At least three things in this pic of me are inaccurate.
Your guess as to what they are. ;-)
Hi there! I'm 37, live in North Little Rock, AR, and work for the FDA as a chemist. I'm married, no kids, and one cat. I discovered TV Tropes
a few years ago and have found it truly addictive.
I'm a huge fan of anime
and keep up with and edit several such articles here (see the list below, it's semi-comprehensive). I'm also an avid reader. I played the Diablo
games for a long time, then got really obsessed with World of Warcraft
for a few years, but now I'm burned out on that and have gotten into Diablo III
. I've also become a big fan of Warhammer 40,000
...I've been reading the novels for a few years now and am making my first forays into the game itself.
My Wiki experience started with The Other Wiki
but I've pretty much given up on it. Feel free to correct my edits, as I'm sure I'll make mistakes with tropes and examples as I go.
In case you're wondering, it's pronounced "Willbur".
Wiki-related stuff for me
I'm a moderatornote
, so if there's anything along those lines you need me to address, drop a PM and I'll see what I can do.
I'm also a Herald for Image Pickin'. The Herald system now sends automatic PMs to newcomers to Image Pickin'. My job is to answer any replies to the PMs, and help newbies in general.
Also, since tropers can't edit others' pages anymore: If you've got a comment you want to add, PM it to me and I'll add it at the bottom if it passes muster. :-)
Tropes for me
Yes, I know tropes aren't supposed to be associated with real people. No, I don't much care.
Me as a Troper

TV Tropes pages to my credit
Pages essentially rebuilt from scratch
Some TV Tropes entries I either routinely follow/edit or have edited and am still tracking for the hell of it
Works (most are highly recommended)
Feel free to leave a comment/question/greeting/whatever if you'd like!
: Can I ask why you're right-justifying what seems like every image on the wiki? I just need to know why
: (knock knock knock) Willbyr? (knock knock knock) Willbyr? (knock knock knock) Willbyr?
