Hello, I'm Pythoncoder. I edit in a lot of areas, including fixing typos, patrolling Recent Changes and New Pages, and rejecting AfC submissions with out-of-place chemistry terms. (I frequently use Twinkle for the last 3.) I also participate in RfAs and proposals from time to time; I used to participate in more XfDs but deletionists were getting on my nerves too much and may have contributed to my need for frequent wikibreaks. (That and my general Wikipediholism.) Have a question about my edits or Wikipedia in general? Click that “Talk” button at the top of this page.

I also edit Wikia and RationalWiki under this same username. I'm still waiting for TV Tropes to send me a confirmation email. I am not related to User:PythonCoder, who last edited 6 years ago.

I do not edit or otherwise contribute to any Wikimedia article or project on behalf of any employer, client, or affiliated person, organization, or other entity; nor do I receive any compensation for any edits or other contributions.

Why do I edit Wikipedia?

  1. Because it's fun.
  2. Because it's fun.
  3. Because I said so.
  4. Because it's fun.

This user is a member of the Association of Inclusionist Wikipedians.

The motto of the AIW is conservata veritate, which translates to "with the preserved truth".
This motto reflects the inclusionist desire to change Wikipedia only when no knowledge would be lost as a result.


This user is a member of the

Association of Wikipedians Who Dislike Making Broad Judgments About the Worthiness of a General Category of Article, and Who Are in Favor of the Deletion of Some Particularly Bad Articles, but That Doesn't Mean They Are Deletionists


Est omnino difficile iudicare inclusionis meritum cuiusdam rei in encyclopædia cum ratio sciendi quid populi referat incerta sit, sed nihilominus aliquid encyclopædiam dedecet

It is generally difficult to judge the worthiness of a particular topic for inclusion in an encyclopedia considering that there is no certain way to know what interests people, but some topics nevertheless are not fit for an encyclopedia.

This motto reflects the desire of these Wikipedians to be reluctant, but not entirely unwilling, to remove articles from Wikipedia.

Yes, I'm a member of both. Deal with it.
