The username is lcarsos. pronounced el-cars-oh-ess. The only other acceptable capitalizations are LCARSOS or LCARS OS. The second of those is frowned upon because that should be used for any project attempting to create an LCARS operating system, or overlay/window manager. And lastly, '''never''' Lcarsos, despicable.

I'm your local admin/'crat, you can come to me with problems and questions. Some may call me a {{w|BOFH}} (And I have been known to jokingly self-deprecate as well), but I promise, honest questions will get an honest response.

Some days I feel like the English that comes out of my mouth is as coherent as [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wz04IBZqfFE this video]. <small>(For those who need backstory: He is an Italian artist who made a song to let English speakers know what Rock 'n Roll sounds like to non-English-native people.)</small>

Here, I'm just working backwards from the beginning to create missing pages, fix existing pages, updating them to the current header, adding categories, fixing double redirects, etc. I also try to find as much work for the admins as possible (just kidding).

Sorry about taking a summer off to recharge. There must be a curse with becoming a bureaucrat that causes them to suddenly drop off the face of the universe. In any case, I'm coming back to the great township of explainxkcd, I'll be taking it pretty lax while I'm coming back up to speed as I'm fairly certain SOP can change over 4 months.
