The hippo, a favorite animal of this Wikipedian

Kiki is a hippo female human attending Scripps College, majoring in psychology, spending a lot of time in IRC, and addicted to Wikipedia. She believes that while Wikipedia is a wonderful source, it can often become a vortex and therefore waste hundreds and hundreds of hours in your life.

Kiki primarily focuses on Articles for Creation reviewing, new page patrol, assessing articles for WikiProject Songs, vandalism fighting, and other gnomish tasks. She receives lots of talk page messages and appreciates everyone's patience in waiting for her to get through all of them, as well as the hard work of talk page stalkers and wikifriends such as primefac, L235, TheMesquito and others. On the English Wikipedia, she is a rollbacker and reviewer. She does not primarily speak about herself in the third person. You can find her quickly here on IRC if you'd like.

About Me

This editor is a Veteran Editor and is entitled to shamelessly show off this awesome Iron Editor Star! Yay!

I first started editing Wikipedia when I was a teenager in high school. Contrary to popular suggestion, my first edits were actually vandal-fighting edits and New Page patrol, though I also, for a while, took a stab at joining the Guild of Copy Editors.

In real life, I recently graduated from a high school in Southern California and now attend Scripps College nearby with plans to major in Psychology and Asian American Studies. I identify as a feminist, which means I support gender equality, though I recognize that some people will take that word to mean something else... but feminism, to me, is gender equality. Scripps is the best place, to be surrounded by a community of women (Category:Female Wikipedians is so small compared to Category:Male Wikipedians. It's sad really. How can we get more women to help out?) Everyone is really nice and friendly and I try to live by that philosophy online as well.


  • Why did you decline my article?
Please, do us all a favor and read the decline reason before coming here. When you come to my talk page, please link to your draft. We'll all be happy.
I didn't delete it. Contact the deleting administrator. Either your article was dumb, or, if you think I tagged wrongly, feel free to contest the deletion. Do not remove the template; it can only be removed by an admin declining the CSD nom or by another editor that isn't you. Continuing to remove it can get you blocked.
  • When you were using AWB/STiki/doing new page patrol/disambiguating/etc., you did it wrong/it was a false positive/I was still working on it.
I'm sorry I messed up! I try to assume good faith, but I'm human, too, even though I use these semi-automated tools to help me. Be bold and revert it, provided that it is within WP policy, explaining your revert in the edit summary. If I still disagree, I'll bring it up on the relevant talk page.

hi Kikichugirl, have just read your talk page and after reading all those article review issues would like to thank you for all your hard work and 'cutify' it with a kitten:)

A group barnstar for you from members of WikiProject Articles for Creation

AfC-barnstar-remake.png The Articles for Creation barnstar
The work you do for AFC is absolutely astounding. In just this first week of March, you have reviewed 253 AFC submissions (238 decline, 15 accept) massively helping reduce the AFC backlog. For perspective, I, L235, have ever only declined 166 drafts (using AFCH). The work you do for WPAFC is astronomical. You deserve this and much more.
