About Me

Some Info: I'm WikiaWang, and I've been on wikiHow for around 2-3 years, editing here and there whenever I can get some time out of life. I'm originally from Maryland, but I currently am in Shanghai (so please be patient if I can't reply fast enough, but I'll do my best!)

What I Enjoy: I am what most people consider as someone who loves history, so if you need some history, I've got your back. :) And computers… programming, of course, is something I enjoy in my free time -- I'm developing a few programs, so leave a message if you have any questions regarding Lua or Python.

My wikiHow life: I joined wikiHow 3 years ago, but didn't start contributing until 2 years ago. I spend a lot of my time patrolling changes, helping other users, and doing some general maintenance tasks behind the scenes. Other than writing the occasional article, most of my time goes toward editing and fixing those small errors. If you've got any questions, go ahead and leave me a message. :)

Why I wikiHow: I continue to contribute because of the impact I can make -- every single edit has the potential to reach millions of people. Knowing that every small change can help another reader keeps me going. Another reason, of course, is the community. Everyone here is so kind and friendly, and I just can’t bear the thought to leave!

WikiaWang, guiding so many people in order to maintain the purity and righteousness of the wikiHow community. Scrolling through your talk page, I realized that you aren’t just a normal contributor. There are so many thanks and ghosts of answers and help embedded in your 6 current archives. I realized that’s you are one that people can turn to when help is needed, one that will guide people when put through hard times. You are one that many recognize as a hero, one that people will always receive kind and willingly support from. You always encourage and push the boundaries of wikiHow in order to achieve more excellence than we have ever seen. People will always receive polite and kind support from you. Therefore, you have made permanent marks in the hearts of all the wikiHowians you have ever talked to, and so all of the community thanks you. I know that this might’ve come as a surprise, but I present you with your very own Ambassador Barnstar.
