About me[edit]

Hi. I started editing Wikipedia (under this account) on March 23, 2006. I am from the United States. Although my username is Basawala, I have in the past used the signature Mar de Sin.

Although my edit history may suggest I'm inactive at times (even for months), I will still be somewhat responsive if you have a question or query which I can immediately answer.


I often make contributions by reverting vandalism, welcoming newcomers, creating redirects, monitoring the new pages and correcting spelling.

I am most heavily involved in articles relating to South Asia, Southeast Asia, and Central Asia, and was most active before 2011.


My page has been vandalised [1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8] times.
