Hello, and welcome to my user page! I'm a Brazilian Wikipedian, but I have always read/edited the English Wikipedia more than the Portuguese one, since the rules over there are not so clear (to the extent that some are simply ignored) and some users tend to be too harsh. Anyway, I've been working hard on articles over there, so that the free knowledge spirit is kept alive (indeed, I now have more articles created there than here). If you want to know more about me, my activities around here and my contacts on real life, just take a look at the userboxes. Feel free to talk to me at my talk page. If you want to know what I'm up to now, take a look at the "Currently working on" section below or check my personal sandbox.


What I do here

I mostly edit and create articles relating to music and Brazil (mostly geography and some biographies), with significant contributions to Ufology and games, too. I also work on the maintenance of articles by tagging them, requesting their deletion or doing some wikifying and cleanup - with special attention to categorization, my favorite maintenance task. I check WP:NEEDCAT and User:Danilo.mac/Category loops regularly and I think you should do it too.

Currently working on


Note that because some of the articles I created or edited have been deleted these numbers will never be 100% accurate.


Note that because some articles already existed as redirects and I added content to them without actually creating a new page, these numbers will never be accurate either. Also, the list below does not consider redirects that I created myself.



Essays are a nice way to express my opinions and pieces of advice in an extensive way. I created a few of them, as follows:
