Emblem-favorites.svg NikoSilver is a Greek, so if you notice him being absent during almost half of the evenings, you will know what to assume!
Web-browser.svg NikoSilver is currently working his ass off in real life and has decided that it is about time his long RealLifeBreak in favor of WP was interrupted. He will make frequent brief RealLifeBreaks, but you won't see him as much as you may be used to.[1] (Yeah, he knows you're better off!)
