Background Bio[edit]

My real name is Alex, or Alexander. I'm twenty years old and a resident of Logan Township, New Jersey. I'm a graduate of the Kingsway Regional School District and currently attending Gloucester County College. I work full time as a professional auto mechanic and will be an ASE-certfied automotive technician pending completion of the two-year work experience requirement, having already passed several certification tests.

My primary areas of interest are computers, politics and government, law, history, and automotive/transportation. These interests are not often reflected in my contributions, as I am often heavily involved in site maintenance and article polishing.

Work on Wikipedia[edit]

I've been away from active participation in Wikipedia for quite a while although I never stopped using it as a resource. Recently I've again become interested in helping out a lot more, and plan to contribute much more in my spare time. I focus a lot on tracking down, reverting, and preventing vandalism, but I also try to make many proactive contributions, such as creating new pages, overhauling and wikifying current ones, adding images, and generally providing a smoother user experience.

Trying to stay on top of vandalism is like trying to push a boulder up a hill.

Projects, Teams, Collaborations[edit]

Tools and Links[edit]

I use VandalFighter to actively patrol the most recent edits to Wikipedia. I also use Twinkle and Friendly to get stuff done fast.

Some additional tools and links I use to contribute are listed on my Toolbox page.

To see my to-do list, what I'm working on, or a collection of things that I have somehow made my problem, see my Notebook.
