AboutEdit

I'm Vanilla Wizard, but you can call me Vanilla if you want to 🙂

I joined Wikipedia in 2016 and got addicted to editing some time around 2018. I was originally User:BrendonTheWizard, but now I'm not. I'm a college student studying Computer Science and I'm interested in hurricanes, geography, the humanities, and vexillology. I do on-and-off work at WP:WPLR and maintain portals relating to states with limited recognition. I sporadically switch between focusing on articles, portals, WP:ITN/C, pending changes, RFCs, and other corners of the encyclopedia. Most of what I've learned on Wikipedia I've learned by making mistakes, and I've made a lot of mistakes over the years. Please know that I don't do so with bad intentions.

ThanksEdit

  2. Multiple paragraphs effectively detailing the symbolism
  3. A section dedicated to the history of the existing design
  4. Official colour scheme and construction (when possible)
