I am AttemptToCallNil (can be abbreviated to "ATCN" or "Attempt", writing it as "Nil" is discouraged). I am an administrator on this wiki, as well as an administrator and a bureaucrat on the Russian wiki.
I had a bot coded first in Java, then attempted to be re-coded in Rust, but this is a substantial and long-term project that will most likely never be done, and with UCP, is likely to end up completely meaningless.
I have been editing wikis since late 2012, when I made lots of anonymous edits on the Russian wiki. I registered there in October, and became an administrator there in March next year. I was previously known as "GreenStone", then as "User GreenStone" because I had to urgently make up a new name while under offline stress. Unfortunately, in late 2013 and early 2014 most or all other Russian wiki admins became completely inactive and silent, which was followed by a massive real-life crisis (with long-term, most likely permanent negative consequences for me).
