About Serge

Hello everyone, I'm Serge, and I'm an Admin here on the English Wikipedia. Feel free to leave me a message on my talk page if there's anything you'd like to discuss with me.

  • On the Admin side, I'd be happy to at least hear you out with your various questions/issues/requests. If I can help you, I will, and even if I can't, I may be able direct you to a person or place that can. Just keep in mind that if it's regarding a conflict you're involved in, there could be the possibility that you may be at fault as well.
  • On the content side of things, I'd be happy to help as well. My main interests are areas of video games and rock music, usually from the 1990's to the present. I especially enjoy ones that clearly meet Wikipedia's standard of notability, but tend to fly under the typical mainstream radar. (I'd be much more likely to know about, and be working on, a topic like Ragnarok Tactics than Call of Duty, or Lo-Pro over Nickelback, but that being said, I'm usually at least somewhat knowledgeable in both.)

Anyways, if I haven't lost your interest yet, below is some more information about my editing:

Current activities

My usual mix of working on video game article, album/rock music related articles, and Admin duties. Sergecross73 msg me 12:17, 6 May 2015 (UTC)

Background

I began reading Wikipedia in the mid-2000's, but didn't really edit at all until making an account in 2008. The thing that actually got me to make an account was actually due to stumbling upon the concept of Wikipedia's "watchlist" feature. I signed up mainly to create one - I thought it would be a nice way to find out breaking news on subjects I liked - like if a video game or album had a newly announced release date. However, upon following it for very long, I noticed how much incorrectly added information was added, and began my editing as an effort to fix things (like fake release dates).

My interest in editing Wikipedia increased once I became more familiar with it, and realized just how influential it is. I noticed that the article's I was maintaining were almost always the first hit on search engines like Google, and were often mirrored to other websites across the internet as well. Knowing how readily available this information was, motivated me to become more involved - rewriting entire articles, creating articles, participating in article deletion discussions, etc.

I tend to gravitate towards subjects that meet Wikipedia's requirements for having an article, but don't have much attention directed towards them. Like Earthworm Jim (PSP), an article that sat as a redirect for years until I turned it into a full-fledged article.) I prefer working on subjects like that - where I feel that they wouldn't exist, or wouldn't exist in a very good shape, without my efforts. I find it more rewarding than working on something extremely popular like Nirvana or Pink Floyd, which, while they certainly get more views, also just about always have a sizable fanbase working on the articles, making many of the same edits you would have done.

At the end of 2012, I became an Admin as well. I enjoy being able to provide that extra help to people to enforce the websites rules, but I still focus on article writing/maintaining articles moreso. I tend to help people more who come to me, rather than spending too much time at the the Administrator's help board, which can get a bit overwhelming after too long (though I still help out there if something comes up that I'm knowledgeable about too.)

Anyways, that covers me in a general sense. The following sections cover a little more about the specifics that I've been involved in during my time here. Sergecross73 msg me 16:59, 21 May 2015 (UTC)
