Hi. I'm Joel. I'll just describe myself solely as an editor over here (see below), to show that my intentions are clear and I don't want to appear too 'mysterious' to everybody; at the same time, I agree when many discourage wasting time to decorate and make a fancy userpage (only some simple collapsible tables and boxes here), also a little against adding personal details, views and beliefs since that makes a user likely to be judged or stereotyped and may even discourage fellow editors from contacting them. I hope I stay here for as long as possible.
For tireless contributions to the STiki project especially awarding milestones to users every single day! Great work! Cheers, ƬheStrikeΣagle 16:14, 10 September 2016 (UTC)

The Bronze STiki Barnstar of Merit
Congratulations, Ugog Nizdast! You're receiving this barnstar of merit because you recently crossed the 5,000 classification threshold using STiki.
*pulls out checklist* Okay then. Let's see - has user reverted vandalism? Check. Has user been active recently? Check. Have I run into this user while doing my rounds? Check. *yawns* Man, checklists are so boring. Is user a rollbacker? Check. Is user a reviewer? Check. Do vandals hate this user? I guess... check. Has user been threatened/insulted by vandals? Check. *checks cell phone impatiently* Is user awesome? Check. (maybe?) Does user have a talk page *oh man this checklist is lame* Does user really deserve a barnstar? Check. Are you really, really sure? Oh forget it! *rips checklist into shreds* Here's your barnstar. That took longer than expected... K6ka (talk | contribs) 05:10, 15 February 2014 (UTC)

The Adoptee Graduation Diploma
Although I don't think you really needed adoption and I can't take any credit for your successes here, the least I could do is acknowledge that you are done with the program. Congratulations! You have completed the MrX absent-professor adoption program™. - MrX 15:43, 3 January 2014 (UTC)
Thank you for your peer review of Blackwater fire of 1937. You provided one of the best peer reviews I have had on an article I worked on. MONGO 03:54, 6 August 2013 (UTC)

Wikipedia has always influenced and fascinated me, it developed my strong interest to know more; it also showed me how everything can be looked at objectively. I remember getting into the habit of wikiing any controversial topic just to get the whole picture. Information is a powerful weapon; what makes the internet so brilliant is the free sharing of it. Wikipedia has taken the initiative to push it further, by being the largest collection of free information. Of course it doesn't stop here and that's exactly what makes it invaluable. When I had just joined here, I'll admit that I wanted to do something related to righting the great wrongs; soon I realised that there was so much more than that and it got me interested in helping out. I decided to repay the favour by joining in building and maintaining the Encyclopaedia. I do lack expertise in any special field but offer my humble service. —originally written on 11:50, 14 June 2013.
