The user R4ge has held an active Wikipedian user account since the 13th of July in the year 2006. While in fact having been active on Wikipedia long before, R4ge encountered difficulties while attempting to create an account. Originally stumbling upon Wikipedia while attempting to source for information with regards to obscure world affairs, R4ge has since become hooked onto Wikipedia and spends most of his free time attempting to enrich his general knowledge by browsing through the mountains of articles and user pages.

R4ge also uses other nicknames such as ra[g]e and Deathwish on certain other forums frequented by him. While the self-professed misanthropist is predominantly anti-social and introverted, R4ge is also aggressive and egregious as his nick suggests, never hesitating to argue or enter a flame war when challenged. R4ge is also quite the perfectionist, often nitpicking at the small little imperfections around Wikipedia articles. The extent to which R4ge actually nitpicks around the small details borders on obessive-compulsive behaviour. R4ge secretly has a dark personality and hopes for more war and anarchy to ease his boredom.

:( This user provides information using userboxes because he or she is bored.

R4ge is rumoured to have a D.O.B. somewhere around the mid-1980s, however, witness sightings have put it nearer to the late 1970s. Other rumours include sightings of R4ge adopting unorthodox dressing, often slouching, as well as owning multiple media platforms. There have also been several reports of witnesses having spotted R4ge with a stutter inside a smoky hall, contrary to the proclamation that he does not smoke. It is good to note that according to the hit drama series Criminal Minds, speaking in such a third person perspective indicates a narcissistic personality.

R4ge has actually went through great pains to make this page fit nicely into the Mozilla Firefox browser. R4ge has dumped the Internet Explorer browser due to the fact that many websites use IE specific vulnerabilities to show annoying popups. R4ge also feels that tabbed browsing is the way to go, and with adherence to the W3C rules as well as a cleaner display, Mozilla Firefox has everything that IE does not and much more. [1]

Contrary to popular belief, Singaporeans are educated at schools where English is taught as the first language. Due to the multi-racial nature of the Singaporean society, English has fast become the modus operandi for most of the population when it comes to school or work. With a modern education system, coupled with an extremely competitive learning environment, Singaporean students have regularly excelled at international educational evaluations. [2]

Extent of the world-wide propogation of the English language

R4ge is not too different from a typical Singaporean netizen. Having been brought up in an English speaking household, R4ge is pretty proficient in the language, as compared to his weaker Mother Tongue, which he absolutely despises and hates. R4ge had been consistently failing his Mother Tongue examinations, and indeed there was a huge amount of euphoria at the end of his final Mother Tongue test.

As like most Singaporeans, R4ge has some knowledge of Singlish as well. The use of this colloquial language has been greatly frowned upon by the government as it is generally incomprehensible when it comes to the international community, thus hampering Singapore's quest to be a globalized city-state. [3] [4] However it is R4ge's opinion that while Singlish taints and impedes the learning of the English language, it should not be entirely forgotten as it is the one thing which identifies Singapore, perhaps it could be considered as the beginnings of Singaporean culture. [5]

Lastly is R4ge's limited knowledge of a certain Chinese dialect. Used mainly by the older generation as well as the uneducated, R4ge picked up the language by listening to his parents communicating with older folk. The dialect in question would be Hokkien, however, it is good to know that R4ge hardly uses it and would probably have some trouble with its simple usage.

Educational Experiences[edit]

Early Education[edit]

R4ge spent the earlier years of elementary school and kindergarten at schools which were located near home. At such a stage, whatever school R4ge had went to would not have made much of a difference as the learning level was too low. R4ge spent a total of 8 years of life at this stage of education, with its end marking the start of a great rise in academics and drop in physical fitness.

Victoria School & Victoria Junior College[edit]

The most important time of one's life, during the adolescent years, when one's personality and character are nutured and shaped for the future. R4ge spent that period of life in two marvelous learning institutions, greatly growing in character development and critical thinking processes.

Although making several bad decisions during the course of high school and college, R4ge nonetheless managed to survive, leaving behind many learning milestones and achievements. While everything most probably turned out okay in the end, after everything is said and done, R4ge would ponder for eternity whether the natural choice of choosing his high school's affiliated college, VJC, was the correct one.

After 6 long years, R4ge would subsequently move on to the National University of Singapore. R4ge is currently studying at its Faculty of Law.

National University of Singapore[edit]

R4ge is currently an undergraduate studying at the Faculty of Law at the National University of Singapore.

With the faculty recently moving away from the main campus, R4ge hopes to enjoy the use of the new facilities and prime location, with Singapore's shopping district just a stone's throw away.

R4ge hopes to make the most out of his time at NUS, preferably raking in some nice grades and getting some constructive achievements down which could be looked back upon in the future.

Orgy of Userboxes[edit]

R4ge is someone who gets bored very easily, hence the fascination with userboxes. R4ge has spent countless hours browsing through the user pages of Wikipedians in an effort to create a comprehensive set of userboxes for this page.
