Hello. I'm a 17-year old boy from Australia. You can also find me on Youtube, under the same username, and on Wikipedia under the name "Jc iindyysgvxc".

I found out about H*R when I did a Google search for something about text adventures back in March 2007. One of the links led to a forum where one of the posts had a link to the Sbemail "video games". I clicked the link to watch that Sbemail, and I got hooked.

I joined this Wiki in September 2009, although I have made occasional edits as anonymous IPs since May 2007. This is just one of the IP addresses I have used (I was a bit immature here back then). I was also a user of that IP address back in 2006 on Wikipedia (that IP address was once my school's IP address). It was blocked after a series of vandalism from other students at my school. I was a bit unhappy about that block, as you can see here on my discussion with another user about asking for that address to be unblocked. I was eventually blocked on Wikipedia under the "Jc iindyysgvxc" name (I was also immature on Wikipedia back then), but was unblocked nearly two years later.

Pages I've created

French subtitles (or at least sloppy attempts at them) I've created

Other subtitles- and French-related stuff

I've created German, Spanish, and Turkish subtitles for Intro 2 and Flag Intro (subtitles:intro2/de, subtitles:intro2/es, subtitles:intro2/tr, subtitles:flagintro/de, subtitles:flagintro/es, and subtitles:flagintro/tr), as well as Dutch, Portuguese, and Turkish subtitles for 500 The Cheats (subtitles:500cheats/nl, subtitles:500cheats/pt-br, and subtitles:500cheats/tr). I've also created the original English subtitles for SBCG4AP Advertisement. And my French work has not been limited to subtitles - I have gone as far as to [translate an entire talk page thread on this Wiki into French.

Current status

  • Waiting for these French subtitles of mine to be proofread
  • Waiting for a chance to buy the DVDs (or at least something from the store) or my 18th birthday so I can buy them without the need for permission, whichever comes first

HRWIKI-related things that annoy me

  • When anonymous users sign themselves with a user name
  • When a user makes more than two edits to a single page in the span of just a minute or two, especially if the page is one that was previously not edited for a long time
    • That, more often than not, it is anonymous users who do this
  • When a user doesn't listen to Show Preview concerns
  • When a user gets away with not using the Show Preview button
  • When I don't sign my own comments
  • When I have to proof-read my comments
  • This page
  • This page as well (well, mostly the fact that everyone seems to be infatuated with it more than any other article on the wiki)
  • When a user makes an edit only to immediately revert it
  • Long-unfinished subtitles scripts (why do we keep long-unfinished subtitles scripts, anyway?)
  • When pages are in Category:Articles for Discussion or a similar deletion category for a very long time
  • Alternating capitalisation (Category:Real band Running gags, Template:subtitlesLinks, just to name a few)
  • Adding a link to a category in the middle of a page, and that page becoming a member of that category
  • When the Wiki is unedited for hours
  • When a user changes their signature for a holiday and never changes it back
  • When a user points out in an edit summary that they need to go to bed or something along those lines
  • When a user creates a new article and links to that article on every page that mentions it
  • Outdated lists
  • Overly-descriptive edit summaries
  • Edit summaries that get cut off
  • User pages that have (almost) every single userbox in Fun Userboxes on them
  • When I check new messages on my talk page while logged out, and have to deal with the Orange Bar of Death as soon as I log in
  • When a user considers a small addition to an article a "contribution"
  • Edit conflicts
  • Comments in mainspace or project discussion pages that belong on someone's talk page, especially if that someone is me (like this one right here)
  • The IP user I have dubbed the "DVD Easter Eggs Vandal" (even though what he (?) did wasn't actually vandalism), because of his merciless editing, showing no signs of giving up, adding those facts despite the fact that they had not been added before (I personally don't know why they hadn't been added before, but I don't want this bloke to have waited until a time like this to add them), not creating an account, and just being a nuisance
  • That the basics has the least page views of any Sbemail article despite the fact that Strong Bad himself has said that it is his favourite e-mail
  • That everyone seems to like local news purely for the "its/it's" song and the other grammar songs instead of that e-mail's actual subject
  • That everyone seems to think Strong Mad is older than Strong Bad - he may be much bigger, but that doesn't mean he's older, especially given his intelligence
  • People who criticise 160 Seconds for being too similar to rock opera - sure, they were designed based on similar rules, but they're not the same ones
  • This comment (specifically, the one that says "Good. Also, I beat RickTommy.") (You did NOT beat me. I CHOSE not to post for that week because of the warning on my talk page.)
  • When long-untouched topics on the forum get bumped (I think there should be a rule feature that when a topic does not get any more posts for a set amount of time, it will be archived, just like at Gamefaqs)
  • Forum posts that just say "Oh" or "Thanks"
  • The forum user "parkjunil181", because not one of his (?) 70+ posts is sensible
  • The forum user "TwiceStyle", because of his (?) insistences that H*R is "more popular than ever" (doesn't he realise that this hiatus has scared off many fans? And that the site was at its most popular back in 2004 or so?) and the fact that he replies to old posts (or at least used to) (see above)
  • The new featured article format, for several reasons:
    • Putting in complicated suggestions is more difficult
    • Articles get featured without consensus
    • It has increased the chance of featuring articles that I am completely against featuring
    • I sometimes want an article featured "just because", but the way the format is designed, you have to give a reason, so I sometimes say things I don't mean
    • Some comments left over from the old format no longer make sense, causing more nonsensical comments such as this one
    • Not many users use this Wiki anymore (this change would have been better if it was done back in '07 or '08)
    • People praise it on purpose (much like those guys who said they liked Youtube's Beta Channels to annoy the thousands of users who absolutely disliked them) (as you can see here and here)
  • When people would interfere with ohers' suggestions instead of adding their suggestions to a new week in the old format
  • When featured article summaries are created either too early (i. e. a week or more before the summary comes live) or too late (i. e. after it is supposed to come live)
  • The lack of attention that FAS has been getting
  • IRC (why do people still use it? Surely it should be overshadowed by IM, right? IRC is very primitive.)
  • That users at least three years younger than me are allowed to buy stuff from the Store, and I'm not (why DO they have permission?)
  • "WHAT DA CRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAP?!?!?!?!?!" and "Just Pitch da Fweakin' Ball!!!!"
  • videography (well, mostly the fact that it's been the newest sbemail for 122 MONTHS AND COUNTING now)
