"Well I, I just want to see the light
And I, I don't want to lose my sight
Well I, I just want to see the light
And I need to know what's worth the fight" Green Day
Hello, I´m a
Brazilian university student with a lot of free time and a will to learn things - mostly by reading or being online until I feel bad about it. One day,I was searching in Google for Sonic the Hedgehog,and I´ve found Wikipedia´s page. I liked it - but my first edits were on the Portuguese Wiki. Since the mess there is worse than here, I stopped editing there for a while - and nowadays the edits are more numerous on EN Wiki (EN: over 11,000, PT: over 7,200) even if a few were unlogged. The number might not be be too big, but my edits fit " quality over quantity" - sometimes I create whole sections, add images, etc in just one edit. (you don't want to see many tabs end up open) The articles edited by me might not be high culture or vital articles, but at least I'm doing my best to make the internet not suck.

Turning the Metroid series into a Good Topic - both
GT nomination and extensive work:
Metroid Prime, which wasn't a big deal before my first edit. Editing it at least 73 times, creating whole sections, reworking info already there. Doing all the path to improve - Wikiproject assessment, GA nomination and pass, Peer review, one, no, two failed FACs. And then not being bold enough to re-re-renominate (was waiting some time to do it), and being surpassed by someone, and not being informed on candidacy being closed. But despite this final bureaucracy... turning Metroid Prime into a Featured Article! Turning the rest of the Prime trilogy into FAs as well, though not as the primary editor - that honor is from
User:Gary King. 24 edits on Metroid Prime 2: Echoes ( some really crucial, and also fixing of the GAN requests and most of the FAC ones); Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, only 9... but doing " reception", requesting a WP:VG assessment and the first GA nomination must be enough. And while we're in the Trilogy, helped
Metroid Prime: Trilogy become a Good Article. Improved
List of Metroid media from " simple (and rehashed) game list" to " Featured list". Upgrading
Metroid: Other M to GA status... despite the fact that I don't even own a Wii. Helping a lot with
Metroid Fusion and Metroid (video game). Minor work:
Metroid II: Return of Samus  , Metroid: Zero Mission, , Metroid Prime Hunters,   and Metroid Prime Pinball.   Not game-related: many things in
Samus Aran, most crucial being GA and GAR requests.
He always runs while others walk...
Editing pages about this womanizing fictional Brit somehow even made people
interested in interviewing me.
Taking the well-crafted
The World Is Not Enough (song), nominating for the GA, doing all requested in the review in order to pass, and when I wasn't bold enough to nom for the FA, fixed most of the FAC requests. And the article is now featured. Turning
You Know My Name from this to a GA. With help of
my Bond collection (QoS and Skyfall have since been added), turning the James Bond films into a Good Topic:
Improving/nominating for the GA
Thunderball (film), Diamonds Are Forever (film), You Only Live Twice (film), Live and Let Die (film) Expanding many sections (mostly Production) in
From Russia with Love (film), GoldenEye, and Tomorrow Never Dies Overcame the awfulness of
Moonraker (film) to replace dead links and expand/clean where needed Adding/replacing refs in
The Spy Who Loved Me (film) Ever since
User:Schrodinger's cat is alive decided to push Dr. No (film) back to Good status, helping him on making the 007 Good Topic possible: after Dr. No, restoring Goldfinger (film) to the GA, and then improving On Her Majesty's Secret Service (film), The Man with the Golden Gun (film), For Your Eyes Only (film), Licence to Kill and (despite only seeing it later) Never Say Never Again (plus minor work in Casino Royale (Climax!), just in case someone asks for it...)
Nominated for GA after some edits, helped with the GA review stuff and later on:
Helped pass the GA review:
Games, television and such
Did a "drive-by nomination" of
Frank Lapidus With help from my collection, improved
Walkabout (Lost), Dave (Lost), Man of Science, Man of Faith, Adrift (Lost), The 23rd Psalm, I Do (Lost), Every Man for Himself (Lost), The Cost of Living (Lost) Helped pass:
Because You Left (despite a trivial and petty dispute), Tricia Tanaka Is Dead, Tabula Rasa (Lost)
While my biggest contribution was
getting an editor to the TXF project, had a hand in building this huge list:
Drive-by nominations following some edits, then helping pass the GA process:
