|Leaving the door open for further contribution. Just little things here and there. You could almost call me semi-retired except I'm probably going to be a lot more active than that in a while.|
In case you're wondering about my username... yes, I understand that under the wrong circumstances it can be misconstrued as offensive. It is nothing more than a joke about myself. However, I can assure you that my pessimistic attitude towards myself, although largely done in jest, will not reflect upon my work ethic as an editor, and you will find me pretty easy to get along with. I have WP's best interests at heart, as I am sure you do too. So let's try to get along.
Further, this issue was dealt with on my talk page, so before you take any further action on it, please drop by there for the verdict.
|By the way, I do not appreciate treatment like act as dickishly as I want and to be a bully without fear of being sanctioned, it is also not an opportunity for you to comment on me or my behavior; it goes both ways. I don't care if I'm "asking for it" or "making it too easy" by choosing my name, my name is my name and it's not your plaything. I will report you if you dare cross the line (having only made this rule long after the aforementioned incident I will excuse that particular breach of conduct). Go ahead. Try me. I refuse to be your doormat and you are NOT to use my name in vain to make a point about me or my actions; if you have a bone to pick with me, leave any reference to my name out of it. Further, I will not tolerate from this point onward such treatment of other users. Don't be surprised if I chime in to point it out in a discussion that otherwise did not involve me. This mudslinging has got to stop.. As much as my username is not (and was not chosen for the purpose of being) a free pass to|
My editing style
*In case this wasn't already obvious.
My citation philosophy
Cite on a part-by-part basis. Assume that a citation only supports the part (punctuated by a comma, semicolon or period) on which it appears. If citations appear only at the end of the sentence, assume they support the entire sentence.
My Wikilife so far
My current objectives
My goal - to create or at least significantly assist in making 100 GAs. (FAs/FLs count as GAs for the sake of my goal.)
This is a list of music artists whose articles I wish to improve here on Wikipedia. They are all among my top favorites, with Priestess being the absolute top. If you wish to give me a hand, I would greatly appreciate it. I am collecting resources and information on all of them and may flit between each of them before I consider myself truly done (as in they made it at least to GA). My muse is a chaotic one, I suppose. (List is incomplete as I sort out what I want to do next. Attached to each bullet is a series of directly-related topics; if a related topic does not appear here, check the next section as it may already be at least a GA - only articles not currently GAs at minimum are included here.)
- Priestess (band) • Hello Master • Mikey Heppner
- Scale the Summit • Scale the Summit discography • Chris Letchford
- Earthless • Earthless discography
Not that any man should boast, but consider this more of a wikirésumé ;)
These are articles I either created or adopted very early on in their development. Other articles with which I have merely assisted do not count.
None yet; check back soon!
These would be all the articles that used to be listed in the section just above; of course, the distinction is that these listed here are now Featured rather than merely Good. Alternatively, these include lists that I either created or adopted very early in their development, and helped escort to FL status.
These articles are also on my watchlist. Have a question about any of them? Just leave a post on the proper Talk page and I'll be right with you.
I'm here, there and everywhere, but here's some recognition I've gotten for my work:
A donut for you

|Thank you so much for the wording on Megadeth, you're a really cool guy. Definitely one of the few Wikipedians who puts great amount of work in articles that aren't his preferences. Вик Ретлхед (talk) 14:34, 15 April 2014 (UTC)|

|Great work on getting Megadeth to FA status. This is the first heavy metal-related article to be promoted in five years. This accomplishment wouldn't have been possible without your assistance. Retrohead (talk) 08:44, 10 August 2014 (UTC)|
