A Personal Note
It might not come as surprise that my most active years editing this site were when I was a teenager. Specifically, I joined RW at the ripe age of 13, making this particular account the day of my 14th birthday. I wouldn't advise anyone to go back and look at my contributions from that time, but they're about what you might expect from such a person. I was 17 and 18 years old during my most passionate time here - the prolonged user rights crisis in 2011, becoming a moderator, and later a member of the RMF Board of Trustees. Afterward, I became inactive and decided to forgo my involvement with RW. What I regret most about my time here was my own immaturity. Though, when I think back to it, I was more tenacious here than I could ever imagine being now. I've lost much of the spark and the fire behind my motives and opinions since stepping back from RW. That, at least, counts for something.
Messages on my talk page will still be read and answered to the best of my ability, if for some reason anyone has something to say.
I am an editor on RationalWiki, though no longer active. I was a moderator for a little over one year. (Before that, I was a mystical bureaucrat; all bureaucrats have since vanished into the waters of the Great Flood.) I welcome questions and I don't often bite the newbies. I also have a pretty high threshold for trolling, and don't use my banhammer very much at all. When banning is necessary, I like to go through a consensus-driven process that culminates in a community vote.
For a time, I was versed in the ways of MediaWiki. I made a bot running on Python and the pywikipedia library that did menial tasks.
