Hello! My alias is voidxor. I joined Wikipedia in 2005 and have been editing ever since.


Etymology of voidxor

If you are a computer programmer, you may have already noticed that voidxor is a concatenation of the programming terms void and XOR.

Originally, I had planned to use voidxorsub as my alias. A function that returns nothing (this is called a subprocedure in Visual Basic) must be declared void in C, C++, and C# or sub in Visual Basic. Since XOR represents the exclusive-or logic gate, placing it between void and sub indicates that one or the other would be used to declare a function that returns nothing, but never both terms.

Each computer programming term in voidxorsub denotes a piece of my programming knowledge:

Since voidxorsub is annoyingly long for an alias, I ultimately decided to go with just voidxor.


I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in computer engineering and a Master of Science degree in electrical engineering, both from the University of Kansas.

Articles for deletion (AfD)

Date Page Reason Outcome
2013-01-11 Skoosh Dictionary definition of made-up or obscure word featuring an irrelevant history of Scottish words and some spam-like external links. Deleted
2013-02-07 MemCheck Uncited mention of how the term is used by multiple people. Half of the article's text lists similar terms. Not encyclopedic nor a dictionary definition. Redirected
2017-01-02 Sanjib Sahoo This biography reads like a résumé, and might even be an autobiography or paid biography. It started its history as a cut-and-paste job from another website. I don't believe the subject meets the the notability standard for biographies of living persons. Deleted

2015-09-16 Sanjib Sahoo This biography reads like a résumé, and might even be an autobiography. It started its history as a cut-and-paste job from another website. I do not believe that officers of medium-sized companies (especially former ones) meet the the notability standard for biographies of living persons. Sole author removed template
2016-11-04 Planned Maintenance System in shipping This article is about one specific system or application (shipping), and thus not notable compared to computerized maintenance management systems as a whole. Deleted
2016-12-08 Boot Repair Disk Non-notable, uncited advertising Deleted
2016-12-18 Service specific face plate As a 10 cm piece of plastic deployed by one or two companies in one country, I don't believe this to be notable. We don't even have a wallplate article (or else I'd propose merging), so how is this worthy of its own article? Deleted
2016-12-25 IBM 3624 Individual models of automatic teller machine (ATM) are not notable, and generally don't get their own Wikipedia articles. Counterexamples provided
2016-12-30 Compatibility testing Unencyclopedic litany of things that can be tested for compatibility. Likely original research. Note that Wikipedia is not a dictionary Crusading inclusionist WMF employee habitually deprodding without explanation
