About Me

Hi there! I am Phoenix Rider. I am one of the sysops, or administrators here on the Super Mario Wiki, and I'm here to help. If you have questions or concerns, drop me a line on my user talk page, or contact one of the other sysops if I'm not around.

I've been playing video games since I was 5 years old. I've always been a huge Mario, Zelda, and Starfox fan. I'm very loyal to Nintendo and will continue to buy their products as long as they keep making the same great game series I know and love. I live on the East Coast of the United States and own an N64, a Gamecube, a Game Boy Advance(sold), a Game Boy Advance SP, a Nintendo DS, a Nintendo DS lite, and most recently, a Wii.

I do, however, own an Xbox 360. If you also have one and would like to play against me, add my gamertag, Xynical. Just email me or leave a message on my talk page as well, so I know who I'm adding. Thanks! ^_^

I am a member of the elite Grammar Police. "To Serve and Correct", that's our motto. I will ruthlessly and mercilessly correct any and all grammatical errors with extreme prejudice, so if you would like to make my job a little easier, please proofread your edits to check for spelling and grammatical errors. The Grammar Police thanks you.

One of my main goals on this wiki is to clean out random frivolous add-ins that people add without a second thought. Speculation of any sort should not belong here, and I will be cleaning out any I come across. But don't worry, this doesn't mean I don't add content to articles. I do, however, do my best to make the articles as good as they can be, and if that means trimming fluff, so be it. Remember: A long article is not necessarily a good one.

I love to listen to music while surfing the Netz, so you can take a quick peek into my style by looking at the top of this page.

I joined the Super Mario Wiki on August 5, 2006.

I became a sysop on October 2, 2006.

My birthday is November 19, aka the day the Wii came out(!)

Edit Summaries

Often, I will abbreviate my edit summaries to give a brief description of what I am doing. For your convenience, the terms I use are listed below.

  • sp — Spelling fix
  • wc — Word Choice, replacing some awkward wording
  • rw — Rewrite, major or complete overhaul of a page
  • nPOV — Non-Point of View, removing any non-neutral stances in articles
  • S-V agreement — Subject-Verb agreement. Basic mechanics (i.e. "She has" instead of "She have"; "They were" instead of "They was", etc.) A FAR MORE COMMON ERROR THAN IT NEEDS TO BE

More will be added if and when I remember them and/or they come into use.

My Personality

File:Peekaboo badge.PNG, I'm watching you! Now don't get me angry, because if File:I spy badge.PNG trouble, it won't be your File:Lucky day badge.PNG. I'll File:Hammer throw badge.PNG at you as my File:First attack badge.PNG! Even if you're a File:Dodge master badge.PNG, it'll still be a File:Close call badge.PNG and you won't be File:Feeling fine badge.PNG. Messing with me won't File:Pay off badge.PNG. Of course, getting on my good side might help if you've got some of that File:Money money badge.PNG. I'm not saying it'll work, though. It's kinda File:All or nothing badge.PNG. If I still don't like you, don't complain, because I give no File:Refund badge.PNGs. That's my File:Last stand badge.PNG, so File:Chill out badge.PNG.
