promoted to administrator on Wikipedia

I just became an administrator on the English Wikipedia. I'd like to thank everyone who supported my nomination!

For the uninitiated, Wikipedia is an online encyclopedia that anyone can edit. The project is extremely active; the English edition currently has over 600,000 articles and counting. Administrators can do things like delete and protect pages, revert changes with one click and block users. This includes the ability to edit protected content, such as the main page and system interface messages. Pretty cool, huh?

Of course, with great power comes great responsibility. One must be cautious when making major changes to one of the biggest websites on the Internet. I'd probably be tarred and feathered if I'm not careful. ^_^

You can learn more about my Wikipedia contributions at my user page. Feel free to drop by my talk page and say hi. :-)
