Quick linksEdit

A few quick links for myself.


Howdy. I am an English Wikipedia administrator. I mostly patrol various VG related articles for vandalism, but also help with sources, rewrites, and adding recent developments where I can. I do a fair amount of gnome-like minor cleanup, and am involved in helping maintain templates and modules for the WP:VG project. I've gotten a few articles to GA and a couple of DYK credits. I often try to get some time in at WP:AIV and WP:RFPP as my time allows. I'm open to being approached directly with reports of vandals, disruptive editors, or pages that need protection.

My username comes from my gaming handle, which I picked many years ago because I had some pet ferrets, which are awesome. Lowercase please, for stylistic purposes :)

I can be contacted on the unofficial Wikimedia Discord server. I will not discuss or debate unblock requests on Discord.

Thanks for helping me with the List of Sonic the Hedgehog video game characters article. (I imagine you saw my request at WP:VG?) I've gotten it semi-protected now, so hopefully it should taken care of. Thanks! Sergecross73 msg me 15:44, 22 February 2012 (UTC)

Because life is better with kitties, on Wikipedia as with the world. (Unless you're allergic to them, in which case... uh, whoops, sorry!)

I'm just now diving into your suggestion to look at the Retro Gamer Magazine issue with the retrospective on the Rogue Squadron series and it is a treasure trove of development info not already included in the Star Wars: Rogue Squadron Featured Article. I'm going to try to neatly incorporate the info into the current article ASAP. Thanks! --TorsodogTalk 01:55, 18 April 2019 (UTC)
