    On leave from admin work
    I am focused almost[1] exclusively on content work for the time being, and will politely defer requests for admin action elsewhere.

    My name is Tamzin Hadasa Kelly.[2] Yes, Tamzin is a real name,[3] pronounced /ˈtæmzɪn/ in most American accents. I take she / her, they / them, or xe / xem pronouns.[4] I live in Cape May County, New Jersey.

    I am, first and foremost, an editor here. Over the years, I've taken on a few additional roles, including administrator,[5] sockpuppet investigations clerk, bot operator ('zinbot), and global renamer.[6]

    I previously edited under the usernames Francophonie&Androphilie (Nov. 2012 – Jan. 2013) and PinkAmpersand (Jan. 2013 – Oct. 2020). Please see User:Tamzin/Disclosures and commitments for other policy-compliance stuff and some notes on accountability.

I received DYK credit for my minority contributions to the former, but don't really feel I earned the topicon, and so instead will celebrate with a single ASCII question mark: ?

    Several things that make editing easier[edit]

    The pipe trick exists and I feel like a lot of people don't know about that because it doesn't show up in diffs. (Update: This has since been confirmed by multiple functionaries telling me they hadn't heard of it till they read this.)

    I use Twinkle, RedWarn, and popups for a whole bunch of useful things. The first two's relevance depends on your editing style, but I think popups is indispensable to any editor. At XfDs I use XFDCloser.

    Three controversial opinions about Wikipedia[edit]

    1. WP:NODISCLAIMERS has outlived its usefulness. As a major provider of information to a global audience, we should hold ourselves to disclaimer standards similar to those of major media organizations.
    2. We should not allow BLPs about people who do not unambiguously meet GNG, as established by references that are actually in their articles. Any BLP subject who has not been the subject of long-term coverage in reliable sources as an adult should be able to have their article deleted on request.
    3. It's spelled "lede".

    One lie I've told[edit]

    I don't actually need a cetacean. I live quite close to a beach that dolphins routinely swim by. I have all the cetaceans I could ever need.

    Three dolphins dive in the midground on the left, swimming toward the right of the frame. In the background on the right, a fairly large vehicle ferry sails toward the left of the frame. In the foreground, a beach of brown sand with some black rock outcroppings toward the waterline.
    Cetaceans acquired


    1. ^ I may still block the occasional vandal or such, or follow up on past admin actions.
    2. ^ Acceptable nicknames: 'zin, TZ, T.H.. Please no Tam or Tammy. Not a gender thing; I just don't like them as names.
    3. ^ Tamzin is the feminine form of Thomas, my birth name; I chose this name when I transitioned so that I would still be named after my grandfather, Thomas V. Kelly (Z''L), a lifelong opponent of fascism and all who would govern by fear (see Edwin Walker § Political career). My middle name at birth was Harrison, after my great-grandfather Harry (Z''L), who fled Poland in the build-up to HaShoah and started a family here, doing the most audacious thing a Jew can do: live. In the Jewish tradition, it is common to name people after relatives by sharing just an initial. Thus, when I transitioned, I preserved the aitch in his honor, picking the new middle name Hadasa, the birth name of Queen Esther—the original antifascist, a woman who through both wit and beauty convinced her husband, the king, that it was not enough merely to spare the Jews death; we needed the right to fight back. (See tattoo.)
