I am a video game developer living in Paris. I joined Wikipedia because I got fed up with the incredible number of typos and grammar errors, but I also do real contributions. I like controversial topics. If you want to know more about me, some people made an article about me.

I like humour and Theresa Knott. I dislike bitmap emoticons, hypocrites, non-standard signatures and user pages written in the third person.

Also, my surname has nothing to do with hovercars whatsoever. As you may see in the picture on the left, they are two very different things.


Nemo of honour for pointing out lots of tiny annoying mistakes

This page has been vandalised NINE-FUCKING-TEEN (19) times.

There were once 7000 occurrences of the word fuck in the Wikipedia database, and 1842 occurrences of various derivatives such as fucks, fucking, fucked, fucker, fuckers. One could also enjoy almost 300 other derivatives, including fucktard, fuckhead, buttfuck and motherfucker.

My contributions[edit]

Since 2004, I have been fixing thousands of common grammar and spelling errors, such as “it’s” / “its” confusions. I did thousands of other grammar and spelling fixes. I try to fix spelling on sister projects as well, through the Wikispelling project. In total, I did more than 50,000 edits to Wikipedia.

I have been contributing mostly anonymously between the years 2006 and 2010 and have found it to be a lot more enjoyable. It's becoming more and more difficult, though.

I, Cormaggio think that the use of "hovercar on wheels" is inappropriate and just plain wrong. Cormaggio @ 14:52, 9 March 2006 (UTC)
