The Signpost
25 September 2017

Hello! My name is Jeff, and I'm currently a Rollbacker and Reviewer here. I am the [head] coordinator for the Rollbacker and Reviewer Cabal, which I also founded on my birthday (July 18). I'm also a Coder and Editor at I can speak Chinese fluently (Simplified is the system I use), so you can contact me for any help.

I'm currently involved in the War on Vandalism, training new people for the battlefield, and the drafting of the new guidelines of AFT5. However, I can help with many things, so don't just sit there thinking Wikipedia is hopeless; I'm here to help! :D

Bio and thesis

When I began editing Wikipedia, I was very confused about what the guidelines were, and I tried to make good faith edits. They were very stupid, actually. But, I got warnings and I almost thought I was going to get blocked.

Well, I came back a few months later and I found out that I wasn't! I began making more reasonable edits to Wikipedia, and now I don't act like a fool anymore.

It has become my mission to make confused, good-faith acting and new users feel welcome instead of scared, with those warning templates. Ugh.

Some users have felt that I was a lifesaver. Ballisticizer has been really nice to me and even said this:

You will be the first person on the wikipedia i will remember good experiences, thank you very much sir...

I now believe in treating users kindly, and in exchange they will trust me. This creates less tension and more friendship and mutual respect on Wikipedia. It's karma, and it's real. Of course, for cold hearted vandals I still fight the mean way.

But, I met Ballisticizer on Igloo, when I saw something was going a bit oddly. So, it doesn't mean I just use the standard warning templates issued by Igloo and Twinkle.

Treat others the way you'd want to be treated, or treat them nicely. They will always give you something in return; everyone here is a human being, who deep down WILL have sympathy and a kind heart.
