Hello, I'm benlisquare, a Wikipedia contributor since 2005 from Australia. I am active on both the English and Chinese Wikipedia projects. Welcome to my page.

During the daytime, I am a software engineer specialising in Oracle-based enterprise solutions, while I am an equities trader in the evenings. My hobbies include musical performance, videogames, weightlifting, and performance cars.

I first started contributing to Wikipedia as a young teenager, and during the decade and a half since then, I have been experimenting with various different political positions while trying to find my own personal identity; because of this, you can definitely find contradictions in the way I behaved on Wikipedia depending on the date it occurred. In the past, I have flipflopped between far-left authoritarianism, unapologetic Sinophilia, far-right conservatism, pro-market moderate-right libertarianism, unapologetic Ameriphilia, and centre-right liberalism. Today I identify as a centrist with left-leaning sentiments towards social equity and fiscal policy, right-leaning sentiments towards immigration and national defence, strong attitudes towards the preservation of civil liberties, and a healthy dose of Sinoskepticism.

I am an occasional contributor to Touhou Wiki, and I was previously a sysop on both KanColle Wikia and KanColle Wiki, however have ceased that role due to inactivity. I am a volunteer supertester for World of Warships, and I translate doujinshi from Japanese into English for fun (open to commission suggestions).

Contrary to rumours spread between 2010 and 2014, I have never been part of 4chan staff.

Barnstars
Urumqi partial panorama at dusk.JPG The Ürümqi Barn"star"
Thanks for all your work maintaining the article July 2009 Ürümqi riots during its time on the main page. This has been a difficult and thankless task, working at a frenetic pace for 4 days straight so far (I, for one, have been getting very little sleep), and it's only been thanks to coordinated efforts and discussion from numerous editors that the article has been kept as neutral and informative as possible. This is the most collaboration I've done, with the largest number of editors once, since I have joined Wikipedia, and I think the results are showing; while it's not perfect, when my friends and family ask me about what's going on in Urumqi, I have been more comfortable recommending this article than any other source. The work is far from over, but now that this article is off the main page I think it's finally time to thank the editors Seb az86556, Colipon, Jim101, Ohconfucius, Benlisquare, Simonm223, and Jinhuili for all their contributions; while we had disagreements, I think each of these editors has been particularly active and has made real efforts to improve the article.rʨanaɢ talk/contribs 20:07, 9 July 2009 (UTC)
