In architecture, a bracket is a structural or decorative member that attaches a smaller object to a larger one. It projects from a wall, usually to carry weight and sometimes to strengthen an angle. Corbels and consoles are types of brackets. This picture shows a classical decorative bracket, attaching the base of a balcony to the walls of the chapel at Greenwich Hospital, London. The plasterwork was created by hand in situ by the eminent stuccoist John Papworth.

Greenwich Hospital (originally the Royal Hospital for Seamen) was founded in 1694 to provide a home for retired seamen of the Royal Navy, support for their widows and education for their children. Designed by Sir Christopher Wren, the chapel was not completed until 1742. The present chapel dates from 1779 to 1789, having been rebuilt to a design by James Stuart following a devastating fire that gutted the previous structure. The buildings of the hospital were later used by the Royal Naval College and the University of Greenwich, and are now known as the Old Royal Naval College, a World Heritage Site.Photograph credit: Daniel Case

Welcome New Editors! Please feel free to ask any questions on my talk pageEdit

Speaking about the Teahouse at the Bay Area WikiSalon, December 21, 2016

Wikipedia can be a tricky place for beginners. I am happy to be of assistance. You may also find Wikipedia:A Primer for newcomers to be a useful introduction to editing. Another great place to get help with editing is the Teahouse, where I am an active host.

Call me Cullen, or call me JimEdit

Cullen328, also known as Jim Heaphy

My real name is Jim Heaphy. I have been contributing to Wikipedia since June 28, 2009. I became an administrator on July 23, 2017. I am committed to the principles of Wikipedia, including the neutral point of view, and try to improve articles in areas where I have some expertise or interest. I always appreciate constructive criticism.

As a child, I spent many pleasurable hours browsing the World Book Encyclopedia but never imagined back then that I would be an encyclopedia editor myself one day. Despite its problems in some areas, I truly think that Wikipedia is the greatest thing since sliced bread, and am proud to make my own small contributions to this worthy project.

I was born and raised in the Detroit, Michigan area and will always consider Detroit my home town. However, I have spent over 2/3 of my life in California, and am now thoroughly a Californian.

I worked myself through college slowly. I attended City College of San Francisco and San Francisco State University. I graduated from the University of San Francisco with a Bachelor of Science degree in 1982. My major was Human Relations and Organizational Behavior.

I now live in the wonderful city of American Canyon, California, at the southern end of the Napa Valley. I am 67 years old, and am a married male with two adult sons and a wonderful granddaughter. I have been self employed as a small business owner in the construction industry for 26 years, and have been an occasional freelance writer and public speaker for decades.

My interestsEdit

I have a lot of interests, among which are American history, Abraham Lincoln, California, the history of mountaineering, the Sierra Nevada, Mount Shasta, the Arts and Crafts movement, Native American artists, San Francisco, wine, cooking, plein air landscape painting, photography, Harley-Davidson motorcycles, antique and classic cars, the history of Michigan, and Judaism. I am fascinated with American politics but try to keep it a small part of my editing. I am a book lover, and enjoy fact checking and adding useful references to existing articles, as well as writing new articles on notable subjects that interest me. Please let me know if signs of bias creep into anything I write.

I strive to be fair in my editing and broad about the kind of articles I work on. I am a Democrat, but wrote an article I'm very proud of about a Republican I admired, Norman Livermore. I am a Jew, but wrote an article about a Hindu religious festival, Kalpataru Day and a Russian Orthodox church, Holy Virgin Cathedral. I am an American, but have expanded articles about people from all over the world.

Disclosure of potential conflicts of interestEdit

When editing on Wikipedia, I always strive to make improving the encyclopedia my highest priority. I edit most often in areas I care about, but I also edit in areas I've learned about and become interested in through Wikipedia, especially in Articles for Deletion (AfD) debates.

I have been a member of the Sierra Club since 1976, and many of my early contributions to Wikipedia have to do with notable people and places associated with the Sierra Club and the mountains of California in some way. I am disclosing my club membership, but also want to state that I am not now nor have ever been an officer or employee of the club, and my contributions are my own, and not coordinated with anyone else. Over the years, I have become a generalist editor, and no longer focus in that specific area, although I still care very much about those topics.

I am self-employed in the construction industry, and provide a very specialized service on a freelance basis. My small business specializes in repair and maintenance of Solid surface and Granite countertops. I've done relatively little editing in these areas, with the exception of one related article I wrote, Oxide jacking. I discussed this article with other experienced editors, to be sure that I was on the right track.

I will always disclose and freely discuss any potential conflict of interest. I pledge that adherence to Wikipedia's Five Pillars and all applicable Wikipedia policies and guidelines will always come first for me as an editor.

User:ChesPal and User:AmCanDaveEdit

My wife Debra and I at the Wikimedia Foundation offices in San Francisco in 2006 with our Boston Terrier, Dexter (2007-2019)

My wife edits Wikipedia under the username ChesPal, though she isn't as active as I am. She had an idea for her first article, she and I worked on it together, and developed it at the San Francisco WikiWomen's Edit-a-Thon. The article is Amish dolls. She has also written a second article, Shawnee Pottery, and has done a great job expanding existing articles William B. Ide Adobe State Historic Park and Lion Brand, with a bit of assistance from me.

My son David has begun editing Wikipedia, under the account AmCanDave. He has made some edits to Arlen Ness, with my assistance and guidance, as he has learning disabilities. He would like to do more editing, based on his own research and interests. I will assist him with Wiki markup, but his contributions are his own.

Antidote to dramaEdit

I like this perceptive essay on problematic Wikipedia editors, Observations on Wikipedia behavior, and recommend it to anyone who is interested.

I have also done significant copy editing at Hotel Polen fire. Although I did little direct editing, I provided recommendations on the talk page, and ongoing advice to the most active editor at Gun show loophole.

My record in Articles for Deletion debatesEdit

As of June 10, 2013, I have participated in 1528 Articles for deletion debates. I used SW's AfD Statistics Tool to analyze my participation in the 250 most recent deletion debates as of that date. Of the debates where there was a clear consensus, I was with the consensus 88.5% of the time. I recommended "Keep" 44.4% of the time, "Delete" 46.6% of the time, "Merge" 0.4% of the time and "Redirect" 8.5% of the time. I make a sincere effort to reflect Wikipedia's policies, guidelines and established consensus in my participation in Articles for Deletion debates.
