I have a very blessed life! When not participating in Wikipedia, I work in Business Development. Due to the specific nature of my work, activity on Wikipedia comes in spurts, with various wikibreaks from 2-6 months at a time. If you don't hear back from me right away, don't worry, I'll get back to you shortly. But be careful vandals, I have several people watching my pages while I'm away, so don't be silly.
We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.
I go through various editing spurts on Wikipedia brought on through all sorts of life changes that one usually goes through mid-life. My most recent event with brought me back to Wikipedia was building a new company intranet using Mediawiki. And I'm glad to be back. In my earlier years I contributed a lot to counter-vandalism but that really can cast a pessimistic view of other editors. More recently I have been focusing on what I consider more positive and constructive efforts including the HELPDESK and RM. I dip back into COIN from time to time as well, plus respond to RfC. Due to dyslexia I don't tend to author much direct content on wiki, but I do help cleanup articles especially in the form of formatting or style, as well as help with COI and HD requests for article edits.
I'd love to help you in away way I can. I am a member of the Account Creator, Rollback and Reviewing groups. If I don't know the answer, I can probably find someone who can. Oh, and virtually everything I learned about Wikipeida was the hard way...
I boldly edit and remove vandalism to Wikipedia. About 50% of what I do here is patrolling for such activity. While most of it is totally random, or one-time tests by new users, there are the occasional individual who goes beyond the norm. They are probably just trying to get attention for themselves. Here are a few that I've encountered and have been a part of one-of-several editors who have reverted these interesting people. I also keep an eye out for user page vandalism...
Whether or not you saw my reward board post, you've earned this barnstar for your efforts to shrink the RM backlog. Thank you, and keep up the good work! BDD (talk) 17:24, 22 April 2013 (UTC)

:: When am I online - editing trends
The following is a chart which illustrates Tiggerjay's typical editing trends (updated December 2012, using UMT time-zone). My most active times are between 11pm and 5am UMT (3pm and 9pm local time).. I tend to take various wikibreaks from time to time for several months on end.
