Me, watching for vandals.

“Treat those who are good with goodness, and also treat those who are not good with goodness. Thus goodness is attained. Be honest to those who are honest, and be also honest to those who are not honest. Thus honesty is attained.”

Welcome to the user page of Altaïr, self-proclaimed professional Wikipedian watchdog (bird, actually), sadist, vandal-slayer and pseudo-intellectual.

About me

Personal info

Well, what is there to know about me? No actually, the real question would be, what do you want to know about me? I am just a lonesome dude that tries to do his best on Wikipedia. Sometimes, failing miserably. I am a teenager but I have no friends, so I spend almost all my time on the internet, as I have no social life or social skills at all, and I only have my immediate family to talk to in daily life. I enjoy being alone, but I do get a little lonely sometimes, and not a single day goes by where I don't wish my circumstances were different, and that I had friends/interpersonal relationships.

Because of all this the internet and video games became my friends. My username comes from a character in the video game series Assassin's Creed, Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad (Arabic: الطائر بن لا أحد‎, meaning "The Bird Son of no one"). I have severe ADD without hyperactivity, and I believe that it's one of the major reasons I do very poor socially (with my peers at least) and academically. I am not religious (I am an atheist), and I don't believe in anything supernatural; I still identify (to a certain degree) with some Taoist teachings, sayings and writings in the philosophical sense, because I find that it speaks to my solitary lifestyle, and that it has an immense wisdom unlike any modern or ancient school of thought that I have heard of. It also helped me defeat a creeping, unwelcome existential nihilism, which came a result of my very materialistic way of viewing, interpreting and understanding the world and universe.

On Wikipedia

I generally enjoy reading, writing, music, language, and many other things like that, and I use Wikipedia every single day, and have for years. I've had this account for a long time as well. Most of what I do on the project is fixing grammar, spelling, and wikicode, and anti-vandalism.

I am also a rollbacker and reviewer. Even though I have learned a lot over the years during my time here, do not hesitate to call me out if you think I did something wrong or made a mistake. I would really appreciate it if you did.

As I said, I have no friends, so I hope we can be :)

Now you know all there is to know about me, I think. You can look at those userboxes to the right for more useless information if you wish.

Inspired by/favorite writers (not in order)

This is a list of my favorite writers and of those who inspire me most in life. I especially admire the Enlightenment writers Thomas Paine and Voltaire, and late journalist and author Christopher Hitchens, but see the list, if you want to, for some of my favorite I have read. The list is not in order.
