Hello. I'm PseudoSkull, an admin here, and I probably spend more time here at Wiktionary than I should. But who can blame me; it's just such an interesting place to be! My main interest in editing here is in English idioms, slang and other informal language, surnames, US place names, and obscure words. I tend to add entries for terms as I come across them during reading, transcribing TV episodes (yes, I actually do that), etc. I also patrol recent changes sometimes, and revert vandalism when I see it.

A bit more about me[edit]

I was born in 1999 in the United States. Unfortunately, despite loving linguistics, geography, culture, and history, I have never had a chance to leave the country as of yet.

I've been here since 29 March 2014, but I changed accounts a few times between then and 2017. I have been an administrator at Wiktionary since 31 March 2018. I also created the Wiktionary Discord server that same year; see Wiktionary:Discord server for more information.

Outside of Wiktionary, I am also a retrogamer. I'm primarily active in the tool-assisted speedrun community. On the TASVideos website, I am a vested editor and player. I'm not incredibly active there right now though. If you're interested in seeing my activities and such there, see this page. For my YouTube channel, see here.

Anyway, that's about it. For anything you need to talk to me about concerning Wiktionary, or even otherwise, please direct it to my talk page.


an interesting thing to me, a lot of people will tell you, "oh, computer programming, I always wondered how that works". And yet if you throw a pack of cards on the floor, and ask them "OK, sort these cards, but TELL ME HOW you are doing it, what rules are you using to sort these cards, and how would you draw a flow chart of what you are doing" -- they mostly just say "dude, I was in the middle of a game, you fucking jerk".

For my convenience to help me get AutoSkull working even better.

  • Make it put surname on the BOTTOM, not the top, of the definitions list
  • Make an override feature for irregular plurals (for surnames with weird pronunciation happening to end in letters we'd usually pronounce a certain way)
  • Make it take out a space if there's an extra space between Template:also and first header

Unattested hall of fame[edit]

These are all not attested, but should be.

Some interesting things[edit]

  • Template:&lit should not be used on entries such as learning permits, because it would require making an entire unnecessary POS heading. "They all got learning permits this week." is using learning permits as a plural noun phrase, while "I will learn about Wiktionary as much as learning permits." is a...regular phrase.
  • As a kid, I always assumed finger was constructed like fing + -er. So I was like, if it's a finger, what does it fing? This was before I knew to look at etymologies.
  • alternate form: Alternative form of alternative form

Clean this up[edit]
