Retired users Since I started editing, there were few editors who helped me a lot or with whom I enjoyed working and we collaborated constructively many times. Unfortunately, due to some reasons, few of those became inactive or retired and they are missed right now. Here is a list of those wonderful editors whom I wish, should come back:

Wiki letter w.svg

About me Hi there! Nice to see you here, if you have any questions, please do ask them :) So, I'm Yash, previously known as TheSpecialUser (TSU). I live in Ahmedabad; I was born and raised there and love my city (In case you ever visit Ahmedabad, don't forget to ping me for a meetup or an outing or something if you wish to). I'm a 16 year old high schooler (born; 16 October), precisely in 11th grade- this is one of the reasons why my editing will be a bit passive. I've been on Wiki for quite some time and I enjoy my time around. Due to school life and some health issues, I'm no more active like I used to be, however, I'll be back with the extensive edits once the summer holidays start.

Green Day are the greatest influences of my life. I started editing with India related articles; now, my contributions are focused around India, Pakistan or Green Day topics. That is why I plan to convert many articles related to IND, PAK and GD to GA status; most of the GAs or DYKs achieved by me so far come from these topic and I don't wish to move away from these three stars. My interests are editing Wikipedia, boxing, playing chess, football and cricket, watching Two and a half men, MasterChef, New Girl, Criminal Minds, Aadalat or Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah and few shows including practical jokes and pranks, mountain climbing, travelling, listening to music which not many people like, stamp collection, watching movies, "staying the night", and many more things. On the darker side, I suffer from drug addiction.

My work on Wikipedia Right now, I'm Autoconfirmed and Reviewer. I love content creation, improving articles, helping others and fighting vandalism as well as NPP and reviewing articles at GAN and PR or editors at ER, I also love improving articles upto GA status. In the start, I got in Bmusician's adoption school (User:Bmusician retired, thus my page was moved under User:Worm That Turned's page); however, Bmusician returned back after surviving a car crash. I'm a kind of WikiButterfly (if they even exists); moving from one place to other.Originally said by User:Yunshui I patrol Special:NewPages and also have managed to keep a CSD success rate of 98% or something. I also relist debates, participate in voting and also do non-admin clousers at AfD where I have an accuracy of 97% or near. Also try to help out at AfC by helping new submissions to get to article status if possible or by declining some in the review process from the blocklog. At times, I've also closed few WP:RFCs or random discussions. GA-FA-FL-DYK are one of my favorite areas (In fact, it is the thing that I've enjoyed most and will always do it). I have helped promote 1 list to WP:FL status and 9 articles so far to reach GA status and also have reviewed 51 WP:GAN (GA reviews I either do upon request or in the times when I'm busy in real life). Plus, I've got 11 articles to feature in the WP:DYK section on the Main page. I also spend time at WP:CHUU and WP:CHUS. In free time, I also do visit IRC and try to help out newbies there- mostly they seek help regarding AFC submissions and I do my best to resolve their issues. I have also joined few WikiProjects and love working at WP:INCOTM the most, plus, WP:GREEN DAY is my favourite WikiProject, obviously. As of August 2012, I serve as the Coordinator of the WP:IPL and I also hold access to run User:EdwardsBot. I also make userboxes, review any editor's contributions, review GA nom or improve articles upon request.

I'm a WP:CLEANSTART of User:Yasht101 and it was attempted due to few personal issues. If anyone needs any clarification about it, please mail me.
