Block Me



I am currently preparing for finals. Thus, I will not check Wikinews on a daily basis. Please e-mail me if you need anything.

Hey there, Wikinewsies! If you're looking here, you either have a question, complaint, or just want to learn a little bit about me. To start things off, I suppose I should say something about how I got involved with Wikinews. My first published article was Massive suicide car bomb in Kabul kills 18, including two U.S. soldiers. In previous years, I was active on SWMT, and was an organizer of the Wikimania Atlanta bid, which eventually failed.

These people taught me a lot about HTML, wikicoding, and journalism in itself. Since my first few edits, I like to think that I've matured, if only a bit. Since then, I've built a couple of websites for my local area, helped with several non-profits, and become a psuedo-replacement for our school's technology coordinator in many cases.

I can't wait to get back to active duty with these people. So, I'm going to stop writing my userpage now, and go back to typing {{archive}} a thousand times. --Thunderhead 06:02, 6 January 2010 (UTC)
