I am Nicholas (Nick, for short), better know as my username, MrScorch6200. I have used Wikipedia for years, but never bothered to create an account. Being here around half a year, I love the community and the atmosphere here as all dedicated Wikipedia editors are determined, hard-working people taking time out of their day to contribute to the largest encyclopedia in the world. I am hoping to stick around in the near and far future.
During school, I plan on getting onto Wikipedia in the after-school, and I don't want to be distracted from Wikipedia with homework! (Yes, I said distracted from Wikipedia). Some of the pages that I like to edit are my favorite TV shows and video games. However, sometimes you'll find me skimming through random articles for grammatical errors and false information. I am always triple checking my edits, so again, if I screw up let me know on the article's talk page and/or mine.
I gained an interest in patrolling newly created pages a few months ago and tagging them for issues and deletion (and sometimes helping them to not be deleted). It is really amusing to me what some editors try to pass off as encyclopedic content. I don't go through all of the listed pages, however, I look for article titles and author names suggesting that the article has major problems or has a conflict of interest. Most of these are articles are about Indian companies self-promoting themselves or just blatant vandalism and hoaxes. Saying that, I would like to thank RHaworth and many other admins for their teamwork in swiftly deleting nonsense pages that I and other have tagged.
I am also trying to get new editors to read Wikipedia policy on creating articles so that we don't have nonsense articles added to the encyclopedia.
If you ever disagree with my deletion tags, please remove it and discuss it with me. Just remember to not delete CSD tags from pages that you have created yourself. That is probably the one thing that I have issued the most warnings for on user pages. Contest the speedy deletion on the article's talk page ASAP before the article is deleted.
I am a regular volunteer at the Dispute Resolution Noticeboard. I like to help with less complex disputes, in order to efficiently help the distressed editors. I will usually open a discussion without saying much first, in order to see how the editors act and respond to each other so I can respond to them in a partially informal, friendly matter.
I will be the DR/N Co-ordinator for August-September 2014.
I currently adopted two users. My adoption HQ for them is here.

|Some friendly editors that I've met|
These editors are friendly editors that I've met across Wikipedia whom I like and appreciate what they've done (from fighting vandalism to other various tasks) for the encyclopedia. Most of these editors have helped me substantially or have collaborated with me in part or in teamwork tackling issues such as problematic edits and users.
