Hello, I'm George! I'm a semi-active Wikipedian generally contributing by reverting vandalism or adding to articles which I am experienced in the subject of. I can read, write and speak both English and German fluently. If you have any questions, ask me on my talk page.
I am a software and web developer. I've worked on many MediaWiki wikis over the past few years, my most recent being one I've done the most development for. That wiki network can be found at http://www.brickimedia.org.
If you are curious, I am a 17-year-old human.
I used to contribute to many wikis on Wikia, primarily on wikis such as Brickipedia, where I still held adminship until a mass-removal of admins by Wikia staff. Brickipedia has moved to Brickimedia, and my user page can be found . I'm a large LEGO fan, along with several other things including Doctor Who, Team Fortress 2, and various rock bands.
I was born in Fredericksburg, Virginia at Mary Washington Hospital in the year 1997. Along with two older twin brothers, I have resided there up till present day. I attended Fredericksburg City Public Schools until the seventh grade. For the eighth grade, I was moved to a boarding school in Keswick, Virginia, soon to find that it wasn't a very pleasant place and later withdrawed from that school. For my ninth grade, I returned home to attend Stafford Senior High School. While attending Stafford High School, I have found most interest in business-oriented classes, such as Programming, Multimedia Design, and Law. I left Stafford High School during my junior year to get a GED and go to college early. I now attend Germanna Community College.
As a kid, and even now, I have a strong passion for LEGO products. Since I first began building with LEGO, I have felt that the infinite creativity and potential that those tiny bricks hold is amazing. I enjoy building custom LEGO creations, and partaking in the LEGO community both online, and in real life at fan conventions.
By 2012, I began using wiki sites hosted on Wikia, while managing two wikis of my own, both involving LEGO themes. They were both very successful, though due to server issues they were taken offline, and were never put back up due to lack of time. On Wikia, I joined communities such as Brickipedia, where I could share my knowledge and passion for LEGO products with others of my age group. I made many friends there, made many great contributions, and managed to work my way up to getting a successful Request for Adminship. Brickipedia had been in the midst of developing and moving to a new host--Brickimedia--which would be free of Wikia's restrictions. My work at Brickimedia has strengthened my knowledge of PHP and other languages, and has gotten me in a more-involved place in the LEGO community. Unfortunately due to Wikia's dislike for a community to move off Wikia, they assumed I was the driving force behind the move off Wikia, and have thus been globally blocked from Wikia's services.
Outside of LEGO and wikis, I have interest in various other things. I used to ride horses, and play baseball and basketball. I like to play PC games such as Team Fortress 2 and Minecraft. I follow various TV series, but the one I consider myself most to be a fan of is Doctor Who.

|The Anti-Vandalism Barnstar|
|Well, seeing that today's your first day using Huggle, I see that you've done a much better job of mastering it, compared to MY first day with Huggle (I remember being so confused by the controls that I reverted only one edit... but now I use that program like a pro!). Since I ran into you a couple of times, and seeing that you don't appear to have a barnstar yet (have you archived your talk page?), I think I'll give you a barnstar! Twinkle, STiki, and popups can also assist in anti-vandalism efforts, but I guess I shouldn't overwhelm you with suggestions. Oops. K6ka (talk | contribs) 02:03, 20 February 2014 (UTC)|
