Suddenly I stopped, unable to breathe. As the image flew overhead, I could see the smooth blue feathers, the arced, pointed wings, and the jet-black head of a peregrine falcon. [...] I had been taken full circle. I was watching a wild peregrine falcon flying freely in a field—outside my own front door.

Old user page

Hello, and welcome to my user page.

I'm Mz7, and I am a volunteer editor at Wikipedia. I made my first edits to Wikipedia in 2008 as an anonymous user. I created an account in March 2010, but I really only started actively editing in late 2011. Most of my work here is behind-the-scenes:

I have three alternative user accounts: User:Mz7 (alt), which I use on non-personal or otherwise insecure computers; User:Mz7 (test account), which I use to see how Wikipedia looks to new users; and User:Mz7 (bot), which I am currently using to update the case table you see at WP:SPI.

Articles I have significantly contributed to:

Wikipedia essays I've written:

Well then, I'll see you around! —Mz7

*opens up visor* Hey there. *removes helmet* Sorry, I need to wear this thick, heavy suit for protection when the vandals start attacking us. Anyways, thanks for your barnstar! I am usually on every day, but today I was particularly driven to stay on as ClueBot NG was down earlier. It's down a lot recently, don't you think? School got in the way, but as soon as I had some Internet access that was fast enough, I was fighting vandalism using Twinkle, Huggle, and STiki. Now that the bot is back up, I can hopefully get out of this suit. *unzips zipper* Anyways, I think I'll repay a barnstar with a barnstar, so here it is! Have a great day! ...now if you can give me a hand with this heavy suit... K6ka (talk | contribs) 21:55, 3 March 2014 (UTC)
