Quick Facts About Bobby[edit]

A Deeper Look at Bobby[edit]

I currently live with my girlfriend and 2 kittens in Connecticut.

Bobby and Wikipedia - A Short Story[edit]

I first came across WP during my freshman year of college (February of 2003 to be precise). It was literally the only page I could find with sufficient info on the Great Chicago Fire. From this lucky introduction, a wonderul relationship was born. During the duration of my under graduate education, I consulted WP on just about every serious assignment given to me. I also began editting pages under my school's ip, trying to add my knowledge to the fast growing collection.

When I graduated college, and began a fairly menial job for P&W, I created an account for the first time. I had great fun formatting a signature that took up a good six lines on talk pages, a fact only brought to my attention recently (I always thought that the tildes were all anybody else saw). I also enjoyed the ability to track my contributions, and fully participate in XfDs without being labeled a sock puppet or troll. As of writing this (22:10, 15 November 2006 (UTC)) I've had my account for less than a month but have already ammassed nearly 500 edits.

Recently, I took on the rolls of Cabal Mediator and AMA Advocate. It's nice to be able to help out whenever possible. I look forward to the day when I feel my (registered) contributions support adminship, and I'll get a chance to clear away some of backlog in the CSD category. Until then, I plan on continuing my edits at a breakneck pace, so as to ensure the continued growth of my favorite wiki.
