I joined Wikia back in 2011, on July 16. The first wiki I joined was the RuneScape Wiki
. Back then, I was just adding a couple bits of useful information to a few articles and using my knowledge to improve a few other pages too. I wasn't really that active on Wikia at the time, but I became active later next year in around May 2012 on the RuneScape Wiki. Eventually I quit the game RuneScape, and quit that Wiki. But that opened up a lot of spare time for me to be doing something else. (I did and still do go to their chat
I decided to use the time mainly on editing wikis.
After a recommendation in the RuneScape wiki chat, I joined the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Wiki
on 25 June 2012. I was active in that wiki chat for a while, being granted chat moderator rights on 8 August 2012. However I decided to expand outside of just the wiki chat, and started to edit the wiki actively. I started helping out with a lot of images and (re)uploading images to the wiki, to the point where I nominated myself for Image Control
rights and got them on 12 September 2012. I did many edits, managed to succeed the editcount of most admins on that wiki currently in around 3 months than they did in a whole year.
I also was interested in editing another wiki which was the Answers Wiki
. I joined the Answers Wiki on September 20, and did a mass of tagging pages for deletion. The Answers Wiki had few active admins, and lacked them. I bravely made my Request for Adminship about 2 weeks after joining, and it passed.
I was granted the rights on October 1.
In addition on that day, I decided to make a Request for Adminship
on the MLP wiki too, and it also passed.
I was granted the rights on October 9.
Now, I am a recognized individual at both wikis who helps keep the wiki free from spammers and vandals, and help out with things if I can.
Recently I decided to join the Community Central chat
, as well as sometimes monitoring the recent changes
to help with things if I spot it.
I also have started to edit quite frequently on the Pokémon Wiki
I find editing and improving things a wonderful pastime, as well as making great friends in the process. I have no doubt made many great friends on Wikia, as well as learning things along the way there, and hope to stay for a while now.
