About me

I am LostInRiverview, also known as LiR, Lord Liron, WeivrevirNiTsol, and LiR|Laundry. Or if you prefer, you can refer to me as Patrick, except on March 17th. I'm a young adult living in the Midwestern United States. I have been a fan of The Sims series since The Sims came out in 2000. Prior to that, I played SimCity 2000 and SimCity 3000, and I still own and often play SimCity 4 and other Sim games on occasion. In addition to Sim games, I also enjoy classic 16-bit era Sonic the Hedgehog games, the first RollerCoaster Tycoon game, and Minecraft. When not playing video games, I work and see friends and do normal people stuff. I also watch far too much Netflix.

My wiki experiences

I joined The Sims Wiki in August 2009, but did not become a regularly contributing member until 2010. During that year I became an administrator and, eventually, a bureaucrat. In September 2011 I retired from wiki-editing, but returned in early 2012 and resumed my administrative and (eventually) bureaucrat positions.

On the wiki you will often see me constantly bringing up new topics of discussion in the community discussions forum, or else making lots of edits to the project and policy pages. I tend to edit content articles randomly and don't really have any set projects usually. I am a frequent writer of The Sims Wiki News blogs, the Monthly Question blogs, and other various news posts, as well as monthly updates to featured article. I also help manage The Sims Wiki's Facebook and Twitter profiles (be sure to say hello!). All in all, I spend a great deal of my time hanging out on the wiki, keeping an eye on recent changes, and lurking in the IRC Channel.

I am the owner and operator of LiRBot, a bot that I sometimes use to make edits to pages on the wiki. If you notice LiRBot making bad edits or otherwise doing things it's not supposed to be doing, please let me know right away. If you have a task you'd like LiRBot to perform, please leave me a message on my talk page. Note that LiRBot uses AutoWikiBrowser (AWB), a semi-automated program which, while versatile, cannot perform some tasks. I'll do my best to help you with the tools that I have.

Pages I've created

Since a certain other user decided to list out the pages he's created, I've decided to do so as well. Note that this list does not include: subpages for another main article (like patch pages), a page created by merging together two or more already-existing pages (like Compilations of The Sims 3), redirect pages, disambiguation pages, and pages for Sim traits.
