Home | About Me


My name is Deborah Fisher, and I first accessed wikipedia in March 2002.

I'd like to thank everyone who supported my nomination for sysop status. I'm also a bureaucrat (or biwrocrat) on the Welsh version of wikipedia, where I now spend nearly as much time as I do in the English version. We have so much to do that my lack of fluency in Welsh isn't a great handicap. If there are any Welsh speakers reading this, get over there - we need you!



Some other users seem to feel that they should have the right to unprotect user pages, on the grounds that "there is no reason for them to be protected". A user page is meant for that user. It is not an article, and the contents are not within the public domain.  We do not have the right to make offensive or insulting comments on our user pages. Beyond that there is no reason for anyone else to edit our user pages, and consequently there is no reason for them to be unprotected.

Much of the time I normally spend on contributing worthwhile material to wikipedia and on correcting real errors and real vandalism was being spent on disputes with other people about whether my user page should be protected or not. What a stupid, pointless waste of everyone's time.

The picture on the right is about 3 years old, but I don't think I've changed a lot.  It was taken by my good friend, Rhys Jones, and the copyright is his.  If you want to see more, click on the link below.

What's New?

What's new is that I've built myself an alternative user page that no one else can edit.  Information about me will be held here, at least until such time as the great debate is resolved.
