Hello there, I'm Mithilesh! I've been a Wikipedia reader and contributor since March 8, 2005, when I found the website while doing some research. My first edit was about India but it was a copyright violation and removed accordingly. There is no link available to see that old edit and even the old archived deletion log is visible only to administrators. As such, my first logged edit was about IIITM Gwalior.

My username originates from The User Encyclopedia, but I like the simple reference, too. The thing is, one time I took a quiz called something along the lines of "What Matrix Character Are You?" and I got The Referencebuddy; it sounded like a cool name. I've never even seen The Matrix.

I haven't served in any other official Wikipedia capacity, although I ran for the Arbitration Committee at least thrice. I've had some real good fun here, though. I prefer to think of Wikipedia as a hobby rather than a task, and I am always really optimistic about things. I can't remember who said it, but I agree that "every day above ground is a good day".

Sometimes I like to peruse random pages or recent changes, fixing little formatting things. Sometimes I'll get on a kick and to a series of related edits. I don't really mind how much I do; I just do it as I see fit. If you've got something you need help with, though, don't be afraid to ask! You can leave me a message or send me an e-mail. I'll try to respond when I can. I used to contribute to Wiktionary a bit, and I started the RuneScape Wiki way back when.

I'm pretty busy these days with work training, so I'm not as active as I once was. Somehow I've racked up more than 1000 edits, including over 50 new articles. I feel like I have made a significant impact on the project for the time being, to say the least. I don't know where my life will take me, but I can assure you I'll always be a supporter of Wikipedia; it represents everything the Internet should be.

Thanks for visiting, and happy editing!
