Hello there, I'm BDD. My earliest edits were in late 2004, but I didn't become very active until 2012. In April 2013, I was fortunate enough to become an administrator, and much of my time since then has been spent on administrative tasks. I used to think the metaphor of the mop was a joke. Yeah, it's not. I really do enjoy being an admin though. Please don't hesitate to let me know if I can help you out.

While there are a few other sites out there where I've used this handle, I'm pretty sure there are some other BDDs out there that aren't me, and I also don't think I've created an account under the name for several years now. My name is unrelated to anything listed on this dab page.

My favorite one-sentence article is Hindoo,[1] and my favorite article that doesn't exist is Esperanto people.

Selected worksEdit

Also, I apparently created the Chimichanga article on the Spanish Wikipedia, though I don't recall doing so, nor was it a very impressive contribution.

  1. ^ Sadly converted to a redirect after AfD, but through the magic of page history, you can still see that one-sentence article in all its glory. I'm really not joking—I thought it was fantastic.
