Some quick information
So this is my user page. I recommend reading it. You should also take a gander at my talk page and contributions, to get a proper understanding of what I do here. If you're not reading any of that, at least read all of this section. I'll give a brief summary of what this page says: I edit exclusively on a phone. I focus on editing articles related to the NBA, video games, and comic books, but you could encounter me anywhere. I do lots of cleaning (typos, punctuation, etc.), I terminate vandalism, I try not to be a WP:DICK, I have a few crazy theories on the way the world works, I have some 'Wikipedia rules' I abide by (such as never assuming another editor's gender, never swearing, never giving personal information that wouldn't be of any use on Wikipedia (such as my exact name, exactly where I live, my age, etc.), and always putting a "—" before the four tildes when I sign posts, among other small, trivial things), I'm an Australian male who lives in Australia, and I really, really like Wikipedia. I also love reading, food, animals, The Simpsons, Futurama, South Park, Jeopardy!, SpongeBob SquarePants, sexual things, the Internet, outer space, and how weird this universe is. There are also userboxes, an explanation of my user name, a cryptic sentence about me, and other things that are good to know. Happy editing!
Why is my user name DangerousJXD?
Well, on the video game Grand Theft Auto V, if you call Jimmy, and it's not a part where he will answer, the voice message says: "Dis big J, A.K.A. J dawg, A.K.A. dangerous J. And I should probably say Jimmy De Santa in case this is in relation to a doctors appointment. Spizeak!" So there you go, DangerousJ with the XD emoticon. I like the XD emoticon and J is a letter of importance to me. I'm far from dangerous. DangerousJXD is one of the names I 'go by'. My real name is obviously not DangerousJXD.
I am a PlayStation gamer. I love Marvel and DC comic books. The National Basketball Association is spectacular. The Internet is pretty sweet. YouTube, Google, and Wikipedia are the three best things the Internet has to offer. I don't have a computer. I don't have the Internet. I love food. The Simpsons is the best TV show ever made! Jeopardy! is pretty great too. I enjoy other programming too. I love air-conditioning. I read a lot. Star Wars is epic. I still use DVDs. I have some serious issues. I have been through a severe tropical cyclone and I don't like it. I get scared of electronic devices. Space is a wonderful place. I swear like a sailor off Wikipedia. I wish I was born a female. I am not religious in any way at all. I drink Coke. I love animals. I have mastered the art of whistling. I am not a sucker. I'm a bragger.
Notes about Wikipedia
- If you asked me why I edit Wikipedia, I wouldn't know how to summarize it in a timely manner. I suppose a simple way of saying why I edit Wikipedia is this: I edit Wikipedia because I love Wikipedia.
- I edit Wikipedia on a phone as I don't have a computer. It really doesn't matter though because everything is pretty much the same and I can switch to desktop view if I need it. You don't need to treat me differently; I use a phone, so what? I don't like the fact that I use a phone but it's all I got.
- I believe that welcoming users is one of the best things a user can do here on Wikipedia. If I hadn't gotten my welcome message, then I would most likely either be very bad at editing Wikipedia or not be editing at all here on Wikipedia. That initial welcome is a motivator to get started.
- Ping me.
- Why did I join Wikipedia? Well, there are a few reasons. I initially created an account just for something fun to do. I also wanted another thing to do in my life that would 'fill a void'. Other than that, there really aren't many other reasons why I'm here. In fact, I'm not sure why I'm here now. I have fun editing Wikipedia and it's a hobby of mine but really, I don't know why I am still here. I take Wikipedia very seriously though but why am I even here? I do love Wikipedia so I suppose that's the answer.
- Don't hesitate to use my talk page.
- Don't vandalize Wikipedia. Just don't.
- My user page is stupid. If you want to know something about me, ask me directly.
- I tend to sound like a WP:DICK, I tend to confuse others, I tend to take a long time replying to others, I tend to have long talk page posts, and I tend to say dumb things. These are all caused by my poor ability to construct proper sentences together to express what I'm actually trying to say. In fact, these three sentences took me around 20 minutes to construct.
- My sandbox's edit history has some other opinions of mine.
- If you're new to editing Wikipedia, go to the Teahouse. That is the place where I learned a big portion of what I know. It's so good at teaching new users, that somebody once thought I was a seasoned editor.
- If you see a typo, correct it immediately or it will haunt you forever. I saw one once but I left it. Even though someone has probably corrected it, that still annoys me that I just left it. Never again.
