Hi, I'm Dennis Brown, and yes, that is my real name. I live in North Carolina, US but I've lived all over the USA and traveled to even more of it. I've been fortunate enough to have visited a few countries, like Belgium, Moldova and Mexico. Still, the southern United States is my home and it probably shows in my writing and administration. I'm neither Democrat nor Republic; I'm not a Christian nor Atheist. I avoid editing topics I have strong views on altogether.

I'm an admin on the English Wikipedia, have been since April of 2012. I started editing in 2006, and as of Nov. 2017, I have around 50,000 edits over the whole project, so I'm a moderate editor. I'm a huge fan of the concept of a Free Encyclopedia, even if I'm not a fan of upper management. The good we do trumps my personal feelings on that. Still, I'm not afraid to speak my mind, and when appropriate, I do without hesitation. I'm the type of person that is more concerned with using common sense than trying to parse out every ounce of meaning from a written policy. Playing nice at Wikipedia isn't rocket science.

If you are seeing this page, this means this is probably a wiki I don't frequent very often. I frequently have to be absent for days or even a couple of weeks, or there are many weeks when I simply don't have more than a few minutes a day. That is the real world for you. If you want to contact me, the best way is to use the email feature on the English Wikipedia. I check that constantly. If it is something on the English Wikipedia that needs admin attention quickly, you are probably better off asking someone else or using the appropriate admin board.
