My friend etacar11 said she was tired of seeing a red link for my userpage so I decided to make it a purple / blue link.

My brain holds lots of trivial knowledge which may cause me to comment or modify many articles, as I wander around finding more trivial information.

I have a long history of playing MMORPGs such as Ultima Online, EverQuest, Dark Age of Camelot, and Star Wars Galaxies.

My username here is an homophone of "Surface".

Images I have uploaded to Commons can be found here.

Articles I have contributed to can be found here.

Barnstars and related awards can be found here.

I maintain a bot account that I use for recategorization / cat emptying work at Categories for deletion named User:Syrcatbot.

Funny quotes I have come across while editing here:

  • Most unfortunate of all eggs is Shirred egg - zero content. by Ezeu in an afd discussion. (Ed. - I am glad to see that Shirred eggs has garnered glory, appearing in DYK on April 12, 2012!)
  • Pound with asteroids and execute the sockpuppets. --YixilTesiphon Say hello 04:17, 12 December 2005 (UTC)
  • I'm sorry, SPUI, I can't open the pod bay doors. -- Curps 08:19, 10 April 2006 (UTC) in a discussion about Curps' pagemove blocking bot.
  • A free dome?! How could I refuse! -- Ppk01 on reverting typovandalism to Game demo
  • My opinion is that Courtney couldn't troll us any harder if she had came back in time from the future with a cybernetic trolling machine with which to troll us. Bunchofgrapes (talk) 17:54, 27 August 2006 (UTC) (from ANI)

Personal anecdote - if you are writing a neutral article on a band, and you feel that 'infectious grooves' is a valid word choice for the lede, you probably should just mark the page with {{db-g11}} yourself and save the rest of us some time.

And lol.

One of the saddest things I think I've had to do on wikipedia:

Wikipedia:Deletion review; 13:10 . . Syrthiss (Talk | contribs | block) (Reverted edits by Doc glasgow (talk) to last version by Haukurth) (Doc vandalized DRV)

Useful links:

Wikipedia:Image use policy User:Syrthiss/pages to go back to (questionable pages that I wanted to give some time to before afding them to see if they improve)

On 26 April 2011, I declared Watchlist bankruptcy. My watchlist contains 10000+ items. Is there a barnstar for that?
