Hello, I'm David. Although I created this account in July 2008, I've been familiar with Wikipedia since October 2006. I've been visiting for several years, but it was nearly April 2011 that I started contributing seriously. Contributions on Commons Wikimedia.
I've participated with anything from: looking for sources, cleaning vandalism, articles for deletion discussion, newpages patrol, recent changes patrol, removing old IP warnings and random article patrol. If users have questions, I'll attempt my best to answer them. This user is being considered for deletion, you can voice your opinion(s) at User:GlassCobra/Editor for deletion.
I have started a page here with basic links that should help new users. As noted there, contact me at my talk page if that page hasn't answered your question(s).
My username is a random fusion of Swiss and twister.

Fall seven times, stand up eight. ~ Japanese Proverb
The greatest oak was once a little nut who held its ground. ~ Author Unknown
It's not that I'm so smart, it's that I stay with problems longer. Difficult things take time, impossible things a little longer. Success seems to be largely a matter of hanging on after others have let go. ~ William Feather
We must be the change we want to see ~ Mahatma Gandhi
The Anti-Vandalism Barnstar
I, I Jethrobot, award SwisterTwister the Anti-Vandalism Barnstar because it's no fun hanging out in recent changes late at night unless you know you're going on your anti-vandalism crusade with other awesome people. I, Jethrobotdrop me a line (note: not a bot!) 06:48, 24 July 2011 (UTC)
