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.


My name is not "Cyclopedia", but Cyclopia. Don't know why so many people misspell it.

Who am I?[edit]

My nickname comes from this malformation. This may seem morbid. It's because actually, "curiosities" like that are open doors on the deep secrets of nature.

My edits[edit]

My editing pattern is sort of a WikiOgre-like. I can steer away from WP for ages, and then coming back here daily for a couple of months.

I do not fear to get my hands dirty with "bad" topics like sexuality, far-right politics or the like. I stand firmly to the principles of us not being censored. I however tend to steer away from the most popularly controversial tarpits like Israeli-Palestinian conflict, climate change etc. So please don't ask me to comment/edit such stuff -I simply don't have the nerves and will to do that.

My edit stats are here or here, depending on which tool you prefer.

To do[edit]

Also in general the Neofascism pages are lacking in info, verifying etc. (it's generally hard to find reliable informations about those movements, but...)


I have an account on the Wikipedia Review forum and one on Wikipediocracy. I don't belong to the WR/WO "community", however: I strongly disagree with many of their stances on WP, and I feel that they create more problems than constructive criticism. I created the accounts only in the attempt of having a civil discussion with the "other side". Quite unsuccessfully: apparently, according to WO, I am "reprehensible scum". Cute.
