About me[edit]

Jaguar (June 2013). No I'm not high

I'm 18, an A-level student and am a jack of all trades. My skills on here are copyediting and GAN reviewing. My userboxes to the right explain a bit more on which I can't put into words. You know, a lot of people often brag about what they have done and achieved in their real lives on their userpages, 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 a new account named UKJaguar (I renamed myself to Jaguar in mid 2010) and started editing and creating a lot of Hampshire articles. In 2010-2011 I created every available settlement in Hampshire, Surrey and Sussex.

I am always under the pseudonym of 'Jaguar' on everything on the internet. I used to be Wiki-famous when I was young, I started editing at 13 in 2010 and stopped in 2012 due to disagreements. Today you will find me only taking part in some discussions and checking up on my former glory. 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.

Greatest 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 greatest:

Good articles promoted[edit]

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):

Featured articles promoted[edit]

Notable articles created[edit]

WikiProjects founded[edit]

GA Reviews[edit]

Jaguar's finest moments[edit]

"There is nobody on Wikipedia, and not even a bot, that created 10,000 articles and having 8,250+ of them deleted... thinking about it still angers me, but I tend to cheer myself up a little bit by thinking "Oh my god, I've made history!" - Jaguar, 20th October 2012

"BREAKING NEWS: WIKIPEDIA ARTICLE COUNT GOES NEGATIVE FOR THE FIRST TIME IN ITS HISTORY - ALL THANKS TO USER:JAGUAR AND HIS 8000 ARTICLES DELETED"

Crystal Clear app kdmconfig.png A message of thanks[edit]

  • User:Nunquam Dormio - You were the first ever editor who helped me on my first ever edited article, Bentworth. Thank you.
  • User:Oxenhillshaw - You are the only editor I know who created loads of Hampshire villages that I have never had the chance to. You don't know it, but you got me into editing Wikipedia back in 2010.
  • User:CT Cooper - You deleted a couple of my images but at least you were the first Wikipedian who actually spoke to me. Thanks!
  • User:Waggers - The founder of WikiProject Hampshire. That's that.
  • User:Belovedfreak - You were the first one who welcomed me to Wikipedia and you gave an extremely helpful GA review on Bentworth that deserved more respect. I was new at Wikipedia back then, so I had no idea how anything worked!
  • User:SilkTork - The first Wikipedian I contacted. You gave a great review for Portsmouth and I had no idea how bad I was at editing it!
  • User:HJ Mitchell - For easily granting me Autopatrolled and Reviewer status with no problem at all. Thanks!
  • User:Redrose64 - When I started WikiProject Wiltshire, I had no idea what I was doing. I cannot describe how much you had helped the project when it first started.
  • User:Rodw - Countless contributions on South West England helped me become a better editor.
  • User:Eric Corbett - Copy editing GOD
  • User:Dr. Blofeld - Inspired me to help build, and not finish, the encyclopaedia.
  • User:Lieutenant of Melkor - For creating thousands of Chinese red links - for me! Mwahaha!
  • User:Penyulap - The one and only who helped me through bad times.
  • User:92.6.200.56 - No one will ever know who you are, but you taught me a lot about myself and helped me in that time of need.
  • User:Anna Frodesiak - For helping me in that time of need.
  • User:Tezero - We have so much in common
  • User:Czar - Excellent and impeccable contributions encourage me to do the same

Crystal Clear app kedit.png To do list (in order of priority)[edit]

  1. Build Alton, Hampshire to GA quality Doing...
  2. Build Bentworth to FA quality On hold
  3. Get drunk On hold
  4. Check the whole of Wikipedia to see if everything is 100% complete. X mark.svg Not done
