Created from "100 Percent Certified Mammalian DNA" in the Stony Brook, NY labs of Bring On The Clones, L.L.P., ClockworkSoul achieved consciousness in the summer of 2004.
Only mildly dangerous to adults and large animals, this fully synthetic administrator's press materials describe him as "the spectacular progeny of the unholy marriage of modern science and of one man's complete disregard for the sanctity of life!"
His hobbies include spontaneous human combustion, collecting dirt, and cold logic. His turnoffs include time, the persistent physicality of things, barium, and three out of four dentists.
I am a staunch advocate for boldness in recognizing the hard work of others and of WikiLove in general. I'm one of the longest-serving editors on Wikipedia, my first edit (as ClockworkTroll) having been made on 20 June 2004.
Finally, when I'm here, I'm fiercely apolitical. I believe that truth and honesty – whether we like it or not – are far more useful than ideology.
If you wish to contact me, feel free to make a note on my talk page.
My general tendency is to edit a relatively small number of articles, making large and often exhaustively researched edits. My first major project started when I noticed that the article for sarin was short and ugly, which got me deeply entrenched in rewriting nearly all articles relating in any way with chemical warfare, and which resulted in my first featured article. Since then, I have significantly contributed to a number of articles that have gone on to become featured articles.
One of my proudest moments, however, was in drafting the prototypes for the first template standardisation process. My Coffee Roll color scheme was based on my earlier design for WikiProject Beer, and can now be seen in action on talk pages and policy pages just about everywhere.
Below are articles that I contributed more than a modest amount of editing to.

I imagine you already received several of these before, but what the heck, a couple of nice cold CG beers for you, made entirely from natural electrons. Best, Invertzoo (talk) 22:20, 31 July 2009 (UTC)
You are awarded this Barnstar for taking action with the Kwame Kilpatrick threat. There aren't enough of us who will pick up the phone and take responsibility like that. For this, I salute you. Toddst1 (talk) 20:50, 4 June 2008 (UTC)
People like you creating pages like this make Wikipedia a safer, more enjoyable, and much less confusing place to be. Candleguy1994 (talk) 13:40, 4 June 2008 (UTC)
When we asked for a complete and up-to-date list of WikiProjects, no one would have dreamt we'd get something machine-readable! Fully deserved for an utterly invaluable tool. Happy‑melon

For the exceedingly civil manner in which he conducts himself vis-à-vis other users, and in particular for the pains at which he patiently placed himself toward resolving with me a prospective misunderstanding the presence of which is inextricable from online communication, by which were evidenced the amicable and collegial disposition a bit of which all of us would do well to have, ClockworkSoul is to be commended.
