    Hi! My name is Chlod (/ˈklɑːd/). I'm a software developer specialized in web development languages (HTML, CSS, PHP, and JavaScript - including Node and TypeScript) who sometimes does work on Java and C# as well. I'm working towards getting a software engineering course in the near future.

    I've been on Wikipedia for a long time now, but I've only decided to be more active recently (patrolling recent changes since October 12, 2019). I'm really interested in anti-vandalism, grammar correction, and script building. I've made a few userscripts, and those can be found here, and I've made a few tools that interact with Wikipedia, or are made for Wikipedia, and they can be found here. I'm also currently RedWarn's project lead. If you're into what else I make, feel free to have a glance at my GitHub. I am a part of the WMF's organization communications translators group, editing under User:Chlod (OCTG) for edits made (in this case, translations) with compensation.

    If you'd like to have a chat, you can reach out to me on the Wikimedia Discord server as chlod#9493, or on my talk page. I very occasionally use IRC as chlod (with host mask chlod@wikipedia/chlod) on Libera, but I do check my client daily and I receive all direct messages. For matters that may be personal or private, you can talk to me through Discord or you can send me an email through Special:EmailUser. I'm always open to improvement on my editing skills and/or behavior.



    Probably my most redeeming aspect. I archive a lot of things, namely JTWC warnings and PAGASA bulletins.


    Some userscripts may also rely on libraries to easily implement functionality shared across multiple userscripts. I maintain the following libraries:


    Tool Status Description Code Operation
    Chlod's Wikipedia Tools     Active Used to host all tools on this table. See infobox Persistent
    PAGASA Parser     Active Parses information from PAGASA's Tropical Cyclone Bulletin (TCB) page and turns it into various formats. See infobox Persistent
    JTWC Archiver     Active Parses information from the Joint Typhoon Warning Center's RSS feed and archives whichever version is available. See infobox Persistent (products)
    Every 10 minutes (archiving)
    Stroke Order Resolver     Active Takes a Kanji, Hiragana, or Katakana character, and returns the stroke order for that character. See infobox Persistent
    Article Randomizer     Active Gets a random good article or featured article and displays it to the user. See infobox Persistent


    I have an alternate account used for testing: User:Chlod (test), and I control User:RedWarn and User:10nm for automated userscript updates. I also have a bot account used for automated edits: User:Zoomiebot. I work with the Wikimedia Foundation in translation; edits made with compensation are made under User:Chlod (OCTG). Other than those accounts, I operate no other accounts on Wikipedia (aside from my Wikitech account, which is separate from SUL) and I never edit on an IP address intentionally.

    WikiProject Copyright Cleanup[edit]

    Green copyright.svg I occasionally help with contributor copyright investigation cases, particularly the WikiProject Tropical cyclones case. I enforce copyright in WikiProject Tropical cyclones and help spot and correct copyright problems on the project. I also maintain Deputy, a copyright cleanup userscript.

    WikiProject Tropical Cyclones[edit]

    Temporary cyclone north.svg I work on the current Pacific typhoon season article by adding citations, archiving warnings from official sources, and general copyediting. I am also responsible for preventing the existence of {{cn span}} tags on any tropical system in the current Pacific typhoon system (as long as I was there when it was active.)

    WikiProject JavaScript[edit]

    Unofficial JavaScript logo 2.svg I volunteer to make userscripts requested at the WPJS talk page, and I also make userscripts myself.

    I am amazed on how quickly you included the solution for gracefully supporting the DS alerts template. You have made using WP:RW much more useful than it already was. Thank you. Walrus Ji (talk) 19:03, 14 January 2021 (UTC)

    This is for the things we discussed off-wiki. I admitted that I am really careless for the past two months, which can be explained by stress I have when I'm in college as well as my duties with elevated privileges I have. I own up to all of these mistakes and will strive to further improvement. MarioJump83! 05:05, 7 April 2021 (UTC)

    Chlod, please take this barnstar. Your personal health issues must get in the way of your work and yet, you're often swiftly dealing with unhelpful edit requests at Talk:Absolute pitch. You're doing all of this plus much more - that can't be easy. Liamyangll (talk to me! | My contribs!) 07:08, 5 January 2022 (UTC)

    For Deputy, ANTE, IA, CTE, etc. Your scripts are the very first bits of automation in a very manual area of work, and countless hours have been saved. Hopefully the bugs don't reign forever. Sennecaster (Chat) 18:44, 2 October 2022 (UTC)

    Thank you for making Deputy! It has replaced the diff walls at CCI and made copyvio checking more easier to read. Your help is greatly appreciated. Keep up the great work :) MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 00:24, 7 December 2022 (UTC)
