Torsodog trying incredibly hard to look cool

Let's start this page off with a little introduction about myself. I'm a 20-something living in Chicago, Illinois. I was a user on Wikipedia for several months before I actually started editing anything. My very first edit was an absolutely minute internal link edit on Henry VIII (I was watching The Tudors at the time). From there on out I was fascinated with the entire process of editing and creating articles. Since then, I've heavily edited many articles and even created a few of my own. My edits are mainly focused on two locations: Japan and Chicago.

Great work on the Posting system article. I saw a couple of the edits you'd made as I was going to bed, and when I woke up, there was a fully sourced article. Fantastic stuff. Mosmof (talk) 12:37, 31 March 2008 (UTC)
