Note: The sarcastic template above does not mean that I am completely opposed to tags, as there are numerous cases where they are wholly reasonable, but rather I think it is better to fix problems yourself when possible, especially for easier solutions, and to try to add as few tags as possible, rather than just throwing 10 of them out there

Hello fellow Wikipedia editors, I am SkyGazer 512. I have no particular reason for choosing that title - the usernames I choose for wikis typically do not matter a whole lot to me. I created this account on January 17, 2018, and have been mostly active or semi-active ever since.

In addition to editing Wikipedia, I have also made thousands of edits to Gamepedia (My username is Madminecrafter12). In particular, I'm an administrator and bureaucrat on the Minecraft Wiki. I'm also admin on the Gamepedia Help Wiki and the Terraria Wiki. In addition, I'm a member of GRASP on Gamepedia, which essentially means I have part of the admin toolset on all wikis so that I can fight vandalism more effectively globally.

I don't edit my user page too often, so some of the info here may be slightly outdated.

If you have any kind of question, concern, comment, or just want to talk, feel free to leave me a message on my talk page!

What I doEdit

vn-15This user page has been vandalized 15 times.



vn-46This user talk page has been vandalized 46 times.

I generally enjoy somewhat of a mix of content work (article creating, expanding, copy-editing, etc.) and maintenance work (vandalism fighting, answering questions at the Help Desk and Teahouse, responding to edit requests, etc.). I am always happy to help users out with things, so feel absolutely free to leave me a message on my talk page if you have any questions. I'm decent at wiki-coding (although I always get lost at #var and #vardefine) so I probably could design a userbox for you if you'd like me to.

I am on the Wikimedia and New Page Patrol Discord servers. My username is "A person somewhere" and my nickname on both of these servers is "SkyGazer 512," same as my Wikipedia username.

My very simple RfA criterion.

Other accounts and IPsEdit

  • Years and years ago, probably roughly 10 years ago, I made one or two edits from my IP address
  • In 2015, I registered the Animal19672004. After I stopped using it, I eventually forgot the password, and later forgot the username as well, but was able to trace down the account by remembering one of the pages it had created. As you can clearly see, the account was never blocked.
  • Shortly before creating this account, I made a few copy-edits from my IP address

I am not currently using any other accounts or IP addresses when editing. Therefore, if you see an an account with a name that claims to be mine and has been editing but is not listed on my userpage, it is extremely unlikely to be me, so blocking first and asking questions later would be fine with me in such a case.

Content workEdit

User:SkyGazer 512/Content work shows my significant content contributions to the wiki – pages I've created, expanded, etc.
