Movicons2-hello.gifHi there! I'm Dainomite, welcome to my userpage.

You can find me poking around articles that interest me or that I'm knowledgeable in. Most of the aforementioned articles relate in someway to College Football, the Wisconsin Badgers football team, Paradox Interactive video games, Medieval warfare & nobility, the Norman conquest of southern Italy or modern U.S. military history. Most of my edits in the "modern U.S. military history" arena usually pertain in some way to the United States Air Force, Air Force Special Operations Command, United States Special Operations Command, Iraq War or War in Afghanistan. I'm not the greatest content writer, but I'm working on it. I'm not too shabby with making basic templates, userboxes (my ubx work) or other random things. I often help other users by creating, fixing or optimizing their userpages or signatures.

Aside from contributing to Wikipedia I also contribute quite a bit to Wikimedia Commons. I've uploaded around 500 images over there and two dozen or so are my personal photos, some include my past deployments to Iraq and Saudi Arabia. Most of the files I've uploaded relate to either the U.S. military or College football. All the College football pictures are from Flickr users who were generous enough to re-license their photos to CC-BY or CC-BY-SA thus allowing them to be used on Wikipedia projects. If you need pictures to add to articles just leave a note on my talk page and I'll see what I can do to help.

As far as my editing habits go, I am most definitely a WikiSloth in nearly every aspect.

If you have a question, comment or complaint about my edits feel free to leave me a message on my talk page. If you use IRC and want to reach me there my nick is Dainomite, you might find me idling in #wikipedia-en connect or #wikipedia-en-help connect from time to time.

My username

My username, Dainomite, (phonetically: DAY-NO-MIGHT) was given to me in 2004 by friends from the now defunct MMORPG Shadowbane. It was a mix of my username, Dain, and the saying "DY-NO-MITE" (by J.J. Evans from Good Times) and it just stuck from then on. Why "Dain" you ask? When I was a kid I really liked the character Dáin II Ironfoot, from J. R. R. Tolkien's high fantasy legendarium. Feel free to call me Dainomite, Dain or Daino if you'd like.

My signature(s)

If you're wondering why my signature changes from yellow to turquoise you've come to the right place. I do not change my signature preference all the time; I have it set so every 24 hours (at 0000 UTC) it changes automatically from yellow to turquoise and vice versa. The font used in my signature is Century Gothic. For accessibility, the color contrast in my signature is compliant with WP:COLOR.


My Wiki(pedia) history

For the longest time I was intimidated by the editing experience on Wikipedia because I didn't understand wiki markups so I never made an account or bothered to learn. It wasn't until September 2010 when a friend in an online game made an article about my ingame persona (Rogal Dorn) on the game's corresponding wikia that I became fascinated. Immediately afterwards I joined my alliance/guild/clan's (or whatever you want to call it) wiki editing team and made my wikia account (User:RogalDorn). It was there that I quickly learned the basics of contributing in a laid back environment. Most of my contributions to the CN Wiki were documenting history, alliances, game events, wars, treaties and people. Fast forward a year to August 2011 and that's when I made this Wikipedia account. Jump ahead another ten months and that's when I finally decided that I wanted to start contributing. Since I was familiar with the basics of wiki markups, tools like AutoWikiBrowser (which I used on the CN wiki), reverting vandalism, templates and more, I looked into becoming adopted to spin myself up on Wikipedias guidelines and policies as well as how to get involved since there is so much depth to WP it was hard for me to get started on my own. While perusing around at willing adopters I came across Bmusician who ended up adopting me... aaaand then he retired a month later, before I finished my adoption lessons. After that, WormTT offered to adopt me since Bmusician's school was modeled after his but I declined, feeling disenfranchised with Wikipedia at the time and wanting to strike out on my own. I requested AWB[1][2] and Rollbacker[3][4] rights shortly thereafter since I had experience using them. Despite my low edit count at the time both requests were approved.[5][6] After that I returned to what I was familiar with, combating vandalism and cleaning up Wikipedia with AWB. In August 2012 I created my first article, SAFE Boats International, through the Articles for Creation process. The first article I substantially contributed to that was "promoted" to B-class article was United States Air Force Combat Control Team, on January 11, 2013.[7] After seeing the vast amount of articles relating to Special Operations in the lowly start-class range I created the WikiProject Military history incubator task force for Special Operations in May 2013. My next milestone was submitting my first Good Article Nominee in October 2013 which was Bryan D. Brown. It was reviewed and successfully became a Good Article on December 23, 2013, eight months after I had began working on the article.
