My history on Wikipedia
I first started to read Wikipedia a long time ago (around 2006/2007). Reading articles back then helped me learn new things. In late 2008, I began editing Wikipedia under the IP of 22.214.171.124. I might have edited before that, but I can't find these edits. It later changed to 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52.
On July 18, 2009, I made my first account, December21st2012Freak. I chose that username because back then I was so scared that the world would 'end' on December 21, 2012, and I used to think it would actually happen. Why did I believe that? Well, first and most important of all was how old I was back then, I was only 9 years old when I created that account! It was only a month before my 10th birthday, more specifically. Even though I was that young, I still tried to constructively edit and revert vandalism. If you want to see my earliest edits under my old account, check these out. Once August 2009 came, I became more experienced, and I was using Twinkle to revert vandalism instead of the "undo" button. I also used to edit the Wikipedia:Sandbox a lot because I thought it was fun, and that was also where I did some very immature edits (since I was only 9/10 back then). Also in August, I got the rollback feature, started using Huggle, and began creating and improving articles, something a young kid probably won't do.
In September 2009, I continued to revert vandalism and began talking with some new wiki-friends such as Spongefrog and White Shadows. I continued with my original editing style until November 2009, when I stopped editing the Sandbox and improved more articles. In December, I revamped my userpage to a much cleaner style, since the older style was very cluttered. If you want to see my oldest userpage from late 2009, check this out.
Once 2010 came, I wasn't as addicted to off-topic posting on user talk pages as I was in 2009, and I improved more articles and reverted more vandalism. Later that year, I started to copyedit lots of articles, and participated in these copyediting drives. I also stopped reverting vandalism by late 2010 for some reason. During 2010, I also matured a little bit compared to 2009.
In 2011, I continued to improve articles and check for their grammar. In March 2011, I changed my username to Steve2011 because I didn't believe in that doomsday prediction anymore. The doomsday prediction eventually failed, like all end of the world predictions do. After that, I started to become less active, and soon became semi-retired. This was the last edit I made to an article under my old account before I began to take the long break between the last edit on my old account and the creation of my new account in February 2012 when I was 12 years old, when I posted a "retirement" message on my user and talk pages even though I wouldn't retire permanently.
In August 2013, I created this account called "StevenD99". Between the retirement of my old account and the creation of this account, I edited Wikipedia only 1 time, and it was this edit. That edit, in fact, happened only a couple weeks before the creation of this account. Since I created this account, I have started to revert vandalism again and do other stuff to help the wiki. However, beginning in September 2013, I started to become less active and started to take wikibreaks due to school and also being too busy on other parts of the internet. Between then and July 2014, I was inactive, taking long breaks lasting a couple months at times, and it was all because of school and being on other parts of the internet (such as YouTube and the Hypothetical Hurricanes Wiki, where I have an account called Steve820). I'm on that wiki because I have a major interest in hurricanes and other natural disasters. During summer vacation I edited only occasionally but plan to gradually become more active unless school, which is starting at the end of the month, hampers my activity here again. This probably shouldn't happen because I usually edit during afternoons, evenings, and nights even on weekends and non-school days, and I also plan to change my internet style a little bit so I can focus on Wikipedia editing more. I don't plan on retiring anytime soon.
