McDoobAU93 is a Wikipedia editor located in Atlanta, Georgia, USA.

About the name[edit]

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.

The "AU93" refers to Auburn University and the year I graduated from there.

Where to find the editor[edit]

I'm a major theme-park fan, so you can find my handiwork on many of the major park pages here. I've dabbled in other articles too, and I do try and leave edit notes so people will know what I did.

What you'll find here[edit]

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[edit]

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.
