About Me[edit]

Hey all. I don't know why anyone would be interested in reading this, but I thought I might as well write something, instead of just adding a bunch of userboxes (which is much more fun IMO). I'm from the town of Moscow in the absolutely rockin' state of Idaho (and no, where I live does not look like Napoleon Dynamite; we don't live in the eighties up here - that's just in Mormon country down south). Moscow is also the home of the University of Idaho which I currently attend.

Oh, yeah. First off: the name. No, there is no inside story behind it, and yeah, I know it's stupid, but what do you expect from one of those dumb random name generators you find on the internet anyway? Started editing Wikipedia sometime in mid-2005. Will perhaps add more later (but my middle name is Procrastination, so I can't promise anything).

States visited

Countries I would like to visit

What I like to do on Wikipedia[edit]

Though pretty much any topic is fair game for me, I do tend to focus on entertainment subjects, such as video games and films. I am not much of a writer, however, so I'm not much on significantly expanding the prose of a page. I normally focus on making beginning stub pages, and making improvements to what is already there, especially in regard to grammar and general aesthetics. One of my main focuses is adding an infobox and suitable image (poster or video cover) to every film page on Wikipedia. There are some exceptions to this though, as I have contributed significantly to a couple pages, such as Deus Ex.

Pages and stubs I have started[edit]

etc, etc...

Pages I have worked on substantially[edit]

Filmbarnstar.png The WikiProject Films Award
I, Nehrams2020 (talk), hereby award Grandpafootsoldier the WikiProject Films Award for his/her valued contibutions to WikiProject Films. Thank you for your dedication to adding movie posters to many of the film articles on Wikipedia. You help to ensure non-free images meet fair use guidelines, improve the quality of articles, and unfortunately as a result of your hard work, have a clogged-up talk page full of bot notices! Keep up the good work, I appreciate your efforts!
