About me

Well, hello there! My name is theinstantmatrix, and this is my new user page you are now seeing, based on the user pages of the Wikimedia Foundation staff accounts. You'll most likely find me reverting vandalism using the MediaWiki's [rollback: more than 9000 edits] function, not to be confused with Twinkle's [rollback (VANDAL)]. When I'm not doing any anti-vandalism work, I do other things such as fixing errors on random articles I'm reading, and moving local media onto Wikimedia Commons, sometimes from other language wikis as well.


I officially joined Wikipedia on late July 2017, originally to revert this nonconstructive edit on an article about a video game called EarthBound. Before that, however, I was a long-time reader of Wikipedia, often looking onto random articles, especially video game articles. I also look in onto Wikia, and basically any other popular wikis I can look into, such as a popular game wiki related to Minecraft, or another one related to Terraria. After that first edit, I eventually found myself reverting vandalism using Twinkle, and now here I am; a long-time reader, learning editor and vandal fighter.

Tip of the day[edit]

Tip of the day...
How do you pronounce that?

It is helpful for Wikipedia readers to include pronunciation for words with unusual or difficult spelling. For our English Wikipedia this is especially helpful for foreign names and locations.

The {{Pronunciation needed}} template shows as [pronunciation?] and is used to request the audio or textual pronunciation. This template puts pages into Category:Articles needing pronunciation.
