|I am currently (mostly) away from Wikipedia while I focus on other projects.|
If you need help with a rename, please see Wikipedia:Changing username for information on the rename process.
My Wikipedia activities
I made the jump from "Wikipedia reader" to "Wikipedia editor" in March of 2006 when I saw a bit of vandalism and hit the edit button to fix it. Later that year I registered an account and wrote my first article.
I became an administrator in 2011, a bureaucrat in 2012 and a global renamer in 2014. If you need an account rename, I can help you out, although your best bet is to make a request at Wikipedia:Changing username, since it is available 24 hours a day and I am not.
For a while I ran a bot that did various cleanup and maintenance tasks, but it is no longer active. I have a tiny bit of experience with Lua coding (I've written a small module to format my list of favorite article creations and expansions) and hope to write more modules in the future.
In 2011 I wrote Move Like This, my first article to successfully complete the good article process. There are a few other articles I would love to promote to GA status sometime when time allows. I've also uploaded a few dozen images to Wikipedia and to Wikimedia Commons.
One of my areas of interest is expanding our music coverage. You can help too! There are plenty of notable songs that need articles.
In real life
I am a software developer and retro game enthusiast; the Atari 2600 platform is a favorite of mine. I even wrote a game for the platform myself a few years ago. As a regular reader and big fan of The A.V. Club, seeing them say nice things about my game was a dream come true.
If you see any notable games that have red links in the List of Atari 2600 games, why not help out by creating an article for them? If they already have an article, you can help by expanding and improving them. Wikipedia:WikiProject Video games/Sources offers some good suggestions for digging up reliable sources.
If you think I've made an error in editing or adminning, please let me know! It's quite possible you're right. Or if you just want to say "hello," that's OK too. Just talk page. I do not use any of the "real-time" Wikipedia platforms such as IRC, but I am available by email if you would prefer to contact me privately.
