hi, i'm apollo (this is a nickname). i've been on Wikipedia for 6 years. when i'm not editing some wiki or another, i often find myself playing synthpop music and Kingdom of Loathing (usually not simultaneously).
you may have noticed, by now, that i do not tend to capitalize letters according to normal grammatical convention. normally, in the talk namespaces, i don't capitalize the start of a sentence or the pronoun "i" for personal reasons and sometimes i also neglect to capitalize proper nouns. i'll often abandon this convention in more serious settings, but that's not a hard rule. if it particularly bothers you for any reason, just let me know. some other quick features of my use of the english language include: a) i am comfortable using the singular they; b) i use the serial comma; c) i almost always use European date formats (except in US articles, naturally).
when i'm not editing Wikipedia, i like to read, translate songs (and other things) into Latin, idly play accordion, autoharp, ukulele, melodica, et al., and think about wikiing. i also hang around This Might Be a Wiki (which i moderate) and Discogs.
stuff i do on Wikipedia
a lot of the articles i've written are about They Might Be Giants. i'm branching out to other music-related topics and hopefully other things, too. here's a sample of my "work":
i have a pretty fair knowledge of HTML, CSS, and MediaWiki parser functions. but, i don't do a lot with templates on Wikipedia.
here's some other info about me: contribs ·
if i've done something wrong, let me know. i respond fairly promptly to messages.
