Quick links[edit]

A few quick links for myself.


Howdy. I am an English Wikipedia administrator and checkuser. I mostly patrol for vandalism and gnome. I'm also involved in maintaining templates and modules for the WP:VG project. I'm open to being approached directly with reports of vandals, disruptive editors, or pages that need protection.

My username comes from my gaming handle, which I picked many years ago because I had some pet ferrets, which are awesome. Lowercase please, for stylistic purposes :)

I can be contacted on the unofficial Wikimedia Discord server. I will not discuss or debate unblock requests on Discord.

Thanks for helping me with the List of Sonic the Hedgehog video game characters article. (I imagine you saw my request at WP:VG?) I've gotten it semi-protected now, so hopefully it should taken care of. Thanks! Sergecross73 msg me 15:44, 22 February 2012 (UTC)

I'm just now diving into your suggestion to look at the Retro Gamer Magazine issue with the retrospective on the Rogue Squadron series and it is a treasure trove of development info not already included in the Star Wars: Rogue Squadron Featured Article. I'm going to try to neatly incorporate the info into the current article ASAP. Thanks! --TorsodogTalk 01:55, 18 April 2019 (UTC)

The console list ecosystem is a mess, and one which no one really has taken control of, but today you cleaned up a massive part of it by sorting out the elaborate mess of PS3 lists that had accumulated. It wasn't the most glamorous work, but it makes a big impact in that area, and sets a great precedent. -- PresN 03:44, 21 January 2021 (UTC)
