I have too much going on in my real life that editing full-time is only going to get in the way. I come on once in awhile (when I'm bored) and edit a couple minor things but nothing major. -Deftonesderrick
Hello, everyone! I've been using Wikipedia for years and started contributing to editing in early 2009. I created this username in late 2009 to establish myself as a legitimate user in the Wiki-community. I typically contribute anywhere from 10-50 edits a week.
I contribute mostly to plot summaries of video games, movies, television show seasons, and books. As an avid editor, I also do my best to watch for vandalism and misinformation and excise it as quickly as possible. My goal is to use my knowledge to help improve pages, especially their plot sections. Whether or not my changes are accepted, if it eventually leads to improvements, then I feel I've contributed.
Type the first couple of letters in the username box: wait 15-seconds and the box will magically appear with usernames starting with that letter combination
If the username is still not there, type in another letter and wait. Usernames are case, punctuation, and space sensitive, so if a username is CamelCased, has punctuation, or has spaces, you will have to try those variations too.
If you have ever conversed with them, you could check the histories of your own talk page and talk page archives. Set your view to (500).
In your contributions, you could limit the namespace to user talk, and that would give you the names of all the users you have posted to on their talk pages. The same with the talk namespace (via your contributions).
You could also search the talk namespace for your own signature, to locate the threads where others may have replied to you
Where do they hang out? What are they renowned for? If you can remember where they have posted messages, then you can find their username.
