A little about me
I am a young man in his early 20's with a primary interest in computers and video games, engaged to a beautiful bride and owner of my own company. I live in the Netherlands, though my work takes me all through Europe and the USA.

I like sharing information, and getting to know more about the little things in life. Whenever I surf around Wikipedia, I come upon the most diverse articles. Sharing information is exactly what I like to do here on Wikipedia as well. Whether it is information I have a big interest in, and knowledge of, or something new I came across the other day. I also like fixing up articles, whether it are small things like wrong links, or giving the article a make-over.

Every now and then, I come across a person who I think is nice, crazy, silly, cool, intelligent or anything else positive. For those people, to honour people who are different in a positive way, I've created the JackSparrow Ninja's Cool Cookie Award.

My view on certain Wikipedian issues[edit]

Source reliability[edit]

Webcomic notability guidelines[edit]

Correct translation of BS Zelda: Kodai no Sekiban[edit]

In the end it means the same, and in the end, Nintendo goes for what sounds best. If you would literally translate the Japanese title of Majora's Mask, you would get Mask of Majora. The Minish Cap -> The Hat of Mystery. Tingle blabla -> The Freshly Picked Rose Coloured Rupee Land of Tingle. Yet, that is not how English works. Ancient Stone Tablets is the generally accepted name and in all this is the best translation.

The use of Alexa to determine notability[edit]

In some notability discussions, Alexa.com -who provide information on the web traffic to other websites- is mentioned to determine notability. While it could be used to determine if a source is notable, it doesn't work the other way. As a professional web designer, I know very well that the service is far from perfect and it can't be used to tag something non-notable.

Questions to investigate[edit]

If a pain has become worse, shouldn't it technically hurt less?