- I will now tell the story of the time I left Wikipedia. About a month into editing, a user had a "dispute" with me. The "dispute" was concerning false accusations, uncivil behaviour, misunderstandings, and me being an inexperienced, immature idiot. The whole situation was terrible. This "dispute" made me leave Wikipedia. I was still learning the ropes and therefore, I was not good at all at editing Wikipedia. I had 300 or so edits and I didn't like Wikipedia as much as I do now; I thought it was a cool, fun, little thing to do here and there. Wikipedia didn't have me hooked yet; it has its claws in me now though. Wikipedia is now more than some dumb hobby; back then, I thought of it as some dumb hobby. When I decided to leave, I left a message on my talk and user pages saying: "Bye Wikipedia.". I then logged out. A few days later I wanted back in. I tried to log in but I didn't remember my password. After a few minutes of trying to crack my own password, I suddenly didn't care anymore. A week or so later (at this point, I was well and truly over Wikipedia), my phone broke. Five months later, I got a new phone. You see, I am not one of those high-tech punks that always is doing something on their fancy phone, so I didn't need a phone. Wikipedia is the sole purpose of my phone. I don't care for "apps" or social media, or anything like that. A few weeks after I got the new phone, I started thinking about Wikipedia. I decided to attempt to log back in. After a few days of trying all the things my password could be, I cracked it (and it was so obvious to me). I removed the two notes I left and returned to normal editing. A relatively short time after that, I "fell in love" with Wikipedia. The rest, as they say, is history. The "dispute" never "ended".
- I have a userbox below which displays the current time where I am. I am never active at 10:25PM–5:40AM and I can be active at any other time. I am very active every day.
- One day, I stumbled upon this. I highly recommend you go read it; it's an essay a user wrote talking about their Wikipedia opinions. That essay sums up a lot of my Wikipedia opinions and beliefs.
- Create an account. Some users once gave me some terrific answers to a question I asked at the Teahouse regarding user accounts.
- Do you follow the talk page guidelines?
- I don't waste time warning vandals.
- I edit a wide variety of topics here at Wikipedia. I edit things that are in my random stuff section above like the NBA, comics, and video games. I sometimes edit topics related to sex, movies, television programmes, Australian culture, food, animals, and wrestling. I edit any mistake I see on any page on the spot, such as issues with the layout of articles, grammar, general typographical errors, or punctuation. I spend quite a lot of time "fixing" errors. I revert unconstructive edits (vandalism, etc.). I edit anything I have interests or knowledge in, a lot of which is outlined in the section above. I do a lot of things around here that nobody else will. Even though I primarily edit things related to video games, the NBA, and comic books, I really just edit anything. You could see me anywhere!
- I do not upload pictures to Wikipedia as I have the tech-savvy level of a stereotypical 70 year old.
- I do not edit at any other Wikimedia projects.
- There could be times where I'll be inactive or not very active on Wikipedia for a certain amount of time. This could be caused by a number of things. Maybe I hate Wikipedia again and have decided to leave (doubt it), maybe I'm busy (probably not), maybe my phone breaks (possible), maybe my phone signal is playing up (good chance), maybe my phone has run out of credit (big worry), or maybe, just maybe, it involves cyclones. Of course there is a chance I have died or something like that. If I was to choose to leave Wikipedia, I would leave a note somewhere saying that I have done so.
- Sometimes, I make 15 edits to an article in a row. Now. This might be seen as "trying to boost my edit count" so I have 7 million edits. I don't care about my edit count. It is worth mentioning this here. Since I use a only phone, most of the time, I'm editing in mobile view (not all the time though as a lot of editing is made in desktop view). In mobile view, you cannot edit the whole article in one edit. This, therefore, would alone cause some extra edits (copy-paste moving a section for example means a minimum of 2 edits). Couple that with the facts that my phone tends to 'malfunction' and ruin everything, I find it is better to edit in batches, and that I make quite a few mistakes, it's easy to see why I would "flash flood" the edit history. I do not do this on purpose and I apologize if it annoys you. I prefer to 'split' edits up because: occasionally my phone deletes my progress, it's more fun, it's easier, it's faster, and it limits the chance I will mess everything up. I do not 'split' up edits on purpose either; I just edit how it's best in the situation. For example, a super long article is much easier to edit in smaller edits, by editing the subsections. Also, many problems can arise from an article being super long, so sometimes extra edits are unavoidable. About my mistakes: I'll make an edit. Right? Then seconds later, I'll see something else, and edit again. And then that happens again. And then maybe something else similar happens, like a typo I made. Edits sort of just happen. The point is, I'm here to help Wikipedia, not look cool with an edit count in the millions. This is just how it is. If you edit via mobile, you will understand. A lot of things can be misinterpreted; this is one of them. All this is especially true if you're a regular, like me. Of note is that I tend to have a distaste for editors who are clearly editing for a high edit count.
- I sometimes wonder who's watching me...
- Wikipedia is serious business.
- Are you here to build an encyclopedia?
- I keep Wikipedia business on Wikipedia. So for example, I will never email anyone regarding Wikipedia like some users do. I don't even have an email.
- I do not use any kind of talkback templates. That's what the notification system is for.
- I do not make "(Semi-)automated edits".
- When discussing things, I prefer keeping the discussion on one page.
