Hello! This is my me page!

wikilink.png For some reason this wiki doesn't use the User: namespace, so, hey, I'll go along with whatever. I don't currently have a photo of myself (no digital camera + faulty scanner = no photo) so my avatar will have to make do! Despite outward appearances this character is not from a Zelda game, but instead the aptly-named Wiki: Master of Tales MMO. I don't play it, but I like this Link lookalike! I'm currently most active by far at StrategyWiki, where I've authored several videogame guides.

I have a lot of experience with MediaWiki and it's my wiki engine of choice. You can tell this by my fancy table usage and knowledge of MediaWiki configurations. I mean, try to click on the picture above. Go on, click it! Ha, see? No Image: page at all!

As for what other wikis I edit on, here's a sort of WikiNode or whatever it is people call it. This list isn't complete so don't be surprised if I've missed several significant wikis I've worked at.
