong, go right ahead. As long as you keep it civil I'll be happy to right any possible wrongs. In the case the wrong is considered a lot more concerning feel free to notify others on the appropriate noticeboard, but please tell me first.

Caveat - I do apologise for my extreme laziness as well as my business on other Wikipedias - I am not deliberately ignoring Simple, merely forgetting to check about here often. I am likely to be better reached via my English Wikipedia userpage, although messages here will likely result in my receiving of an email and thus a response. :)

Hi Fox :-) I restored this article because I believe it was an error to quickly delete this article. It should have gone to WP:RFD instead. Best regards, fr33kman 03:22, 28 July 2011 (UTC)

Still alive?Edit

Its good to see you editing again. Its been a while... Normandy (talk) 12:08, 18 October 2011 (UTC)

Yeah that's something I'll need to work hard at to repair. The old people here seem to be going missing :P Well good to see you anyway! Try to stick around :) Normandy (talk) 17:16, 18 October 2011 (UTC)

Quick deletion of Two More Years EPEdit

Ambox warning pn.svg
The page you wrote, Two More Years EP, has been selected for quick deletion. This is because the page was a page that didn't say why the subject was notable. If you think this page should be kept, please add {{wait}} below the line {{QD}} and say why on the talk page. If the page is already gone, but you think this was an error, you can ask for it to be undeleted. Auntof6 (talk) 03:49, 22 February 2012 (UTC)

G'day Fox, one of your pages, the shortcut C:QD which is in mainspace, is impeding the implementation of 'c:' being a shortcut for Wikimedia Commons. See m:Requests_for_comment/Wikimedia_Commons_interwiki_prefix for more details. It looks like you are no longer using this shortcut, and the pageviews are quite low, so maybe {{db|a7}} will do the trick. John Vandenberg (talk) 04:42, 16 March 2014 (UTC)

Done. Joseph Fox 10:26, 16 March 2014 (UTC)
