About me

Well, hello there! My name is theinstantmatrix, and welcome to my user page. You'll most likely find me reverting vandalism using the MediaWiki's [rollback] function, not to be confused with Twinkle's [rollback (VANDAL)]. When I'm not doing any anti-vandalism work, I do other things such as fixing errors on random articles I'm reading, and moving local media onto Wikimedia Commons, sometimes from other language wikis as well.


Originally, I was a long-time reader of Wikipedia and Wikia, often looking onto random articles, especially video game articles, and basically any other popular wikis I can look into, such as a popular game wiki related to Minecraft, or another one related to Terraria. I eventually joined Wikipedia as a registered user on late July 2017, after seeing this on an article about a video game called EarthBound. After I undid it using my newly created account, I found myself reverting vandalism using Twinkle and getting familiar with Wikipedia behind the scenes. Nobody is perfect, and edit counts and rights don't mean anything to me, so if you see me make a genuine mistake, leave me a message on my talk page.


I prefer if you would call me "theinstantmatrix"; "Theinstantmatrix" is displayed due to a MediaWiki restriction, in which that also applies to users as well.

Tip of the day[edit]

Tip of the day...
Automating tasks on Wikipedia

Uploading hundreds of files or changing thousands of pages can be tedious. Limited automation is allowed on Wikipedia as long as it follows certain policies. The easiest way is to use AutoWikiBrowser.

Or, you always can grab your favorite scripting language and write a bot, but there is no need to reinvent the wheel: most modern programming languages have a MediaWiki library already written, there is a full list or programming languages and libraries here. Once you have written the code, you can request approval to trial run your bot. Once approved, your bot will be flagged, so it can be hidden from the list of recent changes. Alternatively you can request someone else take care of the whole matter for you.
