Hello! I'm NinjaRobotPirate, and I'm an administrator and checkuser on English Wikipedia. Basically, that means that I have some additional rights that let me more easily handle vandalism and sock puppetry. Let me know on my talk page if I can help you.
When it comes to Wikipedia, I'm a pragmatic minimalist. Depending on my mood, I alternate between bold rewrites that outrage the owners of articles, policy discussions that seem doomed to endless debates, and simple typo fixes. After initially being quite unimpressed with Wikipedia, I finally joined in 2007. Since 2013, I've taken a more active role, creating and rewriting articles instead of complaining about them. Out of all the articles I've written, Cult film remains the article of which I am most proud. I mainly contribute to biographies and film-related articles, but you can find me editing almost anything, from postmodernism to 1980s death metal.
I believe the best way to avoid bias is to edit articles about which one is apathetic (thus, 1980s death metal). To avoid edit wars, I try to adhere to a voluntary policy of one revert. Remember, Wikipedia is about consensus and making an encyclopedia; it's not about winning. Occasionally we all lose sight of that, but there are more important things in life than debates on Wikipedia. We're all here to make a better encyclopedia, and there is room for everyone.
Well, they're helpful for me. I don't know about you.
