FFVI Kefka Laugh iOS

I am Technobliterator (テクノブリテレータ, tekunoburitere-ta?). I can help you with all your technical needs involving wikitext templates, CSS, Lua and JS (specialities: infoboxes, navboxes, codename modules). I can also help out updating pages with new information such as from guides, creating new pages, and other contributions for topics I am interested in (specialities: FFVI, FFVII, FFIX, FFX, FFXII). Finally, I can use sysop tools, and use Intangir Bot, whenever you need me to.


My Final Fantasy history
Technobliterator

I got into the series with Final Fantasy VII, recommended to me by family, and have loved it ever since. It remains one of my favorite videogames, but my all-time favorites in the series now are a tie between Final Fantasy VI and Final Fantasy XII, with Final Fantasy IX not too far behind. Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy XIV (though I haven't been subscribed in a while) are probably the videogames I've spent most hours playing. My favorite characters are also a tie, between Kefka Palazzo and Tifa Lockhart, and Auron is a close third. I love the series for its wide variety of unique settings with incredibly memorable characters and stories, its addictive and unique gameplay, and the incredible music that I always go back to.

For more of my thoughts on the series (yes this trend is almost as old as the wiki itself):

Final Fantasy Wiki info

I joined this wiki at the end of 2013 (even if my first few edits were in 2010, and were basically meaningless).

Since then, I've mostly been responsible for navboxes, infoboxes, templates, and writing pages, mostly focused on gameplay stuff more than lore. I also redesigned the main page I've also been responsible for major overhauls of the site, including renaming all pages from Title Case to sentence case, revamping the category system, and other major renames.

This section used to be a lot longer, but then it became a chore to maintain, so now you can get this small version. I've probably missed out on a lot of stuff, but in short, I really love this community and I've been very happy to contribute to the wiki for my favorite videogame series.

See my workplace of doom for a few things I am working on or testing. My main sandbox is here.


Wiki Manager
Hey there, I am the Wiki Manager of this wiki. This means I'm your first point of contact, and liaison to Fandom Staff. If you have any questions about your wiki, feel free to drop me a message!

Hey all! I'm a member of the Fandom Gaming Wiki Manager team. Aside from my role, you can also find me around as an admin on many wikis myself. I'm a member of the unofficial NWO logoNew Wiki Order team, where I help wikis with the team in a larger capacity on a whim. I'm also a VanguardVanguard, so I'll be able to help a lot with making your wiki portable. Aside from that, I'm an occasional contributor/lurker all around.

Among other things, I can help in particular with pywikibot, Lua, CSS, JavaScript, and portability, as well as all your MediaWiki needs. For pywikibot, the bot account I use on most wikis is Botobliterator. In the past, I used different bot accounts on different wikis, or my own when I couldn't set up an account, but I now make most on Botobliterator with a few exceptions.

Feel free to give a shout on my talk page or find me on Discord at Technobliterator#1311 if you need anything!

My Wikis

The following are just a few of the wikis I have a big presence on beyond a Wiki Manager.

Final Fantasy Wiki (sysop) Joined the site in 2013, and performed several overhauls of the site, including changing layouts, renaming almost all of the pages, redoing the infoboxes and navboxes from scratch, and writing many of the articles
Ratchet & Clank Wiki (bcrat) Was my first wiki in 2009, but I didn't become really involved until taking over as bcrat years later; now responsible for rewriting a lot of the pages, as well as for creating the infoboxes
Marvel's Spider-Man PS4 Wiki (founder) Founded the wiki in 2018 due to my love of Insomniac Games and of Spider-Man, and helped shape how the wiki looks
Jak and Daxter Wiki (bcrat) Basically learned most things on this wiki, and these days am still involved with how the site looks

Fandom history

On most wikis I have a large presence on, I have been responsible for:

  • Major design aspects of the wiki (the theme/skin, the main page, infobox/navbox/template design, etc.)
  • Creating and maintaining the biggest templates, either using Lua or wikitext (or Portable Infoboxes),
  • Large pywikibot jobs to reorganize the wiki, whether it be page names, links, categories, files, or other large overhauls
  • Writing/rewriting pages, often for topics that interest me
  • Performing maintenance of the SpecialPages

I joined Fandom (known then as Wikia) in 2009. As a huge geeky teenager with a Ratchet & Clank obsession, I was looking to build the best information resource on the web, until I found that one already existed: the Ratchet & Clank Wiki. I was very bad when I started there (it wasn't until around sevem years later that I became a bureaucrat and rewrote most of the wiki), until I joined the Jak and Daxter Wiki, where I learned most of the ropes. Later, my love of the Final Fantasy series took me to the Final Fantasy Wiki, which became my biggest job (and challenge) yet. I became an administrator at least a year or two later.

After this, I joined the Community Council, and then the Vanguard team. Later, the Jak and Daxter Wiki team formed an unofficial group, which we facetiously named New Wiki Order; as we'd polished and improved almost every aspect possible on the Jak and Daxter Wiki (which had otherwise stagnated due to no new games), we decided to take what we'd learned polishing an old wiki and take it to wikis that hadn't had the chance to apply the same attention to detail as they were a bit preoccupied on covering every new release. This meant taking over templates, Lua modules, CSS, and policies that we'd worked on. One of these wikis was one I founded, the Marvel's Spider-Man (PS4 game) Wiki. I was hugely excited that my favorite videogame developer since childhood were making a game based on my favorite superhero since childhood, so I had to get on that!

Currently, in addition to administrative duties, I am a member of the Wiki Manager team, a role in which I get to yet again take the expertise I've built since 2009 and help out other new and prospective admins along the way.


Videogames

My first ever videogame was Crash Bandicoot: Warped, on the first PlayStation, which I honestly loved a little too much. Later, my parents bought me a PlayStation 2, my first ever videogame console. I played a few games, but it was Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando where I completely fell in love with the hobby. The game is a real blend of genres, so I got to experience bits of everything. Became obsessed with the series, along with Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy and Sly 2: Band of Thieves.

Later, my cousin showed me two games from his childhood that I once again completely fell in love with: Final Fantasy VII and the first Metal Gear Solid. Needless to say, I went on to play every mainline entry of both series, and still replay the games all the time to this day. Final Fantasy became my favorite series, with Final Fantasy VI and Final Fantasy XII being my two favorites, while Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater easily became my favorite game of all time.


Other

My favorite genre of music is hip hop, with a focus on West Coast hip hop from the pre-2000s (2Pac, Dr. Dre, etc.). While I do like other styles of music, hip hop is what I always end up coming back to. Not only do I love the beats, but there's something powerful, authentic, and defiant about it, and the ability of its artists to tell stories is unique. Outside hip hop, in particular I love Daft Punk and Bob Marley. I'm also a big fan of musical theater, and love performing on stage.

As far as films go, I grew up with the Sam Raimi Spider-Man films, along with Star Wars. While I don't get the chance to watch a whole lot of films, I do enjoy the Marvel Cinematic Universe, mostly due to Guardians of the Galaxy. My favorite films are The Matrix, Terminator 2, Empire Strikes Back, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Pulp Fiction.
