The "McDoob" came from a high-school field trip where a corruption of my name was modified into the McDonald's vernacular, like "McNuggets" or "McFlurry," or more recent terms like "McJob" or "McMansion." Incidentally, one should not assume that I'm referring to a particular drug, because I'm not; so please, don't ask about that.
I'm still playing with various features of Wikipedia, so many times this will be my "sandbox mode." This way, I can play with a component of an article without affecting it, at least until I finish the modifications. I may post questions in my talk page about how to do things, so if you can help me, please do so. Thanks!
The first article that I actually started was one for Universal Studios South Korea, as I saw it was redlinked in another article I was editing. I decided to research it and start it up, and was kind of surprised that nobody else did. Well, Wikipedia says be bold, so I was. I look forward to seeing how it changes going forward.
Thank you for your hard work and contribution on wikipedia. Tiggerjay (talk) 04:21, 6 September 2009 (UTC)

To celebrate the editors who have been with Teahouse from the beginning through its first year, we've made you this extra special birthday badge! Teahouse continues to be awesome because you are still here all these months later, so thank you. You are the Foundation of this awesome project.
On 11 March 2013, Did you know? was updated with a fact from the article Sky Zone, which you created or substantially expanded. The fact was ... that the first location of the Sky Zone chain of trampoline parks was originally intended as an arena for a professional sport involving trampolines and rotating goals? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Sky Zone. You are welcome to check how many hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, quick check) and it will be added to DYKSTATS if it got over 5,000. If you know of another interesting fact from a recently created article, then please suggest it on the Did you know? talk page.
