User:John from Idegon

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Idegon is my made up name for the Ontario, Oregon micropolitan area, an area in Eastern Oregon and Western Idaho, not quite in the Boise metropolitan area, and politically and philosophically as far away from Portland as you can possibly get.

In October of 2013, I changed my name from Gtwfan52 to John from Idegon. Although the Gtwfan52 name had served me well for nearly two years, I feel that as long as I am going to continue doing this, I should have a proper name for people to address me by. I've been answering to John for a long while IRL, so why not here too? By the way, "Gtwfan" referenced one of my two all time favorite railroads, the Grand Trunk Western. The other is the South Shore.

Work faster with keyboard shortcuts

Wikipedia has keystroke combinations that can speed up your work, like Shift+Alt+F to "focus" on (jump to) the search box, Shift+Alt+M to move the current page and its talk page, Shift+Alt+T to open the current article's talk page, Shift+Alt+Y to open a list of your user's contributions, and many more. Those are for Windows users. On the Mac OS, press Control instead of Shift+Alt.
