Hi! I'm Yoshi24517, and I've been a Wikipedian since December 2013. I currently have around 8,000 edits.

I mainly revert vandalism on Wikipedia using many types of tools, such as Huggle, Twinkle, STiki, and many others. I also mainly use AutoWikiBrowser a lot, because I'm not really a content creator. I just like making small fixes to articles to help make them better. I think there's been a couple of times that I've saved a couple pages from being deleted because I've added cleanup tagging to them, and the author was able to clean up the articles, saving them from being deleted in the first place. I also like to help out at the Wikipedia backlogs, and help clean them out. I have been trying to clean out the dead links backlog, but there are 218,312 articles in that category right now and it seems like every time I clean a few out, they get replaced with about 100 more. I also work on cleaning out the G13 backlog, and help clear out those old and abandoned WP:AFC submissions.

I was blocked back in January 2014 for WP:COMPETENCE. I learned that I was acting like I shouldn't have, and got my block resolved about a week later, and have been making useful contributions ever since.

My editing history has shown that I started back in December, making a few edits here and there, stopping for like 3-4 months, and then making another couple edits, and repeating that over and over again. That was because I really didn't have the time to edit back then, but now, I normally have enough time to edit.

I'm a very easy-going editor, and I don't get mad over something if someone or somebody doesn't agree with me. I usually let things go, and move on. I usually assume WP:AGF, and I leave welcome messages and user warnings on user talk pages. If I apply for a user right or a job (For example, WP:OTRS or WP:ACC), then I just try to work on the things they told me to do, and reapply at a later time.

I am also part of a really cool project called Puggle. This is a cool program where you can use IntelliJ IDEA by Jetbrains to edit Wikipedia wiki-markup. I am the current Head of Bug Testing for the project, and if you have any questions about Puggle, you can join us on IRC at ##puggle connect

I can be reached by email or on my user talk page at User talk:Yoshi24517. If you have any questions, or complaints, let me know there, and I can respond to you as soon as I can. If you want to tell me that I'm doing a good job or give me a barnstar, by all means, please do! I appreciate all the support and awards I get.

I am known on IRC on Freenode as Yoshi24517, but will also change between different nicks relating to *ahem* Oshwah. (*cough cough* OshwahSwifferJet *cough cough*) I will have a hostmask ending in @wikipedia/Yoshi24517. If someone is pretending to be me but does not have this hostmask, it will be clear they are an impersonator.
