What I Edit[edit]

I mostly edit stuff having to do with either album/single sales and chart performance.

This includes articles such as:

So you can get a grasp of how heavy an editor I am was, just in the first half of 2012 I made 1,998 edits including 510 in March alone. And that's just in the English Wikipedia (where 90% of my edits are). Continuing with the horrors of my Wikipedia addiction, I'm the top contributor of all time at Lorde, the list of best selling singles and the list of best-selling albums in Brazil, in addition to being the top contributor of the past two years of the list of best-selling albums.

One could say that I'm obsessed with researching the sales of mainstream singles to somehow prove to the public at large that they're as important as album sales, at least in the digital age. If you go take a look at the list of best-selling music artists' talk page, without a doubt you'll find some editor or Wikipedia reader complaining that X artist can't have sold Y million because his/her/their albums have only sold N million copies or that X artist has really sold X+Y million and not W million when you count the Y million albums and X million digital singles they sold because "W million records" absolutely does not already include the X million digital singles the artist's sold [^rant^]

Why I'm A User[edit]

To quote Cprice1000 --"I often see incorrect/out of date material and really want to do something about instead of poke and yell at other Wikipedians to do it for me. So I made an account and became a Wikipedian who is --mostly-- open to be poked and yelled at."

Literally speaking, I actually created my Wikipedia account to ask that Prince be added to the aforementioned best-selling artists list.
