Crystal Clear app personal.png About me[edit]

I'm 18, who completed my A-Levels in Media Studies and Business in May 2014 and left college the following month. My skills on here are copyediting and the GA process. The userboxes to the right explain a bit more on which I can't put into words. You know, I feel like often a lot of people brag about what they have done and achieved in their real lives, but I'm just a normal guy you see... I'm nothing special.

My first ever edit on Wikipedia was this edit in April 2008 as an IP. I then made this account in 2009 (I renamed myself to Jaguar in June 2010) and started editing and creating a lot of Hampshire articles. In 2010-2011 I created every available settlement in Hampshire, Surrey and Sussex. At one point I created 10,000 articles meaning that I was responsible for making Wikipedia's article count go down for the first and so far only time in its history (see below). It's not something I'm proud of, but you have to make the most out of dire situations. Other than that small downside which led to my year and a half retirement, I created a few WikiProjects along the way as well as bringing a few articles up to GA.

I am always under the pseudonym of 'Jaguar' on everything on the internet. I used to be well known here when I was young; I started editing at 13 in 2010 and stopped in 2012 due to disagreements. For the second half of 2012 and the whole of 2013 I went AWOL, but returned in December 2013.

Crystal Clear Icons Apps File-manager.png Notable contributions[edit]

Here is a list of my best work on Wikipedia. Over the course of my editing career I think that these contributions are my most notable:

I have contributed to a lot more Good Articles than these, but these are the only ones I have wholly got to GA (either by myself or with help of good people):

Much appreciate what you did. And it goes to show how many editors watching Kubrick have also become annoyed with his vendetta. ♦ Dr. Blofeld 16:39, 18 November 2014 (UTC)
